Shape Shifting

    Hey guys, first thread and stuff soooooo.. Well when looking at some builds I thought of some game I used to play where everyone could shape shift and stuff and was wondering if maybe that would have been a good addition to the game, I know you can transform into a werewolf and vampire lord but what if you could be a regular wolf or bear. What do you think about it and would you mind it being in Elders Scroll 6?

    I certainly won't mind it  There is a spell in Skyrim files but not implemented in the game - Polymorph Skeever (turn yourself into a skeever). I'd love to have it implemented. I would have also liked other forms like hawks and slaughterfish but only if there are predators in their corresponding environments, so you could not safely fly from Riften to Solitude

    Unless I can crawl on walls and ceilings as a spider, I'll probably pass.

    In the creation kit? Sick! I was looking for that kind of effect.

    I absolutely think it's a good idea. Not only would I like to be able to transform into bears and wolves, but other creatures like hawks, rats, cats, bats, and so forth. Generally I would like to see more utility type spells and powers.

    A druid like thing, with various animals to turn into, would be great.

    Is love to turn into a wolf or horse, as I love both animals. Wolves, the fierce, yet noble, predators of forests, silently stalking in the night. Horses, well, because then I could post a picture saying, "I've done it....I AM A PONY MOTHERBUCKERS!"

    I like the idea. Perhaps it would be a school of magic, with increasingly powerful polymorph spells and spells that could revert the forms of other polymorphed beings, if enemies could also use the spells.

    Shape shifting would be truly epic. I'd love to swim from one end of Skyrim to another as a fish or sneak through a dungeon as a skeever or float through a giant's camp as a butterfly or frighten the residents of Riverwood as a cave troll. If it was in the game, I don't think I'd ever play a character that didn't use it. And I can say that honestly, because I play shape shifters wherever I can.
