@Patricia,

You are not alone! This tricky quest has been giving lots of players problems, but the solution isn’t so hard once you know the trick.

1. Equip the Bloodskal Blade. You’ll notice when you perform a power attack (hold down the attack button) you’ll launch a wave of red energy forward. While moving forward, you’ll launch a vertical wave of energy. When moving backward, you’ll launch a horizontal wave of energy.

2. Look at the big stone door, and you’ll see red s, either horizontal or vertical, all over the outer door. Shoot either a vertical or horizontal energy wave from the Bloodskal Blade to match these s.

3. Everytime you hit successfully, the red will move or disappear and new ones will appear on the door — above it, or on the door itself. Simply try to match your red energy waves with the red s and you can solve this puzzle.

I hope that helps, Patricia! Let us know if you need to know more.

@jed,

To start this DLC, you’ll need to complete quests up to “The Horn of Jurgen Windcaller”, which comes after “Dragon Rising” and “The Way of the Voice” on Skyrim’s vanilla main quest chain.

I hope someone can help. I am on the final battle with Miraak and when his health gets low the third time, he becomes ethereal and I cant attack him, then he keeps his distance and it just goes on like that. Is this a glitch or do I need to use a certain shout on him? Please help thanks

@dylen,

It so sucks, but this battle does glitch out pretty often. Hopefully a reload should fix your problem.

I completed “the horn of Juergen wind caller”

But the game still does not allow me to do this dlc

The masked guys won’t come to me anywhere in the game

What do I do??
