The Fate of The Skall
Follow Frea out of the Temple of Miraak to the Skaal Village. It’s down the hill and to your right, you will see it when you come upon a wooden bridge.
Talk to Storn Crag-Strider in the Skaal Village. He instructs you to learn the Word of Power on the wall of Saering’s Watch, and updates your map with its location.
As you draw near to Saering’s Watch you will see a Serpentine Dragon overhead. This is a new type of dragon, added in the Dragonborn DLC, and is significantly stronger than Legendary Dragons. Those with Daedric items won’t have much trouble, and those without may want to incorporate the Draugr & Frost Trolls around Saering’s Watch – as well as their new Dragon Aspect shout – into their tactics. Once defeated, Miraak will appear and absorb the Serpentine Dragon’s soul, but you may remove loot from it.
At the top of Saering’s Watch you will find a wall with the word Earth from the Bend Will shout. Unlock it.
Head to the Wind Stone, marked on your map between Saering’s Watch and the Skaal Village, and use the Bend Will should on the stone. The earth will rumble, the Skaal people will be freed of whatever hold was over them, and a Lurker Guardian will appear.
Return to the Saal Village and speak with Storn Crag-Strider. Through conversation he will give you the Cleansing The Stones quest, but continue speaking with him about Miraak and the Black Book to complete The Fate of The Skaal quest and trigger The Path Of Knowledge quest.
