12 Skyrim DLC Dawnguard facts
With just a few days to go until what is shaping up to be one of the best days when it comes to new game and extra content releases, we thought we would discuss 12 facts regarding the Skyrim Dawngaurd DLC for those who are not yet fully up to date with what’s known so far. However, because the new content is still in beta some of what we know could change, although since Bethesda has since officially announced that the DLC will go ahead on June 26 they have made no mention of any alterations.
We have already taken a look at the skill trees for Vampires and Werewolves along we asking if you will be choosing good over evil, so let’s take a look at those 12 facts that have become available for all to digest.
The first is on Dragonbone weapons, which can be crafted at any forge. We have already discussed these weapons along with how much better they will be once you start to pimp those weapons up like you have in the past with other weapons. Then there are the new crossbows, while they are more powerful (which is needed for those tougher enemies) they have a slower reload time, so you have to be prepared for the trade-off.
You can soon involve yourself in combat while on horseback, you will be able to use a range of weapons but don’t try to use any spells because it’s not going to happen. If you decide to join Dawngaurd to fight the evil Vampire Lord you can then enter Fort Dawnguard, this will give you a range of new weapons and armor.
If you do wish to side with the Vampires you can then enter Castle Volkihar, here you will be able to use blood potions and vampiric powers. Legendary Dragons will now be in this DLC, these creatures are tougher than those you have fought before, which will make those fights much more interesting.
You can learn new Dragon Shouts once you have had an encounter with Dumehviir who’s an undead dragon. Once you have learned these new shouts you can summon Dumehviir while the second will take the life force from your foe.
There’s also a range of other enemies including Armoured Trolls, Bonemen, Boneyard Keepers, Death Hounds, Gargoyles and Wrathmen. While these all sound great we can’t help feel a little excited knowing that you will now be able to visit Soul Cairn, which is a plane of Oblivion. Once there you can free Arvak, from there you will be able to summon this undead horse at will no matter what region you’re in.
Finally you can now recreate your character while at The Ratways at Riften, you can change many features but your race and gender will have to stay the same.
There’s still so much more to Dawngaurd, but we’re certain that tens or hundred of videos will be uploaded to YouTube once Tuesday comes, not only to share important information but to also gloat to PC and PS3 owners who have to wait another month for the first Skyrim DLC – although PC owners won’t care much because they have the creation Kit.
