The Jagged Crown - p.1 | Imperial Legion Quests TES V: Skyrim Guide

New Main Objective: Talk to Legate Rikke

Go back to Castle Dour in Solitude - The Jagged Crown - p.1 | Imperial Legion Quests - Imperial Legion Quests - The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Game Guide

Go back to Castle Dour in Solitude. As usual, you can choose between listening to what the people in the room are talking about, or initiate dialogue with Legate Rikke at once (the above screen). She will tell you that a unit under her command is preparing to set off for a place that supposedly holds the titular Jagged Crown. The Legion wants to claim the Crown before it falls into the Stormcloaks' hands. Rikke suggests that you meet her near the ruins of Korvanjund.

New Main Objective: Meet Legate Rikke outside Korvanjund

Leave the castle and open the world map - The Jagged Crown - p.1 | Imperial Legion Quests - Imperial Legion Quests - The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Game Guide

Leave the castle and open the world map. Notice that your destination isn't located directly in Korvanjund, but some distance away (the above screen). Consequently, I don't recommend using Fast Travel (if you have been there before), but go on foot instead. The ruins lie in the central part of the map, and you can travel there from Windhelm (go west) or Whiterun (go northeast).

When you reach the location, look around for the unit led by Rikke (the above screen) and join it - The Jagged Crown - p.1 | Imperial Legion Quests - Imperial Legion Quests - The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Game Guide

When you reach the location, look around for the unit led by Rikke (the above screen) and join it. It's worth mentioning that if you worked with Hadvar before, you will meet him here. Nothing comes out by talking to him, though. Wait until Legate Rikke approaches you, and in the meantime you'll find out that the Stormcloaks are already here. Confirm your readiness to attack them.

New Main Objective: Retrieve the Jagged Crown

Follow the lead of the Legionnaires until you reach the camp of the Stormcloak soldiers - The Jagged Crown - p.1 | Imperial Legion Quests - Imperial Legion Quests - The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Game Guide

Follow the lead of the Legionnaires until you reach the camp of the Stormcloak soldiers. If your character prefers close combat, you should actively participate in the fight and take out enemy archers first (the above screen).

If your character prefers ranged combat, dont use the stairs at all and eliminate enemy soldiers from a safe distance instead (the above screen) - The Jagged Crown - p.1 | Imperial Legion Quests - Imperial Legion Quests - The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Game Guide

If your character prefers ranged combat, don't use the stairs at all and eliminate enemy soldiers from a safe distance instead (the above screen).

No matter the tactic, remember not to use area-effect weapons, abilities and spells, because theres a high chance you could injure your allies, and as a result they can turn against you - The Jagged Crown - p.1 | Imperial Legion Quests - Imperial Legion Quests - The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Game Guide

No matter the tactic, remember not to use area-effect weapons, abilities and spells, because there's a high chance you could injure your allies, and as a result they can turn against you. After the battle, run with Rikke and her men to the ruin's entrance. Listen to a short speech (the above screen) and open the door to Korvanjund Temple.

Inside, crouch and join the other Legionnaires (the above screen) until Legate Rikke gives the command to attack the Stormcloak soldiers - The Jagged Crown - p.1 | Imperial Legion Quests - Imperial Legion Quests - The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Game Guide

Inside, crouch and join the other Legionnaires (the above screen) until Legate Rikke gives the command to attack the Stormcloak soldiers. Remember to avoid hitting the Imperials when you fight inside the ruins. You don't have to worry that they would fail without you, because Rikke's units should be able to win battles even if your involvement isn't crucial.

After the battle, wait until Rikke posts two Legionnaires there and follow her - The Jagged Crown - p.1 | Imperial Legion Quests - Imperial Legion Quests - The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Game Guide

After the battle, wait until Rikke posts two Legionnaires there and follow her. The next battle starts when you reach a larger chamber (the above screen); use the fact that some foes will have to use the stairs to join the main fight.

Fight until all Stormcloak soldiers are eliminated and go downstairs - The Jagged Crown - p.1 | Imperial Legion Quests - Imperial Legion Quests - The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Game Guide

Fight until all Stormcloak soldiers are eliminated and go downstairs. Rikke should stop at the north entrance (the above screen), saying that there is likely a trap in the next room. She suggests finding an alternative path.

If you feel secure and so far hadnt had any problems with eliminating enemy soldiers, you can ignore Rikkes warning and go north right away - The Jagged Crown - p.1 | Imperial Legion Quests - Imperial Legion Quests - The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Game Guide

If you feel secure and so far hadn't had any problems with eliminating enemy soldiers, you can ignore Rikke's warning and go north right away. Her assumptions about the trap prove to be correct (the above screen) and you'll probably have the most trouble with the archers, which are not easy to reach. Luckily, your allies will join you in a moment, so you don't have worry about fighting them all by yourself.

Its much better to follow Rikkes counsel and look for an alternative path - The Jagged Crown - p.1 | Imperial Legion Quests - Imperial Legion Quests - The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Game Guide

It's much better to follow Rikke's counsel and look for an alternative path. Return to the stairs and once upstairs, go east (the above screen). This way, you will go around the whole place where the previous battle has been fought, and reach a corridor that leads to the adjoining room.

Crouching, go into the northern room - The Jagged Crown - p.1 | Imperial Legion Quests - Imperial Legion Quests - The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Game Guide

Crouching, go into the northern room. You should see that two archers are occupying the balcony to the south-west, so it's best to get rid of them by aiming at the lamps above them. Once they fall to the ground, they'll cause a fire right where the archers are standing (the above screen). Depending on your playing style, stay on the upper balcony or jump down and help the Imperials eliminate all enemy units.
