Vampire


Skilltree: World
Description:
The Vampire skill-line is part of the "World" category in the Elder Scrolls Online. The Vampire skill-line has active skills and passives, as well as four different Vampire stages. The Ultimate transforms you into a Vampire Lord for a short duration.

How do you unlock the Vampire skill-line?


There are three different ways how you can get Vampirism in the Elder Scrolls Online. You can simply purchase Vampirism via Crown Store, this will instantly turn you into a Vampire. You can get infected by another player or via a Bloodfiend NPC, once infected you have the debuff “Noxiphilic Sanguivoria/Vampirism” on you. With this debuff you can go to one of the three Vampire Shrines to complete the quest and turn into a Vampire.

For a detailed explanation please visit the Vampire Guide.

How do you level up the Vampire skill-line?


To level up the Vampire skill-line in the Elder Scrolls Online you have to simply kill enemies or complete quests to earn experience. Slotting several Vampire skills on your bar will increase the experienced gained towards the Vampire skill-line in ESO. In theory you can become a Vampire and forget about it, at some point you will reach the maximum level, please be aware that there are drawbacks to being a Vampire.

The numbers are based on a naked level 50 character without any skills, passives, attributes and champion points allocated.
