Tips & Tricks


  • Check your tickets before you turn in a quest - you can only have up to 12 tickets at a time. No one wants to get all the way to turn-in and have to leave to spend their tickets!

  • Before you buy from the Impresario, test the drop rate of event goodies - tickets are valuable so save them for the things that don't drop if you can!

    • Also, ask your guildies or check the guild bank - sometimes people have extra they are willing to share! Exhaust your options before buying!

  • Items purchased form the Impresario are BOUND, but items from coffer drops are tradable and able to be sold on guild traders

  • You will only be able to pick up one of each zone daily, but you can share to get the others so check zone chat and ask your fellow guildies to get more dailies done. The new group finder tool may also be a good way to get the other quests!

  • Before the event begins - pick up and complete today's zone and guild dailies but don't turn them in. Turn them after the event begins for an extra set of coffers!


  • If you are doing a Thieves' guild heist we recommend setting yourself offline. We may or may not have had guild members port to us during a heist and blow our cover...

  • You don't need to be good at the Thieves' guild or Dark Brotherhood quests to complete them. Getting them done is getting them done, so if you're a bit clumsy don't worry and do them anyway. Leave no survivors and heck the timers!

  • Take a few seconds to review the area map before you start charging in, it'll help you when it comes time to escape

  • What's really fun about these instances...the hidden "doors." There are hidden cut throughs that can easily go unnoticed but become really helpful when you need to hide or make your escape

  • For Dark Brotherhood, do the bonus first then go after the main target, you'll get a better reward but even if you don't think you can you might surprise yourself

  • If you're looking to max our your sneakiness, here are some good build tips to help --

    • If you are a Nightblade, the Shadowy Disguise skill is you go-to here

    • Vampirism

      • Stage 4 with Unnatural Movement passive

      • Mist Form skill is great to have if you're not a Nightblade

    • Gear Sets​

      • Nightmother's embrace (5) [reduce radius by 2 meters and cost of sneak by 25%]

      • Night Terror (3) [reduce radius by 2 meters and cost of sneak by 10%]

      • Vesture of Darloc Brae (4) [reduce radius by 2 meters and cost of sneak by 10% + 5 piece bonus for the resource recovery while crouching]

    • Champion Points

      • Craft Tree

        • Sustaining shadows {S}

        • Steed's Blessing {S}

        • Fleet phantom {P}

        • Out of Sight {P}

        • Shadowstrike {S} (Dark Brotherhood related)

  • BANK YOUR TEL VAR STONES BEFORE LEAVING THE SEWER SAFE ZONE!!! Tel Var is the ONLY thing in game you can lose to other players. When you die you will lose half of your Tel Var currency. Go to the bank and deposit using the drop down menu in the 'Deposit Currency' screen. Tel Var will be blue. You cannot lose it from your bank, only on your person.

  • Siege of Cyrodiil Merits can be obtained once per day (per account) from Siegemaster's Coffers. So open your coffers one per day to can maximize how many Merits you can get

  • Strength in numbers! Don't be afraid to group up or follow a larger groups of people. It may save your life - and Tel Var!

  • Sewer and Base entrances are spots are often camped by griefers so be careful!

  • To get back to your faction base you need to go through the sewers. Need a quick port? Find a good hiding spot and open your Alliance War menu. Queue for any Cyrodiil campaign (ideally an open one) and you will be ported out of Imperial City and into a safe spot. You can requeue for Imperial City to get back to your base to finish your business. A few extra load screens can save some Tel Var! Like to live life dangerously? Plan on taking the sewers? Here are the sewer entrances closest to your home base:

    • Ebonheart Pact

      • Arena District

      • Memorial District

    • Daggerfall Covenant

      • Elven Gardens District

      • Nobles District
