Werewolves are a new type of Sim that come with The Sims 3 Supernatural Expansion. They're a much less detailed life state than Witches or Fairies, but have some great abilities in collecting, live a 50% longer life span and bring some fun variety to the neighborhood.

Becoming a Werewolf
You can become a Werewolf in Supernatural several ways. First, you can create your Sim in CAS and use the Supernatural type on the basics selector. If you do this, press the transform button at the bottom so that you can customize the look of your Sim in werewolf form. Next, you can buy Bottled Curse of the Lycan at the Alchemy Store or make it yourself with Alchemy. Finally, you can befriend a Werewolf and ask them to bite you.

Werewolves can Sniff Sims Inappropriately and get Scolded

Werewolf Behavior
Werewolves get a few fun socials, to growl at Sims and Pets, joke about shedding fur or sniff Sims. When angered, they will transform from human to werewolf form where they're more likely to win a fight. They can tear up the furniture and find this to be a fun activity. If this is done enough, the object will end up with permanent damage and offer to be replaced but is still usable.

Sims 3 Supernatural - Transforming into Werewolves
A Male and Female Sim Transforming

Sims can transform from Human to Wolf form at any time, but during a Full Moon they are forced to transform to Werewolves, during this time they'll get the +40 mood boost, just like other Sims but cannot revert to human form. While in Werewolf form, and growing hungry they get a Hungry Like the Wolf moodlet and can eat fish and other foods raw (though some are not edible for an unknown reason).

Sims 3 Supernatural - Werewolves Hunting as a Pack
Wolf Pack Hunting, Led by Alpha Wolf

Hunting and Packs
Your Werewolf can hunt the world for Gems, Insects, and Metals. Werewolves can make a lot of money buying one of the new Gem Cutting Machines. They are able to hunt in packs with other Werewolves, which increases the rate at which they'll finish hunts. Packs are formed much like groups, with Sims needing to be on the most basic friendly terms to accept. You do not need to have Sims in your household to form a pack, and the pack leader (whoever queues hunt with pack interactions) will get all the loot. When the hunt specific items ability is unlocked at level 6, your pack leader can pick a type for the focus of the hunt. Stay on the lookout for collectibles you can grab manually while your Werewolf is out hunting!

Werewolves benefit from the Gatherer trait if they cut gems, as they can make more money but it doesn't seem to affect the outcome of hunting.

Leveling Lycanthropy
Simply hunt for items and use other Werewolf-specific socials and actions, and you'll gradually gain ability as a Werewolf. They will find more and better items using collect and fail at howling less often. Unlike Fairy and Witch, this won't take a table for me to show you the benefits of leveling up. While Werewolves' Lycanthropy hidden skill has ten levels, only a few of them register and show a level. So, any stated levels will be there only to show you how far you might expect to go before unlocking each ability:

Levels 1-10 Hunting Improvements: As you level your Werewolf, their senses will be honed, allowing them to easier find items. You can find up to four items at once as a high level Wolf. So, while you won't see a notification for every level you gain, know your Werewolf becomes better at finding things as you use abilities.

Sims 3 Supernatural - The Cursed Bite will infect a Sim with Lycanthropy
Cursed Bites spread Lycanthropy

Level 3: Cursed Bite: Your Sim attempts to bite the target and curse them with Lycanthropy. This interaction can fail but will be guaranteed to succeed with the Alpha Wolf lifetime reward. After two days, the initial bite moodlet will disappear and the Sim will transform for the first time.

Level 6: Hunt Specific Items: This will let you find Gems, Metals, or Insects specifically.

Level 8: Anger Management: The Werewolf is less likely to transform when angered.

Level 10: Full Potential: I don't see any specific perks to this last level, although Werewolves will be less likely to fail at bites and howls than they once were.

Sims 3 Supernatural - Werewolves run at a faster rate of speed
Werewolves run faster

Alpha Wolf
This Lifetime Reward costs 20,000 Happiness and ensures your Sim will no longer fail at Cursed Bites or Growls. The Terrifying Howl interaction is added, which can be used at daytime unlike Howl at the Moon and can cause Sims to faint and take a -20 terrified moodlet for an hour.

Werewolves can also play fetch with witches wands :)

Werewolves like to play fetch and will play with anyone. The other player seems to automatically find a stick to throw. When they succeed at fetch they may let you scratch their tummy. My opinion is they are rather like two legged puppies except when they are angry.

I'm having a bit of a problem. I can't find any option to turn sims in the same household through social interaction.

Bethany says...
To turn someone in the household you have to either have your werewolf sim at level 3 in the Lycanthropy skill but if you don't want to wait you can select the sim you want to turn and go into friendly and make them ask be werewolf for the werewolf curse, but your werewolf has to be in werewolf form and it won't always work unless your werewolf has the Alpha Wolf lifetime reward

Other interactions for Sims to werewolf include: imply mother was a poodle, rub belly - positive social, smack on nose (with rolled up newspaper) - negative social.

Also, a fairy can play tag with a werewolf - the fairy will shrink and the werewolf will try to catch him or her.

Werewolf can eat raw food while in human form too.

how come whenever i try to let my sim eat raw fish it says, this fish is too strange for your awesome werewolf claws to eat
17th October 2012 8:10am
Misty Pokemon says...
Certain foods are unable to be eaten by werewolves. My sim has the same problem.

Norinia says...
also now only mermaids can eat raw fish.
That's not true. I just started a game with a werewolf and he can eat all the raw fish he wants. But remember there are some that are too small for werewolves to eat.

Sorry for my bad English, but a curious (and annoying) bug had just happened to me. While my werewolf was in France, he was forced to turn by the full moon: but his appearance had randomly changed from the one I set when I created him. Not only his clothes, but also his hair and facial structure. Even after he returned to Moonlight Falls, his appearance continued to change at random every time he turned. There's a way to fix this?
10th September 2012 9:39pm
Jacquelyn says...
That's just him turning into a warewolf! :) That sadly does happen, when they change their face becomes mis-formed- it's normal! On Full Moons they can't help it but, on any other time if you want to change back just click on the sims and go to the 'Warewolf' tab! (Hope that helps~)

I cant transform from human to warewolf even during full moon nights...i have also tried to make my sim angry but nothing there any other way i should also try?

Try "practice fighting" with other werewolves.
19th September 2012 3:47pm
Kathryn says...
This happened to me to. I havent tried the practice fighting tab, because in my town i cant find another werewolf

No woohooing while in werewolf form with those who are not in werewolf form as well. You get rejected with a "There is something seriously wrong with you." or something to that effect and a negative hit on the relationship.
12th September 2012 11:12pm
Corvara says...
I've never had problems with that. My vampire never rejected my werewolf with that lines. Maybe their relationship level is too low.

tabby says...
My werewolf and witch (roommates) woohoo all the time while in werewolf form. Maybe you need to live with the other Sim?
13th September 2012 6:18pm
Noel says...
If the other sim has initiated woohoo to the werewolf before, it works. My witch would not woohoo with her husband werewolf in werewolf form if he initiated it, but once she had initiated it once, she was okay with him asking. I was hoping it would improve the chances of a werewolf baby or that the full moon conception would have some interesting perk, but this is not the case.
15th September 2012 7:35pm
Trelow says...
Maybe. Same sim would woohoo with him when he was human form, but then freak out when I tried it after he turned. Happened with 3 different sims, could have just been something to do with that save file.
16th September 2012 4:02am
Lauren says...
Maybe the sim is a supernatural skeptic ?
14th May 2013 10:11am
Abbey says...
I want my sim to be Alpha male, how do I do that ?
14th September 2012 2:37am
User says...
Can you be alpha female?
2nd January 2013 4:07am
Misty Pokemon says...
It's a life time reward. Just click on the tab, collect the points, and then return to the tab, and find the reward. :)

Kat says...
Are there any specific things you have to do first before you can start turning other sims into werewolves? After I got the prompt saying I can, I only saw the option appear on ONE random sim. But they left before I could do it.

AzurePhoenix says...
Interesting note with werewolf child. There were no other werewolves in his household. But one day he was around the werewolf family (at the pool but I doubt that matters) and he got an option to "Practice Hunting." Away from them it wasn't there. He went back and there it was again. Practicing requires supervision maybe?

I feel like a complete moron but how do you make your werewolf hunt i stupidly started a werewolf in Appaloosa Plains so no other werewolves to hunt with...How do i hunt solo?
18th September 2012 11:03pm
sims3addict16 says...
Have you tried clicking on the sim while they were in werewolf form? I think I saw an option to hunt solo. Oh and another note is that female werewolves cannot transform into werewolves while pregnant, not even in the early stage when they are unaware of it, which also means that can't get pregnant while in werewolf form.
21st September 2012 11:16am
shadow says...
I'm also having problems with hunting solo. When I click on my were, the only options I get are howl at the moon and transform into human. I'm wondering if it's just a glitch? Or is there a hidden werewolf skill where I have to use transform and howl until it levels up to get more interactions?

courtney says...
you have to click the ground somewhere when your in wolf form.
