Once you’ve reached level 10 try speaking to a Hold Guard in a city - such as Windhelm - (or even to an Orc known as Durak, who you can find walking outside Fort Dawnguard itself). They’ll talk about a reforming group of Vampire hunters known as Dawnguards.

You now need to find the cunningly hidden entrance to the Dawnguard Fort and this can be found if you look on the map for Riften and then see those mountains to the right of it? On the East side of those mountains is a footbridge and just north of that are two fires and a crack in the mountain that leads to the DLC missions (see the screenshot above).

Once you’ve entered the area, run down the snowy path and you can chat to a man called ‘Agmaer’ who’s standing by the water’s edge. If you keep following the path, you’ll eventually arrive at Fort Dawnguard itself, so run inside the fort and head inside.

Once you’re here, speak to ‘Isran’ in the centre of the room to be given your first real main quest in this DLC. You can also speak to ‘Isran’ to learn additional [Heavy Armour] skills for 430+ gold a time. Vigilant Tolan will now be ushered into the conversation and this will mark the beginning of the next main quest in the Dawnguard DLC.

Skyrim is the homeland of the Nords, a fierce and proud warrior people who are well suited for the bitter cold and mountainous terrain which defines the land. Now scarred by civil war, Skyrim faces its darkest days with the return of the legendary dragons and their leader, the World-Eater Alduin. The future of Skyrim and even the lands beyond hangs in the balance, as the people await the prophesized Dragonborn, a hero born with the power of The Voice and the only one who can contend with the dragons. You are that Dragonborn; your task is to investigate why the dragons are returning, and discover a way to defeat them. At the same time, you’re free to explore Skyrim at your own pace, uncovering its many wonders along the way.
