Being hated and hunted by polite society isn’t so great after all, is it vampires? In Skyrim, vampirism is a disease, a terrible one that ravages your body and eventually turns you into a monster without a steady supply of blood. That’s a hassle, so check out our quick and dirty instructions for defeating the disease and avoiding a future of immortal blood-drinking and pale skin. Stop moping in the dark, dump the coffin, and admire your reflection again — here’s how to cure yourself of vampirism.

With the vampire monkey off your back, continue your questing in Skyrim with our huge text and video walkthrough. For more tidbits of information, check out the cheats page.

Find everything you need to know about vampirism in the new Dawnguard DLC with our Dawnguard Vampire info and list of all new Vampire Lord perks.

How To Cure Vampirism

  1. If you’ve contracted the disease, you won’t become a vampire for three days. Until then, you can get rid of the disease with any common disease-curing potion.
  2. You can also use the Shrine to Talos outside Whiterun or Dragonsreach, activating the shrine will cure you of all diseases.
  3. Before speaking to anyone, make sure you’re no longer a Stage 4 vampire. Stage 4 vampires are attacked on sight, to avoid this, wait until night and drink the blood of a sleeping person. Even sleeping beggars will do. Just crouch/sneak and interact with a sleeping NPC to drink their blood.
  4. If you’re still having trouble drinking blood, remember that you have two useful abilities as a Stage 4 vampires — Embrace of Shadows, and Vampire Seduction. Embrace of Shadows turns you invisible, while Vampire Seduction will make an NPC calm and cease wanting to attack you.
  5. Once you’re a Stage 1 vampire, normal diseas cures will no longer work. You’ll need a better way.
  6. To begin your quest, speak with any Inn Keeper or Bartender about rumors. They’ll tell you that a man named Falion in Morthal is studying vampires.
  7. Find Morthal east of Fort Snowhawk. Once there, talk to Falion and he’ll discuss how to cure vampirism.
  8. He’ll tell you to get a Black Soul Gem. If you don’t have one, Falion will sell you one. Before being cured, you’ll need to fill the Black Soul Gem.
  9. To fill a Black Soul Gem, you’ll need to cast a Soul Trap spell on a human, then kill them. Any human will work, including bandits and enemies.
  10. You’ll need to obtain a Soul Trap spell, sold by any magic vendor. If you’re really desperate, try the College of Winterhold, or explore Whiterun to find a shop. If you don’t have high magic skills, just purchase a Soul Trap scroll. NOTE: The Mage for the Jarl of Whiterun, the Jarl’s Court Mage, should have a Soul Trap spell.
  11. With a filled Black Soul Gem, return to Falion and talk to him to complete the ritual. You’re now cured of vampirism!

If you’ve got the cure, but not the disease, here’s how you become a vampire.

I actually really enjoy being a vampire and don’t really treat it as an affliction, the perk benefits of feeding withdrawal are stupidly powerful. I wish you could actually spread the disease in this game by feeding on people.

Ed

The quest doesnt work if your a stage four vampire! becuase no one talks to you. someone please help. also i need to know if the vampire seduction spell will make Falion talk to you.

kingco

On November 12, 2011 at 9:07 pm

Need help with finding a soul trap spell or scroll? No magic vendors in whiterun and the one i could talk to at the college didnt have a scroll or book.

rsr2

On November 12, 2011 at 9:24 pm

@ Cozy, you are going to have to feed on someone in order to get rid of Stage 4. After you get that, you can get the quest and easily get it done by going to a cave and killing a bandit.

@ Kingco, Fast Travel to Dragonsreach. When you go inside go to the room on the right where the alchemy table is and talk the NPC Named Forengar Secret-Fire. I bought my book from him for 263 Gold.

Also this guide is nice. I really didn’t like the vampirism but I am sure I will enjoy it later on in the game.

I have completed “Meet Falion at dawn” but the next “Speak to Falion” when i do that it doesn’t happen anything.
Any ideas what to do to get cured?

After i get the filled soul gem and speak to Falion he asks me to meet him at dawn, upon which he just starts attacking me? Any ideas?

Russia Persona

On November 13, 2011 at 8:28 am

alright this works! but i found out that if you’re in stage fourand you have a hierling following you, dont talk to him/her. They’ll immediatly try and kill you. And then you’ll have no friends!

Kurt Munro

On November 13, 2011 at 9:52 am

This is BS. I have to wait for Falion to be at his stupid point, and by waiting it makes me Stage 4 and he just attacks me, even though I spoke to him 5 minutes earlier about the Black Soul Gem.

Bull GUI doesn’t give you any info about anything. Step back from Oblivion.

Travis Yarwood

On November 13, 2011 at 10:01 am

Everyone Calm down! If your on stage 4 of a vampireism everyone will go after you(including him) and try kill you..you need to feed on someone before you go..which is a mission but i done it!
i have a problem..i met him at dawn and he tried to kill me..ive just explained why now i have to talk to him again? i try to and he wont giv eme any other option than to ask about his poxy shop!
Someone Help Please!

Kurt Munro

On November 13, 2011 at 10:06 am

I found that The Mace of Molag Bal recharges a soul gem, so if you have that weapon charged it might work too, instead of travelling to buy the spell.

Kurt Munro

On November 13, 2011 at 10:28 am

Here’s some help. Type this into the console (access with key left of 1):

prid 0001aa5e (press return)
moveto player (press return)

That will move Falion to your position, so you don’t have to wait for him to leave his house.

player.moveto 0001aa5e – will move you to Falion’s position.

Olav

On November 13, 2011 at 11:45 am

this is just retarded Embrace of shadow has no effect at all, i use it far from house out range for anyone to possibly see me, and they still come running after me even though am like a million miles away from the house, and see straight through the embrace, wouldn’t think its even possible to get out of stage 4

Jerry

On November 13, 2011 at 12:17 pm

Okay, ive done everything, I got the black soul gem, filled it by killing a bandit, went to talk to Falio, he told me to meet him at dawn in the marsh, I wait in the shrine in the marsh til dawn, he shows up, but dosent give me any options other than his 3 basic ones… Wtf Is going on? Is there a glitch, or did I miss something?

brad sloan

On November 13, 2011 at 1:27 pm

the shrine of talios does all.

Halee

On November 13, 2011 at 1:52 pm

My vampire powers wont work. I egupied them like i would any spell but nothing happends. Idk what to do becouse I cant feed due to this. And ive always been good at sneaking but no matter how far away I am or hiden people seem to see me no matter what.

Sparticus

On November 13, 2011 at 3:10 pm

I was on day 2 and i tried a disease-curing potion and it did not work. i tried the Shrine to Talos outside Whiterun, this to did not work…. so i just went to the inn and started the Quest with Falion which work… if your a stage 4 vampire out side this town there is a house across the bridge just before you get to the marsh the door is lock and easy to pick, just feed on them a few times while doing the quest for Falion… this helped out alot!! thanks

Beefbucket

On November 13, 2011 at 3:20 pm

There does seem to be a glitch with him performing the ceremony…

once he meets me at the marsh… he does nothing, just stands there.

This is complete bull… I cannot do anything….

Please fix now.

Sparticus

On November 13, 2011 at 3:22 pm

Morthal is the name of the town i think…. just get threw the town hide in the marsh wait till your hidden then sneak back that that house no guards are out that way… also when your looking for someone to kill go into the marsh there are bandits out there just asking for their soul to be taken…

Sparticus

On November 13, 2011 at 3:23 pm

is it dusk??

Alex

On November 13, 2011 at 3:27 pm

When he talks about the black marsh, where exactly do you meet him?

James the Khajiit

On November 13, 2011 at 3:35 pm

@Halee
To use your powers, you have to use the same button as your Shouts.

I am currently in the process of curing stage 4 vampirism myself. I’m keeping optimistic about maintaining my life as a vampire, since I have a tenant living in my house in Whiterun whom I’ll feed of off.

What I did to initially find a victim in stage 4 was use the invisibility and picklock into someones house. If you have no picklocks, try an inn.

im at stage 1 of vampirism and i love it
besides i always get hunted by assassins so guess thats good

Enki

On November 13, 2011 at 5:18 pm

FYI need to be stage one vamp for it to work. I met him there at 330 and then he did some thing diffrent.. this was after my failed attempts and going back to a saved game few times trying to figure out what to do

Julia Labo

On November 13, 2011 at 6:09 pm

So the embracing the shadows spell didn’t work for me, but I still managed to feed. (Had to take all my armor and weapons off to sneak into the guy’s house). Then I followed this guide. The only thing that I had trouble with was the fact that when you use the soul capture spell it puts it in the smallest soul capture gem you have on you, so you have to drop all the others first. Just a heads-up :-)

Helpfulgamer

On November 13, 2011 at 8:33 pm

To everyone having trouble with the actual ceremony:
Just quit and reload a save from b4 the quest, that will probably fix it

To people who don’t know what stage they are:
Go to the active effects menu in magic and look at your resistance to fire, poison, etc. that deals with vampirism. if its’ 25%, ur level 1. if its 50%, ur level 2, and etc.

To people who can’t get out of stage 4:
If you’re part of a faction like the dark brotherhood or the theives guild go there and feed off of them, they won’t be hostile

Eric

On November 13, 2011 at 8:38 pm

Just like to add that Falion will tell you to meet him at some circle of worship at Dawn. You are not cured right away, you have to meet him at the circle and at Dawn. What sucks is I didn’t know I had to feed and so I waited at his house until 4:00 AM. His kid freaks out Falion chases me around so I ran to the circle and let him kill me thinking that was part of the ritual. Because he does suggest he will do something like that. Anyway, long story short, feed, feed and then feed again before doing the ritual. Now, I need to go back in time because I did not know I needed to suck blood. Vampirism is turning out to be the worst part of the game.

Jonkotemmer

On November 13, 2011 at 9:50 pm

I know from stories about being a vamp in oblivion i dont want that.. so when i (by mistake) ate vampire dust & became a vampire the first i did was go online and look for the cure.. (the elder scrolls should have internet:D)

anyway.. is it just me or does your eye colour change when you become a vampire.. mine are black now & where blue.. i cured being a vampire.. but my eyes are still black

gfsdhsdh

On November 14, 2011 at 3:05 am

Dont have enough magic to cast soul trap so where can I find a soul trap scroll then? Hate being stuck as vampire.

Blixa Bargeld

On November 14, 2011 at 3:14 am

There’s another way… Much easier way. But not without consequences.
You can become a werewolf. This will cure you of all stages of vampirism and all it’s symptoms. This will also make you immune to all further diseases and infections. You can become a werewolf after completing a Companions’ quest in Underforge in Whiterun.
So if you are having trouble finding the pesky Scroll of Soul Trap like I did, this is a very easy way. Cheers.

Go West of the western watchtower to fort greymoore, kill everyone and go back at night and there will be a sleeping maid to feed.

seriosuly, it sounds like most of the above posters are either retarded or have never learned how to read.

the guide works 100% if you actually read it and follow what you’re told to do in game.

SkyVamp

On November 14, 2011 at 10:07 am

You can buy soul trap cheaply off of Falion himself and a black soul gem can be found next to the arcane enchanter in the same room as the master vampire during the first compaions quest.

Kevin Thielenhaus

Everyone in need of the Soul Trap spell — Check it!

The Mage for the Jarl of Whiterun, in the castle, should have a Soul Trap spell.

@Really Frustrated Gamer: Go West of the western watchtower to fort greymoore, kill everyone and go back at night and there will be a sleeping maid to feed. NOT TRUE, done that more than once bud no maid is anywhere….FAIL

@dumb_ass_players: seriosuly, it sounds like most of the above posters are either retarded or have never learned how to read.

NO ONE IN THIS “SO CALL” GUIDE HAS NEVER DESCRIBE – WHERE, HOW AND WHEN CAN NPC BE FOUND TO BE SLEEPING TO DRING BLOOD FROM HIM (so someone can continue vampirism cure quest) ….SIMPLE BUT COMPLICATED, it seems, because NO ONE HERE KNOWS………

On November 14, 2011 at 2:37 pm

Quest worked fine for me. Theres a mining camp near marthol you can use to feed. Just wait till like three am, use embrace of shadows and munch on someone sleeping in one of the tents. Do it like three times just to be extra safe. (no idea if more than once makes a difference). Use a weapon with soul trap, it’s easier than the spell and handy to have anyway. Try sticking all but your black gem in a container somewheres so the soul goes into the gem you need it to. After that just do what he says. Hope that helps anyone havin troubles

sasdas

On November 14, 2011 at 2:44 pm

for those of you having problems after you talk to him at dawn and he does not continue the ritual, use these console commands

rid 0001aa5e (press return)
moveto player (press return)

he will spawn in front of you so make sure your in the middle of the place and he will then say good your here and continue with the quest.

Oh hey, I dont know if any of you found this out, but there is a shine to Talos that cures it In whiterun its easy to spot.((before 4th stage of vampire Stages)) And its by the guy Who keeps Screeming about Talos, cant miss it :D

Maxim

On November 14, 2011 at 8:44 pm

Also, you dont have to use console command to put him in circle (my console doesnt work at all for some reason). Just attack the dude, run to the circle and then put your weapons down so he stop attacking you. He will begind the ritual right after.

WHAT to DO?!?

Im stage 4 – Cant go any near ppl or they “see me through walls” and attack me straigt away.

I would like to know – STEP FOR STEP…!!
How do i go near without beeing discovered?
And presice WHEN do i use my “power” (invisible and “charm”)
noone write how to do the “go near” – “Charm” – “Drink blod” ??

..and I must be extreamly tiered, since i dont get any detailed help out of reading this thread!?!

Hushy

On November 16, 2011 at 1:29 am

I’ve read all the comments on this, and not a single one of them solves my problem. I obtained the Black Soul gem from him – charged it with my soul tap weapon, and went back to him. But although I say to him that I have a black soul gem, he says its empty. I checked and it was a lesser soul. So I bought another like 600g, and trapped a greater soul in it. Went back, and he still says the same: That it’s empty. Tried in all stages of vampirism(except 4th ofc).

Anyone tried a similar glitch, or do I do something wrong at some point?

Omid

On November 16, 2011 at 2:50 am

Hi guys, for those who have problem with starting the ritual by Falion. you should push him toward the ritual. when you push him toward the circle he would move automatically to give you space as programmed in the game. but you use this trick to move him toward the circle. once he’s near the circle you can go in the center of the circle and ask him to start the conversation. Everything’s Done!

* Hope Bethesda soon patch this bug as he stays far from circle and you can’t reach him to start the ritual.

Lilith

On November 16, 2011 at 5:40 am

I’ve been attack by Alva from the village of morthal and I’ve become a vampire?! I didn’t even know she was a vamp! anyway I went directly to buy a potion to cure myself and it didn’t work, I also went to the talos shrine and it didn’t work. Pisses me off i didn’t want to become a vampire for now. I’m doing the dark brotherhood quests and I can’t get anywhere without someone trying to kill me ! has that happen to anyone?

Captain Arf

On November 16, 2011 at 8:17 am

For everyone whos a stage 4 vampire and who has joined the companions, they won’t attack you and they will protect you from the guards and i think that if you become a werewolf you will no longer be a vampire so try it out, i haven’t yet and it’s just a theory but it might work

Fredrik

On November 16, 2011 at 10:09 am

I just rushed in to Whiterun, bit one of the patients in the temple of whatever and rushed out. The invisibilty thing is worthless.. Im going to do the ritual now, I hope it works.

Jim

On November 16, 2011 at 1:50 pm

I ing hate vampirism in this game. They should remove it, or at least make it easier to get rid of. The simplest solution would be to make feeding easier. Feeding on people either pisses off the guards and they try to murder you or if you don’t feed they try to kill you anyway after becoming a level 4 vampire. Bethesda please fix this, it’s ruining my skyrim experience. I’m actually considering starting a new character, as I can’t deal with this nonsense anymore.

vKillerDoughBoy

On November 16, 2011 at 3:39 pm

I was really excited for a solution when I read this, but I’m a stage 4 vampire and even this guy whose supposed to help me is attacking me! I don’t understand what I’m supposed to do!

As stage 4, unepuip all armor , use invisible power to sneak up a sleeping person and feed. Worked for me. Good luck

Man named sou

On November 16, 2011 at 10:44 pm

Well unepuip everything and use Embrace the Shadows power. I went to Kynesgrove to feed.

On November 17, 2011 at 8:45 am

I have a glitch. Falion doesn’t cure me, he just walks away! And that thing in Whiterun doesn’t work. It says that it cured me, but that isn’t true!I still have red eyes and vampire spells.

Chaosspawn

On November 17, 2011 at 2:03 pm

THE ONLY LASTING CURE FOR VAMPIRISM IS LYCANTHROPY!
Go to Whiterun and do a couple fetch/kill quests (I think 3)
They will ask to meet you in the Underforge where they will give you wolf blood and Vampirism is cured. You can then keep or cure the lycanthropy, but there are no down sides to it until you choose to transform to wolf form.

Jason

On November 17, 2011 at 2:47 pm

Thanks to this guide I don’t have to start all over again, I hate vampires lol. I have a huge problem trying to get Falion to preform the ritual. There was a dragon attacking the area right as he showed up. So I had to battle with the dragon and kill it in order to start the ritual. It was pissing me off so damn much.

Marty

On November 17, 2011 at 8:17 pm

if you have a problem, you’re either not thinking things through or not reading the guide.

*** STAGE 4 CURE ***
You know your stage 4 when everyone starts attacking you and you have the extra powers.

First – Head to one of the two farms just outside Whiterun to the east of the stables.

Stand outside door… ask any companions to “wait here”
Strip off armour weapons
Use Embrace Vampire power and sneak
Pick Door
Walk up to farmer or wife on sleeping
They will start to wake up and as they get up stop sneaking and use the seduction power
They will then climb back into bed and you will have the option of selecting them and then select the feed option
feed as many times as you like then run for it if a guard comes in

If you have already talked to Falion (which is likely as he assumes you have met him after the first dawn that passes)…he would have returned to his home and you can no longer talk to him about the cure or the gem..

Simply head back to the shrine wait the amount of hours till about 12am then go forward +1 hour until he appears usually around 2am

Talk to him.. he should not attack you since you fed on the farmer he will conduct the ritual and you are cured.

My character’s skin turn dark as redguard when he became a vampire.
i hav no idea how to deal with this,so I’ve try “showracemenu” and creating my character face again [I cant just change skin colour bcus it change only the body,his face's still dark...] and use console command set my character skills and attribute bcus when i want to create a new face i need to choose race, this’ll rollback all of skills and attributes. It looks cool at first, but when I have to feed on someone….I CANT!! there’s no feed choice after I press my E botton
-___- and Vampire Sight skill’s gone too……. I cant find it in my spell list

if someone know how to fix this, please tell me [thx for reading]

well i had a mask in my inventory. Thank God but if you have a mask on while your a stage 4 vampire people will still talk to you and you can still get quests. The masks have to cover the front and back of face and atleast have to end at the shoulders.

If you’re having trouble getting out of Stage 4 Vampire, here is a good strategy. To the northeast of Morthal, at the entrance-ish of the marsh, there is a cave called “Movarth’s Lair.” It’s filled with vampires (irrelevant), but if you kill everything in the cave, you’ll find a bed. Sleep there until it’s late into the night (so everyone will be asleep). Then travel back to Morthal, to that house across the bridge and beside the lumbar workshop. Take off all your armor, use your “Embrace the Shadows” power, all while in sneak mode. Enter the house, a man and woman should be asleep. Drink their blood, and be on your merry way. Good luck everyone!

On November 21, 2011 at 6:44 am

Some people have said this is bugged and Falion just stands a few meters away from the summonig circle, only offering 3 basic dialog options instead of performing the ritual.

TO FIX THIS YOURSELF –

Use unrelenting force to push him into the circle. This will make him hostile, so then just knock him out with your weapon and when he stands he will be unhostile. Keep repeating this until you get him in the center on the summoning circle. That is enough to trigger the sequence.

It worked for me anyway.

The shrine to talos is just below the stairs to Dragonsreach, right next to the guy who is preaching. If you are going down the stairs from dragonsreach and you are at the bottom you should be staring at a big dead tree, look to your left there will be a statue of a guy with a sword and right in front of it a smaller shrine about half the size of a person, click that. Hope this helps just wish it wasn’t so far down in the comments

For people stuck on Level 4 Vampire:

Every time you feed on someone you either go back to Level 1 or go down a level (can’t remember which), once you’re back to Level 1 just make sure you feed on one person every night and you’ll be fine. That’s if you want to stay a vampire.

When you’re Level 4 and you need to feed, right outside of Windhelm there’s a couple of nice little farm houses that only have one or two people living in them. Fast travel just outside of Windhelm from about midnight to 3am. Walk right inside (the doors are usually unlocked) and once you’re in turn on Vampire Seduction and the people shouldn’t wake up. If they’re getting up when you walk in they should lay down and go back to sleep. Drink their blood and NPC’s no longer attack you.

After that just stay on a healthy one farmer a night diet to avoid going Level 4 again. If you want to completely cure your vampirism follow the nice guide GameFront has provided us with and make sure you’re a Level 1 vampire through the duration of it.

When you get to the ritual circle, if Falion is outside of the circle just push him into it and stand in the center and talk to him. After he cures you go to the Companions and go through their quests to become a Werewolf. It’s much better than being a vampire, as you transform at will. So if you don’t want to go wolf you dont have to. Then you’re permanently cured from vampirism as well as all other diseases.

Hope this helps

I’m stuck as a stage 4 vampire and I CAN’T FEED. I have sneak in the 70′s and several pieces of sneak gear on. I’m not being detected. I can jump on the heads of sleeping people and they don’t wake up. My issue is, when I go to feed, all it does is open the inventory of the sleeping person. I was able to feed normally at stage 1, 2 & 3, but I was out running a few quests and didn’t want to hassle with returning to feed until I was done with the quests. I never anticipated that once I hit stage 4 I’d not be able to feed anymore. I can’t do the quest for the cure because I’m attacked on sight, and I didn’t really want to be cured. I just want to be able to talk to people again and sell this crap I’ve been carrying around for days. I’ve tried feeding on dozens of different sleeping people in different towns. Every one is the same. It just opens the inventory to pickpocket and does NOT pop up the question asking if I want to feed. No matter what I do, it won’t work. I have hours into this save and I really don’t want to have to lose all that due to a ridiculous bug. Anyone know how to remove vampirism with the console?

This is for everyone who is at stage 4 vampirism.

I just spent the past 8+ hours traveling all over the map looking for houses to feed from. It got to the point where I just said F it and started killing everyone I could in every house I could get to. Every single time they woke up the moment I moved after entering the house and it frustrated me to no end because isn’t that what the Embrace is supposed to help out with?

Then I read a comment on this thread about removing all your clothes and weapons and IT WORKS. Strip down till you can’t remove anything else and go to Morthal and to the north of the town you fill find a watermill and a single house across the river (Jorgen and Lomi). If you take everything off you’ll be able to FINALLY feed and get your ass in gear on the quest to cure the vampirism.

As Skree000 mentioned,

——————–
Open console with ~

setstage 000eafd5 10
——————–

Many folks keep saying “just hit pickpocket and feed”, most of that are stage 4 vampires understand this much already, but the game itself still has a bug here n there. Not sure what triggers it, but stage 4 works fine for the most part. If you play in it moreso than not, you’re more likely to run into the glitch of not seeing the “feed” option and it just goes straight into viewing the person’s inventory.
This curing method works effortlessly and will save about 10 hours of headache wondering why you don’t see the feed option when you should. After typing in the cure code, immediately head to your favorite vampire cave and voila. No resetting and losing all the hard work.
Saved me from having to restart a good 20 hours logged into a character. Good luck n happy bloodtivities.

On November 23, 2011 at 11:18 pm

You can cure your vampirism by drinking werewolf blood aswell (don’t want to spoil how you get that). But in return you become a werewolf. It’s not really a bad thing as the only downfall to lycanthropy is that you can no longer become well rested , everything else is a nice little perk unlike with vampirism.

bdb

On November 24, 2011 at 3:34 am

best place to find sleeping persons is either the rebellion camps or empire camps after you have killed everyone. There will be the leader left because you cant kill him or her and there will also be no one that can guard them while they sleep. also they are usually found in remote areas so not much chance of running into others

If you can’t cast soul trap spell, can’t find a scroll… Learn how to enchant weapons…
If you’re already a stage 1 vamp, cure disease potions and shrines will NOT CURE YOU.
Have to do that BEFORE the first three days are up. After clearing a vamp dungeon, check the current affects tab on the mage page, stamina drain = vamp disease. If you don’t want to become a vamp again, CURE NOW. After the first three days are up, you’re forked and have to learn to deal with it or follow the quest to dispell it.
For those who can’t feed while a vamp…. Learn how to play for cryin out loud.
Using console commands is fine for pc’rs.. But how about a glitch fix for console gamers?
Console command = cheating, go back to call of duty or some other sht game if you can’t play this withou cheating.
Can’t find anyone to feed off? Holy crap people…. Do yourself (and the forums) a favour, and sell your game for a box of Kleenex
Your tag along will only sleep at night, when other npc’s should be sleeping

I just love reading these posts, all the whiners whom can’t figure sht out on their own crying that they can’t cast a spell cause they have no mana help me!!! Waaahaaahaaa

I also found a way to fill the soul gem with a soul. You can find a bow in Folgrunthur that fills a soul gem with a soul. Folgrunther can be found in the swamps between Morthal and Solitude.

I enchanted an elven bow after smithing it to exquisite.
Used a greater gem, filled with a greater that I found in a chest.
Set the chant for trap within 2 seconds of death, and it’ll give close to 250 uses.

Learn to use enchantments and the game is easier

On November 24, 2011 at 2:28 pm

For those playing the 360 version (may work on the PS3, too) and Falion does not come into the circle to perform the ritual. You will have to get behind Falion and push him into the circle. It is easier if you walk into him instead of running because you have the tendency to run around stationary objects. Once he is in the circle, stand in the center and he will automatically start the ceremony.

@dumb_ass_players There’s a glitch in the game that keeps Falion from entering the Marsh Shrine Circle, so no, just reading and following these instructions does not always work.

Just for shts n giggles, I did the quest to cure vamp last night. Sure enough, bugger didn’t enter the circle. I pulled my dagger, entered block stance and pushed him… Too bad I accidentally hit him once, and of all the worst time for mehrune’s razor to proc, I killed the bugger. Reloaded, unequipped weapon, and equipped a shield and did it again.

A way to soul trap is to conjure a weapon because if you have your skill upgraded enough getting a kill with a conjured weapon automatically soul traps it.

On November 26, 2011 at 3:46 pm

How to NEVER get Vampirism:

1) ALWAYS carry at least (1) potion of Cure Disease, available from Arcadia’s Cauldron in Whiterun for ~300g (right next to Belethor’s General Goods). Don’t use it for any other diseases (they’re not as serious). Preferably carry 2 or 3 of these things

2) After fighting vampires, ALWAYS check your status (go to character menu, Magic, Active Effects) to see if you have Sanguinaire Vampiris or whatever. Don’t check after you fight EVERY vampire, check after you’re done the dungeon, have decided that you’ll be avoiding vampires like the plague for a while, or until almost 3 days have passed.

3) If you have the disease, drink the potion. Voila! I have never even gotten to Stage 1 Vampirism by following these three simple steps. If you think ~300g for a Cure Disease potion is expensive, just wait until Falion tries to sell you the Black Soul Gem (it’s pretty rare, too) you need to get red of Stage 1+ Vampirism for 800g!

ive been feeding on the sleeping guardians lol

Larry

On November 27, 2011 at 5:29 pm

I had alot of trouble with this at first, after reading through a few different threads around the net, I got it to work on PS3….
1. Fast travel to just outside Morthal ( I went to Morvarth’s Lair)
2. Unequip any armor and weapons (I’m talkin run in your underwear)
3. Wait untill around 2-3 am and break into the first house on the right in front of the bridge in Morthal (will be ) using the invisibility power while sneeking. once inside, sneek over to the sleeping homeowners and “activate” them, not talking!! You should get a feed option, feed at least 4 times to be sure, then sneek out. Once you feed, you will be fine to walk amongst the townfolk with no problems.
5. Go to the local Inn and ask about rumors, and that will start the quest to heal you.
6. Go to Failon during normal hours (8-8) making sure you don’t need to feed, if for some reason you don’t make it in time, repeat steps 2-4 as needed.
7. Failon offers the gem and “Spell Tome:Soul trap” for around 236.
8. This next part is important, when you go out to capture a soul, be sure the only soul gem you are carrying is the Black soul gem you purchased for this purpose.
9. I went to an old mine where I know enemies are, because I hadn’t cleared them yet, cast the soul trap spell on him and beat the crap out of him (mind you, health, stamina and magik recover when your not in sunlight, I recommend fighting at night)
10. Take the full soul gem back to Falion during the day, while your well fed.
11. Go to where you initially fast travled (Morvarth’s Lair) and wait untill about 2 am, go to the “Jorgen and Lami’s House) Feed and meet Failon around 3:45am at the quest marker. Once it says you met, now talk, unequip any weapons and hit Failon barehanded once and run into the middle of the ritual circle, once he gets in there with you, put your hands down as to surrender and stop fight, once he stops fighting you, talk to him, and you should be able to start the ritual.
I managed to do this all while a dragon was flying over me and attacking Morthal, so I KNOW it’s possible, LOL. Good luck guys, and happy hunting

Larry

On November 27, 2011 at 5:31 pm

EDIT::::: Step 3 Wait untill around 2-3 am and break into the first house on the right in front of the bridge in Morthal (will be Jorgen and Lami’s House ) using the invisibility power while sneeking. once inside, sneek over to the sleeping homeowners and “activate” them, not talking!!

there is another way to cure it if you drink the blood of a warewolf you turn into one and cancels out bein a vampire

but im not sure if you can cure being a warewolf a second time i know you can get multi witch heads so worth a try i guess.

On November 27, 2011 at 7:52 pm

wow, how do you people not know how to find a person sleeping?? You go into someones house late at night and they are sleeping!!!!! Don’t go into a house in a town, go to like a farm area outside of a town! if ur sneak is bad make sure to unequip all your armor!

Aaron

On November 27, 2011 at 8:18 pm

I would also like to add if you having trouble getting into fal’s house i.e always locked

1. Remember to feed every night to keep the disease from progressing there always an orc in the inn u can feed on just just press e whilst hes asleep and feed easy.
2. Become thane by like always helpng the people of the town when i got this quest it said 1/3 carnt remember first one but the other two as i found it hard to find people to help is the women in the potion shop wants a book a simple pick up in another city. The other is a guy called benor who partols around the town speack to him have a fist fight when quest complete and you can always ask him to acompany you as well for quests.
3. after becoming thane go back to the fal’s house and its unlocked go in and speack to him.

uesp . net will explain how to catch Sanguinare Vampiris (the vampire disease) and how to cure it including the suggestion (with instructions) to turn into a werewolf if you would like.

if you want a console command to remove vampirism try setstage 000eafd5 10. you will apparently look different after this command but vampirism will be gone.

Side note: if you want to undo things like eye and skin colour changes that happens when your a vamp you can do this with the console command: showracemenu and then just changing how you look to how you like. (do NOT use this if you are still a vampire, you wont be able to feed again if you change your race.)

Shadow_mark

On November 30, 2011 at 8:31 am

@ angry werevamp

On your active effects page, does it actually list the sanguine disease? Or, I suppose at this point, do you have the vampire spells and powers?
After having cured vamp, and going through most of the other quests, I’m doing the companion quest line, and am also a werewolf, though I’ve not had any issue with contracting sanguine again

However Im doing a whiterun mission and I have Falkas with me as a temporary companion for the mission. Problem is he cannot be commanded or dismissed. If i go back to town I am Kill on sight. If I go to an inn, they attack me and he slaughters everyone.
Also alas the set stage command doesn’t work either.

Any other ideas peeps please?

Saji

On December 4, 2011 at 1:19 pm

This wasn’t so bad and worked flawlessly for me on XBOX once I figured out how it all worked.

I faced several odd problems to begin with. I pursued the quest line to meet with Falion. However traveling at night to maintain stamina left his door locked. Likewise I was blood starved so the guards attacked. Luckily Ive been leveling sneak so avoiding them and hiding from them was no problem, but I had no lock picks… This became even bigger of a problem later as I realized I could appease my assailants by drinking blood of sleeping people to become fed and no starved. Then what did I hear but the ominous roar of an approaching dragon… sheesh what else can happen. I waited and hid trying to get a few shots off at the beast but mostly trying to avoid guards and attempting to get them to do my dirty work. It was a hopeless endeavor. Killing the dragon was not a problem but getting it land somewhere where I wouldn’t be raped by the guards wasn’t. I gave up on the soul and reloaded to an earlier time in hopes that the dragon wouldn’t spawn. It didn’t.

So off to find lock picks, since I couldn’t very well waltz into a trade store and buy them I had to get creative. I snuck to the inn at night walked into the door and immediately cast the invisibility power from vampire infection. I learned the hard way that opening a door actually dissipates the spell and it is 1 cast per day :(

So invisible in the inn i hoped for someone to go to sleep but they were too riled up from the vampire that walked in the front door and disappeared, or maybe having too much fun drinking the night away. I waited around in a corner until they calmed and picked pockets to find exactly 3 lock picks… I better make these count I thought to myself.

I kamikazeed out the front door after agro-ing the bartender while pickpocketing and getting greedy. Sprinted (it was still night) out into the marsh and toggled sneak for a while attempting to avoid any more problems. I lost the band of guards, bards, drunks, and the occasional mud crab. I snuck back watching the time, I had to get this right. At around 4am I hit the small house right outside of town, fed off the inhabitants and managed to find another lockpick in their pockets. I walked out the front door and found peace. I waited a few hours to make sure Falion was awake before barging in with umpteen thousand questions. In the meantime someone had hired a thug to beat me up. He followed me un-noticed to Falions abode and entered behind me as I began a conversation with Falion. After Falions opening words I quit the dialog before I was beat to death by the thug and took him out forgetting to use soul trap to fill the already acquired black soul gem :(

I talked to him and got the info needed. Now off to fill the gem, but first unload some goods to Falion so I don’t risk over encumbering myself. Now I needed a plan. Out in the marsh safe again I checked my map and saved progress. I looked for the nearest cave, structure, anything that may have humanoids dwelling within it. Within an in game half hour there is a mining colony. I made the trek to find that I was not allowed to kill the humanoids there.. darn it, but I could feed up so I did.

I decided to wander around until I found something, and luckily down the road I did. A band of bandits had ambushed a traveling carriage. I dispatched the assailants and filled my gem.

Back to the mining camp to feed once more I traveled back to Falion to let him know of my success. We agreed to meet at the circle at dawn. I traveled there and made a dry run to figure out my timing. I needed to be there and fed when Falion was there and have enough time left to wait in case he took his time.

Back to the mining camp for a free feed at 3:15, back to the circle for 4:00. Wait no Falion! Then I heard it, someone was fighting in the marsh, whatever was attacking this poor soul had reduced him to submission. Oh no! Could this be Falion? I cant let him die, he is the only one who can help me! I followed his voice and sure enough he had angered a mudcrab and is apparently not the best fighter. I dropped the crab in one fell swat from my offhand Ebony Sword(Epic). Falion continued to his marker. I spoke with him, but low and behold he only had his 3 default options… Darn-it all to Oblivion!

I luckily saved right before just in case. I decided to experiment, I waited 1 hour, from 4:30 to 5:30. He shifted places and was now primed to help me! He performed the ritual and now I’m all clean!

In summary: There is a convenient mining camp not far from the circle with easy to suck humanoids sleeping in open tents. If you need a soul down the road were bandits but they may not be there for everyone. Make sure you are fed before meeting Falion at the circle. I tried him between 4:15 and 4:30 but not ready for the ritual, I waited 1 hour till 5:30 and he was then ready. So try that if you are having problems getting him to acknowledge your problem. Save a lot and be careful with your timings.

I have problem with this quest (playing on PS3). I have followed all steps of the quest, turn up on the ritual circle (well fed) however Failon didn’t turn up… Is this a bug for PS3? Any help will be appreciated…

On December 6, 2011 at 8:09 pm

I’m playing on PS3. I am stuck as a vampire. I’ve started both routes to be cured but now am stuck.

Option 1: get the filled black soul gem for Falian and meet at dawn for the ritual. Done. Went to meet at dawn and missed him. Now, I can’t do the ritual (though he is there at dawn every day) and I can restart the quest.

Option 2: contract Lycanthropy. I started the Companions quest but didn’t get very far. I got to “follow Farkas to your quarters” and I did. But I stupidly fed on someone sleeping while he was still there and saw me. Chaos broke out. I fled. Now when I go back, it’s still on “follow Farkas…” but going to him, I can only speak to him and he doesn’t lead me to my quarters. Now I’m stuck as a vamp.

There are a few other bugs/glitches I’ve noticed too. For instance, Lydia got stuck in a doorway and it took me forever to get her out.

Im playing on PS3. I show up to Falion with a Filled Black soul gem. I leave and come back but he never tries to sell me one. He tells me to bring a black soul gem filled, yet the white words don’t come on the screen. So it never goes into effect that I talked to him. What do I DO??

I found out what to do. Just turn your system off, then reload your previous save not, the current one. Finally Falion will help you out!!

On December 7, 2011 at 2:18 pm

His has been a huge pain for me. Took forever to find someone who was asleep then I got attacked by assassins during the ritual which broke the quest for me. The best thing to do is to either revert to a previous save or use the console commands mentioned above.

takin off all ur armor would reduce the noise that u make when u sneak into someones house and also make sure that no one can see you goin into there house as well when your goin to feed on there blood

Quite cheating,and crying about it!,your just lucky this is not an online game,because i would hunt you down and eat you myself!! to my fellow REAL GAMMERS:WOW! did’nt see this becomming such a problem? people have NO CLUE what else is instore for those who thought this was a “simple game”..LMFAO this is only the start of a KICK ASS GAME!!!

so i did everything gave failon my gem.. waited forever to meet with him almost an hour.. and he just never shows up.. ever.. reloaded tried again sans starting the whole rising dawn quest over. WTF why doesnt he show up this is the 3rd day ive been dealing with this stupid vampire and im doing everything right why isnt the game cooperating! seriously about 5 hours of just trying to get rid of this disease im getting really frustrated

skyrim_nord

On December 11, 2011 at 10:41 am

I made sure I fed on people near bridge before ritual. However he was stuck. Get a shield and push him toward ritual circle. Eventually he gives the option to start. Very annoying.

jeremy_kk

On December 11, 2011 at 1:15 pm

Honestly without this I would be screwed, In oblivion i had a guy at level 46 and he became a vampire and the autosave saved in skingrad while it was pure daylight out. I accidentally deleted my save so I was condemned to the autosave in the sun, long story short I got F***ed and had to restart my file, and now the same thing happened in skyrim and it killed my ambitions of playing until I read this. SO THANK YOU!!! F Vampires, Companions all the way!!

thedude

On December 11, 2011 at 9:27 pm

I normally wouldn’t post a comment on this but I have never been so pissed off in my life at a video game. I realize there are hundreds of comments on this issue but I basically used the method of taking of all gear to feed then travelled to the circle. Before dawn I killed the mudcrab so there would be nothing preventing falion from reaching the circle, I stood on the back side of the circle and waited until 6am. Boom, goes the dynamite, good luck to you all!

synthetiqk

On December 12, 2011 at 12:49 am

Another way to cure vampirism is to simply join the companions and drink Werewolf blood when you get the quest and if you don’t want to be a werewolf just cure it later on. It will be a lot less frustrating to worry about that then worrying about being out in the sun all the time. However, not matter which path of curing it you choose you can never go back to being a vampire. (Which I somewhat regret with my stealth character but not completely xD)

Austin

On December 13, 2011 at 6:41 pm

Easy way to feed. Go to the graybeards wait for one to go to sleep have your self a epic meal time

Reading the comments here serve only to completely decimate one’s faith in humanity. Beyond everything about vampirism in Skyrim being super intuitive, the author of the post above answered damn near every question asked.
Vampirism progresses in stages, from 1-4, as you abstain from “feeding.”
To feed, go up to any sleeping npc (spouse included) and select feed.
That’ll put you back at stage 1. NPC’s will not attack you, not for being a vampire anyway.
This will also reduce your vampire abilities to the base 25% bonus.

My recommendation for vampires (if you actually intend to play as a vampire you know you have to change how you play) open console: within quotes “set timescale to 1″
This will make the rate of change of time realtime. The normal value is 16 or something. You can run around night for longer, don’t have to deal with the diminished regen.

Dragan

On December 18, 2011 at 6:15 pm

Listen, if you are a vampir, be invisibile and take of all of your clothes because off silent sneaking! Any kind of armor make noise and wake up people. later you can progress skills in sneaking and reduce noise from armors…

If your a stage four vampire just sneak into someone’s house in rorickstead or ivarstead and feed, it’s easy!
I have TWO filled black soul gems but every time I talk to falion he says I need to fill them :/. Does it matter what size soul is in the gem? Any help please.

Jack

On December 20, 2011 at 6:48 pm

Thanks! Useful tips, I am gonna try to get cured.

Jack

On December 20, 2011 at 7:48 pm

yeah ! I did it ! Thanks !
Just like the author said, I asked any Inn keeper about rumors, and they would ask me to talk to Falion about the cure. Falion then asked me to fill a soul , and I bought the black gem and the Soul Trap Spell. And I fast travelled to Embarshard Mine after feeding ( in case I would become the Stage 4 vampire) , to cast and kill the bandits there. Then I went back to Falion, and yes, he agreed to do a ritual. Around 5Am at the ritual place, Falion cured my vampirism ! Yes! Finally! I am back to normal life!

au2bahn

On December 21, 2011 at 12:29 am

Thanks, but didn’t work. Falion stole my gem and stiffed me. He just wants to sell me his services of spell casting. Now, I killed him for soliciting his wares when I didn’t want them. Wish I could do this to all advertisers. ;-) 1 month of vamping now, learning to live with it. Feeding is very easy now, so is killing whole villages. The champions no longer exist, along with the stormcloaks. Would like to try to make a frost troll a vamp. That would be one mean mother…. Giants and their wooly pets too.

Harry

On December 21, 2011 at 6:34 am

Hey, I have done every step right, it’s just as soon as it gets to the day I am cured at dawn, I’m at the stage of vampire and everyone tries to kill me – including Falion. Any ideas or ways everyone can stop killing me or do I have to start game again?
*I don’t have any auto-saves before stage 1, so there’s no way I can load that and just use a disease-cure potion.

Jack

On December 21, 2011 at 8:17 am

Harry,

How about trying load the saves before stage 4, when you are Stage 2 or 3? Then try to sneak into houses and feed? Feeding always bring you back to Stage one, and then, citizens as well as Falion would not attack you and Falion could get you cured. Good luck!

On December 22, 2011 at 2:31 pm

When people are always attacking you Rodney King style that usually means your a stage 4 vampire. to get yourself to a stage 3 you have to crouch and preform a good old fashioned B&E {breaking and entering] while still crouching feed on the person or persons’ still sleeping cozy in there beds. Next while still a stage 3 vampire go to Morthall go to the inn ask the bartender if she’d “heard any rumors” meet up with Falion, fill a black soul gem with a trap soul scroll, enchanted item, spell will work go back to Falion and your screen will fade black leaving me to believe you are no longer a sparkly vampire.

On December 23, 2011 at 12:18 pm

this worked for me .

i was a stage 4 vampire before i even knew id been bitten,
apperntly i was my 5th day into been a vampire.

i fast traveld to just outside (Movarths Lair)
i sneaked at 2am up to the little small house just outside of morthal
where a man and women sleep. theres a guard that walks the bridge but he wont see you
if done correctly .
entre there house after 1am . feed on either of them at least 3 or 4 times .

now fast travel to any town with an inn. i used whiterun and the bannerd marre .
ask the inn keeper about nay rumours, keep repeating this question untill
she mentions Falion .

now fast tarvel again to morthal and go and meet Failon .
at this point i all ready had a black soul gem.
QUEST starts .

kill a bandit and collect his soul . return to Failon .
QUEST to meet Failon at dawn starts .

Wait till 2am then sneak on over to the same house again and feed on either than man or lady
get some vampire feeding done there.

then head on into the woods to meet Falion at the stone cirlce .
he showed up around 5.40am on my game .

—– the tricky part!! QUEST =Speak to Falion !!

after he shows up he sometimes waits on the outside of the circled stones . and that doesnt alow you to start the ritual/QUEST .
so walk upto him, holding no weapons or shield, and just try to slowly push him towards the stones/circle . untill the QUEST starts for you. dont anger him or he will attack you.

Failon will then complete his ritual and you should be cleared of vampirism .

Shankathon

On December 23, 2011 at 9:50 pm

Ok im going to give you the step by step run through, but first this is how you tell what stage you are on go to your active effects and look for RESIST FROST 1st stage is 25% 2nd is 50% 3rd is 75% and 4th is 100%.

1: STARTING THE QUEST_
Go to any inn and talk to the inn keeper about rummors untill its no longer highlited.
2. TALKING TO YOUR CURER/GETTING BLACK SOUL GEM
Go to Morthal and follow the quest arrow and talk to Failon (if you have never talked to him before there may be script about rumors of him just pick one and continue) Once you he has finished explaing what needs to be done buy the black soul gem from him.
3. FILLING THE GEM
a. enchant a weapon with soul trap, buy a scroll that traps souls, or buy a spell that traps souls and then find a bandit or other HUMAN npc and kill
it while the soul trap effect is going.
4. STARTING THE RITUAL
Go back to Failon and tell him you have filled the soul gem. He will tell you to meet him somewhere just follow the quest arrow.
5. COMPLETING THE RITUAL
Wait untill 5:30 AM and Failon should be there (if not its a glitch just wait another 24 hours and i think it fixes itself) Now speak with Failon and say you are ready for the ritual he will talk for a bit then your screen will go dark and come back CONGRATS you are cured
6. TROUBLESHOOTING
If you are at stage 4 and cant find anyone to feed on look around outside for any inns or huts as they usually have npcs in them wait for nightfall and drink your fill.
7. ALTERNATE METHOD
If you have not drunk the blood to become a werewolf durring the companions questline drinking the blood from the basin removes the vampire traits completely.

Larry gives you a step by step guide which is 100% accurate on how to do this, the man is spot on with everything and it took me about 6 hours to try and do this until Larry helped, 30 mins and I was 100% fixed. Thanks Larry you’re a ledge ;)

Actually, if you have the ‘Voice of the Emperor’ Power which Imperials should have. There is a way to make Falion cure you if you were a stage four vampire. It’ll take a few days to cure your disease but it will work if you use the ‘Voice of the Emperor’ at the right place and times. That power will make anybody act normal to you for a short while. Falion will individually hunt you down if you are still near the the town of Morthal. That is how I got to speak with him using the ‘Voice of the Emperor’. Use the ‘select’ button to sleep and fastforward time so you can use the ‘Voice of the Emperor’ again.

Austin

All you need to do is push him closer to the stones and it will work

whateverr

On December 26, 2011 at 11:23 am

THIS WORKS EVERY TIME. and i tried for like 2 hours to feed.

Fast travel to Windhelm Stables..make sure you get there around 1am.

Take off armor and weapons, everything.
Put on your vampire invisibility power…from the stables, run east to the first house on the farm. Make sure your in “sneak” mode..
unlock the door, and there is a lady sleeping. Push feed 3-4 times.
There you go! Stage 1.
I found to do this and then fill the gem then go back and do this once more before going back to Falion.

On December 26, 2011 at 6:14 pm

I almost threw this f**king game out the window. He never started the ritual when i met him i spent 4 hours feeding and going back, finally he moved close enough where i could talk to him and he did the ritual. Finally. This game was good till i became a vampire. good thing it finally worked cause my disk would be shattered by now. bad move on the game makers part, its gonna cause alot of problems and it has already

Anonymous

On December 27, 2011 at 1:27 pm

If you guys know this you must sneak while you have the embrace of shadows because even tho they cant see you they can still hear you. And second if you have a higher sneaking skill this would be alot easier for you

TO EVERYONE HOW TO PEMRANENTLY CURE VAMPIRISM!

*SPOILERS*

To PERMANENTLY cure Vampirism you have to become a Werewolf.

To do that go to the companions and talk to them about doing quests then obviously do quests until you enter the circle.

To get people to talk to you if you’re a evolved vampire, you must feed on people, just break in to someones home and activate them then go nom on them do that until you reach stage 1 again (to buy more time) and then continue with the companions questline, remember once you become a werefolf you can’t catch vampirism again.

Too people that are sceptical about becoming a werewolf let me tell you.
It’s awesome you have NO CHANGES when in HUMAN form except for weakness to silverweapons. (which is only in the companions questline) and you are insanly powerfull in beastform and fast in beastform.

and you can cure lycanthropy (werewolf uhh… ism!) but that is PERMANENT soo you can NOT becoma a werewolf again and you can then in turn catch Vampirism again and have no permanent cure for it afterwads.

This vampire curse thing has caused me a load of grief. Was looking at Falion (with my back to Morthal)and Falion was directly facing me. At exactly 07:00 (skyrim time) he started to walk back to Morthal and in doing so walked across the centre of the stone and said “Oh Good, Your Here”. Ritual performed. (There seems to be a glitch in the game where Falion doesnt knowingly want to tread on the circle stone center – you gotta make him stand on it). Ones things for sure ** now that im cured im always going to carry a cure disease potion incase more vampires are encountered. Couldnt have made this work without these posts, so thanks. ** Even with its faults and accentricities…Skyrim IS the best games on PS3. A truly crafted, atmospheric and quality game. Hope you guys get to perform the ritual soon. Cheers, Mark.

The main explanation about people succeeding, people failing, people ranting and people quitting, is because of glitches in the game that makes someone cured, and some not.

On January 1, 2012 at 3:18 pm

thankyou after three or four skyrim days it worked.so
1. firstly feed at morthal
2. speak to falion and buy a empty black soul gem.
3. go to magic school at winterhold and buy soul trap
4. go to falion again he will tell you to meet at the circle.
5. go feed again at about 5am.
6.around 6.30 wait for falion to go to the circle but dont get too close.
7. then approach him.speak to him and it should work well it did for me or the tv was going out the window. good luck.

Follow the cure at the top. If the guy (Falion) who is supposed to cure you just stand outside the circle repeating the same answers, do this, it worked for me.

Just use your hands and sock him. He will come after you. Go into the circle and put your hands down. He will forgive you and start the ritual.

Also, buy the gem and spell off the Falion. He has both for cheap.

For feeding. Hit the house across from the mill at Morthal during the day. Pick the lock. The wife will be home. Kill her normally and take her key to the house. Feed on her husband at night.

Feeding is easy. Sneak up and when is say “pick pocket” select the sleeping person and it will bring up a voice to feed or pick pocket.

please help

To everyone having problems feeding, simple
1. work on your sneak level and get that up…
2. use enchanted gear that enhances you sneak and potions.
With this combo people can nearly walk right next to you and not see you.
as for people having problems filling soul gems, it has to be a Grand soul, a persons soul as the guy says, you have to kill a person, not a wolf or bear or anything just a person. FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS, both above and in game instructions.
IT WORKS.
as for finding people asleep, try after midnight around 3 is when i feed, and there are lots of cottages and shakes in the middle of no where all over skyrim where people live alone as well as small camps and stuff where there are not tons of guards.
and as mentions above you can feed of lydia and other companions you get. it is not hard.

I love the benefits of being a vamp for combat.. but my next goal in-game (smithing) would be a hassle having to feed all the time. IF i cure, can i get again or is it a one time only deal?

you have to bye the black soul jem ar have it with just pickpocket him and take it from him

On January 8, 2012 at 3:34 am

If you looking to feed, two people are asleep (during sleeping hours)in the house behind the inn. Use sneak all the time at night while you are a stage 4…and it will work. Although very annpoying to be a vampire..take a step back and realise that this is yet another thing that makes this game so great. Skyrim is to the PS3 what Star Wars was to the cinema. One wish?.. They remake Oblivion how they made Skyrim.

On January 11, 2012 at 9:48 pm

You people are all retarded. there are houses and farms outside all of the cities. you also have a sneak ability for a reason. Just make sure to be a stage 1 vampire the whole time. watch your active effects page and feed constantly

If you go to high hrothgar at night there’s normally some grey beards sleeping. They don’t attack you and you can feed on them.

On January 12, 2012 at 7:24 pm

This actually works if you just follow the guide. It’s been like two months in game and I have not been a vampire since. I didn’t need to do the companion quest or anything. It works. Deuces

X3X

On January 13, 2012 at 1:16 pm

I was really having fun in this game until I contracted this. I find impossible to go anywhere or do anything as sneak does not work, embrace of shadows does not work, People locate me from far away, I can’t find anyone to feed on, when I do they wake up. I have an old glassfront TV so I was not able to read the text telling me…..’YOUR BECOMING A VAMPIRE’……This is a horrible feature of a great game. If I have no success at getting cured I’m probably going to hang out at the local gamestop where my friends work and tell them not to buy it. Why would you put such a feature in a game without a strategy guide that tells you how to fix it? I don’t know why anyone would put a mode like this in the game at all. Please, Please, Please someone help me. I’ve read most of the above but the challenge is going places without attracting attention and getting killed.

Learned how to feed, initiated and nearly completed Falion mission. He took the soul gem but did not say anything and did not cure me???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

X3X

On January 14, 2012 at 4:57 pm

Also, made sure to be stage 1, went and followed him way out of morthal. He did not add to mission, or even have the option of buying anything from him

X3X

On January 14, 2012 at 7:53 pm

He comes out at 2AM to the shrine. I attacked him and overcame him and so he kneels instead of dying because he one of the NPC’s that doesn’t die. When he stood back up this seemed to re-trigger the mission and complete the ritual. This is some sort of bug in the game I’ve heard. Hope this helps someone.

Being in the thieves guild comes in handy here because Ive found that they will still talk to me. Also the dark brotherhood.

Jocco5150

On January 15, 2012 at 6:44 pm

I completed the ritual the first time with no problem. Just be sure to feed. And if you are in the thieves guild, the den is a good place to feed

@paulogdm

On January 16, 2012 at 10:18 am

for those of you having problems after you talk to him at dawn and he does not continue the ritual, use these console commands

rid 0001aa5e (press return)
moveto player (press return)

he will spawn in front of you so make sure your in the middle of the place and he will then say good your here and continue with the quest.

Go to a lightly protected village and kill the guards, enter a house at night and feed on the owner, you will now be able to travel for a day without being attacked. Visit Falion at Morthal (his door seems to be open in the evening) and ask about being cured and buy a black soul gem from him. Go back to the village and feed, then visit the sage at Dragonsreach and buy the soul trap tome and activate it. Find somebody to use the soul trap on at the village at night and kill them within 60 seconds to collect their soul in the gem. Feed again and then go back to Falion where he will meet you at dawn in the marshes and cure you.

okay, my skyrim disk is telling me that it is unreadable and to either wash off the disk, or restart my xbox console. so i cleaned it off, didnt work. then i restarted my xbox, also didnt work. i am going to return it, since i have a warranty on it, but anyway- skyrim doesnt work on my account but it works on my brothers account… has that happened to anyone else?

Brandon

On January 18, 2012 at 4:37 am

I’ve seen many people give advice on this and they seem not to understand so I will try and say this in a more descriptive matter.

If already a Stage 4 Vampire (People Attack on Sight) then go to ANY place you know that people have a house. Save once you are close to the house (Just incase you get caught) Take of Armour/Weapons if your Low leveled in Sneak (If lower than 25 I suggest stashing all your Items in a nearby storage). Now before you enter the house make sure you are already in sneak, Enter the house, SLOWLY move your joystick in the direction you need to go (The slower you move in Sneak the less chance of being caught). Stick to the shadows if possible, Get close to the bed but If the Sleeping person is faced towards you only get close enough to pickpocket by clicking the legs or feet. Once you Pickpocket; a window will pop up asking to feed; Feed on the sleeping person, an animation will appear, repeat this 4 times. Each Time you feed you decrease a stage of vampirism. Now you will NOT be attacked on sight.

1. To begin your quest, speak with any Inn Keeper or Bartender about rumors. They’ll tell you that a man named Falion in Morthal is studying vampires. Click “Start” and make the quest your current Objective as it will be easier to find Falion/Morthal if not already found.

2. Go to Morthal, Once there, talk to Falion and he’ll discuss how to cure vampirism (Must be during the day or he will call the guards due to trespassing).
He’ll tell you to get a Black Soul Gem. If you don’t have one, Falion will sell you one. Before being cured, you’ll need to fill the Black Soul Gem.

3. To fill a Black Soul Gem, you’ll need to cast a Soul Trap spell on a human, then kill them. Any human will work, including bandits and enemies. (If you do not have Soul Trap then go to any of the Jarl’s Castles/Longhouses, inside you will find a mage. Trade with them and they will have a Soul Trap Tome OR buy a Soul Trap Scroll if you have 100 Magicka or below.)

4. With a filled Black Soul Gem, return to Falion and talk to him to continue the Quest, he will ask to meet at the Ritual Site at dawn (Between 6Pm and 5Am depending how fast he walks there).
If he does not enter the circle and will not continue with the Ritual after he arrives, push him in the circle by using your Shout or Push him by walk against him.

You’re now cured of vampirism! Hope this helped with the Sneaking Issues + Ritual Glitch.

hey im not sure if anyone brought this up but… if u turn lyican before getting turned into a vamp ur inmune to it. also i think if u turn while being a vamp u will turn into a lycan and be cured. hope this helps

On January 18, 2012 at 11:01 am

Seems like the creators really hate vampires, they want to make anybody that is one or even like the idea of them completely miserable while they spend time in their fantasy world. Lol thats great, if you wanna be a vampire go play something else.

On January 23, 2012 at 5:54 pm

alright well i’m on stage 4 of vampirism and i’m trying to feed on the blood of someone but i always get caught. I’ve tried going to stormclock base camps and going into sneak using my invisability and they always wake up. I’ve went to whiterun and tried to sneak into the gaurd’s little sleeping place or whatever and when i went into the door of whiterun (i was in sneak and i was using my invisability) i automatically lose the sneak and everyone attacked me. I’ve tried like everything and they all catch me, i mean i only have 45 sneak i guess it would be high enough but i jsut can’t get it! anyone got any suggestions?

sjr101696

On January 24, 2012 at 9:02 pm

Okay, if unless you have done with dark brotherhood quests, outside of Ivarstead, their should be a homeless person in a ruined house. wait till he falls asleep, and drink his blood.

Alx

On January 25, 2012 at 2:45 pm

On stage 4 it’s realy hard to do the quest, so if you play on a PC and you don’t mind “cheating” a bit, open the console (key at the left of 1 on the keyboard) type “setstage 000eafd5 10″ and press enter. Vampirism cured and no problems occurred so far..

yensama

On January 26, 2012 at 7:23 am

man this is.. how do i put it, funny? frustrating? a mix of both i guess. I failed so very close like many others. Just a few hours into stage 4. First I thought it was part of story that you have to rush through everyone wanting to kill you, and when you reach Falion you will be cured and everything gets back to normal. But he started to attack me, that made me lol

I tried many things before search and found this help. And then the glitch. It is almost so funny that they didnt test this, since it is basically like a gameover.

It has been kinda frustrating i guess, but when i read some posts with one that said about dragon interfere with the ritual i lol

Anyway, i solved the problem with the code.

I don’t know if anyone’s already posted this coz I cbf reading it all but there is a permenent cure/block to vampirism and that is to become a werewolf. I’m sure most of you already knew this but I’m just saying.

chris

On January 27, 2012 at 12:26 pm

easiest way is to reverse once already at stage 4 for me was to drink the blood from people (i drank like five peoples blood to make sure it would work) then go to whiterun and talk to the companions and if not already a companion then become one and do their missions to get into the circle and become a ware wolf. once a ware wolf it will kill the vampire disease and ten you can never get it again. also you get to use ware wolf powers so its badass.

austin

On January 28, 2012 at 4:30 am

everyone Falion will attack if your at stage 4. if your sneak is low and you don’t have muffle you get caught even when invisible. the only permanent cure is to become and stay a werewolf. learn to use the vampire seduction power and calm spells

Mythra

On January 28, 2012 at 4:19 pm

STAGE 4 – NEED A PLACE TO FEED?

Stonehills Mine just east of Morthal has miners who sleep in tents during the night. (Possibly the day but I went at night) There should be at least 4 people to feed off of from there.
It’s at the bottom of the mountain and slightly north/east. Just follow the path. I hope this helps.

Scott

On February 2, 2012 at 1:04 pm

Anyone who is having problems feeding:
•join darkbrotherhood and feed on them, they won’t attack regardless of vampire stage, not sure if this works with other guilds, but the DBH is far away from the cities or npc’s of any kind, anyway my question was, after the ritual, can you become a vampire again? Without console commands, I cured my vampirism because I was of too low a level to fight anything through the day, and that may sound ok but dragons can come down at any time and then you’re pretty ed :/ any reply would be very much appreciated (:

AshleyJo

On February 2, 2012 at 5:17 pm

I Had Some Troubles Also, This Is What I Did For Those Who Are Having Trouble. I Went And Bought The Black Soul Gem AND The Spell Book: Soul Trap FROM Falion. Then I Went To A Random Cave Used The Spell On A Bandit And Killed Him, Then I Went Back To Morthal. This Is Really Important! MAKE SURE YOU PUT ON CLOTHES THAT HAVE BASICALLY NO WEIGHT. Anyone Can Here Steel Armor Or Imperial Armor Or Ect.!! So Put On Light Clothes. At 2 AM, In Morthal, Go The The Only House Across The River, Pick Their Lock, Feed THREE Times, Then At 3 OR 4 AM, Go The The Ritual Circle. Wait For Him To Get There.
I Had Problems With Him Not Starting The Ritual, He Only Had His Usual Commands. So What I Did, I Got In My Crouch/Sneak Position, And Walked Behind Him, After A Little Bit He Will Walk Forward (As If He Were Getting Out Of Your Way.) Keep Doing That Until He In Close The The Circle, Then Walk Onto The Circle And He Should Say, “Good, Your Here.”
Hope I Helped! Happy Playing(:

You are all idiots. If u are on day 4 then your screwed. Reload to where to have enough time left and do the quest. I fixed mine on day 3, it’s the only right way, and it’s simple. I don’t have to worry about any of that stupid vampire/werewolf crap anymore. So please everyone stop crying about the obvious effects of vampirism, and just fix it before it’s too late. And if it is, then pay attention more.

Ya know, if you don’t fancy yourself a mage you could always just enchant a random weapon with soul trap (if you have it)and kill a bandit with your enchanted weapon and it should fill your black soul gem,then bring it back to Falion

Smartest Skyrimer

On February 7, 2012 at 6:25 pm

You are all stupid.
Go into ANY INN after 10:00 pm. and there will MOST LIKELY be people sleeping in the rooms. Some small towns have no guests, but Riften, Solitude, and Markarth for sure have guests at night. Also try going into a Jarl’s house/palace. After 10pm is when they usually go to bed so you can feed on them also. FYI: for some of you non-observant players out there, you only need to feed ONCE to get reduced to level one Vampirism even if you’re at level 4. Also if you need to know what level of vampirism you are currently on,(X Box 360) press B (PS3 press SQUARE) (PC Idk >:\ )and go to magic then go to active effects and scroll all the way down it will either be second to last or last to the bottom, if the resistance level is -25% you are level one, -50% level 2, -75% level 3, and -100% level 4.
-Hope this helped!

I’m a vampire but I want to become a pimp. Is there a spell or quest to complete to become a pimp? I saw some good youtube videos where the nord character goes from a full suit of armor and helmet to a purple suit, and a feathered hat. The staff turned into a pimp cane, and a bottle of mead turned into a pimp cup. There was also a new backhand slap ability added to the skills.

Guys found a reallly easy way to cure vampirism, if you have a follower get her/hi to sleeep on a bed by just commanding them to do so then feed off them. Also I would do this inside your own house since no npcs including mad people can come inside

Anyone who said that you need to drop all soul gems to fill the black one is full of crap. I just did it with my inventory full of gems. Also, I don’t know how you have not been able to complete the quest before becoming stage 4 Vampire. I started and ended the quest a stage 1, without feeding. Thank you for this guide, it was really helpful.

********************************
If u re stuck with the Vampire do these steps
********************************************

Origin – I think you get infected when a vampire hits you. I had to do a quest in Morthal where i had to kill a master vampire who was directing a vampire gal named alva in the village. If u do this , check ur active effects under the magic tab and see whether u have the disease with vampire blood or something labelled in `red`. There is a percentage that could help you to find ur vampire leval . Crazy happens depending on your vampire level. if resistance level is -25% = level 1, -50% level 2, -75% level 3, and -100% level 4. This level 4 if the stage where everyone attacks you on sight and you cant complete the quest to cure the disease.
( more on that later )

steps……………..

1. First identify that you have Vampirism. ( check origin above for details.)

2. Go to any inn as quickly as possible and talk to the innkeeper.

3. Click the rumours dialog option.

4. The quest opens

5. Before you go to the preist, travel to drangonreach and find the court wizard

6. Purchase spell tome : soul trap or scroll if available

&. Go to morthal and meet the wizard according to the quest

7. Buy his black soul gem for 300 gold

8. Go to a easy bandit lurking spot. ( the map will aid you to find keeps
in these keeps bandits roam by. Otherwise go to Helgen it is bandit a city)

9.Cast the soul trap and collect a soul

10. If it is daytime the prest is sleep. go to the preists house quickly and feed urself leisuerly from him before you reach level 4. Then go to the inn and purchase a room and sleep until 10.30pm.

11. Meet the preist and select the appropriate dialog and he will take ur gem.

12. When he says to meet him at dawn go back to the inn and sleep again in ur already purchased room. make sure you get up around 2.30am.

13. Go the preists house and wait for him. at sharp 3.00am he will show up. follow him to the circle or whereever.

14. The game from here suffers a major glitch. it seems that everyone played including me suffered from this lag and it takes a hell lot of time to get around.
heres how

15. In the glitch you cant perform the damn ritual. When u talk to the preist on the ritual spot there is no dialog to continue the ritual. Do these steps accordingly
1. open the console with ~ button
2. type these
prid 0001aa5e (press enter)
moveto player (press enter)

3. exit console then you will see the preist reapperinng on top of you, this is ok just step aside and he will say the magic words ” Good, You are here “. Then u can perform the ritual as normal. After this no more vampire stuff until u get into contact with one later on.

This all thing took me about 4 hours to cure myself. with this desease you cant go outside because the stamina , health , and magika u used wont regenerate in day time and as i sed in level 4 u get attacked by everyone. This is bad as u cant travel in daytime without keeping your stuff from not regenerating.

You can do whatever you want without paying attention to these tips but let me assure you this worked fine for me after much frustation and now i am where i started before the disease.

So Relax try this And dont worry no harm done and you can enjoy Skyrim as u used to do and i wish bethesda will fix this before they lose die hard RPG fans after frustation………………………………….

On the computer
Open console with ~

setstage 000eafd5 10

works like a charm! Nothing happens to your quest progress, nothing happens to your levels and perks, nothing happens to your inventory. The only thing that’s different? Well, you’re not a vampire!
If you still have the same look as when you were one, well you’re on the computer anyways. Just press ~ again and type “showracemenu” and change your look again.

if you’re a level four and he attacks you just use a spell to calm him down. i used voice of the emperor which calms everyone down for 60 seconds. it’ll automatically go into the dialogue to cure you.

Chris

On February 25, 2012 at 3:59 pm

Ok, this is getting incredibly annoying? Must have been waiting at the Shrine for four in-game days now, the man does not show up. I’m probably level four now, but I sure as hell wasn’t when I first showed up, had just fed off my follower. This is making me so god damn pissed. Fing glitches!

Since when do vampires wait till your sleeping to attack you and suck your blood? What a stupid thing to add to an amazing game,has ruined the whole game for me as I cant get near anyone to suck their blood and since im level 4 i cant do any missions.

On March 1, 2012 at 6:53 am

Cetainly worked for me. Ps3. Took almost no effort at all. I already had a black sould gem filled with a grand soul. Just had to wait. Fixed it all.

Jon

On March 7, 2012 at 4:26 pm

I have not done the quest yet, but the option to cure it before it starts (within 3 days) is incorrect. I have tried 2 shrines of talos and a potion of cure disease, neither of which did anything to my vampirism. After using the potion my stats screen still does not show “days as vampire” so it appears that i am still within my 3 days but these so called “cures” have done nothing. Still weak to fire based on vampiric blood.

Brian

On March 8, 2012 at 4:52 pm

Thank you so much! It worked, and it only took me around 5 minutes. I discovered a new way of making coins as well. Fill a bunch of soul gems and sell them for 200+ each :) )) I already bought 2 new horses and a fully upgraded house. Thank you so much <3

Brian

On March 8, 2012 at 4:55 pm

PS: When he says “Meet me at dawn” try waiting to about 4-5 AM. I just stood there and waited 1-2 hours at a time and it helped me greatly :)

Ethan

On March 13, 2012 at 1:14 pm

When I noticed I was a vamp, I was in the Hall of Kings, because I had noticed the weakness when the sun rose, I thought I’d see if Ulfric had the answer. Right before I could talk to him my screen glowed red and said “Your blood starts to boil as your final step into vampirism is complete.” I was weirded out and then I was walking out and a guard made the comment “Your looking a little pale, are you afraid of the sun or something?” Then the game froze and so I went here. Thanks for the help.

On March 13, 2012 at 11:55 pm

Key for stress free feedings. Grab a follower. Lydia works just fine. Now vampirism is not so bad of an issue. Just order her to sleep in some bed on your way out of the dungeon you hPpen to be in, that way you’ll be phase uno before you have to go back to town. Just remember to tell her to follow you when you’re full. She tends to wait after your feeding. Vampirism is intended cor stealth characters in skyrim. Unlike morrowind where they had a different strain of vampirism for each “class”. My only reason for curing it is the sunlight issue. I recommed you all try to kill a few fire breathing dragons during daylight hours before completing this quest. Dont forget to save.

Ok so im a werewolf but my little bro is a v.amp stage 4 and really quick cuz my timing is short where are ppl u can feed on so yea or who is the closest person to kill for a soul gem. Thanks

Lordjoe1987

On March 20, 2012 at 4:48 am

I got so stressed when I became a stage 4 vampire, it ruins the game and I was so close to giving up but there is a slight glitch with the game when you meet failon.
I got to the stage where I met failon at the shrine and then it says ‘talk to failon’ but nothing happens! Lol
I finally found out how to talk to him! :D
Failon doesent walk on the shrine so I pushed him near it with your Voice shout, he may stagger or attack you but if you beat him don’t worry as he cant die, he will collapse but when he gets back up he should walk over the Shrine, at that point talk to him quickly!

That’s how it worked for me :D finally lol hope this helps

On March 21, 2012 at 3:58 am

i can’t get the cure because falion tries to kill what then

Tony

On March 21, 2012 at 11:49 pm

I just want to say that anyone having a problem with vampirism should just play Pokemon…both me and my fiance are new to these elder scrolls games, I actually don’t play I just watch her but have played role playing games since before half of you were born and it took us less than a half an hour to cure her vampire problem after reading this guide…either learn to read or learn to play a game your fragile mind can handle. Its really easy to just follow directions…and sneaking up on sleeping people to feed is a stroll in the park lol seriously you guys are terrible at this hahaha

Jake

On March 22, 2012 at 7:30 pm

Hey everybody! If you have a pc and you want to cure the disease, hit the tilde key (~) and type in setstage 000eafd3 10 (or setstage eafd3 10). This should get rid of even stage 4 vampirism. it worked for me

MetaMorphine

On March 25, 2012 at 3:00 am

Here is one answer might help : Ok, so you followed all the steps, black soul gem, eat on souls, and come to see Falion but he still saying the 3 useless sentence… What I did, (third personn view), try to push him with a shield (no weapon on the other hand)… yes, almost nothing happen… but after few seconds, he start to walk 2 meters close to temple… repeat one or twice and boum! he will cure the vampirism.
As “Lordjoe1987″ said it might also work using the Thu’um to push him few meters closer to the temple.

I don’t even know how it happend.. I just started to feel these “weird thirsts” and all. And suddenly it said I was a freaking vampire. And it honsetly annoyed me so much! People told me I looked weird and all. Then all the people in the city attacked me. I went to an old save and used a potion called “cure disease” I sure hope it works, or else I’ll start from scratch even though I’ve come this far.

If you go to High Hrothgar at stage 4 the Greybeards won’t attack you. So just find one that’s sleeping and feed on them and as long as none of the other Greybeards see you feeding they won’t attack you. So use them if you need to feed. :)

i have the soul gem, but no inn keeper is giving me any vampire rumors, and i found Falion but theres no convo option about curing me at all. Do I have to wait till I’m full on vampire or what?

frazer wolfclan

On July 16, 2012 at 7:32 pm

i enjoy being a hybrid and when ur a vampire/werewolf and u have done the quest already to get rid of vampirism and you cant feed any more just contract the deasise again, works in any stage and back to stage one really usefull tip if needed i did this because my vampires sight diapered and couldnt feed but when i contracted it again then i could feed and wasnt getting attacked any more

NoFangkYou

On July 19, 2012 at 11:27 am

GUYS, this does work, even for level 4. Just did it there!
I had the whole screaming and running away thing. As long as you feed, you’ll go back to normal. I snuck about small towns like Morthal until I found someone sleeping, best to do it as late at night as possible.
Another trick if you don’t want Failoin to attack you is visit him in his house. Fast forward til tenish til he goes to bed. Even though the wee girl is there, if you go invisible either with vamp powers or vampire dust you can feed. When he wakes up, run for it into the forest. Then fast forward time to 4am and meet him, and volia! Bye Bye vampire!

vampire scientist

On July 20, 2012 at 6:24 pm

you don’t need a soul trap, you can use one but i would recommend learning the enchantment of the weapon you get after saving whiterun from the dragon. if you learn that you can put the enchantment on another weapon e.g. scimitar. but if you can’t find a strong enough weapon you can also use the soul trap i can’t seem to find.

does the Soul captured have to be the same species as your character? or just human?

Chris

On July 28, 2012 at 6:50 pm

Hi so I did all of this, and I think it is a glitch in the game… I did all of the above, meet falion in the swamp at dawn, and he is like stuck… so I turn off the game turn it back on and if I talk to him he just tries to sell me stuff and it is the regular menu… so I went back and loaded a previous save.. did everything all over again and it is still the same outcome he is standing there, not curing me! I think I have to give up hope and start a new game… Where on the map is Talos shrine?? I have done zig zags around whiterun and i dont hink i am finding what you are talking about.. will it cure me ?

so I did the quest to cure vampirism and for some reason I’m still a vampire. I also happen too be a werewolf so i didn’t think i could contract vampirism but somehow I did. Now that I’ve done the cure quest I cannot do it again and cannot continue my Dawnguard quests (I sided with the dawnguard). Anybody have some advice, or a mod that can get rid of vampirism?

Ava

On November 5, 2012 at 8:59 am

Wow, guys, seriously. Are there this many trolls in the same place, or do you just suck? This guide works, I can assure you.
1) Make sure you aren’t and won’t be stage 4 vampire when you interact with Falion, or anyone else, for that matter, who isn’t a follower or something.
2) To get back to stage 1 vampirism, feed on someone. To do this, you must SNEAK up to a sleeping person and interact with them – this will bring up two options – namely pickpocket or steal. They sleep at NIGHT, ok? And usually in their BEDS. To sneak, enter sneaking mode (use the damned left Ctrl, or Strg in German) and don’t carry armor unless you have a sound-removing buff. Using invisibility will help, but it won’t remove sounds. So ing remember to stay unseen AND unheard in order to successfully sneak.
3) Get yourself a damned black soul gem filled with a damn HUMANOID soul!
4) Now talk to Falion (again) and follow him. Don’t ing stand around or go look at flowers while he’s walking away. You’ll lose him just like you’d lose your mom if you get distracted while she’s walking onward in a busy city.
5) Do AS IS SAID in the quest/by Falion/by people who ing know what they’re talking about, and everything is going to be alright.

it.

Ava

On November 5, 2012 at 9:01 am

Oh, one more thing. If you can’t find someone, make sure that the reason isn’t that you’ve killed them! Most dead people stay dead.

Endlessspeed9

On November 11, 2012 at 10:46 am

also an extra way to cure it : if you haven’t become a full member of the companions yet. And then i mean the turning in a werewolf part. when you first get to go to the ”werewolf turning” ceremony and actually became a werewolf, then you have lost the vampirism :-)

Luke

On December 21, 2012 at 9:49 am

Guys, im stuck here!!! i think I’m a stage 4 vampire by now and ive travelled to Morthor to see if i can find Fallion. Ive found him, however he too wants to kill me!! i do not have any calm spells or scrolls left to use and no way to stop him attacking me along with the other lot in the village. what can i do? everywhere i go im attacked and without me regenerating i die straight away. any help and advice??

Danny

On January 1, 2013 at 1:59 pm

For the people who need certain spells and can’t find them, where they were supposed to be:
If your level for that spell is not high enough, then it won’t become available,
Example:
I wanted the fire cloak spell, but found nothing as my persons level was 18 but my actual destruction magic was only 38, as soon as I got it to 40 I found it….

Also beware a spell also may not become available until you have enough magicka to actually cast the spell.

Aspect of Life

On March 22, 2013 at 1:35 pm

I did everything. I spoke to the person at the inn, I spoke to Falion, I got the black soul gem, and I give him the soul gem. I go to the summoning circle, and when I talk to him, the game gives me three basic dialogue options! This was just a waste of my time, and a black soul gem!

Nathan

On May 16, 2013 at 4:29 am

It does work if you are a level four. I have just done it.

Travel to Hjaalmarch stormcloak camp at night and there are people sleeping there.
Sneak up on a sleeping person and feed on them.
Travel back to Morthal when you aren’t a hungry powerful vampire and they leave you alone.
Go and speak to Falion.
You can buy a black soul gem and the spell book from him too.

Hope this helps.

Nathan

Also remember to meet him at Dawn so around 6. He turns up.

The first time it only let me ask the same 3 questions so i waited 24 hours and it worked

Found cure for stage 4 vampire, feed off of someone 10 or so times, then leave the area and go somewhere that as an inn, speak to the inn keeper if possible and get the quest, “Waking at Dawn” or whatever it is….forgot all ready…..still.. do the quest and ta-da your not a vampire anymore

asdfghjessk

On September 9, 2013 at 2:08 am

Just a heads up – There is a possible chance of glitching if you get cured whilst having Vampire Sight activated. This results in the perk becoming permanent. The effects are the screen becoming very blurred, over exposed and nearly impossible to see in the sunlight. However, this will benefit you in the dark.

Charles
