Summon Karstaag is a power found in The Elder Scrolls V: Dragonborn.


It is obtained as a reward for the unmarked quest "Summoning Karstaag." The quest requires locating the skull of Karstaag and placing it on his throne in Castle Karstaag Ruins. This summons the beast, and battle will ensue. Once he has been defeated, Summon Karstaag is received.


"Summon Karstaag to fight for you for 120 seconds. You may only use this ability 3 times, and only while outdoors."

This power grants the ability to summon Karstaag, an immensely powerful Frost Giant, to aid in battle. It is unique in that it can only be used three times, after which it is no longer available.

Karstaag will fight alongside the Dragonborn much like the initial battle, however if he is attacked three times he becomes hostile.

    • I'm sorry, but the crown does not work that way. I assume you're talking of the Aetherial Crown? This only works on standing stones.
