Nahkriin is a dragon priest mask found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Nahkriin translates to "vengeance" in dragon language.


This mask can be acquired from the dragon priest Nahkriin in Skuldafn during the quest "The World-Eater's Eyrie", just before entering Sovngarde. This is the only opportunity to obtain this mask as it is impossible to return to Skuldafn.


Wearing this mask grants the following bonuses:


It can be upgraded with an ebony ingot at a workbench, and also benefits from the Daedric Smithing perk, which doubles the improvement.



This section contains bugs related to Nahkriin (Mask). Before adding a bug to this list, consider the following:

  1. Confirm all bugs with other editors on the talk page before adding them below.
  2. Always try reloading an old save first, before asking for assistance.
  3. Do not discuss possible bug fixes or origins. Leave those and all other first-person-anecdotes on the talk page, not the article.
  4. Always add  360  ,  PS3  , or  PC   to clarify which system the bug appears on.
  •  PC   360   PS3  When equipping a mask and the Archmage's Robes together; both the mask and your entire head may disappear, showing only an empty hood.
    • A short term fix is to drop the Archmage's Robes then pick them up again.
    • Another fix is to store the mask in a container and then equip it directly from the container.
    •  PC(fix)   This can be temporarily fixed by pressing F5, quicksave, and then F9, quick load.
    •  360(fix)   Clearing the Xbox 360 cache will also correct this issue.
    •  PS3(fix)   PS3 users can also temporarily fix this by saving and loading
  •  PC   360   PS3  It is possible to equip this item while wearing a Falmer Helmet, Ancient Shrouded Cowl, the Jagged Crown and circlets.
  •  PC   360   PS3  If any mask is given to any follower, over time it may disappear from their inventory.
    •  PC(fix)   To resolve this, use the console command player.additem <itemID> 1, and it will add the mask to the inventory again.
