Problem finishing the 1st dragon quest...

Went out of Dragonreach, to the West Tower, fought the dragon there, with the dark elf that leads you there. After killing the dragon, I am supposed to investigate the dragon, to find out info about it, so I loot it, and nothing updates, nor will the Dark Elf talk to me after. If I go to Dragonreach, the Jarl just tells me to go talk to the Dark Elf... Anyone have any help for this?

Did you stay and absorb the dragon's soul and use your shout?

How do I go about absorbing the dragons soul? I have nothing to trap it with, but no, have not done those steps

After killing the dragon, just stand close to it.  It will catch fire and you will then absorb the soul.

Standing on top of it... Lol... nothing happening... Looks like a reload now

It usually takes a few seconds for the dragon to burst into flames while you absorb it's soul.  Just be patient after killing a dragon.

You have to absorb the soul right after killing it or else it disappears into Oblivion.

Any buttons I need to be hitting, to absorb its soul? Dragon never bursts into flames for me, for some reason... Just has the loot on it, and nothing else

Nope, just kill it, loot it, wait for it to burst into flames, then wait until "Dragon Soul Absorbed" appears across your screen.

Tried redoing it about 15 times, still no flames or soul captured... Looks like I'm gonna have to restart

This does sound like a game breaking glitch sorry. I have no idea if it will help but you could try clearing the cache, can't hurt to try.

Under normal circumstances the dragon will immediately start to glow and then it will burn to a skeleton while a soul trapish aura connects to you all epically. Can't miss it. ;)
