P07A: The World-Eater's Eyrie

After you stock up on potions and are ready for this one-way ride, you should speak with the guard on the second floor of the palace to have him order the release of the Dragon -- he will do it, but he is not really happy about the idea...  Once you have done that and told your companion to go home, talk to the Dragon to make the trip!

I was actually hoping to get a the whole flying experience but no, fade to black and we arrived...

So, head in and start by taking out the undead guards in the area -- then your first Dragon!  Personally the only loot I took was Scales and gold, because there is no point in getting overloaded here...  Your second Dragon battle should happen after you pass into the large yard beyond the ramparts.  As you work your way towards the Temple doors you will take out more Deathlords, and then finally you will go in!

When you reach the back and take out the undead there, stand by the switch and look back at the pillars with the carvings of animals on them.  Facing them with your back to the switch change them all to Eagle, Eagle, Eagle, then throw the switch to open the right-side bars.  Go in and check the chest in there for any loot you want, then come back and close the bars by throwing the switch.  Now change the middle pillar to Snake, throw the switch, and continue on through the left-side gate.

The Beginning of the End

Fight through the undead, some spiders, and more undead, and you come to another pillar puzzle.  The solution for this is to turn the bottom pillar to Snake, the top left pillar to Fish, and the top right pillar to Eagle.  Throwing the switch lowers the bridge and you can now zone to the next area!

Go up the corkscrew stairs in the next chamber, kill the undead here, then use the lever in the rear area to open the gate.  Pass through and then battle the Overlord ahead -- when he is dead loot the Diamond Dragon Claw from his body -- you will need it to unlock the door ahead.

The Beginning of the End

The combination -- from top to bottom -- is Wolf, Moth, Dragon.  Open the door and pass through,

Ahead of you is a Word Wall that teaches you the Shout Wrath, Storm Call (the second word for this Shout).  Now continue to follow the marker and zone into the next area, where you immediately battle a trio of undead.  Go down through the ruins of the tower ahead of you and loot the chest below -- it has an Amulet of Mara in it, which you need to get married in the game, so if you did not get one from the monk get this one!

Now return to the area above and do battle with a powerful Wizard named Nahkriin -- who you kill! 

Go up on the pedestal and use the Staff to open the portal again, then walk into it to officially end this story quest and start the next one!

Is there any way to go back once you've entered there? Because I did, and I'm not powerful enough.
