Visage of Mzund is a unique Dwarven helmet that ties with Konahrik for the highest base armor rating for any helm available.


Fahlbtharz – Found on a table, next to the chest in the final chamber of the Dwemer Ruin.


The helmet bears a unique enchantment which grants the following bonuses:

The Breath of Nchuak is a lesser power that is added when the mask is worn. When activated, a scorching blast of steam is released from the helmet which deals 15 points of damage per second, at the cost of stamina upkeep.


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