If you’re a huge fan of Star Wars and love to bring that into different parts of your life and hobbies this is a must have mod for you so you can really enjoy these lightsabers in a different way.
What is Magicka Sabers?
Magicka Sabers is an awesome mod for your weapons in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim that was first uploaded onto Nexus in December 2011 and has been update a few times since. This mod will allow you to have lightsaber themed weapons to make it feel like you’re actually bringing in a piece of the Star Wars universe to your play through.
To use these items you are able to craft any of them at a blacksmith forge and can also temper them at a grindstone which adds gameplay with these sabers. Your character will need to have the deadric smithing perk if you would like to actually be able to craft these items.

Magicka Sabers Updates
There have been a few updates to the mod that have added a few interesting changes that can help you enjoy the mod even further. The first update was the 0.2 update that added the following:
- Added different sounds for drawing your saber and swinging your saber
- Changed the saturation of the colours

Unfortunately, after the 0.3 update we have gotten no new updates to this mod which is incredibly disappointing and we probably won’t be seeing any more updates in the future.
