ESO: Shards of Heaven in the Deadlands Guide

 On November 1, 2021, the new  update 32 Deadlands of  the MMORPG  The Elder Scrolls Online will be released . The Land of the Dead and Distant Tombs are new areas that come into play with the update. That means there are new Sky Shards again. We tell you where to find them.


What are Sky Shards? Skyshards are brightly glowing crystals scattered across the map of Tamriel. You can recognize them from a distance by the white-bluish glowing beam that rises up into the sky.


Sky shards  can be collected by the players. Three collected sky shards give the player one skill point each. It is therefore always worthwhile to look out for the shining stones. They can be found both in vaults and outdoors.


How to get all of the Sky Shards in the Deadlands

Two new areas come into play with ESO Deadlands. In the area “The Land of the Dead” you will find 5 of the 6 new Sky Shards. 3 of them are in the open air. For the other 2 sky shards you have to enter a vault.

Skyshards in vaults:

The following Sky Shards can be found in vaults in the Land of the Dead area.


Heavenly Shard 1 - In the “Brandmal Reformatorium”

This shard of sky is in the vault with the name “Brandmal-Reformatorium”. The vault is in the west of the dead lands. You can get there by traveling to the Blood Pit Path Shrine and following the path north.

Stay in the vault on the left. When you arrive to the north of the vault, a path leads upwards. You just have to follow this until you find the lavishly staged sky shard.

Heavenly Shard 2 - In the vault “Folly of the false martyrs”

In the east of the Dead Lands is the vault “Folly of the False Martyrs”. First travel to the path shrine of the same name and follow the path north. At the fork you have to keep to the right so that you can reach the vault.

If you enter the vault, it doesn't really matter whether you choose the path on the left or on the right. On the right side you can see the sky shard on a higher rock. He cannot be reached from there. The small passage at the top of the map is important. If you follow this, you will get to the ledge with the sky shard.


Outdoor Sky Shards:

You can find these sky shards in the open world of the Land of the Dead:


Sky Shard 3 - South of the shrine to the Annihilarchen summit

First travel to the shrine of the Annihilarchen summit. To the south of it you will find the sky shard on a rock.

Sky Shard 4 - On the stairs of Jynd's forge

You can find this shard in the north-east of the Land of the Dead. Travel to the Lime Clods Shrine and head north to Jynd's Forge. Follow the path through the forge. The Sky Shard is to the right of the grand staircase.

Always keep to the right until you come to a large staircase. There you should already see the glow of the shard.

Alternatively, you can also jump onto the small ledge east of the forge and the sky shard with a running run on your mount.


Sky Shard 5 - On a broken, natural bridge, north of the raging coast

Another sky shard can be found north of the Shrine of the Raging Coast in the south-west of the Land of the Dead. You can reach this shrine via the “Portal into the Senge”. The portal is located on the place of the portals to the south-east in the remote grave district.

You can find another Sky Shard in the Distant Lanes of Distant Grave.


Sky Shard 6 - In the broken alleys of Ferngrab

You can find the last sky fragment in the broken lanes of Ferngrab. There are many ways to get to this shard. Ultimately, all you have to do is walk towards the shrine. You can reach it via a staircase near it. Or you travel directly to the shrine of the Bruchgassen.


From there you choose the path over the two suspension bridges on the left. The path leads to the south-east. Then run a bit of slalom through a plateau full of columns. You will know what is meant when you see it. At the end of this plateau is the rock with the sky shard.

In total you can collect 6 sky shards as described. This gives you a total of 2 skill points. Should you still need more skill points, then you can still collect the sky shards in the remaining areas.
