More Vampire and Werewolf skill lines!

    Unlike the vampire skill-line, the werewolf one feels complete with a heal, stun, spammable, gap closer, buffs, etc. However, adding a functional ultimate on top of the transformation ultimate would be awesome.

    ZOS could add variety to lycanthropy by adding other beast types (Wereshark, Werebat, Werebear, Wereboar, Werecrocodile, Werelion, and Werevulture). This could be akin to different stamina weapons types where the skills function the same, but your form might determine the kind of stats you have while transformed.

    Honestly, I personally hate the revamped vampire skill line. In PvP I made full use of the entire OG vampire kit. I loved the gap closer morph of the ultimate, the drain was a fun stun, and mist was a full cost ability that could be trouble if used at the wrong time, but I digress.

    Another revamp giving vampire skills the DLC class skill-line treatment of three skill-lines focused on the 3 roles of DPS, healer, and tank would add more vamp flavor to PvE and PvP.

    • Parse Food for PvE:(DPS) Ghastly Eye Bowl (increases Max Magicka by 4592 and Magicka Recovery by 459 for 2 hours).
    • Gold/Purple Food for Sorc PvP and Meme Tanking:(PvP) Clockwork Citrus Filet (increases Max Health by 3326, Health Recovery by 406 [useful if stage 1 vampire], Max Magicka by 3080, and Magicka Recovery by 338 for 2 hours). Witchmother's Potent Brew (Increase Max Magicka by 2856, Max Health by 3094, and Magicka Recovery by 315 for 2 hours.
    • Trash Potions when feeling cheap: Regular CP150 Essence of Magicka pots that I obtain frequently from playing the game or Crown Tri-Restoration Potion obtained from dailies.
    • Crafted Potions: Essence of Spell Critical (Bugloss, Lady's Smock, and Water Hyacinth). Without magelight this is my primary means of obtaining Major Prophecy on my Sorc, which increases my Spell Critical Rating. This also heals and restores magicka. Essence of Immovability (Columbine, Corn Flower, and Wormwood). I use this in PvP, since this gives me stealth detection, knockback immunity, and restores magicka (better to use it when competent allies are nearby, since it might reveal that you are surrounded by multiple players in stealth and you will not have an emergency pot available after use). Essence of Invisibility with only 2 ingredients (Blue Entoloma, Namira's Rot, Nirnroot, or Spider Egg). I use this in PvE content that requires stealth and if I need more speed I'll use Rapid Maneuver before using the potion. Essence of Invisibility with 3 ingredients (Blessed Thistle, Blue Entoloma, and Namira's Rot). Very useful in PvP alongside the vampire Dark Stalker passive, since you'll be invisible, ignore movement speed penalty while in Crouch, and you'll have a 30% movement speed boost from Major Expedition (I always have this slotted when riding from point A to B in PvP land, since gankers are always lurking). My templar will mostly use Essence of Health (Tri-Stat Potion) Ingredients: (Mountain Flower, Columbine, and Bugloss).

    I'd like to see the Vampire and Werewolf skill lines get their own Grimoires with the Scrying feature. Especially Werewolf, because Vampire already has access to every other Grimoire due to not being locked into using a particular subset of skills the way Werewolf is.

    We can expect multiple Grimoires for the same skill line in the future, so maybe we'll eventually get enough to get the equivalent of a new skill line?

I'd gladly accept more Werewolf skills to try to fill those holes in my build. An in-form Ultimate would be incredible — and to keep the existing functionality where casting the Ultimate reverts your form, it could work like Incapacitating Strike, where you get the new Ultimate when cast at x or more Ultimate, but revert form when cast below x Ultimate.

    Other werebeast types may be introduced as a purely cosmetic thing via Skill Styles for the Werewolf Transformation skill. Personally I'd want to be able to change the fur color with Skill Styles, rather than by morph of the ability, but there's no reason why we couldn't get "polymorphs" like other werebeast kinds as well. I'd imagine we'd probably have to wait until we get Solstheim and werebears to see a werebear Skill Style for Werewolf Transformation.

    Great points. Maybe a synergy where an ally can heal themselves by howling when the werewolf howls. A snare could be added to the claws. Of course, 5 new skills that could be added to a secondary werewolf bar would be interesting. Would also add value to using Shapeshifter's Chain instead of Oakensoul on a werewolf.

    That's a great idea for the ultimate to maintain it's original functionality when cast under a specified amount of ultimate, but become something new when enough ultimate is built up.

    Now that you mention it, a howl synergy for those in Werewolf form makes perfect sense. Wolves often howl together in packs, so what if Hircine's Bounty and its morphs offered a synergy that causes transformed werewolves in your group to also howl? Maybe the effect is a negative effect purge, like the Purify synergy from Cleansing Ritual and its morphs.

    I like that Werewolf has a self and ally synergy in the form of Feeding Frenzy, accessed via the Howl of Despair morph of Piercing Howl, but the "howl" in question isn't the kind of howling animation and sound effect you get when you use Hircine's Bounty. Honestly, I don't fully understand why one morph of Werewolf's spammable ability has a synergy tied to it. It grants Empower and Minor Force for 10 seconds, and since each synergy has a 20 second cooldown, at most it's a 50% uptime of those buffs for those who would use the self synergy in their builds.

    Hopefully Werewolf can be allowed to have one more synergy — this time, a synergy exclusively for transformed werewolves in the group, and tied to Hircine's Bounty and its morphs to both incentivize players to transform together and howl like werewolves would, and to also provide a needed utility not found within their kit.
