How to become a Vampire

Becoming a Vampire

If you wish to become a werewolf or vampire in elder scrolls online you must get infected, below are the only ways to do this.

  • Find rare bloodfiends in Reaper’s March, The Rift, or Bangkorai. To become a vampire you need to get a condition called Vampirism, which you get if you are bitten by rare bloodfiends that spawn only at certain spots, in certain zones and at a certain time. They only spawn at night during the new moon phase. If they are killed they won’t spawn until another night.  Once you become infected go to the nearest wayshrine where you’ll be able to start the quest Scion of the Blood Matron. Once you have completed this quest, you will unlock the Vampire skill line.
  • You can also get infected by another player, who is already a vampire, and has leveled the skill line enough to gain the passive “Blood Ritual”.

The suitable level for the quest line is 38, although there are reports of people finishing the quest at 20.

Vampire spawn locations

Werewolves and Vampires share the same spawn areas and depending on the moon phase, one or the other will spawn. This phase seems to last 1.5 real days, and the phase repeats every 8 days.

Advantages of becoming a vampire are:

  • There is no transformation involved when it comes to vampirism. This means you benefit the perks of being a vampire all the time.
  • Vampires have amazing Active and Passive Skills which become even stronger at night, putting them on huge advantage against other creatures.
  • When it comes to werewolves vs. vampires, the poisonous attacks, on the Vampire skill line, put them on a huge advantage.
  • You have a lot of role-playing opportunities.

Disadvantages of becoming a vampire are:

  • Although vampires are strong at night, when sun comes back up, strength of abilities decrease.
  • Vampires take 50% more damage from fire attacks. This means the Fighter’s Guild can easily take them out.
  • Vampires need to feed on enemies or other players every 30 minutes in order to stay strong and in stage 1. Failure to do so will result in a decrease of health regeneration. On the other hand, vampire abilities cost less to cast. To feed and decrease your timer, sneak up behind an enemy or player and wait for the prompt.

Stage 1: (30 minute timer) no additional effects

Stage 2: (60 minute timer) -25% health regeneration and -20% cost on all vampire skills

Stage 3: (90 minute timer) -50% health regeneration and -40% cost on all vampire skills

Stage 4: (no timer) -75% health regeneration and -60% cost on all vampire skills

Cure

To completely cure vampirism, you need to visit the same NPC that you went to for the Scion of the Blood Matron quest. He will tell you to visit a priest of Arkay in a nearby town, who can remove the condition for a small fee. If you ever decide to become a vampire again you will continue from whatever level you reached in the skill line before you were cured.

They only spawn at night, during the full moon. Once you become infected go to the nearest wayshrine where you’ll be able to start the quest Hircine’s Gift. Once you have completed this quest, you will unlock the Werewolf skill line.
  • You can also get infected by another player, who is already a werewolf, and has leveled the skill line enough to gain the passive “Bloodmoon”.

The suitable level for the quest line is 38, although there are reports of people finishing the quest at 20.
