Viinturuth (Dovahzul: VIiNTUrUTH) is a named leveled dragon found in the wilds of Skyrim. He speaks in native dragon tongue when in the presence of other dragons. He is aggressive, and attacks using fire or ice, depending on the Dragonborn's level. He is often found in the company of Alduin, who will not join in any fight against the Dragonborn.


Viinturuth can be found being resurrected by Alduin west of Anga's Mill. An Apprentice-level locked chest with leveled loot is nearby. The resurrection normally happens during the quest Elder Knowledge after finding out the location of the Elder Scroll.

If the Dragonborn has defeated Alduin, one of two things will happen; Viinturuth will either already be revived and roaming the mountains, or he will remain in the burial mound. If the latter occurs, it does not affect what happens.

    • Forgot to mention : you can find several named dragons in this area outside Skuldafn, not just him.
    • Sounds like something ditched in development, then forgotten to be taken out later.
