The Amulet of Talos is an enchanted amulet found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim that decreases the cool-down time of dragon shouts by 20 percent. This amulet represents the god Talos, who is believed by many inhabitants of Skyrim to be the divine incarnation of Tiber Septim, a Dragonborn.


The Amulet can be used to decrease the cool-down time of dragon shouts by 20 percent, allowing the use of shouts more quickly.

In The Elder Scrolls V: Hearthfire, an Amulet of Talos, a Dragon Bone, Dragon Scales, and a Steel Ingot can be used to craft a Shrine of Talos for the cellar of the main hall of a homestead.

Amulet of Talos Concept art

A concept art of the Amulet of Talos.

After the beheading of Roggvir, a child named Svari in Solitude informs the Dragonborn that her mother, Greta, is very distraught by the death of her uncle, Roggvir, and is spending a lot of time at The Winking Skeever. Svari asks the Dragonborn to convince her mother Greta to return to the temple. Upon speaking to the mother, she requests that an Amulet of Talos be retrieved from the body of Roggvir before she returns to the temple.

After witnessing the beheading of Roggvir, the Dragonborn can immediately climb up and take the amulet in order to avoid having to get it from the catacombs. The beheading must be finished, or people will become hostile and attack. When the beheading is done, the amulet can be retrieved from Roggvir's body and then Svari can be spoken to.

Svari and Greta can sometimes be found in Addvar's House. Svari also runs around town with several other children. Addvar operates a fish stall in Solitude during the day.


  • Thalmor soldiers will become hostile to the wearer if they are spoken to while wearing this amulet.
  • The appearance of this amulet may be based on real-life Mjolnir pendants worn by devotees of Thor in ancient Scandinavia and by modern adherents of Norse Paganism.
  • If the Dragonborn is a vampire and has the Necromage perk, the cooldown is reduced by 25%.
