Vampire Skills in Elder Scrolls Online can be obtained by being bitten by a player with Blood Ritual or by being bitten by high-level Vampires in the later PvE zones (also, see our Vampirism and check how to be cured.). This Skill Line levels up by gaining xp. The skills do not need to be on your bar. Any points spent into the line cannot be re-distributed at a shrine if the player has cured vampirism. Re-spec your points BEFORE curing yourself. Vampire skills will be revamped in Greymoor Expansion (released on May 26th on PC and June 9th 2020 on Consoles).

      I was a level 7 vampire prior to the release of greymore. I used earned skill points to advance the abilities. After the greymore release ALL of my abilities have been “greyed”. They show that once I rewatch a higher level I can access them, but will need to REPURCHASE them. My skill points that I invested were never returned. Customer service just won’t deal with it. Completely unfair. Had I known that I would loose earned skill points that I invested because of the release of greymore I would have never become a vampire in game.

        Besides transforming into a Scion, is it just me, or do the rewarked vampire skill-line suck?
        Feels it caters too much to it's own skill tree now (focusing on dps), rather than working off of your overall class/characters synergy. :/

          I'm new to this game so I'm not too sure but does this scion form gives you wings at all? I'm remembered seeing people with wings on their scion and I don't have any.

                      Is the new mist form that does damage considered a damage over time effect? What champion points would increase its damage?

                              Please don't do the zenimax , this takes away vampire from anyone who isn't a damage build, we enjoy Regen passives at the cost of flame damage , taking vampire out of the game is going to make allot of players quit .

                                    It looks like the values listed for new skills might be for Stage 4, given how working back from 60% to 100% gives you nice round costs (285 for ulti, 2295 for Eviscerate, and 960 for Frenzy).
