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.

On your map, wayshrines will appear with a blackened wayshrine icon when you are close to its location.  Once the wayshrine has been visited, the icon turns white.

What Is A Skyshard?

What Is A Treasure Map?

Treasure Maps are rewards that show the location of special chests that can only be seen when you have the map in your inventory.  You must travel to the specific location, dig the dirt mound, and then a chest will appear for you.

Treasure Map locations do NOT appear on your map.  You can slot the maps for quick access to compare your location.

Khenarthi’s Roost Summary

Khenarthi’s Roost is part of the base game content in the Aldmeri Dominion alliance.  It is a small island off the coast of Elsweyr.    Moon-sugar plantations are operated by Khajiit and Maormer inhabitants.  

After a devastating storm recently hit the island, Khenarthi’s Roost is now littered with broken ships, debris, and dressed Sea Vipers who are thought to have conjured the storm.

This is a great little area for new players to get the lay of the land when starting The Elder Scrolls Online.  Enemies are not as powerful nor plentiful as they are in other areas.  You can find skyshards, treasure maps, and learn how to use wayshrines while also enjoying exploration and a little combat.  Don’t overlook this tiny little island.
