    Hi,
    I have the Dragonborn DLC and I started the Mirrak quest line.
    Since I did not save any dragon souls I have a big problem.

    Version one:
    I go straight back to Skyrim kill a dragon get the soul stolen. (not suppose to happen)

    Version two:
    I kill a dragon in Solstheim Mirrak absorbs the soul as supposed.
    I go back to Skyrim I get the soul stolen.
    Or I go back and everything seems fine but I do not get a soul.

    Version three:
    I reload an old savegame before even going to Solstheim (I have the quest to go there but did go to Windhelm yet).
    I kill a dragon and everything seems fine but I do not get a soul.

    I tried the unofficial patches.
    I tried to get a soul through the console.

    I have no mods scripts installed.

    Is there a fix for this?
    I do not want to start over.
    I hate starting over.

    Thx!

    Fixed: I use the console command player.forceav dragonsouls # to get the souls anyways. Kind of cheating but not really since this is a bug.

    s1 - I use an X-Box and always save back severl souls , because he steals them . If you bore right in to the DLC you might be able to pull it out . Just go kill him and finish Quest line , He's really not that hard if you run on Adept LVL . Hope I haven't generalized this to much . If I have then Apoligies to you<3

    The problem was I had no souls to purchase the shouts needed.
    I fixed this with the console trick.
    Killing Mirak was not the problem.

    I anyone else gets stuck because they do not have the souls use the command.
    After I killed Mirak everything is fine again souls are absorbed like normal.

    Not true. Before start Dragonborn, you must have at least 6 souls or after you cleanse all the stones, Miraak will not be able to continue stealing dragon souls.

    Hi,
    well before I started Dragonborn I did not kill so many dragons.
    I just had three shouts. The Fire one, the unrelenting force and the whirlwind speed (or so). Well and the one needed for the stones.
    I did not have any souls when I started Dragonborn.
    And even savegames before starting Dragonborn were corrupted.
    The Dragon just died and that was it. No souls got absorbed.

    I do not know what messed it up.
    I have no mods and so on installed.
    I just started using the unofficial patches after the problem was not fixable by using old savegames.

    Strange thing after Miraak died I suddenly had 13 souls avaible.
