i have sold the mask because i was not waering it ..
now i have found a mask with takes me into a small "room" and there i can put the mask on stone faces of each priest.
so now i see that i have made a big mistake selling this mask and know i want it back^^
can i only get the mask back from the vendor i sold it?
If the merchant doesn't still have the mask, you can try the console. Save your game beforehand, just in case, then use the tilde (~) to bring up the console and type in player.additem 61CB9 1
That will add the mask to your inventory (if it doesn't work, remove the 1 at the end). Close the console using the tilde again, then you can try to put the mask on the faces. It would be appreciated if you report back here as to whether it works so we can add it to the article. 8) ~ Trippet(Speak/Edits) 16:37, December 11, 2011 (UTC)
I have just recently finished collecting the final masks to put into the stone faces as refered above. i went to the room to realise that i was missing a mask, the krosis mask. I went to the spawn, and i have allready cleared it. i checked every storage place i use, and still cannot find it. I may have accidently sold mine as well. i checked all the vendors i have used, and none have the mask. What do i do now? I am useing a xbox 360 to play the game.

This page has way too many strategy notes. That's not what a Wiki entry is for. Trim it down or remove it entirely--or I will. Winnersusedrugs(talk) 18:22, December 16, 2011 (UTC)
If you want to condense it, please do. Right now it's a wall of text. ~ Trippet(Speak/Edits) 03:06, December 17, 2011 (UTC)
DP's are tough for a reason, as their combat level is predetermined unlike most other monsters. I remember when the developers had to admit to it. It is obvious that this enemy is designed for late game, with late game rewards. The strategy is simple: Farm up levels to remove any challange for our "martial system", which varies from person to person. If your not willing to "Farm up", your better off reading "The Art of War", by Sun Tsu. I killed this perticular DP at level 22, no mods/hacks. How? Patience, and analysis. The kind you need when you have to deal with wild animals in the forrests OF REAL LIFE. ~ email@example.com 02:03, March 08, 2012 (UTC)
At lvl 15 with good onehand skill and some extra dmg enchants i managed to take him down, and i just went head on and attacked as much i could, with the use of loads of healing potions, and that worked fine for me.. I can advice ppl to do the same. btw i was mostly warrior skilled and just started working on my thiefs skills and as i said, worked fine for me to take him down. and btw I used Light armor is that is any help.184.108.40.206 15:03, December 30, 2011 (UTC)
Trimmed it down, fix anything if needed. :) Elloabbey(talk) 03:12, January 5, 2012 (UTC)
I would not necessarily consider it an Easter Egg but for the fact we're considering Temba Wide-Arm so. The dragon priest seems to be a reference to the ST:TNG character. Can we start some discussion as to whether or not this should be included to the wiki page? Flagcaptured(talk) 00:58, January 13, 2012 (UTC)
i thought that Krosis was a easter egg for the person called krosis in star wars mostsly because he also used a staff which shoot fireballsWolfbeast150(talk) 08:18, April 11, 2012 (UTC)
Krosis is false stated as fire dragon priest here, a look in the CK reveales that he uses the ActorBase EncDragonPriestFrost which got the related spellpackage.. his high usage of the Staff of Fireballs might lead people into believing he's fire based.
Like all Dragon Priests, he can also turn your summoned creatures against you and can summon a Frost Atronach. He also casts Frost Cloak upon himself, which will swiftly drain your stamina if you are attempting to kill him using melee weapons. He is immensely powerful, so lower level players should be cautious.
It is possible, using the two stones with about a stones space between them directly south east of the word wall, look just passed the pillar to the two stones beyond it, to glitch Krosis in one of two ways. Both ways required clever use of the edge of the stone. The first is allowing you to shoot him whilst putting the edge of the stone between you and his left side so that his fireballs hit the stone. This tricks Krosis into thinking he is hitting you when he is not. The other way is the same idea with the stone, but Krosis will glitch so that he doesn't think he can see you and will stand still without attacking, but you can still shoot him. A higher archery is suggested, just bring a lot of arrows and be careful that you aren't shooting the stone.
A third method, using the two stones mentioned above, is to jump ontop of the stone further SE using the rock and post nearby. Once on top, crouch into a sneaking position and move as far back from the edge of the rock between yourself and Krosis. When Krosis casts fireballs, they will strike the edge of the rock and you should received no damage. From this position, you will be looking down on Krosis and should be able to unload a volley of arrows into him until dead.
Provided that you have high Sneak, One-Handed, a good Dagger, the perk Assassin's Blade, and possibly Shrouded Gauntlets, you can sneak behind Krosis and attack with 15x or 30x Damage Sneak Attacks. Krosis should go down in about 3-7 hits. This is much riskier as even with a high sneak, as you could still be detected.
You can bring Shadowmere (as they are very strong and can take many hits) and J'zargo (he favors the Shock Spell, so he should be able to deplete Krosis's magicka quickly) to distract Krosis while you attack.
Another strategy to defeat him is to flee to the nearby Giant camp, and lead him towards the mammoths and giants so they attack him. Fire projectiles from a distance and he will fall in no time (be careful on attacking the Giants and Mammoths as they might all turn around and attack you).
Having a good melee character and a high armor rating, you can attack Krosis with a series of power attacks and the using Unrelenting Force to make him stagger (using an enchanted weapon that drains magicka will make this much easier as Krosis does not have melee attacks). If you can, shield bashing to stagger him is just as effective. Be prepared and save before fighting.
You can use Unrelenting Force and push Krosis off the cliff. You can then peek over the ledge and fire projectiles at him (having a high Archery will make this much faster). You can also use anything to keep Krosis' Magicka drained and continually attack him with anything Electric. He is particularly weak to shock damage. One possible way is to put a healing spell on one hand and a shock spell in the other. This is effective for lower level characters.
You can hide behind the Word Wall and attack Krosis from there. Be sure to take cover when Krosis uses spells to avoid taking damage (again, having a high Archery will make this much faster).
Having the Atronach Stone on may simply take the pounding from Krosis, with a healing spell in one hand regenerating the same, if not more, than the health lost (assuming your Restoration skill is high enough). You can then use the other hand to attack Krosis. Being a Breton will extremely be beneficial.
Strategic use of Wards in one hand and a weapon/spell in another will make killing Krosis easier.
You can use the Call Dragon shout to help you defeat Krosis. Not recommended for players who want to defeat Krosis earlier as the Call Dragon shout is unlocked during Act III.
Using Mehrunes' Razor and savagely attacking the Dragon Priest using light attacks will result in an instant kill. Recommended to save and be extremely prepared.
For Destruction mages, the Impact perk makes this fight incredibly easy (as it does most other fights). Dual casting Lightning Bolt will kill Krosis in about 30 shots without allowing him the opportunity to muster any offense in return.
A good strategy is to hide behind a rock or anything that blocks the fireballs thrown by Krosis, and shoot arrows towards him. If the player doesn't have a bow or arrows, he or she should use spells that can be used afar. As the object blocks the Fireballs, the player can, if accurate, shoot arrows at Krosis. It can be tricky to get to the place where Krosis would try to attack the player but instead hitting the ground or a boulder, but significantly makes the fight easier. Using the Call of Valor shout, the Dragon Priest focuses on him until he dies, efficiently making it possible for you to attack him without the danger of being hit.
You can use Elemental Fury with a decent weapon, such as a Daedric Mace with the boosted attack speed and the heavy damage of the mace you can kill him pretty quick.
A good combo to use on Krosis is Dawnbreaker and Spellbreaker as Dawnbreaker deals extra damage to the undead and Spellbreaker acts like a Ward by blocking spells.
If you are low level, you can quickly back Krosis into the word wall. He will not attack with fireballs at this close range, and he can't flee. Be prepared with healing potions. You will defeat him and get the shout at the same time.
You can also attack Krosis head-on, if you are a high-level (not recommended especially in low-levels). If you do, there is a chance he will glitch and not attack you.
Another strategy would be to attack him a bit then run up the mountain a little ways and hide behind rocks. He will not follow you but instead shoot at you. The best part is that it will consider you to have no enemies nearby, thus you can use the wait function and restore everything. Krosis will remain at the same amount of health.
Another strategy, is if you have obtained the Beast Form ability, you can become a Werewolf and do light claw attacks as Krosis rises. He will flinch with a power hit, allowing a Cat and Mouse strategy to be used as long as you can escape his fire ball attacks quickly.
Another strategy, if you have completed the College Of Winterhold quests you should have the Staff Of Magnus, use it until his health is fully drained.
And finally, as with all bosses, you can save prior to combat, and use Wabbajack over and over, going for an insta-kill.
Another way is possible by using the Slow Time voice, shout when it has recharged and attack melee and magic when Krosis is in slow motion.
You can also run at him and mash the left and right mouse buttons with dual wielding, and like every other enemy in the game he will fall after about 30–60 seconds if you are above level 30.
You can use some immortal followers (like Barbas) to tank him.
One more strategy is to get close to Krosis so you can "herd" him of the cliff behind the word wall. If you do it right he should land in between the two closest trees to the cliff. Stand on the rock that juts out toward the trees so that you can just see him. When he shoots his fireballs they will hit the rock and when he tries to move to the side he will hit the tree, then move the other way and hit the other tree. Continuously shoot him with arrows (It should take about 150 if you suck at archery and are like level 30) and shouts until he dies, then jump down and get his mask and staff. This is recommended for players levels 20-30. Also, knocking him off the cliff is a good way to escape if necessary.
The (complete) Drain Vitality shout can also be very useful, as it will reduce the amount of Magicka Krosis has. It may even deplete his magicka fully for a while. If you get close enough for him not to use his Staff of Fireballs, he will have no other means of attack or defense, leaving you open to attack him unharmed. Note: this strategy requires the Dawnguard plug-in.
Massive terrible glitch or bad memory, either way bad
I was running around Skyrim collecting dragon priest masks for the shrine at Labyrinthian, then, once I came to Shearpoint to collect Krosis, I found the sarcophagus closed, a dragon too low a level for my own, and when I approached the word wall, I heard the background shouting but no words of power were glowing. Also, upon killing the dragon, I didn't absorb its soul. When I went to collect Krosis, I noticed that the marker said "Cleared" and by the path leading up to the shrine there was a Staff of Fireballs. I have checked my inventory multiple times and all the storage containers that I own. This is a very old character though (the first one I ever had) and I could have done something stupid with it. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
