Quick Walkthrough[edit]

  • Go to [Radiant location] and infect [Radiant person] to earn his/her allegiance
  • report back to Vingalmo

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

In this quest you are required to go to a Radiant city and infect a Radiant NPC, earning their allegiance to the Volkihar Vampire Clan. Vingalmo suggests that you use Vampire's Seduction, requiring you to have not fed for an entire day, to ease the process of infecting, but biting the target while they are asleep will also work.

Once you have bitten your target, they will be part of the Clan. Return to Vingalmo to complete the quest.

Valindor[edit]

Valindor can be found in Riften and starts off his day by waking up at 4am and having a long breakfast for two hours in his house. At 10pm, he returns to his house to sleep for six hours until 4am, and repeats his schedule the following day.

Cairine[edit]

Cairine can be found in Markarth and spends her entire day at the Warrens. She rarely sleeps, and instead sits on the ground, making her a easy target.

Haran[edit]

Haran can be found in Winterhold at the inn. At 2am, she sleeps in the inn's cellar along with her daughter, Eirid.

Notes[edit]

  • If you are having trouble giving Harkon's gift to Haran, simply wait until 2 a.m. and she will be sleeping in the Frozen Hearth Cellar where no witnesses will see you.

Bugs[edit]

  • The quest giver may ask you to infect the same person if you have done this quest before. They cannot be turned into a vampire again.
    • PC Only This bug is fixed by version 1.1.1 of the Unofficial Dawnguard Patch.
    • One fix to this bug is to kill the already infected vampire. It marks the quest as "failed" but still completes it.
    • Another fix is to load a previous save from before accepting the quest and try again, as they may not give the same quest.
    • Pc22.png Finish any other active quests from the vampires, then go outside the castle and save. If any of the vampires send you to Vingalmo for work, reload the save, and, while outside, enter the setstage DLC1RV07 255 in the console. This will complete the quest and give you the reward, and the questline will progress as usual.
  • After biting the target your character may not be able to move, and you will not be able to complete the quest.
    • Reload from last autosave (should be from when you walk in) and feed from sneak mode.
  • You may be unable to feed on Cairine (likely due to her sitting animation).
    • Pc22.png One solution is to select her via the console (or by typing prid D6702) and enter the command resurrect 1, which should force her to stand temporarily. Once you close the console, immediately use your Vampire Seduction on her and rapidly press the activation/talk button, which should then allow you to access the feed option. Optionally, you may wish to toggle nearby Garvey's detection by selecting him in the console and typing tdetect.
  • After feeding on Cairine, the quest may not update and the quest marker will continue to point at her as if you have yet to feed.
  • Vingalmo may not interact with you at all, even though everyone will keep telling you to speak to him.

Quest Stages[edit]

New Allegiances (DLC1RV07)
Stage Finishes Quest Journal Entry
10 Vingalmo has sent me to <Alias=Habitation> where I am to find <Alias=Candidate> and bestow the Gift of Blood upon <Alias.PronounObj=Candidate>. I should first render <Alias.PronounObj=Candidate> pliant through the use of Vampire's Seduction then embrace and bite <Alias.PronounObj=Candidate> on the neck. If I currently lack the power, I should forego feeding for a day as I will gain the ability. I should then return to Vingalmo while <Alias=Candidate> undergoes the change.
