Skyrim Dragonborn DLC: How to Start

Published 2 years ago by Andy Farrant

Solstheim for a change of scenery

Skyrim's Dragonborn DLC has arrived, bringing a brand new quest where your Dovahkiin must confront Miraak, the original Dragonborn. Apparently, being a Dragonborn is a Highlander kind of deal - there can be only one - so you have to head over to Solstheim to deal with Miraak and find out once and for all who's the best at shouting at things and inhaling dragon souls.

If you're getting the DLC and want to get started you need to head to any city to confront the cultists who are in Miraak's thrall. Once these guys are defeated, search them and take their orders. These will direct you to Windhelm docks, where the cultists arrived from Solstheim. At the docks, you'll find the ship they travelled on and, with a little persuasion, its captain will agree to take you back to Solstheim to settle the score.

Once in Solstheim you can start your search for Miraak, as well as get your hands on other cool new additions including dragon mounts, new shouts, new spells and new enemy types, including the impossibly cool-sounding werebears. Are you planning on picking up Dragonborn? Let us know in the comments.
