    Hello guys, I'm finally back to you with a new build to join the Event Evolution.

    We'll travel through the events that brought a poor and ambitious teen rogue, on the way to become a hated power-hungry vampire lord.

    This build is made mainly for all unarmed combat/classic thief lovers and unleashes its true potential using a glitch I discovered, that we'll call "Supreme Vampire Lord "(aka SVL glitch), but also has a splash of magic and is divided in three main stages that represent the most important chapters of his life.

    So without further ado, I present you


    The Night Tyrant 



    The "Supreme Vampire Lord Glitch" is designed to obtain an effective damage in unarmed combat, I suggest you to play at least on Master difficulty, because it is very powerful. Once achieved the requirements to get this glitch, in addition to the usual daily powers, we can enjoy the following boosts in human form:

    over 120 unarmed damage, waterwalking, Mist Form, Detect Creatures, AR 375 and the VL bonuses instats (M.H.S.)

    Here there's a direct link to my discussion in Tips & Tricks Group


    The Glitch:


    Once the Vampire Lord Form is available, you can begin the companions' quest line.

    When you meet Skjor in the underforge, during "The Silver Hand" quest, you must:

    1. Select Vampire Lord (you'll need "Power of the grave", "Unearthly Will", "Detect Creatures" and "Mist Form" perks unlocked) in your powers menu, then SAVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    2. Press at the same time the “action command” (to drink the blood) and the “power command” (to become a vampire lord)

    3. Once you are outside in Vampire Lord Form, return in the Underforge

    4. Select revert form, wait an hour and repeatedly activate revert form just before the loading screen.

    If you done it well, after the loading screen, you should be in human form outside Gallows Rock , so check the active effect menu and powers menu (DON'T USE BEAST FORM, NEVER!).Now you should see some new effects. Try to enter in the lake near your position.You will be no more able to swim, but have more unarmed damage and can use your night powers.

    5. Go to castle Volkihar and ask Harkon to give you the gift again. 

    As it should be, power has a price and it's something I've always loved.

    This form is obtainable only once, turning into VL it will be lost forever.

    You can never get in the water, so if you need to do some quests in water (for example, those for Neloth, Maven, etc.), complete them before you do the glitch.

    You can not even use Bats and supernatural reflexes.

    And now my favorite: the guards, the jarls, the thanes and court wizards attack you on sight, as if you were in VL Form.


    Backstory - Stage 1

    Diolinis Brandoin was little more than a child when his hated father, an outcast and drunkard altmer, died for a desease leaving him alone in the world. The only place where he could go was the city of Riften, in the northern lands of Skyrim, in which lived a friend of his father, Brynjolf an important business man. Fate would have it, however, he was captured along with a group of Stormcloaks during an ambush of Imperial soldiers.

    Our story begins here ...


    The Build


    Race: Altmer or Nord

    Altmer is the perfect race for the Tyrant theme and the role, has a starting bonus in magicka, Highborn is the perfect power for a build that sometime need to cast some spell.

    Make him slender and blond, without scars and warpaint.

    Diolinis  Brandoin is a powerful vampire, tough, charismatic, arrogant, rich, smart and mainly merciless. His only wish is ... MORE POWER. Being a vampire he's immortal, has fast regeneration and night powers, can bend the mind of the mortals at his wish but it's not enough for him, he want dominate over any creature of Tamriel and become a god. So he started an arcane study to enhance his powers and go over his nature.
