  • Finally going through the companion quests, and I've just gotten Wuthgard (The axe) back together.  I'm trying to figure out if WW form is worth keeping, or if I'm better off getting Lover's comfort back to help me level.

    Any thoughts?

    • You mean Beast form right? (And the axe is called Wuthraad)

      It depends on what kind of character you have. Beast form is better for warrior-like characters, while Vampire lord is better for mages. Being a Werewolf also has almost no negative effects (since almost no one ever sleeps).

      Now the part where you mention the lover´s comfort is kinda weird for me to understand. As far as i know this does not affect beast form in any negative or positive way.

    • The only drawback to being a werewolf is no benefit from sleeping, otherwise it is an enhanced state of melee. It can be of great benefit to mages and archers, as sometimes they encounter situations where the best path is to get in close and hit things - the werewolf does that extremely well. I don't think melee warrior characters get the most benefit because they're already quite good at hitting things and lose the benefit of their armor while a werewolf; though I will say the werewolf form does have a nice knock-down attack, enhanced health/stamina, and they run really fast when sprinting.

    • I play sword and board.  I've never even used beast form yet, as my human form doesn't really ever get into trouble unless I forget to change from speech clothes back to armor.

      When you have wolf blood, you don't get any sleep perks (including lover's comfort), which I've used aggressively to help me level skills, espescially in-town skills like smithing, enchanting, speech, and alchemy.

      Unless you upgrade the Werewolf-Perktree regularly, the Werewolf get's outclassed really, really fast.

      Why would you not upgrade your werewolf form if you're going to keep it?

      At high level with enough perks, the crowd control (fear howl) + the insanely powerful attacks (especially the running one which knocks almost everything down) can make short work of nearly any group of foes.

      Why wouldn't you invest in the werewolf perk tree?

      what if you don't have dawnguard? then you don't even have a perk tree to invest in.

      I am trying to talk my wife into letting me get Dawnguard.  She's a stay-at home mom, so she usually steals my spare cash for the cash shop on Farmvilletownranch

      I see this as a good thing, since in these kind of games it's so easy to level up extremely fast without really trying, at which point you're pretty much overpowered (unless you decided on self-restrictions like not using enchanting/alchemy exploits and not powerleveling smithing by making only daggers all the time...)

      Oh, don't be silly.  Power-leveling smithing is much better if you make jewlery and put your random gems in it.  Restraint would come from..  Only using gems and ore you've found?  Try not buying ore or ingot from any vendors.  Now THAT is going to take a while.


      My point is that without the use of power leveling, a lot of skills are hard to build.  Not being able to get the rested/LC perk is worse for players like me that DON'T make a bunch of jewlery just to sell it just to get my smithing to 100.  My smithing is at about 30, and I'm level 46.  When I smith, sell, dabble and enchant, I use LC to boost what I get out of it; when I actually remember.

      I did, however, purchase the legendary edition just to get the DLC the easy way (Was not looking forward to running ethernet to the other side of my house, and through a drywalled section of ceiling in my basement).  So once I get around to downloading Dawnguard, I'll have the WW perk tree.

      Not necessarily true.

      Get the "transmute" alteration spell, and hit up any iron mine. Then, put on clothes or armor that boost your magicka and mag. regen, and proceed to transmute the hell out of that ore. Then, smelt gold rings. they weigh the same as necklaces, but they have a higher overall value (150 compared to 120).

    • Hey guys just wondering if anybody knows wether I can become a werewolf again after completing the quest Purity. I know you can ask Alea the Huntress to make you a werewolf after you are cured of it by Harkon or Serana, but If I use the Purity quest to cure it can I become a werewolf again.

      Nope.  Aela will give you beast blood one extra time, and only if you lost the blood by going to try Vampire.  If WW was cured through Putiry, you can never be a WW again.  If you switch to Vamp, then back to WW, then back to Vamp, you can never be WW again.

      If you want to be normal and have the option of going back to WW, I would:  Go from WW to Vampire, then be cured of Vamp.  You will be human and should still be able to become WW again.

    • See, on my current character, I'm currently partway through the Companions questline. And I'm basically just thinking "Oh. You want to be cured of the beast blood, Kodlak? Actually I think I can arrange that. I have a friend who's a pureblood vampire. If she bites you, it'll override your beast blood. Then it's just a matter of curing your vampirism, which should be simple enough. I hear there's a wizard in Morthal who can take care of that."
