Learn how to find all the Skyshards in The Elder Scrolls Online and gain valuable Skill points.
Committed Elder Scrolls Online players looking to spec out as many skills, morphs, and passives for their characters are going to need Skill Points — and lots of them. Skill Points are used to advance a character’s abilities, and are essential for PvE and PvP players alike. In many ways, Skill Points are the lifeblood of ESO, helping a character to grow and develop.
In total, there are roughly 320+ Skill Points available in The Elder Scrolls Online. This sounds like a lot, but when you consider the insane number of skills you can develop (Class Skills, Armor Skills, Crafting, Legerdemain, etc.), there’s simply not enough for a single character to learn everything.
Be that as it may, players hungry to advance characters to their maximum potential need to hunt down as many Skill Points as possible, and this is where Skyshards come in.
Skyshards are responsible for about 1/3 of all Skill Points available in ESO. That’s a lot, and Skyshard hunting is a viable pastime in The Elder Scrolls Online.
For every three Skyshards collected, a character gains a single Skill Point. Skyshards can be found in every game zone, and are scattered throughout all of Tamriel. This is great news for players, for undoubtedly an ESO character will stumble upon a Skyshard location in the course of exploring and dungeon diving.
Gaining Skill Points in this manner is slow going though, and what players really need is a map to find all the Skyshards in The Elder Scrolls Online.
