Should you choose to embrace the dark gift in the Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Dawnguard, these will be your specialized skills. [Excerpt}

During my hands-on session of Dawnguard, I paused the game for a minute to check out the skill tree of the level 29 vampire lord Bethesda created for the demo. Here is the list of perks he had for his vampiric form:

  • Power of the Grave: 50 bonus points to health, magicka, and stamina
  • Vampire Grip: A Force Pull style ability that allows you to pull distant targets toward you and choke them
  • Summon Gargoyle: Conjure up some help in battle with one of these menacing monsters
  • Corpse Curse: Paralyze your foes with this magical blast
  • Detect All Creatures: A vampire who wants to live long should stay aware of his surroundings
  • Mist Form: Turn yourself into an invulnerable cloud of mist while regenerating your health, magicka, and stamina
  • Supernatural Reflexes: A slow motion style ability that allows you to move quickly in for a kill while the enemies move sluggishly
  • Blood Healing: Killing someone by biting them restores all of your health
  • Unearthly Kill: Night powers and Blood Magic cost 33% less
  • Poison Talons: Melee attacks deal 20 points of poison damage
  • Night Cloak: A shroud of bats feed on enemies within melee range
