Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Word Of Power/Dragon Shouts Guide

Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Word Of Power/Dragon Shouts Guide
One of the most exciting new aspects of Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is the new Dragon Shouts/Word of Power abilities, this guide will list locations of currently found Shouts and any other appropriate information. Please feel free to leave a comment and help us build up this list. If you want to find a Dragon Shout, you can use a non-offensive Dragon Shout in any town and you may get a letter with a quest to get the shout. Alternatively you can speak with Arngeir to see if they’ve discovered any more.

Also, when you first find a shrine, you will get the first word in that Shout, regardless of what location you’re at. This means that the info in the guide may not match your discoveries exactly but it still works to find all 3 words.

Shout: Unrelenting Force – Thanks to Guest Hero Z
Effect: Knock people back a bit and do some damage
Location: Once you arrive in Riverwood go to the Riverwood trader. Talk to him and he will give you a quest to kill some bandits in the mountains. This will send you to Bleak Falls Burrow. Go in there and clear it out. Once you get to the end you should get a chest and see the Word of Power on the wall. Click it to gain the shout. After that a strong enemy will bust out of his casket. Kill him and leave with the shout.

Shout: Ice Form
Effect: Freezes an opponent solid
Location: College of Winterhold. You need to begin the quest line that makes you apply to the College. Progress through and eventually Tolfdir will give you a quest to help excavate some nearby ruins. It’s a very simple quest and won’t pose much challenge to anyone with average gear. There is a puzzle midway that is a bit tedious, there are 4 pillars with the familiar designs on them. South East once, North-West twice, South-East once, if you get it wrong it will reset. The rest of the quest is simple, once you reach the end you interact with the wall the same way you did during the main quest line.
