Change Your Face

How to Change Your Face

  1. Talk to a tender at any tavern to hear rumors of a strange character that can change your face.
  2. They’re for real, and only available in the Dawnguard DLC. Find them in Riften, in the underground tunnels below town called the Ratway.
  3. Travel to the Thieve’s Guild HQ called the Ragged Flaggon, a tavern located in the Ratway.
  4. Inside the tavern, look for a robed figure named Galathil. Speak to them, and eventually they’ll agree to sculpt your face.
  5. Having your face changed will cost 1000 gold.
  6. You will only be able to alter your face — nothing else. There are no options to change your race or gender.
  7. Vampires cannot have their faces changed, so beware!

Will this work in Dragonborn DLC? I don’t have Dawnguard.

Xbox 360, by the way.

Unfortunately, this feature is only included in the Dawnguard DLC.

I’m very happy with the extensions. But I have a doubt about changing the sex. If I decide to change my sex, can I change my name? Or it’s somethin like transexual? Sounds nice but weird.

This should work for anyone on Xbox 360. There’s an achievement for it and if Dawnguard is supposedly not available for 360 then why is that achievement there? Try it out and see if it works.
