Not to be confused with Blood Potion.

Potion of Blood can be found in The Elder Scrolls V: Dawnguard. It is a healing potion used by vampires, as it supplements the consumption of human blood. Unlike most of the other potions found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, which have a basic design, the Potion of Blood is stored in an ornate corked vial.

Locations[edit | edit source]

Potions of Blood can be found throughout Castle Volkihar:

  • Several sit upon the tables of the main hall.
  • One can be found in Harkon's room.
  • One can be found in Valerica's Study.

In addition, three can be granted as a reward for completing various side quests for members of Harkon's court. The Potion of Blood is uncraftable.

  •  360   PS3  When drinking a Potion of Blood as a non vampire and then consuming an ingredient afterwards, a permanent vampire transformation will occur. This is the one of the very few ways to become a werewolf and a vampire at the same time. Falion of Morthal will not recognize this as a true vampire form, and will not provide a cure. Feeding will not be an option, resulting in gradual stage 4 vampirism. Becoming a werewolf will not fix this transformation. The only cure is as follows: Become a vampire lord to acquire full vampirism status. Falion will then be able to cure the disease. On the PC and PS3 this can also occur if Serana (and maybe other followers) drinks a potion of blood.

Another way is to use console commands.
