Skyrim companions: How to cure werewolf lycanthropy disease

To say that you guys were excited about becoming a werewolf in Skyrim in an understatement to say the moment prior to release, but now we have some handy information for those who are actually looking for a cure to rid yourself of the lycanthropy disease for good.

Since Skyrim is now out there to the masses, it is no secret anymore that players have the option of turning into a hairy beast, which will then grant the user various abilities as well as taking away some standard gameplay features as well – such as not being able to loot, talk to people, can’t use items and so on.

If you have already started the companions quest line and have gained the ability to transform into a werewolf, you’ll be pleased to know that there is a way to completely cure yourself, but it will come at a price as you will no longer be able to become a werewolf for the rest of your Skyrim adventure.

If you’re still interested in finding a cure, you’ll need to first complete the companions quest line till the end. After this, if you talk to everyone you will discover that Kodlak, commander of the companions is looking for a cure. Once you have done this step, talking to him will then start the Blood’s Honor quest, in which you have to kill at least one of the four Glenmoril witches and take one of their heads. Take two heads though if you want to cure yourself of lycanthropy for good measure.

Once you reach the Glory of the Dead quest you then have to use the blue flame combined with the second Glenmoril witch’ head to set your wolf spirit free. This is done in Ysgramor’s Tomb where you used the first witch head to cure Kodlak. Once you set your wolf spirit free, it will then come out of you. Once you kill it you will then be completely cured of lycanthropy!

So there we have it, we’re not sure you would want to cure yourself though as many of you will agree that being a werewolf in the game is a pretty enjoyable experience and allows you to do things you couldn’t normally do – like killing victims with ease without gaining a bounty.

If these steps helped you, leave us a comment below. Let us know if you are having any problems with getting this to work as well, since we have heard that one or two glitches may appear when starting quests.

this article is missing a key detail!!! If you’re having trouble it’s because you can’t just go back after curing Kodlak. You have to keep doing tasks for Farkas and Vilkas until one of them asks to be cleansed. Then the quest Purity will begi, THEN you can cure yourself.

I killed kodlaks beast, got the glenmorial witches quest, thought I’d just run along and cure myself, now I find out that I need Vilkas and Farkas?
Vilkas died whilst following me, and Farkas got stuck inside the shrine of Talos because of a bug.
Am I screwed?

If you have already killed Kodlak, and cured Vilkas and Farkas, just got back a few days later in Skyrim.  As long as you have a head or 2, you can cure yourself…if you want to.

I want to cure myself of being a werewolf but not because I don’t want to be one. Let me explain: when i was done with the quest with aelo the huntress were you become a werewolf a glitch happened that doesnt let me go into first person anymore.i didnt notice it in time to start over so i saved it with this bug. I feel like this was caused by becoming a werewolf because of two reasons: my r3 button still works ive tested it, and in my other skyrim file were im not a werewolf i can still use first person… Read more »

I completed this, killed my wolf spirit, and still don’t get rested bonuses, nor do I get the “lovers comfort” bonus. My day counter of “days as a werewolf” is still counting, but the transformation power is gone.

What are the benefits of completing the Companion quest line? If its to become a werewolf, and I don’t want to be one, is there any point to completing it? Loot? XP?

I really was 50/50 on curing myself. So I left Ysgramor’s Tomb after clearing it. If you return later even with a witches head you CAN NOT cure the werewolf, you press A on the thing in the middle and nothing happens 🙁 Unless my game has glitched :/

Thanks for the info, I was interested in becoming a werewolf at first but then realized the trade off was that you can never get the well-rested buff from sleeping anymore. So I’m gonna take this quest to kill off the lycanthropy spirit within.

Were can you get witch heads other than glenmoril cave? I took all of the heads from there and placed them in a dead character and now they are gone because the character’s body disappeared.  Any ideas on how to solve this issue?
