Ever wished to play with a vampire in Bethesda’s latest RPG; The Elder Scrolls : Skyrim? Well, here is a little guide for you to turn your character into a blood sucking vampire.
Comprehending The Darkness
The first step you’ll be needing to take, if you want the life of a vampire will be getting affected by the disease known as Sanguinare Vampiris. The easiest step to get infected by this disease will be getting into a fight with vampires, let them attack you and you’ll ultimately get a warning of your morbid status.
You’re not ready yet, once you’ll get affected by this disease, you will get the time of three days to get it cured and return to the normal state. Once three days are passed, you’ll be a vampire and finding a cure will be difficult.
Keeping Monsters Cornered
Playing as a vampire can be a catchy reconciliation act. The longer you stay without blood, the weaker you get in many primal aspects; fire will do major damage and will effect your health, stamina and magicka in total and they will stop regenerating once you step into the sunlight. Nevertheless, the boosted stages offer some unparallelled powers that will make staying with out blood for few days a more captivating prospect.
There are 4 basic degrees of raised vampirism. 1st stage is when you are at when you’ve recently feasted; you rise to the next degree for a 24 hour full time period you go without blood, until the 4th and last degree.
In order to diminish your thirst for blood, you’ll need to hunt for a sleeping human being, lodges and faction cantons are good for this. Approach the sleeping prey and activate it to drink the blood from their bodies, doing this will revert your disease to level 1.
Surviving With The Undead
At first stage, you will be capable to approach three vampire abilities: Vampire’s Sight ( It will improve your vision in darkness without draining magicka). Vampiric Drain ( Destruction Spell draining 2 health points from your victims) and Vampire’s Servent ( Resurrect a dead creature of level 6 or lower per day to aid you). You will also get a 25 base resistance to ice, figure will increase when you level up.
After reaching stage 2, you will get; Vampire’s Seduction ( creature and people till level 8 can be scared or stop fighting for 30 seconds) as well as an advanced Vampiric Drain ( Absorbing 3 health points per second) and Vampire’s Servant ( Affecting creatures of level 13 or less)
Level 4 and 5 keeps on bumping up the power level of Vampiric Drain ( 4 and 5 health points respectively) and Vampire’s Servant (21 or less creatures and 30 or less creatures respectively). The 4th degree also adds another ability, Embrace of Shadows, this allows you become invisible for 3 minutes, but only once in a day.
Freeing Yourself From The Disease
Healing vampirism is not an easy effort. However, you’ll have the choice to trade it with another disease, Lycanthropy, but it is only a part of Companions questline and it gives you another adversity to manage.
A complete riddance from this disease is possible, but you will be needing the help of A Morthal mage known as Falion. Once you meet him, he’ll give you a quest which includes finding a Black Soul Gem and filling it. The specialty of Black Soul Gem over others is that it can only hold a human soul. Keep in mind that you need to kill someone if you want to get rid of this disease. If you’re a Dark Brotherhood assassin and already receiving quests for killing humans then it’s not a big deal.
