Later in life, Archmage Syrabane sought to perfect the obscure art of Mysticism. Endless lattices of protection layered within this clasp cause it to thrum with arcane power. This item cannot be dyed.

Syrabane's Ward is a Mythic heavy belt that comes with the Sturdy trait. It can be obtained through the Antiquities system. It was released as part of the Firesong DLC.


1 item: You cannot move while Bracing. While Bracing, you create a 12 meter zone of protection. Group members within the zone increase the amount of damage they can block by 30% and their Health Recovery by 950. The Health Recovery cannot effect yourself.


  • 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-armor-Sash-Sul-Xan.png Frog Metal Buckle Blacksmithing writ reward crates Galen How unusual, a belt buckle made of buoyant steel. Perhaps intended for a sailor's belt? The properties of frog metal are well documented, though its origins are still a bit murky. — Verita Numida Very true. Whenever you're dealing with a piece like this, determining whether it's a primary-source creation from an alchemical process. Old Syrabane in action again! Or made from a reclaimed chunk of Thrassian material is a useful step. — Amalien All indications suggest this was primary source. If the papers are true and Syrabane himself did develop the process to artificially create the metal, this may have been forged by his hand. It's certainly old enough. — Reginus Buca
ON-icon-minor adornment-Two-Loop Earrings.png Rune-Scribed Braces Shipwright's Regret final boss Galen These brackets are made up a few different metals, and sized for a belt of some kind. Interesting, if a bit of over kill. Why would you need multiforging techniques to brace something that holds up your breeches? — Reginus Buca The materials, as well! Gold, frog metal, silver, stahlrim. Needlessly complex, but quite potent from an arcane perspective. If I had to guess, these metals were chosen as much for their symbolic properties as for their physical ones. — Verita Numida I believe I may have an answer. A tiny stamp on one of the braces, a maker's mark. Syrabane himself, from the time of the All-Flags Navy. Perhaps, as you said, Verita, he forged this melting pot of metals in symbolic resonance to the armada. — Gabrielle Benele
ON-icon-solvent-Purified Water.png Iridescent Pearlwater Wash Fishing Holes in Galen and High Isle Galen How intriguing, this pot contains a blend of sea water (Eltheric, I believe) and ground pearl. Leaves such a delightful sheen on materials when applied. Do you think it was ceremonial or mystical in nature? — Reginus Buca I'm not familiar with any cultures that make regular use of pearlwater in ceremonies, though most sea-faring groups do make use of oceanic byproducts. The aesthetic effect is quite pleasant. Verita, what mystical implications might this have? — Amelien Symbolically, the pearl's association with the hard shells of clams could represent some kind of defensive element? I can think of a half dozen ways to incorporate pearlwater in protective magics, though I've never seen a reagent quite like this. — Verita Numida
ON-icon-fragment-Asp-Leather Strap.png Indrik-Hide Strap Indrik Frolic world boss in Summerset Galen I'm not even sure where to start. It took a great deal of research to even determine the beast of origin. I was very surprised to learn it's Indrik hide. Not a material you regularly find in the finest of clothing, let alone used as a humble belt strap. — Amalien The fact that Indrik was used indicates either this piece was connected to a sacred relic of Aldmeri faith, or perhaps just that the crafter had access to a dead Indrik. Either way, it's a unique opportunity to study the material properties of the hide. — Ugron gro-Thumog I am going to go with the former. Or at least, I posit that the crafter at least had some respect for Summerset social norms. I believe the beast was dead for some time before the strap was cut free, fitting for a beast so majestic. — Gabrielle Benele
ON-icon-fragment-Silverthread Stitching.png Silverthread Stitching Banished Cells II final boss Galen Thread made of silver is not all that uncommon, especially in the workshops of magic-minded craftsfolk. But the skill with which this has been spun is breathtaking. It reminds me of the jewelry worn by Sapiarchs, actually. — Gabriele Benele I agree. Consider too, the broader implications of silverweaving in Aldmeri culture. The purity, the disconnect from broad Tamriel norms. Whatever this stitching was intended for, clearly it was highly valued by the crafter. — Ugron gro-Thumog Disconnect from broad Tamriel norms, you say. Regardless of the editorializing, it's beautiful. If the stories are true and Syrabane did teach my people this art, it's a gift we can never repay him for. I wish we still had the knack. — Amalien
