The Helm of Yngol is a unique heavy armor helmet found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. It once belonged to Ysgramor's son, Yngol, who was killed at sea along with his crew by Sea-Ghosts, as described in Yngol and the Sea Ghosts.


The helm can be found on Yngol's skeletal remains within the throne room of Yngol Barrow. The helm is guarded by Yngol's Shade.


Wearing this helmet grants the following bonuses:


It can be upgraded with a Steel Ingot at a workbench, and also benefits from the Advanced Armors perk, which doubles the improvement.



This section contains bugs related to Helm of Yngol. Before adding a bug to this list, consider the following:

  1. Please reload an old save to confirm if the bug is still happening.
  2. If the bug is still occurring, please post the bug report with the appropriate system template  360  ,  PS3  ,  PC  .
  3. If a fix to the bug is known, please provide it, but avoid use of first-person-anecdotes: such discussions belong on the appropriate forum board and not the article.
  • When the Dragonborn goes to pick it up, the helm may be invisible, and only the skull of Yngol can be seen. Picking it up makes the rest of the skeleton appear.
  •  PC   360   PS3  If the quest to fetch the Helm of Winterhold for the Jarl of Winterhold has been accepted prior to entering Yngol Barrow, the bug replaces Yngol's Shade with a Draugr Deathlord or Dragon Priest and completely removes the skeleton and the helmet with it. It also causes the door in Yngol's final chamber to remain shut.
    •  PC(Fix)   To fix this bug on the PC, before entering Yngol Barrow, type setstage Favor158 20 into the console, which removes the Helm of Winterhold quest, fast travel to, enter, and complete Yngol Barrow, which should be unbugged and the Helm of Yngol should appear, then returning to Jarl Korir to get Helm of Winterhold quest again.
    •  PC(Fix)   Alternatively, the quest for the Helm of Winterhold can be finished, then the command resetinterior YngolBarrow01 can be typed into the console to reset the latter half of the dungeon. The skeleton should be found with the Helm of Yngol in its rightful place with the shade protecting it.
    • Solution: When unlocking the room with the claw do not enter. Have a follower retrieve everything from the chest, including the Helm of Winterhold, via the command brought up from talking to the follower. Once they grab everything use the command to talk from a distance and they will return. Retrieve the Helm and return to Winterhold. Finish the quest then go back to Yngol and the shade along with the Helm of Yngol should be returned.
  •  360   Long hair will sometimes clip through the back of the helmet.
  • When returning to Jarl Korir with the Helm of Winterhold, he will go through all of the dialogue for the quest but not take the helm or give a reward. Also, if the dialogue to become a Thane is gone through during the same conversation, the status item of the position will not be received.
