Beyond Death
Complete "Beyond Death"

Story Related and Can Not be Missed.

You will achieve this trophy after you have completed the quest, "Beyond Death" during either the Vampire questline or the Dawnguard questline.

During the story, after you have completed the quest Awakening, you will begin Bloodline in which you take Serana to her home, so go to your map marker nearby and take the small boat over. You will be permitted access inside the vampire keep here. Once in, continue forward and you will speak with Harkon, the vampire lord who grants you immortality by turning you into a vampire if you wish. If you refuse, he banishes you away and says he will kill you on sight if you return. The game will arc here following either the vampire questline or the path for the Dawnguard.

Dawnguard Questline
A New Order

After being banished, return to Fort Dawnguard and tell Isran what transpired. Now you are asked to go recruit two members for the Dawnguard. Each will become marked on your map and after you have spoken with both members, you will be tasked with helping them before they join. Sorine Jurand wants a dwemer artifact from her lost bag, but you can persuade her otherwise. Gunmar wants your help killing a bear he's tracking so enter the nearby dungeon and defeat the bears inside. After recruiting both members, return to Isran.

Prophet
After the recruitment, you are tasked with seeking a Moth Priest to read the Elder Scroll that Serana has and brought to Fort Dawnguard to help you stop Harkon. Go to Winterhold College after speaking with Serana about where might be a good place to search. Here you will learn that the priest was seen by the Dragon Bridge and ask for him here. They point you south so continue on and you will find the wreckage and a vampire holding a note saying he's been taken. Go and rescue the priest and defeat the vampires inside. Now return to Isran and report the findings and learn what the scroll says. This will start the next quest, Chasing Echoes.

Chasing Echoes

For this quest, you are tasked with finding another scroll that Serana's mother should be holding. She is said to be hiding possibly inside the courtyard of Castle Volkihar. Go here and swim around to the back side of the castle and you will find a hidden route inside undetected, through some skeletons. Defeat your enemies, and encounter more gargoyles on the interior as well. You will have to complete a puzzle at the courtyard itself with a moondial. Find the three moon fragments scattered around the area and set them in their places on the dial until it turns and the stairway is opened. You will finally come to a chamber containing a laboratory of her mother, and you are now told to activate the Soul Cairn.

For this, you need several ingredients found around the room and her mother's journal. The journal is located on the bookshelf on the back wall, past the table containing the bones. On the table you will find a bowl of finely ground bonemeal which is needed. Also, on the table before the steps is the soul gems you need. The final ingredient, purified void salts are up the steps, and around the corner on the shelf on the back wall in a bowl. Empty these into the marker vessel and the soul Cairn will open. Now the final part is to become partly soul trapped or become a vampire by Serana. After your choice, enter the Soul Cairn and complete the quest.

Beyond Death

Inside the Soul Cairn, progress across the waste past the souls and you will find a marker leading to Serana's mother trapped inside a shield created by the Keepers. After you and Serana explain the plight, you are asked to kill the three boneyard keepers to free Valerica, Serana's mother and acquire the elder scroll she possesses. Go to each of the marked locations and find the giant keepers and defeat them now. The last one is a bit tricky to find, but use the teleporting devices on the ground and you will make your way to the top of one of the castle ruins in the Soul Cairn and locate it. Now return to Valerica and get the Elder Scroll. Follow her through another chamber and you will face more skeleton enemies and a dragon named, Durnehviir. After leaving, you will find that he awaits you and asks to come with you, allowing you to summon him throughout Tamriel and Skyrim through a new shout unlocked. Now find your way back out to the portal located in the middle of the Soul Cairn and you will be back in Castle Volkihar. Escape back outside and you will complete this quest.

Vampire Questline
These quests will each play out similarly to the Dawnguard quest, you will simply meet new NPCs and visit slightly different locations.

Dawnguard/Vampire Lord Questlines
From here, the quests play out virtually the same for both sides, but the only thing affected is the NPCs you will interact with and where.

This quest would see that you locate both Elder Scrolls missing to complete the prophecy. One you will acquire from Serana's mother during Beyond Death quest and the Elder Scroll (dragon) is located and should be in your possession if you have completed the Skyrim Main questline already, "Discerning the Transmundane" . If not, a side quest will begin in order to retrieve if if you sold it to an NPC after completing the quest. After you have retrieved both scrolls, you will speak to Dexion Evicus and learn how to read the scrolls in the Ancestor Glade

Enter the center area and select a scroll to read from your inventory. Afterward, you will learn the location of the bow and the remainder of the prophecy.

Touching the Sky
For this quest, you go to seek out the location of the bow and have to complete a request from a Snow Elf before he grants you the bow. Follow the marker on your map to Darkfall Cave after you have completed the quest "Unseen Vision" which shows you the location of the bow. Inside this cave, you will find the Knight-Paladin Galebar who will show you the location for a favor. He asks you to kill his brother who has become corrupted. He explains the task you need to perform in order to reach the inner sanctum and reach his brother.

Go through the cave further and you will locate The Forgotten Vale and must travel through here, stopping at wayshrines to speak with more NPCs to fill a quest item called the Initiate's Ewer. Fill this at the five wayshrines and then you are permitted to enter inside the chantry where you will find the snow elf's brother. Defeat his minions, falmer and spiders and other creatures that he sends after you and then chase him before finally catching up and killing him. You learn he was in fact a vampire and in control of the rest of the beings believed to be corrupted. After he is dead, Galebar will return and offer you the bow and give you 12 sunhallowed arrows.

Kindred Judgement
For this quest, you will ultimately confront Harkon either way you go and he plans to sacrifice you in the end after you have served your purpose and his goals completed.

Harkon is a very powerful Vampire Lord who can drain your health and will attack relentlessly. He can phase into a cluster of bats and fly around and at times after you have weakened him, he will fly up and surround himself with a force field and heal. During this time he will summon other skeletons and minions to face you and Serana. Fire a sunhallowed arrow at him to stop this and then continue your attack. Finally once you have defeated him, either a vampire Lord or Isran will confront you as will Serana who will want to continue traveling with you. This completes the main questline of Dawnguard.
