This has been so helpful! I've collected all but two of the masks. And ironically, they were in the places that I have never ventured out to. So this going to help me a whole lot more now. :)))

@Brazucass Actually ive already done this ...and i remember encountering the wooden mask at a dome shrine,after i came out of the Dungeon with that staff u need to seal of the orb at the final stage of the winter-hold Mages guild quest. I admit i put on the wooden mask and discovered the room by accident ..but it was a memorable experience nevertheless.

I've already been through the game once and I missed a few of these so I did what any one would do on the PC...console commands. I never use them until I finish a game. Once I'm done, like to see things I missed. :) V^^^^V

@boiardee14 That... Makes no sense at all... Okay, then why are people nerds for liking Skyrim...?

I only have the 20% lockpicking one. ganna try to get the rest as soon as exams end xD out of subject, can you revive the dead companions and is there a way to make them not die? like if you let them go home do the refill their life meter? I mean their heath regenrate but after a few times when their heath gets low instead of kneeling down they just die? one of them died the first time he lost his heath bar (at the temple quest west of soliethood or something) thanks :)

@Brazucass Since all of the priests are located in areas with word walls, you will eventually be sent to them either by asking the Greybeards about getting words of power or through The Courier. The latter gives you a letter "from a friend" telling you about the location of a word wall after you use shouts in a public place--got my first one after I shouted a bit at a dragon that showed up at Dawnstar. The vast majority of the dragons I ran into showed up right after I fast traveled, it seemed... Anyway, both the courier and the Greybeards will only give you one location at once, but you can do the two quests concurrently. They will get you most of the word walls and all of the masks but Nahkriin and the one in Labyrinthian if you are patient. Be warned though that the Greybeards stop telling you about wall locations once you ask them about Dragonrend. (The name itself isn't a spoiler, but it will be if you google it). I'm glad to see the video updated with more specific information on the burial locations. Thanks for responding to my criticism, Kurtis! :)

If I hear one more lame "and then I took an arrow to the knee" joke I am going to put an arrow through their balls. Opps, guess I gotta go shoot myself in the balls.

@bog101: I've never had a game hold my attention so strong and for so long. It's really an amazing game.

@Bog101 you have not lived until you have played it. You seriously will not need any other game for awhile

I've got 4 masks... thanks to my OCD I've visited every place on the map while walking near it... So I sumbled uppon those guys and killed them easy (elven archer does the job best). Masks are pretty awesome.

It is a shame that there isnt a quest line to lead to the masks

I used to laugh at these "but then I took an arrow to the knee jokes,"...but then I took an arrow to the face, then to the arms, then to the feet, then to the legs, then to the stomach, then to the ribs, then to the shoulders, then to the neck, then to the elbows, then FINALLY to the knee. :(

@karloss01 I hit the glitchy dragons with shock spells, seems to snap them out of the crazyness.

These guys are a pain for me as the update has disabled all resistances buffs on my game so their spells go straight through me. Not to mention that I can’t unlock most of my shouts because the dragons a flying backwards and glitching about. D:

Sure it is pretty easy when you kill them at level 35. Try lowers levels then we talk.

I was planning on getting Skyrim, but i was wondering if you could master all the classes instead of just being a Jack-of-all-trades, so that I can get all the masks, especially the one where I need to join the College of Mages.

Never mind my last question. I should have watched the entire video before asking the question.

Who cares about Dragon Priest Masks? I just sell those things. With my apathy put aside, do you have to have all of the masks on you in order to get the Wooden Mask?
