Skyrim Dawnguard: Necessities for patch 1.7

There is certainly a need for Skyrim Dawnguard to receive patch 1.7 on the Xbox 360, which would fix bugs some gamers have been experiencing, although we wonder what this would mean to PS3 players that haven’t even had the 1.6 update? We expect the first Skryim Dawnguard patch to arrive soon, so it makes sense to see a new update for all systems, which would allow PS3 and PC users to download the first Skyrim DLC on July 26, the hoped for release date, with fixes for bugs found by Xbox 360 gamers and developers.

We have been playing Skyrim Dawnguard on the Xbox 360 for almost a month, and while we downloaded the DLC on day one our free time to review, and play the new content has been limited. We have also taken our time to explore every inch of Dawnguard and plan on playing as both the vampires and Dawnguard with different save files. After spending this much time in the game you would think we found loads of bugs, although this is not the case but we do know a number of players that have found problems with Dawnguard.

What does Skyrim patch 1.7 need to fix in Dawnguard and the rest of the game? The only issue we found in Dawnguard so far has been floating bodies, and also after dropping some items they are left floating in mid-air. While this isn’t a big deal it could do with a fix, but there are some problems others have experienced that stops them from playing certain quests in Skyrim, which have not been fixed at the time of writing. There has been a number of reports of broken quests although this could be fixed in some circumstances if miscellaneous quests would auto complete when the final quest is achieved. Do you have broken quests in Skyrim?

New features within patch 1.7 — it seems unlikely that new features will come in the next patch considering the amount of time being taken up with Dawnguard, and launching a new patch to fix issues that still remain, but this hasn’t stopped some gamers publishing wish lists for new features to come in this patch or a future update. We’ve seen requests for moving hair, a toggle for headgear, capes to move more rather than be completely stiff, seasonal weather, and footprints in snow. What new features would you like to see added to Skyrim and Dawnguard?

It is worth noting that a new patch went live for Skyrim within the last 24 hours, which some people are claiming is for Dawnguard. We’d like to point out that this update has only been for non-english versions of the game so far, although we’ll update you when patch v1.7 goes live for english versions of Skyrim.

Ide like “the gift” quest to be fixed so I can turn my spouse into a vampire. Because no matter what I do, Vingolmo will not give me the quest. ( i am married to Camilia Valerius )
And this isnt a competition rockstar nor is it a war between the Xbox Gamers, and the PS3 movie buffs. I hope we ALL get a equally good patch that cleans up some of the mess in Skyrim. =]

i’m sorry to say but the time us ps3 and pc users have to wait for this dlc, it should be free regardless of the microsoft exlusive.

I have 49 of the original 50 trophies but can’t complete the civil war quest because there is no one at the stormcloak camp to report to…just the floating arrow (PS3 with latest patches). I would prefer not to start over with around 150 hours invested. 🙁

In short, we’re all saying to Bethesda… Fix the exsisting bugs as a priority, perhaps before making pacts with Microsoft, and we’d all be happier to accept this overpriced add-on. Just a thought.

Let us Marry Serana and let us get a divorce and remarry. Let vampires alter their appearance in The Ragged Flagon and Let arrows NOT phase through targets that are more than 50 feet away. Thank you.

I believe making requests to Bethesda makes it a possibility. Lots of the major parts in Skyrim were created because of the existence of requests. But there is no way that Bethesda can listen to all of our requests because some requests stand alone and aren’t backed down. In the interview with Tod Howard, before Skyrim was released, he showed that our requests could become part of the game. The thing is that it doesn’t matter if we put out a request or not, so I don’t see the reason why we shouldn’t put out our feelings on the subject. Whether we are Xbox 360… Read more »

I would like it if you could actually go into first person view when you are a werewolf vampire lord, I don’t like how I can’t control my character as well when he’s in third person.

You say ‘Hoped for’ release date. That’s rubbish. It was a ‘Promised’ release date.
I’m so pissed at Bethesda. Surely they know ps3 owners are fuming?

I want them to make it so that once you hit level 81 couriers will still come to give you quest related notes, I’m 81 (without the oghma infinium glitch) and can’t do some quests I’ve skipped over. (After the main story + main questlines I leveled like crazy, used trainers that could follow + did the pickpocket method for my money back on some skills xD)

Make weapons thrown with telkinesis deal bonus damage, and make them equipable like arrows so you can throw them from your inventory, or just create a separate item throwing spell for things from your inventory. That costs less magicka. Telekinesis costs too damn much. But being able to throw Daedric daggers at people would be awesome. And have the damage when thrown modified by whatever magic field it is in rather than weapon skill. Thatd be the coolest thing for mages and mage-thiefs/assassins. And give it sneak damage. That would be the ultimate badass stealth mage ability.

I for one am growing tired of being screwed over by timed-exclusive dlc.
We should show Bethesda (and all the other companies) that we aren’t
going to put up with this. If we all wait and don’t buy it when it comes
out for ps3/pc then they will have to drop the price on it early. Maybe
then they will see that their deal with Microsoft really isn’t worth it because they will be losing money from ps3/pc users.

I’m still waiting for a broken quest to be fixed in the original storyline — I can’t complete the game until fixed. I am unable to find Mirabelle Ervine at the College of Winterhold in the quest to get the Staff of Magnus. (360 version) Help Bethesda! There are lots of folks online with the same hangup!

They need to fix the generic “go to RANDOM LOCATION and KILL RANDOM CREATURE” quests where the creature is already dead and the quest arrow just points over the body and its impossible to get around on non-pc consoles.
I’ve been stuck on the first of these quests from the Companions since I got the game – six patches and a DLC and its still not fixed

Seeing as how patch 1.6 hasn’t come out for the PS3 yet I could care less about all you xbox players getting a patch to fix bugs in the Dawngaurd DLC. PS3 players should already have patch 1.6 which hopefully will be a better version than the one the xbox players got.

I’d like to see critical hits when you get a headshot with a bow. I always find myself fighting some Bandit Chief with at least five arrows clean through his head and still roaring on like it’s nothing.
