How To Become A White Werewolf In ESO

Follow these easy steps to become a White Werewolf in ESO.

Werewolves are part of the rich lore in the Elder Scrolls universe, and a lot of new ESO players are interested in playing as one of the fabled beasts (especially Skyrim players who enjoyed the Companions quests). Werewolves are vicious beasts, and playing as one of these frenzied killing machines adds an interesting dynamic to the game.

As powerful and legendary as these beasts are, none are as interesting as the White Werewolf.

White Werewolf In ESO

To become a White Werewolf in ESO, you must first contract Sanies Lupinus — a disease contracted after being bitten by a Werewolf. Sanies Lupinus will unlock the Werewolf skills in The Elder Scrolls Online.

To contract the disease you can either:

  1. Be bitten by a Werewolf mob in your Alliance’s level 30-40 zone (Reapers March for the Aldmeri Dominion, Bangkorai for the Daggerfall Covenant, and The Rift for the Ebonheart Pact). Once bitten, you’ll need to go to a nearby Wayshrine to start the quest Hircine’s Gift.
  2. Be bitten by a fellow player who already has the disease. Tip: Infected players can bite another player once every 7 days. If you’re looking to contract the disease, ask fellow guildies or advertise in Zone chat that you’re looking for a bite. Costs vary, but expect to pay upwards of 5,000 gold.

Once you’re bitten, you’ll unlock the Werewolf skill set (located under World Skills). If you’re interested in turning into a White Werewolf in ESO, the ability you need to develop is Werewolf Transformation.

Once Werewolf Transformation reaches Rank IV, you’ll be able to morph the ability into Pack Leader or Werewolf Berserker. To become a White Werewolf in ESO, you need to choose Pack Leader.


So here it is step-by-step:

  1. Contract Sanies Lupinus and become a Werewolf.
  2. Work on advancing your Werewolf Transformation ability.
  3. Once Werewolf Transformation reaches Rank IV, morph the ability to Pack Leader.
  4. Congratulations! You can now transform into a White Werewolf in ESO.
