- The resurrection takes place after the Dragonborn has spoken to Delphine in the Sleeping Giant Inn.
- However, it is common for Alduin to be interrupted while performing the ceremony by a random encounter, resulting in the dragon Vuljotnaak not emerging from the mound like he should as Alduin retreats prematurely. Using Fast Travel back to Bloated Man's Grotto usually ensures the ceremony is finished, as Vuljotnaak will be seen taking flight to fight the first random encounter he runs into if he does not spot the Dragonborn first.
