Quest Objectives


After having defeated Alduin during Alduin's Bane, the dragon flees to parts unknown. Since the danger of the World-Eater is still eminent, a way must be found to track down and kill Alduin.

Talk to Paarthurnax or Talk to Arngeir or Talk to Esbern[edit]

The Dragonborn now has the choice to talk to Paarthurnax (should the wise old dragon still be alive)), to Arngeir one of the Greybeards or to Esbern the Blades "historian".

Either party will make it quite clear that the only way to follow and track down Alduin is to trap one of Alduin's dragon followers in Dragonsreach — the palace is actually built to imprison a dragon — and via interrogation find out where their master escaped to.

Talk to the Jarl of Whiterun[edit]

The Jarl Balgruuf the Greater will quickly understand the severity of the situation, but with his people at heart, he will not help the Dragonborn unless the situation concerning the Civil War is settled in some way.

At this point the Dragonborn may already have sided with the Imperials or the Stormcloaks and "won" for their side, "settling" the matter.

Get Greybeards' help in negotiating a truce[edit]

If not, a temporary truce must be politically achieved between the two warring factions in Season Unending. And the respected Greybeards' are the hosts of this truce at High Hrothgar.

As it may be, the Jarl of Whiterun will finally agree to help imprison the dragon Odahviing using a trap in Dragonsreach.
