Side Quests

The World-Eater’s Eyrie

      1. After you questioning of Odahviing, tell him that you’ll set him free. Turn around and head up the stairs to the left. Tell the Whiterun guard to release the trap. Head back down and talk to Odahviing.
      2. After the trap is released, talk to him again, then hop on his back so he can take you to Sovngarde. After you land, proceed forward up the stairs. Follow the path around, kill the Draugrs, then turn left once you reach the next set of stairs.
      3. Head under the archway and go right. Do a 180 around the wall and head under the next two archways. Turn left, kill the Draugrs, then go right up the stairs. Kill the enemies at the top before heading into the Skuldafn Temple.
      4. Proceed forward down the path to the right. Head up the stairs and kill the group of Draugrs in the next room. With them dead, you will have to solve an easy puzzle involving the three pillars in the middle of the area.
      5. Activate the pillar on the far right so that the emblem of the snake is facing out toward the emblem of the snake in the wall to the right. Next, activate the pillar on the far left so the whale is facing out toward whale in wall. Finally, activate the middle pillar so that the snake is facing out toward the lever. Pull the lever and head through the gate on the left.
      6. Make your first left up the stairs. Head down the stairs in the next room and kill the Draugrs. Search the chest, then turn around and head through the doorway. Kill the spiders in the next room.
      7. Hack through the cobwebs blocking the next doorway and kill the spider on the other side. Go up the stairs, kill the two spiders and head through the double doors. Turn right, kill the Draugr and head up the stairs.
      8. For the next puzzle, turn right and activate the pillar in the cave so that the hawk is facing you. Cross over the two mini-bridges and activate the pillar in the opposite cave so that the whale is facing you. Finally drop back down and activate the pillar under the bridge so that the snake is facing you.
      9. Head back up the stairs, pull the lever, cross the bridge and head through the doors of the Skuldafn Temple. Follow the path around, kill the Draugr in the next room, check the chest and head up the stairs.
      10. Follow the path around. Kill the Draugr and cross over the bridge. Follow the path and head up the winding train track-like staircase. Kill the two Draugrs at the top, head trough the doorway and kill the Draugr to the right before searching the chest.
      11. Activate the lever in the alcove on the opposite side, then sprint across and under the bars before they close. Once you reach the next room there will be a pot hanging from the ceiling—use your Whirlwind Shout power to shoot past it to avoid getting burned.
      12. Kill the Draugr Overlord in the next room. Search him and make sure to take the Diamond Claw. Head for the door. Make sure the top ring is the emblem of the fox, the middle the moth and the inner-most ring should be dragon. Equip yourself with the claw and use it to open the door.
      13. Go up the stairs. Head to the rim on the other side of the room and learn the word of power in the wall. Turn around, go right and head up the stairs. Go straight and head through door leading to Skuldafn.
      14. This next part will be tricky because you’ll have to kill a dragon while fighting three Dragurs. Unfortunately, after you kill the first dragon, you’ll have to kill another one. You better have your magic up and at least one enchanted weapon.
      15. Turn left and go left up the stairs. Go forward and kill Nahkriin, who really won’t put up a fight. Search him for a cool Dragon Staff (which you’ll need), then go up the steps he was on and activate the seal on the floor using the staff. Once the portal is activated, drop inside of it to enter Sovngarde.
