Skill Levels, Unlocked Abilities and Recipes
The Sims 4 Vampire Lore Skill Books
The Sims 4 Vampires Game Pack comes with a Vampire Lore skill. This new skill helps your Sim to learn to make potions and other items that are useful to vampires, and can teach regular Sims tips for dealing with vampires. This is the first Skill in The Sims 4 that goes beyond 10 levels, with a total of 15. However, they are gained a bit faster than other skills. It is meant to show your Sims' growing knowledge of the occult. As you gain levels, new tips about vampires as well as story bits will appear in your notification panel. If you came here from search, be aware our other information on vampires is available as well, at the bottom of this guide.
Learning Vampire Lore
Raising the Vampire Lore Skill is accomplished by first starting at the computer. Under the vampire secrets menu, you can find information on vampires. Once you graduate to level 2, you'll need to start learning from the Encyclopedia Vampirica series of books. So you don't waste time looking, these are not found under the normal buy books menu. Go to vampire secrets, THEN hit by books to get to the Encyclopedia Vampirica series. Start reading, and you can advance in the skill. In total, you'll need about $1500 worth of books to master it.
- Encyclopedia Vampirica Volume I - Gets you to Level 6
- Encyclopeida Vampirica Volume II - Works up to level 10
- Encyclopedia Vampirica Volume III - Works to level 13
- Ultimate Vampire Compendium - Max the Skill at level 15
This Skill isn't about making money, it's all about learning new things about Vampires. Here are the numerous things that you unlock with the Vampire Lore Skill and what they will do for your Sims. Bear in mind that while some of the skill levels are dry of new features, your notification panel will show you more info as your Sim reads. You get nothing for the first level, so we'll jump to level 2.
|Lore Lvl||Unlocks||What They Do|
|2||Unlocks Vampire Tome||Lets you purchase Encyclopedia Vampirica Volume 1|
|3||Order Plasma Packs||Plasma Packs can be purchased under Vampire Secrets. This lets Vampires satisfy their thirst need without feeding on Sims. Incredibly helpful to the new Aspiration for being a 'good' vampire.|
|4||Make Plasma Packs||Using fish or frogs, your Sim can create Plasma Packs to satisfy the thirst of vampires. For each fish or frog in your Sim's inventory, you can craft one plasma pack. All too easy to use to keep thirst topped off, whether you go around the neighborhood looking for logs or catch masses of low level fish at the river.|
|5||Garlic Braids||After growing some garlic, your Sim can now make Garlic Braids, Wreaths, and Garlands from their inventory. These make Vampires uncomfortable and will help to keep them at bay. Vampires cannot drink plasma while around even a regular garlic sat on a table or other surface, these braids have a much larger aura (about double).|
|6||Unlocks Vampire Tome||Lets you purchase Encylopedia Vampirica Volume II|
|7||Share Vampire Knowledge||Gives Sims a bump to their Vampire Lore skill. This gives a big chunk of skill experience for the user, so it can help you finish leveling the skill.|
|8||Order Seeds||Allows you to buy Plasma Fruit, Wolfsbane, and Sixam Mosquito Trap seeds for your home garden. Necessary to make many of the vampire drinks in large quantities, such as Sunlight Reversal Cocktail. Grow your own instead of searching the new neighborhood!|
|9||Plasma Fruit Recipes||Can make Plasma Fruit Salad (cooking) and the Plasma Jane drink (bar). These regenerate Vampire thirst. Can be handy as a good cook could provide a happy moodlet from it being a good meal, which isn't present when feeding.|
|10||Unlocks Vampire Tome||Can now purchase Encyclopedia Vampirica Volume III|
|11||Sunlight Reversal Cocktail||Allows Sims to create a cocktail at the bar that will reduce the harmful effects of Sunlight, allowing Vampires to go out in the daytime. It's great. So great, in fact, that it reverses sunlight's effects to instead produce energy. Your Sim will gain vampire energy as they walk about the daylight. This can work wonderfully with the Fresh Chef reward trait from Master Chef, which stops foods and drinks from spoiling. Takes 2 garlic and one plasma fruit to create.|
|12||Vampire Resistance Cocktail||Make at the bar. Reduces the chance of being affected by harmful vampire powers. Takes 2 wolfsbane to make this drink.|
|13||Unlocks Vampire Tome||Allows you to buy the Ultimate Vampire Tome from the computer, again found under Vampire Secrets. The book is $1,000|
|14||Draught of Reconfiguration||This allows your Vampire to reset all of their powers and keep their points. Good if you want to re-spec your vampire. The Draught of Reconfiguration is very easy to craft, requiring only 2 wolfsbane, 2 garlic, and 2 plasma fruit.|
|15||Cure for Vampirism||The Ultimate Vampire Cure drink can now be made at the bar. This will revert a Sim back to a regular mortal. Good if you change your mind about wanting to be a vampire and would like to change back to normal! It can also be thrown at a vampire to force a cure on them. Takes 10 garlic, 10 plasma fruit, and 10 wolfsbane to craft.|
