Any other vampires feel this way?
As far as lore goes, I'm a terrible vampire; I NEVER feed, unless for the New Alliances mission or I happen to have a blood potion when I need my health replenished. Other than that, I see no point in feeding. The fire weakness can be easily countered with enchanted armor, and the abilities at stage 4 just make me more powerful. For me anyway, there's no logical benefit to feeding.

Am I the only one who feels this way, or are there other blood-starved vampires out there like me?

I never really played much as a vampire because not regenerating stamina at day ruins it for me, but i dont really see the point of feeding as well.

In the defult game without dawnguard, you will get your ♥♥♥ ♥♥♥♥ing whooped by the guards as a stage 4. yaknow, because they are hostile.

Does dawnguard disable the peoples hostility? Now thats awesome, then i might just give it a try again.

Well dovahneer, I'm referring to the dawnguard mod. And yes Zinnov, dawnguard removes NPC hostility at stage 4. So there's almost no drawbacks to going without blood for awhile.

Yeah. But more because I was a good natured vampire that doesn't hurt innocent people.

I installed "Better Vampires" mod to customize my vampiric condition and make it more interesting and hardcore.
For example, I took constant damage from sunlight, so being outdoors at day was a big nope, though I was faster, stronger and resistant to magic the more I feed, and could attack while being invisible at cost of stamina and magicka. I also could convert other people to vampirism and feed from recently killed bandits.

I had to deal with angry civilians when I was at stage 4 (even with dawnguard installed), and violent vigilants of Stendarr with silver poison and better weapons. It was fun.

I use the same mod an also "reverse" my vampirism. I have to feed regularly to stay strong. I tend to go by classical vampire rules, so I can be out in sunlight, but am weakened. But a good natured vampire I am not.

Picking locks, sneaking into the bedrooms of the hapless sleeping innocent, feeding off them, then sneaking away again into the night. I find it fun but haven't been a vampire for a while, always seems to bug for me.

Magicka is the only thing that does regenerate. Extremely slowly... but it does.
