Vampire lore is a skill in The Sims 4: Vampires. This skill helps vampires become stronger and can also help Sims make a cure for vampirism. It is also the first adult skill children may acquire without having to maximize one of their child skills.
The Sims 4 Vampires introduces the all-new Vampire Lore Skill. Sims can master Vampire Lore by researching “Vampire Secrets” on a computer, asking others about Vampire History, or reading unlocked Vampire Books. Sims with a higher Vampire Lore Skill will unlock special interactions, crafts, recipes and drinks. This skill is essential for vampires.
The Vampire based skill books (Encyclopedia Vampirica) can only be purchased at Level 2 Vampire Lore via the Vampire Secrets interaction on the computer.
Once a Sim reaches level 2 of the Vampire Lore Skill, they can purchase Vampire Tomes by using the Vampire Secrets > Purchase Vampire Tomes interaction on a computer. As a Sim levels up, they will continue to unlock all editions of the book. Each book allows Sims to raise their Vampire Lore to a certain level, but after they have learned everything they can from the books and computer the vampire lore will not increase and your sim will become bored
