WTF is with these Vampires?
I just started a new game, I am ONLY LEVEL SEVEN (as in 7) and I have only killed the first dragon at the Watchtower. When I go back to Whiterun there are like FIVE MASTER VAMPIRES who are just merking the whole god damn town. I mean they kill everyone who can die in just a minute, which breaks several quest. These vampires are so OVERLY POWERFUL that they can kill me in a few hits, but I have to hit them like 1,000 times to knock a dent in their health at all...

Did I mention that I am only level 7 and this is a new game with no Vampire mods of any kind? What gives?

Difficulty does not affect on enemies in any way. Only player character is affected by those changes.

5 master vampires? You would not see that many even in level 70. Either you have some very badly planned mod in your load order, completely busted load order with extreme effects or something is wrong with your master files.

If it is about a mod, then it might not be a vampire mod directly. Do you have any general enemy mods?

Get the following mods:

run for your lives

when vampires attack

These mods make town npcs run inside during attacks until you and the city guards kill them.

Yeah... lets pretend that I didn't start this thread to talk about Difficulty...

I cannot enter Whiterun at all, and this is a brand new game. When I enter, there is just a war going on. The whole town is at the front gate, and there are Master Vampires EVERYWHERE. This is ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥t in its truest form, in a few seconds half the town is dead, and a few second later I am dead. I can kill a dragon, but I cant even touch these damn Vampires, they are so strong they just kill everyone, and with ME and the TOWN attacking them, they just don't die. Now when I load my save and enter, they have a bunch of Death Hounds too... WTF?

If it makes you feel any better I had it happen to me somewhere around the same level. I went back into Whiterun after dark and I don't think they were all Master Vampires but I know at least one of them was and there was 5 or 6 enemies total upon entering the city. My game only had an ore texture mod and the bank of skyrim mod at the time. After a couple of times dying to them I just went and picked up the "when vampires attack" mod and problem solved.

I finally managed to survive the ordeal... It took me, all of the guards, the towns people, the two Alik'r, and all three of the traveling Khajiit, to kill all of the Vampires and Death Hounds... I am now level 8.

It was the middle of the day, also. Is that normal?

And Menacing, I have "when vampires attack, and run for your lives" and it didn't stop it?

hey, guys

i'm pretty much new to the game, i understand all the stuff with the vampires and all. but there's one thing i don't get

the trader guy in whiterun is just gone, i'm pretty sure he didn't get killed by vampires and i never found his body, but the shop remains locked at all times, even though his brother still walks around.

i got the merchant skill so i sell most of my loot to the smith people, but i'd just like to know what could've happened

I don't think I've ever seen more than 1 master rank vampire attacking during a vampire town attack encounter. sure I've seen 1 plus lower ranked minions, but never more than 1 actual master ranked....

Hmm. based on what I read about the mod when I installed it, the only thing I can figure is that the game thinks that you had gone to the trigger point and started the quests thereby causing the mod to not take effect. At any rate I'm glad you were able to survive it all.

Not a mod?
They sure got it in for you LOL!!
'No vampire attack' mod I use, this only last until starting dawnguard in earnest.
Had no attacks now level 25 in new game.

There is more than one thing you don't get. Have you ever heard of starting your own thread?

my apologies.
