What Is A Wayshrine?

Wayshrines are shrines that were built to honor the Divines by being a safe haven point where players can revive if you die while adventuring in Tamriel.  Once you visit a wayshrine, it becomes available on your map for you to use to fast travel at no cost.  You can also travel to any unlocked wayshrine from anywhere in Tamriel for a price paid in gold.  This price reduces with time and also can be reduced by champion point allocations.  Each zone begins with one available wayshrine.

Bleakrock Isle Summary

Bleakrock Isle is a small barren island located northwest of Morrowind.  It is sparsely populated and home to the Ebonheart Pact force to keep watch for enemy ships.

Bleakrock Isle is where Ebonheart Pact players began their journey after leaving the tutorial in Coldharbour but recent updates allow players to choose their location.  Nonetheless, Bleakrock Isle serves as a good starter area for beginning players to learn about The Elder Scrolls Online gameplay.
