Sylvanas As Playable Character or Follower in Skyrim

Recommended Posts


It seems it's WoW characters in other games day, as the two main characters of the Shadowlands cinematic both got new interpretations in different formats! While Bolvar went to train for the re-match in Soulcalibur 6, Sylvanas is appropriately preparing for her exploration of the Shadowlands over in Skyrim. You can check her out over at Nexus Mods, where she's apparently her own race, and there's a link for Sylvanas as a follower in there too. Meanwhile, let's take a look:




The "Adventure Series: Sylvanas playable race" mod not only brings the Banshee Queen's signature look to the Elder Scrolls 5, however, but also has her items and some abilities as well, including Wail of the Banshee, Fangs of Kalecgos and more.



Sylvanas is treated just like any other undead in the game, she will be affected by things that hurt them.
Sylvanas can breathe underwater.
Sylvanas health regen is very slow. (balance reasons and because undead)
You can use potions and things that affect health regen
She will have some type of cannibalism mechanic to heal too.
Her Magicka regen is slightly slower.
Her Stam regen is higher.

Starting Stats:
Health: 130
Magicka: 50
Stam: 80

WIP - This will be an innate ability, unlike my LE version. Should be out 8/23/2020 or 8/24/2020

While sneaking indoors or out of direct light you will turn into a shade increasing how strong your stealth is.
Note: You can disable this via the MCM if you do not like the effect every time you go into stealth, I added this as it was a complaint in my original verison in normal Skyrim

Gains the ability to channel dark energy into her arrows, causing arrows to strike for 2x their damage. This ability is gained at level 10 and requires 30 Mana. To use this ability simply fully draw the bow and after 3 seconds the ability will start assuming you have the requirements.

Let out a wail that stuns and staggers opponents. Can be used once a day. Books that teach the words of power are located as follows.


These set of daggers can be found in Bleak Falls Barrow, in the room with the Dragon Wall in front of the chest. 

Can be found in High Gate Ruins, by the dragon wall.

 Can be crafted at the Sky Forge once you have attained the Unfoul Shards.

Sylvanas armor scales with level, and you can create the armor by going to the MCM menu and toggling the spell. Using the spell will create her armor.

You can add this into your game via the console (Search: Deathwhisper) , it is high poly and does not animate at the moment and I can't add it in as core of the game until I either figure out how to optimize and animate it or at least animate the string. But I left it in for those who don't mind.

You also have to add these to the console, the arrows are also pretty high poly but the quiver is custom textured and fits her theme. Again I am not sure how badly this affects performance so I did not add it into the core mod just yet.

I would not want that woman treading behind me in the wilds, lol.

Those are neat ideas and good works though to the modder.

Imagine an Azeroth revamp of the game?


I remember in Morrowind, Oblivion, then Skyrim, always making orcs and making them some inspired iteration of Nerzhul or Grom Hellscream. Good times.

"Ok, the dragon and his cult followers are just beyond that ridge.    You've got my back right Sylvannas?"

5 minutes later the legend of the dragonborn comes to an end with a dagger to the back.

"I did say I had his back."

      Another announcement, another meme onslaught. This time around the Jailer seems to have gotten the brunt of it, as his appearance in the story video inspired many fan interpretations, with some amazing one and some with... genuinely frightening connotations.
      We'll start with my personal favorite, as it's the perfect It's Always Sunny meme and a pretty damn good Avengers one as well, so big congrats to dorm_five!

      After that excellent Dr. Strange/Khadgar crossover we move on to a more general one, as CD Projekt Red gets some of the heat as well:

      And then we're right back to the Jailer, who looked a lot more intimidating before the redditors went at him, as they zeroed in on his wonderfully luscious lips:


      Then we have a solid use of the new WoW meme format:

      And even though we already covered this one before, the new Santa deserves one more look.

      But we saved the best (worst?) Jailer one for last, and we assure you you won't look at him the same way after this one, as Alshainkt really nailed it:

      In case you weren't aware, the November 23rd Shadowlands release date comes exactly 16 years after the original World of Warcraft release date, to the day! Whether this had any effect on the actual date choice is unclear, as it wasn't mentioned in any of the official posts, but it's a great coincidence if it didn't!
      This also means that the Anniversary event will be live when Shadowlands launches, as it usually lasts from November 16th to the 30th (with the last event actually taking place over 2 months, since it was the big 15-year one). Even though we haven't gotten any specifics on it, it's safe to assume we'll at least be getting the same things as the usual yearly anniversaries. This actually includes a 16% XP Celebration Package buff, which will make leveling to 60 even faster, unless Blizzard decide to somehow modify it so it doesn't work in the Shadowlands. You can check out what was available in addition to the XP buff during the last non-15-year event here.

      Maybe we can get a re-issue of the 15th anniversary Collector's Editions? Please Blizz?
      So, there are many reasons to rejoice when Shadowlands comes around, and it's really great that the release date coincided with the exact 16-year anniversary of Vanilla!

      Update: Game Director Ion Hazzikostas has now also commented on the issue.

      As we just got the official Castle Nathria raid release schedule, including Mythic releasing on December 15h, it seems the World First race (and everyone else heading into the maximum difficulty at launch) will be clearing it during or very close to the holidays. This was somewhat unexpected, and I personally even thought they might delay the Mythic part of the raid specifically for this reason, but we now know that isn't the case.
      As you'd expect, it didn't take long for the community to bring out an old blue post where Blizzard specifically state that they don't want players to have to play during the holidays:
      As mentioned in the tweet, the key word there is "try", so Blizzard were very much aware of their own policy when making this particular decision. There were less subtle and understanding/constructive posts as well, with titles like "Times change I think. For the worse." and similar, as well as some actually pretty great meme-y posts:

      The reality of the situation is a little more complex, as the raid race itself will likely be finished in the first reset, at least for the very top guilds, but there are many, many more guilds outside the top 10 (or even top 100) that will still be pushing and playing during the holidays. While delaying Mythic only would have been a weird and unprecedented decision, players would probably understand, and the top raiders that will be racing would welcome it, but it seems it's set in stone now, so at least we get some World First entertainment just before and probably during the holidays as well!

      Here comes a response to the holiday-related release of the first Shadowlands raid from Game Director Ion Hazzikostas, as he talks about how a potential delay would affect the pacing of the expansion and how trying to avoid situations like this isn't always possible. The response comes in relation to a WarcraftLogs tweet and a reply to it, as originally spotted by Wowhead.
