Skyshards are an integral part of ESO progression. The only way to be able to use all skills in your skill tree you need to acquire a lot of skill points. You can get these via getting levels and by finishing certain quests. There are also collectibles called Skyshards, which grant you one third of a skill point each time you find one. Collect three and you get a skill point to invest however you like. Each land of Tamriel has Skyshards to be collected and bellow you can find a map of Tamriel with each land linked to a special page containing map of ESO Skyshards and their locations with screenshots for each land.
UPDATE (April 2017): We’ve added four DLC maps with their Skyshard locations – Hew’s Bane, Gold Coast, Wrothgar and Imperial City.
