Dragon Shouts Guide + Locations

This guide was made in response to the myriad of threads and confusion about dragon shouts and their locations.

Introduction
Dragon Shouts are the shouting of words in the anciant language of Dragons. Each shout has a unique effect, consisting of three words of power. The more Words you know, the greater effect that the shout will have. In order to use the dragon shouts, you first must gain a dragon 'soul' which is obtained every time you call a dragon. NOTE: you must stand near the slain dragon for around 20 seconds after you have killed it, whilst it's skin disintegrates, in order to absorb the soul.

How to initiate a shout
When you have obtained a dragon word from a Word Wall, you must initiate the Words into a shout, using an available dragon soul. It is up to you where you choose to spend your dragon souls so make sure that you make the correct decision.

Go into the in-game menu (press B), and go left into magic. Scroll down to where it says 'Shouts' and a list of known Shouts and Words will be listed. Known shouts will be in pure white, while known Words (inactive shouts) will be faded, much like during speech options that have already been made. Choose the word you wish to learn and press X, and now that shout has been learned, press A to equip it.

How do I activate a full-powered shout?
To pull-off a fully known shout with all three words learned, press and hold RB. The shout will be automatically performed at its greatest power when holding the RB so no need to try and time it to intiate a three-word shout(this holds true for 2 word shouts as well).

NOTE: try practising a lower level shout when all three words are learnt, in case you want to use one shout and then another shortly after as a 3 word shout takes a lot longer to build back up.

Dragons WILL keep popping up after the main quest is completed so no need to rush around for the achievement

LIST OF ALL SHOUTS AND LOCATIONS

Name of Shout
Description
Wall Locations; Location (Hold): related quest (if any)
Note; those without a location or quest relation are simply locations

Wall Locations

Disarm
This shout allows you to disarm enemies up to a certain level, with the use of all three words obviously disarming the highest level enemies possible. Note; some enemies cannot be disarmed.
Wall Locations
Eldersblood Peak(Hjaalmarch): Dragon lair
Silverdrift Lair (The pale)
Snow Veil Sanctum (Winterhold): Thieves guild quest:Speaking with silence

Dismaying Shout
Makes enemies up to a certain level flee, similar to Disarm.
Wall Locations
Dead Crane Rock (The Reach): Daedric Quest: Pieces of the Past
Labyrinthian (Hjaalmarch): in Shalidors Maze
Lost Tongue Overlook (The Rift): Dragon Lair

Dragonrend
This shout forces a dragon to land and could be useful against the final dragon in the main quest if your focus is on melee.
Wall Locations
Learnt during the main quest: Alduins Bane

Elemental Fury
Increases damage output 30-70% depending on the number of shouts learnt, for a short time.
Wall Locations
Dragontooth Crater(The Reach): dragon lair
Kilkreath(Haafingar): Daedric Quest: Break of Dawn. Shout is actually outside of Kilkreath Ruins (thanks to Bubbameister)
Shriekwind Bastion (Falkreath Hold)

Fire Breath
Burst of fire setting enemies on fire.
Wall Locations
Dustman's Cairn (Whiterun Hold): Companions Quest: Proving Honour
Sunderstone Gorge (Falkreath Hold)
Throat of the World (Whiterun): Main quest: The Throat of the World

Frost Breath
Similar to fire breath, but this shout slows enemies and causes frost damage.
Wall Locations
Bonestrewn Crest (Eastmarch)
Folgunthur (Hjaalmarch): Side quest: Forbidden legend
Skyborn Altar(Hjaalmarch): Dragon lair

Ice Form
This is a wave of cold that freezes enemies solid, allowing you to run up and shatter them whilst frozen. If left to thaw, the enemies will recover, with some minor damage to their health
Wall Locations
Frostmere Crypt(The Pale): The Pale Lady
Mount Anthor (Winterhold): dragon lair
Saarthal (Winterhold): College of Winterhold quest: Under Saarthal

Kynes Peace
Stops animals from attacking you when entering their den.
Wall Locations
Ragnvald(The Reach): dragon preist lair
Rannveigs Fast(Whiterun)
Shroud Hearth Barrow(The Rift): Dungeon quest: Wilhelms scream

Marked for Death

Weakens enemy armour and causes damage over time
Wall Locations
Autumnwatch Tower(The Rift): Dragon Lair

This actually stops time, allowing you to get the jump on enemies
Wall Locations

Korvanjund(The Pale): Civil War quest: the Jagged Crown
Labyrinthian (Hjaalmarch): college of winterhold Quest: Staff of Magus

Storm Call
This shout calls upon a thunder storm which is especially useful to deal damage to dragons while they fly overhead. Be wary though as it also can hit civilians and followers
Wall Locations
Forelhost (The rift): dragon priest lair
High Gate Ruins (The Pale): dragon priest lair again
Skuldafn(Other Realm): Main Quest: World-eaters eyrie

Throw Voice
This is an interesting one as it makes no sound at your current location but instead at a target, drawing enemies to the sound. Good for stealthy characters. All words learned on one wall
Wall Locations
Shearpoint (The Pale): dragon lair and dragon priest lair

Unrelenting Force
This is the main shout learned during the early stages of the main quest. Causes enemies to stagger or get flung, depending on the strength of the shout
Wall Locations
Bleak Falls Barrow
High Hrothgar: both final words learned during the main quest :The Way of the Voice

Whirlwind Spirit

This is a nice guide. I really like the fact that you tell us if some are quest related or not, thats mainly what I was looking for. Also is this a complete list of all shouts?

Thanks for this! Does the Fire Breath shout only have two words? This is the one I've been wanting to complete, but I only have the first word. I will be subscribing to this thread for later use.

Where is the word wall during the Breaking Dawn quest for the Elemental Fury shout? I can't find it in there and I have the guide as well. I'm starting to think it's a typo. Any help would be appreciated.

Edit: It's not inside Kilkreath it's outside right up the hill.

I thought Unrelenting Force had three words so three locations. Did I misunderstand?

I hope that I'm not getting screwed out of the Storm Call shout, because I went through Forelhost on another quest and defeated him, but it wouldn't let me search Rahgot to retrieve the key to unlock the door so that I could move on or to take his mask for the Siege On The Dragon Cult quest.

I have also heard that the third word of Storm Call has to be gotten during the main storyline, as you cannot return once you're done in the area. Can anyone confirm/disprove this? I don't have it, and it'd sure be a pain in the ass to start a new game to get the 20 shouts.

Also, I can confirm that you DO not need to learn all sections of each shout to pop the achievement. I just got done getting the first part of Kyne's Peace (the last shout I needed) and Thu'um Master popped. This game seems to be a bit glitchy so I can't guarantee this'll work for everyone, but yeah you don't need to worry about getting all 3 words for each shout, just one each and you're covered.

o wow that's really interesting and kinda makes me breathe easier knowing I don't have to find 50 dragons to kill, but lately they've been popping up all over the place. I've got 8 free souls ATM.

Does anyone know how many dragon souls you need for each shout? I have been trying to figure this out for a while now.

I have 6 currently and still can only use the first shout and the sprinting one from the main storyline

One dragon soul for each shout. But in order to unlock (use) more shouts, you have to find word walls.

Correct I have about 11 or so different shouts I have found words for, and have 9 dragon souls. Yet I can only use the force shout and the sprinting one still. And I do actually have one with all three words but can't use that one either. What am I not understanding?

If you want to be able to use the shouts that you already have, then you have to spend the souls on the shouts you want to be able to use.

For instance, say I have all the words for a shout for Frost Breath. In order for me to be able to use the shout, I have to spend dragon souls on it.

Is that what you are asking?

You need to spend your souls on them. Its only 1 soul per shout, to buy them go into the magic menu, choose a shout and just press

It says at the start of the guide that to unlock the words you found on a word wall you need a dragon soul already.

When I've finished my exams I will further update locations possibly with screen shots although they're not really that hard to find

Named dragons are finite. Other dragons randomly spawn so basically they are infinite.

Can the words of a shout be learned out of order or do you automatically unlock the next word? I'm missing one word of the Dismay shout although I'm certain I've visited all three areas.

I did not get animal allegiance when I went into Ysgramors tomb...guess I will have to go back, most likely a glitch or something been hearing Skyrim is full of them. Still a great game though.

It doesn't matter in which order you find the shouts just do long as you have found them all

only need one dragon soul per word. so to unlock all the words of a shout you need to find all the dragon walls for that shout and have 3 spare dragon souls which shoudnt be too hard

Yeah, same here. I have avoided the main quest (and consequently all dragons) though so maybe that has something to do with it.
