Issue #21695: Chapter VI in Waking Dreams black book - gate won't open to reach Miraak's temple

I've tried everything from restarting to making sure I've fulfilled all quests prior. The gate just won't open. I'm not missing anything to open it.

Apologies I meant Waking Dreams. Also without going through the gate I have no way to finish the quest.

I am also experiencing the same issue. I play on the Xbox.
Taken from the Skyrim Wikia:

"i just completed the portion of the dragonborn questline where the shaman of the skall village sacrifices himself in order for my character to receive the final word from h. mora. now is the portion where i am to read waking dreams to confront miraak in apocrytha. however, when i open waking dreams nothing happens. i am not transported anywhere. just sits on the page of the book. any help would be appreciated."

I am having this issue, I've tried reloading saves and such and to no avail nothing works, this was before adding mods to it. After modding, and adding this as the first and only mod it didn't fix that issue, but it did help with a number of other things. I've tried getting other Black Books to try and unbug it and no luck.

What is supposed to happen is: when you open/read the book, the book will automatically close and Mora will transport you away to face Mirrak and finish the quest. However this doesn't happen.

Any updates on this issue? I've just experienced it too and with 100+ hours already played I really don't want "just start over" to be the only solution.

Same exact issue, walk up the stairs, gate is closed, shouts won't open it, nothing will, I even killed a few seekers through the gate, nothing. Disabled all of my mods, still nothing, went back between chapters, nope, left the realm, came back, nothing seems to fix the issue, the gate just won't open. They really should have provided a "reset quest" function for this sort of situation, it makes no sense to restart my entire game because a single quest is screwed up.

Nope. We won't be able to reproduce it unless someone on PC can provide us with a game save to diagnose the issue. If if can't be reproduced, we can only assume it's caused by another mod or by user error.
A few things to check:

* If the quest "At the Summit of Apocrypha" has not been started, you can't go any further.

* You need to make sure the books match up on the appropriate pedestal in order to advance.

That's fair enough and understandable, the bug is definitely not mod related though, google searches can find the exact same bug being a problem but on 360, and also plenty of users stating they don't use mods and still experience the bug on XB1.

I found a solution, however, and I'm super happy about it! Once again my problem was that I was stuck at the gate which was closed immediately before walking out to control the dragon and fight Miraak, the books were placed correctly on the pedestals and I had advanced through to the next chapter, but the gate was closed with no way to get through.

The solution? I installed the "Cheat Room" mod for XB1, used the Change Player Settings or something like that spell to switch no clip on, and walked right through the gate, I then quickly toggled no clip off, did a quick save and removed the mod. I was then able to return cheat free and on the other side of the gate. Nice and simple, should work for any other glitches locked doors/gate too.

This bug has never been something we could reproduce, even when people supplied old saves for PC. It would just work and move on like it was nothing.

Given the fact that we can't reproduce it and nobody has been able to offer up a save that can do so, we're going to close this issue.

Also, we do not accept bug reports from the use of things like Cheat Mod which are known to break the game. We certainly do not provide support to anyone who intentionally removes a mod from their load order despite knowing that's a bad thing to do.
