Skyrim Dawnguard brings Serana affection

When we first started playing Skyrim it didn’t enter our mind about getting married, although as you progress through the game and hear about benefits like a free house it starts to appeal to you. Then you start to look around at the lovely ladies, or men, within Skyrim and think about marriage. Most gamers have a favorite from this world and when we first started playing the Skyrim DLC, Dawnguard, we couldn’t help but like the sound of Serana even if she is a vampire.

Choosing between the vampires and Dawnguard in Skyrim — we posted a few days ago about the moment you have to make a choice in Dawnguard, if you don’t want to read any spoilers then stop reading and jump to the comments, and we decided to hunt vampires but this choice had been harder thanks to Serana. We wanted to play the good part in Dawnguard, which meant hunting vampires, but at the same time being on the opposite side of Serana didn’t sound like fun considering how nice she looked and sounded. You can of course create another save file and play Dawnguard a different way in the future, which is recommended for getting the most out of the DLC.

We continued on our path of helping the Dawnguard and started recruiting friends to join the battle against the vampires, and after a few quests the good news is Serana returned and plans to help the Dawnguard thanks to her father, the vampire lord Harkon, turning evil over the years thanks to a desire to control the sun and make the vampires much stronger.

The choice to join the vampires or Dawnguard had been made before the Skyrim DLC released, for a number of players, but we wonder how many gamers had their minds changed after helping Serana escape? Let us know if this happened to you and also your feelings about Serana, do you love or hate her character?

Interestingly there have been massive forum threads started on the subject of Serana and how some people hate her, and compare her to their wife in Skyrim. This shows that Bethesda has succeeded when it comes to immersing gamers inside a world that lets you explore mountains, get married, cook food, create armor and weapons, buy a house, and a lot more. Now that we’re heading towards next-generation hardware we hope that more developers create something worthwhile like Skyrim, rather than loads of yearly made for profit titles.

If you have played Skyrim Dawnguard share your feelings about Serana, is she your new favorite lady of Skyrim? If you’re a PS3 player that has been following the news surrounding Dawnguard, then let us know if you want to be part of the vampires or Dawnguard when the DLC launches for you later this month.

Found this thread by accident but glad I did. Serana is the best. When I took her back to her house and found out what that’s all about I was thinking why didn’t I just kill that chick but she’s really grown on me.

Personally, I thought Serana was just a wet dream made up for the male players. Its unfortunate that a lot of the other characters (especially in the Dawnguard) did not have as much depth, or should I say detail – depth is a bit too flattering.

I would get married to serana because she is really the only one who doesn’t have the personality of a dead giraffe

Serana all the way. She is a great companion to have above all possible ones because most of the time and if something wants to kill you she’ll kill it before it gets a chance too. If I could marry her I would. XD

Please note that I did not find this, and am not taking ay credit for it but simply spreding the word. You don’t have to choose between Serana and another companion if you want the other still. Follow these instructions to have Serana and any other companion you want: You must have already gotten the moth preist (dosent matter what side your on as long as you freed him. Make sure Serana refuses to leave you, and go to the companions. (Note: must not have done the quest “proving honor”) and talk to farkas. It will say your follower has… Read more »

With Serana, Bethesda has finally started to inject more personality and dialogue into the companions. We sometimes spend hundreds of hours with these companions. The fact that in Skyrim and Fallout, the companions are given only half a dozen lines of dialogue is a gross oversight on their part. At least Serana is a step in the right direction, comenting occasionally on her surroundings and situation. Plus she’s gorgeous and has a sweet voice, which makes dungeon crawling a lot less lonely.

i hate serena…i feel like she has very little personality for a vampire at least and seems weak. To me as a female gamer she seems just like a hook to bring males into the game. I would prefer if you had the option of another male counterpart like Agmaer. I wouldnt mind at all except she is forced upon you so much and dismisses your current follower..which is really a pain 😀

Serena is one of the cooler parts of Dawnguard, I agree. Her rich dialog options that open up as the story progresses and based on your choices really shine. Equally awesome are the fresh dungeon designs and clever fights. All in all it’s a great DLC – can’t wait to see what they do next. 😀
