  •  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.

  •  PC   360   PS3   It is possible to equip this item while wearing a Falmer Helmet, Ancient Shrouded Cowl, the Jagged Crown and circlets.
