The solution is based on the English version of the DLC, so there may be differences from the Spanish version.


After loading the DLC, visit Whiterun, as soon as you pass the main gate you will be joined by a couple of weird people wearing a mask and a tunic, if they do not appear, do a few levels or go on with the main mission of the game. Once these individuals are in front of you they will speak to you, but regardless of the answers you give they will attack you. Kill them and then check the corpse of their leader, read the orders and you will be directed to the Windhelm dock.

The Fate of Skaal

After talking to Frea, she will lead you out of the temple, follow her without running forward until you reach the village of Skaal. Once you reach the village Frea will go and talk to his father Storn, wait for them to finish and talk to Storn too, he will tell you about Mirrak and you will discover that you will have to learn everything he learned at the time if you want to have even the slightest hope of defeating him. . Storn will direct you in the far north to a dragon's nest and a word wall. Follow the mountains to the north and try to stay on the peaks, once you reach the wall try to throw yourself in front of it thus avoiding the whole climb. In this area you will find several Draugr and skeletons and obviously a nice dragon, take out all the enemies and go to the wall to learn the new scream. Start walking back towards Skaal, on the way you will find the wind stone and nearby a building similar to those of Skaal, equip the new scream (learn it with a dragon soul if you have not already done so) and scream against the stone of the wind, the nearby building will soon explode, leaving room for a creature called the Lurker. This new enemy at a good range at a distance, so don't feel safe even from a distance, so keep moving around during the fight and you shouldn't have too many problems, the attacks are slower on the sides, try not to be on them too close when he unleashes his strength so take the right timing before slashing. Once you have defeated this enemy as well, return to the village of Skaal and go talk to Storn, it could happen that you are attacked on sight by the inhabitants (probably a bug of the DLC) if this happens, travel quickly somewhere else and wait about four days, however, by talking to Frea's father you will learn about the black book and the wizard who lives in the south called Neloth.

Purify the stones

Scattered around the island there are six stones such as that of the wind, the tree and the earth, at this point of the game you will have already purified one, and you will already know the location of the other two, the stone of the tree is a coincidence now lost, but Storn will be convinced that now that you have weakened Miraak's hold on the island, you can purify the rest. The four stones will be indicated on your map, the one in Ravenstone, one north west of Skaal, one north of Ravenstone, and the last one between Skaal and the village of Noleth. Cleansing the stones will require the same process you followed to purify the wind stone, go to the stone you have chosen, use the scream and defeat the Lurker. Once you have purified the stones you will have to deal again with the Lurker and with the cultists, each time you go to a new stone the difficulty of the fight will gradually increase, so between one purification and the other take some time to fix your equipment and maybe get some experience. After this task you can go directly to talk to Storn, or do the mission "The Path of Knowledge", after which you will still go to talk to him.

The Path of Knowledge

Starting this mission does not require that you have already purified all the stones, if you are behind that task leave the sun stone as the last one, as it is the closest to the village of Noleth.

Follow Noleth out of the house (and be sure to levitate downstairs so as not to die), he will inform you to go to a Dwemer ruin northeast of the Sunstone. Once you reach the place you will have to fight against a decent group of raiders, slowly make your way through the enemies to the area in front of the building, once the enemies are killed go to the opposite side of the ruins to meet with the wizard, in these ruins to open the Most of the doors you will have to use the levers scattered in the area, and you will also have to use a special cube, when you have opened all of them, enter the building.

Once you get out of the elevator walk further to find yourself in a place with some cars and pedestals, unfortunately you will have to wait for Noleth to finish speaking; now wait for him to position the cube on one of the pedestals and lower the water level, after that, collect the cube yourself and continue to follow the magician, you will find yourself in front of other contraptions, Noleth will inform you that he has found other cubes in the inside the ruins, follow it to the next door and open it with the cube. As soon as you enter, you will notice that the pedestal is red instead of blue, this color means that you can place the cube on it and open a new door, after which you can remove the cube and the door will remain open; the blue color instead indicates that once you have positioned the cube and opened the door you will have to leave the cube on the pedestal.

Once you reach the opposite side, go up the stairs and place the cube on the blue pedestal, in this way you will lower the water level in the center of the area, jump to the lowest floor then, open the furthest door with the red pedestal, go up the ramp and follow the hall in front, as soon as you see a room, stop as you are about to fall into a trap, there will be several blades waiting for you after the entrance, take the right timing (or use the hurricane) and cross. In the next room there will be a blue cube, be ready to run back to the main room, as once you have collected the cube the water level will rise flooding the entire wing you are in, once you reach your destination with the cube in hand, let Neloth pick up the other cube and raise the water level allowing you to reach the path to the exit, then you will have to swim under the platform with the three pedestals to find the door. You will be back in the main hall, go up the ramp until you reach an area with four pumps, at the base of each of them there will be a blue pedestal, put a cube on each of them, to do this you will also have to remove the cube on the pedestal at the upstairs, when each pedestal is in place you will have to deal with a centurion Dwemer, take him out and check the room he came out of, you will find a chest, when you are ready take the elevator to go up to the first level of the ruins.
