Antiquity Leads are items that are used to Scry for Antiquities. They can be found in a wide variety of ways and places throughout the world. You don't need to be an Antiquarian to find them, but you do to use them. Some Leads may require you to have done other tasks before you can obtain them – exploring a zone, completing a quest, or digging up other Antiquities.

  • Leads expire 30 days after you obtain them, however you can obtain them again.
  • Leads are account-wide. This means if you discover a Lead on one character, another character can scry and excavate it.
  • Leads have fixed locations, such as drops from certain enemies, containers or merchants.

Lead sourcing is often related to the Antiquity it will lead to. For example, Leads to Antiquities regarding Glenumbra's history will be found in Glenumbra. For information on where to find Leads sorted by Zone, see: Antiquities by Zone.

Difficulty Levels[edit]

Leads come in various difficulties, and it determines how challenging the Scrying and Excavation mini-games are. There are five levels, but it should be noted that the difficulty of the Lead doesn't always accurately relate to the quality of the antiquity. For example, an intermediate-difficulty Lead can uncover an epic quality item.

Simple[edit]

Simple Leads can be scryed by default and consist of mainly treasures, motifs chapters and antique maps. Every zone has one simple-difficulty Lead that is given to you for free.

Intermediate[edit]

Intermediate Leads consist of mainly treasures, motifs chapters, cosmetics, and mount components. You need to be at least level 3 in Scrying, and have the Antiquarian Insight II passive to scry for Antiquities of this difficulty.

Advanced[edit]

Advanced Leads consist of mainly treasures, motifs chapters, mount components and epic-quality furnishings. You need to be at least level 5 in Scrying, and have the Antiquarian Insight III passive to scry for Antiquities of this difficulty.

Master[edit]

Master Leads consist of mainly Mythic item and mount components, and some legendary-quality furnishings. You need to be at least level 7 in Scrying, and have the Antiquarian Insight IV passive to scry for Antiquities of this difficulty.

Ultimate[edit]

Ultimate Leads consists mostly of a selected range of legendary-quality furnishings. You need to be at least level 10 in Scrying, and have the Antiquarian Insight V passive to scry for Antiquities of this difficulty.

It should be noted that Ultimate Leads appear as the same shade of gold as found on Master-difficulty Leads, making it difficult to distinguish between the two. The following is a list of all Ultimate difficulty Leads:

Mythic Items[edit]

Mythic Items are broken up into 5 fragments, each requiring a Master difficulty Lead to find. These Leads may require owning additional DLCs or Chapters to discover or excavate, in addition to the piece of content the Mythic item was released alongside.

For example, the Ring of the Pale Order was released with the Markarth DLC, but it also requires access to the Orsinium DLC in order to find all fragment Leads. In addition, the Greymoor chapter is also required to Scry these Leads via the Scrying skill line. The table below shows the DLCs required to complete a particular Mythic item.

Alongside having access to the appropriate content, 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. The dig site for fragments are usually found in the same zone as where the Lead drops, save for a few cases where it must be excavated in a different zone.

Furniture[edit]

There are three main categories of furnishings that can be unearthed.

Antiquity Furnishings[edit]

  • Antiquity Furnishings — Unique furnishings that are always epic or legendary in quality. For a full list of leads, see the main page.

Composite Furnishings[edit]

These are essentially Antiquity Furnishings, but are broken up into several fragments of varying quality. All fragments must be excavated in order to obtain the item.

Antique Maps[edit]

  • Antique Maps — Placeable maps that are always fine in quality. For a full list of leads, see the main page.

Crafting Motifs[edit]

The leads for all Ancestral motifs only have a chance to drop from treasure chests that are marked on Treasure Maps. Regular chests do not have a chance to contain these leads.

Mounts and Pets[edit]

Several Leads are required to construct the antiquity mount and pet, which can be found in specific Dwemer Ruins. See the respective pages for exact locations:
