I'm trying to play through the Dawnguard DLC and I have a problem that the Quest "Prophet" just doesn't start
at the end of "A new Order" Isran gives his speech to the NPC's that we've brought back and says that a vampire has shown up looking for me, it is supposed to start the quest Prophet immediately afterwards but it doesn't.
I thought it might be one of the two mods that I have that directly effect dawnguard, Immersive fort Dawnguard and Pandorables dawnguard npc's but i've disabled both, I ran a load/save/load before handing in the previous quest (one that was nowhere near the fort) and then travelled to dawnguard but still had the issue, so I started a new game and speedran myself up to this point with god mode on and still had the same issue.
On the USEP wiki it says the following
"The quest may fail to start after completing the previous quest. If this happens, enter the following command into the console: setstage dlc1vq03hunter 5 then wait a few hours for Serana to appear in the fort, then follow Isran."
However doing that does absolutely Nothing, if I do this command and then use getstage dlc1vq03hunter it returns stage 0. I've tried waiting inside and outside of the fort for an entire day both before and after attempting the command but it does nothing.
from the wiki an other things i've read online it sounds like this can happen in the vanilla version of the game without mods, I've attached my load order anyway.
At this point I just want to find a workaround so either a fix to make the quest start properly or a way to jump start the questline, either or I don't care. but the wiki's recommendation is not working for me.
