For starters, if you haven't played the DLC and you don't want to risk any spoilers, it would be safest to not read on. Again SPOILERS may be ahead. Now that's out of the way, I have a question for those that have had more time to play around with Dawnguard.

Is it possible to finish as a vampire and sided with the Dawnguard? I've played through the Vampire side of the game, but I wasn't a huge fan of the vampire faction. I've tried the Dawnguard side and was amazed to find out it's possible to become a vampire again before entering the Soul Cairn during the Chasing Echoes quest. The problem is a few quests later during Kindred Judgement, I need to speak to Isran in order to continue. Because I'm a vampire he will not speak to me.

Is there anyway to stay a Vampire Lord and destroy Harkon's court?

Yes. Because Serana shares Harkon's blood, having been granted Vampirism directly through Molag Bal, when you ask her to feed on you, you get the same powers as if Harkon had done it. Cool fool (talk) 01:34, June 29, 2012 (UTC)

Can you ask her that after being cured once? Because I cannot seem to advance the story line as long as my character is a vampire. XxSick DemonxX (talk) 06:50, June 30, 2012 (UTC)

Yes, ask any time after soul cairn and you can cure/infect yourself as much as you want. ☞</span> ✰ is Lazy (talk) ✰ 22:47, June 30, 2012 (UTC)

I agree the dawnguard faction is somewhat more likeable... but why would you join dawnguard if you want to be a vamp ... not the vamps .. a few useful items from vamp faction quests/blood of the ancients/blood potions ect... if you want to be a vamp the bonus if from joining them.. The end is the same no matter what you do anyways, so choose who will give better bonus for your character. A vampire ,especially mage, should join vamps . A warrior the dawnguard.

Yeah, I know it sounds odd. I think it's just because faction choices were absolutes, and with the exception of Serana the vampire characters were evil. If there had been a little more variety, I might have sided with the vamps because I don't have anything against them just for being vampires.
