During this quest, the Dragonborn is tasked with finding a way to free the indoctrinated Skaal villagers who are working on the Wind Stone.
- Activating the Stone before it is cleansed will put the player in the same hypnotic state as the other enslaved people: the player will work on the stone while hearing Miraak recite his Mantra. This is harmless and can be undone at any time.
- After the stone has been purged, activating it grants the North Wind ability once a day, after which it must be reacquired. The ability is an area-of-effect spell that deals 20 points of frost damage per second for 10 seconds, similar to the spell Blizzard.
- Those indoctrinated around the stone will be reciting Miraak's Mantra if spoken to.
