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.

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

  • 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.

  • Useless.

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

  • Jack Sparrow

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

  • Izzy Mujadzic

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

  • SaintDreader

    Sorry, but Aura Whisper is an amazing shout for stealth characters. Honestly the first two shouts are great for a dynamic stealth character. This list feels it's made by two handed/heavy armor mains who only care for DPS. I know you said you played multiple stealth builds, which confused me since those are legit helpful for not being seen at all. These shouts are used so often, Aura Whisper to see guys so you know where to go to avoid, Throw Voice to distract those same dudes. Come on man, it's not rocket science it just requires a bit a creativity . Completely disagree with you, sorry but you're just wrong.

  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • piman0001

    actually clear skies has one very interesting effect I learned to abuse in any of my playthroughs, clear skies has a bit of knockback like a powerr attack on people that you fight and a recharge time of 5 seconds, given this you can effectively interrupt any attack the enemy throws at you and easily defeat any opponent that is staggered by it, creating infinite openings on your enemies

  • HaloModder555

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

  • 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

  • ZHC

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

  • Mórrigana O'Dwyer

    Aura whisper is amazing for stealth builds. Shut it.

  • wolflancet1

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

  • More Heavy

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

  • 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.

  • psammiad

    Most shouts are useless given the recharge time.

  • HyperBrid

    Throw voice is my second most shout used! What the hell man!

  • Taocnrut

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

  • NPC 158761

    My stealth character depends on whisper

  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    Aura whisper is not useless Bro

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Azoth Kuslov

    I thought clear skies was so useless that it only worked on fog and stuff. Added specifically for the main quest. Didn't even know it worked on clouds. I've been playing for years and I feel stupid for not using it on the sky

  • Samuel

    They are not useless if they provide roleplay potential. It's an RPG after all...

  • Victor Elliot

    I use aura whisper to find the greybeards in their fort

  • vargen1414

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

  • 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!

  • Trayvon Phillips

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

  • 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.

  • TheBlarg113

    Aura whisper is great when you're in a falmer cave and can't see past your nose. It's also great for detecting ambush placements of enemies for stealth and magic characters, runes become more useful for preemptive damage.It can reveal what's trying to jump you in dense forests/rough terrain and where its coming from so you can more easily engage it.It also can reveal where slaughterfish are in rivers so you won't have to spend ridiculous amounts of time wondering why you're in combat with nothing.TLFR; aura whisper lets you use your eyes when your eyes fall flat.

  • Mr Dinosaur

    The throw voice shout is pretty useless, but if you're breaking out of prison its the best lol

  • druidboy76

    Useless shouts? So. All of them?

  • 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!

  • John Peacekeeper

    I use ALL of these more than Fus Ro Dah!

  • xenazai zm

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

  • vargen1414

    7:33 you can use it to stagger enemyies for a few miliseconds which can mean life or death on The Hardest Difficulty

  • 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.

  • Kitsuko - san

    Hey you truly don't know alot of uses other than their original purpose don't you? Like the clear sky shout, yes, it's useless with its ( original function ) but what it do is let you stun lock your enemy if you use it outdoor. This will not work in door but if it's outdoor where you can use it, the shout can stun the enemy and leaving them an opening for you . If you say why not use force instead of this , clear sky almost needs no time to full charge. What that means is you can keep on using it's one word shout to stun a dragon or even a giant. Of its uses , when a dragon is about to use breath attack which is so deadly that you will die if you hit it directly in difficulty adept or higher , you can use its one word shout to cancel it's attack because it stuns the dragon. ( I recommend you use dragon bend if you have it because aside from stunning the dragon, it also dispel the ability to fly. But clear sky is the only shout that stun all enemy outdoors. )

  • Cheng Zhou the Younger

    I use the clear skies shout to get clear skies

  • 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

  • Escies OP

    I don't use shouts often, but clear skies is actually one of my favorites lol. I absolutely HATE Skyrim's blandly designed atmosphere, and with the clear skies at least I can see an actual blue sky rather than one that is as bland and colorless as just about all the dungeons in the game

  • Cyber Wolff

    detect life is best for assassins

  • qwerty uiop

    If a shout is used to your benifit at least one time its useful. If theres a shout that for example is like "use this shout on one pixel of the screen at a specific time to make a mudcrab appear" its still useful for that purpose. A useless thing would be for example a weapon that deals 0 damage abd cant block. It has no use at all and its useless. Try naming your videos better so i dont have to click dislike on it. Your videos are too opinionated, name it "5 shouts i think are useless"

  • 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.

  • Dr.Nepper

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

  • 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

  • Jack Sparrow


  • 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

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • DunkinDonutBoi

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

  • Alpha Xasason

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

  • vargen1414

    6:12 Quiet Casting Shout

  • 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

  • 117 Theo

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

  • CrAzyCrEw YT

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

  • vargen1414

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

  • theBatman

    Clear skies was for discoving a hidden dragon boss.

  • ARandomOtaku

    Clear skies stops the rain that kills my frame rate.

  • Razvion

    Those Shouts are quite usefull what the hell ?

  • Siim Soasepp

    Clear Sky sbout is really effective against Alduin's meteor shower. Other than that, Clear Sky can be use to see better in stormy areas :p

  • taketheshot juju

    cough cough there are people like me who can't see in Skyrim because it's so frickin dark. Aura Whisper is a great shout for most sneaky characters. I have never been detected from using that shout so it's probably because you're too close.

  • Fell God

    Who needs to know where your enemies are if they'll never know where you are? Invisibility gang

  • Macycrystal

    Uninstall is the best shout.

  • 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.

  • Ledger Quiram

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

  • Mike Barrella

    Yo just saying throw voice is amazing. You're not using it right... its brilliant at drawing enemies away from their defense zones and allowing you to slip right past them or if you've been slightly detected you can throw your voice far away to actually cause an enemy to stop coming your way and 180 the other direction, again allowing you to slip away.Seriously throw voice is great, should totally not be on this list. Honestly disarm is less useful than throw voice. Yes you can disarm someone but it would only be good against a high level boss and it's not always strong enough to work. Wasting precious shout time and doing zero damage. At least throw voice allows for your character to avoid damage all together 🤙
