A Thieves Trove

Thieves Troves are small wooden containers marked with the Thieves Guild symbol that can be found across Tamriel. They have a distinctive purple-blue glow and often contain valuable items. The troves cannot be opened unless you have the ability to learn the Finders Keepers passive in the Thieves GuildCrown Store skill tree, which requires ownership of the Thieves Guild DLC (see notes).


A Thieves Trove

Thieves Troves often contain a leveled amount of gold, some lockpicks and a rare item. All the items are marked as stolen, and will have to be laundered at a fence before they can be traded. Troves are also marked as owned, and thus players should ensure they are completely hidden before stealing from one.

The rare items found in troves include:

As of Update 12, you have better chances of getting more useful items from Thieves Troves as your rank in the Thieves Guild increases.

Clockwork City[edit]


  • The Finders Keepers skill's role is to allow you to continue to open Thieves Troves if your ESO Plus membership ends and you lose access to the DLC. Having ESO Plus active or owning the DLC outright is all you need otherwise as the skill is given to you upon opening your first trove (or starting the DLC's questline).
  • Troves spawn in fixed locations in the world. If one is missing it may have been recently looted and will respawn over time.
  • Troves can also be found in Coldharbour, even though the justice system is not enabled there.
