For the dragon priest, see Zahkriisos.

Zahkriisos (Dovahzul: ZAhKRIiSOS, "Sword Blood" or "Bloody Sword", which is likely a reference to the sword associated with the burial place of its wearer) is a dragon priest mask found in The Elder Scrolls V: Dragonborn.

AcquisitionEdit

This dragon mask can be acquired from the remains of Zahkriisos, one of four named dragon priests on Solstheim. Zahkriisos can be encountered in the Nordic ruin of Bloodskal Barrow during the quest "The Final Descent."

EnchantmentEdit

Zahkriisos' unique enchantment is called "Dukaan's Fury."[note 1] It grants bonuses to shock damage and resistance:

In addition, weapons that bear a shock damage enchantment are also boosted by 25%, this includes weapons enchanted with Chaos Damage. Like most unique enchantments, Zahkriisos cannot be disenchanted.

SmithingEdit

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

UsefulnessEdit

Much like its counterparts, Ahzidal and Dukaan, Zahkriisos is useful for a mage who favors shock spells. While shock resistance may make it less useful than the other two masks, which offer resistance to the more commonly used fire and frost magic, Shock spells are also the most dangerous to a mage, since Shock damage drains magicka on contact. Additionally, Shock spells are nearly impossible to dodge.

AppearancesEdit

FootnotesEdit

  1. According to the game data, it seems the name of the enchantment has been mixed up with Dukaan's Mask, which itself bears Zahkriisos' enchantment called "Zahkriisos' Ire".
