It happens when you inflict too much damage to him around when he starts absorbing souls. When Miraak absorbs a dragon soul during the battle- he'll go Eternal during the duration of the battle and probably will not go back to normal. If you have the Unofficial Dragonborn Patch, I dunno why- try weakening him bit from bit but keep track of the amount of damage you do.

Try do less more damage, or this can be a bug from the unofficial patch, try to report this

The same happened to me, Jeffrey. Do not hurt him so bad so quickly. Damage him slowly. Use a sword and shield rather than a bow. Get in close and take his health down slowly. This will avoid the bug.

use low damage weapon's and when in battle with Miraak, when his health is low he will turn away from you stop fightihg and let him do his thing in the middle, WAIT for him to attack you again

Easier said than done when you're playing on legendary, heh
But then again I guess you don't have to worry about dealing too much damage

LOL, it is tough. You just have to toy with him. That was my problem. I took him on at a very high level and I had to just knock him around a little. That's why I said don't use a bow. My bow shots took him almost to death with one arrow. I just got in close and bashed him with my shield.

He must absorb 3 dragon souls and regenerate in pool I think 2 times and the third time he is killed well not by you but you do all the damage.

i attack him with a woodcutters axe and a shield. but when his health is low he still stays in eternal mode..... :'(

I'm having the same problem, but... possibly different? When Miraak goes to absorb the first soul, he does so, but his health doesn't recover all the way, and he just stands there. I'm not using any Dragonborn mods or patches, so i don't understand why this is happening.

Before you do anything else, make sure that if you have the Unofficial Patches you have them for Skyrim and all the other DLC you have. Just one of them won't work.

Second, verify your game files.

Once that is done, make sure your load order is correct. Use BOSS to check this and help fix the load order issues. A link to the tool is below. There is a pinned help file on this board that should help you understand how to and why. You shoudl also consider downloading and using the other programs they mention. There are also Youtube videos you can Google for.

When all this is done, try reloading a save from before you mount the dragon to fly to Miraak. See if things work correctly. If they don't then you can try removing the Unofficial patches, using BOSS and trying again.

My first play through of the Dragonborn DLC was so buggy I wanted to cry. I eventually ended up killing the two dragons while flying and then dealing with Miraak. This seemed to circumvent the godmode bug. I wouldn't recommend it though, unless all else has failed. If that doesn't work.... a clean install is what you'll need to do.

If you're not using mods then your first step would be to try the Unoffical Patches. They should be able to help with most bugs. Don't forget to use BOSS once you install the Patch to get the load order correct.

I am not a good magician, but was a powerful fighter, so on my last play through, I attacked him with majic, took longer yes. But he didn't stay crouching and ignoring me for 20 minutes.
Smokebearer Dec 17, 2013 @ 7:02pm 
I'll try that. Thanks.

So I've tried a fresh install, killing the dragons first, using my fists, and so many other things, and the boss fight is still bugged. I'm not sure what else can be done about this. If there's any other advice out there, please talk to me. This is frustrating to no end.
