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):
______________________________________________________________________________

Changed Dur 10/20/30 to 10/15/20

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

Cyclone (DB) --- Unchanged on account I've never even found this shout before...

Changed FX Disarm01 - Disarms to level 15 (first word)

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).

Elemental Fury
Changed CD 30/40/50 to 40/35/30
Changed Dur 15/15/15 to 15/20/30

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?

Whirlwind Sprint
Changed CD 20/25/35 to 15/10/5
______________________________________________________________________________

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.

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.
Rave Heartlock 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.
