      1. Serana will introduce herself first thing at the beginning of this quest. I suppose she does owe us an introduction, all things considered.
      2. At this point, you can really choose to extract a lot of information from this mysterious weirdo. If you have the patience, you can get Serana to talk a lot and really get a lot of background information on what is going on with the plot.
      3. Down the path, you will run into a few Gargoyle’s Brutes. Use your bow and arrow to take out the hostiles from a safe distance.
      4. Go down the hallway and open the wooden door. Move down the passage and up both flights of stairs. Activate the lever on your right.
      5. You will be hit with a fairly hefty wave of enemies here, so watch your stamina.
      6. Once the enemies have been dealt with, head over to the area that the large blue-ish light is shining on. You will learn Word of Power- Stamina, Drain Vitality.
      7. Immediately to your left, you will be able to open up another chest for some more goodies. Once those are pocketed, go through the door directly in front of you.
      8. Pull the chain to open the gate and head just up the snowy path for a load screen and a cutscene with Serana.
      9. Your task at this point is to take Serana home. Pull up your map and travel to Lower Steepfall Burrow.
      10. Go down the snowy path towards the lake. Swim across it and continue straight towards the beach to discover the Icewater Jetty.
      11. Take the boat across the huge body of water to Castle Volkihar.
      12. Approach the castle gate. It seems that Serana wants to part ways. She tells you to keep quiet and follow her lead once inside.
      13. Open the door to the Volkihar Keep for a load screen transition.
      14. It seems everyone is happy to have Serana back. Have a conversation with Harkon here to progress the story. At this point, you will have a choice as whether to accept Harkon’s gift or not.
      15. If you choose to accept Harkon’s gift, you will awake in a strange place and you will be trained by Harkon.
      16. Note the tutorial for changing between magic and Melee modes.
      17. Harkon will give you some more useful information about being a vampire. You fight for the dark side now. But on a lighter note, congratulations on finishing the Bloodline quest!

    How many bugs will the day one release of Skyrim Dawnguard for the XBOX 360 add-on have?

    First estimates? A whole lot. Bethesda doesn’t have a great track record fixing bugs, and people are already reporting all sorts of problems. Hopefully the major issues will be fixed soon!

    I guess there is different aohrpacpes to solve a problem, I will try this one now But what I currently do also works pretty well, I don’t have a video so I will try to explain in text. Gently tap fast on the twist motion while slowly move the lockpick around, once it starts moving you know you’re in the right spot. Make sure you only lightly tap on the twisting motion or the picks will break like toothpicks. Hope this helps those who can’t do it the listening way.

    Nov24 I have discovered that igilletnent real estate agents almost everywhere are getting set to FSBO Advertising and marketing. They are acknowledging that it’s in addition to placing a sign post in the front property. It’s really about building associations with these suppliers who at some time will become buyers. So, when you give your time and effort to serving these suppliers go it alone the Law associated with Reciprocity kicks in. Good blog post.
