First of all, this is not new information. I've read all of this on one of the wiki's already.

It's also fairly obvious that you copied parts of this from somewhere and ran it through google translate.

Do you like work for Bethesda or something? Or are you just a weird little man?

Armored troll! Awesome.

The vampire tree looks a LOT better than the werewolf tree, which bums me out because being a werewolf now is useless at higher levels. Hopefully those totems are worthwhile.

All the links in the original post are to a sketchy-looking blog. I'm pretty certain that Bethesda has nothing to do with this. The poor English combined with excessive keyword stuffing suggests that the blog is just trying to use cheap tricks to get itself on the front page of results for popular search terms (such as "Skyrim DLC news" and the like), thereby getting a large number of hits in a short period of time, all to make a quick buck from the ads on the site.

But you wouldn't be speaking from any position of experience.... would you?

Those Vampire/Werwolf skill trees would make a nice addition to the game.

Noticed that as well. Maybe it's a term given to non-permanernto skill trees, obviously like the vampire and werewolf skill trees. Their perks are also a lot different than normal perks. 
 
I'm going to soo get that armored troll.

#18 Posted by Master_Funk (728 posts) -

They should have totally called it Elder Scrolls 'On the Web' instead of its boring name right now.

I'm going to start running all my posts into Russian through Babel Fish and then back into English.

Has it been confirmed whether or not the addition of vampirism and lycanthropy perk trees also makes those attributes into full on, levelable skills? Because if so, that would obviously increase the level cap, but I wonder if that would raise some balance issues. If they're willing to do that kind of thing though, this might indicate that future expansions may add skills that were missing from the base game, such as unarmed combat.
