    Why? I haven't seen everything there is to magical powers yet either. The pack's only been out for a few days.

    I just wouldn't vote on a poll regarding something I literally have no ability to have an opinion on just me. (as in if someone else made this poll I wouldn't vote if I hadn't played magic yet)

    Both. Why not both?

    After what ten polls people should know by now I stink at making them...

    P.S. "Vampires always vin". Is this to be spoken out loud in a classic Vampire accent? Like, "Vampires vill alvays vin!" Like the way they speak in 'What We Do In The Shadows'?

    Maybe... >.>

    Nah, we've got all the time in the world, literally. When you don't die, don't really need to sleep, or bathe, or worry about socialization, or emotions then you can do just about anything you want. You wand-slingers always talk about superiority, but you're still grounded in the flesh and its desires.

    Least I don't need a max level perk to not risk instantly bursting into flames everyday.

    SHOTS FIRED!!

    I do have the vamp pack. I has all the packs! I just will appreciate anything to do with casters more because it's what I want to play out on my sim. I did enjoy staking those undead folks though when I had the mod to do it (no offense ya'll...).

    Witches, always and forever <3

    Years I've waited, and then I had to - no offence - see those vampires come first, which I've played - mostly because they were the closest thing we had to magic lol. But now that the witches / casters / whatever are finally back, there can be no better one :love:

    Sorry vampies, back to ye olde graves it is.

    @Ceres_Meiriona agree with you btw, about the taking / manipulating energy. I look at it quite similarly.

    I'm a sucker for vampires. I love them in every way possible. They both have good game play but I have to choose vampires because I love them more. They are just so dark and gothic.
    Zombies, oh please oh please give us zombies!! :'(

    That's only because you keep casting Duplicato to stack the votes.

    Spellcasters, I have this whole hierarchy when it comes to magic and supernatural beings.

    Spellcasters are part of the ruling class
    Elven/Nymphs/Fairies I’m not sure I want them to be more like deities. So maybe they’ll rise over spellcasters, but I prefer to be a spellcaster.
    Werewolves
    Mermans
    Orcs/Ogres
    Minotaurs and satyrs
    Vampires and Daemons

    BAHAHA! I almost spit coffee all over my screen. You two are cracking me up.

    @Hermitgirl I feel like we should be piled on a merry-go-round shouting, "Faster, faster, we need another caster!" LOLOL I'm not sure what the vampire chant would be, though. :taps chin: "Faster, faster, we need a new cadaver?" Somehow, I feel that doesn't quite do my beloved vampires justice, though. lol Ah well, always a pleasure to razz y'all a bit, though. ;)

    *jumps on the Casters merry-go-round*
    (look, I don't have the Vamps pack. it's only not on the bottom of my GP wishlist because JA exists. I've seen tons of gameplay videos from a ton of sources and well, it's still there. Fair play to anyone who enjoys the pack & everything vampire, I just... don't.)

    EDIT: Also not counting glitches RoM just came out and dlc or mmo updates always tend to be buggy first week

    why not though? DLC for this game tends to be buggy for a lot longer than a week. And sometimes the amount of bugs even increases over time (as with Vampires.) So I'm not sure if I could make a decision barring bugs.

    All things considered, I think I prefer the spellcasters to vampires. Both are ridiculously powerful, but the spellcasters seem a bit harder to abuse, thanks to that overcharge system. Plus, I feel like their abilities are a tad bit more creative than vampire powers are. With vampires, a lot of the powers seem like "branded" versions of cheats or other traits that had already existed in the game as opposed to something new and unique.

    I mean vampires are great, I mean who doesn't love a Bloody Mary, but how can you compare that with a cauldron of
    macaroni and cheese.

    This is a real close race for me. I love both, but since casters can fill up their needs with a potion that only takes an apple to make, they win this one.

    I will say, Caleb seems to be making quick work of the spell casters he comes across in my game. LOL

    I am enjoying being a spell caster more than playing a vampire.

    I was thinking along those lines as well. xD

    But I still LOVE some vampires, I plan on my witchy sim marrying a vampire (since in 3 they were almost shunned from doing so especially if they were famous) so my new witchy sim just started dating Izzy Fabulous (he is a grand master in my game and looks a bit different after his change to immortality) can't wait for them to marry and see what kind of kids they get.

    I do prefer Vampire because they had unique powers unlike RoM's spellcasters.
