Title: The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim: Dragonborn

The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim: Dragonborn (

The trailer revealed to us that there is another Dragonborn, another being out there capable of absorbing dragon souls, one that has been around since the days of the dragon priests.  It showed the player traveling to the island north of Skyrim and Morrowind, Solstheim, as well as the daedric realm believed to be of Hermaeus Mora.  It also gave us a peek at several new pieces of armor and weapons and of new monsters to fight (some of them using spears), and even showed the character climbing on a dragon.


The info released with the screen shots that followed offered a few more details, pointing out new shouts and spells, including Dragon Aspect (allowing you to summon inner power of the dragon to deliver colossal blows and strengthen other shouts), the ability to discover dark new powers in a new Daedric realm (again we assume Hermaeus Mora's) while collecting books of forbidden knowledge, and the ability to choose new paths for skills and abilities.  It also told us what the code leak hinted at: new armors of Bonemold, Chitin and Stalhrim, and new locations of Solstheim, Raven Rock and Skaal.

So that ends the official information released so far, now we will dive into the rumor, speculation and 'leaks' floating around the internet...


So what sort of info has leaked about the game so far after beta testing?  And is it reliable?  Honestly, we won't really know until next week, but this is a bit of info I've seen floating around a couple places and I for one think is hogwash:
Pretty much from the point of "the DLC is just as big as the vanilla game," they lost me, though I could see the deal with spears being possible, though it would break the hearts of many gamers waiting to get their hands on spears for the game.

Now, in response to this, there was a forum post that will go un-named to protect the source that offers (possibly) more accurate information.  Though not being from my own eyes, I can only say these are rumors; they may be HUGE SPOILERS if accurate though, so beware and proceed at your own risk (now with more info added, thanks to 'The_Penis_Wizard' on reddit):

Rumored achievements:
For mages:
DLC starts by Cultists of Miraak searching for the 'false' dragonborn (you) and trying to kill you.  You backtrack their path to find your way to Solstheim.

Poster says they are 30 hours in so far and still not done, though also added you could probably rush through in 10 perhaps.

5 new shouts: Cyclone (a mini tornado - funny to see), Bend Will (force a dragon to fight with you), Dragon

Riding (they haven't gotten to this yet), Dragon Aspect (the glowing armor you see in the trailer) and Battle Fury (like elemental fury, but for NPCs).

Again, we can't vouch for these rumors personally, so take it all with a grain of salt; but who doesn't love to discuss the possibility of what new toys and adventures are coming out that we get to play with? Either way, we'll all know how accurate they are next week.
