As the title says, I am looking for an ability to add experience to the werewolf skill.

I know that normally you can advance skill with the command

player.advskill <skillname> <amount>

However, this does not work when trying to advance the werewolf skill with

player.advskill werewolf 100

I also tried

player.advskill beastform 100

with no success.

+1 Had a look on the usual sites but couldn't find anything – Alex Apr 12 '13 at 10:51
Yup, I spent 2 hours googling for it and came up empty. A look into the creation kit also did not reveal the information I am looking for. – user28015 Apr 12 '13 at 11:19
Don't suppose the console commands are case sensitive? Maybe try "Werewolf" instead of "werewolf"? – Alex Apr 12 '13 at 12:24
It's not a regular skill. It's probably tracked as a quest variable. – SevenSidedDie Apr 12 '13 at 15:39

You can easily get enough points to unlock every perk:

  1. Open your console
  2. Type "set DLC1WerewolfPerkPoints to XX" (xx = the number of actual perks your Werewolf tree contains, dependent on any mods you may have installed. Vanilla has 11 total perks, Bloodmoon Rising mod has 23, etc.)

And there you have it. Happy werewolfing.

The werewolf perk tree is a set of perks, not a skill. To gain a perk via the console, find its perk ID and use the addperk console command. The perks are listed starting with xx – those should be replaced by the load order of your Dawnguard plugin. For example, to add the Animal Vigor perk when the plugin is in the 03 plugin slot, use the command

player.addperk 030059a5
