Notice! This quest is connected with Dragon Priests Masks, so it's best to complete it while obtaining one of the eight masks needed for the collection.

Open the world map and head to the High Gate Ruins in the northern part of Skyrim (screen above). If you haven't yet discovered that location, it would be best to start at Dawnstar and head west. After getting there, enter the ruins and find Anska in one of the first rooms. Speak to her to learn that she has found the crypt of the Dragon Priest Vokun and she's looking for a certain scroll. It's of course worth to offer your help, especially that Anska will join your party as an independent ally (you don't have to give up on your current companion).

Begin the exploration, being ready for a long and tiresome journey. On your way you will regularly come across Draugrs and unfortunately in most cases it will be their strongest kinds, i.e. Draugr Wights, Draugr Scourges and Draugr Deathlords. Adapt your strategy depending on whether you're fighting a warrior, archer, or mage. After reaching the bigger room go up the stairs and through the passage in the north-east corner (screen above).

Keep fighting your way through the Draugrs until you reach a bigger room in which you will have to solve a rather easy puzzle. Examine the southern the southern part of the ceiling and you should note the four symbols from the screen above. They suggest the proper order in which you have to pull the levers in this room. Start off by pulling the one with the hawk symbol, afterwards the fish, wolf and in the end the snake lever. The location of the levers have been marked in the map above (two first levers are on the upper level and two last on the lower).

Solve the puzzle and use the newly unlocked stairs in the middle of the room to reach the door leading to High Gate Ruins Catacombs. Here you will have to fight more Draugrs and you should especially look out for the "sleeping" ones, no letting them attack you from behind. Go down the next set of stairs onto the lower level and continue exploring the catacombs. Be careful while going through the southern corridor (screen above), as the area is full of traps activated by standing on a pressure plate.
