Description
I am no longer modding and as such all these mods are as-is, without a chance for update or bug fixes. RL has taken me off the grid as far as modding goes, I'm sorry to all affected.
__________

This mod aims to make shouts a viable and active tool in fighting, rather than a rarely used skill.

Ever feel like shouts were underpowered, and over penalized. For such a central focus of the game, it is hard to make them a part of strategy.

IT REQUIRES DAWNGUARD AND DRAGONBORN
-Wasn't thinking when I started, and made it a full-scale mod first, rather than making a smaller one to include DG/DB later... Due to the work invested, I won't be re-doing this for just Vanilla//Vanilla+DG//Vanilla+DB

Here is the codex:
CD - means cool down // Dur - means duration, the length of the effect.
-----20/30/40 - 20seconds 1st word, 30seconds 2nd word, 40seconds 3rd word.
Dmg - damage
-----10/14/18 means 10 damage with word 1, 14 damage with second word, 18 damage with all three words.
FX - effects of the shout. Either the levels affected by the thu'um were changed (like disarm) or the entire shout was re-worked (Like Become Ethereal). If necessary, I adjusted the in-game wording to be accurate, but still lore-friendly (using the eloquent wording and flaire)
All FX changed are explained.

h/s/m - health / stamina /magicka (used only for the drain life shout, also explained there as well)
______________________________________________________________________________
And the main event, the full list of changes (and some untouched):
______________________________________________________________________________

Battle Fury (DB)
Change CD 20/30/40 to 20/25/30

Become Ethereal -- I found this to be useless in vanilla, so I made it useful. At least for me.
Changed CD 20/30/40 to 30/25/20
Changed Dur 08/13/18 to 10/15/20
Changed FX Ethereal to Invisibility/Muffle-.25/.5/1.0 (a muffle of 1.0 makes your footsteps 100% silent)

Bend Will -- Unchanged because I've never used it...

Call Dragon
Changed CD 05/05/180 to 05/05/45

Call of Valor
Changed CD 180/180/180 to 45/45/45

Clear Skies
Changed CD 05/10/15 to 05/05/05

Dragon Aspect (DB)
Changed CD 05/05/05 to 30/45/60
Removed "Only once a day" Restriction.
Changed Dur 300/300/300 to 180/180/180

Dragonrend --- Unchanged - Custom effect, low cooldown, the shout already fit the bill

Drain Vitality (DG)
Changed CD 30/60/90 to 20/25/30
Changed Dur 30/30/30 to 15/20/25
Changed FX All stages drain health/stamina/magicka (h/s/m).

Fire Breath
Changed CD 30/50/100 to 30/25/20
Changed Dmg 50/70/90 to 35/50/75 -- Nerfed the damage to compensate the (extremely compared to the original) quick recharge. The strongest form is as powerful as incinerate with augmented flames perk.

Frost Breath
Changed CD 30/50/100 to 30/25/20
Changed Dmg 10/14/18 to 10/15/20 (Per second)

Changed CD 60/90/120 to 30/45/60
Changed Dmg 02/02/02 to 05/06/07 (Per second)

Kyne's Peace --- Unchanged - Did not feel like working out the custom effects just yet, nor have I ever really used it... May re-work as a healing shout, since there are none of that variety... Thoughts?

______________________________________________________________________________

Any critique would be helpful, any issues I would like noted. Easiest way to let me know of issues is by message.

As I play around with the mod myself, I may come back to change C/D's and effects. (Especially Cyclone....)
______________________________________________________________________________
I HAVE NOT USED ANY OTHER SHOUT-MODIFYING MODS AT THE SAME TIME AS THIS ONE. IF YOU DO, I RECOMMEND CAUTION, AND THAT THE OTHER MOD BE PLACED AFTER MINE IN LOAD ORDER. NO GARUNTEES THAT WOULD WORK, OR IF IT WOULD WORK CORRECTLY. REMEMBER, USING MODS IS A CHOICE YOU MAKE, AND A RISK YOU TAKE.

@Linear Paradox: I don't work on my mods anymore. The only advice I can offer is make sure the mod is lower in the order than any other mod that might affect the shout. If that doesn't work than an update, bugfix, or my mod itself isnt allowing the change.

Dragon Aspect (DB) Is still being restricted to once/day for me

thank u for the mod

Sorry, was on holiday, I've reworked the description. I hope this is less confusing. the =&gt; was supposed to be an = witha 'greater than' symbol to make an arrow pointing right... Apparently the 'greater than' symbol isnt recognized.

I also agree. I have no idea what you mean.
Acid / Rave Jun 10, 2013 @ 1:03am 
I agree, all I can think of this meaning is that you've changed the shout recovery times and not actually changed the shouts themselves?

Hey symphmetalmarine: Just a minor suggestion for this mod's description, could you possibly list the changes made to each shout in plain terms? I don't know if it's just me or what, but I can't really understand what things mean like:

Changed CD 20/30/40 =&gt; 15/20/25
Chnaged Dur 60/60/60 =&gt; 15/30/45


Again, just a suggestion.
