How to Reach the Hall of Valor
This is a very brief quest which has one objective: reaching the Hall of Valor in Sovngarde. To do this, you just need to keep moving forward through the mist. You’ll encounter a Stormcloak soldier near the beginning, who will give you a bit of context in terms of what has happened. It turns out that Alduin has become powerful enough to cast a mist throughout the land, but it’s not clear exactly what purpose the mist serves other than to conceal Alduin as he devours the souls of the fallen.
As you move through the mist you’ll see Alduin taking flight, and you’ll eventually reach a whalebone bridge. The bridge is guarded by a gatekeeper named Tsun, who won’t allow you to enter the Hall of Valor until you prove yourself worthy in a fight. Thankfully, you don’t need to defeat Tsun, since he hits hard and has a lot of health. Once you’ve taken at least half of his health, Tsun will deem you worthy and allow you to pass.
If you’re a melee class, you can just use your highest damage attacks alongside damaging shouts. Your heavy armor should be enough to keep you safe before Tsun can eat away all of your health. As a squisher ranged class, you can move around and use the rocks for cover as you deplete Tsun’s health.
When you’re ready, head into the hall of valor where a Nord named Ysgramor will greet you. He’ll tell you that three heroes have awaited your arrival: Felldir the Old, Hakon One-Eye, and Gormlaith Golden-Hilt. You’ll need to speak with them to proceed. They’ll inform you that the plan is to use the combined power of your shouts to dispell Alduin’s mist, and force him into combat. When the mist is gone, the final quest will begin with the battle of Alduin.
