Over the weekend, details on Skyrim‘s upcoming “Dragonborn” DLC surfaced online, providing quite a few juicy details on the new items, areas, abilities, and the story of the latest expansion.
The new information comes from The Outhousers, who compiled tidbits of leaked information from Reddit and other sources. Perhaps the most interesting piece of information uncovered is that, for one tester, Skyrim‘s Dragonborn DLC lasted beyond 30 hours.
Granted, the tester did say that it’s likely to rush through it in around 10 hours. Regardless, that would be impressive if true.
The Dragonborn DLC can reportedly be started at any point in the game and takes place in Solstheim, which is said to be about the size of the Reach. Solstheim has its own map and is apparently only reachable by a specific boat.
Based on the information from beta testers, it sounds like Dragonborn is going to have a very significant amount of content. There’s loads of new weapons, armor, enemies, spells, and shouts to uncover as you venture through Solstheim.
For all of the details, you can head over to this link. Otherwise, see below for a list of the new shouts and spells available in Skyrim‘s Dragonborn DLC. Beware of spoilers.
Cyclone – creates a small tornado (that is pretty funny to use)
Bend Will – force a dragon to fight with you.
Dragon Riding – player hasn’t gotten to this one yet.
Dragon Aspect – creates the dragon armor from trailer and gives stronger shouts, stronger melee attacks and summon Ancient Dragonborn to fight with you when you get low on health. Can only be used once per day.
Battle Fury – like Elemental Fury but for NPCs
Ash Shell – lets you encase enemies in ash (paralyze) or slow them down with damage.
Waterwalking – back in enchantment and potion form
A new Ring that allows resurrected creatures to explode into frost and fire damage.
New Active Effect – from H. Mora’s realm you can find a book that lets you choose from three active effects: Mora’s Mercy, Mora’s Wrath and Mora’s Agony. You can return to the realm and choose a new effect if you want to replace it (sounds like a similar thing to the effect Parthurnax gives you, or the one you receive for the Nightengale quest) There are five books total, with three options per book, you can get five effects in all supposedly.
New Summoning power – player doesn’t want to spoil what it is, but says it’s cool.
Summon Spells – 3 mentioned:Ash Guardian, Ash Spawn, Seeker
