Nahkriin is an ebony dragon priest mask obtained by killing the eponymous Nahkriin, who is encountered during the main quest at Skuldafn. It is imbued with an enchantment that grants the wearer a Fortify Magicka effect that gives the wearer an additional fifty points of magicka. The enchantment also decreases the cost of spells in the Destruction and Restoration schools by twenty percent, due to its Fortify Destruction and Fortify Restoration effect. It can be tempered with ebony ingots.
- Nahkriin can only be obtained when in Skuldafn as part of the main quest. If you fail to retrieve it, you will not get a second chance to obtain it.
- Placing Nahkriin on its pedestal at Bromjunaar Sanctuary will remove any bonuses it gained from tempering.
- All dragon priest masks are considered to be circlets in terms of equipment slots, meaning they can be worn simultaneously with some bugged items, as detailed under circlets.
- Nahkriin means "Vengeance" in the dragon tongue.
- Shadowfoot SanctumCC, Tundra Homestead's cellarCC and Myrwatch's galleryCC contain a special holder for this item.
