Quest Info Description
Objective: Put an end to the World-Eater.
Location(s): Hall of Valor, Sovngarde
Prerequesite: Sovngarde
Reward: Call of Valor (Dragon Shout)

Quick Walkthrough

  1. Meet with the heroes of Sovngarde.

  2. Coordinate your shouts to clear Alduin’s mist.

  3. Defeat the World-Eater in combat.

Detailed Walkthrough

Head outside with your new companions, past the bone bridge and to the edge of the mist. What you need to do here is use the shout Clear Skies, which will also make your fellow dragonslayer’s use it as well. Do this a total of three times to finally clear the valley of the accursed mist.

With the mist gone, Alduin will come to face you. With a four vs. one fight, you should have plenty of distraction to afford yourself time to heal when you must, as Alduin’s breath is strong. The fight is very similar to the one at the Throat of the World in every other regard: your main goal in this fight is to land the shout Dragonrend on Alduin whenever he’s hovering. This will bring him down and allow your companions and you to damage him much easier.

Keep your health up and keep landing Dragonrend and through time you will defeat him. Note that unlike other dragons, Alduin’s death is much, much more dramatic and doesn’t grant you a soul. You also won’t have a carcass to loot, even though I saw the words search Alduin when he was dead! You can hit the ‘X’ button to try and loot him, but you’ll be unable to)…

Instead, talk to Tsun, who will reward you with a new shout and all its words of power: Call of Valor - Hero, Champion, Legend.

Using this shout calls forth the valiant of Sovngarde (your companions) to come to your aid.

One press will call forth Gormlaith Golden-Hilt, holding it a bit longer will call forth Felldir the Old, and holding it down all the way for a bit will call forth Hakon One-Eye. When you’re ready, Tsun will send you back to Skyrim.

And with that you’ve defeated the Main Questline of Skyrim. Of course, you and I both know there is much, much more to do. One look at your quest log would tell you that. So please, pursue the rest of the guide to your hearts content, but most importantly have fun.

Skyrim is the homeland of the Nords, a fierce and proud warrior people who are used to the bitter cold and mountanous terrain that mark the lands of Skyrim. Wracked by civil war, and threatened by the return of the legendary dragons, Skyrim faces its darkest hour. You must make sense of this maelstrom, explore the frozen tundra and bring hope to the people. The future of Skyrim, even the Empire itself, hangs in the balance as they wait for the prophesized Dragonborn to come; a hero born with the power of The Voice, and the only one who can stand amongst the dragons. You are that Dragonborn.
