Blood Fiends to Contract Vampirism for Elder Scrolls Online Weapons Collectors
If you cannot find a Vampire Guild to join that will turn you into one of their own, you’ll have to contract vampirism on your own by seeking out in-game NPC vampires called Blood Fiends. These Blood Fiend vampires spawn only at night, usually around midnight at several locations in Levels 37 – 44 zones of each faction. More specifically, they spawn in the Rift, Bangkorai, and Reaper’s March. You can get the condition, vampirism, if you get bitten by the rare Blood Fiends. Once you become infected, go to the nearest Wayshrine where you’ll be able to start the quest, Scion of the Blood Matron. Once you have completed this quest, you will unlock the Vampire skill line for your Elder Scrolls Online items collector.
Feeding as a Vampire for Elder Scrolls Online Weapons Collectors
When you get a prompt to feed, you need to crouch and slowly sneak up on the victim who is singled out from behind. As much as possible, feed on living beings who are alone, rather than someone who is already in a group. Activate [Use Feed] prompt to bite them, and for a few seconds blood will stream, and you will have your blood-meal. If you are having trouble getting somebody completely alone, to be really ultra-sneaky, you can use Nightblade ‘Shadow Cloak’ invisibility, as noted in the Vampire Build Section about Nightblade Class as a Vampire Build – or you can use Elder Scrolls Online items like a Potion of ‘Tincture of Invisible’.
Advantages of becoming a Vampire for Elder Scrolls Online Weapons Collectors
