How to Become a Werewolf in Skyrim

So you may or may not have heard that you can become a werewolf in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.  To do it, you’re going to need to contract the disease of Lycanthropy, and there’s only one place to do that, in a very specific quest line.  In Whiterun, one of the questlines is to join The Companions.  Following The Companion questline until you reach The Silver Hand Quest, will allow you to take part in a secret ritual where you’ll drink a Werewolf’s blood.

You’ll gain several benefits from becoming a werewolf in Skyrim.  You’re able to transform between the human and werewolf forms.  You’ll get increases to your health stats as a human.  But as a werewolf, you’ll be able to move quicker, gain the benefit of claws in battle, and scare your enemies away at times.

Here’s a short video below of werewolf gameplay in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
