Go for Dragonborn. Dawnguard was fun, but I'd say Dragonborn will last you a bit longer.
Sasuke Jul 20, 2013 @ 8:30pm 
Any difference to where it would benefit a Ranger over Mage/Warrior type?
Twisted Jul 20, 2013 @ 8:33pm 
well dawnguard has crossbows that are really over powered
Alucard Jul 20, 2013 @ 8:34pm 
None that I'm aware of. Dawnguard gives you crossbows, Dragonborn gives you all sorts of stuff.
Mr. J.D. Gumby Jul 20, 2013 @ 8:35pm 
Well, Dawnguard has Crossbows and the crafting of arrows, so you tend to get each tier of ammo in large quantities well before they start showing up in large enough stacks to be useful (and making is cheaper than buying, usually), assuming you've been perking up your Smithing, of course.

EDIT: The largest consideration is, IMHO, whether or not you want the content to be mixed into the main world (Dawnguard) or be self-contained (Dragonborn - except for the NPCs, who have a few items from DB, that give you the quest and the crew of the ship that takes you to Solstheim, all of the DLC's content is on Solstheim).

Hmm nice information gamers. ill have to give it some thought! thank you!

Power shouldn't matter. Any fool can open up the CK and edit a few values and save it as an esp.

You could also check out Falskaar over on the Nexus. Beats both honestly.

I would suggest Dragonborn mainly because its longer then dawnguard and adds a whole new island to explore

There was a similiar post, but this user summed it up best..

Everyone seems to go for Dragonborn, but I actually enjoyed Dawnguard far more. They're both outstanding DLC's, but I think it just depends on what you're going for.

- amazing storyline
- mostly-linear quests
- great and memorable characters
- some new shouts
- new open-world daedric plane to explore
- crossbows
- arrow crafting
- dragonbone weapons
- some new Dawnguard and vampire themed weapons and other goodies
- upgrades for werewolves and vampires
- one really awesome side quest that delves into Dwemer history

- 'meh' main storyline
- pretty good side quests
- nostalgia for Morrowind players
- a lot of base character upgrades (new perks)
- very open-world area to explore
- new linear daedric plane to explore
- half-♥♥♥♥♥ staff crafting
- some cool new weapons and armor sets
- new soundtrack based off of the Morrowind music
- half-♥♥♥♥♥ dragon riding along with a couple new shouts

So, in short, Dawnguard is for those who want a really good and compelling story with memorable characters and a fairly linear questline while Dragonborn is for those who just want to explore a new area and maybe have some nostalgia from Morrowind.

And if you're one for immersion, then just go with Hearthfire as it's really cheap and a great DLC for those who want more, well, immersion.

Thanks for that JR4D, I've been wondering the same thing and think I'm going to try Dawnguard now.

dawnguard if you wanna fight an ancient war between vampire slayer's and Vampire Lord's... and Lady's. Dragonborn if you wanna relive morrowind (sort of) and fight a dragon priest nearly 4000 year's old (i think.)
Arcamean Jul 20, 2013 @ 9:24pm 
To me, they're both worth purchasing, I would however buy Dawngard then Dragonborn.
Alucard Jul 20, 2013 @ 9:41pm 
Dragonborn doesn't let you "relive" Morrowind. Want to relive Morrowind? Go help Skywind production. No, Dragonborn is just awesome.
