For other uses, see Amulet of Talos.

The Amulet of Talos is an enchanted amulet found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. This amulet represents the god Talos, the divine incarnation of the Dragonborn, Tiber Septim.

Uses[edit | edit source]

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

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.

Return to Grace[edit | edit source]

A concept art of the Amulet of Talos.

After Roggvir's beheading, 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 of the Divines. Upon speaking to the mother, she requests that an amulet of Talos be retrieved from Roggvir's body before she returns to the temple.

After witnessing Roggvir's beheading, 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 the quest can be completed by speaking to Svari.

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.

Search and Seizure[edit | edit source]

At the Understone Keep in Markarth, Ondolemar tasks the Dragonborn with going to Ogmund's House and confiscating his Talos amulet. Then, the Dragonborn must return to him, and he will say he will notify the guards to call for his arrest. However, it never happens.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Thalmor soldiers will become hostile to the wearer if they are spoken to while wearing this amulet.
  • If the Dragonborn is a vampire and has the Necromage perk, the cooldown is reduced by 25%.
  • It is one of the amulets of the Divines that has the lowest value, the amulets of Kynareth and Julianos also being of low value.

Click to see the list of bugs encountered
  •  360   PS3   If Greta is met with the amulet already in tow, she'll give thanks for it, but the quest will not be marked as complete, and the amulet will not be removed from the inventory (although no longer marked as a quest item).
    •  360   PS3   After speaking to Greta the amulet can be reverse pickpocketed on her. Doing so breaks the bug. (Possibly no longer works as of 3/25/13)
    •  PC(Fix)   Before speaking to Greta, type "player.drop 000cc846 1" into the console. The amulet will drop to the ground. Talk to her and she will ask the Dragonborn to get the amulet. Pick up the amulet from the floor, talk to her again, and the quest will complete. The amulet will still be in the inventory but it will no longer be a quest item. If there are multiple amulets in the inventory, use the above console input with 1 (one) at the end for each amulet on hand. The last one dropped will be the mission amulet. Get the mission, then get the amulet with the mission arrow only. After mission is complete, the rest of the amulets can be picked up and are now normal inventory items.
    •  PC(Fix)   Alternatively, advance the quest to completion via console. The quest ID is SolitudeFreeform03. Use the command setstage SolitudeFreeform03 40 to advance to the end of the quest, which should remove the quest from the log and allow removal of the amulet(s) from the inventory normally.
    •  PC   360   PS3   Greta can be killed instead of giving her the amulet. The mission will fail, thus be removed and the amulet no longer be a quest item.
  • If the amulet is taken from Roggvir's corpse after his execution in Solitude it will become listed as a quest item, and cannot be dropped. Any other Amulets of Talos picked up will also be quest items and will stay in the inventory permanently (until the quest has been completed). This will mean the Shrine of Talos cannot be made at a mansion. Fix: Kill Greta if completion of quest is not optional.
  •  360   If the Amulet of Talos is worn with Wolf Gauntlets, the amulet will not appear worn.
    •  PC   360   PS3   Occasionally, the Amulet of Talos will always count as a quest item, and cannot be used to create a Shrine of Talos.
