Skyrim - 5 Useless Shouts


In our latest Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim video we list the 5 most useless dragon shouts in the game.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is an open world action role-playing video game developed by Bethesda Game Studios and published by Bethesda Softworks. It is the fifth main installment in The Elder Scrolls series, following The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, and was released worldwide for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on November 11, 2011.

The game's main story revolves around the player character and their quest to defeat Alduin the World-Eater, a dragon who is prophesied to destroy the world. The videogame is set two hundred years after the events of Oblivion, and takes place in the fictional province of Skyrim. Over the course of the game, the player completes quests and develops the character by improving skills. The game continues the open world tradition of its predecessors by allowing the player to travel anywhere in the game world at any time, and to ignore or postpone the main storyline indefinitely.

  • Pluto Is Daddy

    Aura Whisper is amazingly useful for being a stealthy rogue that likes to pick people off with a bow. Which I do lmao

  • Useless.

    I didn’t ask to be featured in the title.

  • Z

    Aura whisper: sniper's bffClear skies: stagger skill with 5 second cooldownDismay: free hit to enemies (specially useful in legendary)Kyne's peace: remember this, legendary mudcrabs can 1 hit the dragonborn. Now imagine a bear. Throw voice: Hey, melon nose!

  • Taocnrut

    You can use Aura Whisper to find dwarven automatons still in their pipes.

  • Izzy Mujadzic

    Ok lets see if this guy knows his bad shoutssees the first oneI will murder your family

  • Jack Sparrow

    6:00 "I have played skyrim as stealth characters"LITERALLY AT THE START OF THE VIDEO :"aura whisper is useless"

  • Jenny

    The "clear skies" shout is actually my favorite bc i hate rain and fog ingame, just makes me uncomfortable so this shout is a true blessing for me

  • Christopher Bronson

    "Just warning you so don't get triggered when your favorite shout is on this list." looks at all the triggered comments LMAO

  • More Heavy

    Wrong, Clear Skies is useful for activating the Northern Lights at night

  • Mar H

    Dismay is almost an essential shout if you're playing on Legendary, since even much lower leveled enemies can drain your resources and/or kill you if you aren't careful.

  • autarchprinceps

    "Who uses sense life anyway?" - Ah I see you are not a true believer in the one and only church of stealth archer. No for real though, putting aside direct damage spells, when you play as a pure mage, sense life is the spell to have, especially if you play a stealthy game.

  • Cheng Zhou

    I use the clear skies shout to get clear skies

  • MrHothead099

    1. Storm Call: It doesn’t care who it hits, friend nor foe.2. Call of Valor: Cooldown is too long for what it is.3. Clear Skies: I like it, but yeah it’s useless.

  • everyone

    Aura Whisper? Clear Skies?This is why you should stay in school, kids.

  • 0002niarDneK

    I actually like using Clear Skies in conjunction with weather mods that add debuffs if you're caught in a storm or blizzard. That way I can make it sunny on command.

  • King Erased

    Why use console commands when I can tell the sky to shut the hell up? XD

  • Luke Peters

    I use aura whisper to find NPCs that aren't in their usual spot, or if im trying to be stealthy in a dungeon to avoid mobs lmao. it's so useful it shows every kind of npc.

  • Isa Saoirsé Mórrigana O'Dwyer

    Aura whisper is amazing for stealth builds. Shut it.

  • ZHC

    I use aura whisper and detect life to escape from jail mostly

  • psammiad

    Most shouts are useless given the recharge time.

  • roman plays

    a shout with the word whisper in it

  • wolflancet1

    All I heard was aura...... then I came here to comment about it before leaving....

  • Lord Sithis

    3 drain vitality shouts

  • unlacedmalkavian

    lol. Yea, you've heard this already, but your list here is just so subjective. Honestly, it sucks. Most of the shouts you've listed, I could see myself using with some regularity. In fact, most of them are insanely useful for stealth builds, and don't I recall you lauding stealth archer builds in the past? And what are your conditions for "99.5% of the time"? Just because a shout has a very specific use, doesn't mean it isn't useful or that you aren't using it very frequently. A sword swinging barbarian would consider any stealth skill "a niche use", but many others would not. Sorry mate, but this topic is just way too subjective.

  • Ryk Latortuga

    A day without the Clear Skies shout, is like a day without Sunshine.Ysolda likes it, It's always a fine day with the Dragonborn around...

  • Chupika 64

    I kinda have to disagree, clear skies is actually pretty usefull, if youre outside and cantsee 12 ft in front of you due to fog then get bumrushed by two spriggans then you REALLY wish you coulda seen them, or a dragons flyin around, ezpecially on night and you cant see due to snow, rain, clouds, etc. Plus it makes riften look nice. Overall a very usefull shout.

  • ʂҡ† ɢʜѳʂ†

    Aura whisper is not useless Bro

  • rumble fish

    1:33 " The enemies would be close enough to engage you (not if they can't see you) or far away enough that you don't really care (unless you hunt. Makes it easier to spot them from afar) or you could simply use your eyes (how about enemies behind a wall?)." The only relatable thing you said is about the cool down. Which is exactly why life detect is more useful than aura whisper and not overrated at all. Doesn't make aura whisper useless, comes in handy when you're out of magic or need it otherwise.

  • miguel almeida

    The fire shout... Say what you say, thats useless

  • Wolfy

    UMMMM ExCusE YoU clear skies is VERY useful also nubmber one is too but u called this useless which means it does not fulfil its expected intended purpose and since you called it useless which is kinda stupid it can stagger enemies and before you say "use ice form" ice form at full power has a 120 SECOND COOL DOWN which is not useful in prolonged battles because it disables your power to use other shouts like unrelenting force. Unrelenring force at its first power level (using the first word only) has a 15 second cool down and it also staggers enemies. The clear skies shout at full power only has a 9 second cool down so its better to use for staggering enemies.Also might I add without clear skies you aint getting to parthunnax (is that how its spelled?) or navigating through sovengard and its also VERY useful against alduins meteor shower!

  • vargen1414

    3:26 it's almost required on Legendary Difficulty to survive

  • Azure Greatheart

    From what you said, it sounds like throw voice has a specific use with regards to illusion: 1, use throw voice to gather the enemies. 2, cast group hitting frenzy spell. 3, cackle maniacally as they sort themselves out.

  • Trayvon Phillips

    Many of these are biased picks. Actually like 90% of these are biased picks

  • Victor Elliot

    I use aura whisper to find the greybeards in their fort

  • druidboy76

    Useless shouts? So. All of them?

  • Dat Floofy

    detect life is best for assassins

  • Shane Olin

    My friend used the clear skies shout once and as soon as the clouds go away there was a goat flying through the air

  • legend

    'Clear Sky' can be really useful with Auriel's Bow to get the sun out

  • xenazai zm

    I dont need detect life, i need detect dead, i can't loot the enemies body because i lost them :P

  • ArgumentativelySound

    Clear Skyes is a godly shout, controlling the weather is a great power to have and it is very useful when running through a blizzard or a heavy rain, especially at night. Skyrim would be duller without this shout.However, if you are determined to fight at night, in a blizzard, because you're still unable to find a use for Clear Skies, then do yourself a favor and use *Aura Whisper*, it reveals all life around you, other then that, I see no use for it and myself never use it.Kinds Piece... yea, I haven't tried it even out of the curiosity, it just doesn't inspire interest at all.Dismay and everything else that makes enemies run away is just an annoyance to me personally. Sometimes they run away on their own and I hate chasing after them... Though it comes down to personal gameplay, I'm sure there are people who may find an adequate use for it, at least at early stages of the game.Throw Voice is utterly useless, there's nothing to add.If you enjoy something and find occasional use for it, it's already not useless.

  • Sounds

    I actually like Throw Voice. It's so fun to use as a stealth character. Sure there are other ways to distract people and sometimes you don't need to distract them at all, but its a really convenient way to do it especially because there aren't many stealth shouts to begin with. It makes me feel like the dragonborn can be more flexible than just a big guy with and axe breathing fire on people.

  • Jason Irwin

    Fudge mupet: clear sky's is uselessFrostfall users: WRONG.

  • BarbaricProtector

    Clear skies shout actually counters Alduins Meteor Shower Shout by dispersing it.

  • Timmy

    You said to not get triggered if someones fav shout is on the list. I was like who would get mad over such a stupid thing.Gets mad after my fav shout is listed first

  • Thieverpedia, Insane Beardo

    No use defensive Shouts! Crush enemy instead!

  • Henry Marckisotto

    Detect life stuff is more meant for certain thrives guild and dark Brotherhood quests. Most things deemed useless are much more useful when playing at the extreme difficulty settings

  • Rezolution

    I use clear skies pretty often because I have the True Storms along with Wet and Cold, so stuff like snowstorms or rainstorms actually hinder your characters ability and movement speed. But if your playing on console, or without those mods I see why it would be useless.

  • Ryan Ouillette

    Counsel commands=cheating

  • Dr.Nepper

    I think aura whisper and detect life is intended to be used for stealth purposes not direct combat

  • Black Heart99

    I say why even make this video.

  • TheSpookyMacaw

    Aura whisper is very useful when searching for animals or creatures to fill soul gems, especially if you need a bunch of soul gems to level up your enchanting quick. Plus it can come in handy before a "boss" battle to see how many enimies you're going to have to deal with before you enter the room. Or if you're trying to sneak up on somebody in the dark and you want to make sure you know their location. Also not everybody plays a mage or even use spells besides healing spells during their playthroughs, i've gone through the game almost 20 times now and only pick mage once. I mostly play as an archer assasin, or a warrior one-handed with a shield (Spellbreaker shield and Dawnbreaker sword). For archery just a ebony or dragonbone bow and whatever arrows i pick up.

  • vargen1414

    6:12 Quiet Casting Shout

  • Jack Sparrow


  • 117 Theo

    I personally like Aura Whisper when I play an assassin/sneaky archer but that maybe just me though.

  • LobsterRoast

    ive used clear skies one other time when i was on the college of winterhold roof and a dragon attacked by there was too much snow lol

  • Ledger Quiram

    Clear skies is useful if you have mods like cold and wet or frostfall

  • juan mendez

    Everyone saying aura whisper is esencial for a stealth but I don’t even remember using aura whisper once while being a stealth archer

  • Alpha Xasason

    Except in winterhold and solsteim because it doesn't work there for..... Reasons.

  • BisAlmighty

    Clear skies is one of my favorite shouts to look at the beautiful Aurora lights in the skies at night

  • vargen1414

    6:58 you can also use it to get acces to the Thalmor Embassy after the main quest have been completed

  • DunkinDonutBoi

    5. Elemental Fury4. Animal Allegiance3. Kyne's Peace2. Frost Breath1. Whirlwind SprintAre my most useless ones

  • CrAzyCrEw YT

    I got a useless shout. It's called "AAAAAAAAH."

  • Kraggerino Kripperino

    SUMMARY OF THIS VIDEO: Every shout that isn't about combat is useless.Oh shit people actually noticed me.

  • Razvion

    Those Shouts are quite usefull what the hell ?

  • Tom Fredrick

    With a cool down of 5 seconds I think throw voice is a nice free distraction skill without wasting any magic or arrows as a stealth mage

  • Helios9826

    1) I find Aura Whisper to actually be a very useful shout when playing a stealth character...2) Kyne's Peace is also very useful for when you want to fast travel, but there's a mudcrab and a few goats somewhere nearby that are currently angry at you...3) Dismay is actually useful for when you screw up, get yourself cornered by several enemies, and your health is dangerously low, but you're lacking potions. Trust me it happens, and this shout becomes a lifesaver then.4) Throw Voice... yeah, no, it's useless...5) Clear Sky is a quest-based shout, you use it to go to Paarthurnax and to disperse Alduin's snare in Sovngard...

  • Kari

    "I wonder if Aura Whisper will be on the list, nah, every stealth character loves that shout, it won't be there..."


    not about the shout, but Detect Life is great to level up

  • PleaseHelp Mee

    I would say that Throw Voice is useful for Falmer. But, I see what you're getting at.
