  • Anyone else had this?

    On the 'PROPHET' questline in Dawnguard, having sucessfully released Dexion Evicus he heads back to Castle Dawnguard but on arrival everyone tries to kill him. Although you can still speak to him he just writhes around on the floor when you ask him to read the Elder Scroll?

    Tried re-loading to a couple of past saves but still always the same outcome.

    • If you don't have any spells strong enough to Pacify the Dawnguard you could try leaving the area for over three in-game days the area reset usually calms them down. It sounds like this (and  Dexion being the one attacking instead) could be somehow caused by taking Serana in to Forebears' Holdout with you and maybe the Vampires attacking Dexion while he's in the shield.

    • Ideal thank you. I don't suppose you could recommend a spell to pacify the Dawnguard?

      Sorry i'm a bit of a noobie!

    • The spell is called Pacify.  There's a lower level version called calm, but it might not be strong enough.

    • Blue text in a comment is a link to a wiki page so the word Pacify was a link to the spells page, blue text with a small white arrow is a link to an outside web site (so with those maybe hover the mouse over them to see where they go before clicking).

      For those spells to stand a chance of working you probably would of had to of put some work in to the Illusion skill though.

    • Thanks AzuraKnight, will give it a go. Should be ok with the Illusion skill.

    • Having gone through this twice, you need to rescue the priest alone. If you take Serena in with you, he will attack her and going back to the Dawn guard, everyone will attack him.  Taking a vampire in to rescue the priest adds the bug.

    • Levelled up in Illusion and gave the Pacify spell a try, no good unfortunately :( Also tried healing him but he justs starts trying to fight you again. This massively sucks. Played loads of quests since this bug so no chance of re-loading a save point.

      Is there any way you can re-start the Dawnguard questline without altering your main game?

    • He will level with you up to level fourty so you may need to duel cast the spell, i didn't notice before but your on the PC so you could try opening the console clicking on Dexion and trying one of the commands -

      setav aggression 0

      Or -

      addfac 0005A1A4 1

      Or -

      recycleactor

      There is a command to restart a quest but it's not very reliable (so only as a last resort) -

      resetquest DLC1VQ03Hunter

      I took Serana to the rescue him too and he attacks everyone in the Dawnguard everytime I arrive in the castle too but he still read the scroll so I doubt this is the solution.

    • I took Serana and he worked fine didn't attack anyone at all but bugs don't always trigger, it can also seem to be caused by finding Dexion outside of the barrier or a vampire being inside with him.

    • Absoute Legend AzuraKnight !!!

      Yep, the console command; "setavaggression 0" worked perfectly :)

      I am now on my way to Dawnguard supremacy!

      Huge thank you

    • I thought this thread would help but it angers me more! I dont have your fancy console commands! Help me!

    • The aggression command helped, but I don't get the talk option about the elder scroll.. any help?

    • I tried another way, trough finding out which stage I was at in the quest, then setting myself to a higher stage so the quest would be complete. If like me, your problem is that you don't have the option to talk about the elder scroll follow the instructiobs on this site. Nothing helped for me but this did. (IMPORTANT: Must be on PC because you need console command)

    • when going back to dawnguard after rescuing dexion, do not talk to isran, even if the quest tells you to talk to him. talk to Dexion first, Dexion will then read the elderscroll.

    • Just change the level.... it worked for me =)

    • I had the same problem today. Heres how I fixed it. I had Serana with me to saving the moth priest (which causes this bux?). Serana was with me all the time. I asked us to separate. Then talk.

    • The bug arises, due to the Moth pries being enslaved by the vampire and your companion attacking him, before you get the quest of defeating the enslaved Moth priest. If you bring Serana or Lydia does not matter. Defeat the vampires, go to the place where you can inactivate the barrier and inactivate it, making sure that neither you or your companion attack the priest, before you get the quest update, then you should be fine.

    • I swear, if they say "Where'd you come from?" ONE more time...!

    • That lunatic wouldn't stop atacking people. And worse, the last save before the prohet quest is like ten hours ago.

      I had to disable the priest, and then spawn another one. Which automatically triggered three quests, as if he had read the damn scroll already. And that's with all the unofficial patches.
