    Oversight probably or just not in that southern region maybe.

    There are a lot of TES games which are supposed to have certain creatures, but don't. Skyrim had this problem especially...Like...Where are the Dwemer ghosts in Skyrim? In Blackreach? It's like they forgot they were a thing in Morrowind.
    Welcome, Moon-and-Star, to this place where destiny is made.

    I play healers or DPS often for vet dungeons and trials (NA, CP810+). I play mostly elves or Argonians.
    I primarily play Damage-Based stuff in PvP, but occasionally I'll play something tanky or got the heals.
    I also love gaining more knowledge both metaphysical and mundane regarding TES lore.

    I also occasionally role-play, but I prefer playing the game.

    Possibly the same reason there's no Wereboars in High Rock, or Werevultures in Valenwood.

    Maybe they left with the Imga? :confused:

    Because in game crocodiles can't swim, the crocodile "pack" would have to take a boat behind their swimming pack leader... which is just embarrassing if you picture it.

    They could be saving wererormasu for zones deeper in the Marsh, if they plan on adding wererormasu at all that is.

    Werewolfs/bears/crocs/boars - daedric creatures of Hircine. And i noticed, that there are no so much daedric influence in Black Marsh. No shrines, no ancors in Murkmire. Saxhleel superiority makes them best defenders against any daedra invasion or influence. There are some werecrocs in Black Marsh, but they are not common. They are probably hiding, cause Hist will erase them as deadric threat, and werecrocs have no any uses for saxhleel millitary since with hist magic possible to create argonian behemoths.

    Wouldn't surprise me if they introduce a multitude of different Lycanthrope enemies across tamrieland make them optional skins for Werewolves

    Would be fun if Argonian were not werewolves but werecrocodiles. Just a different model based on daedroth.

    here's the thing with lycanthropy, what race you are doesn't matter.
    Because Werewolves in ES aren't half man/half beast, they are daedric creature forms that mortals can transform into.

    I know, but it's less weird that way.

    Because the devs didn't want to include them. Simple as that. It doesn't mean that they don't exist in the lore, we just don't see them because of developer constraints. There are no werevultures in Valenwood, no wereboars or werebears in High Rock, no werelions in Elsweyr (that could change with the upcoming chapter, but I doubt it) and no werecrocodiles in Black Marsh and southern Morrowind. This doesn't mean that they can't show up in a dungeon DLC set in those provinces, but since we recently had a lycanthropy focused dungeon DLC and only werewolves were present, I don't have high hopes to seem them any time soon. The only werecreatures we have in game are werewolves all across Tamriel, and werebats in certain areas in Valenwood, and tbh I'm surprised they included werebats at all.
    So the Dark Elves have weird alien architecture, where people live in mushroom towers and the shell of a giant crab, but the High Elves, the pinnacle of technology, the most magically advanced race in Tamriel, are still stuck in slightly pretty, fairly tall stone buildings? Not even a hint of a glass city? Are stainless glass windows really enough to claim that a city is made of glass?
