Here’s another “The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim” guide that you might want to take note of, as it will help you as you progress into the game.
Did you just turn yourself into a Vampire in “Skyrim,” but think this isn’t the best transformation for you, so you want to release yourself from Vampirism? Read on for the how-to.
Vampirism In ‘The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim’
Vampires are such amazing creatures in literature, movies, and even games that many people have dreamed of becoming one at some point in their lives.
What’s great about “Skyrim” is how it offers gamers several ways to customize their character according to their liking. For instance, you can transform your character into becoming a Vampire. A dream come true!
However, being a Vampire has its own limits. Vampires do not function well during the daytime. So, if at one point you feel that this character isn’t serving you well anymore, it is possible to cure your character of Vampirism. There are four methods.
Ways To Cure Vampirism In ‘Skyrim’
Method 1: Do The ‘Rising At Dawn’ Questline
Start By Asking An Innkeeper About Rumors To Get To The Quest
Look for an Inn and talk to its Innkeeper. Then, remember to choose the option, “Heard any rumors lately?” when prompted. Any Innkeeper across the game’s world can potentially hand you this quest. They will then refer you to Falion, a mage in Morthal.
Speak With A Dawnguard Member (If You Have The DLC Enabled)
Another way to contract Vampirism and get to the “Rising at Dawn” quest is to speak with a Dawnguard member (if you have installed the DLC).
Do this by traveling to Fort Dawnguard in the lower right corner of your map, east of Riften. Afterward, speak with any Dawnguard member there. They will then direct you to see Falion.
Talk To Falion And Learn About A Ritual
You shall then find yourself speaking with Falion the Mage to learn about a ritual. To do this, simply follow the instructions of the Innkeeper and take a trip to Morthal. You can often find Falion either wandering its streets or inside his house. As you speak with him, he will tell you about a ritual that puts an end to Vampirism. But remember, he’ll ask for a filled black soul gem as the next part of the quest.
Get A Black Soul Gem, Filling It With Human Soul
Purchase an empty black soul gem from Falion himself. Or, if you want, you can also search for this in the dungeons across Skyrim or on a necromancer’s body.
Now that you have the soul gem in your inventory, the next step is to use a Soul Trap weapon or cast the Soul Trap spell to claim the life of a humanoid. This shall absorb its soul into the gem so you and Falion can put it to good use.
Take The Soul Gem Back To Falion
Return to Falion and present the soul gem to him. Then, follow his instructions. Specifically, he will ask that you meet him at a summoning circle outside the town, located north of Morthal. But remember. Be sure to meet Falion between 5 and 6 a.m. “Skyrim” time. Once you arrive, he will start the ritual.
Let The Ritual Play Out
Lastly, you simply have to wait for the ritual to finish. After which, you only need to be conversing with the mage, and voila, you are cured of Vampirism.
Method 2: By Lycanthropy
Head To Jorrvaskr, Find The Companions And Join Them
Another way is by lycanthropy. Werewolves? Yes.
Journey to Whiterun and look for the Companion’s hall, which is a huge building known as Jorrvaskr in this city. Proceed to the lower level and talk to Kodlak Whitemane, the leader of the Companions. He will then let you join the Companions. After which, the faction quests will commence.
Finish The Companions Questline Via ‘The Silver Hand’
Note here that the Companions faction features many quests, with repeatable radiant missions included. You must complete all those quests from the Companions until you see “The Silver Hand” in your journal. Ask Farkas, a lycanthropic Nord, for a job, and he will instruct you to talk to Skjor. Just follow Skjor’s directions and meet him at night by the Underforge.
Aela The Huntress Will Turn You Into A Werewolf
Then, you’ll have Aela perform the blood ritual that will transform you into a werewolf.
After you get to Underforge, just continue with the quest and respond, “I’m ready,” when Skjor asks you to join the Circle. Then, after the Huntress prompts you, interact with the Underforge Fountain so you can contract lycanthropy and be a full-fledged werewolf.
Method 3: By Curing Sanguinare Vampiris
The only way to contact Sanguinare Vampiris, the disease that leads to Vampirism in “The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim,” is when you fight vampires and become infected by their advances.
If you get infected, wait for a message that will appear on the screen. But remember, if you get the disease, you are not a Vampire yet. You will have to wait for three days.
Take The Potion Of Cure Disease
You can usually find this throughout Skyrim as loot, buy it from alchemist shops, or make it yourself at an alchemy station. Also, Silver Hands and the Vigilants of Stendarr also drop these potions occasionally when they are killed.
Pray At A Shrine In Skyrim To Receive Blessing From A God
The real deal does not happen until this. Visit a shrine and as you pray at it, you’ll be cured not just of Sanguinare Vampiris, but all the diseases with you.
You May Also Ask A Vigilant Of Stendarr To Cure You
Those are the effective methods to escape Vampirism in “The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.” But, if you think they are ineffective and have failed you, the last resort is just to use console commands. Start by opening up the console as you play the game. Then, enter the “showracemenu” command into the console and type “setstage 000EAFD5 10” if you have Sanguinare Vampiris.
