There are 20 shouts in Skyrim, each with 3 levels of power. However, some of these shouts require dragon souls to unlock, and others are simply given to the player as gifts / quest rewards. (e.g., Clear Skies, Call Dragon, Call of Valor et al)
My question is:
What is the minimum number of dragons you must kill to be able to possess all 20 shouts at their full power?
From what I see here it looks like 18 are learned without requiring dragon souls, though I’m extrapolating a bit since I haven’t reached the end of the main quest yet, myself.
Animal Allegiance 3 Souls Aura Whisper 3 Souls Become Ethereal 3 Souls Call Dragon 0 Souls* *I'm making the assumption that this works a bit like Unrelenting Force Call of Valor 0 Souls Clear Skies 0 Souls Disarm 3 Souls Dismay 3 Souls Dragonrend 0 Souls Elemental Fury 3 Souls Fire Breath 2 Souls Frost Breath 3 Souls Ice Form 3 Souls Kyne's Peace 3 Souls Marked for Death 3 Souls Slow Time 3 Souls Storm Call 3 Souls Throw Voice 3 Souls Unrelenting Force 1 Soul Whirlwind Sprint 2 Souls
So…3+3+3+0+0+0+3+3+0+3+2+3+3+3+3+3+3+3+1+2 = 44
