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).

      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. :/

                                  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).

                                          A true Vampire doesn't concentrate on the things they don't have or there weaknesses, they devote there time to strengthen there ability's and use them to the fullest of there possibility's. And the most important thing...They are going there own way and don't exept others limitations as there's. Your probably wondering who i am to give such a statement.....because i am one of the very few dedicated vampire players on Eso. I know everything about Vampirism and how to go beyond the possible.
