Skyrim werewolf with skill tree via DLC
With Skyrim being the size that it is you will from time to time come across enemies that prove much harder to takedown, this is where you will need to have something extra special in order to defeat them. There is a way to help you and that is by becoming a Werewolf because they are very powerful, although we have to point out not invincible.
To become a Werewolf you will need to catch a disease called Lycanthropy and depending where you come from in Skyrim will be seen as either a blessing or curse. If you have no issue with not gaining sleep bonus then you should embrace your inner demon and you have to forget all what you know about these creatures, as they are not the same from all those movies you and I have seen.
We recently discussed the idea of Dragon riding within Skyrim and the positives or negatives that could come with such a feature, well there’s also a rumor that the developers have been playing with the idea of a Werewolf skill tree and could happen in a future DLC.
Some of you may have been trying to become a werewolf to see what the benefits are and the only way to do this is by moving ahead in the Companions questline by doing so will increase your chances of contracting Lycanthropy, you will then need to use magic to transform into a Werewolf and it’s while you are one that you could begin to build upon a new skill tree.
There are currently 18 skills in total so there is room for more such as one specifically for a Werewolf, where you can level up while in this form for killing or eating different things. The problem with being one of these creatures is that you do not have any armor, so you could take an arrow and be killed outright. Why would you be given the chance to become a Werewolf if there was no way for it to become a major part of the game, hence why there are rumors of a skill tree in a future DLC?
It’s not just armor that’s an issue just think how cool it would be to improve on your hand-to-hand damage when in Werewolf form, or even control when you turn? Some Skyrim fans will argue that there are already enough skill tree choices, but you have to remember that when you are transformed into another creature the gameplay becomes very different so a new tree of perks is needed.
We have a video for you below showing a Werewolf skill tree thanks to the Skyrim Creation Kit, so it shows the idea is possible we just don’t know how plausible it would be to implement on the Xbox 360 and the PS3 by way of DLC?
What perks would you like to see when you are in Werewolf form?
