Krosis is one of eight high-ranked dragon priests of Skyrim that once served the ancient dragons. His sarcophagus is located in front of the Shearpoint word wall, which contains all three words of Throw Voice. He wields powerful ice magic, and carries with him a Staff of Fireballs and his eponymous mask.


  • Krosis means "sorrow", "sorry" or "my apologies" in the dragon language.
  • Although Krosis is an ice-based Dragon Priest, he relies heavily on the Staff of Fireballs he carries with him to deal damage, occasionally casting a Frost Cloak, though no other ice magic.
  • Krosis is highly mobile once he emerges from his sarcophagus: he can easily dodge arrows/bolts and projectile magic (such as Firebolt) as he strafes at high speed around the area of the mountain top. As such, area-of-effect magic (like Chain Lightning or Fireball and Shouts) may be the best way to deal with him. If you are a melee fighter, be aware that he may end up going down the steep cliffside (on the left as you enter the area) and if you lose your footing while fighting him, you may end up falling to your death.


  • Krosis might not be hostile, even if attacked.
