Features and Changes
  • Completing “The Way of the Voice” allows your shouts to scale with your level, up to 50%.
  • Shouts whose purpose is similar are grouped under categories, such as Crowd Control, Offensive, Summon, Support and Utility. Most of the shouts’ cooldowns are consistent under above-mentioned categories, with some exceptions.
  • New Inventory Models for all Shouts.
  • Shouts don’t benefit from Magic Perks.
  • Voice of the Sky blessing replaced with Pilgrim of the Voice.
  • Call of Valor heroes level scales with the player, from a min. of 25 to a max of 50. Stats and equipment are also improved to be more reasonable.
  • Dismay changed to be an AoE shout.
  • Drain Vitality absorbs attributes.
  • Battle Fury and Elemental Fury Weapon Speed bug fixed.
  • Kyne's Peace changed to be an AoE Calm shout. It affects NPCs too.
  • Whirlwind Sprint also improves your Movement Speed.
  • Dragonborn Flame's Fire Wyrm attacks only enemies and won't stay in the same spot anymore.
  • Dragonborn Force doesn’t disintegrate enemies anymore.
  • Dragonborn Frost improves Ice Form too. Frost Breath doesn’t encase targets in ice anymore, instead it summons a Frost Wyrm, like Dragonborn Flame.
