Alduin won't take damage
I had this problem before but I have forgotten what the solution was. If you do something out of order Alduin does not take damage when you confront him at the Top of the World just after learning Dragonrend. I thought it was if you didn't let him finish talking before you attacked him but that wasn't it. He doesn't go invisible he just will not take damage.

You can not kill him there.You will need to continue the quest where you will follow him to his hide out in the realm of the dead.Something like that.You will need to capture a dragon in dragons reach and make him fly you there.

The way to fix this is to revert to before he gave his speech to you and parthanax. If you attack while he is speaking, he becomes invincble and cannot be killed its a nasty bug. but thats the only fix AFAIK.

I would suggest only attacking him "AFTER" he becomes an enemy, and not before hand. I hope you have a backup save.

Thanks. I also have the bug, but wasn't sure why he was invincible. Annoying...

He can only be killed in Sovngarde as suggested by OFI Liger.

He can only be killed there, but IIRC he ought to take at least a bit of damage when you first fight him, no?

Indeed patience is a virtue ... Let Alduin speak it's just polite after that you can do with him what you plase

I've waited until he attacks me, as a precaution... Unforutnately, no go... I've ventured to other quests to allow the Alduin one reset.
