    a lot of people are saying, “oh I’m going vampire night blade focused on bow” well vampire is not a choice, you m ust find a rare spawn mob and let it bite you to unlock the skill line, THIS IS VERY HARD TO DO, so don’t get your hopes up on being a vampire.

    ok 7 day cool down, rare spawn so hard for anyone to find, and you have to catch someone who’s a vampire at the right time before they have used their b its. so like i said, its not an easy choice you can just make.

    Trust me, with the ability of being able to spread Vampirism, it’s going to spread like wildfire. The number in PvP will double each weak. I think people will have difficulty getting rid of Vampirism.

    they should just change their spawn locations so pts guys won’t be able to ‘monopolize’ on vampirism in the first couple of weeks. from what i’ve heard as soon as someone finds the spawn it won’t appear for a while. so pts players that want to become vampires will rush to the exact location  to make sure they are the first ones.

    It’s funny, everyone wants to be a vampire but they forget two KEY things that will hinder them in pvp sun and fire.

    I’m not running away, i’m just making a tactical retreat.

    I’ve yet to hear from a PTS guy who actually wants to be a vampire.

    This is why most of them are just going dark elves, which goes a long way toward mitigating the fire damage.

    sun have no effect on vampire in ESO… sorry… on the other side the 50% additional damage from fire… well… that hurt pretty bad… I already see people crying for getting oneshotted by a random hit of a fire ballista… ouch!!!!

    on the other side werewolf 50% additional damage from poison maked them only fear the bow users… well there will be plenty in AvA… but never as much as fire damagin effect…

     

    for the op… that is a wild dream… first month… surely there will be a few vampires around… second month? people will start selling vampirism… 3d month…. price for vampirism will drop… 4th month… every guild will have at least one so just join a guild to get your vamire trasformation… 5th month… just ask in chat and you will get your bite…

    Silly goose…..we use megaservers and we are on Tamriel Foundry…..one of the biggest ESO forums….1 forum post/inbox away from scheduling your transformation date. (reddit might be easier) It’ll be slow at first – but your overestimating the difficulty a bit. and default bonus – the spawns only spawn at night – so at least you can have some breaks inbetween hunts.

     

    @Malkyr There is no weakness to sunlight (just +50% damage from fire sources).

    The first couple months of release are going to be pure profit for the Priests of Arkay*. The amount of people who become vamps because “zomg I’m a vamp” and then realise how bad it is for most builds is going to be hilarious.

    *I think it was arkay that had the cure… lol

    Despite the sheer number of people who are clambering to become vampires either because ‘it’s cool’ or out of pure game mechanics, I do really hope the percentage of vampires (and werewolves) is relatively low… either that, or Bethesda retcons the lore to make this some kind of age of vampires as a result of the darkness and chaos of Molag Bal’s incursion. Otherwise, it’ll just feel wrong (avoiding the now scorned ‘I’ word here). After all, if you’re an heroic (or, perhaps, even villainous) member of your faction and are involved in a siege of a fort and your commander and lead warriors suddenly reveal themselves to be vampires, most should question if they’re on the right side. Sure, not all vampires are evil monsters and there’s enough reason why a few might actually be accepted as strange bedfellows in this time of crisis, but there is something inherently repugnant, frightening, and off-putting about vampires that any living being who isn’t blindly looking at meta-game stats should feel.

    I’m not saying vampires and werewolves should become PKable to even their own faction when they reveal themselves, but hopefully ZOS will find a way to keep them contained.

    Ok alot of you need to know but you can’t just bite some random person and infect them, in order to pass your vampirism over with that ability you have to be in a group and have to do it as part of a quest chain. So no fear of random people biting you.

    It is a choice. Just because it takes gold, work and/or luck doesn’t change that.

    I thought this was going to be some sort of RP thing, like being gay isn’t a choice. Disappointing thread disappoints.

    For roleplaying reasons I will go and find a vampire to get infected eventually. It IS a choice. MY choice. Yes it is difficult to obtain but I’m in no hurry!

    Yeah?  Tell me which mob, so i can avoid it.  I don’t understand why so many NB want to enhance their vulnerabilities other than For Teh Evulz.

    Teh Evulz?!?! No! Vampires are sooooo romantic! I want to be Team Edward!  Look at me!  I sparkle!  And now I’m… OH MY GOD I’M ON FIRE!!!!  FIRE IS OP!!!  THAT’S NOT FAIR!!!

    1. There is no ’Best Class’ that lets you /faceroll your way into the endgame.

    2. There is no ’Best Race’ for any particular class.

    3. There is no ’Best Race/Class Combo’ for a particular role. (Tank, Healer, DPS)

    If there is, it’ll be nerfed by the first patch.  So don’t worry about it.
