Anyone have tips for fighting dragon priests? When I fought my first one (besides the one at Skuldafn) his attack spam was so powerful I needed to call Odahviing to defeat him.
Companions to draw fire. Attack when the bastard is distracted. If you have any items that block magic or lessen its damage or anything like that, use them before the priest starts rising from its sarcophagus. Also, try to get some free hits in while the dragon priest is doing its 'I rise from the dead!' impression, it takes a few seconds it seems, and thats enough to get a little hurt in. Most of all, block what you can and strike as much as possible.
If you're an archer, lots of strafing.
If you're a mage, I'm so sorry. But seriously, lightning/fire attacks and strafing.
