The Draugr Overlord is a variant of Draugr and a powerful type of undead that typically serve as bosses or guardians in various Draugr-filled dungeons.


Overlords are featured in most dungeons at or around level 5, but tend to be replaced by Draugr Deathlords after level 20. However, it can appear as low as Level 1 if the player hasn't yet explored Skyrim and is only playing the Main Quest, located in Bleak Falls Barrow as the boss to obtain the Dragonstone.


Overlords use Ancient Nord Weapons causing medium damage and they may occasionally be enchanted, increasing their effectiveness. They may also use shouts, such as Unrelenting Force or Disarm. Although, like all Draugr that have the Voice, if a shout is interrupted by staggering them, they will repeatedly attempt to use the shout.

Like Deathlords, the archer variants also have a higher health threshold than their melee counterparts, making them a priority target when clearing out multiple enemies. 


The Draugr Overlord may drop any of the following items upon death:
