Dragon Priest Staff
Nahkriin can be encountered within the Nordic ruin of Skuldafn during the main quest The World-Eater's Eyrie. He must be defeated in order to obtain the Dragon Priest Staff which is used to open a portal to Sovngarde. However, it is possible to access Sovngarde without fighting Nahkriin, by simply sprinting past him before he closes the portal.
Upon his defeat, Nahkriin drops the Nahkriin Mask - one of the eight mysterious Dragon Masks located throughout Skyrim. This is the only opportunity to obtain this mask as it is impossible to return to Skuldafn.
- He is one of two Dragon Priests that does not exit from a sarcophagus, the other being Morokei.
- While in combat, Nahkriin will speak in Dragon Tongue. Aside from Morokei, he is the only Dragon Priest that ever speaks to the Dragonborn.
- "Hin laas los dii." - "Your life is mine."
- "Fent ni filok." - "(You) shall not escape."
- "Sosaal fah hin vothaarn." - "Bleed for your disobedience."
- "Zu'u uth nall thurri dein daar miiraak." - "I (was) ordered (by my) overlord to guard this portal."
- - Miraak is the first dragonborn in the Dragonborn DLC. It is more than likely this is the inspiration of the name.
