Kill the Dragon is a quest available in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


These can be given by innkeepers when asked about work/rumors. Any of the Jarls or their steward/stewardess can give these when asked for work. A Bounty Note will be given to the Dragonborn identifying the type and location of the bounty. Even if the Dragon at the designated location has been killed, another will spawn so that the quest can be completed.

The lair is randomly determined based on the quest-giver's hold.

  •  360   PS3   A location where the dragon was already killed may be chosen because it was not killed in a quest.
  •  360   PS3   Sometimes when the quest to slay a dragon is accepted, even if the lair is not discovered yet, the lair will be marked "cleared" and when you arrive, the quest marker will disappear, and the dragon will not spawn, making the quest incompletable.
    • If the player waits long enough, another dragon should spawn at the lair.
  • If area has already been cleared with the Blades and later, looking for work for the Jarl, he might give a quest to slay a dragon that has already been killed. The dragon will still appear, but the Dragonborn can't collect their bounty from the Jarl afterwards.
