Temple of Miraak Bug
I have run into a little problem with the Dragonborn DLC. I didn't know it, but apparently if the quest "The Final Descent" is completed before heading to the Temple of Miraak, the main questline cannot continue. A dragonwall was placed inside the mine for "The Final Descent" which lets the dragonborn learn the first word of "Dragon Aspect". The only downfall to this is this is the same word learned at the dragonwall within the Temple of Miraak, and the only way to open the door to progress deeper into the temple is to learn the word on the dragonwall. I've already learned it from the dragonwall in the mine so now I'm stuck. Is there any way to fix this? Unfortunately, I have no save files far enough back to not complete "The Final Descent".

This looks like a mod has serious issues ...

From what I've been able to find, a mod shouldn't be causing this. What makes me mad is this is an obvious problem with the DLC and Bethesda has done nothing to address the issue.

Apologies but I find your post a bit of a mess but I'll repeat it to see if I got it right.

- You completed "The Final Descent" which gets you a word for Dragon Aspect.
- You are now doing "Temple of Miraak" at the point where you have to activate the word so that the draugr ambush you.
- You are now stuck because the word wall is not responding.

Other than console commands, are you running any mods? Because I finished The Final Descent first before I completed Temple of Miraak and it was fine for me.

You are right. Yes, I have about 90 mods running, but most of them are graphical enhancements and different armors.

You did say most of them. Any of them modify gameplay like shouts? Probably not but we do have to go Occam's Razor.


Use "tcl" without the speech marks to noclip your way out the dungeon or use the command to give you the key.

EDIT: Console commands don't disable achievements for this game.

Which one is "The Final Descent" again? Is that the one where you kill Alduin?
