This is just what I did.

***Edit*** To begin the dragonborn quest you must first at least start though some say complete the main storyline quest 'the horn of jurgen windcaller' and then wait in a main town for the cultist attack.

Thanks to Subliminal Cuts for the info.



When you arrive in Solstheim and have to find out about Miraak turn around and go across the water to where there is some people in a trance building and a man watching.

Talk to this man and he will direct you to the temple of Miraak.

Go here and talk to frea and she will tell you to find a way into the temple.

Once the steps open up go down into the temple.

From here its a simple case of moving through the temple killing mostly Dragur Deathlords and Dragur Wights and the ocassional cultist.

In the room with the first dragon aspect kill the dragur and search the bodies for a key.

There is a door in one of the coffins then just continue on until
you get to the last room with the first black book.

Read it, Cutscene, Achievement Unlocked.

Ant695Straight across the water from the docks where you arrive. It's one of the sacred stones that hes looking at so it will also be a new location discovered.

Ant695Not sure what his name is but he's at the earth stone. If you turn 180 on the dock and head to the icon on the map straight in front of you he's just standing there watching the other people.

Bergieeeeiv checked the earth stone front to back cant seem to find anyone who will get dialouge.

Ant695When I went there he was on the water side of it and it said talk to him. Then I just asked him questions about what was going on and the about Miraak. Have you been in the town yet? Because I got a quest first to find a sunken ship which is why I was in the water in the first place.

HdawgerI've been having the same problem as Bergieeee. I've spent the last hour searching that little area, and talking to all the townsfolk nearby. No one within a couple hundred yards of the rock isn't in a trance though; they all are.

Ant695Ok for those not finding the guy at the earth stone his name is Neoloth.

This video shows where he is but goes the long way around to get there. Waiting for permission to add it into the main guide.

Subliminal CutsDoes it start a mission or misc quest? For those that may have already spoke to him
Posted by Subliminal Cuts on 21 Dec 12 at 03:14
Ant695It starts the main questline. He sends you directly to the temple without doing anything for him along the way.

Subliminal CutsAhh I think I know the problem, I read when the DLC was first released that you had to be at a certain point in the main game, story questline to activate the dragonborn quest
Posted by Subliminal Cuts on 21 Dec 12 at 13:31
Ant695Yeah I thought the level was to actually go to Solstheim but if you can go there before hitting the required level then the quest still wouldn't start.
Posted by Ant695 on 21 Dec 12 at 19:55
Subliminal CutsI've checked some forums etc, You have to have started the quest 'The horn of jurgen windcaller' to activate the quest. Some say that this has to be completed but I just started it and waited around in solitude for 10 minutes and the followers came after me (can't remember the proper name for them), activating the dragonborn quest. Should edit this info into the solution, not many people read through the comments

Joker De PabloI fast traveled to Riften and found someone dead in front of the tavern. Never saw a fight. I looted them and they had the cultist letter.
