Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Achievements

Thu'um Master

Learn 20 shouts  

Because our main character is “Dragonborn,” he can learn the language of the dragons to perform mighty “shouts” – which are spells, if we’re being perfectly honest. It doesn’t require magicka to use and it’s not specifically for mages, so even warriors can have fun with magic!

Anyway, I digress, throughout Skyrim are ancient inscriptions that the Dragonborn can absorb to use as their own – AKA dragon shouts. Each shout has three words and the more words you have, the more powerful a shout can be, so for the “Words of Power” achievement, you need all three of one specific shout. By standing near one of these ancient inscriptions, you’ll learn a shout. For this achievement, you need to learn 20 separate shouts (not 20 words, 20 shouts).

For the most part, dragons generally guard dragon shouts as well, if not, it’s some Daedric being, so be careful and be prepared. Sometimes though, they’re just well hidden. I’ve tried to describe them as easily as possible using the 9 major cities in Skyrim as landmarks, so use those as your guide. When you’re close enough the locations should appear on the maps anyway, and you’ll generally find that dragon icons means there’s a dragon and a shout there. Without further ado, here’s a list of as many dragon shouts I’ve found and while it’s not ALL of them, it is enough for you to get the achievement – and then some.

The dragon shouts and their locations are as follows:

Unrelenting Force #1 (Force) - "Bleak Falls Barrow" – West of Riverwood in the mountains – get sent there on the first real main story mission from Whiterun (north of Riverdale) or for “The Golden Claw” mission from Lucan in Riverwood.

Unrelenting Force #2 (Balance) – Given to you by Arngeir in the main quest “The Way of the Voice” when you get to High Hrothgar.

Unrelenting Force #3 (Down) – Given to you by Arngeir after you take back the horn to him in the main quest, “Horn of Jurgen Windcaller.”

Whirlwind Sprint #1 (Whirlwind) – Given to you by Borri in the quest “The Way of the Voice” when you get to High Hrothgar, after you get Unrelenting Force #2.

Whirlwind Sprint #2 (Fury) – Volskygge – High in the mountains in the corner of the map of Skyrim, west of Solitude, sits an ancient temple with a dragon shout being guarded by a powerful demon. It’s not actually at where “Volskygge” is on the map, but northwest, up the closest mountain.

Become Etheral #1 (Fade) – After “The Way of the Voice” quest, Arngeir will send you to Ustengrav Depths to retrieve the Horn of Jurgen Windcaller. When you reach the main cavern room, instead of heading onto the objective, head down the outside and to the bottom. Where the waterfall is with the green trees you’ll see the plinth with the word of power on it.

Become Etheral #2 (Spirit) – In between Markarth and Falkreath is a huge settlement with waterfalls and large stone structures. Get to the top, fight the Hagravens and in their little den, at the end of the Bard’s Leap Summit point (where you’re stood over the waterfall), you’ll find this dragon shout.

Ice Form #1 (Ice) – This shout can be found in Mount Anthor, the middle mountain in the range to the northwest of Windhelm, which is home to a big scary dragon. You can get this location from Arngeir at High Hrothgar when talking about dragon shout locations.

Ice Form #2 (Flesh) - Found in the mission “Under Saarthal” for the Circle of Mages, at the end after you’ve discovered the artefact in the Saarthal dungeon, on your way out. It’s southwest of Winterhold.

Kyne’s Peace #1 (Kyne)– Letter delivered to you after fighting your first dragon and reporting back to the Yarl. Location: “Rannveig’s Fast” – Dragon (ice) protecting the entrance with ghost adventurers and ice skeletons around. Use any fire spell when on the ground. Defeated it at a level 7, but it’s a slow fight to the finish. Then head in after for the Shout.

Kyne’s Peace #2 (Peace) – Shroud Hearth Barrow (depths). Located in Ivarstead will be a quest from the inn keeper, Wilheim. After heading into the Barrow to take care of a troublesome spirit, players will get a Sapphire Dragon Claw from Wilheim as a reward and they can now gain access to the previously locked door inside the Barrow. Head inside and follow the path through to the end where you’ll find your second Kyne’s Peace word.

Kyne’s Peace #3 (Trust) - Ragnavald Temple – North of Markarth im the mountains is a ruins called Ragnavald with a temple inside. When inside, don’t be fooled by how close the objective is, you need to head left and right into the canal and the crypts to get the keys to access the dragon shout area. Oh, and defeat the Daedric, Otar the Mod.

Aura Whisper #1 (Life) - Northwind Summit – After receiving a letter from a “friend” regarding a source of power in the mountains between Windhelm and Riften, round the corner from Shor’s Stone, you’ll fight a dragon.

Animal Allegiance #1 (Animal) - First, head to Helgen, go south-west, through Bonechill Passage and then the Dragon Shout is the other end, protected by a dragon. Watch out for the Snowy Saber Cat inside Bonchill, he’s fast, aggressive and strong as hell.

Fire Breath #1 (Fire) – Dustman’s Cairn mission, but only after you’ve done/doing the Proving Honor quest from The Companions as it opens up a new area of this dungeon.

Fire Breath #2 (Inferno) (and Sun?) – Learnt during the main mission, “Throat of the World.”

Marked for Death #1 (Kill) – Autumnwatch Tower - South of Ivarstad (and further south more of the Rift Imperial Camp) you’ll find a couple of towers in the mountains. There’s also a dragon here, but it’s at the top of the farthest tower to the south.

Marked for Death #2 (Leech) – Inside the “Forsaken Cave,” which is slightly southwest of Wintehold, at the base and south side of the mountains that surround it. North of that small lake on the map. Curamil, a tough-ass-bastard Draugr guards it.

Marked for Death #3 (Suffer) - Inside the Dark Brotherhood Sanctuary – See the “With Friends Like These…” achievement for info on how to get access.

Frost Breath #1 (Frost) - Brownstrewn Crest – Directly south of Windhelm in the middle of the swampland up on the top of a big large hill. Guarded by a dragon.

Frost Breath #2 - Can be found at the Skyborn Altar, guarded by a dragon. It's at the south-western end of the large mountain due east of Morthal. The one with Dagon's shrine on it. It's on a line due south-east of Dawnstar.

Frost Breath #3 (Freeze) - Folgunthur – Deep in the depths of this dungeon is a powerful Draugr and a dragon shout. It can be found southeast of Solitude. Not too far away, on the way to Morthal.

Dismay #1 (Fear) – Can be found at Lost Tongue Overlook after killing the dragon you get from a bounty letter from Wilhelm in Ivarstead’s Inn.

Dismay #2 (Run) - At the top of Dead Crone Rock (west of Markarth) is a dragon shout. Right at the top... through all the keeps that surround it - you have to go here on the mission "Mehrunes Dagon."

Elemental Fury #1 (Air) - Can be found at Dragontooth Crater, which is in between Solitude and Markarth in the northwest of Skyrim. The large mountain range there.

Throw Voice #1, #2 & #3 (Voice, Fool, Far) - Directly west of Windhelm is a dragon hangout on the top of the big mountain nearest it. The second peak, furthest away, that is. The dragon shout is there… I got all three here, not sure whether that was a glitch. It was guarded by a powerful Daedra though called Krosis. Struggled at level 24.

Disarm #1 (Weapon) – At the top of the mountain, south of Morthal, you’ll find Eldersblood Peak where a dragon and a drgaon shout is.

Disarm #2 (Hand) – When doing the thieves guild mission, “Speaking With Silence,” you’ll head to Snow Veil Sanctum. In the second area Mercer will mention something about being a perfect ambush area. It’s in that room.

Slow Time #1 (Time) – Found during the Mage’s Guild mission, “The Staff of Magnus,” after you fight the Draugr Deathlord by his throne in the final level of the Labyrinthian. As far as I’m aware, you can gain access to this place without doing this mission as you get an artefact to open the door.

Slow Time #2 (Sand) – Northeast of Whiterun, just into the snowy area on the map, you’ll find Korvanjund. In the crypt you’ll find the shout in the area at the bottom. Will come here on the second Imperial/Stormcloak mission.

Clear Skies #1, #2 & #3 (Sky, Spring, Summer) – In the mission, “Throat of the World,” Arngeir will give you all three words for this shout when you get to High Hrothgar.

Dragonrend #1 (Mortal), #2 (Infinite) & #3 (Temporary) – Learnt during the main quest, “Alduin’s Bane.”

Storm Call #1 (Storm) – High Gate Ruins – East of Solitude is a huge structure and set of ruins. Head inside and down to the last chamber (Vokun’s Throne Room). After defeating Volkun, the word of power is in the room behind the one you’re in.

Storm Call #2 (Wrath) - Found in the main quest, “The World-Eater’s Eyrie,” at the Skuldafn Temple level.

Call Dragon #1 (Snow), #2 (Hunter), #3 Wing – Received in the quest, “The Fallen.”

Call of Valor #1 (Hero), #2 (Champion) & #3 (Legend) – Received for completing the main quest, “Dragonslayer.”

There are more of course, but there are enough here to grab the achievement.

I wonder if you have to just learn 1 word for all 20 or all 3 words.

That's what I was wondering.

Comment #3 by ViperX700
Wednesday, October 05, 2011 @ 01:38:54 PM

That's 60 words. 3 words for each shout, and you'll get one word from either absorbing a dragon soul, or from a word wall. That's what i believe. If the word walls aren't presumably that many it means you'll have to kill about 50 dragons. This is most likely the best candidate for the most difficult achievement (or time consuming)

Comment #4 by rightousawesome
Thursday, October 06, 2011 @ 01:51:55 AM

@3 no the most time consuming would have to be the level 50 achievment

Comment #5 by Gavo
Sunday, October 09, 2011 @ 02:12:14 PM

@4 Ye I agree level 50 will be the most time consuming but I think this might
be the second most time consuming as dragons spawn randomly and some people will
find it easier than others depending when dragons spawn.

Comment #6 by TOC x InSaNiTy7
Thursday, October 13, 2011 @ 06:03:59 PM

Im guessing there's some kind of dragon "lair" where nobody goes because of, well, loads of dragons! Because the dragons got to come from somewhere :) Might not be until you complete main quest or something though or just search the mountains.

Comment #9 by ThePrince
Monday, October 31, 2011 @ 05:43:46 PM

I thought that in order to learn a word of a dragon shout you'd need-

1. To find a Word Wall that had a word of a shout which you'd get
2. To kill a dragon so you could have the ability to learn the word and use it

Figured there was always two pieces to actually learning a word itself.

Comment #10 by Death shrimp X
Monday, November 07, 2011 @ 11:01:26 AM

You will only need 20 souls because all shouts have lvl 1 which is one word one soul then lvl 2 2 words 2 souls and finally lvl 3 3 words 3 souls

Comment #11 by GSG9Enigma
Sunday, November 13, 2011 @ 02:00:48 AM

This achievement is going to be harder than reaching lvl 50 I've killed 2 dragons already n both of them I had to get help from town guards or wildlife

Comment #12 by thereoncewas1
Sunday, November 13, 2011 @ 03:10:05 PM

i just killed a dragon then as soon as i absorbed his soul i tryed unlocking one of the
words i used but it said a dragon soul was needed. what the hell?

Comment #13 by Wiz1414
Monday, November 14, 2011 @ 06:04:41 AM

@12 - Go to the shout and hit "X" to unlock it.

Comment #14 by Sidewind3r A7X
Monday, November 14, 2011 @ 07:45:08 PM

i'm guessing it means "master 20 shouts" ... i unlocked 20 just now but only mastered 7
and i didn't get the cheevo got 17 souls to spare though so it's only a matter of finding the words (dragons respawn on the dragon icons on the map every now and then just like everything else except for bosses)

Comment #15 by Rec05
Wednesday, November 16, 2011 @ 06:17:54 PM

I hope its just learn lvl 1 of 20 shouts but i have a feeling its going to require lvl 3 of 20 :( lol

Comment #16 by Fap in Class
Sunday, November 20, 2011 @ 01:58:23 PM

It's confirmed: One word of 20 shouts. Just obtained the first word of my 20th shout and BAM there it was.

Sunday, November 20, 2011 @ 02:15:32 PM

I have the same problem Sidewind. I keep finding dragons but not enough words. I have 26 souls left over and am being attacked by dragons faster than I am words. Just today I was attacked by 3 dragons at the same time!!!

Comment #18 by flechetteXXX
Sunday, November 20, 2011 @ 04:39:21 PM

You just need the first word of a shout since that is all it takes to actually activate the shout. There are 20 shouts total so you need all the shouts.

Comment #19 by Rednax
Sunday, November 20, 2011 @ 09:26:57 PM

Getting the shouts isn't hard, it's just time consuming. I'm lvl 31 now and i have 15
15 shouts i think. the places where you can get shouts is by talking to "arnuir" up on high hrothgar, finding the dragon peak or what i should call them.. they are usually up on high mountains, well places you have to climp to get to. and the last is inn normal side quest, or misc objectivs. this isn't an achievement you will get right away, if you just take your time you should have it by the time you finished the game. IF you bother looking for them of course!

So do you actually need to master the shout, or just have one word? If it is the latter, I should have it now, I have 20 shouts, all unlocked. wdhfskdhlsh

When in doubt, return to high hjrothgar (sp?) And the graybeard priest will set you on the path. Don't know his name, but definately sounds like Christopher Plummer voice acting.

Wednesday, December 07, 2011 @ 01:38:27 PM

To get this achievement you have to defeat Alduin first, b/c you are given the last Thu'um after; you don't need to have all of the shouts maxed :~)

Comment #28 by brutalhabit
Wednesday, December 07, 2011 @ 10:32:37 PM

Anybody have a problem with this achievement not unlocking? I just got my 20th shout today and got no achievement. Before any of you question me, I'm not talking about words. I know 44 words total, and have unlocked all 20 types of shouts.

Comment #29 by gi m0e
Sunday, December 11, 2011 @ 12:41:26 AM

Aura whisper is glitched for me i have the first word but when i try to get either of the second locations it trys to give me hunt instead of seek when that happens the word doesnt show up in shouts tab so i cannot unlock it and on top of that the third word wall wont even work after this happens. if anyone has any ideas i could use the help i reverted back past the second and third word but theres no way to get back past the first one got it so early on.

I am having issues getting the last word to the Elemental Fury shout..I know where it is but when I got to collect it nothing happens. The music plays and everything and I even see the swirls of air around me but it doesn't give me the Word and am wondering if I am doing anything wrong. I have already completed Breaking Dawn so I don't know what else to do..

This however sucks cause you gotta run around and find all the words

Comment #38 by Tes1995
Saturday, December 31, 2011 @ 11:24:07 AM

Alrighty then! Whew! Alright, tips.
1. Some of these are guarded by Dragons. Be prepared for anything!
2. Many can be found by finding the "Dragon Point" symbol on your map, an icon that looks like a Dragon skull will indicate a Word Wall location for a shout.
3. Some you must do quests for, advance to a certain level to do specific quests, and advance through questlines for factions.
4. Shouting enough outside in the wilderness can sometimes attract Dragons for souls.
5. Outside Word Walls usually have Dragons perched atop or near them. Kill them for a free soul to unlock that Shout!
6. Do the Main Quest for a good arsenal of Shouts.
7. Some Dungeons have SEVERAL Word Walls in them. Clear the dungeons out, folks! If you want to be absolutely sure.
8. For the ones on mountains. A w

Comment #39 by Tes1995
Saturday, December 31, 2011 @ 11:26:07 AM

Ah! Sorry again! Long post!

8. For the ones on mountains. A word of advice. MASH the jump button constantly! You'll get up a Hell of a lot faster. Just also look for good candidate spots to jump to.
9. Shouts need Dragon Souls to unlock. And a lot of people think they don't have them, and freak out if it says "Dragon Souls are required to unlock Shouts". Remember to press the correct button. They'll unlock if you actually DO have the Dragon Souls. ;)

Hope I helped you guys. Also hope I don't get busted for revealing every Shout and Word Of Power in the entire game...

This achievement and reaching level 50 are the last two I need. It has been a HELL of an experience! I'm new to the elder scrolls games but I'm thinking about backtracking to Oblivion because of how much I enjoyed this one. Hoping for some DLC in the future! :D

easiest way to get this one is to talk to the grey beards and go find the words of power they show you and keep doing it till you get the cheevy

Monday, January 30, 2012 @ 01:17:45 PM

@43, actually all you need is any ONE of the words for all 20 shouts. Does not need to be the first word.

Comment #45 by Psygaud
Wednesday, February 01, 2012 @ 09:39:03 PM

I have at least one word in all 20 shouts but I haven't unlocked the achievement.

@#44, actually you always get the first word in the shout first, that's just the way the game works.

Comment #46 by Psygaud

Comment #49 by Vas3line

You don't even need to learn them just discover the 20 different shouts. Popped today before I had a chance to even learn my 20th word.

Tuesday, March 27, 2012 @ 10:08:56 PM

@28 Here are some daedra heart locations:

1.The kid in the dark brotherhood sells daedra hearts (she's in the sanctuary.)
2. The elf Enthir in college of winterhold sells them.
3. The Companions building Jorrvaskr has one on a pate at the end of the living quarters downstairs.

To learn shouts is easy if you go to the locations received on the letters called "Letter from a friend" delivered by the courier you'll meet in any big city. The quest markers will be "Find the source of power in ... (location)".

Comment #54 by PhyscoKlLLER
Saturday, April 14, 2012 @ 01:56:53 AM

I personally do not think the achievement is worth the amount of time it takes to get it. I had learned 52 Words of Powered by the time i finally learned the 20th shout. they should've made it worth more. That's just my opinion. same with Delver and skill book achievement.

Although this is the wrong Achievment this will help you later on in the game
This is to do with the level before The Fallen this will teach you how to defeat Aldwin the dragon quickly and easily for the first time

Unfortunatley this bugged for me, I asked the greybeard guy for shout locations, and that was going just fine. Then one of them (I think in Valhume) is on a wall, you can hear the chanting-voice thing, but you just don't absorb the word. Boo!

Comment #61 by Henderbe

So, anyone now? Do you have to completely learn all 3 words of each shout?

Comment #62 by Huntatsukage
Sunday, November 18, 2012 @ 05:57:49 AM

@60 It is possible that your game glitched, it happened to me at a Word Wall, i had a quick look on the net and someone said if you save your game near (not right next to) the "glitched" wall turn off the console (don't know if you can just quit the current game or return to dashboard instead) then switch back on, load the game and try again. It worked for me and i haven't had much problem since, try it out. (unless you've already sorted it out considering you posted over a month ago xD)

Comment #63 by PeenerShot
Monday, December 17, 2012 @ 01:34:38 AM

Finally completed after obtaining word after word. Once I realized the achievement is about getting shouts not words, it came pretty quickly. Only one word is required per shout too.

Wish I'd read these comments earlier. I had been following the achievement guide trying to locate each and every word listed there. Nice to know I only have to bother with one word from each shout. Just need two or three more then.

Link this to the dragon hunter achievement, as you need to unlock the shout as well as known the words of power. Clear every Nordic dungeon, so maybe do this alongside the delver achievement as well.
