Skyrim: Dawnguard Perk Trees and Achievements Revealed

While surfing the internet today I came across quite an interesting and exciting discovery; the Perk trees and Achievements for Dawnguard. The achievements for Dawnguard are what you would expect, complete the main quests, kill something new, and complete a shout. No new revelations aside from a special bow were revealed but the Perk Trees for the two beast transformations are quite another story.

Both offer amazing new abilities that are sure to spice up being a werewolf and vampire. Even making playing as a vampire seem like an attractive option (for me anyway).

      How are you going to master 11 werewolf perks when there are only 8?

    • Whoreisland0

      I assume that’s counting the multiple levels of “Bestial Strength”.

      Games “journalism” these days…

       From what I’ve heard they’ve been floating around there for a few days and I just credited who I got them from. I did in fact check the wiki to see if it had any information to fill in the holes in the perk trees.

       Same goes to you now, doesn’t it?
