Rorikstead Resurrection is an unmarked location found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


The Dragon Mound is located north of Serpent's Bluff Redoubt and due west of Rorikstead. During the quest "Alduin's Wall," Alduin will resurrect the dragon Nahagliiv here.


  • There is a slim chance that Alduin will be scared off from completing the resurrection if he is fired on by either Delphine, if the Dragonborn decided to have her and Esbern accompany them to Sky Haven Temple, or the Whiterun Hold Guards that protect Rorikstead. If this happens, fast travel to Gjukar's Monument and head back to Rorikstead, as then Nahagliiv will have fully emerged from his burial mound and be flying over the town, ready to engage the Hold Guards and the Dragonborn when they are spotted.
