    I just want to point out that you don’t have to go through all the questing to get shard number 9 if you don’t want to . There’s a large pole just west of Wailing Maw that you can run up that will take you to the shard.

  2. Aryotus

    #16 is do-able solo here in Cold harbour, I used 5 Grand soul gems. When you get to the little area the Skyshard is at the back, can’t swim past, I just ran straight for it by dieing using a gem running ( rinse/repeat) till you get to it. Kill mobbers there, use soul gem to stay there, (rinse/repeat) till you kill all 6 or 7 and the Shatd is yours. Now swim all the way to entrance.

  3. Xythiss

    You can’t swim back to the entrance. Water that was shallow and safe on the way out is all slaughterfish surprise heading back. This is the most ridiculously overly difficult, sadistic delve in the entire game. It’s so bad it should be a group event. Not wise to attempt this dungeon solo if less than level 47 I’d say.

  4. Dean Godde

    I hid behind a tall rock close to the sky shard at 16 after coming back with a soul gem and sucked it in from there the enemies nearby didnt notice me . So you dont have to keep dying there fighting them there until they are all dead

  5. Sarah J Colegrove

    If you approach the Wailing Maw skyshard from the right angle, you can see it, light beam and all, despite the ice.

  6. Sarah J Colegrove

    The Lost Fleet skyshard (#15) is visible, light beam and all, if you approach it from the right angle. I just finished that quest, and got the last skyshard in Coldharbour.
