Sky Above, Voice Within
Objective: Talk to Arngeir
Target: Master Arngeir, High Hrothgar
While Esbern inspects the third panel of Alduin’s Wall (and offers his opinion of it if you wish to listen), you should exit Sky Haven Temple. Head up and north, and exit through any of the “dragon arrow” doors to an outside ruin offering excellent views over the Reach.
You have a long trek back toward Whiterun, and then must navigate the 7,000 steps again to High Hrothgar. You should Fast-Travel if you’re feeling impatient. Seek out Master Arngeir, and inform him that you need to learn the Shout that was used to defeat Alduin. The Greybeard is angered by your request, blaming the meddling Blades for their reckless arrogance.
Arngeir ends the conversation (no matter what you say) by admonishing you for straying from the path of wisdom.
Master Einarth murmurs something to Arngeir in dragon tongue, and Arngeir calls for you to stop. He apologizes for his outburst and informs you that the Shout is called “Dragonrend.” It is unknown, even to the Greybeards of High Hrothgar, as it is deemed evil.
Only the master of the Greybeards—Paarthurnax—can answer your questions. You are beckoned into the courtyard and are taught another Shout that will open the way to Paarthurnax.
Objective: Learn the Clear Skies Shout
Target: Master Arngeir, High Hrothgar Courtyard
Follow Arngeir toward the ceremonial fire pit on the raised area of the courtyard, where he bellows three glowing, runic words into the carved stone on the ground below. Step onto and absorb each of them, so your Clear Skies Shout is the strongest it can be...
