Skyrim Dragonborn DLC – How to get to Solstheim

At long last, Skyrim players longing to visit Morrowind can now do so with the new Dragoborn DLC that is now available for $19.99. Assuming you’ve downloaded the DLC, you are now ready to visit Solstheim but the question is, how do you go there from Skyrim?

Here’s a detailed guide on how you can go to Solstheim:

How to get to Solstheim

– As soon as you download the Dragonborn DLC, you can access the content right away! There’s no need to finish the game or anything. As long as you have access to Windhelm, you are good to go.

– You will be needing a ship to go to Solstheim. To get you on the right track, go on the Windhelm Docks. Get outside from Widhelm through the side doors and find your way through the docks. From there, you will see two ships. Find Gjalund Salt-Sage and pay him 250 gold to get you to Solstheim.

– Once you’ve paid Gjalund, he will then bring you to the capital of Morrowind. Beware as a high Elf will approach you.

    Can’t believe they actually mentioned the Argonians taking over Morrowind. I hope Bethesda does more with Argonians in future DLC, maybe even explore an Argonian-themed Morrowind or help find liberation for the Argonians in Skyrim, like allowing them to enter the city of Windhelm.

    Either way, I’m also hoping that there’s different dialogue if your character is an Argonian, like mine.

    Mournhold is the Capital pretty sure. Don’t even think Solstheim is meant to be a part of Morrowind

    does that mean that you can access all of morrowind not just soltheim?
    because mournhold the capital is nowhere near Soltheim its actually towards the middle but towards the south of morrowind

    Did monkeys write this? Seriously…
    No, Solstheim is not the capital of Morrowind, I thought that was either Mournhold or Blacklight, but either way, this dlc is only an extent on the island, not the mainlan, just like in the Bloodmoon dlc for TES III.
    Also, its a Dunmer (Dark elves) settled island, so I have no idea why theyre saying a high elf approaches the player…

    okay also in my skyrim v PC it doesn’t work. I’ve downloaded The.Elder.Scrolls.V.Skyrim.Dragonborn.Addon.DLC-RELOADED and installed it but no change to my game, even the second boat does not exist. apart from that, down guard also doesn’t work from PC. i downloaded and received 2 files, coped them to skyrim v in data folder but still nothing happens. when i open the game its still the same. even if i check the guards in riften or whiterun.

    To get there you need to first defeat the dragon at the tower near whiterun then have the cultists find you.

    No you do not need to fight the Dragon or even have shouts unlocked. I just talked to the capt’n and got over there with Serana, one of the rings quest for the vamps showed up in the Colcinder Cave.

    Hope this helps, I find not worrying with the dragons during side missions much easier to knock out the guild quests and what not. Also, not having them drop in a town that i just fast traveled to and killing people is always a win in my book.
