Greywater Gorge appears as Sunderstone Gorge on the map. Objective markers work correctly, and the word wall/"source of power" quest to this location works normally.

Walkthrough[edit]

After you use a dragon shout in a settlement, a courier will find you and give you a Letter from a Friend, which provides the location of a word wall when you read it. Traveling to the location and learning the Word of Power from the wall completes the quest.

This quest can be repeated multiple times, and can also be active simultaneously with the other quest to locate word walls, The Words of Power. Both quests can even point you to the same word wall as the other.

Notes[edit]

  • This quest can be triggered while shouting in a dungeon, not only in a settlement. Oddly, it can possibly even direct you to the same dungeon where you used the shout. The bug below may occur if the shout is used in the dungeon before finding the word wall in that same dungeon.
    • PC Only This issue has been addressed by version 2.1.1 of the Unofficial Skyrim Patch; the quest will no longer be triggered by shouting in uninhabited locations.

Bugs[edit]

  • This quest may point you to a word wall that you have already visited, in which case your quest marker will lead you to a word wall with chanting and sound effects as though there were a word to learn on it, however none of the words will be highlighted. This prevents you from completing the quest and from obtaining another quest to find a word wall.
    • Pc22.png Use the console code SetStage WICastMagic04 200 to complete the quest.
  • Sometimes when going to the word wall, the word will not even appear even though you don't have it yet. This can be fixed by reloading a previous save.
