Built by the Ayleids as a focus of mystic power at the heart of Tamriel, the White-Gold Tower has long been a symbol of the Empires of Cyrodiil that followed. Now it is in danger of being absorbed into Coldharbour—and could draw Tamriel in after it!
White-Gold Tower

The White-Gold Tower is a group dungeon found in the center of the Imperial City.

Traditionally the seat of the Empire, the Tower has been overrun with Daedra and is being pulled into Coldharbour by Molag Bal. Empress Regent Clivia Tharn is attempting to retake the structure. White-Gold Tower has both a Normal and a Veteran mode.

The dungeon can be entered from the Irrigation Tunnels, the Lambent Passage, and the Harena Hypogeum.

Backstory Description[edit]

Will you be successful, or succumb to the forces of Molag Bal?

  • Second pull: three zombies, one skeletal foot soldiers, one skeletal assassin, one Dremora Morikyn, one Xivkyn Flagellant.
  • Third pull: four zombies, one skeletal assassin, one Xivkyn Lacerator and one Xivkyn Bulwark.
  • There are Daedra on the stairs west of the third pull: A Xivkyn Flagellant, a Dremora Morikyn, a Dremora Ferylkyn, and a Zombie.
  • Above the second pull (on the ledge east of it; north of the Iron-Swathed Glutton), there's a group of Daedra watching a brawl between a Dremora Sunderer and a Skeletal Assassin. A Dremora Morikyn, a Dremora Ferylkyn, and a Xivkyn Flagellant are watching, laughing and cheering while the two square up. A heavy sack can be found beside a headstone on this ledge.

Throne Room[edit]

Throne Room

The Adjudicator resides here. When you enter the throne room, you'll see her execute three Imperial Prisoners.

A chest and a heavy sack can spawn by the Ruby Throne, behind the boss.

Imperial Guard Quarters[edit]

The first pull consists of one Xivkyn Flagellant, one Dremora Morikyn, three Skeletal Foot Soldiers. There's a snake near the door to the next pull. A chest can spawn in the nook located across from the door to the next room. In the next room, you'll encounter two Planemeld Rifts.

The third pull is just out in the hallway and to the left. It consists of three Skeletal Foot Soldiers, a Dremora Morikyn, a Xivkyn Bulwark,a Xivkyn Lacerator, and a Skeletal Assassin. A passive snake slithers among their boots, and there's a fiendroth ahead and to the right. The door at the end of this hallway brings you to the Lower Elder Scrolls Library.

Lower Elder Scroll Library[edit]

Lower Elder Scroll Library

When you pass through the door, you'll end up in a hallway cluttered with rubble, almost to a claustrophobic extent. The first group of enemies in this hallway consists of four Banekin, two Skeletal Assassins, a Skeletal Foot Soldier, and a Dremora Morikyn. A Crematorial Guard blocks the way through the door at the end of the hall.

The door brings you to the next section of the library, where you'll fight the Imperial Dragonguard. Sister Terran reveals the Elder Scroll, and Clivia Tharn grabs it, causing the ceiling to explode. She then commands her Dragonguard to kill everyone present as she flees through the side door.
