Ok, the last Quest of the Civil War - Imperials. Fast travel to Windhelm Stables and speak to Tullius. Afterwards, head inside Windhelm. There’s really not much to say about this part. All doors are master locked, so it’s probably even a waste of time and lockpicks to try entering any of ‘em unless you’re good at lockpicking. There are obviously Stormcloaks galore here.

Make your way to the north side of the city while destroying barricades and killing Stormcloaks. Tullius is alongside you, along with Rikke, so its impossible to lose. The direct route is blocked off, so you’ll need to take a more round-about path to the left to reach the north side of the city. It’s fairly linear and the path will have barricades thrown in at choke points. Once you head to the north side, enter the Palace of Kings…

Once Galmar is taken care of, attack Ulfric with all you’ve got. Not a hard battle at all. Now, time for a decision: Either you, Dovakiin, kill Ulfric, or let Tullius do it. Pick whichever you want, as it really doesn’t matter.

Once you get in here, Rikke and Tullius start talking to Ulfric and Galmar. After some chit chat, you’ll fight them. Take out Galmar ASAP since he’s more dangerous than Ulfric. Ulfric WILL use his ‘Unrelenting Force’ shout during this battle, which is entertaining.

Now, you get to keep Tullius’ sword and the quest will end, as well as the Reunification of Skyrim Quest. Tullius will head outside and give a speech, so go listen if you wish. Congrats on ending the Stormcloak rebellion!

Skyrim is the homeland of the Nords, a fierce and proud warrior people who are well suited for the bitter cold and mountainous terrain which defines the land. Now scarred by civil war, Skyrim faces its darkest days with the return of the legendary dragons and their leader, the World-Eater Alduin. The future of Skyrim and even the lands beyond hangs in the balance, as the people await the prophesized Dragonborn, a hero born with the power of The Voice and the only one who can contend with the dragons. You are that Dragonborn; your task is to investigate why the dragons are returning, and discover a way to defeat them. At the same time, you’re free to explore Skyrim at your own pace, uncovering its many wonders along the way.
