Your body itches. Your throat is dry and raspy. Pain courses through your body and you collapse to the ground, vision going blurry. As you writhe on the ground, a single thought fills your mind. You are hungry. You are hungry for MEAT! As this thought echoes through your soul, the pain subsides, replaced by a sudden elation. Your body is strong. Powerful. Immense amounts of muscle ripples beneath your thick, furred hide as you leap onto a rooftop, elated with your new sense of being.
Light floods the sky, and you gaze upward at the smooth silver disc overhead, enthralled by its beauty. Your claws dig into the tiles of the rooftop, and your body instinctively arches itself in preparation for what is coming. Your lungs fill with air, then it all rushes out, floods out of you in a long, haunting howl.
As the sound ends, it is picked up by others, and you can see dark shapes leaping across the rooftops, piercing eyes moving toward you in the darkness. but you are not afraid. Your are one of them now. You are a member of the pack!
About Werewolves in Vox Populi
The only way to become a werewolf is to voluntarily cultivate and infect yourself with the disease. To do this, you have to use the /races menu while online. The recipe consists of a rabbit stew, 10 raw beef, 10 glowstone dust, and 10 raw mutton. Combining these will create an Infected Steak.
Consuming this steak – by default left-clicking, instead of right-clicking – will infect you with Lycanthropy. Relogging will make the disease take effect, and give you access to the full strength of a werewolf.
To cure the disease you’ll need a Wolfsbane potion which is crafted in the same way as the Infected Steak – enter the /ecraft menu, and select the Races category. The Wolfsbane potion requires 1 bucket of milk, 1 diamond, 32 sugar, and 32 wheat. Like the Infected Steak, be sure to left-click the Wolfsbane, instead of drinking it with right-click.
Werewolves are a powerful race, and get some of the most potent racial bonuses. At all times, regardless of being transformed or not, werewolves are capable of summoning an additional alpha wolf from their wolf kennel (/help wolves in game). Werewolves are also incapable of eating anything other than meat and the occasional cake. If they attempt to eat any other foods, they’ll become sick and afflicted with the nausea and hunger status effects.
Some of a werewolf’s biggest bonuses are only active while one is transformed. While transformed, werewolves gain:
- Increased Speed
- Increased Jump Height
- Empowered Melee Attacks
- Damage Resistance (not resistance potion effect)
While transformed, werewolves also experience some additional limitations. They:
- Cannot Cast Spells
- Consumes Hunger Faster
- Consume Lunacy at a steady rate to remain transformed
Silver weapons are the perfect weapon to use when fighting werewolves, as they are their weakness. In addition to dealing bonus damage, these weapons will inflict a number of negative effects on Werewolves, such as slowness, nausea, and blindness. The Witch Hunters Guild in Valeria Beach will craft these items for you in exchange for Silver Ingots, special bars of precious metal obtainable from bosses in dungeons and the Dark Cavern.
When killing a transformed Werewolf, there is chance they will drop a Werewolf Hide. Werewolf hides can be given to the craftsmen at the Witch Hunters Guild, who will craft you powerful Werewolf Hide Armor in return.
/help werewolf – Opens the in-game werewolf help file.
