Did you try this part :

 

".......head to Windhelm and speak to Gjalund Salt-Sage. Doing this won't trigger the quest, but you can explore the area and Cultists can still approach you here.

He can be found by the docks of Windhelm (outside the actual town itself), working on one of the ships moored here. Speak to him and ask for a ride to Solstheim and the Dragonborn DLC quest will begin."

Not sure what problem you were having, Special_K_Friend... I just stepped out of my house in Solitude and was almost immediately accosted by cult members, and the quest to get to Solstheim began.

Check the code on the spine of your game case. DLC is locked by region for legal reasons, and if the DLC doesn't match the region of the game, it will not work. For Australia and New Zealand, the code should start with BLES. The E stands for Europe and associated territories, which includes us. If you have a BLAS (Asia) or BLUS (North America) code, then that will be your problem.

Ok sorry my first post is a cry for help and bringing back an old thread, but I am not ready to ditch 200 hours of game play just for the hell of it.

I'm on my second play through and I just downloaded the Dragonborn DLC. I finished the main quest, and was in solitude when I was attacked by the "Cultists". Now, apparently one of the two cultist that attack you has an order from his superiors that when read, will start the mission. Now, in the midst of this brawl I had (there were guards around and ***** got hectic), one of them disappeared after I killed him. Probably glitched off the map. The other remained, but he didnt have the letter I needed to read. I shrugged this off, because I read somewhere that a certain word wall in Solstheim will trigger the quest. Well after exploring half of Solstheim, and clearing out the word wall and learning the new shout...still no quest. So I go back to solitude, and the cursor is still hovering aroun where the other body should be, but there is absolutely nothing. I dont have a save point prior to all this happening, so the option of reverting to a previous save file is not feasible. Any ideas on how to trigger this quest? Someone on Neoseeker said that if you walk around the main roads of skyrim, or in the main cities, that another pair of cultists will attack you. I have been roaming around for about 3 hours like an idiot and nothing yet.

it actually runs smooth as hell  with t he latest update and with my new HD, the load times are literally 15 seconds or less.

Thanks Brovaahkins
