At the southernmost extremity of Black Marsh, the region informally known as Murkmire gradually slopes down from the interior uplands of the north until it fades into the ocean. Legend holds that the land once extended much further south before it sank beneath the waves.

Murkmire is a region situated in southernmost Black Marsh, south of Shadowfen. The region is largely made up of marshland surrounding the Keel-Sakka River, and is home to the little-known Naga. The city of Lilmoth by the Oliis Bay can be found here, and the region is inhabited by various creatures, such as haj motas, kotu gava, and hackwings. There is also some exotic and previously unknown flora in the region such as catapult cabbages, scuttleblooms, static pitchers.

Murkmire was released on October 22, 2018 on PC/Mac and on November 6, 2018 on PS4/Xbox One. It was available for free from the November Daily Rewards. A prologue to Murkmire became available to players on October 8th. In the prologue, you meet a society of relic hunters called Cyrodilic Collections. They will need your help in hunting down a dangerous Argonian relic before their competitors find it. The prologue contains two story quests and six repeatable quests.

Deep Swamp Forge


  • Reaching some areas in this zone requires the use of the Fire Rock memento, which can be obtained by completing the quest Death Among the Dead-Water.
  • Murkmire was originally announced as a 4-player Adventure Zone similar to Craglorn, prior to Tamriel Unlimited, but was reworked into a DLC story zone.
  • This zone was originally intended to be located in western Black Marsh, just south of Shadowfen, and include the city of Gideon—as made clear by both official and datamined pre-release information. This version of the zone had three geographic regions consisting of swampland in the north, uplands in the center, and bogs in the south. It was at some point decided that the zone should be moved to southernmost Black Marsh instead, with a different geographic composition.
    • This design was later re-purposed into Blackwood, the uplands becoming the Niben Forest and the swamps becoming Gloomire.
  • Rounds three and seven of the Maelstrom Arena are themed after Murkmire, while the Blackwood Borderlands use many of the same assets. The Grand Topal Hideaway house also uses the "Murkmire" architecture style.
  • A number of books relating to Murkmire, such as The Blackwater War, An Orc Weaponsmith In Murkmire, and Tribes of Murkmire, were datamined prior to the DLC's redesign. An Orc Weaponsmith In Murkmire and Tribes of Murkmire in particular were altered to replace mentions of Gideon with Lilmoth, and the former was even renamed to From Wrothgar to Lilmoth: A Smith's Tale.
