"Thank you, hero. Now I may finally rest. Take Hevnoraak's iron mask. It may be of use to you, and serve as some reward for your feat here."

Hevnoraak (Dragon Language: H.svgE.svgV.svgN.svgO.svgR.svgAa.svgK.svg, "Brutal") is a dragon priest mask found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


This mask can be acquired by defeating the dragon priest Hevnoraak in Valthume during the quest "Evil in Waiting."


Wearing the mask grants an immunity to diseases and poisons.


It can substitute for the Bosmer's immunity to disease and poisons, but it does not protect against biological ailments which disregard resistance to these agents. In particular, the mask's immunity to disease is helpful for players who want to avoid becoming vampires.


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


  • The official strategy guide claims that Hevnoraak fortifies heavy armor by 40 points rather than provide poison and disease immunity.

  •  PC   360   PS3   The mask does not seem to make its wearer immune to poison. It has yet to be confirmed whether or not it even adds resistance. If it does, then the immunity may be conflicting with a poison damage cap. Still, this greatly detracts from the usefulness of this mask.
  •  PC   360   PS3   When equipping a mask and the Archmage's Robes together; both the mask and your entire head may disappear, showing only an empty hood.
    • A short term fix is to drop the Archmage's Robes then pick them up again.
    • Another fix is to store the mask in a container and then equip it directly from the container.
    •  PC (fix)   This can be temporarily fixed on the PC by pressing F5, quicksave, and then F9, quick load.
    •  360 (fix)   Clearing the Xbox 360 cache will also correct this issue.
    •  PS3 (fix)   PS3 users can also temporarily fix this by saving and loading
  •  PC   360   PS3   It is possible to equip this item while wearing a Falmer Helmet, Ancient Shrouded Cowl, the Jagged Crown and circlets.
  •  PC   360   PS3   If any mask is given to any follower, over time it may disappear from their inventory.
    •  PC (fix)   To resolve this matter for PC, use the console command player.additem <itemID> 1, and it will add the mask to the inventory again.
