"Legend holds that the highest ranking Dragon Priests were granted magical masks - strange artifacts that defy the laws of time, and grant their wearers powerful enchantments."
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - loading screen

A Dragon Priest Mask is obtained after defeating each of the eight unique Dragon Priests that appear in fixed locations throughout Skyrim. Each mask is unique in color and varies in material. Masks are named after their respective masters and have unique effects; they are defined as either Light or Heavy Armor.

All Dragon Priest Masks require the Arcane Blacksmith perk to upgrade them.

Most dragon masks can be found by talking to Arngeir in High Hrothgar, and asking if he has located any words of power. Several words of power are guarded by Dragon Priests.

Trivia

  • In addition to Dragon Priest masks having powerful enchantments, it should also be noted that certain masks have the highest armor rating of any headgear available.
    • For Light Armor, Krosis and Volsung have the highest base armor.
    • For Heavy Armor, Konahrik has the highest base armor.
  • Upon retrieving a mask placed on the shrine, all smithing enhancements will be removed from the mask. This is likely because a new copy of the mask is added to the inventory upon retrieval.
