Resurrecting the Dragon Priest Masks

Long ago, there was a group of powerful Nordic mages that worshiped and served the dragons.

These Dragon Priests were highly skilled, and because of their dedicated service to the dragons of long ago, they were given special masks that signified their powerful positions as the dragons’ personal retainers.

The Dragon Priests died out long ago, but they have been resurrected within their tombs just as the dragons have, and they are all in crypts scattered across Skyrim.

There are eight Dragon Priests with eight named masks, one wooden mask at Labyrinthian, and one special mask you receive after collecting all nine and traveling to the Bromjunaar Sanctuary.

When you collect the eight named masks and put on the wooden mask at the altar at Labyrinthian, place all eight masks on their respective dragon statues and the last mask will be revealed.

After the revelation, you can take whichever masks you want off of the statues and continue to use them if you wish.

Here is an alphabetical list of each dragon mask with the name of the location where the corresponding Dragon Priest is found.
