In the continuation of our Skyrim Dawnguard review we last wrote about killing the Boneyard Keepers, and following that quest we touched on the necessities for Skyrim patch 1.7 and possible fixes for the DLC. After leaving the Soul Cairn we looked for a Vampirism cure, considering we went the Dawnguard route and only became a vampire to enter the Soul Cairn, and since then we started the Seeking Disclosure quest. Today we wanted to explain a little about Seeking Disclosure within the first Skyrim DLC.
When you first start playing the Seeking Disclosure quest in Skyrim Dawnguard you also start a journey to finding Auriel’s Bow, and to find its location you first need the Blood and Dragon Elder Scrolls. After the Moth Priest, Dexion Evicus, read the first Elder Scroll he then told us he needed two more, and this includes a number of objectives that will take you to the Collage of Winterhold.
The way you complete the Seeking Disclosure quest will depend on what you have done within Skyrim, and also if you have completed the main quest. On the PS3 version of Skyrim we had committed well over 500 hours and finished the main quest, so our situation had been different, but on the Xbox 360 version we had to start fresh because we wanted to review Dawnguard way before it arrived on the PS3 thanks to Microsoft’s timed exclusive. This meant we had to reach level 10 before being able to visit Fort Dawnguard, and didn’t have time to complete the main quest on the 360.
We have included a video below this article that will give you a walkthrough of both the Seeking Disclosure and Scroll Scouting quests, which the second happens when you sold one of the Elder Scrolls during the main quest. This will give you a visual look at how to complete these quests, but considering we hadn’t finished the main quest it meant a bit more work during our review.
When we visited the Collage of Winterhold it meant a trip to find Septimus Signus, which we had already done this quest on the PS3 version so it made things a bit quicker, although when you first make your way to Black Reach to find the Tower of Mzark it can take some time. After you have visited this place once it is much easier to access, which is thanks to the Great Lift at Mzinchaleft that allows you to have direct access to Black Reach in the future.
Once we went to the Tower of Mzark and solved the puzzle we had the other Elder Scroll, although considering we had not finished the main quest on the Xbox 360 we also Transcribed the Lexicon and handed it to Septimus Signus. Have a watch of the video below if you want to learn more about Seeking Disclosure and Skyrim Dawnguard. Unseen Visions is the next quest after finishing Seeking Disclosure and finding Dexion is now blind, so check back soon for more details on this and we’d love to hear your thoughts on Dawnguard in the comments.
