Hi guys, I used to hide all my extra stuff's in riverwood on the first room on the left anyways i don't think the room matters.. alright i have finished the quest where you escort esbern to riverwood to talk to delphine. after that quest delphine left and we went to the hide out of the lost blades, When i went back to riverwood all my stuffs in the chest were all gone including the three dragon priest mask and the blessed dagger. Do you have any idea guys where i could get my stuff back???

man i believe that you have to go back to a previous save and move it somewhere else, like maybe to your house in whiterun....i don't believe there is anyway for you to recover your things except for that to my knowledge

why would you hoard stuff like the masks in someone else's house?

This is not a glitch...

You put your items into a respawnable chest; unlike Morrowind, most chests will refresh themselves after a set period of time, deleting any items that were in the chest, and adding similar items to what it had originally...

There are certain chests around Skyrim that won't respawn, but your safest bet is to buy a house and keep your items in it; containers in bought homes do not respawn...

No, they are all gone...

Dragon Priest Masks are unique, so I doubt very much that the priest will respawn with another...

those masks weigh about 2 pounds or so each , there is no reason why you couldnt keep them in your inventory

Ash, if i don't wanna wait to see if the priests respawn, then u can use a console command to get them back.. That is if u are playing the pc version.. Search for skyrim console commands in Google search engine and u can find a webpage with various comands..

1. It is not a glitch.
2. This "problem" have been here since Morrowind.

Crates,Barrels,Chests or other containers that aren't owned by the
player will respawn. When a container respawns it deletes everything
that are inside it. This also includes Unique Items.

that is what i thought since there are so many quests and side quests in this game that it would take much more than 58 hours to do them all

There are 9 dragon priest masks, but you can only collect 8 at the start. When you have them all you can get a 9th.
