Volsung is a corundum dragon priest mask obtained by killing the eponymous Volsung at the end of the Nordic ruin, Volskygge. The artifact's enchantment allows you to breathe underwater, carry an additional twenty units of weight, and increases your bartering abilities by twenty points. It can be tempered with corundum ingots.
