Morokei (Dragon Language: M.svgO.svgR.svgO.svgK.svgEi.svg, "Glorious") is a dragon priest mask found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


The mask is obtained after defeating the dragon priest Morokei. He can be found in the end of the quest "The Staff of Magnus" inside Labyrinthian.


Wearing this piece of armor grants the following bonuses:


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


This mask can be very helpful for mages, since Magicka is required for spellcasting, and can usually take a while to regenerate up to maximum potential. Spellcasters will be able to cast more spells more frequently, especially concentration ones, without needing to worry about Magicka, and will be able to recover lost Magicka faster, which can especially be useful if the Atronach Stone ability is active. The mask's enchantment stacks with the Altmer ability Highborn. Altmer players can also use the Apprentice Stone to fortify magicka regeneration even more.


  • Because the mask is considered armor, it negates the Alteration perk, Mage Armor.
  • Morokei's armor rating is significantly lower than that of other Dragon Priest masks. The reason for this is unknown. Due to its association with the College of Winterhold questline, it may have been intended to give a slight armor rating while not negating Mage Armor, similarly to the Diadem of the Savant, but may have been given the wrong keywords for this.
  • Morokei is intended to have a unique enchantment that gives Magicka regeneration as well as shout cooldown reduction, but this enchantment was not actually assigned to it.
  • Had it been given this enchantment, it would be the only item besides the Amulet of Talos to reduce shout cooldown time.

  •  PC   360   PS3   Morokei's enchantment is improperly assigned. It is supposed to also reduce the cooldown of dragon shouts by 20%.[1]
  •  PC   360   PS3   When equipping a mask and the Archmage's Robes together; both the mask and the Dragonborn's 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 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 a mask is given to Malborn in the "Diplomatic Immunity" quest, it may disappear. This has been known to happen with Krosis also.
    •  PC (fix)   To resolve this, use the console command player.additem
    • 00061C8B 1, and it will add the mask to the inventory again.
  •  PC   360   PS3   If any mask is given to any follower, over time it may disappear from their inventory.
