Ambient dialogue is dialogue spoken by NPCs as you pass by them, usually at random and without prompt. The line determining what the NPC will say is dependent on the voice actor and often race, rather than the character itself, and may not even be relevant to the NPC's characterization (For example, Vanus Galerion may say "Lady Estre was our true Queen! Damn you for killing her!" because he is an Altmer, despite his own principles being rather different). Ambient dialogue is not subtitled, though the text for it is found in the files. There are various types of dialogue listed on this page.

NPCs with Unique Ambient DialogueEdit

Several NPCs have their own unique ambient dialogue.


Greetings are said by NPCs without prerequisites and are directed at you, and can be said when you pass by an NPC or when you prompt them to speak. NPCs who do not have unique conversations will often say generic greetings instead.


This dialogue is associated with actions that warrant a bounty. There's dialogue for assault, trespassing, murder, theft, getting caught pickpocketing, transforming into a werewolf in public and feeding on an NPC's blood in public as a vampire. Each race has a variety of dialogue in response to justice-related actions. There is also dialogue for NPCs expressing suspicion towards a player sneaking while detected, trying to speak to a justice neutral character/merchant with a high bounty, and an NPC noticing that their pockets have been picked clean.


NPCs will react if you are a Necromancer and use an illegal ability in public. This dialogue is different for every race.


During events such as Dragon Rise and Rise of the Dragonguard, Dragons may fly over major base-game cities. When NPCs see a Dragon, they will run away screaming. This dialogue is different for every race.


Commentary (or alternatively, rumors) is said when you come close to an NPC, and they say dialogue directed at you. Often times it is dialogue relating to quests you have completed, with NPCs telling you their thoughts on what they've heard of your actions. The Scholars and Adepts on Eyevea after The Mad God's Bargain also have ambient dialogue based on their race.


Many Argonian lines are involved with the Ebonheart Pact zones' storylines.

Overheard dialogueEdit

Overheard dialogue is quite the opposite of commentary, and is overheard when you are within hearing range of an NPC (usually groups of NPCs), but the NPC in question has not seen you. Usually it is said by generic soldiers of factions who are hostile. Some might be said by beast races, such as goblins or giants, and is often listed incoherent gibberish.

Mages of EyeveaEdit

The Scholars and Adepts of Eyevea have their own ambient dialogue.


  • "Stars above, it's you adept! Do give Shalidor my best, yes?"
  • "Thrice-damn those Orc Mages. What part of quiet contemplation do they not understand?"
  • "By the Fixed Center, do we have to let every race into Eyevea?"
  • "Auri-el's breath, my patience with the Dark Elves wears thin."
  • "I am trying, adept. I truly am. But shouldn't regular bathings be a requirement for Guild membership?"
  • "The wind here speaks to me. The soil as well. Eyevea is a good place."
  • "Stay moist, adept."
  • "A Dark Elf complimented my spellwork today. And I do not believe he was instulting me."
  • "Go well along the river, adept. May it guide you well."
  • "Please give Shalidor my regards next time you see him."
  • "By the Green, it's the adept that helped Shalidor!"
  • "Smell that air. So far from Valenwood, and yet … so clean."
  • "I saw an Argonian earlier today! Can you imagine?"
  • "I don't approve of all this wooden construction. The Green would not approve."
  • "No one to tell me I can't try a salad! Hah!"
  • "I pray to Julianos for Eyevea's protection every day."
  • "I say it's a bluff. There's no way the alliances will tax goods coming through Eyevea."
  • "Gods keep you well, travler. And all of Eyevea!"
  • "Sorry, adept. Trying to calculate pricing for a particularly intricate spell matrix."
  • "Adept, well met! You have my thanks for all you've done for the guild."
  • "Sotha Sil's wisdom must have fueled you, adept."
  • "Praise to the Three! And may they favor the Guild's greatest adept."
  • "May the Three keep us safe in the heart of the guild."
  • "Go with Almalexia, adept. May she guide your research well."
  • "Vivec guide your steps, adept. As he does mine."
  • "May the Eight protect you, and our Mages Guild."

  • "Honor to you, traveler. And welcome to Eyevea."
  • "Bright Moons hang above Eyevea, adept. All thanks to you."
  • "Taste the air, adept. The fragrance of Magecraft and freedom."
  • "This one welcomes you to the heart of the guild, adept"
  • "This one is most impressed. You survived the trials of Sheggorath, and still have your wits about you!"
  • "Please, if you would. Give my regards to Shalidor next time you see him."
  • "Adept, tell me honestly: did you even know that flowers came in pink?"
  • "This place is wonderful. Don't tell anyone, but I think even Sovngarde might pale next to Eyevea!"
  • "Back home, my family calls me names. Here, everyone's a milk-drinker like me! Ha!"
  • "Ugh. I tell you adept, it never gets this warm in the Holds. How can the Elves stand it?"
  • "Just now I saw a Khajiit, an Argonian, and an Orc chatting over some scrolls! Troll's blood!"
  • "Honor and blood, adept. Drink in the freedom of Eyevea!"
  • "You know what I think, when I look around? That's right. Massive Mage army! Hah hah hah."
  • "Look, I belong here. So shove off, or you'll feel Mauloch's left fang!"
  • "Hah! Brave meeting, adept. And Mauloch's glory on you for all you've done."
  • "I know it's just my imagination, but I swear the Elves leave a stink behind. You know?"
  • "Health and welcome to Eyevea."
  • "Mind the shifting sands of magic, adept!"
  • "Upon my honor, Eyevea certainly is grand!"
  • "Luck and clear roads, adept!"
  • "Hail, wayfarer! Enjoy your time at the heart of the guild."
  • "Peace be upon you, wayfarer."


After the island of Eyevea is returned to Tamriel, the Adepts and Scholars will sometimes talk to you or others.

  • "By the Firmament, it's you adept! Be very welcome among us."
  • "Three-and-five venerations, adept. Welcome to the heart of the guild."
  • "Stars above, adept. Your work with Valaste is the talk of the guild!"
  • "Harmonious greetings, adept. The air of Eyevea is sweet indeed, is it not?"
  • "Hssk. May your research take root in the fertile soil of Eyevea."
  • "May your scales be slick with knowledge."
  • "I extend the spine of greeting to the Guild's living legend."
  • "Go well along the river, adept."
  • "My only real complaint about Eyevea? Not enough meat in the beer."
  • "The Green guide your steps, adept."
  • "Keep your Greenspeaker happy, adept. They will serve you well."
  • "Well met, adept. Mug of rotmeth?"
  • "Zenithar's coin purse, this place is good for trade."
  • "Even the Mad God himself couldn't stop the guild!"
  • "I've only explored a tiny fraction of this place, but it's wonderful!"

  • "Mara's heart, this place is lovely. Might have to bring my sweetie here someday."

  • "Long may you prosper in this, the heart of the guild."
  • "Breath that in, wayfarer. Smell the waters and life of Eyevea."
  • "Peace be upon you, wayfarer."

Alliance SoldiersEdit

Generic soldiers from the Aldmeri Dominion, Daggerfall Covenant and Ebonheart Pact may occasionally cheer for their Alliance. This dialogue is heard most often from hostile generic NPCs when they engage in combat or use certain abilities, such as Warhorn.

  • "I wonder if we have secured the Nobles District yet."
  • "Look behind that building. There may be more."
  • "I do not know which is more foul, the sewers or the altar to the Aedra."

The following dialogue can be overheard from the Veeskhleel Argonians found in Blight Bog Sump.

"Soon Veeskhleel will outnumber any tribe. All the tribes."
"I blame the Bright-Throat eggs. They are plentiful, but weak... just like their tribe."
"What do you think the Hollow are drawn to? I tire of tracking them down."
"It still reeks of the bright-one's poison."
"I'm almost afraid to see what Ree-Nakal gives birth to next."
"Our roots will span all of Murkmire when Ree-Nakal's work is done."
"I miss the shade of the Deepmire. I suffocate in this cave."
"The only thing the Hollow are good for is mulch! They rot too quickly, for dead-walkers."
"they also say something about the Dead-Water hatchlings dying
"These Hollow wither too quickly. At least their rot is of use to the sharith."
"These are not our egg-brothers and sisters... not yet."


This dialogue may be said by Purified legionaries in the Depths of Malatar:

"Lady of Light, keep us from darkness."
"The sun sets, but her light is forever."
"I am eternally hers."
"She is our light."
"We obey, Lady of Light."
"When the world serves her, our existence will be perfect."
"Life is hers to take!"
"Her light drew you here. Submit to it."
"Purity is made from many colors."
"Obey and she is pleased."
"She is our light."
"Her light blinds the unworthy."
"No-one defies her!"
"She'll scour the impure from you. Like she did for us."

Tomb of the Serpents SpiritEdit

While inside the Tomb of the Serpents, you may overhear a female voice whispering to both you and the awakened Akaviri undead.

"Kill the intruder. Only the strong can carry our message."
"Wake from your sleep. Preserve our legacy. Destroy the outsider."
"You know the messenger. If you survive, you will know the message."
"Lay down your sword, outsider. You already belong to the Akaviri."
"You are different, outsider. Perhaps you are the one to deliver our message. Perhaps you will die like the rest."
"Live, and you will share our story. Die, and you will share our tomb."


The Blighted of Cicatrice have dialogue.

"We hurt her... defiled her. Why did we defile her?"
"She wants to be left alone!"
"She doesn't want us here!"
"The lizard said she would make a cure! Please! We need a cure!"
"The oasis will heal us... yes! The oasis will heal us!"
"Why is she doing this? Why won't she let us rest?"
"It's just a rash! She swears, it's just a rash."
"Where is our cure, lizard? Where?"
"The oasis … what did we do to the oasis?"
"She just wanted us to leave. Why, why didn't we leave?"
"It's just a cough. This one is fine! She's fine!"
"Where is that cure? The lizard promised!"
"Please, let us rest. We just want to rest."
"Why did we come here?"
"They burned it all. Everything in flames."
"The lizard tricked us! Lies! All lies!"

Tenarr ZalviitEdit

The Tenarr Zalviit vampires can be overheard talking to each other:

"I never want to see that tomb again. Not even to hide from the sun."
"Don't kill everyone. Herd some to the ossuary."
"Finally we feast on rich blood!"
"The taste of hot blood. How'd we go so long without it?"
"This one used to like fowl, but after he turned, their blood seemed thin as gruel."
"We should leave the Weeping Scar. Take over somewhere worth living."
"It's been too long since we tasted life."

Sunspire SlavesEdit

The servants of Nahviintaas will shout at you.

"Now you'll learn the Way of Jone!"
"We are the Great Cat's chosen!"
"Die! Die! Die!"
"Die for Alkosh!"
"The Way of Jode will lay you low!"
"Your time is at an end. Don't fight it."
"What Alkosh wills must be done!"
"Bow before the Dragon King of Cats!"
"Alkosh has already decided the outcome."
"Time conquers all!"
"Khajiit will cast you from this mountain!"
"Find solace in a predestined outcome."
"Jode! Fan our flames!"

Ruddy FangsEdit

The Ruddy Fangs bandits will have their own things to say:

"You'd think that Azurah would have warned the old loony to stay away from bandit dens."
"What kind of fool walks into a bandit den? He's loony all right."
"If we're planning on raiding Hakoshae, I'm staying behind. Nearly got my tail chopped off last time!"
"Had another run in with Sugar-Slinger the other day. Nothing I hate more than a stuck up smuggler."

The Fangs in Southern Elsweyr also have their own dialogue apart from the ones in Northern Elsweyr.

"If that Orc tries to pick a fight with me one more time, I'm going to cut his throat and stuff his body in a barrel."
"I wish those smoke addled wastrels would keep it down for once."
"At least we don't see many Sea Elves this far east."
"Stay out of the stock, unless you want to wind up like those other sap lickers."
"I want to catch some jellies for dinner. I rarely have them outside Black Marsh."
"All this salt in the air gives me itchy scales."
"Thought smuggling skooma was supposed to be safer than slaving."
"I think the lizards are plotting something. Sleep light."
"No respectable Dunmer would take orders from an overgrown cat. Good thing we're not respectable."
"Guess the skeevers aren't scared of Khajiit. They keep getting into the sugar sacks."
"Whenever the shaveskins get too full of themselves, this one conjures a great tailwind to deflate them a bit."
"This one already tried flushing the waste out to sea. The tide's too strong."
"Khajiit heard one of the lunatics tried to eat another's face the other day. Stay clear of them.""
"Khajiit say it's trapped moonlight in the waters. This one says it's gold."
"Khajiit should be riding the wind at full sail, not clearing cave air of skooma fumes."
"This one would break your twiggy little bones without even trying."
"This one won't hesitate to crack your skull if you can't handle your skooma."
"Bet that swill tastes like sea water. Khajiit won't touch it."
"It stinks of fish, skooma, and spew. This one would rather be out to sea."
"Filthy shaveskins. Water all around and still they do not bathe."
"You'll not smoke that stuff around this one, if you know what's good for you."
"Think this stuff is sweeter than mead?"
"What do you say we strip down and take a dip?"
"I could take one of those tusking Pahmar-raht, easy."
"Who here thinks they can drink me under the table?"
"How is it cats covered in fur can come from somewhere so hot? At least it's cool in this cove."
"How about we beat up a few of the crazies?"
"If the Tigershark wants to test his recipe, he can drink it himself."
"The Khajiit plan to double cross us, I'm sure of it."
"Keep slacking off and you'll get tossed to those wild sugar-tooths."
"Most of these Khajiit would make better rugs than crew."
"I say we train those drug-addled lunatics like hounds. They already go for the throat."
"Don't drink the water. Too much runoff sullying it now."
"Boss wants more volunteers. Get moving."
"Anybody tried pickling one of those jellies in the stock? Bet they'd soak it up good"
"Tried a nip of the last batch. It'll take the wind out of your sails."
"If I wanted to brew skooma, I'd have become a barman."
"This one thinks the skooma is cursed. We never should have defiled this place."
"This one only drinks from the shrine fonts. You should too."

The skooma-crazed members of the Fangs also have unique dialogue.

"Show me your guts! Show 'em to me!"
"You won't take me!"
"Knew you were coming! Knew you were all coming for me!"
"<Nauseated murmuring and retching.>"
"<Howling like a wolf, chuffing and raving gibberish.>"
"<Painful, miserable moaning.>"
"<Paranoid muttering, whispering to self.>"
"<Grunting, angry yelled gibberish, exertions as if smashing something.>"
"<Raving slurred gibberish.>"
"<Hysteric giggling and gibberish muttering.>"

Hollowfang VampiresEdit

The Hollowfang Vampires have their own dialogue.

"This one's fur rises at the thought of what blood-mixtures can be made from a Dragon."
"Khajiit dabbles in the blood of many creatures, but never has she experimented on a Dragon."
"Save one for Nisaazda's studies!"
"Nisaazda will show us how to tame the Dragon's blood. Have faith."
"This blood-brew is potent. Trolls taste vile, but you will never feel more alive."
"Do not tell the Clan Mother, but this mixture of swamp toad and skooma will give you sugar-dreams."
"Once the Devourer has consumed its power, he will harvest Dragons enough for us all."
"The blood-mixtures made from the swamp creatures make me want to spit fur."
"Leave their bones for my pets!"
"Drink from my pet again and we'll have words."
"Khajiit kept pets in life, but this bond is stronger."
"Feast, my pets!"
"The Clan Mother gives the first bite to a shave-skin. Are there not Khajiit more deserving?"
"I have the fangs of a viper!"
"Finally, something to do!"
"There should be an etiquette. This one is tired of felling prey only to be the last to feed."
"I have a claw for your heart!"
"Took this poison from a Baandari fresh out of Murkmire. Very effective, but spoils the blood."
"Get them, darlings!"
"This one prefers her thralls to dull-clawed bloodfiends. Too feral."
"These bugs are so eager to drink and be made slaves."
"Obey, blood-thralls!"
"You dare to face me, morsel?"
"My claws will strip the flesh from your bones!"
"We smell your fear!"
"The intruders are close."
"Could a Dragon be made blood-thrall, you think?"
"Such eager prey!"
"Did you see the Devourer's fight with the Dragon? To think our blood could give us such power!"
"Khajiit has venom for your veins!"
"This place is full of moon-riddles and strange Ta'agra. Khajiit does not like it."
"The first taste is mine!"
"This one's pets are stirring. There's prey about."
"Sometimes this one thinks she should have been born a senche."
"Death by a thousand fangs!"
"Dro'zakar is on the prowl. Woe unto the prey he stalks."
"Worse than a Kotu Gava bite, yes?"
"It's the sugar that this one misses most."
"Fighting only makes the poison flow faster!"

Black GullsEdit

The Black Gull slavers of South Guard Ruins have their own dialogue as well.

"Hey, I'll tell you when I've had enough to drink!"
"Damn this humidity! Mauloch's jawbone, I miss Wrothgar."
"Calling me fat? Hrmph. I'll make him a head's weight lighter …."
"Baan Dar's arse, it's quiet. This one needs a good fight!"
"Just one more job, then it's back to the Alik'r. Just one more …."
"Laugh if you want, but I swear that catfish was as big as a senche-raht!"
"Sure, I skim a little off the top. But you'd better keep that to yourself!"
"If that slave mouths off one more time, I'm fetching my shears and cutting his tongue out"
"I don't know what to tell you. If you don't want rats in your pockets, don't keep hunks of cheese in there."
"Could have sworn I heard something. Just the damn rats again."
"This one would kill for a sweetroll. Seriously—who should I kill?"
"Got to watch your step in the shallows nowadays. One of those salamanders almost got me!"
"Wharf rat? Fetching nchow. Nobody calls me a wharf rat. Nobody!"
"Oblivion take that son of a guar. I'll point a knife at whoever I damn well please!"
"Just let those slaves try to escape. This one could use the target practice."
"Shields of Senchal? Heh. Just let them try to block us."
"Where are all the would-be heroes? We need some excitement around here!"
"Where's the damn grog? You better not have drunk it all!"
"Salted pork, salted pork, always salted pork! Can we get some greens around here?"
"Scrawny jekosiits …. Eat a steak for Mara's sake."
"Guard duty. Hmph. What a waste of time."
"Cats and their sugar. Where can a man find a decent kabob around here?"
"Dragons … feh. I dare one of those lizards to come tangle with us."
"Ugh. I don't even want to know what the cook put in that stew."
"More moldy bread? That does it. I'm on the next ship to Summerset."
"Rats aren't so bad. Sure, they carry diseases, but who here doesn't?"
"Keep a sharp eye, mate. Too many newcomers prowling about."
"Who's got the water skin? It's too damned hot down here …."
"Never seen a dragon before. Way I hear it, they could swallow a whale in one gulp!"
"Ugh. One more hour till my shift's over. One more hour …."
"Heard there's a hurricane bearing down on us. Make sure everything's tied down, eh?"
"Fifteen gold says this one can strike a frog's eye at fifty paces. Any takers?"
"Bastard wants to eyeball me? This one's got two arrows to fix that problem."
"Slaves, mudcrabs, lazy hackwings …. I need a real challenge!"
"Anybody up for a game of dice? I'm falling asleep here …."

New Moon CultistsEdit

"Ra'khajin revealed the path. Now we must walk it."
"The New Moon rises … as do we."
"Blessed New Moon, speak the word, and this one shall drown Elsweyr in blood."
"We shall tear the old Pellitine apart, stone by stone."
"The old gods will disappear in ash and blood. Hail the New Moon!"

Icereach CovenEdit

The reachmen on Icereach can be heard talking.

"Let the Nords come, I say. More blood for the Coven."
"Keep an eye out for the bear-woman. Big as an ox, she is!"
"They'll never take this island away from us. Never."
"Icereach for the Reachmen!"
"That storm … I've never seen anything like it."
"Nord scum? Kill them!"
"Time to die!"
"A nice warm goat shank. That's what I need."
"Trespassers! After them!"


The graverobbing Draugrkin can be overheard in the Unhallowed Grave.

"Ugh. This ash … my boots are full of it!"
"Meddling bastards! Put a knife in them!"
"Oh, you got one of those new grapple bows? Lucky bastard."
"On your feet, Draugrkin! Get them!"
"Bones, bones … it's like a damned kennel in here."
"You think you can steal from us?"
"The one who hired us? I hear even Kjalnar's scared of him!"
"Intruders! Bury them like the others!"
"If you die down here, I'll raise you as a thrall!"
"Look lively, now! Intruders!"
"Ugh, this place is too damned hot."
"Look! More corpses!"
"Way I hear it, they buried something else down here. Something big."

Riften RatwayEdit

The vampires in the Riften Ratwat can be overheard.

"I'm bored. I need a throat to rip out."
"I am meant for more important tasks than these."
"I thirst."
"Soon everything will be in place."
"The next prey is mine."
"Find your own shadow. This spot is mine."
"My fangs for a decent meal!"
"That witch gave me a look."
"Too many ceremonies for my taste."
"Tell me the word has been sent."
"I smell fresh blood!"
"All this waiting gets on my nerves."
"My thirst must be sated!"
"I crave blood!"

Greymoor VampiresEdit

Shadowgreen ReachmenEdit

"Let us give the mountain a taste for Nord blood!"
"Og il dunna travern. Shal shug oh pater noch."
"Drown the Nord-swine in the hot blood of the mountain!"
"The vines whisper of intruders in our midst. Be wary."
"Call upon the blessed warmth of light for us, and the wrath of flame and stone for the Nord."
"Feed the mountain to bursting!"
"Fir co non madoora. Fir na nog camare!"
"Mind what you grab for kindling. The spriggans loathe those Nords as we do."
"The sun will soon set on the kingdoms of Nords."

Stone GardenEdit


"I don't care if they are our guests. The werewolves need to stop shedding in the lab."
"Hear about that explosion yesterday? No, another one."
"I've been itching for a fight! Least I hope that's what it was."
"Hey! Keep out of the laboratory!"
"Arkasis is going to change the world. Into what, I don't know."
"They say the first step to learning alchemy is to start putting things in your mouth."
"Careful taking kit from potion storage. I don't see'em washing those bottles."
"Might want to wait a moment between drinking those. They react poorly."
"I don't know. Arkasis doesn't seem that crazy."
"Would it kill them to label what could kill us?"

Entering combat:

"You can't stop progress!"
"I've been meaning to try this poison!"
"Durzog's are getting dinner tonight!"
"Found some spies!"
"Spare a few for the laboratory!"
"Found some fungus feed!"

Castle ThornEdit


"The blood tastes fresher when they are scared."
"Something about Argonian blood tastes off to me."
"The wood from Skyrim makes the strongest bows."
"The Lady deserves our trust and our blades."
"Even I get lost when walking around this castle."
"Our blessing will kill them all. Slowly."
"Even hunting rats would be more fun than this."
"Her blood holds power to shape as we wish."
"Those new vampires shouldn't be possible. And yet, they exist."
"The Lady wishes to explore more avenues of power."
"The fiends smell a bit ripe after a while."

Entering combat:

"We shall bleed you dry!"
"Our Lady demands a feast!"
"Interlopers? In our Lady's home?"
"Your death shall not be quiet!"
"A meal for the pets!"
"You cannot interrupt Vaduroth's harvest!"
"Hearty stock for Vaduroth!"
"You were not invited!"
