As you reunite with old allies in the ancient homeland of the High Elves in The Elder Scrolls Online: Summerset, you’ll discover 18 new Skyshards spread across ethereal landscapes, towering cities, and forgotten ruins. We’ve uncovered each riddle to show where you can unlock the Skyshards to obtain the Summerset Skyshard Hunter achievement.
Each slide includes the Skyshard’s general area, tips for reaching specific locations, and any obstacles, such as quests and portals, that must be overcome to complete your Skyshard adventure.
The first Skyshard can be located by heading south from the Cey-Tarn Keep Wayshrine toward Alinor. Follow the hill left of the city entrance to a tree located behind the Oleander Winery. Two Alinor Ringtails seem to enjoy the Skyshard’s secluded overlook.
From the Russafeld Heights Wayshrine, take the stone pathway southwest to Rellenthil. When you reach the bridge, follow the stream south until you find the Skyshard located at the base of a large tree.
Head north from Lillandril toward the Cathedral of Webs. When you approach the ruin stairs, head left along the pathway toward a tree with spiderwebs covering its base. (You may need to dispatch a few Skein Spiders along the way.)
Use the rock abutting the tree to jump across the gap onto the grassy area. The Skyshard's beacon should be in view for guidance.
From the Crystal Tower Wayshrine, head north along the gravel pathway toward Karnwasten. There is a cliff overlooking the beach left of the dungeon’s entrance that you can follow until you locate the Skyshard. Be careful as you descend: a Reef Viper guards the prize.
From King Haven’s Pass Wayshrine, travel north toward the coast. Follow the shoreline until you see the Skyshard, which you can access via a wooden plank jutting out from a cliff. There are several enemy Coral-Splitter NPCs in the way. If you keep moving toward the plank, they will drop aggro.
The sixth Skyshard can be found northwest of Shimmerene at the waterfall. Break from the main road and head to the body of water indicated on your map.
Perhaps one of the easier Skyshards to obtain in Summerset, follow the road south of Shimmerene and travel west before the road breaks to the southeast. You will come upon the Keep of the Eleven Forces. Simply walk up the stairs and advance to the end of the bridge.
The eighth Skyshard can be obtained by following the shoreline south from Sil-Var-Woad, located in the southeast corner of Summerset. Ultimately, you can either swim or travel by land, which will give you the opportunity to loot Psijic Portals or engage the new Abyssal Geyser. Once you’ve acquired the Skyshard, head west to discover Dusk Keep.
From the Russafeld Heights Wayshrine, head southeast through the flower field until you reach the waterfall. Use the Skyshard’s beacon to guide you at the stream.
Travel east from Lillandril until you reach Sea Keep. As you venture up the pathway to the stronghold entrance, break from the road and head left into the ravine. The Skyshard can be found underneath the Sea Keep bridge.
Located in the public dungeon Karnwasten, the eleventh Skyshard can be found near a derelict ship in the lower grotto. If you're entering from the west, use the pathways to descend toward the docks; however, players may find accessing the Skyshard easier if they enter from the east via the Veyond Wyte Wayshrine.
Sunhold’s Skyshard can be difficult to get to, so consider venturing into the public dungeon with other players or bringing plenty of gemstones.
Head west from the Sunhold Wayshrine and make your way through the dungeon’s city by following the road until you reach the upper levels. Two enemy NPCs guard the bridge, but they can be avoided.
Upon entering King Haven’s Pass Delve, locate the door along the right of the pathway to descend into the Coal-Splitter Caves. Head west to locate the Skyshard, using the beacon as a guide.
Travel north from the Eldbur Ruins Wayshrine and enter the Eton Nir Grotto. Simply move toward the back of the Delve to locate the 14th Skyshard.
Located in Archon’s Grove Delve, south of the Shimmerene Wayshrine, travel the pathway west until you reach the stream. The Skyshard can be obtained by heading south toward the waterfall. Note: several Dire Wolfs block the way.
Head south across the grass field from Shimmerene toward Tor-Hame. Enter the Delve and proceed to the back of the stronghold and fight your way to the second floor. Advance into the caves and fight several Yaghra enemy NPCs guarding the Skyshard.
From the Cey-Tarn Keep Wayshrine, located north of Alinor, travel west toward the coastline and take the boat across to Wasten Coraldale.
Once inside the Delve, fight your way along the pathway and turn north to the shore; then go left to locate the Skyshard near a gathering of trees.
Summerset’s 18th and final Skyshard requires the most footwork, as players will need to complete the first quest, The Queen’s Decree, which begins by speaking to Razum-dar outside of Shimmerene.
Once the quest has been completed, travel to the third and largest island of Summerset Isle, Artaeum -- home to the Psijic Order -- by entering the newly unlocked portal located beneath the Keep of the Eleven Forces.
Follow the main road west on Artaeum until you discover the Traitor’s Vault. Advancing toward the Skyshard can be difficult as you navigate the corridors inside the Delve; however, the Skyshard is located on the highest level.
