When I joined the dawnguards side I got attack in capitol city's by vampires. This is how i attack, i went to whiterun and i found a vampire wearing some black robes and i went up to him and his name was Traveler??? and I talked to him and he said "Die DawnGuard" and he attacked me it happened in some city's mostly in whiterun i dont know why and something else happened its was worst i went to Falkreath and i found some vampires and they were attacking people near the Inn and some of them died thats why i dont really like going in city's. o_O
They mostly come at night... mostly. The vampire attacks on citys can happen any time of day, the Traveler is just weird though. If you use fast travel a lot try going to stables or places just outside the citys instead of the city itself as it usually gives you a little more time to react if the vampires do trigger and attack.
Yeah, the Traveler vampire is dispatched to eliminate the Dragonborn during your time with the Dawnguard. This encounter can occur anytime, (several times) between the missions of Bloodline and Kindred Judgment, if you joined the Dawnguard. Usually when you visit a town of a hold, the traveller will appear. Talk to you if you approach him, and will initiate a fight. It's always the same model.
After completing the Dawnguard questline, this, as well as the generic Vampire town raids, will no longer occur.

That's a relief to know, anyway. After installing a few basic mods, I started a game only to discover that one of them had enabled Dawnguard and Dragonborn, which I did not intend. Suddenly additional enemies were assailing me before I was strong enough to deal with them, and vampires were killing off important NPCs such as Belethor. I just don't want to keep playing if the latter must happen. It might be a fun challenge for veteran gamers with lightning-quick fingers, but for a relative newbie like me it's too much too soon.
A few people have tried resurrecting these NPCs as soon as they are discovered dead. This seems to work for Adrianne Avenicci, but in Belethor's case he won't trade in his shop anymore.
The proper response is probably never to enter a city, especially Whiterun, at night. I'll try to observe this precaution. However, I'm not above "cheating" by pre-emptively setting these characters as essential if there are no unwanted effects from it. Does anyone know whether this would work?
