Dawnguard Impression - The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Skyrim has found a way to twist family drama into a story featuring vampires and werewolves without lots of melodrama. For that alone, Bethesda should be commended.

    Sounds as impressive as the Bloodmoon expansion Morrowind got so many years ago. Meaning I'm going to have to pick this and Skyrim up (whenever I see it on sale on Steam).

    Will be picking this one up, I quit TERA recently, I met some jerk who totally ruined my enjoyment of it . I'm addicted to Diablo 3 for some reason those durned zombies are addictive, reached 2nd Act of Inferno on my monk.Oh the shinies! *eyes sparkle*
    I loathe vampires, so I'm sticking with being a dawnguard, get back you neck sucking fiends!

    In another review I read, it said going into Dawnguard as a werewolf gets you a unique perk tree.

    I thought a preview I read a couple months ago said the werewolf perk tree was added from the start as part of the expansion and was separate from the new Dawnguard content. Could be the previewer was off, though.
    The lesson here is that dreams inevitably lead to hideous implosions.

    I wasn't a werewolf ever in my Skyrim playthrough, but I think I read that you can get access to that skill tree the same as you do for the new vampire tree.

    That's a great question. Too bad MS got the exclusive on this one with no ETA on the others. :(

    This certainly sounds pretty interesting. I'm not a loyal Skyrim fan, but I don't hate the game either, so I kinda hope that Bethesda puts out a few more DLC packs like this and creates a nice compilation edition I can buy into.

    The Werewolf skill tree will be there as soon as the dlc is first loaded or when you first become a werewolf and is unrelated to the Dawnguard plot. If you cured yourself but wish to be a wolfie again, just speak with Aela again. You can only acess the wolf and vampire lord skill trees while transformed. You press B on the controller, not sure what key it will be for the pc.

    For $40, which is about as much money as I'm going to end up spending this sale on everything else.

    I'll buy this expansion when it isn't infinitely more expensive than Daggerfall.

    It was mine the second it hit $30. I literally bought it within a minute of that sale coming into effect.

    Awesome, I'm excited for you. It's a fantastic game, and 30 bucks is a great deal for a game that can last a few hundred hours.

    I picked up dead island for 10 bucks. Couldn't pass up a zombie rpg. I'm digging it so far. The combat is pretty fun.
    sup?
