No, there’s just no way to complete the quest without killing Miraak. Also, there is no way to kill Hermaeus Mora (at least in the base game/DLC).
In the base game you cannot have Miraak as a follower. You should know that if you finished the Dragonborn DLC As he dies at the end.
Notes. With the three words of the Bend Will Shout you can now tame dragons in both Skyrim and the island of Solstheim. If you defeat Miraak, you can absorb his soul, or rather all three dragon souls he absorbed during the fight.
You have to hit him with the shout a few more times. Miraak will not fight or move at this point. Successfully hitting him with a Bend Will at this stage will recharge your Shout even faster. He becomes your ally and you both must defeat multiple waves of enemies that Hermaeus Mora will send at you.
By logic that you need 3 words of will bending to resist him, then when you first met Miraak he could have bent your will since you didn’t even know then that the scream existed.
Miraak’s death marks the end of the quest. Upon his death, five to ten dragon souls are gained from him, plus any he stole from dragons the Dragonborn slew.
Miraak Follower is a mod for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. It is an alternate ending to The Elder Scrolls V: Dragonborn that uses the Bend Will scream to turn Miraak into a follower. However, this will anger Hermaeus Mora, who will send out waves of his minions to punish the two rebellious Dragonborn.
5 Saved: Miraak
Miraak, the final boss and main antagonist of the Dragonborn DLC, delivered a truly exceptional fight in his boss fight.
Yes. Miraak will steal the souls of dragons if you kill them, all but a few. Until you kill him, you only get about 10% of all dragon souls you collect. Also, according to the comments, if you kill Miraak you get all the souls back, which to be honest I find pretty ridiculous.
If you choose to serve the Wretched Abyss, Hermaeus will not be surprised. The Abyss then replies, “Indeed. Speak to me when the box has been opened and all will be revealed.” If you choose the second option instead, Hermaeus will be a bit angry, but he will calmly reply with “Be warned.
At his highest possible level, Miraak is one of the three highest level NPCs in the game (one of the others is the Magic Anomaly, which has no max level at all, the other is Arngeir, whose level is static). You can become Miraak’s slave for as long as you like.
Found another enemy with regenerating health. They’re definitely fun and balanced. What exactly is his weakness now? Trolls have fire.
Even in Skyrim, Miraak won’t always come and steal your soul, so if it does, just reload and kill the dragon again until Miraak doesn’t come and get it. 2) Killing a dragon on/above water prevents Miraak from spawning. Sidenote, once you unlock the second word of the shout, Miraak becomes less annoying.
Sahrotaar is a unique dragon in that it features in the story as Miraak’s dragon.
In Skyrim you can marry anyone of any gender or race.
Once all three dragons have been devoured, he can finally be defeated. After his defeat, Hermaeus Mora appears, impales him with a tentacle, and expresses his disappointment. Then Miraak disintegrates, leaving only a skeleton. Hermaeus Mora then transfers his status to the last Dragonborn.
Alduin is a god who can only be vulnerable and weakened by the effects of Dragonrend. Merethic Era Miraak- Miraak of the Merethic Era was significantly less powerful than Miraak during the 4th Era, and even if he knew Dragonrend he wouldn’t stand a chance against Alduin.
A Dragon Priest Mask is a unique headwear item obtainable after defeating each of the nine unique Dragon Priests that appear in various locations in Skyrim.
