Aura Whisper is a dragon shout in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
This Shout functions similarly to a Detect Life spell. However, unlike Detect Life, this ability also allows the user to detect the presence of animunculi, undead, and daedra. The shout can detect dragons, though it is barely visible. The range is also far greater than that of Detect Life. However, friend and foe are not differentiated.
The base duration of the shout is ten seconds, and each additional word increases the duration by another ten seconds.
- Though this is a whisper, using it near enemies will alert them to the Dragonborn's presence, but only slightly, much less than other shouts or the Detect Life spell. Detection while using the shout follows rules similar to spellcasting.
- This is the only way to detect animunculi in the base game.
- Allows detection of enemies that are not yet active, such as animunculi and Falmer who are still within their structures and waiting to ambush.
Locations: Northwind Summit, Valthume, and Volunruud
