One of the additions that come with Greymoor expansion of The Elder Scrolls Online is the Antiquity System. The new system lets you travel across Tamriel in search of lost artifacts. In this guide, we will walk you through everything you need to know about how to become the best Archaeologist Tamriel has ever known.

The Elder Scrolls Online: Greymoor Antiquity System

To help you with your excavations, you have the new Scrying Skills and Excavation Skills. Using these skills, you will be able to unearth lost relics including furniture, equipment, mount, and mythic items. These are powerful items in Greymoor expansion that provide you with huge benefits.

To get started, the first thing that you need to do is to head over to the Antiquarian Circle. You should be able to find in the city of Solitude in Western Skyrim. Once you are there, you will need to speak with Verita Numida. At this point, you will obtain the required skills and the Antiquarian’s Eye.

Once done, you will have the option to start your journey right away or stay to learn more about how the Antiquity System in Greymoor expansion works. Now that we are done starting the process, let us talk about finding leads:

Finding Leads

Finding leads for an Antiquity is arguably the most important step in the Antiquity System. Leaders in ESO Greymoor can be found in a few different ways throughout Tamriel. Once a lead is discovered, you will have 30 days to use it before it expires and you will need to rediscover it.

Some of the ways using which you can find leads in The Elder Scrolls Online: Greymoor includes the following:

  1. Exploration
  2. Defeating enemies
  3. Speaking with NPCs
  4. Examining treasures
  5. Completing quests
  6. Finding random Antiquities

It is also important to note that leads have varying difficulty levels. These range from “Green” which are fairly simple to “Orange” which are the toughest and include Mythic Items.

After successfully finding a lead, you will need to Scry for it. This can be done either from the Journal or from the Map as long as you are in the zone where the Antiquity is located. From that point forth, all it remains is to excavate the Antiquity and learn the lore associated with it.

Scrying and Excavating

First of all, let us talk about scrying in Greymoor. While scrying, you will need to connect all the points in the window. Successfully managing to do it will pinpoint a location where you will find an Antiquity. Failing to connect all the points will give you multiple locations which can be a lot more time-consuming.

After you are done with scrying, head to the location you got and equip your Antiquarian’s Eye to find the artifact and then dig to get it out.
