Main article: Dragon Shouts

Become Ethereal is a Dragon Shout in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

EffectsEdit

This shout makes the Dragonborn spectral in appearance and will make them invulnerable to all damage for the duration of the effect. In addition, stamina will not be depleted while this shout is active (but will not replenish while running). However, any damaging attacks performed while the shout is active will immediately end the effect.

Shouting additional words increases the duration and cooldown of the effect. A word of the shout can be meditated on with Paarthurnax to increase health regeneration while using the shout.

AdvantagesEdit

  • Descend mountains quickly, as all fall damage is completely ignored.
  • Unlimited sprinting, as Stamina drain is ignored.
  • Ignore all traps.
  • Provide a small window for uninterrupted Magicka regeneration.
  • Charge various master spells mid-battle without the risk of being interrupted (with the exception of Dragonhide).
  • Can be used to make enemy mages deplete their Magicka while attacking the Dragonborn.
  • Can be used to quickly negate massive amounts of damage from dragon breath attacks.
  • Can use any spell that only affects the caster.
  • Can draw enemy attacks while healing/supporting a follower.
  • Fire, Frost & Lightning Cloaks still damage the enemy while Ethereal.
  • J'zargo's Flame Cloak Scrolls can be tested in combination with the shout to avoid taking damage.
  • Conjuration spells function normally while the shout is active, allowing for replacing fallen conjured creatures.
  • The shout can be augmented with Ethereal Spirit, increasing the health regeneration rate while ethereal by 25%.

BugsEdit

  • When the Dragonborn unequips the Ebony Mail and uses the shout and re-equips it, the shadow effect then disappears.
  • Upon jumping into the water while using this shout, the Dragonborn may appear invisible.
  • While in water the model becomes "broken up" and it ceases to merge, making the lines of all the individual pieces in the model become visible.
  •  360   On very rare occasions, the shout may not even work at all.

TriviaEdit

  • The "Azaran the Cruel" mentioned on the third Word Wall is very likely a reference to a necromancer of the same name in Thief II: The Metal Age.
