  • Five fragments are required to create the item, all of which require a master-quality Lead in order to scry, and are classed as master difficulty to excavate.
  • You are required to be at least level 7 in Scrying, and have the Antiquarian Insight IV passive in order to scry Master difficulty leads.
  • Fragment Leads are largely found in the same zone as where the fragment is excavated, save for a few cases where it may be found in different zone. The Lurker-Skin Sheath, for instance, is found in Reaper's March but excavated in High Isle.

ON-icon-fragment-Bloodshot Oculus.png Bloodshot Oculus Watcher Mobs in The Deadlands, Atoll of Immolation or The Cauldron Blackwood , The Deadlands or Deshaan I believe this eyeball twitches to stare at me while I'm not looking. Unsettling, to say the least. Daedric origin, I believe, but which Daedra? Unsure. — Reginus Buca I took a tome on Daedric oddities from the shelf, and by Mauloch, I think the eye followed my hand straight to the text. As if it was reading it. Has to be a Watcher eyeball, right? Right? — Ugron gro-Thumog This thing definitely moves of its own accord, but I don't know if that indicates life, or just an unsettling enchantment. I'm obliged to wonder, if this eye can perceive what we're doing, is there someone watching on the other end? — Gabrielle Benele
ON-icon-fragment-Lurker-skin Sheath.png Lurker-skin Sheath Treasure Chests in The Vile Manse Public Dungeon Reaper's March This armor sheathing bears more than a passing resemblance to the skin of the creatures known as Lurkers. These beings serve the Daedric Prince Hermaeus Mora, and are rarely seen beyond the plane of Apocrypha. — Gabrielle Benele By examining the edges of this sheathing, I've noted that this skin appears to have been harvested from a living being. Whether this was done willingly or not is hard to tell. — Ugron gro-Thumog Well noted, Ugron, but the skin lives still. My research indicates that some sort of alchemical treatment might be preserving this sheathing in a state of quasi-life. Further study is required. Unfortunately. — Reginus Buca
ON-icon-fragment-Sclerotic Tentacle.png Sclerotic Tentacle Watchlings in The Deadlands or Atoll of Immolation Blackwood or The Deadlands This has to be one of the most distasteful antiquities I've ever had to catalogue. It's still twitching. This tentacle matches the description of no living being on Nirn. Clearly a Daedric relic of some kind. — Gabrielle Benele Runes have been etched quite deftly into the soft flesh. Hmm. Hard to make out what this inscription means, but I can make out Hekhem and Meht. Tentative examination suggests it is from a Daedric Watcher. — Ugron gro-Thumog Never seen anything quite like it. It appears to have been harvested for some dark purpose. Honestly, it appears ready to crawl across my face and push through my nostril. I'd strongly advise caution. — Reginus Buca
ON-icon-fragment-Seeker-sinew Thread.png Seeker-sinew Thread Clothing nodes The Deadlands Coils and coils of this thread, definitely made from the sinews of a Daedra.I [sic] sense an unpleasant warmth still radiating from the relic. Why a Seeker's corpse would be utilized in such a fashion is hard to fathom. — Gabrielle Benele I contacted a colleague from the Mages Guild to have a look at this. A great deal of magicka was expended during its creation. According to my associate, close examination of the relic could result in a splitting headache and a long bout of aphasia. — Ugron gro-Thumog I took some time to reread Elizanev's Treatise on Otherworldly Garments. Apparently, when threaded through a needle and sewn into a piece of linen, this thread will make the linen move and undulate in a distasteful and organic fashion. Horrific! — Reginus Buca
ON-icon-fragment-Twitching Eyeball.png Twitching Eyeball Gravelight Sentry Miniboss in Imperial City Prison A most distressing relic, I must say. This thing is still leaking ocular fluid? It is not an eye from a mortal race, I can tell you that. Leaving further examination for colleagues with stronger stomachs. — Gabrielle Benele I can confirm this unusual relic comes from no creature of Nirn. My assumption is that it might be from a Daedric Watcher, but that would be pure conjecture. I imagine it has a deeply unpleasant smell. — Ugron gro-Thumog The normally soft and pliable sclera has a hard, almost keratin-esque quality to it. I wouldn't advise handling it with bare hands. Objects like this often leave stains that are impossible to wash off. — Reginus Buca


  • This item is sometimes referred to as the "Mantle Pelagicon" style in the files.
  • The Twitching Eyeball lead can only drop after defeating all mobs of this miniboss. Solely killing the Gravelight Sentry will only drop gold, whereas the lead can drop by looting the last dead Xivkyn Necromancer in the encounter.
  • The Critical Chance bonus increases for every 3 lorebooks obtained, regardless of completed lore collections, unlike Mage's Guild progress. There are 297 books in Shalidor's Library. The Crit Chance bonus follows the formula (1528 / 297) per lore book, but only increments every 3 books, so it increases by 15 or 16 for every 3 lorebooks found, due to Rounding. Thus the bonuses are: 15, 30, 45, 61, 76, 91, 106, 122 ... and so on.
