ESO Iliac Bay Time Breach Locations – Breaches on the Bay Quest

Breaches on the Bay is the second quest in the Psijic Order quest line that takes place in Iliac Bay, a region that encompasses three maps. You’ll need to find and seal nine breaches – three each in Glenumbra, Stormhaven and the Alik’r Desert. After you seal all of them, you’ll advance to the second level of the Psijic Order, and get the second part of the Psijic Regulator achievement / trophy, called Psijic Pursuer. In this guide, we’ll show you how to complete Breaches on the Bay quest, where to find all time breaches in Iliac Bay.

Glenumbra time breach locations

ESO Summerset Glenumbra Time Breach Seal Location

The first on our list is located in southern Glenumbra, north from Daenia Dolmen, southeast from the Baelborne Rock Wayshrine, south from Deleyn’s Mill. Do not follow the shore line – make your way across the river from the northern road. There is a narrow opening between the mountain to your right and the hill to your left, close to the small waterfall. The opening leads downhill, past a painter’s equipment. The first time breach is near the end of this path, above the shore.

For the second one, you’ll have to head a bit north, toward the Beldama Wyrd Tree. This place of interest is between Farwatch Wayshrine to the northwest, and Wyrd Tree Wayshrine to the southeast. You can spot it from afar. Once in the area, head to the northern part of this large tree and you’ll find the second time breach you need to seal.

For the final Glenumbra seal, you should head toward the north if area, where the Burial Mounds are. This zombie-infested area is south from Crosswych Wayshrine, southwest from Crosswych town. You’ll find the final portal in the western part of Burial Mounds, on a small hill above a crypt.

Stormhaven time breach locations

The first Stormhaven time breach on our list is in the western part of the map, in the Koeglin Lighthouse area. This is south from Koeglin village, and west from Bonesnap Ruins. Once you’re in this part of the map, find a sunken quarterdeck. Go below the top deck, into the captain’s cabin, which is partially underwater. This is where you’ll spot the time breach.

For the next one, head to the northern part of the map, where the Moonlit Maw mountain entrance is. The Pariah Abbey Wayshrine is south from it. You’ll see two stone staircases there. They lead into the Moonlit Maw. The time breach is next to the western one, hidden on top of a small hill.

The last Stormhaven location is east from the previous one. You’ll need to head toward Cumberland Falls, north from Wind Keep. Follow this curvy road, and as you go across two tiny wooden bridges, pan your camera toward the top of the small waterfall. This is where the final breach is.

Head south from Hoonding’s Watch Wayshrine and keep climbing the plateaus. You’ll find the time breach in the southwestern part of the ruined fort, in the open area, next to a round fountain.

      LOL un-clench, dude.
      Whether or not they got he words mixed up, the markers on the map are just as helpful, if not more so. Be grateful that he even made this guide, otherwise you’d be still looking for those breaches.

      Between the written directions and the map screenshots, you should have no problem finding the locations, unless you’re simply too lazy to do your own critical thinking.
      Lokesh did us all a HUGE favor in even making these guides. BE GRATEFUL.

      Hey John Smith, you’re one ungrateful fk you know that? Someone spends time making a beautiful guide and you give them a fk off because some part of it wasn’t perfect?

    Thank you very much for all the work you put into this to help others. I had no problems finding any of them. AWESOME JOB!!

  2. Roberta

    Ok, maybe I’m an idiot but how do I get to the first location to begin with? I’m in Summerset. Just started playing this game about a month ago. Thanks for the help and indulging a noob.

      Can you travel to the closest Wayshrine, and go from there? If I recall correctly there should be some of the Wayshrines active even if you start on Summerset.

    thank you for this great help and explenation. Without it i would never have solved this quest or just by accident. Thank you and keep up the good work

    The m**** who came up with this idea that we should run around these islands as we haven’t allready done it a million times while leveling our toons should be saked immediately. What a lack of imagination:(((

    And they think that I’m going to do this to all my 4 toons. No no no. I’ll cancel my subscription and play a game that doesn’t melt my brains.

    And thank you for helping other who feel the same.

    Awesome Guide! (Y) other homos that says anything else would still be looking if it wasn’t for this little gem 🙂

  6. David Venter

    This was super helpful thanks. I was trying to find these things on my own and gave up after 5 hours of nothing. Finally decided to google it and found this. Yay!

  7. Marsuki

    This guide is a heaven send, even scrolling in on my phone I could tell exactly where I needed to go. Thank you to the guide maker!!

  8. Charles Curtis (ChinleCharlie)

    I am 86 years old and have been playing RPG’s foe 40 years. I now count my playing time in days rather than years. finding guides like yours helps me progress thru this nearly neverending game with less effort and a whole lot less time. I appreciate the time and effort you have put in to help us. Thank You!!

    Thank you for making the guide I just finally got around to doing the quest line and couldn’t find a few and the map markers and screenshots were savior’s.

  12. WoodCat22

    I was at a loss as to how to begin this quest- so I just used this in 2022- thank you so much!! Had no trouble at all (and as someone above said as well, I am directionally challenged). Many thanks again!!

  13. QueenOfHC

    I must say, you always do excellent work! Your guides have been a lifesaver on multiple occasions since I just started playing this game a month ago and had no previous experience playing any of the other related games. Thank you for all of your efforts in helping so many! You deserve an award!!

  14. Jamie

    Ty so much for the guide! And who cares if one word in one sentence of the last directions was east instead of west. With all the photos added, I noticed right away it was to the west not the east. Also, by the way shrines already being unlocked, I easily followed the photo and looked for the correct named location so it wasn’t rocket science to figure out which direction to go. Again, ty so much!
