  • Whenever I get his health down for the first time he won't come out of ethereal when he absorbs dragon soul... yet he will when he absorbs another (looks as if he requires 2 souls to become un-ethereal if thats a word.) I want to kill him get his armor,sword,etc and Im on xbox 360 so I cant use console commands... PLEASE HELP

    • Sometimes he will get stuck in ethereal form if you deal too much damage. Kill the last dragon and let him absorb the last soul, then you should be able to get to the point where the end is near.

      If that didn't work then you have to revert back to a save before the battle.

    • Thank you, I believe this is the cause... but I think I keep doing to much damage still... so should I switch to a different difficulty level or use different spells? Either that or the dragons aren't healing him up enough... (btw my weapon does 366 damage & Im using elemetal fury lvl 3...)

    • If you want to avoid the whole bug then the best thing to do is kill all the dragons first. Kill Sahrotaar, then when he is dead, use Bend Will on one of the other dragons (Kruziikrel or Relonikiiv). Kill him when he lands, then tame and kill the last dragon. After all dragons are dead Miraak will be at the stage where he is supposed to die properly.

    • well, my miraak is ethereal because he didnt absorb the souls. can anybody help me fix the dragon souls  bug? :< FYI, i dont have unnoficial skyrim patch

    • Dis solution is for the glitch when YOUR character absorbs the dragon soul instead of Miraak.

      Ok. After many many tryes and google searches i used the commands from the cosole SetsStage DLC2MQ06 500 to finish the quest then i used SetsStage DLC2MQ06 580 to bring the book up to be able to pick your perk and get home.

      BUT do it like dis !

      If you use dis commands while Miraak is ethereal will keep you stuck in combat ! And u cant use the book or anyting.

      USE the first command SetsStage DLC2MQ06 500 when he is not ethereal. Take a look if his still aggresive and coming for you, after dis command he will stop attacking. After you saw him stopping use the second command SetsStage DLC2MQ06 580.  At dis point you will have to hide till u get HIDDEN after that he will become neutral and you will be able to whatever u need to do. Dis is the only way that i managed to do dis. Hope it works 4 u2.

    • This is caused by using fire damage, as it keeps hurting him a little bit after he becomes ethereal.  I'm pretty sure thats the problem since I tried with a fire sword, with incinerate, casting incinerate from the dragon, killing all dragons first etc... the only thing that worked is killing him with Icy Spears.  This is not a matter of how hard you hit him, but with what you hit him.  Well, thats what I noticed, could be wrong, but it makes sense, since it worked on the first try with the ice spell (works probably with electricity too.)

    • Actually..... not using a fire weapon didn't fix anything. I actually ended up just starting the battle, not even attacking him, and then making each dragon land with the bend will shout, causing Miraak to eat their soul and then he never even went etheral because there were no dragon souls to consume.

    • PC User Here: after trying a number of different solutions (doing less damage, killing all the dragons first, console commands, etc), only one did the trick.  Disabling all the unofficial skyrim patches I had running allowed me to complete the fight and finish the quest.  After finishing up, I turned them back on and was good to go.  I hope you all have a great week, and I hope that helps.

    • I had this glitch aswell, and finally defeated him when I went on my own dragon. I first ordered him to attack the other two, no succes him went for Miraak. But somehow when I landed the other dragons interact more with the battle. Before they would just circle high above out of my reach, now I could use Bend Will and force them to land and killed all three of them. Then Miraak could be killed and the end scene started.

    • I had this same glitch. I fixed it by drinking invisiblity potions and crouching while Miraak is ethereal. He is only ethereal when he is in combat, so if you make him forget about you, he will go back to his normal state.

      If you do this, you'll need to kill Sarotaar because he will be attacking Miraak.

    • On ps3 one thing worked for me. He should absorb the first dragon soul himself. The second I shot down with a bow myself and he absorbed that soul but stayed ethereal. So I used the illusion spell invisibility and hid behind a pillar. I waited till the eye said hidden then cast the spell again just to be safe. I snuck up behind him and just crouched there and then he put away his weapon and walked away like nothing happened (whilst un-etheral) then I attackedhim again and tthe end scene started.

    • When I had a similar glitch it was because I had the separate unofficial patches installed rather than the combined one.

      The answer was already posted on the posts above, that is the best way to avoid the Ethereal bug. Miraak only goes into Ethereal mode when he is feeding on dragon souls, if you kill all the dragons first before fighting Miraak then it's easy.

    • I already did that but he still is in ethereal form

      Reload a previous save. That usually works. In any case, he shouldn't even be in ethereal form if you kill all dragons before he absorbs their souls.

      I did the code and got through the quest, but the only problem now is that the Dragon battle music won't stop.

      How do you fix that?

    • My problem is that there is only 2 dragons, including the one I fly in on. I've reloaded before the skall guy read the black book a few times and it didn't work. I tried killing both of these dragons, but while in combat, the dragon I road in on wouldn't be hurt, even with my glitches dagger that does a few million damage (which doesn't work with miraak because of the whole hurting him too much thing). So what should I do.??? Also, I don't have any patch mod on, so none of those to take off. Xbox 1 with the remastered game.

    • Hey, I just beat this after 10 failed bugged attempts. I let the cutscenes run to the point Miraak tells you about getting a proper greeting then I jumped off. I killed my start dragon the ran in circles barely touching Miraak so I could Bend Will of the circling dragons and kill them as well. I think there are 3 others. This then allowed me to beat the git. Don't attack the other dragons before Miraak speaks and if there's only one other dragon than yours, reload the auto save . Hope this helps you.

    • If you're still wondering how to complete this quest, forget everything you've just read. Also, if your issue is that you absorb the dragon souls, and not Miraak, this isn't for you.

      To kill the "glitched" Miraak, all you have to do is fly the original dragon over to him. Then either don't land, or jump back on the dragon and hit r3 a lot.

      The goal here is to let the dragon you're riding die to get it out of the equation.

      When he absorbs that soul, beat Miraak down in any way you like. ( I found the most powerful weapons to work best. I used a crossbow that one hits anything. )

      Now when he gets beat down, he'll go to the middle and act like he is stuck. He's not, just in need of a soul.

      Use bend will on his dragon until it comes down, and slay it for him to absorb that soul as well.

      If done correctly, battle will resume, and you can kill Miraak once and for all!


      I can't take all the credit though, the person above me, A Fandom User, led me to this conclusion in a way.

      There are only 2 dragons, and you really only need one. If you have the companion perk from the black book, you obviously can't hurt the dragon you ride in.

      Also, you don't need to wait for anything. Just fly in, get your dragon killed, and beat him down. Bend will his dragon, beat it, and beat him again. SIMPLE!!


      Hope this helps.

    • Skyrim Special Edition Miraak Bug
      
      Sorry for my English I'm not trained yet but I can tell you a way to solve the bug in the battle against Miraak.
      
      First of all
      
      When you climb the tower you must use Bend Will in Sahrotaar and attack Miraak .. let him kill Sahrotaar and absorb his soul.
      
      Then attack Miraak and lower your HP .. not much .. so it can fully restore. Use Bend Will on one of Miraak's allied dragons and kill him .. and repeat the process on the second dragon.
      
      He will take the soul of the dragons and not enter the state of Ethereal .. Now attack Miraak with everything and finalize the combat.
      
      This method can be tedious but worked very well for me .. I hope I have helped.

    • In console, I set him health to 30 by clicking on him and typing setav health 30, then I shot him with arrows and somehow that worked. He vanished at one point but I found him by typing movetoqt dlc2mq06

    • My problem is that, only the dragon I used to reach miraak spawns. The other two don't so that means he won't attack. And if I start attacking him. The other dragons never spawn in or even show up on my radar

    • There is no 3rd dragon for me! So I guess I'm screwed if they won't even give me the last dragon

    • Ok I reloaded more then 10 times and I finally got a 3rd dragon but now miraak won't gain enough power from a dragon and when there are non left he just stays ethereal!

    • If you have the problem that Sahrotaar can't be injured and he's the last dragon remaining then use storm call to kill him, it will unglitch Miraak and you can finish the battle. That's how I solved my glitched Miraak.

    • For those on PC I managed to solve the problem by spawning more dragons from the console and killing them (I just console killed them). Only took two and things progressed "normally". 

      I imagine any dragon will do but I used one of the dragons that were there since I don't know their ref ID. Just selected the nearest one in the console and did "player.placeatme 04039b6b" which spawned another one.
