    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***

    You must be in the outdoors within Skyrim (no dungeons or other-worldly dimensions), have the Shout fully upgraded (3 dragon souls needed) and an open space, like the open plains near Whiterun; in order to work. Make sure you face the ground and hold down RB until it is cast. (Although there are reports you can summon him in the Soul Cairn as soon as you get the Shout)

    The summoning Shout will take at least 5 minutes to reload, however, by waiting 1 hour and casting again should easily make you achieve this in less than 5 minutes. (Thanks TuomasP)

    Everytime you summon the dragon he will grant you the Soul tear shout at first, and the second and third levels afterwards.

    KilldbyNecropsyI'm in the same situation as other it seems. I never learned the shout.

    Stevo6483Just to point out it's not during the Chasing Echos quest, it's actually during the last section of the following quest "Beyond Death". Can't believe nobody else has mentioned this before wink

    ZX KNIGHTJust to add to what other people are saying - it's not just being outdoors - you need to be in front of an open area of land that is large enough for the Dragon to appear on to, so being on a dock, for instance, won't work.

    This achievement is really easy and quick to get. Spoilers Below!

    After you completed the quest ' Chasing Echo's ' and defeated the dragon Durnehviir he will give you a shout to summon him. To unlock the shout you will need to use dragon souls so go to Magic > Shouts > Summon Durnehviir and press (x) to unlock all 3 words.

    Once you've unlocked all 3 words go to an open area (Can't be in a city or dungeon, I did it outside Whiterun) then use the Summon Durnehviir shout. You have to look at the ground when you do it. He will appear in front of you and then you can just wait 3 hours and repeat the process.

    The achievement will pop right after you do it the 3rd time.

    Subliminal CutsAwesome comment above, I thought it had glitched, so face the ground to summon

    Spud Sud SewdJust thought I would add that you can summon him in the Soul Cairn as soon as you get the shout, if you have three souls with you to unlock the shout. Just shout at some free space in the cairn and wait a couple of hours after each time you summon him and the achievement will unlock even before returning to skyrim.
