Bethesda Softworks today updated their support page in regards to the Dragonborn DLC for the Xbox 360 version of the multiplatform title, “The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.” The publisher addresses several issues regarding the Sahrotaar section of the downloadable content expansion, including the “At the Summit of Apocrypha” quest and a certain boss fight. You can check out some screens from the Dragonborn DLC, as well as several older shots, in the slideshow at the top of this article and the fixes to the numerous Sahrotaar issues below (via Bethsoft Support):

After dying from exposure to the water in Apocrypha, opening some menus causes the entire screen to go black.

  • If this occurs, opening the map will usually resolve it.

After telling Sahrotaar to land, Miraak’s dialogue will not start during “At the Summit of Apocrypha”.

  • If you end up in this situation, you will need to reload a save prior to mounting Sahrotaar and allow the dragonriding tutorial messages to finish playing out before telling Sahrotaar to land.

An audio effect from the Apocrypha dungeon “Sallow Regent” can stack, causing the loop to persist indefinitely.

  • You can resolve this by making a new save and reloading it, or rebooting and loading a save.

Before the fight with Miraak begins, Sahrotaar is frozen while landing during the quest “At the Summit of Apocrypha”.

  • If you end up in with this issue, you will need to reload a save and avoid commanding Sahrotaar to attack Miraak’s dragon allies.

During “At the Summit of Apocrypha” Miraak is stuck in an ethereal form and takes no damage.

  • This issue can sometimes occur if you make many attacks very quickly or do a large amount of damage from a single attack. If this occurs, you should try reloading a save prior to the issue occurring and try the fight again.

“The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim” Dragonborn DLC came out for the Xbox 360 on Dec. 4. The same downloadable expansion will also be released for the PC and Playstation 3 sometime early next year.

Bethesda Softworks released “The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim” for the PC, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 gaming systems in North America on Nov. 11, 2011. You can purchase the game in the following link: “The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim”
