I recently bought the legendary edition of Skyrim. While trying to start the Dawnguard DLC quest, when it said to "speak with the leader of the Dawnguard", I tried to complete that objective but every time I try to speak with the Dawnguard leader, he keeps attacking me. Does anyone know how I can stop that from happening?
On assumption of you playing PC I have the answer! Go to console commands (Default Hotkey: ~ Key) click on Isran (while console command is open) and type
setav aggression 0
or if that fails open Console Commands and type
Hope this helped!
You can try resetting Isran.
Go back to Skyrim, rest for 30 days in-game time, and try again. This will ensure Isran and everything in his map area are reset.
Don't know if you've fixed it but,what I did when the Dawnguard attacked me-in the middle of the questline-was going to Riften, hitting a guard, putting sword away, get arrested and paid 40 gold for the assault. It worked immediately. Takes a few minutes to try, depending on if you instant travel or walk to Fort Dawnguard.
