Skyrim DLC Dragonborn In-depth analysis: Architecture, Locations, Armor, Weapons and More Information

Some new information.

Yesterday Bethesda officially released the first trailer for the third piece of downloadable content, Dragonborn is making it’s way to Xbox 360. The video revealed a lot of hidden details which were spotted by a Reddit user. Brand new information about armor, architecture, new locations and weapons have been revealed.

The above image shows the entry to Solstheim along with Dunmeri architecture.

More Dunmeri architecture but with Redoran style.

This unknown structure is probably linked to Hermaeus Mora.

Books make it pretty obvious that this is the Hermaeus Mora’s plane of Oblivion: Apocrypha

New armor in action, mostly bonemold.

New enemy seen in Apocrypha, this time on a mortal plane. The creature is wearing Falmer-styled armor.

New sword in action. The new enemies are probably victims of corpus disease.

We see a new type of armor. Looks like Morag Tong.

A new kind of enemy in Apocrypha.

It also seems that we will be able to use their weapons and powers while riding a dragon. The beta 1.8 has these configuration files:

DragonMountedDualMagic.txt
DragonMountedDualStaff.txt
DragonMountedMLhSolo.txt
DragonMountedMLhStaff.txt
DragonMountedMRhSolo.txt

      I think it will be focused on magic or melee, possibly both. Just going by the trailer, there is nothing to indicate archers will be greatly rewarded. At the very least there will be some good melee armour.

      I think it will be heavy armour, two handed, and destruction since dawnguard had bows ,conjuration and restoration.The bonemould looks heavy and the spear mod is two handed so maybe the actual spear will be to

    The creature in the last pic looks kinda like something from the sixth house…

    I was hoping that there would be more of Hermaeus Mora, and that possibly there would be rewards or repercussions, depending on what answer you gave him at Septimus Signus’ Outpost in the original game.
