    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!

    Yeah I wondered the same thing, in all vampire movies...*sigh* even twilight...*hangs head in shame*...they get weaker if they don't feed.

    The only thing I can think of is they wanted you to be semi normal for when going into cities. My thing is if you change your form in the vampire beast (don't consider it lord) then yeah you should be attacked, however, if you are all powerful then you should be able to control yourself around people. Especially since the only differences i can tell with most races are the glowing eyes and the line that goes from the nose to the bottom of the chin.

    I want to do one quick vampire build where I just murder everyone I possibly can. Possibly try to leave all the merchants alive.

    For me, it's always vampire over the werewolf. Personal preference. And from RP stand point, I love my vampires. Powers/perks mean nothing to me.

    Werewolves don't have to turn into bats to fly away, they aren't scared of fighting

    Many if not all of those things are negatives
    But How many ways are Vampire's better then Werewolves:

    - Vampires don't smell like wet dogs 247
    - Vampires are more intelligent as they are not mindless beasts
    - The fact they can use magic makes them more powerful by default
    - Vampire's also have great strength
    - Vampire's are Immortal, A werewolf's existence is but the length of a sneeze by comparison
    - Vampire's have ranged attacks
    - Vampire's have more power's and can use melee and Magic, Werewolves are stuck in melee

    And that is just a regular vampire, Now a vampire lord on the other hand is not on the same level as a werewolf why they are several levels above, they are not rival creatures like so many assume a vampire and a werewolf perhaps but a vampire lord is more in league with a Lich (Hell a werewolf probably wouldn't even last a minute against one while a VL would be fully capable of defeating one) why a VL has all that plus..

    - Vampire Lord's can walk in daylight they are just annoyed by it
    - They have wings
    - They can Transform and revert form at will
    - They can dematerialize into Mist or Bats
    - The blood you get from Harkon to be a Vampire Lord is Pure, The Blood you get from Aela is Thinblooded and watered down

    And some people might say (But a vampire has to drink blood) Well a werewolf has to eat food and drink water as they are still living breathing humans

    and from what i have seen between Molag Bal in ESO compared to Hircine in Bloodmoon, I would definitely say Molag bal is much more powerful so would not their creations also be more powerful.

    I can continue....

    I couldn't say it better myself.

    You can't kill a lich unless you destroy the object their soul is bound to.
    That's what I've read. At the very least, you can kill off their physical body.

    Yet if you played oblivion, you would know anything could kill Mannimarco.

    I know that but many theroies state that Altmer aint he (my avatar is a pic of Mannimarco) but its more about who will win in the here and now(and a vampire lord being intelligent would most likely know what they are facing so they could very well then seek out the lich's phylactery) honestly it could go either way if they randomly encountered one another in battle, you could say one is harder to put down while the other is harder to keep down.... but that is what I first thought, (SPOILER AHEAD) then when playing ESO I realized vampires still live on in Coldharbour as vampires even after they are destroyed on Nirn much less them decending from dark anchors into Nirn so like a Lich they are fully capable of returning to the land of mortals but unlike a Lich it would not be as easy to do, Think of Coldharbour more like a prison then an afterlife when it comes to those who were already undead on Nirn, yes this means Harkon would still exist in another plane.

    Vampire Lords are definitely better, persay, but nonetheless I prefer going Werewolf simply because I have a lot more fun with it.

    That's what they say about being 2 powerful sure you are better off to one shot everything u see but it's just not as fun as it provides no challenge. probably why they didn't give you a full arsenal of god powers in oblivion after the Shivering Isles, sure turning every one into sweetrolls and cheese wheels may seem fun at first but after a while it will get stale and you will want a challenge which logically no one could do seeing as you have god powers.

    I know what you mean. I'm still running Blades Armor and Katana + Destruction Magic on Legendary on higher levels, simply for the challenge and fun. It's upgraded and enchanted, mind you, but not too much to the point where it's broken and I can oneshot everything.

    I'm contempt with using God tier characters as I get my enjoyment from the RP aspects of it, logically though how powerful do u think a Dragonborn who has absorbed over 100 dragons including Soul of the very first Dragonborn not to mention he was killed by a Vampire Lord and was resurrected as one himself would be? it's like a Stronger version of Lord Harkon and Miraak fuzed as one super Powerful being, I held an estimation over on the nexus a few short weeks ago that would put that combo at around Dagoth Ur's level. now as for a werewolf dragonborn, I just can't see that kind of power coming from them as werewolves are insufficent when it comes to magic.

    Well, I have my Dragonborn simply as a traveler training to become a strong spellsword (RP) at the moment, so you got me beat there lol.

    But I think we should keep it at that. Don't want to turn the topic of this thread to the power of our Dragonborns.
