Masque of Clavicus Vile

The Masque of Clavicus Vile is a Daedric artifact created by Clavicus Vile that will gain you the respect and admiration of everyone who meets you. It is given as a reward for returning the Rueful Axe to Clavicus Vile during the quest A Daedra's Best Friend.

Related Quests[edit]


  • The Rueful Axe does not count as a Daedric artifact, while the Masque of Clavicus Vile does. If you wish to obtain the Oblivion Walker Achievement you should exchange the Axe for the Masque of Clavicus Vile during the quest A Daedra's Best Friend.
  • The Masque provides the biggest benefit at vendors of any headgear in the game, unless your Speech is 95 or higher. This is because both the Barter and Persuasion boosts make prices more favorable. At or above 95 speech, the Blackguard's HoodDB is better because Speech bonuses to prices cap at 100.


  • On Xbox Equipping the Guild Master's Hood will let you equip the Masque of Clavicus Vile, allowing you to benefit from both Fortify Barter enchantments at once. ?
  • This item cannot be tempered. In addition, it has the ebony material keyword, meaning you'll get a bonus with the Matching Set perk for wearing it with other ebony pieces, but not daedric.
  • Equipping this helmet along with the Ebony Mail can cause your head to disappear. ?
