Skyrim Daedric artifact #7: Skull of Corruption

While I was exploring some mountains to the North, I came across Dawnstar, a small village where people kept complaining about having some sleep disorder. And the weird part wass, they were all suffering the same nightmares. Luckily, there was one guy, a priest of Mara, who knew how to solve the problem.

So, we went together, to a nearby temple, to try and get to the bottom of the situation. Shortly after I entered the ruined temple, I got attacked by Invader Orcs. And then, that priest of Mara revealed himself as a former priest of Vaermina. But hey, I’m not judging, a man can switch gods any time he wants.

Because fighting dozens of enemies would be too easy, I had to collect a book and a potion to pass an annoying barrier. But it was totally worth it!

I entered a dream world and found myself in the middle of a conflict that happened years before. It was quite entertaining to watch a bunch of blood thirsty Orcs tearing apart some poor defenseless priests. But since I couldn’t fight myself, I got bored really fast. So I made my way towards the inner sanctum when I finished the last part of the quest.

The only thing left now, was to let the priest of…whatever god he pleases, to cast a spell and destroy the artifact causing all the trouble. But then, a little voice inside my head told me to kill the priest and claim the artifact for myself. And since I always wanted to be able to scare people even in their dreams, I went for it and killed the priest.

This is what I got out of it:

It’s a pretty cool looking staff and it has the awesome ability to absorb dreams in order to increase its damage.

Only downside is that is consumes both dreams and energy, so you’ll have to use both soul gems and to collect dreams from sleeping people.

    how do you get that staff i have to know because i’m a mage and i got everything leveled up except illusion and that staff would go perfectly with my illusion outfit for my character.

    To bad the quest in dawnstar is bugged in de xbox 360 version, the priest following you in the church to open the hidden door remains stuck in the entrance door. So no skull of corruption for me ;-(

    I still have to play with it to confirm but a whole town killed fast just from spamming it. I will probably not use it just because I don’t like staffs and the game does not need to be easier. With all the meat shield companions :)

    Rapid firing is the strong point of it. No delay.. so even with no dreams thats 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 in half a sec.
