I can't unlock/use other Shouts?

#1StriderVMPosted 12/15/2011 7:10:22 PM
My character is currently on Level 59. And the last main quest I finished was the getting the helmet of Jurgen Windcaller.

If I also remember correctly, I was Level 20+ when I fought the first dragon (The one at Dragonsreach). Then 40+ When I got Jurgen Windcaller's helmet and seen the first dragon resurrection by Alduin with the Blades member.

So even though I've played a lot of gametime in my game, and collected a lot of the shout words I haven't seem to have unlocked any shouts except the ones given to me by the Graybeards. (Unrelenting Force and Whirlwind Sprint)

Is my game bugged or was I doing things the wrong way (Like kill only Dragons seen being resurrected by Alduin?)

And you have used R to unlock the shouts on your Shouts screen?
So shines a good deed in a weary world.

lol...click on a shout you haven't learned and press "R". Now you're all like OMG! WAT, NO WAI!? :P

Have absorbed dragon souls available.

Go to your shouts menu. (You can check how many souls you have in the bottom right here)

Press R on the shout you want to unlock.

How many dragons have you actually killed? You collect a soul from the ones you kill, then use them to unlock shouts. Go to the magic screen, select shouts, put the cursor on a shout you want to unlock, then hit the R key. If you have available souls, the shout will be unlocked.

Check the bottom right of your "Shout" menu, it shows how many Dragon Souls you've collected so far, if the number is 0, you can't unlock anything. So you must collect dragon souls first, go hunt some dragons.

If there is at least 1 Dragon Souls there, you can use it to unlock 1 word by first selecting the Shout you want to unlock, then press R (default on PC). Remember, 1 Dragon Soul for 1 Word, so you need 3 Dragon Souls (for all 3 Words in a shout) to completely unlocks a Shout. (from all greyed out to all white)
Pretty much done with vanilla, trying out various mods
