Are the deadly powers of the vampire not worth the price that must be paid? Read on to find out how to cure vampirism in Skyrim.
If it’s been less then three days since you contracted the disease of vampirism from being hit by a vampire in combat, then you can still avoid turning into one of them by drinking a cure disease potion or using one of the Shrines of Talos outside of Whiterun or Dragonsreach, which will cure you of all diseases.
If it’s been more than three days since you first contracted vampirism and you’re now a fully fledged vampire, the condition is now too far gone to be remedied with common magic spells or potions, or even the healing effects of the Shrine of Talos. Almost all mortals who find themselves in this state end up living out the rest of their lives as vampires. But for those who are determined, there is a way to obtain release from this state, if you can just find someone with the knowledge of what must be done…
Just like in the real world, a good thing to do if you’ve got problems in Skyrim is go and talk to a barman. Ask any Inn Keeper or Bartender about rumors and they’ll tell you that a man named Falion in Morthal is studying vampires.
Make you way to the settlement of Morthal, which you’ll find east of Fort Snowhawk. Once you arrive, find and talk to Falion about how one can rid oneself of full vampirism. He’ll tell you that there is a ritual that can accomplish what you seek, but it will require the use of a filled black soul gem. He can sell you such a gem, but you’ll need to fill it yourself.
Make sure you know the South Trap spell or have in your possession a Soul Trap scroll. A black soul gem can only be filled with the soul of a person of one of the races; not an animal, monster, conjured creature or undead being. Any common bandit will suffice for this.
With a filled Black Soul Gem, return to Falion and tell him you’re ready to undergo the ritual. You are now free of vampirism.
