How do the shout recharges work?
I can't see an explanation in-game.

example : call dragon, 5, 5, 300

what does each number mean?

How many seconds it takes until you can use another shout.
Master Kieru Dec 17, 2013 @ 12:03pm 
each shout has 3 words, the longer the press the button the more words you'll shout.
for example 5 10 30 = FUS ROH DAH

5 seconds > 1 word = FUS
10 seconds > 2 words = FUS ROH
30 seconds > 3 words = FUS ROH DAH

First number is for first word, second for first 2 words and third for all words.

So how come I had a quick recharge after calling the dragon? then used dragonrend 10s later?

did you really called the dragon? used the 3 words ? Because it takes minutes to recharge.

The first time you use the shout, to trap Ohdahviing in Dragonsreach, it has no recharge, I think.

Aaah yes ! If you called Ohdahviing for the quest, you'll see that it instantly recharges the shout bar so you can use dragonrend on him and trap him.

I can't find documentation for it in the UESP article on Dragon Shouts[www.uesp.net], but I believe it means the first word recharges in 5 seconds (real time), the second in 5 seconds, and the third in 5 minutes. The times seem to run concurrently, so that the entire shout recharges in 5 minutes, but I never timed it. (In the UESP article, ‘recharge’ = ‘cool down’.)

The Talos amulet helps reduce recharge time.

... as do the Blessings of Talos (at a Talos shrine).
