I bought Skyrim just by itself on Steam, no DLCs. I'm level 59, walking through Falkreath, when a guard just talks to me and starts the quest. I entered Dayspring Canyon but haven't done anything else, so who knows, maybe it's all buggy or something but it seems that I can play it so far. I'm not really complaining, but it's strange. When I go to the page for Dawnguard on Steam, it doesn't tell me I own it. I think it would say that I had it even if it was given to me as a gift. Anyone know what's up with this?
I also, all of a sudden , have Dawnguard, without having purchased it from steam, though I do have the Hearthfire DLC, and have been looking for reasons as to why I have Dawnguard, when I haven't baught it, and have no intention of buying it because of all the bug reports I have read about.
It was a steam update error, if you owned skyrim when the update happened it downloaded dawnguard onto your pc...because the lucky people that had finished the update had the files, steam couldnt remove them, and thus they got dawnguard for free, i count myself as one of those lucky guys ;)
Same here. I suddenly got Dawnguard and can make 100 level Skills go "Legendary". I thought I got misteriously upgraded to the "Legendary Edition" because, I don't know, I am a good customer or whatever, a kind of reward... But then I couldn't find anything related to "Heartfire" or "DragonBorn", so... I guess that's it!
Legendary skills and difficulty comes from the last patch, sometimes Steam makes Skyrim free to play for a few days maybe that adds the dlc for people who own the base game (hopefully not as that could potentially mess up peoples saves). Never had Steam without the Anthology though so don't know.
I have the ordinary Skyrim v with no DLC yet I have been able to start and finish dawnuard questline. if I were to get dawnguard DLC would it do anything? Same with fighting 1st dragonborn,taming amd riding dragons ,and building my own house. Ive done that too. is there still a reason to get a DLC at all?
