Crafted with rare steel, metals from beyond Nirn, and fine-cut gems, this necklace shimmers with mystic power. When the Sorcerer-King himself commissions a piece, only the very best will do.

The Sea-Serpent's Coil is the Mythic necklace that comes with the Protective trait. It can be obtained through the Antiquities system. It was released as part of the High Isle Chapter.

When the necklace's buff/debuff (called "Serpent's Rebuke") has been triggered, a blue flaming eye appears over the player's head.


1 item: While at full Health, you gain 40% damage reduction. After taking damage while at full Health in combat, you gain Serpent's Rebuke for 10 seconds, snaring yourself by 40% and gaining Major Berserk and Major Courage, increasing your damage done by 10% and Weapon and Spell Damage by 430. The damage resistance does not apply while Serpent's Rebuke is active.


  • 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.

ON-icon-fragment-Black Eltheric Pearls.png Black Eltheric Pearls From Giant Clams High Isle Oh, black pearls! According to the Bedtime Tales of Borwaeliel, they're the result of Trinimac slicing off a handful of Hermaeus Mora's beady little eyes and scattering them across the Eltheric. So, be careful handling them! — Amalien Fairy tales aside, deep black pearls like this have fascinating origins. Some occur naturally, but most come from Maormer pearl farms where Surfpeelers insert snake scales into Pyandonean Snap-Mussels. It's an interesting—if unsettling—process. — Reginus Buca I read a treatise on Sea Elf pearl culturing as a teenager. I had a lot of free time! Anyway, there was some debate about whether mer-made pearls had alchemical potential similar to natural pearls. Based on this discovery, I think they do! — Gabrielle Benele
ON-icon-trait material-Sapphire.png Frigid Sapphire Frozen Ruins The Rift This stone is cold to the touch! Strange, considering I don't detect any frost-related enchantments. Gems infused with mystic spellcraft sometimes turn cold. No one knows why. It must have some power over perception or natural limitations. — Gabrielle Benele I saw a gem like this at the College of Sapiarchs once. It was part of a collection of focal relics—items that magnify perception or dampen unruly phenomena during rituals. Maybe this aids with concentration? I could use something like that! — Amalien I'm more interested in its origins than its powers. This gem cutting technique is foreign to me. It almost looks like a lapidary tumbled it in a sand pail after the final cuts. Sea Elves favor unusual cuts. I wager this came from Pyandonea. — Verita Numida
ON-icon-fragment-Meteoric Beads.png Meteoric Beads Mages Guild daily quest reward boxes Grahtwood/Deshaan/Wayrest Don't often see beads hewn from meteoric glass. From my experience, the arcane potential of the glass has a lot to do with its physical dimensions. Based on the holes here, I'd say they were strung on a chain or thread to make some kind of necklace. — Ugron gro-Thumog I've never studied smaller shards of meteoric glass working in concert, but it's possible that stringing these beads together on a magical conductor—an enchanted chain, for instance—they might exhibit power comparable to a larger, intact shard! — Gabrielle Benele If meteoric beads like this have real magical potential, it's strange that you don't see more mages wearing them. I discovered a bead like this in a Sea Elf wreck near Vulkhel Guard. Maybe the Pyandoneans are the only ones who've mastered the craft. — Verita Numida
ON-icon-fragment-Sea Silver Chain.png Sea Silver Chain Jewelry Survey Reports Any Zone What a delicate piece! Crafting links this small would be a laborious process, but the results speak for themselves. It's certainly Elven. Maormer, I should think, based on the pattern and the bluish hue of the silver. — Reginus Buca You're right, Reginus. This is Sea Elf work. According to legend, King Orgnum was the first person on Tamriel to work in silver. He drew it out of the ground like splinters from a wound. Strange, given that he's a creepy vampire wizard! — Amalien The chain's enchantments are extraordinary! They seem bound to the concept of focus at the expense of potential outcomes. Not unlike Psijic time-hewing. Paring down choice is a dangerous prospect, but there must be some utility to it. — Gabrielle Benele
ON-icon-fragment-Steel Serpent Fangs.png Steel Serpent Fangs Serpent Bog world boss High Isle These bits of metal seem forged to resemble snake fangs. Never a good sign. I can't say for certain, but given the irregular finish and these scratches, I'd say they're a few hundred years old at least. Mid to late 1E, for certain.. — Gabrielle Benele' I've seen adornments like this before--far too many times. They're Sea Elf charms. Sailors wear them on ankle bracelets, necklaces, and earrings in honor of their disgusting snake-king, Orgnum. Fair warning: They're almost certainly cursed! — Amalien These are of Sea Elf make, but they're not like the trinkets that pirates wear now. See this banding? This is venom-crucible steel. Sea Elves stopped making it due to the cost of the materials. It's a wicked kind of metal, but still, masterful work. — Ugron gro-Thumog
