My character seems to reset each time I change to a vampire lord and back again. I am still considered a vampire by everyone in the game except for Lord Harkon and his court. The only physical change that occurs is that my eyes are no longer glowing. I think the problem may be that I am changed to the version of vampirism that came before Dawnguard. How can I fix the problem or keep my character from reverting?

Forgot to add this earlier, I am running Skyrim on a PC.

    I doubt the problem is being infected before Dawnguard, but if you like you can try curing yourself by becoming a werewolf or by giving a filled black soul gem to Falion in Morthal.

  • I tried to do that several times with no luck. Thanks for the input though.

    Got any mods running? Might be one of them.

  • When you say 'changed to' if you mean you did it through the console instead of game mechanics then its likely your game is just in a bad state now. I am not sure short of more console fiddling if you can get it to a normal state again.

  • @kotekzot Yes, I do have some mods and am currently trying to figure out if any of them are causing the problem.

Background info on how I came upon my solution: (If it's TLDR, just skip directly to the solution further below.)

I experienced a similar issue and have been able to fix it. In my case, it is because the Companions turned me into a Werewolf from being a Vampire Lord. I had none of the Vampire's abilities and weaknesses, except Resist Disease 100% and I still have the ability to turn into a Vampire Lord. While at the same time, I also have the ability to turn into a Werewolf (Beast Form) and have the Werewolf 'Resist Disease 100%' ability (yes, I had two Resist Disease 100% abilities), making me some sort of messed-up Vampire-Werewolf hybrid. Clearly, something must have messed up when the Companions turned me into a werewolf.

Like what happened in your case, Lord Harkon and his court won't recognize me as a vampire. That is except for Serana, which recognizes me as a vampire and doesn't give me the conversation option to turn me back into a Vampire Lord. Entering the player.setrace <player race>racevampire console command gets me recognized as a vampire by the court (Serana still won't give me the conversation option to turn me back into a Vampire Lord), but I still had none of the Vampire abilities and weaknesses I previously mentioned.

Solution (or: TLDR)

  • I entered the player.setrace <player race>racevampire console command (I'm not sure of an alternate method for the console command for non-PC players, but you could try either turning into a Vampire, vanilla-style or just continue to Falion as I will further explain below.)
  • Get Falion to cure me of my Vampirism, through the Rising at Dawn quest (which also cured me of my Lycanthropy, for some weird reason).
  • Go back to Serana, who now recognizes me as a non-Vampire and now gives the conversation option to turn me back into a Vampire Lord.
  • After I let Serana turn me back into a Vampire Lord, I am now not a messed-up Vampire-Werewolf hybrid. I now have all the abilities and weaknesses of a Vampire and have no Werewolf abilities anymore. Damn Companions.

Have you used console command to set your race in game? For example if you are wood elf.

player.setrace woodelfracevampire

Hope this helps!
