Do the random vampire attacks end when you finish the main Dawnguard quest on the Vampire Hunters (Dawnguard) side?

  • On the flip-side, do the random Dawnguard attacks end after finishing the Vampire side?

Yes, the attacks do end after finishing the main quest.

Tangentially, the attacks will begin as soon as you install Dawnguard, not after beginning Dawnguard-related quests. Some consider this a misfeature enough that a mod was quickly created to delay the attacks until the start of the main Dawnguard quest (Dawnguard - No Vamp Attacks - WIP by IsharaMeradin, no longer available, Wayback Machine link). It’s that bad.

More recent mods to solve this problem are:

… and so on. Basically, just search your favourite mod repository for dawnguard attack or quest delay and you’ll come up with a bunch of mods, if you’re interested in delaying or disabling the vampire attacks.

  • That link is now dead. However, if you are trying to prevent random NPCs from dying in vampire attacks, Protect your People is a much more thorough solution which does not require disabling the attacks at all. (This is obviously useless if you "just don't like the vampires showing up.")
