If you’re thinking about diving into The Elder Scrolls Online Greymoor expansion, you may want to know a few tips and tricks before you get started. In our Greymoor beginner’s guide, we will go over some of the new features that have been added to the game, as well as some general tips for getting started in the world of The Elder Scrolls Online.

The Elder Scrolls Online Greymoor Beginner’s Guide

The Elder Scrolls Online Greymoor expansion takes place in Western Skyrim. The expansion will also feature a new questline, areas to explore, public dungeons, trials, and more. If you’re new to the game or have been away for a while, here’s a beginner's guide to Greymoor. 

What are Antiquities?

The new Antiquities system in The Elder Scrolls Online Greymoor can be a bit confusing at first, but it’s really not that complicated once you’ve been given a proper explanation. Essentially, Antiquities allow players to discover hidden treasures by scrying and excavating the locations that you uncover by following leads.

We’ve got a very detailed guide on Antiquities already, but we’ll give you a quick rundown here. For starters, you can unlock the Antiquities system by visiting a woman named Verita Numida in the city of Solitude. She will give you an item called the Antiquarian’s Eye and will have you complete two quests that will show you how to use it.

From there, as you explore the world of Western Skyrim, you’ll uncover a variety of leads, which you can see in your Journal. When you find a lead, you can scry it (we’ll talk about this next) to uncover the location that you’ll need to excavate to find the hidden treasure. The more you do this, the rarer leads you’ll get, which will lead to better treasure.

What Is Scrying?

As we mentioned above, scrying is part of the new Antiquities system that was introduced with the Greymoor expansion. Once you’ve found a lead, you’ll need to complete a scrying mini-game of sorts that will reveal the location of the lead. If you’re not sure how to unlock the scry skill, we’ve got you covered. 

The scry mini-game will essentially require players to play a game of connect the dots. The more dots you connect, the fewer locations you’ll have to excavate to find the hidden treasure. For example, if you connect all six dots, you’ll only be shown one location, which will lead you straight to the treasure. However, let’s say you only connect four dots, you may have 2-3 different locations that appear on your map, but only one will contain the hidden treasure.
