Hello everyone and welcome to my Vampire Guide for the Elder Scrolls Online My name is Tianlein and today i will show you three different ways to become a Vampire, a walkthrough of the Vampire Quest “Scion of the Blood Matron”, how and where you can cure Vampirism, an overview about the Vampire Skills and Passives and what are the Pros and Cons of Vampirisim If you want to go direct to a specific topic take a look in the description One way to become a Vampire is that you try to get infected by special NPC Bloodfiends.
It is not needed to kill this Bloodfiends, once you are infected you can run away and allow other players to get the disease from the same enemy You can find this Bloodfiends at some nights in the Rift, Reaper`s March and Bangkorai. To be honest i found it pretty hard to find these Bloodfiends but i can show you two spots in the Rift where i can confirm that they spawn The first location is South of the Skald’s Retreat Wayshrine and not far away from the Frostmoon Farmstead The second location is West of Nimalten not far away form the Nimalten Wayshrine If you play on PC you can use the Addon Destinations and activate the Vampire/Werwolf Locations to get an idea where the Bloodfiends can be I didnt manage to find any Bloodfiends at the suggested locations but maybe yo have more luck than i had.
If you know any Bloodfiend Location and maybe the times when they spawn please share them in the comments below An easier way to become a Vampire is to get bitten by another Player who has the Blood Ritual skill unlocked and has not given the gift to anyone else in the last week Players already infected with Lycanthropy cannot be infected with Vampirism You have to meet the Vampire Player at a Vampire Ritual Shrine which are located in The Rift, Reaper`s March and Bangkorai In the Rift the Vampire Altar is east of Shor`s Stone The Vampire Altar in Bangkorai is between Evermore and Pelin Graveyard In Reaper`s March the Vampire Altar is next to Ushmal’s Rest After you got infected by Vampirism you have to complete the Quest Scion of the Blood Matron At the Vampire Ritual Shrine a Scroll will appear which will direct you into the crypt under the altar Inside you will meet Rahaja who wants you to experience the Vampire story yourself.
First you must drink from the basin of suffering and see a vision After that you have to profane the symbol of Molag Bal On the other side of the room you have to drink from the basin of loss and experience another vision Then you have to profane the symbol of the Forsaker With both symbols destroyed enter in the middle of the room the pool of black water Vampires will start to drain your blood and a woman will command you to kill 10 cultists in the tunnels After you killed all cultist return to the pool and speak again to Lamae Bal You will complete the Scion of the Blood Matron quest and receive the Vampire Skill line Of course you can buy Vampirism in the crownstore too For 1500 crowns you will get direct the Vampire Skill line and the Scion of the Blood Matron Quest will be skipped If you have the wish you can cure yourself from Vampirism You just have to visit a Priest of Arkay In the Mages guild Hall hall in Riften in the Rift, or Evermore in Bangkorai or Rawl’kha in in Reaper`s March you have to speak to Prelate Sabinus who will cure you for a small gold dontation.
Next i will show you an overview of the Vampire Abilities To advance in the Vampire Skill line you have to gain Experience The Vampire Ultimate is Bat Swarm and you need level 5 in your Vampire Skill Line to access this ability Bat swarms deals magic damage to nearby enemies every 1 second for 5 seconds Clouding Swarm deals magic damage to nearby enemies and you can use this ability again to instantly teleport to an enemey and deal extra magic damage Devouring Swarm deals magic damage to nearby enemies every second for 5seconds and the bats heal you for each damaged enemy.
Then you gain two new abilties from the Vampire Skill Line: Drain Essence stunnes the enemy,deals magic damage and restores 20% of your missing health every 1 second for 3 seconds Invigorating Drain deals magic damage, restores 20% of your missing health and generates Ultimate and Accelarating Drain deals magic damage, restores 20 % of your missing health and gives you minor expedition which increases your movement speed by 10% Mist Form reduces your damage taken by 75% for a short amount of time Entering this form grants you immunity to all disabling and immobilization effects, but you cannot be healed and your Magicka Recovery is disabled Elusive Mist has the same effects than the mist form skill but gives you also Major Expedition which increases your movement speed by 30 % for 4 seconds Baleful mist has also the same effects as the mist form skill but deals additionaly magic damage to nearby enemies Then we have 6 passives skills Savage Feeding sets your taget after feeding of balance and stuns it at rank 1 for 2 seconds and then at rank 2 for 4 seconds.

For the Dark Stalker ability you have to be in your Vampirism Stage 4 this Skill ignores the movement speed Penalty while sneaking and decreases the time to crouch by 50% during night It is important to notice that you can progress through four stages of vampirsim The time between stages of vampirism is 6 hours, and casting any Vampire ability will advance this timer by 30 minutes This Vampirisim stages effect your Health Recovery, your weakness to fire and how much your vampire abilites cost Also you will see changes in your skin color, especially your face, in the different vampirism stages Stage 1 has no extra effects and you you will recognize a slightly change on your skin color and that you have a bit red eyes.
In Stage 2 your Health Recovery will be 25% slower, you get +15% damage from fire and your Vampire Abilites cost will be reduced by 7% Your Skin will get a bit more pale and you will get more red eyes In Stage 3 your Health Recovery will be 50% slower, you will get +20% damage from fire and your Vampire Abilites cost will be reduced by 14% The Skin color will change further and you will also recognize more changes at your face and eyes In Stage 4 your Health recovery will be 75% slower, you will get +25% damage from fire and your Vampire Abilites cost are reduced by 21% Now you have a total pale skin and you will see strong changes at your face with a lot of visible veins With the passive Skill Unnatural Resistance the health recovery penalities through stages 2,3 and 4 are reduced to 0%, 25% and 50% If you want to lower your Vampirism stage you have to feed on a humanoid creature Sneak behind a target until you get the prompt to feed On PC you have to Press the X key On XBox the Y + B Buttons Then your character will start to pull blood from your victim.
Feeding as a vampire reduces your vampire stage by 1 Last but not least we talk about the advantages and disadvanteges of beeing a Vampire We start wit the postive aspects of beeing a Vampire For example you get with the Sunernatural Recovery Passive 10% Magicka and Stamina Recovery Then the Undeath passive reduces your damage taken by 33% based on your missing health while you are below 50% health while you are in Vampirism Stage 4 you ignore the Movement Speed penalty while Crouching This gives you great mobility especially in PvP But there are also some negative aspects of beeing a Vampire One negative aspect is that you receive 25% more damage from fire If you are afraid of the extra fire damage, you can always feed and lower your Vampirism Stage Also you could use some some flame resistance enchants on your jewelry If you are a Dunmer your Racial Skills will help you since that increases your Flame resistance Then you should be aware that you have maybe get used to your slower health regeneration Additionaly if you don`t want to stay in the Stage 4 you have to remember to feed and maintain your desired Vampirism Stage In PVP you will be more weak to Fighter Guild abilities With the Skilled Tracker passive the Fighters Guild abilities deal additional 20% to you As mentioned before the biggest visual change is visible on your skin and face I guess it depends on your taste if that is a good or bad change for your character Hopefully i could answer all your questions about Vampires in the Elder Scrolls Online It would be wonderful if you subscribe, like or leave me a comment Have a nice day and until next time.
