Werewolf or Vampire Lord?

#1TheRavenKCPosted 4/11/2013 6:32:17 AM
Right now I'm playing as a werewolf trying to get all the perks and then I'm going to turn into a vampire to get those perks.

Which one do you think is better?

And can I ever change back to a werewolf after I become a vampire?

I prefer Werewolf personally, but many prefer VL.

You can change back to Werewolf, once, by talking to Aela.

I prefer wolf for a few reasons

1. Looks much better.
2. Not as OP
3. Doesn't make the game feel totally distant from it's core. Playing as a VL just makes it much less like Elder Scrolls and more like a generic action game or something.

Werewolf, it's broken w/ the Ring of Bloodlust from Dragonborn.

l went on a rampage w/ my level 102 pure mage/werewolf on Legendary difficulty last night and slaughtered 2 giant camps without getting hit once.

I prefer Vampire lord

It has much more variety than the werewolf, it not just slash slash slash, it's blow up, raise corpse, slash, summon gargoyle, slash, blow more stuff up, bite neck, Slash...

Do you meet a reasonable person on gamefaqs very often? Oh what am I saying, of course you don't.

Werewolf is good for warriors, whereas VL is good for mages and stealth. Really depends on your play style. The vampire fire weakness also requires extra preparation to make sure Yol-dragons don't mess you up.

In the end though, it's best to go werewolf if you don't want to have game changing downsides, so it's for more casual players

For those that want to restrict themselves and have more "fun" then it's cool to go Vampire, just explore dungeons during the day and go outside at night and such.

I've done both on my two main files and I have to say it depends on the character but a true more always goes werewolf. Vampire Lord is fun, but as someone else said feels out of place in Skyrim and is pretty overpower, but then again so is werewolf if you know what you are doing.

And honestly there is no reason to use any other spell other than the grip. Someone needs to make a modded save where that spell is available to buy like any other.
