Skyshard can be found on a boat, at the dock of Lunar Fang Docks POI. These docks are on a side of a river that connects central Cyrodiil and the southeastern lake. Do not try to swim in this river because the fish will eat you alive. Dying from fish is actually a good thing because you get an achievement “Slaughtered” when they defeat you. Upon reaching the docks you can notice many Lunar Fangs around it. These are hostile creatures that turns into Werewolfs as they detect danger. When they turn their health bar fills up. Just because of this it is pointless to burst damage them straight from the start. In order to reach the collectible you need to jump from the docks above on top of the boat.

Jumping into the river, in order to swim to the collectible, is not that smart … but it does yield an achievement.
Clear the docks, them jump into the boat.
Ruined spire peering north to the Tower.
On top of the largest tower in Homestead Ruins. You’ll recoginze this tower due to its top being destroyed. There are Homestead creatures defending this area. There are many patrols that can make your life miserable if you do not pay enough attention (or are going on your own). Pressure of battle that may occur at any moment near this location may pose a problem. Despite all the pressure and dangers, rushing toward the shard is not a wise decision. Once you get to the collectible you will probably have the best view in Cyrodiil, since there is a way to climb even above where the shard is. Also, great for spotting enemies 😉

This is one of those skyshards that are far away from main road. Luckily for us, it is in an open area so we are not forced to fight enemies like we are in caves. It is located in the western side of Wenyandawik POI. This area is part of Ayleid Ruins. You can notice them from afar by its distinctive tall stone walls and circular platform that holds a well. This is an Ayleid Well. Upon interacting with this well, you receive a buff – Ayleid Health Bonus – that boosts your Max Health.

Six-legged assassins crawl the cave.
Skyshard is hidden inside Bloodmayne Cave – public dungeon. Following northern coast of a river, you’ll come across a part of wood, distinct from other part of the map by glowing mushrooms and plants. There are six-legged spiders that crawl around the area. They can be found inside a nearby public dungeon as well.
When you enter Bloodmayne Cave, follow the southern wall of the cave. This way you can skip many creatures that habitat the largest cave room. There are many patrols inside, that you can come across. Keep progressing safely until you reach the last cave room. Inside the room, near a rock, beside red and blue mushrooms there is a +1 skill point piece collectible.

The Black Dagger’s prize.
This collectible is inside Breakneck Cave – public dungeon. There are not many hostile creatures defending entrance to this cave. Couple of dusty paths lead to this point. There are wooden platforms attached to the surrounding rocks. Enemies Black Daggers can be found inside. They come in groups of two. Many of them patrol the area. You can pull one of the group members with range abilities. Skyshard we are looking for is inside the northernmost cave room. It is on the top of a large wooden platform. Do not rush toward it, because many Black Daggers patrol this specific part of the cave. They can easily spot you even if you are out of their sight. If you are close enough, whether they can see you or not, they will still go after you. Take it easy, and clear them out before heading to the level of the platform where the skyshard is hidden. The last Black Dagger stands next to the skyshard, but you can easily defeat him.

Shard is hidden inside Haynote Cave – public dungeon. Camp outside the cave is full of enemies so be extra careful here. Same Skeletal creatures can be found inside the cave. Even though they come in groups of two and three, you can pull them one by one, without alerting the rest of the group. Collectible is in the last cave room. It stands right next to dungeon’s boss – Diabolist Volcatia. This boss can be hard to solo. She summons a strong melee add, but the most fearsome attack she does is the single target instant magic spell. In order to mitigate this damage you need to burst her down, heal yourself when needed with spells and potions. The most useful spell against her is spell reflect.

Walk the Shadowed Path.
This collectible is inside the public dungeon Nisin Cave. Entrance to Nisin Cave is just north of three-ponds lake. There is a camp of hostile creatures in front of the entrance. If you plan to solo the dungeon, you should be aware of a couple of things. You really do not want to die inside. If you die, it means you will be teleported to a wayshrine your faction holds. Skyshard is hidden inside the last Nisin Cave room. There are wisps inside the cave that patrol the area. Try not to pull them while cleaning the way towards the collectible. In my case, there was one strong creature in a tunnel between two largest Nisin Cave rooms. I was able to pass him by without alerting him. If you are up for a challenge, try defeating him after collecting the skyshard. It is possible to split apart a group of mobs by pulling one of the members, with a range spell.

Group of 2 mobs are regular. Patrolling creatures sometimes join this groups. Skyshard you are looking for is inside the largest Pothole Cavern room. It is on top of a small stone shrine, next to candles. This is a possible spawn area of Serrin Vol. He is a pretty tough mob to solo. In order to defeat him you need to annul his powerful instant spell. This spell is devastating and you need to find a way to survive it. He also spawns an add that helps him in combat. Another prize for defeating Serrin Vol comes in a shape of lorebook “On the Detachment of the Sheath”. This lorebook is in the same area where you can collect the skyshard.

Where bear and ogre burrow.
This collectible is inside Serpent Hollow Cave – public dungeon. Serpent Hollow Cave entrance is east of nearby small lakes. It is on a higher ground. Ogres that populate inside cave have camp outside as well. They are quite unique with their appearance. They also have bears as pets. How cute! Inside cave is much like its outside. It is fill with bears and ogres. Couple of ogres patrols area with their bear pets (I want one!), thus you can easily die if you are not careful. The first room can pose the problem as it is rather small, and you can’t clearly notice the first ogre patrol. This patrol walks between two largest cave rooms. Be extremely careful while pulling bear groups here. You don’t want to pull ogre patrol as well. Bear power attacks are extremely powerful. It should be dodged in any mean necessary.
Skyshard we are out for is inside the last cave room, southeastern part of Serpent Hollow Cave. It stands in water of a nearby waterfall, near a tree. A Tree you say in the cave? Yes a tree. Ogre Bruuke can be found in this cave room. Another Ogre patrol this area. Lorebook The Slave Pits of Coldharbour is just across our collectible, beside a wooden path platform.
