A few questions regarding Dawnguard.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone, I've already decided that I'm going to buy Skyrim Legendary Edition on Steam. I've been tempted so far for the past few days to throw $59.99 at Steam to get the game, even though the Summer Sale is right around the corner. I was reading up on Dawnguard, and even when it came out I heard somethings about the new features that were added. I read on the wiki here under the Vampires section that you can be a Vampire Lord, but you will be attacked on sight. I remember this being the same thing as being a full vampire without the DLC, but i'm confused where it says "As with Lycanthropy, townspeople will attack a Vampire Lord on sight, however this will no longer happens if the Dragonborn is a regular vampire. Unlike werewolf transformations, the vampire form can be exited at will." Does this mean that the Vampire Lord thing is a transformation? And you can transform at will? And when you are out of that form you won't be attacked on sight?

I haven't played Skyrim in a long time. I borrowed the game from a friend a while back and just couldn't get into. A few days ago I started playing Oblivion. I love it. The quests are so fun. I didn't have this much fun playing the quests in Skyrim, but I've decided to give it another chance because this is like my 3rd attempt to play Oblivion. Now that I've gotten into, I see how fun it is and all the lore and history surrounding TES just fascinates me. I read on a different Wiki that in Oblivion, being a full vampire (or at least 50%) means that you will lose health in the sun, however you will not be attacked on sight by the towns people. I was also wondering if this is the case in Skyrim with Dawnguard. If you're a full vampire or vampire lord does the sun harm you and if you wear a hood or helmet or something, does this stop or slow down that effect? I also remember in Skyrim without Dawnguard that when you turn into a full vampire the towns people will attack you. There were also some downsides to being a vampire. What are the pros and cons in the Dawnguard DLC to being a vampire/vampire lord? Thanks in advance and sorry for the super long post. I like to be detailed and thorough as to not cause confusion..

Vampire lord is a transformation similar to becoming a werewolf. You lose normal abilities like use of weapons, armor, shouts, and spells, but gain a lot of vampire powers. Read more here if you don't care about spoiling it completely: http://uesp.net/wiki/Skyrim:Vampire_Lord

Hey thanks for replying. I read it, and all of those things sound cool. It makes me want to buy that game right now xD But I still want to know one more thing.
The part where I said if you wear a hood or helmet when you're a vampire, does this negate the effects that the sun has on you?
