I've been playing this on the PS3. I never EVER thought that I'd enjoy an RPG, but decided to give it a shot, and wow. grin A steep learning curve (to put it mildly), but fantastically great fun.

lol

I watched the start of a YouTube playthrough for The Witcher a few weeks back. It looked daunting then. (But I'm braver now.)

I'm on my second play through Skyrim. On my first run I was a Level 57 Warrior specialising in two-handed battleaxe. Towards the end I was also dabbling in archery and one-handed. I made my own dragonplate armour with a final armour rating of 790! (I ranked up on Alchemy, Enchanting and Smithing until I popped.)

(This slope has no brakes!!!) laugh

I need a bit of help, please smile

I have been using the "Z" key for my Dragon Shout but can't remember how I found out that that was the key to use redface

So when I learn a new shout, where will I find the info as to which key to use for that ??

Mad, I think I remember that you have to choose from your screen which shout you want to have active. So it will always be the "z" key. You choose that at the same screen that you choose your magic spell, etc. Of course, with my memory, I could easily be wrong. The good thing is other members have much better memories and will correct me if I'm wrong. lol

That's right. smile You can only ever have one shout active at any time. They also have to be unlocked with dragon souls before you can use them.

Fus-Ro-Dah! grin

Ahhhh .... I've been experimenting since I posted and have discovered that the Z key is actually the only one I need.

And to use any "Shout" I must :

(1) access Magic
(2) select and equip the shout of my choice
(3) use the required number of Dragon Souls

Is that right ??

[And thank you both for responding thumbsup]

You've got it, Mad. thumbsup

The shouts are one of my absolute favourite things about this game.

(Once you've unlocked a shout -- or a part of it -- with a dragon soul, then that's it, you can use the shout as many times as you like after that.)

No, looney, you're right.

One of the tabs on the spell screen (go to your inventory, then it left-alt, to go there) is for shouts. As you come across new words in the world, you can use R to spend dragon souls to learn the new words. Shouts can also be favourited, so that they show up in the Q menu too.

Skyrim is fresh in my mind just now as I'm currently working my way through it for the first time: level 48 Nord fighter/wizard, that sneaks around in awesome dragonbone armour, and can crack locks as soon as look at them wink (And I love the effect when you score a sneaky critical with a bow and arrow and one-hit a bad guy... eat your heart out Robin Hood)

eta: it seems that no matter how long I've been responding to posts on forums like GB, I fail to notice that other people have responded before me (usually on the next page) with exactly the same info!
