Skyrim Dragon Priests and Masks Guide

By   /   4 years ago

Dragon Priests are the pesky little bastards you encounter mostly in dragon lairs, are also some of the most difficult creatures to face in Skyrim. These dragon priests are mostly defending Word Wall, where you learn different words part of Dragon Shouts.

When you defeat them, they drop masks that have different magical properties. When you put on these masks, they will induce these magical properties in you.

Collecting these masks, is also important considering it’s part of a quest, and completing that quest will reward you with much cooler wooden mask. To get Wooden Mask, you need to collect 8 Dragon Priest Masks, which will drop off from 8 Dragon Priest.

So, you have no choice but to kill 8 Dragon Priests. Once you have collected these dragon priest masks, take them to the dragon shrine near the Labyrinthian. When you will reach the shrine, you will find it broken.

Take the Wooden Mask from the skeleton near the shrine and you will travel to a time when it worked. Now, place these masks on its pedestal and the dragon head will reveal a ninth mask ‘Konahrik’ that has defensive and Conjuration abilities.

    the wooden mask needs to be worn while in the labyrinthian. Once worn the mask transforms the room into a alter in which you can place each of the 8 masks.

    lies…. the wooden mask is one of the first masks i got. i’m sure i got it from the labyrinthian but you certainly do not need 8 other masks to get it

    Even though the official guide says +40 to heavy armor w/ Hevnoraak I just obtained it and it gives poison and disease immunity instead
