They both have their merits, especially for RP purposes. I love playing a were on my warriors. If I'm hacking and slashing I can add teeth and claws. Vamps are good too and I love the powers (although the Lord form is just plain weird IMO) and the constant need to feed bothers me. Usually I don't feed at all. I want my powers to be maximum. I always wondered why Beth did it that way. You're weaker if you've fed? That seems counterintuitive. Oh well. I think I'm off to create a vamp AND a were. It's been about 90 days since I've last played. Wait, I have to finish Dragon Age first... wait I've got II coming in the mail next week... Sheesh... am I ever going to get back to Skyrim? I miss you Skyrim!
