Legendary Dragon requirements in Skyrim Dawnguard

After playing Skyrim for hundreds of hours we had dragon bones stored all over our house in Whiterun, and some nice Dragonbone armor, but hearing about Skyrim Dawnguard made us want the DLC from day one. Now if you are at a level high enough you can find a Legendary Dragon within Skyrim Dawnguard.

Some people state that you need to be as high as level 78 to see Legendary Dragons, although we cannot confirm exactly what level you need to be, but expect it to be pretty high and one of the videos below thinks it is possible from level 70. Some gamers have been grinding for levels just so they can get this achievement for taking down a Legendary Dragon, which can ruin the fun when you are pushing for higher levels as fast as possible. One way we did this had been collecting ore and Smithing, or using magic to turn iron ore to gold, which can then be used to create items to sell.

There are some players that have used cheats after installing Skyrim Dawnguard like the Oghma infinium exploit, although we have not tried this ourselves, it is believed to still work and hasn’t been fixed under any current patch. Again we cannot confirm or deny this thanks to not trying it, and to be honest using cheats like this ruin the game in our opinion.

Have you seen a Legendary Dragon after downloading Skyrim Dawnguard, and if so where did you first see one? Personally we couldn’t find a Legendary Dragon until after level 79, and for us it had been about seeing something we’ve paid for rather than the achievement. The first time we spotted one of these dragons had been just south of Riften, at Lost Tongue Overlook.

The first video below shows gameplay with a Legendary Dragon after installing Skyrim’s first DLC, and the second video explains the Skyrim Dawnguard Legend Achievement that’s unlocked after killing a Legendary Dragon, and also touches on Oghma infinium for those that want to know more. Have a watch of these videos and share a comment with details about your first encounter.
