On a search for the coolest Khajiit mods on the web? Well you’re in luck.
There are hundreds of Khajiit mods out there for Skyrim. And I don’t want you to going into an endless search testing god knows how many, so I’ve collected the best ones in a nice little list.
A small disclaimer before we begin, though. I’ve always been an Argonian person. And because of that I have to admit something:
I feel that this mod list came out even better than my Argonian-themed mod list, and I’m a bit tilted because of it. Good news for you, confusing feelings for me.
In any case check these out, give ‘em a go and tell me what you think of them!
15. Khajiit Speak
This mod id rated as one of the best you can download if you’re looking for a full game overhaul. So it naturally caught my eye as soon as I saw it for the first time.
It basically overhauls the entire way that Khajiits talk in the game, which enhances immersion by creating proper speech patterns on these felines to match the original intention of Bethesda, which wasn’t consistent across the game.
The creators of this mod truly outdid themselves. Honestly more than I originally gave them credit for.
The entire mod covers all dialogue in the vanilla game – and this includes all of the DLC and expansions too!
14. Khajiit – Sense of Smell
Man, this mod is so freaking cool. Imagine having the abilities of the Predator, but instead of it being some weird modern alien tech, you’re using your damn sense of smell to feel the location of your enemies.
This is awesome. I love it and fully recommend it.
The Sense of Smell ability gets added to your perk tree and you’ll be able to see a small colored cloud around your enemies, which represents your Khajiit sense of smell being put to the test.
13. Alternate Start
Is it just me, or does the original start of Skyrim not seem to fit a Khajiit? It just feels a bit… weird to see a Khajiit in such a bizarre situation.
Besides, aren’t you just tired of the old “hey, you’re finally awake”?
This mod will fit most Khajiit playthroughs much better, while also providing a change to the Skyrim story.
We’ve all been in the shoes of the captured adventurer multiple times. If we’re going to start the game as a Khajiit, it’s time for things to change.
Try this one out, set yourself for the ideal start for your roleplay, and see what story you can come up with.
12. Khajiit Ear Rings
We all know (probably) that the Khajiit are to Skyrim what gypsies are to Europe, and this Khajiit Ear Rings mod just fits them all too well.
The Khajiit culture is ingrained into Tamriel’s society. So it’s easy to tell they brought most of their jewelry from Elsweyr.
However, not all Khajiit have earrings0 And they’re rather impossible to find.
With this mod, though, you’ll be able to wear those earrings and craft them yourself. There truly isn’t anything to hate about this – it’s as lore-friendly as it gets.
11. Cover Khajiit – Better Khajiit Textures
Dial up your graphics with this freebie, it turns the basic Khajiit textures into something taken out of a Hollywood film.
It’s truly amazing what a small change in textures can do to a game.
And if you’re playing as a Khajiit, you’re going to want to use this.
Watch those pesky pixels get completely obliterated from your screen with this super HD replacement of all Khajiit skins!
10. SC – Khajiit Improvement
This mod also makes some changes to the textures of Khajiit in-game, but I’m adding it to this list because it also changes the way they “morph”.
Have you ever felt that emotions aren’t well expressed by these feline creatures?
If so, this mod will help a lot.
I mean, we all know that Skyrim characters have always seemed to lack emotion. But it becomes an even bigger issue with races like the Khajiit or the Argonians.
This mod reworks the way these cats move and interact with others, plus some graphics updates, so it’s worth a try to see if you like this better than other options.
9. Khajiit Sprint and Sneak
Well this is something I didn’t know I needed until I installed it.
I never really noticed how weird it was for Khajiit to move like regular people… until I gave this mod a go.
It just makes the movements of all Khajiit feel so realistic in some weird cat-like way, you know?
One would never think that any character movement in the game looks out of place. But once you install this mod, you will never be able to go back to the vanilla Khajiit-walk. Trust me.
8. Portable Campsite
Even though this mod isn’t directly a Khajiit mod per se, it’s one of the best you can get if you intend to role play as a Khajiit wanderer.
Use your campsite and rest at night after a long day of traveling, or light up your campfire in the woods to rest after a long walk.
Portable Campsite is the first mod that I recommend you download if you’re going for an immersive Khajiit playthrough.
It’s one you’ve gotta try first to see why it’s so great.
7. SRM Companion Cart
Now here’s another mod that fits the immersive RPG experience like no other.
This adds a companion cart that you can ride, which comes packed with things that’ll help a wary Khajiit on their travels.
Set up a camp and establish yourself as the most prominent wander-trader in the world of Tamriel. Assuming that’s your goal, of course.
6. Raj’Dya – The Khajiit-Themed Player Home
Skyrim is a long ways away from Elsweyr, but Raj’Dya is the closest you’ll get to feeling at home in the frozen lands of the north.
This mod adds one thing, and does it well: the best player house for a Khajiit that I’ve encountered in the Skyrim modding community.
It’s located in the northernmost part of the map, just above a small island that resembles a small desert, with a little shack that actually has much more on the inside than you’d think.
There’s no better place for a Khajiit to call home.
5. Your Market Stall
It’s cool to roleplay as a trader and all, but this mod takes it to the next level.
With “Your Market Stall” you’ll be able to actually set up a market stall and sell stuff to wanderers and citizens, really anyone that might come across it.
The idea is to have your own market and set it up around any city. But you can also have it set up on a road if you like, pretty much anywhere you can drum up business.
Now you can finally sell all those items at a fair price (or rip people off, up to you!)
4. Inigo – The Khajiit Follower
Why travel through the lands alone when you could have a fully-voiced companion by your side?
I’ve already reviewed Inigo in my other companion mods list, but I couldn’t help but recommend it here to my Khajiit-loving friends.
This is by far one of the best companion mods in the Skyrim community.
Being a Khajiit makes it an obvious choice for an immersive companion. But this is one dope MF’er to have with you too.
3. Khajiit Den and Tavern – The Scratching Post
It really sucks for Khajiit and Argonians to be judged so much by humans.
That’s why the Khajiit set themselves up with a fantastic tavern where only members of their own kin are allowed to access freely.
Well, with this mod anyway.
The Scratching Post is located on the outskirts of Riften. Pay it a visit and experience what it’s like to live among other Khajiit, without the fear of being judged by anyone!
2. Toggle Khajiit Night Eye
This mod allows you to use the Night Eye ability of the Khajiit whenever you see fit.
Activate and deactivate to your liking, all to access one of the most useful powers of this feline race!
You can also set how much power you want the ability to have, since it comes with toggle options too.
This brings much more depth to being a Khajiit (I mean, more than in the base game—I admit they’re pretty cool as they are).
1. Moonpath to Elsweyr
If you’ve been around the Skyrim modding community for a few years, then you already knew this mod was going to place first on my list.
Moonpath to Elsweyr opens up an entire new questline that will take you from the coldest cave in Skyrim to the hot deserts of Elsweyr, the motherland of all Khajiit.
This mod stands out as one of the best Skyrim mods out there – not only when it comes to Khajiit-related additions, but in general.
So if you’re looking for a real complete Khajiit playthrough I highly recommend starting with this mod first, then looking over the list to pick & choose some others.
