Vampire and werewolf "bites" in the crown store

Really ZOS? Really? They are easy enough to get in the game. Why would anyone want to pay actual money to get them from the crown store? That's beyond ridiculous.

    It makes me wince. But I was here at PC launch when they kept screwing up the spawn times for bloodfiends and camped the area for over 2 weeks to get my bite. SIGH But...oh well. I'm sure there are people out there who will give ZOS money for this. I know I'd pay ZOS to give me a skin that allowed me to revert my vampires to their mortal appearance and I'd gladly pay then to change the Stage Timers for vamps so that Stage 1 lasts 90 minutes and Stage 3 lasts 30 minutes instead of the way it is now which is the exact opposite.

    ok my question is -

    If you buy the bite in the store do you skip the quest?

    Or do you still have to do the quest and kill 10 lvl 38 mobs to be a vampire or the troll for WW?
    It would add value to purchasing the bite if you could skip the quests.
    Otherwise I feel bad for a new player buying the bite and not doing their research first lol

    I believe you still need to do the quest. I think it just grants the affliction. Not sure because I'm not gonna waste 1500 crowns to test it

    "When purchased, you will immediately turn into a Vampire or Werewolf; there is no item to interact with, and nothing will be placed in your inventory." Sounds like no quest to me, but, they never actually pointed out there is no quest.. did say it was instant though.

    Not a big fan of this.
    Me either when put like that. If so it sounds like what they give you with a high level template character on the PTS. You just click the scroll and *poof*, you get your fangs.

    This would pair well with an orb of "skipping the five companions quest line" and a "brazier of instant level 50" :wink:

    I was just about to come back to this thread and mention that! I was foolish enough to think these were datamined just because they were used on the PTS.

    We should ask someone who bought it. The actual Crown item just says you get the curse. Don't see anything about skipping the quest.

    Yeah, saying it gives you the curse contradicts their later statement of "immediately turn into a campire or werewolf"/ Hmmm. Must investigate.

    Note that these bites are also available on RMT & auction websites. This could also be an effort to give the people buying those a legal way to purchase them.

    Just to confirm, you do not need to do the quest. Once you purchase either bite, you automatically are infected with either Lycanthropy or Vampirism. To reiterate what we've always said, Crown Store items are merely for convenience.
    Thanks for confirming. The wording was a little ambiguous.

    Of course, now there will be even more players asking for Vamp/WW buffs and fixes :)

    Happy hunting to all of the new creatures of darkness and blood.

    I understand why some folks don't know about/can't find free bites. Don't know why ZOS couldn't just increase the number or frequency of spawn if there was an issue with people not being able to get bites (other than to pursue monetization). Or, why the quests are skipped even if bites are sold for convenience and profit. The vamp and werewolf quests are very short and have lore.

    Getting the affliction cured is more of a convenience since it would be the same as a respec scroll. Getting an instant transformation without going through the effort is ridiculous.

    Well if you can skip the quest and instantly turn into a vampire or werewolf then I know what I will be buying with my monthly crown sub allowance then.
    Having to do the quest is the only thing that has held me back and I have nothing else to spend crowns on they just pile up unused, so may as well. going to go make my lvl 3 werewolf now!

    If you can skip the quest, this has become the first step into the P2W realm, I've never played a WW, so I don't know about them. But the vampire skill line has some definate advantages to it.

    Yes, I imagine you also instantly gain the achievement related to becoming a vamp or WW too.
    I have only turned characters who could find spawn. Been playing since late beta/early access. Werewolf was easy to find but those vamp spawn were hard. Only found one about 5-6 weeks ago. I am sure there will be lots of P2W arguments, but however people frame it, it's just one more thing that needs to go into a new "wallet achievement" section in the character Journal.

    It would take a whole 5-15 minutes for the quest for either vamp or ww. That is *not* convenient. :smirk:
