Rings of Blood Magic is a quest in The Elder Scrolls V: Dawnguard. This quest is only available if the Dragonborn chose to become a Vampire Lord at the end of the quest "Bloodline."

Background[edit | edit source]

The quest is initiated by talking to Castle Volkihar's resident alchemist, Feran Sadri. He will tell the Dragonborn that two powerful rings given to ancient Vampire Lords by Molag Bal have found their way to less favorable owners. Feran wants the Dragonborn to retrieve the rings to have them back in a Vampire Lord's hands.

The Ring of the Beast and the Ring of the Erudite are powerful rings that augment the Vampire Lord's special abilities while transformed and increases their attributes while in humanoid form.

Objectives[edit | edit source]

  • Find the Ring of the Beast.
  • Find the Ring of the Erudite.
  • Return to Feran Sadri.

Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

Go to the radiant locations marked in the journal, the ring will either be on a leveled boss enemy, or in a chest.

Possible locations[edit | edit source]

Note: If Dragonborn is installed, then the ring may be on Solstheim.

Click to see the list of bugs encountered
  • If a previously slain Dragon Priest is chosen as a bearer of one of the rings it may be impossible to complete as the body will have disappeared meaning the ring cannot be obtained.
  • If Dragonborn is installed and one of the rings is located in Solstheim, but have not travelled there before, there will be no quest marker on your map or compass in order to find them.
    • Solution: Start the "Dragonborn" quest and travel to Solstheim.
  • The Night Power Amulets may be at the same location as the rings.
  • If a previously slain Gauldurson from the quest "Forbidden Legend" is chosen as the bearer, the ring may be unobtainable because they don't respawn. (Geirmund's Hall, Saarthal, Folgunthur)
  • If Uttering Hills Cave is chosen as the location of one of the rings, the Dragonborn may find a quest marker hovering in Linwe's room but no ring, making the quest impossible to complete. A similar problem can occur if Dead Crone Rock is one of the ring locations.
    • Solution: Reload a save made before receiving the mission from Feran Sadri, and then initiate the quest again to be assigned a different ring location, one that does work.
  • If Hob's Fall Cave is selected as the location of one of the rings, there is a chance that the body of the Master Vampire on which the ring should be located will not be present. The quest marker will point deep underground, and the ring will be unobtainable.
    • Solution: Reload a save before entering the cave. When you enter it again, the ring-bearing body should be where it is supposed to be.
  •  PC   Possible solution for unobtainable rings:
    • Add the missing ring via console to the inventory (command "player.addItem ITEM_ID 1," where ITEM_ID is as follows: Ring of The Beast: 0200e7fd; Ring of the Erudite: 0200e7fe). Advance the quest stage via console. Try stages 10, 110, 120 (try the lower numbers first e.g. command "setstage DLC1RV08 110"). If all went well (and both rings are in possession), the Dragonborn should be able to report back to Castle Volkihar.
