Soo you can use 3 spells at a time?

Thats really cool :). Especially for a mage character. I mean a Fire ball turns to stream of fire if you hold it soo it could go up to 5 spells right? I would probably have a glyph spell in one hand and a ranged/stream spell in the other one.

Unless they introduce a new race with three arms then I doubt it.

Except that dragon shouts are spells dont you think? You can use a total of 3 spells plus the ones they can divide to.

I think of the dragon shouts more as scripted spells, rather that just 'basically spells but not called spells'. The spells you can tweak to your preference (at least in the previous ES games) and make them as strong or as big as you want, to a degree, but the dragon shouts are all completely unique effects (slowing time) that you can't alter or use to create new spells with.
If you're cast on thin ice, you may as well dance.

thats assuming drangon shouts are locked in and pre scripted to only one simple affect.

just becuase they are unique and you can't make your own tweaked version, that doesnt mean they will never change / increase in power / intensity / time. like getting stronger with you.

like time slow lasting longer at some point. or slowing down time more than it used to.

or say a push one starting as a simple knockback , and slowly becoming almost a throw back with stun or something like that.

basically, just becuase its a story driven, one "named" spell for the whole game. doesnt mean it can progress and change in a leveling up manner.

i think that it would be a good idea for them to work like that anyways.

I agree. I think I'd like to see the dragon shouts progress with character development.

Yeah now that I think about it the first dragon shout you get would either be ridiculously OP if it lasts you till the end of the game until the higher levels without needing improvement, or ridiculously UP if it only lasts you a few levels after you get it... So it makes sense they'd level up with you.

If I remember correctly, there is no longer a "create your own spell" system in Skyrim where you can mix a strength debuff with fire damage and a self buff to magic, or whatever.

From what has been said in interviews, there are around 85 spells and an undetermined amount of those spells can be used in various ways: a fire spell can throw a fireball, spout a flamethrower like effect, possibly be planted on the ground like a magic fire mine.

Its been mentioned in interviews that there is a possibility that you can perform spell combos by equipping both hands with different spells, or the same spell, to have a number of effects.

Dragon shouts are strings of three words in the draconic language that you learn throughout the game. Its unknown whether these words can be mixed or arranged in different orders to have different effects. The two dragon shouts that have been revealed are an aoe knockback and a short range stealth teleport.

They've already answred the question about making Dragon Shouts stronger.
First you must kill a dragon and absorb its soul. This will allow you to learn a Dragon Shout.
While you are exploring you will find ruined walls with dragon writing on them. One of the words on each wall will stand out to your character as part of a shout.
Finding the first word enables you to use the shout, and finding the other 2 words makes it stronger.

I just slowing time down doesn't slow down your character as well. That defeats the whole purpose of having that ability.
