Alik’r Desert has sixteen Skyshards for you to collect as you explore the story of the undead problem King Fahara’jad is facing. This arid, yet beautiful, land is full of great adventures and we are sure you’ll have fun as you spend levels 31 through 37 here. Bellow are screenshot guides and walkthroughs for each shard and if you are having trouble with any of them feel free to let us know and we’ll provide the information you need.
Sentinel of a domed tower.
It is hard to notice this skyshard on top of the guard tower in Sentinel. If you take a close look at the screenshot above you will see the Sentinel Wayshrine bellow the tower in the background. You can’t actually get to the skyshard from up here. You have to enter the door on the ground floor of the tower to reach the top.
Go inside the tower on the ground floor …
… and use the door to get to the top.

You can see the wayshrine in the background.
Shedding shame in the oasis.
The collectible is placed on a small island in the middle of the oasis. Surrounded by boulders to the south. On the screenshot above it has already been picked up so there is no light pillar.
Across the ruin from the Warrior.
This area holds another quest you have to do for Lady Clarisse Laurent called “Thwarting The Aldmeri Dominion“. Shard is up on top of one of the mounds in the area.
As you move around the southern part of Salas En you’ll probably notice the collectible.
Stored on a Bergama roof.
As you go through Bergama you should spot the shard on one of the houses.
You will have to find a spot where you can go up the stairs and across the overpasses to reach the shard’s location.

Beside a drydocked stern.
You’ll need to go to the ground level of the ship being built, underneath all the scaffolding. You’ll see the shard’s shine in the back.

Left out in the open by Kozanset Mages.
You’ll notice the shard while riding around Kozanset.
You do not have to enter the Mages guild to get to its roof, just use the stairs.

Near a paid feather-finder.
As you approach the bridge you’ll probably see the bridge.
Bridge across sand dunes seems to be a bit pointless.
Tears shed for a toppled spire.
The toppled spire mentioned in the journal hint an d the skyshard clearly shining through it.
Zariya’s body is right next to the shard.
Second stop on her search for the Pearl.
It took me almost two full runs through the dungeon to notice this shard. This is even more embarrassing when you find out where it is located. It’s just right from the entrance to the first large room. It is amazingly hidden, due to the fact that this is a rather small corner. In my defense, I can also add that the nearby Dwarven machines make a loud noise, so I couldn’t even hear the shard.
Find and enter Aldunz dungeon.

Buried respite from desert heat.
If you are a passionate shard collector like we are, once you enter a dungeon in search of the shard, you always aim for the smaller rooms. That should be the case this time, too. It is set in the small room in northeastern Coldrock Diggins, surrounded by beautiful blue gems.

Dig deep, don’t be embarrassed.
Divad’s Chagrin Mine has its main treasure hidden in the central room. This is the room with the large stream. Our collectible is found inside a small cart, next to the sack and two trolls who happen to be having a meal. Although they have their backs toward the shard, they will attack you once you get close. Quite strange, don’t you think?
Divad’s Chagrin Mine is up on a hill north of the nearby oasis.

Watch out for trolls.

Blown down a mine shaft.
Once you enter the dungeon, keep going to your left. As you reach the farthest northeastern part of the mine, you should enter the small room with the shard inside. When you eventually find it, you’ll notice where this skyshard got its name from.
Find and enter Sandblown Mine solo dungeon.

A caravan’s wreckage marks the path.
All Alik’r Desert solo dungeons have been remodeled and polished. This is also the case with the Santaki dungeon. The Santaki shard is now located inside a small side room in the southeastern part. Once you enter it, keep going to your right and soon enough you’ll end up in this area.
You’ll recognize the entrance to Santaki dungeon by all the caravan wreckage scattered around nearby.

Several steps away from a Steam Pipe that gives additional loot.

Trapped within the steam closet.
The shard inside Yldzuun is found in the large northeastern dungeon. It is a bit strange that the tunnels have more enemies than the larger areas, like these rooms. Nonetheless, the collectible is at the center of the room, next to the large central pillar. A quest item – Tharayya Journal Entry: 19 – can be found nearby.
Find and enter Yldzuun.

Monumental find in the Lost City.
Entrance to Lost City of the Na-Totambu public dungeon
Collectible is in a hole in the big central chamber of the Lost City. You can just drop down into the hole with the shard, but be careful because there is a Gargoyle guarding it. You can pick it up without alerting the Gargoyle and effectively solo picking it up. Otherwise bring some friends along because the mobs are tough for soloing.
