    I still think you need to make sure you're going to Wulfgar and not Argneir... you seem to be referring to them interchangeably and they're not the same individual.

    Well, they are all three standing around the lettering, i go to all of them and argneir keep saying" first wulfgar will teach you the word of power" then i turn around and talk to wulfgar (who is standing over the glowing lettering) and he just waves his hands over it and bows..and nothing happens

    "I have a similar problem but all of the Greybeard are collected in the circle and the words are already on the ground. I've stood here for 20 minutes now,and it seems that I still can't learn it. Angier has already said "But first, you must learn the final word of Unrelenting Force" or something to that affect. None of that is working. What's a guy gotta do?"-Tallia_32

    He wrote samething on these forums awhile back, he may of explained it better

    Is there something else that's preventing you from properly interacting with them?

    Bounty?

    Vampirism?

    Ebony Mail?

    i dont believe so because, Alfgar tells me that wulfgar is about to show me the word of power and then wulfgar just stands there...If i have a bounty in any city, does that mean they wont do it for me? Because i may have..I really just dont know..

    It's worth checking into if you have the time. I don't think it would affect it, but at this point, you've seemed to have exhausted everything else.

    What about Vampirism or the Ebony Mail?

    But there is one thing that didnt make sense is, under the quests it said retrive the horn and it has an X next to it..But when i went to wulfgar it said i gave it to him and he walked me over to teach me the word..Not sure if that has something to do with it..

    If you pickpocket Arngier, do you see the horn in his inventory? Remember, Arngier, not Wulfgar. If he does, see if you can pickpocket it and give it back to him. Or take it, leave, come back and see if the quest restarts.

    All my previous playthroughs, I never bothered to re-check the possessions of the Greybeards, so no idea if the item disappears or not from their inventory.

    Well Vampirism or Sanguinare Vampiris, depending on what stage you're on does have a negative reaction to others you interact with. Double check your active effects to be sure. I don't know with 100% certainty whether or not the Greybeards would attack you on sight when you're suffering from Stage IV Vampirism, most other NPCs will.

    The Ebony Mail has an AOE effect when equipped that inflicts poison damage to those around you.

    ... Leaving work for the day, hopefully you get this sorted out soon. I'll check back later this evening.

    Ok, if there is an "X" next to the "Retrieve Horn" or whatever part in your quest jounral, then I may have an idea. After you "got" the Horn did you go talk to Delphine in Riverwood?

    Ah ok nevermind then. So you did the quest at the Thalmor Embassy and everything right? I thought maybe the X next to that meant that you didn't get the horn from Delphine, but I guess I was wrong haha.

    That's wierd. Ok lets walk through the steps here, because now I am so determined figure this out. In Jorgen Windcaller's tomb, you don't actually get the horn (This is the reason that the game puts an X next to that part of the quest in your journal). There is a note from a mysterious person in its place telling you to rent the attic room in Riverwood. Did you go to The Sleeping Giant in Riverwood and "Rent the Attic Room?"
