How to defend against Vampire's Draining attacks?
I'm sick of these godd@m$ vampires sucking away my life and infecting me with their vampire disease. I've only been able to defend myself using Spellbreaker as a shield, but I don't have the necessary perks to move while drawing it. I've already learned to use Stendarr's Aura and Vampire's Bane. But it's still annoying to keep them at bay. Is there a status you have to reach to become immune to draining spells? The same can be said for the dragons' attacks too.

Magic resist get to 85% and they will do very little damage.

Is that part of the Restoration perks tree?

The reason I'm asking is because I'm one a 'training mission' before I get Auriel's Bow. I want to be a worthy champion for Serana even though I'm already married with kids.

Well any enchanted apparel that protects you from diseases will do, as well becoming a werewolf makes you immune to diseases. As for countering their spells, I use the unrelenting force shout to push them back and score a few hits on them while they're down, significantly lowering their health when they get back up.

if you are a breton that 25%+ aleration tree has 30% and the shield of solitude is 30% thats how i get to 85 other then that enchanting gear will work.

Agent of Mara is another 15% magic resist.

I just buy potions of cure disease and visit temples/shrines regularly. As long as you keep only one or two vampires aiming the drain on you at a time it shouldn't cause too much damage. (One way to regulate this would be to use whirlwind sprint and heal/shoot while they're catching up.) And about dragon attacks, you can interrupt a dragon shout if you shoot his head with an arrow or lightning bolt. It also works with the second word of unrelenting force and the first word of dragonrend.

Really? I recently bought a necklace of 100% disease immunity! What luck! And I thought it was only coincidence that I was finding the Amulet of Stendaar when I was trying to finish my collection of shrines.

I'll got Spellbreaker from the Daedric lord of Pestilence. It works very well when I'm defending but those vampires are so mobile. Right now my tactics are conjuring a Dremora Lord, Atronachs, and raising Stendaar's Aura when I can detect them from afar, and arming myself with Spellbreaker. I neglected my magical and archery skills for so long I can't get the quickdraw on them.

I think you should pay attention to isran. he says use your crossbow vampires are deadly at point blank Oh and if you are the cheating type press ` (key beside your number 1 and !) and type tgm (toggle god mode)

Well, spellbreaker is a good idea. You could also bring someone else along (like lydia or someone) to take the drain for you. Become a werewolf or visit shrines and carry cure disease potions.

Hi everybody! I've finished the fight against Harkon. I couldn't perk up fast enough to become resistant to the drain, but I had Auriel's Bow and enough healing potions to get job done. I was annoyed that I had to redo the fight because a glitch made the character unkillable when it approached the end of the life meter. I armed myself with Dawnbreaker and the Mace of Molag Bal, then went midieval on his ♥♥♥! You read me? Midieval on his ♥♥♥!

Afterwards I returned to the Soul Cairn to bring Valerica back home and that's the end! As a plus, thanks to the bugs of dressing up mannequins, I have two - make that 2 - sets of ancient Falmer armor! So after finishing my career as the amorous vampire hunter, I have become the White Knight on a Phantom Horse! I bought a house in Windhelm - where I adopted my first child - and solved the Butcher murders with my fellow housecarl - Calder. But I'll call him Watson because he fits the bill. I disarmed the Butcher with my Shout, then my boy took him out! Yeah!
