As you all probably know, The elder scrolls V: Skyrim brings in new enemies in the game: Dragons. But what are these dragons, what is their history, and what are their powers and weaknesses?
Dragons, or Dovah, came originally from the continent of Akavir. They may look like animals, but they’re actually really intelligent and are able to speak. The language the dragons speak are also known as the voice, which the player uses when he shouts.
There are many different kinds of dragons with various levels of strength.
Black dragons are the most common and weakest dragons. They have a grey skin, and almost never use any other shouts then fire (Yol).
Blood dragons are showing around when you reach levels between 10 and 20. They primarely use fire and frost (Fo) shouts. They have a green skin.
Frost dragons show around after level 20. They use Frost shouts, which damage, slow down and lower stamina. They are white.
Elder dragons show around after level 23, and are considered very strong. They have a lot of health. They have bronze skins and use both fire and frost shouts.
Ancient dragons are almost the strongest dragons. They have a red skin with black spikes and use both frost and fire shouts. They show up after level 30.
Red dragons are very extinct, and there are only a few known red dragons. They are very strong and use fire and frost shouts. They are coloured red with blue markings.
Green dragons are very rare. They have a green skin. During the elder scrolls, you will probably not encounter any.
Then, there’s also skeleton dragons, Usually found in caves and dungeons. They have no soul so you will absorb none after killing them.
Notice that Dragons that use mostly frost are vulnerable to fire, and dragons that use fire are vulnerable to frost.
Then last, there’s Alduin himself, son of the god Akatosh, and self-crowned god of destruction. He takes form as a black dragon and is the strongest.
