39 new quests are added by the Dawnguard add-on, with both a main questline and multiple side and miscellaneous quests. There is no quest immediately added to the quest journal when you first install the add-on; the first quest in the main questline is started by hearing about vampire hunters from an NPC. Side quests can be started by interacting with certain NPCs at key times, or by interacting with new items (e.g. reading a new book). Some quests have radiant components, and some quests are repeatable.
