After arriving at the castle, Lord Harkon gives you the option to become a vampire lord, but when I accept the offer Lord Harkon disappears. The cut scene continues though and I have the power to transform. However, I can't leave the castle without speaking to Lord Harkon. How can I find him or make him reappear?


If you're on PC, try the command 02003ba8.moveto player (assuming Dawnguard has ID 02 in your load order, which it should) to move him to you; if that doesn't work try prid 02003ba8, disable, enable, kill, resurrect, moveto player. If you're not playing on PC your best bet is to reload to a previous save.


I discovered the problem was I had already been infected as a vampire and for some reason that was causing problems in the script. Simply taking a potion of cure diseases fixed the problem.

  • Have you managed to reproduce the bug while infected? – kotekzot Nov 19 '12 at 17:37
  • Yes, Several times. I'm not sure if this is a problem my game in particular or the game itself. – m.n.wiser Nov 19 '12 at 20:56
