Dawnguard - Are the sidequests necesary?

Im not adverse to doing sidequests, but I got a Dawnguard quest to send me to Dragonborn area, Raven Rock.

Not going to go there until loooooong after Im done with Dawnguard,

Its the quest for the Troll wrangler to kill a vampire. That's it.

/hoping I can avoid it.

They're not necessary, just nice to complete because you get stuff from them.

Dawnguard you get weapon upgrades and stuff like that, Vampire side you get items to buff up your VL power. I would say it's much more important to do them for the vampire side since those items really improve VL a lot.

I mean, you can go to Raven Rock without starting the DB questline as long as you aren't far enough along in the main quest to get attacked by cultists. Although if you're RPing, you probably wouldn't have a very good reason for your character to do so.
