|Temple of Miraak|
|Quests||The Temple of Miraak|
During the era prior to the Dragon War, the Dragon Priest, Miraak, ruled the island of Solstheim from this temple. However, at some point, he rebelled against his dragon overlords, using his power to devour their souls to gain power over them. According to the locals, however, the dragons fought back, and a bloody and gruesome battle was fought at his temple, resulting in his death and the temple's ruin.
In the Fourth Era, however, Miraak, who lived in Apocrypha, the realm of the Daedric Prince, Hermaeus Mora, began to take control of the people of Solstheim in an attempt to restore the temple and return to the island.
Temple of Miraak SanctumEdit
- A total of nineteen Dragon skeletons can be found around the exterior of the temple, however none are lootable, and as the Dragonborn does not obtain souls from them it seems likely that Miraak was the one who killed them, or that he was at least present when they died.
- A further three Dragon skeletons can be found displayed within the temple and the inner sanctum, the first can be found suspended in the Gatekeeper's room, the remaining two can be found in the Hermaus Mora statue room, one can be found hanging from the ceiling covered in moss, the skull of the third Dragon can be found at the entrance to this room with (presumably) it wings arranged in the rooms center.
- The location symbol for the Temple of Miraak in the map in Dragonborn is unique in appearance.
- Draugr Deathlords can be found here at lower levels, allowing the Dragonborn to acquire Ebony Weapons at a much lower level than usual.
