How to Kill a Werewolf

Step 2: Weaknesses

Like all creatures, they have weaknesses. Simples include Silver, and stakes to the heart, but lets go into more detail!

Pure Silver: A werewolf legend purest will always say that a pure silver weapon (dagger, bullet, spear, etc) is the best way to destroy a werewolf. Alchemists and sorcerers throughout the ages have used silver for its magical properties. Some interesting points of pure silver is that is has the highest thermal conductivity - the intensive property of a material which relates its ability to conduct heat. Mirrors are made with silver with a process called silvering. Silver and werewolves also have a common connection - the full moon. The Greeks, Romans, Sumerians, Babylonians, Egyptians, Aztecs, Norse, Native American and just about every other ancient society used silver to build artifacts, coins, talismans, and jewelry ascribed with different powers and significance.

Mercury: Now here is where it gets a little tricky. The werewolf legends all say that silver will kill a werewolf. The problem with this is that when these legends were written the metal mercury was thought of as a kind of silver. It was called quicksilver. Mercury can form an ally with silver but it is completely unrelated to silver. Mercury is a relatively poor conductor of heat but is a good conductor of electricity and it can also be used in silvering mirrors. Alchemists often thought of mercury as the first matter from which all metals were formed. It turns out that there could be a mistake in the translation that silver will kill werewolves. It is very possible that the actual metal used to defeat the were-beast was actually mercury. Better carry silver and mercury bullets just to be safe!

Destroying the Heart of the Brain: Piecing the heart, much like in the case of a vampire, is said to kill a werewolf. Of course, it isn't enough to just stop the heart from beating because werewolves have great regeneration abilities so the heart must be cut out and destroyed, preferably burned. The same goes for the brain. Any type of skull smashing blow should stop a werewolf just like any other creature. Then, the head must be removed and destroyed to finish the job.

Wolfsbane- A highly poisonous plant, known to repel these beasts, however, it is said if it touches their skin they will die within seconds.

Well, people please stop all of this. none of you are werewolves, they dont exist. even if you are it is propbably with some gang of pals you like roleplaying with (like being geeks that spend all their times playing MMOs and D&D). the creature described is no more of legend and stop thinking you "are" one. there are medical terms that may be werewolf-like, but there is no literal "lycanthropy." same goes for vampires
hi just so you now werewolves are real thankyou very much and to pruv it i'm going to tell you a little story so here it goes i am a werewolf i downloaded a spell of the internetc because i luv twilight and i luv jacob so i wanted to be just like him and the spell worked about a month after i did it.bye
The most effective way of introducing mercury into a body is by putting it in the tip of a hollow-point bullet followed by injection with a syringe.

Hate to point it out to you, but a single drop of mercury introduced that way will kill someone - werewolf OR human. That's if the hollow-point bullet doesn't kill them.

Either way, be ready for the murder rap, because (according to legend) a werewolf will return to human form after being killed. Good luck convincing the cops or jury that what you shot was a werewolf.
