It can fight, it gains extra influence if it bites, and it gives just as many points as an aristocratic one if it matures. Thematically that seems kind of lame, it seems like if you're going for influence a vampire high up in the royalty or something would give you the most.

I'm guessing aristocratic vampire originally gave 5 points, but then either they changed their minds, or the cards were misprinted.

well in the FAQ thread someone said that FFG responded and that it's not a misprint, so it's a bit disappointing that they didn't give the aristocratic vampire something to compensate, like you think he could at least use his influence to create a few road blocks or something ya know?

It's really weird that the newest vampires have the most health, the reckless vampire is the most useful one, and the aristocratic ones, which are most like dracula are the most useless.

...Or the cards are wrong, but FFG have preferred to errata the rulebooks?

...Or it was reduced from 5 to 4 after playtesting showed Dracula was winning too quickly?

One of the latest previews/news articles FFG posted (just around time of release) actually mentions 3 or 4 (not the 3,4,5), so I tend to think it was intentionally changed, albeit late in the design process.

Seems to me entirely thematic that aristocrats are useless. :)

But I do suspect this was a late change.

With Aristocratic vampire the hunter must get delayed in order to get rid of it. Not a big deal, but still something.

Delay can be huge. But pretty much all the vamps die to a stake, so this time isn't really that bad.
