About this mod

This mod improves and balances the shouts increasing usefulness and decreasing some cooldowns.

Permissions and credits
Introduction :

It is strange how weak the shouts are in vanilla, your strength is supposed to be your tongue and voice on top of your sword and shield, this mod fixes this.

********** Vanilla Dragon Shouts **********

Animal Allegiance

Lvl 1: Radius: 75ft->150ft Maxlvl: lvl20->lvl20 Dur: 30sec->60sec Cd: 50sec->30sec
Lvl 2: Radius: 150ft->300ft Maxlvl: lvl20->lvl30 Dur: 45sec->90sec Cd: 60sec->50sec
Lvl 3: Radius: 250ft->500ft Maxlvl: lvl20->lvl50 Dur: 60sec->120sec Cd: 70sec->70sec

Too low radius did not fit the high cooldown for this shout, so I improved it.

Aura Whisper

Lvl 1: Radius: 500ft->500ft Dur: 10sec->8sec Cd: 30sec->10sec
Lvl 2: Radius: 500ft->500ft Dur: 20sec->12sec Cd: 40sec->15sec
Lvl 3: Radius: 500ft->500ft Dur: 30sec->20sec Cd: 50sec->25sec

It is an utility shout which demanded high cooldown, and we did not need that high duration

Become Ethereal

Lvl 1: Dur: 8sec->10sec Cd: 30sec->15sec
Lvl 2: Dur: 13sec->15sec Cd: 40sec->20sec
Lvl 3: Dur: 18sec->20sec Cd: 50sec->25sec

Changed a bit the duration and cooldown 

Call Odahviing

Lvl 1: Cd: 5sec->5sec
Lvl 2: Cd: 5sec->5sec
Lvl 3: Cd: 300sec->150sec

Dragons are powerful we get it but 5 minutes were too long that no one decides to summon them

Call of Valor

Lvl 1: Dur: 60sec->120sec Cd: 180sec->90sec
Lvl 2: Dur: 60sec->120sec Cd: 180sec->90sec
Lvl 3: Dur: 60sec->120sec Cd: 180sec->90sec

It wasn't a good enough shout as a reward for completing the main quest, so I modified it that the hero you summon stays permanently unless you use other shouts.

Clear Skies

No changes needed.


Lvl 1: Maxlvl: 12->15 Cd: 30sec->15sec
Lvl 2: Maxlvl: 20->30 Cd: 35sec->20sec
Lvl 3: Maxlvl: 30->50 Cd: 40sec->30sec

Max level was too low and cooldowns a bit high.


Lvl 1: Maxlvl: 7->15 Dur: 30sec->30sec Cd: 40sec->20sec
Lvl 2: Maxlvl: 15->25 Dur: 30sec->30sec Cd: 45sec->30sec
Lvl 3: Maxlvl: 24->40 Dur: 30sec->30sec Cd: 50sec->40sec

Max level was too low and yet cooldowns were high plus this shout is hard to complete

Dragon Rend

No changes needed.

Elemental Fury

Lvl 1: Aspd: 1.3x->1.4x Dur: 15sec->15sec Cd: 30sec->20sec
Lvl 2: Aspd: 1.5x->1.7x Dur: 15sec->15sec Cd: 40sec->30sec
Lvl 3: Aspd: 1.7x->2.0x Dur: 15sec->15sec Cd: 50sec->40sec

It is one of the balanced and useful shouts, but people tend to leave it once they get artifacts or enchanted weapons so I buffed it a bit

Fire Breath

Lvl 1: Damage: 50>150  Cd: 30sec->20sec
Lvl 2: Damage: 70>300 Cd: 50sec->30sec
Lvl 3: Damage: 100>750  Cd: 100sec->60sec

Compared to other shouts that we use to enhance our character, this shout is too weak, especially in higher difficulties so I decreased cooldown greatly and boosted its damage combined with "Yol the fire within" the complete shout deals 1.500 damage so the early words are not broken but yet the complete shout can 1 shot like how its supposed to be
Also it was disappointing how soul tear was stronger than fire breath

Frost Breath

Lvl 1: Damage: 10/sec->10/sec Dur: 5sec->10sec Slow: 50%->50% Cd: 30sec->30sec 
Lvl 2: Damage: 14/sec->10/sec Dur: 5sec->15sec Slow: 50%->70% Cd: 50sec->50sec
Lvl 3: Damage: 18/sec->10/sec Dur: 5sec->20sec Slow: 50%->90% Cd: 100sec->70sec

Since it is a utility shout I boosted the utility without giving too much boost to the damage.

Ice Form

Lvl 1: Damage: 2/sec->5/sec Dur: 15sec->10sec Cd: 60sec->30sec
Lvl 2: Damage: 2/sec->7/sec Dur: 30sec->15sec Cd: 90sec->50sec
Lvl 3: Damage: 2/sec->10/sec Dur: 60sec->20sec Cd: 120sec->70sec

Paralysis in general in skyrim is too broken, so I nerfed this shout and lowered the CD

Kyne's Peace

Lvl 1: Radius: 75ft->150ft Maxlvl: lvl20->lvl20 Dur: 60sec->90sec       Cd: 40sec->20sec
Lvl 2: Radius: 150ft->300ft Maxlvl: lvl20->lvl35 Dur: 120sec->120sec Cd: 50sec->30sec
Lvl 3: Radius: 250ft->500ft Maxlvl: lvl20->lvl50 Dur: 180sec->150sec Cd: 60sec->40sec

Not the most useful shout, tweaked it a bit

Marked for Death

Lvl 1: Damage: 1/sec->5/sec Dur: 60sec->60sec Armor: -25->-50 Cd: 20sec->20sec 
Lvl 2: Damage: 2/sec->5/sec Dur: 60sec->90sec Armor: -50->-115 Cd: 30sec->30sec
Lvl 3: Damage: 3/sec->5/sec Dur: 60sec->120sec Armor: -75->-200 Cd: 40sec->40sec

Tweaked it a bit, it was already useful so I buffed it by not much

Slow Time

Lvl 1: Slow: 70%->80% Dur: 8sec->5sec Cd: 30sec->20sec
Lvl 1: Slow: 80%->90% Dur: 12sec->10sec Cd: 45sec->40sec
Lvl 1: Slow: 90%->99% Dur: 16sec->15sec Cd: 60sec->60sec

It was already so strong in vanilla, but it was missing the feeling of stopping time, now it literally stops time if you use the complete shout. but had to nerf it if I do so.

Storm Call

Lvl 1: Damage per thunderbolt: 40->40 Dur: 60sec->60secCd: 300sec->120sec
Lvl 2: Damage per thunderbolt: 60->60 Dur: 120sec->120sec Cd: 480sec->180sec
Lvl 3: Damage per thunderbolt: 80->80 Dur: 180sec->180sec Cd: 600sec->240sec

Greatly reduced the cooldown

Throw Voice

No changes needed.

Unrelenting Force

Lvl 1: Damage: 2->10 Cd: 15sec->15sec
Lvl 2: Damage: 5->20 Cd: 20sec->20sec
Lvl 3: Damage: 10->50 Cd: 45sec->30sec

The most used shout, just added some base damage to it. 

Whirlwind Sprint

Lvl 1: Cd: 20sec->10sec
Lvl 2: Cd: 25sec->15sec
Lvl 3: Cd: 35sec->20sec

Cd reduction needed for an utility shout.

================ Word Meditation Shouts Abilities ================

Fus: Force Without Effort

- You stagger 25% less and foes stagger 25% more. (Augments power attacks and Unrelenting Force shout.)

Balanced and powerful

Feim: Eternal Spirit

- While Ethereal, you recover health (25%->200%) faster. (Only active and visible on Active Effects menu when using Become Ethereal shout.)

Now being ethereal can be useful to regenerate health then get back to battle.

Yol: The Fire Within

- Fire Breath shout deals (25%>100%) more damage.

People all the time pick Fus over Yol so I had to buff it enough to make you think which one should you have

=============== Dawnguard Dragon Shouts ===============

Drain Vitality

Lvl 1: Damage to Stamina & Magicka & Health: 5-0-0/sec->6-0-0/sec Dur: 30sec->30sec Cd: 30sec->30sec
Lvl 2: Damage to Stamina & Magicka & Health: 5-5-0/sec->8-8-0/sec Dur: 30sec->30sec Cd: 60sec->45sec
Lvl 3: Damage to Stamina & Magicka & Health: 5-5-5/sec->10-10-10/sec Dur: 30sec->30sec Cd: 90sec->60sec

Tweaked it, wasn't that strong

Soul Tear

Lvl 1: Damage: 0->0 Cd: 5sec->5sec
Lvl 2: Damage: 0->0 Cd: 5sec->5sec
Lvl 3: Damage: 300->300 Cd: 90sec->60sec

Damage is fine, it's supposed to be a finisher shout so I did not increase the damage.

Summon Durnehviir

Lvl 1: Cd: 5sec->5sec
Lvl 2: Cd: 5sec->5sec
Lvl 3: Cd: 300sec->150sec

As with Call Dragon shout, the CD has been reduced form excessive 5 min, to a more reasonable 3 min.

=============== Dragonborn Dragon Shouts ===============

Battle Fury

Lvl 1: Aspd: 1.3x->1.4x Dur: 60sec->30sec Cd: 20sec->20sec
Lvl 2: Aspd: 1.5x->1.7x Dur: 120sec->45sec Cd: 30sec->30sec
Lvl 3: Aspd: 1.7x->2.0x Dur: 180sec->60sec Cd: 40sec->40sec

Buffed the speed to match Elemental fury, duration was too high, was too OP if you know how to use it properly so I decreased the duration

Bend Will

Lvl 1: Cd: 5sec->5sec
Lvl 2: Cd: 90sec->60sec
Lvl 3: Cd: 120sec->90sec

Lowered CDs, they were too high.


Lvl 1: Damage: 50->100 Cd: 30sec->30sec
Lvl 2: Damage: 75->175 Cd: 45sec->45sec
Lvl 3: Damage: 100->250 Cd: 60sec->60sec

Quite a powerful shout.

Dragon Aspect

Lvl 1: PowerAttack Bonus: 25%->50% Armor: 25->50 Fire&Frost Resist: 0%->0% Shout CD Reduction: 0%->0% Duration: 300sec->300secCd: 1day->1day 
Lvl 2: PowerAttack Bonus: 25%->50% Armor: 100->150 Fire&Frost Resist: 25%->25% Shout CD Reduction: 0%->0% Duration: 300sec->300sec Cd: 1day->1day
Lvl 3: PowerAttack Bonus: 25%->100% Armor: 100->250 Fire&Frost Resist: 25%->50% Shout CD Reduction: 20%->25% Duration: 300sec->300sec Cd: 1day->1day

Made it a powerful shout the way it was supposed to be.

================ Black Book Epistolary Acumen Shout Abilities ================

Dragonborn Force

- Your Unrelenting Force shout does 3 times as much damage.

Dragonborn Flame

Made no changes, because I boosted the fire breath shout too much already, this was used as a finisher to summon the wymer, now you just 1 shot and still summon it.

Dragonborn Frost

- Your Frost Breath Shout encases foes in ice for (15/15/15->10/15/20) seconds.

Changed the duration to match the shout's
