Shouts take too long to recharge even if you use the first level.
The only one that is useful if you dont have a weapon is Clear Skies as that staggers the enemy and has a really short cool down.
Storm call is good but takes WAAAAY too long to recharge to use it as a combat only shout. --- HOLY ****! What is this? Forged in Gods very flames! Do mine eyes tell me lies? A new Elder Scrolls game? Time is nigh, I must fly, Venture forth on my quest!
