Possible Bug - Dead Thrall[edit]

Not sure if this is a common bug or not, but a Dead Thrall I had picked up along the way to the torch puzzle, a Vampire Nightstalker, started attacking me after I got my hand spiked by the button. This has never happened to me before and the aggro was so instantaneous with the activating of the button. My other follower, Brelnya and her summon did not attack the Vampire Nightstalker back and instead, let her keep attacking me for the duration of the animation and the ensuing fight. If any other conjuration masters could try this out to see if it's consistent or if I just got a raw deal. 07:52, 28 June 2012 (UTC)

Can confirm. This just happened to me, with an Ancient Vampire. I also have the latest versions of the USKPs (including Dawnguard), so I'm not actually sure whether it's a "bug" per se or intentional. Adding it to the article now. Dbbolton (talk) 05:26, 10 April 2014 (GMT)

Bug - Dialogue[edit]

Has anyone encountered the a bug where once you release Serana she does not talk with you on Xbox? I approach Serana after releasing her and am given the prompt to press A for Mysterious Woman. Pressing A gives no response. I tried reloading from the entrance to Dimhollow Cavern with no results. Starfalcon 15:07, 5 July 2012 (UTC)

Apparently exiting Dimhollow Cavern and re-entering fixes this. Starfalcon 16:29, 6 July 2012 (UTC)

Bug(PC) - Animation[edit]

No animation for stabbing your hand, and Serana appears outside of the monolith when puzzle is completed. Sometimes her animations reset and she goes into that Da Vinci pose for a second or two. — Unsigned comment by (talk) at 09:04 on 3 August 2012

Dawnguard are trying to kill me[edit]

I finished the whole quest line for the vampires and I had moved the dawnguard plug-in to another storage divice. Later i played skyrim again and forgot to put my flash drive( had the plug-in). I put it in and restarted my xbox. But when I started playing I had to restart dawnguard, though it still showed the 20 dawnguard quests completed in the stats menu. Also when i decided to complete it again agmaer attacked me, Tolan did, and so did the other dawnguard. I'm thinking it might be because i made a blooded vampire my dead thrall, i ment on the rode to the fort. Because reanimated thrall wont go away from my active effects menu. Note: i have the twin souls perk and tried summoning 2 more things. I need help Lamar155 19:43, 14 August 2012 (UTC)lamar155

Okay, the problem here is that some of the Dawnguard data - specifically, the factions and journal system - still remains with the rest of the game to maintain playability. (Factions are nothing new to the Skyrim engine, and hence, the new ones added with Dawnguard are saved to the main "Factions" file) This means that the game still considers you part of the Vampire faction, even when you have to restart the questline - due to this (unsurprisingly) the Dawnguard aren't going to be the best of friends with you...

In terms of fixing it, I'm unsure... — Unsigned comment by (talk) at 21:24 on 25 August 2012

Bug (PC)[edit]

I seem to have ran into two bugs. I solved the puzzle but nothing happened. I exited the dungeon, ran resetquest DLC1VQ01 and it didn't reset the quest, it completed it. After one fast travel Serena was following me. /shrug 05:08, 24 August 2012 (UTC)

Lack of Information[edit]

I was thinking about rewriting this article. There is a lot more info that could be added to it and it seems whoever wrote was in a hurry to finish it. I would like gladly do it if no one minds.(Lordofmagicvoldemort (talk) 07:16, 31 January 2013 (GMT))

You're more than welcome to help out with any articles you think could use improvement. If you'd like, you can even put a {{wip}} notice at the top and work on it in your own personal sandbox (such as User:Lordofmagicvoldemort/Sandbox) if you're going to be doing a major revamp. — ABCface 08:39, 31 January 2013 (GMT)
Cool, I'll get started.(Lordofmagicvoldemort (talk) 20:47, 31 January 2013 (GMT))
I've given the article a lot more information. Feel free to make any tweaks to it if I've mised anything. I hope it's a lot more informative. (Lordofmagicvoldemort (talk) 09:56, 2 February 2013 (GMT))

Leveled Sword[edit]

(PS3 user) In the southern end of Dimhollow Crypt's initial chamber, there is an open draugr sarcophagus at the base of a stone stairwell. Inside is a leveled enchanted weapon. 95% of the time, this weapon is a sword, but there is a small chance to receive an enchanted iron mace, probably with a damage stamina effect. Also, occasionally the sarcophagus looks empty, but if you hover your pointer over the space, the name of the sword will appear and you will be able to "grab" it. Like most leveled loot, it is possible (though very, very unlikely) to find a daedric sword, but expect to get iron or steel even if your character is maxed out.MrC (talk) 14:14, 10 March 2013 (GMT)

Notes on Dimhollow Crypt, Vol 1 & 2[edit]

I've found vol 3 next to Vigilant Adalvald, but haven't seen previous volumes any help appreciated! Biffa. 16:00, 12 March 2013 (GMT)

They don't exist. Silence is GoldenBreak the Silence 16:05, 12 March 2013 (GMT)

I assume they are among the remains of all the burned books you can find in the ruined Hall of the Vigilents.(Lordofmagicvoldemort (talk) 03:07, 14 March 2013 (GMT))

vampire in the dawnguard[edit]

It may be worth noting that Serana has special dialogue if you're a vampire when you awaken her.

Vampire after the gate with wounded frostbite spider[edit]

This was not a master vampire for me, it was also not leveled correctly, 51 was my level and i had a nightmaster. Extremely hard fight, almost knocked the difficulty down. I've updated the main page to stated levelled as it was previously just master, not the case. If level 6 is suggested level for this i would be intrigued to see what they get, that ate alot of potions for me. Killerchronic (talk) 05:01, 21 April 2013 (GMT)

You're right, it's leveled and, in fact, it's a boss, which is why it was so hard. The suggested levels were based on minimum levels for the areas involved in the quest, so they may not be reflective of reality. It's more likely they will be when everything's leveled, but you can still get some pretty tough fights or unleveled monsters that make the suggested level a little inappropriate. In this case, the lowest-level leveled Vampire Boss you can get is level 14, well above the suggested level. Due to the way most bosses are done, even at later levels, you can get them well above your level. If I recall the calculations correctly, you would've gotten a Nightmaster Vampire anywhere from level 49 onwards. Robin Hood  (talk) 05:37, 21 April 2013 (GMT)

Bug (Possible) - Companion[edit]

Ran into this a few times on the PC version. When I enter the second section of Dimhollow with a companion and release Serana, Serana tells me that I have to dismiss my companion (not those words, but that's what she means) before she will do anything. When I dismiss my companion, she has no other dialogue options and won't join up for her escort mission. If I load the last autosave and dismiss my companion before entering her section, then everything proceeds normally. I'm not absolutely certain that this is a bug, but it has happened often enough in the same way that it's definitely fishy. Marstinson (talk) 00:33, 2 November 2013 (GMT)

Gate bug - moved from article[edit]

When you enter Dimhollow Cavern, the gate may not open, because the leveled vampire becomes hostile towards you and never opens the gate.

Moving this here because, based on the dungeon description here and in the place article, the vampire doesn't have to open the gate for you, it is opened by climbing the stone tower and pulling chain. It's been a long time since I did this quest, so if I'm wrong, feel free to let me know and/or add it back. --Xyzzy Talk 19:41, 26 January 2014 (GMT)

serana not following[edit]

I completed the puzzle and told serana to come with me and she said yes, but she just stayed there, I tried everything I could think of including reloading, please help! — Unsigned comment by (talk) at 14:16 on 30 July 2014

Watchful vampire[edit]

Not sure if this is a bug or not (interesting either way), but the vampire in dimhollow doing battle with the wounded frostbite spider (nightmaster for me)behaved the way certain shopkeepers do by keeping me in his line of sight. Im sneaking and invisible, but he follows me around the room and wont let anything obstruct his view of me. Strange... — Unsigned comment by (talk) at 03:26 on 26 August 2016 (UTC)

Yep. But he won't attack you if he can't see you, and he doesn't follow you into the next area so it is possible to sneak past him. --Morrolan (talk) 17:39, 29 August 2016 (UTC)

Invincible Vampire's Thrall[edit]

After progressing through the initial fight in cavern and killing every other enemy, there was one vampire's thrall that would not die, no matter how many people were attacking him and how many arrows I was pumping into him. His health bar wouldn't even show. For now, I ran past that room because continuing to fight him seemed pointless, but I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced this bug and if so how to fix it :)
