Pulled From The Ground In A Strange Harvest Skyshard

Guide:
Head to the southeastern part of the island, just east from the tower Enclave of the Hourglass and Strid River Wayshrine.

If you follow the southern Gold Coast shoreline, just before the area of interest called Varen’s Wall Gatehouse, you’ll spot a farm house. There are some agricultural fields, close to the house, edged with wooden fences. The one closest to the house has a field with many pumpkins. This is where you’ll find the last of outdoor skyshard. It has a rather unique name, and you’ll see why it named the way it is once you find its location.

Hidden Away Where Only Spelunkers Will Find It Skyshard

Guide:
Found inside the delve located just north from the Gold Coast main city – Anvil.

Good thing there is a delve map, since finding its entrance would be a major problem without it. The reason is the very small delve entrance door. If you come from the south, you should spot it close to several rock boulders. Go inside to enter the Hrota Cave solo dungeon.

At the start of the dungeon you find Mel Adrys who gives the quest “The Vampire’s Prey”. It can be done easily for extra experience.

For the shard, head to the northeastern part of Hrota Cave. To reach some of the dungeon’s rooms, you’ll need to go through the hidden passages. They are just like the doors, you have to open then in order to reveal hidden paths. If you are being chased by enemies, be sure to deal with them first, or you might be unable to use the passage. The room, in northeastern part of the delve, is small like the other ones, you won’t have problem spotting its main prize.

A Treasure Of The Gold Coast, Kept In A Stolen Vault Skyshard

Guide:
I consider this one to be an underground skyshard, as it is found inside a public dungeon – Garlas Agea, northeast from the main city – Anvil, south from Gold Coast Wayshrine.

If you come to the dungeon’s area, you’ll spot a vast number of stone arches. Follow the path underneath them, until you reach the door that leads into the delve.

The Garlas Agea shard is found in its southeastern part. It is not hidden by any means. You’ll spot it as soon as you enter this room. It is located just next to the food cart, close to some of the dungeon inhabitants.

ESO Gold Coast Skyshards Location Map


1.

On a lonely isle staring out across the Abecean.

Guide:
Shard is located in the southwestern part of Gold Coast, on the only island in that area.

Once you reach the main city called Anvil, go southwest from it. If you open up the map, you can spot the small island just west from the city. The skyshard is positioned just between a boulder and a large tree and you can’t see its glow until you get real close.

2.

Proudly displayed near the Caretaker’s home.

Guide:
It is positioned in the northwestern part of the Gold Coast, between Knightsgrave ruins (to the west) and Colovian Revolt Forger Yard (to the east).

This one is one of those that don’t hide their whereabouts at all. Once you start ascending through this area you’ll spot it from a distance. It is on a boulder, dominating the area, like a lighthouse.

In the nearby Forge Yard you can craft Pelinal’s Aptitude Set. It offers around 1485 maximum health for two set pieces, 180 stamina recovery for three, 180 magicka recovery for four set pieces. If you equip five pieces of the set you gain buff: “your weapon and spell damage both become the highest of the two values”.

3.

Nestled in the arm of the eastern watchtower.

Guide:
In southeastern part of the main island, just south from Kvatch city and its wayshrine.

If you start ascending toward Kvatch you’ll spot some ruins to your right. There is a half ruined tower with a couple of walls hanging on. You might not be able to see the shard’s glow from a distance, but if you go down into the ruins you’ll surely see it. There are some Minotaurs in the area, but if you come in sneaking, you can avoid them until you pick up the skyshard.

East from it there is an area of interest – Varen’s Wall Gatehouse, while going north you can find Kvatch’s Arena, one of the most fun group boss fights.

Hidden away where only spelunkers will find it.

Guide:
Found inside the delve located just north from the Gold Coast main city – Anvil.

A treasure of the Gold Coast, kept in a stolen vault.

Guide:
I consider this one to be an underground skyshard, as it is found inside a public dungeon – Garlas Agea, northeast from the main city – Anvil, south from Gold Coast Wayshrine.

If you come to the dungeon’s area, you’ll spot a vast number of stone arches. Follow the path underneath them, until you reach the door that leads into the delve.

The Garlas Agea shard is found in its southeastern part. It is not hidden by any means. You’ll spot it as soon as you enter this room. It is located just next to the food cart, close to some of the dungeon inhabitants.

Beneath The Ruined Aqueduct Skyshard

Guide:
Shard is located in southwestern corner of Wrothgar, just east from Friendship Gate, south from Siege Road Wayshrine.

Just like the name says “Beneath the ruined aqueduct” head to the ruins in this area. There are rather tall stone structures – Aqueducts. The shard is conveniently hidden behind one of the Aqueduct pillars. Be ready for a bit of climbing. Aqueducts and shards go well together it seems, since are more than one in this area.

West Of The Cliff Jumper’s Falls Skyshard

Guide:
In southwestern part of Wrothgar, somewhere between Frostbreak Ridge Wayshrine (to the east) and Great Bay Wayshrine (to the northwest) is where you need to go.

Head toward the largest lake in this area. There is a small island on its southern part. Just south from here you’ll spot a small waterfall. The skyshard is found next to this waterfall, on a platform, above the lake. From a nearby road, head to the platform, and collect the prize.

Smuggled Away In Shipwreck Cove Skyshard

Guide:
Go to the westernmost Wrothgar coastline, east from Old Orsinium public dungeon, northwest from Great Bay Wayshrine.

Although the name suggest it is hidden in some kind of a shipwreck cove, don’t search for signs of any ships. If you follow the coastline you can spot it from the distance. There is a small waterfall just next to it, but this is not that big of a landmark, as there are many of them in the area. If you head toward the coast, downhill from the nearby public dungeon, you’ll stumble upon it without a problem.

On A Stonecutter’s Scaffold Skyshard

Guide:
Location of the shard is in the southern part of Wrothgar, west from Merchants Gate and its Wayshrine, in the area marked as Graystone Quarry.

If you have reached this part of the map from Merchant’s Gate, this would be the closest outdoor Skyshard. It was the first I found in this zone.

Find the Graystone Quarry and head toward its southern part (it is a rather large excavation operation). The skyshard is hidden on a wooden platform. This is the tallest, reachable area. To collect it, jump between the wooden bars on top of the platform. Although it may not look like it, you can squeeze through.

A Seaside View From The Cliffs Of Morkul Skyshard

Guide:
Found in the most northern, non snow covered, part of the main map, just west from Morkul Stronghold and snowy Icy Shore Wayshrine.

Although it may be considered as being hidden, its name reveals everything you need to know about its location. There is a nearby city called Morkul Stronghold. The seaside view suggests it at least has some view of the nearby sea.
It all comes together once you find it on a small wooden deck, high tide pier, just west from the stronghold. There is a strangely beautiful house rooftop nearby, that almost reflects the close by sea. It is as it was designed to lower the pressure from the wind coming from the sea.

Above The Ancient Barrow Skyshard

Guide:
Skyshard is in the western central part of Wrothgar, south from Morkul Plain Wayshrine, west from Trader’s Road Wayshrine.

If you look closely on your map, you’ll spot a beige colored structure at this area. Head toward it. If you are aware of the shard in this location, and you don’t bother with reading the guidelines, you might end up entering this building. There is a rather long underground set of tunnels called Exile’s Barrow beyond those doors. You don’t want to end up exploring it, if you just want the 1/3 of a skill.

Instead of going into the ancient barrow, find an uphill path just east of it. Ascend on top of the nearby hill and look down on the building once more. You should now spot the bright beacon you are after. It is just behind a larger stone boulder, close to some annoying harpies.
