The Elder Scrolls Online – Where to Find the Skyshards: Part 1

by Bryan Dawson

Skyshards are extremely valuable in The Elder Scrolls Online because for every three Skyshards collected you earn one skill point. There are 336 total Skyshards in ESO, which equates to 112 skill points if you collect them all. Skyshards are not exclusive, which means that they appear in the same location for all players and can be collected once by each player. There are in-game clues to the location of each Skyshard so you can note which shards you’ve collected and which you have yet to find.

Note: The current list of Skyshards covers most of the shards accessible at lower levels.
