Personal Grooming

Lick away the dirt.

Is your werewolf feeling dirty? Just have them lick themselves clean. Why re-invent the wheel when the answer was inside them all along. Social appropriateness of using Groom Self may vary.



Dig up lost treasures and artifacts.

There is a wealth of lost artifacts right beneath your Werewolf’s feet. With the ability to Scavenge Ground, werewolves will be able to pull treasures right out the earth with their bare hands.

Territory Marking


Leave a mark in the world and relieve bladder need.

Be free. Enjoy the relief of being able to Mark Territory anywhere and at any time. The world is your canvas.

The Runt skill level grants you the following werewolf abilities:

  • Voracious Hunger
  • Hunter
  • The Will To Resist
  • Enhanced Smell
  • Somber Howl

Voracious Hunger

Devour objects to satisfy hunger.

Werewolves have an insatiable hunger, they need to eat all the time. This is because they get hungry much faster than normal Sims.


Learn to hunt for food.

Werewolves want their food to be very fresh. They can hunt out in nature’s buffet whenever they’re hungry.

A werewolf with the Carnivore temperament needs the Hunter ability to be able to go hunting and find raw meat.

The Will to Resist


Regain control while rampaging.

With some added mental fortitude, a large dollop of willpower, and a few breathing exercises, Werewolves can attempt to Regain Control after losing it and entering a rampage. If successful, they will immediately stop rampaging.

Enhanced Smell

Sniff out information and treasure.

With a new heightened ability to smell, you can put your nose to the ground and smell emotions on other Sims, sniff out treasure buried in the backyard, or detect nearby occult Sims. Some things smell better than others, so get out there and sniff!

Somber Howl


Learn a howl that reduces fury.

Being a werewolf is hard, and sometimes a werewolf has just gotta speak their truth. They’ll be able to release a Somber Howl from time to time to calm down and reduce their Fury.

Exploring the underground tunnels beneath Moonwood Mill can sometimes lead down to a dark dead end. With this ability, you will be able to conquer them by seeing things you may have otherwise missed, as well as spend less time hunting for prey at night.

Natural Healing

Recover from injuries more quickly.

With a bit of effort and focus, the strength of the werewolf blood in your body can be harnessed to recover from various fights, injuries, and all physical maladies much more quickly.

Pack Howl

Howl to the pack to fulfill social needs.

Use this new Pack Howl to communicate over great distances with other canine-minded creatures. Is there any sweeter sound than howls on the wind? Ditch the cell phone for the social dopamine drip, return to wolf.

Curse Bearer


Turn other Sims into Werewolves via a cursed bite.

Seek others, grant them the gift. Seek the moon, embrace its light.

You know what they say: the more, the merrier. If you want to turn normal Sims into werewolves, unlock this ability and bite them in the arm to infect them with lycanthropy.

Vicious Howl

Let loose a terrifying howl.

Master the Vicious Howl, a scream that strikes fear in the hearts of all. Incredible satisfying and fun-at, though maybe not so much for other Sims who might be nearby?

Hunting Party

Everything is better with friends, especially combing the wilderness for tasty treats. The Lead Hunting Party interaction lets you bring others – even non-werewolf friends and family – along on a hunt. Since teamwork makes the dream work, you will gain additional goodies too.

To unlock the Hunting Party ability, you need to gain the Hunter skill first.

Lunar Resistance

Protect against the moon’s harmful effects.

While a full moon is a glorious sight to many, it sparks dread for some werewolves. With Lunar Resistance, a werewolf will no longer feel it’s influence on their psyche, letting them explore the night unhindered.



Quickly travel around the world by digging tunnels.

Bore through the earth with a handy Tunnel Here interaction. Perfect for wanting to make a grand entrance or needing to make a quick escape. Werewolves will make it look effortless!

Primal Instincts


Tap into your instincts for a quick confidence boost.

Who needs all these unnecessary emotions? Being a werewolf who can Activate Primal Instincts means channeling the monster within to focus the mind on what’s important: being a confident werewolf who can keep other more negative moods at bay.

The Apex skill level lets you enjoy the following werewolf abilities:

  • Super Speed
  • Alpha Wolf
  • Immortal Wolf
  • Lunar Howl
  • Legacy of the Lycan

Super Speed

Run at super speed.

Put those werewolf muscles to good use and zoom everywhere! You can now choose to Enable Super Speed at any moment. Run after the mailman! Run into the woods! The possibilities are endless.

Alpha Wolf

Win most fights and challenges against other werewolves.

Those fledgling pups are beneath you now. As a natural Alpha, enjoy quicker pack advancement, the ease of taking leadership of a pack, and better results when fighting other werewolves. And if you run into Greg, give him a taste of his own medicine.

Immortal Wolf

Werewolves that possess this ability will life forever.

Live forever! The gift is finally realized. As long as the moon remains, so shall you.

Lunar Howl

Howl under the moonlight to transform temperaments.

The most forbidden howl. Release what little remains of your humanity and succumb to the moon’s glow. Be warned, you may never be the same again.

Legacy of the Lycan

Turn Ability Points into Satisfaction Points.

Your journey as a werewolf knows no ends! As you continues to rank up, you can turn that extra werewolf knowledge into 250 Satisfaction Points.

How to unlock Dormant Werewolf Abilities

Dormant Abilities require Ability Points to unlock. Once you’ve fulfilled all the requirements, and performed specific actions, you can unlock those abilities.
Dorman abilities have story-based unlocks.

Here’s a list of the Dormant Abilities you can unlock in The Sims 4 Werewolves:

  • Werewolf Empathy
  • Werewolf Mentorship
  • Werewolf Diplomacy
  • Lunar Epiphany
  • Werewolf Menace
  • Transformation Mastery

Transformation Mastery


Turn into a werewolf at will.

Staying contained and away from others while rampaging will grant werewolves a brief moment of clarity. This insight will help them master the art of transformation, granting the ability to call upon the werewolf form at any time while retaining a semblance of humanity.

Be warned! Even with this newfound mastery, werewolves will still be susceptible to the ever encroaching Fury boiling within.

To unlock the Transformation Mastery ability, you need to go through a full rampage cycle without scaring other Sims.

That can be a difficult task. Most Sims will automatically get the Scared buff when they encounter a werewolf.

Werewolf Mentorship


Teach other werewolves with skill and grace.

Werewolves possessing this ability have been around the block, and have a wealth of insight on all things werewolf. Werewolves under their guidance will receive bonus rank, mood, and relationship gains when being mentored, taught to howl, or having werewolf experiences shared with them.

If you’re planning to become a caregiver for werewolf toddlers, this is the ability you need to unlock to get the job done.

To unlock the Werewolf Mentorship ability, you need to run Practice Howling, Share Werewolf Experience, or Pack Mentor as a veteran werewolf on a Good Friend werewolf.

Lunar Epiphany


Read the ancient werewolf writing.

Your werewolf can comprehend the lost secrets of the moon. This is an important step towards understanding the history and nature of werewolves, and can lead to learning how to cure this ailment for good.

To unlock the Lunar Epiphany ability, read werewolf-related literature. Go to the library and read as many books on werewolves as you can.

Werewolf Empathy


Help pacify other werewolves.

After spending enough time around other werewolves, you’ll learn a thing or two about their behavior. Sometimes, a werewolf just needs another werewolf to hear them out. With Pacify, you can remove all Fury from another werewolf and even prevent them from rampaging.

To unlock the Werewolf Empathy ability, you need to reach the Delta rank in a wolf pack. To rise to the ranks of the pack, do actions that align with the pack’s values and benefit its members.

Werewolf Menace

Your Werewolf Sim has given in to the werewolf within and now has a thirst for chaos. Scaring others will now make him feel playful! Sure, it’s not nice to antagonize someone who is already terrified, but they left nice on the side of the road a long time ago.

To unlock the Werewolf Menace ability, you need to do Ferocious Intimidation, Turn into Werewolf, or do a Vicious Howl on a Sim who is already frightened, while still being below maximum Fury.

Werewolf Diplomacy


Use diplomacy to win over werewolf allies.

Werewolves with this ability have the social tools to convince others that werewolves are still somewhat human. They can use this skill to bestow the Werewolf Ally trait on Sims, changing their outlook on werewolves forever.

To unlock the Werewolf Diplomacy ability, you need to successfully Ask for Werewolf Sympathy on a non-werewolf Sim.


The Sims 4 Werewolves lets you purchase special Werewolf abilities or perform specific actions to unlock them. As your Werewolf accesses new skills, they learn how to control their Werewolf Powers. They also become more skilled at influencing werewolves and non-werewolves alike.
