Answered! Contracted Noxiphilic Sanguivoria from Bloodfiends, now what?

I'm stumped, I got bit by a blood fiend while questing (wasn't intentional) and contracted Noxiphilic sanguivoria, I'm not a werewolf, never been a vamp before, no idea why but I can't find the quest to actually become a vamp now.
Can anyone that picked it up in the wild tell me where to go/what to do?

    Go to one of the shrines in either Bankgorai, the Rift or Reapers March.

    I'd think the scroll/quest should be available for you to complete your journey to the dark blood-red side there.

    I've tried going to the shrine in the rift near where I got infected and there wasn't a quest. A vamp player confirmed I'm infected though.

    I haven't been bitten by a vampire myself, but from what I can read one source says you should go to the "nearest wayshrine" and meet an NPC who will give you the Scion of the Blood Matron quest.

    Another source says you should travel to the vampire blood shrine where there will be a scroll you should pick up

    I remember when I got bitten (by a werewolf) I had to go to the werewolf zone "capital city" of my faction, so you might have to do that too with vampirism

    @Edaphon Omg thank you! You answered a question google couldn't!

    I’ve been bitten in the wild, and I was confused about what to do next, too. I tried going to a vampire altar, but nothing happened. I finally figured out I had to get a quest to go to the altar from some vampire dude who was hanging out in the main city in the 5th zone of my alliance for that character (This was Rawl-ka for me). *Then* I could interact with the vampire altar.

    Note: This happened a while ago. I don’t know if they changed anything with all the Greymoor updates to vampires.

    ""If you were bitten by a bloodfiend, you need to speak to Vorundil in Rawl'kha (Reaper's March), Evermore (Bangkorai), or Riften (The Rift), depending on your alliance.""

    Quoted from this page at UESP:

    After talking to the quest giver, you will then either go to the shrine or get cured.

    Might be joking in comments.

    I got bitten by a werewolf accidentally once. It was on a magicka character, so she would have made a weak werewolf. (Stamina characters are stronger werewolves.)
    It was kind of hilarious.
    I never cured her, and later made her a stamina character. The fact that it happened accidentally was too funny not to use it as part of her backstory.

    Contact your former gfs/bfs so they know they need to get tested too.

    I know this is about werewolf, but...

    Back when I got bitten by a blood fiend I met a guy just outside of Riften who was leaning on a post and that was the quest.

    It was trickier than being bitten by another player.
  • Athyrium93
    There was a guy outside Rifften that gave me the quest! Thanks for the answers! You guys knew better than Google did!

    ***side note, it was unfortunately my healer that got bit, so she did the quest, got the achievement and dye and got cured***

    @Guyle your comment made me laugh so hard I snorted

    A vamp NPC should turn up a wayshrine and tell you what to do next. You have to go to the vamp shrine for your alliance and enter it, and you're on your way to full vampdom.
