Personalized Dragon Shouts

    I noticed in 2013 there was a bit of a Dragon Shout competition and I couldn’t help but wonder has anyone’s perspectives changed on the available shouts in game.

    If you could form your own shouts for either In Game, RP, or even to use in a story, what shouts would you have?

    Personally I would have three new shouts:

             Wolf Aspect                         Sacred Grove                          Dragon Heal                           

    Jusk     Iisk     Grohiik           Rum   Fuhil   Lahniv          Vrii      Qeth    Vokren  

    Claw    Fang   Wolf                  Root   Leaf   Thrive             Scale   Bone   Mend          


    Wolf aspect would increase the speed and power of your werewolf form for 30 seconds and cause an instant change to your werewolf form.

    Sacred Grove would be a passive shout enabling crops to grow within seconds, or a tree or even vines which could entrap an enemy, even a dragon pinning it in place for several seconds. Enough for you to implement an escape.    

    Dragon Heal would be for using on a friendly dragon. It would work by drawing some of your health and transferring it to the dragon which you shouted at. The effect would be the same as when you absorb a dragon except it would be reversed (And red coloured).

    What shouts would you create if you could?

    I'd change Whirlwind Sprint, I've always found that shout almost useless and the cooldown is stupidly long for what it does.

    Instead of the current 'thrust' that is so hard to control and pinpoint I'd change it to a time based speed boost instead...

    1 Word: 20% Increase in Movement Speed for 10 seconds

    2 Words: 30% Increase in Movement Speed for 15 seconds

    3 Words: 40% Increase in Movement Speed for 20 seconds

    Cooldown around the same as Become Ethereal.

    I like how whirlwind sprint functions, but I dislike its high cool down time relative to what it does. If its cool down was cut in half itd be far more useful IMO.

    What I would change with Whirlwind sprint would be the fact that you can't hit an opponent with it. Imagine if you struck an opponent as you shot passed/ into them. BLAM!!!

    That would make sense, after all, if the audio is to be believed, you are breaking the soundwall when using the shout. Anyone nearby, or in your path would definitively notice you.

    I think you're already kind of able to do that, provided you have a shield and the shield charge perk. If I recall correctly, raising your shield just as you shout causes you to bowl over everyone in your path.

    Let's see, I honestly loved Miraak's shout, where he absorbs the lifeforce of a dragon, it may be a bit Op to have yourself but I would have loved to use that on Alduin.

    But hmm...

    Call Warlord:

    Sulekh Morokei Konahrik = Powerful Glorious Warlord

    Blade of Auri-el:

    Pah Werid Shul = Everyone Praise the Sun


    Zahrahmiik Daniik Sos = Sacrifice of Doomed Blood

    Call Warlord: Call upon Shor himself to aid you in battle, Once he arrives Shor calls upon some of his many avatars, among which you could find Ysgramor and perhaps even Talos.

    Blade of Auri-el: Call upon a great godray of doom, destroying any undead in it's path without harming the living.

    Sacrifice: When used upon an Undead minion, the minion is destroyed but 50% of it's remaining stats are transfered to you.

    I never knew that. I'll have to have a bash at it... :)

    I'd like that meteor shower shout that alduin has. Also an earthquake one with a stagger effect like Windshear, where all targets would fall over. Gol qeth kreh. Earth bone bend

    On the other side of the scale you could even widen a stream or make it deeper. It would be amusing to fight some bandits in a stream and all of a sudden their half drowning. Especialy if your an Argonian. Or even a bear or Sabre cat fall in a pit where you can just shoot it from above.

    I was thinking of a story with something like this, actually. The main idea for it came to me when I thought of a Shout.

    Spaan Jaaril Tendrok - Shield Protect Barrier

    Lahspaan Jaaril Tendrok - Ward Protect Barrier

    So the first one would make a force field of sorts around you that would protect from physical damage, while the second one would make a giant ward bubble that would protect against magic.

    Well I think disarm needs to scale with illusion or somethign so it can be used on higher enemies

    as for custom shout

    Spirit Mend

       Kun  Vokrii Vahraan

    Light Restore Heal

    rank1: Heals caster for 70 points

    rank2: Heals caster for 120 points and nearby allies for 50

    rank 3: heals caster for 170 poinnts and nearby allies for 90

    I always thought it would be cool to learn that shout-like poison attack the Afflicted from Peryite's quest know. Here's my interpretation of it:

    Breath of Corruption 

    Slen-Liiv-Krasaar ("Flesh-Wither-Sickness") 

    1 Word: Does 3 damage per second to the health of one enemy for 30 seconds 

    2 Words: Does 5 damage per second to the health of one enemy and slows by 50% for 30 seconds 

    3 Words: Does 7 damage to the health of one enemy and slows by 50% for 30 seconds; if the enemy dies under this effect the poison transfers to any enemy within 15 feet. 

    Cooldown similar to Fire/Frost Breath

    More alteration based shouts would be helpful.

    What would an alteration-based shout even do, though?

    A poison attack would be rather cool. I always have fun with the poison ring in Morrowind. Toxic Cloud. 10 seconds of poison in an area.

    Rather than it being a single target I'd have the dragon shout form as a green toxic mist that coves an area for several seconds.
