I'm also relatively new to mods but having taken the plunge, I'm hooked.

The ones I have tried:

Ascension (I am not one for really nasty battles but Ascension adds some additional roleplay elements which I find essential now that I've played it). I generally install Tougher Illasera, Tougher Gromnir and Tougher Yaga-Shura, and leave the rest. I didn't enjoy Tougher Demogorgon.

Angelo NPC (because I dislike Anomen) - my review is here

Edwin Romance (also because I dislike Anomen - a woman needs more choice!)

Romantic Encounters (just don't install the Edwin component if you have the Edwin romance installed)

Unfinished Business (haven't tried all of it, but the parts I've tried were good)

Assassinations (THE mod if you want to kill people instead of, or as well as, helping orphans and finding lost gongs)

Iylos NPC (a non-romanceable male monk for ToB only. He's an interesting character, and he kicks arse. So if you ever want to try an SoA only NPC, you can replace them with this guy once you reach ToB. Sorted. You can download him from Spellhold Studios).

There are still many more I intend to try - trying Turnabout for the first time on my current game, once I reach that far. I'm very wary of bugs, but most of my mods have behaved very well so far. I think the key is not to install too many at once, and do a clean install between each playthrough.

I agree that it would be good if Icelus gave us a revised list of his recommended mods. However, since he has stated a dislike for NPC mods, here are the two that I have enjoyed the most Saerileth and Fade. I think that Saerileth in particular is very well written and has enjoyable quests in it that add to the plot.

I'm not sure what my favrite is, but it's surprising there's no mod to fix all the 'NPC appears busy' bugs yet. Also, what's up with my game window suddenly moving to a corner after installing some mods? The latest one I installed that caused that was the Aurora Boots and Stuff mod.

The Bioware patch fixes that. It should always, always, always, always always always be installed before any mods.

Wait, is it the patch made obsolete by TOB or something else entirely?

You need the ToB patch if you've got ToB - the SoA patch does nothing. See the 4th bullet point on the fix list there.
