Welcome :) Could you post a save game at the time of infection?
ON HIATUS. Will be difficult to find.
Come join the Unofficial Daggerfall Unity Discord.
See the Daggerfall Unity Wiki on the UESP.

This one is my fault sorry. I forgot to tag lycanthropy correctly as a disease when creating it. :oops:

This was fixed in 0.10.3 however - and tested thoroughly. If you experienced this recently, you must still be on an older build.

Ok, I'll try to re-download it and try again.
I did download daggerfall unity just this week.
Been playing daggerfall since 2006 :-)
I am trying a new build right now just to get the save data..
I'll let you know if it works or not.

So I just had the dream indicating I was infected, I took a cure disease potion. Traveled to finish the quest I was on then traveled to a temple to get more potions. I have all the attribute raises indicating I am infected, I tried to cure disease at temple but they say I am not diseased. Here is save before I traveled,

You can only cure lycanthropy in the 3 days prior to turning - while the disease is actually active. Once you have become a lycanthrope, you can no longer cure it like a disease.

Note that potions for spells which carry a chance component will need to have a successful roll for that spell effect to work. It's likely your Cure Disease potion simply didn't work. You can see the chance of potion spells on this UESP page.

You still have time to get cured though, and there are two temples just SW and SE of your save. I travelled recklessly to the Gentle Tree of Kynareth less than a day away and cured your character.

I guess that is the confusion, I got the disease Brain Rot later on and tried to use a potion to cure it the first time I got the cast failed message and wasn't cured the second time no message and I was cured. Since I drank the potion I got no message so the assumption is that it was cured, I have had the same thing occur with using an actual spell. With no cure message used the only way you can tell if it worked for other diseases is if you DON'T get a message. I guess the best strategy is to go directly to a temple right after the dream as I have not had good luck using a potion or a spell.

Hi.
I did upgrade mu DFUnity but haven't been infected by lycantrophy on the build I made to try it out.
I'll report back here if I get infected and can not use the healers (within the three days) to get cured.
