Can't get to solstheim (mild spoilers?)

#1BlahziePosted 2/17/2013 1:49:41 PM
I have a fresh(ish) character at level 18. Haven't started the skyrim MQ (haven't even talked to the jarl of whiterun) but I have downloaded dragonborn. I go to windhelm docks, but there's no boat to take me to solstheim and nobody to talk to except the two nimrods on the small boat, the one guy who will ferry you to solitude, and a couple of useless argonians.

What do I have to do to get to solstheim?

Thanks in advance.

It sounds like you don't have the latest update. (11, I think). Unistall dragonborn, install the latest update, then reinstall dragonborn.

I think you just have to reach the Greybeards so they recognize you as Dragonborn. At the very most, The Way of the Voice.

You can still go to Solstheim without starting the main quest. While doing dawnguard I had both a ring and an amulet artifact appear there, as well as radiant theif missions.

Right so I read the uesp entry and it turns out that you're supposed to be able to go without doing any of the MQ; except I haven't been able to do this because there's no boat there.

You don't have to uninstall dragonborn, but after getting the Mirrak glitch, I looked it up online. A lot of users who experience this game breaking glitch have reported installing the latest patch after installing dragonborn.
