So I just learned that being a Vampire or a Werewolf in ESO is in EXTREMELY high demand right now. Since there is no particular quest that can turn you like in Skyrim, the only way to become one is to get bitten by an NPC (My original goal), or to get a player to infect you. Players can only infect ONE person ONCE A WEEK.
I wasn't hoping to become a werewolf just yet, I'm too low a level (haven't been playing much since I got the game cause work x_x ). I was going to search out NPC's once I gained more skills and levels, but just recently IGN announced that Infected players and general assholes are going around SLAYING all of the few NPC's that are currently out there, so that they can profit from biting people.
Yes, being infected is in such high demand that players are offering up shit tons of money to be bitten, so these jerks are taking advantage of the situation.
LOL and not all of them are trustworthy. Where there's profit, there's also scammers. Players claiming they're infected offer their services, pocket the cash and run, and it works the other way around too.
It's disgusting. I think the only possible way for me to get the infection is to camp where the werewolf NPC's spawn and hopefully manage to get one to attack me before someone kills it. I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one with this idea. I've learned that there are some quests involving werewolf/vampire slaying but people can still ruin the chances for you (like kill the werewolf you were attacking first before it can bite you)
Another way is if I can find someone trustworthy, or who I know, that can bite me. Highly unlikely though... .__.
God this has annoyed me so much. :l Hopefully the craze will die.. I was planning to be a werewolf as soon as I got the game. ;^;
