Dragon Shout locations
You have the ability to absorb the Dragon's soul to unlock the Shout abilities.
To learn different types of Dragon Shouts, you must find the ancient tablet wall
that teaches you the Dragon Words.
Each Shout has three words that can be learned by going around Skyrim and
Half of the Dragon Shouts can be learned through the main quests, while others
require you to search the world of Skyrim to find the ancient tablet walls.
If you find all three words in a Dragon Shout, you increase its effectiveness

powerful Shout by holding RB. Search the listed locations and/or complete the
