Blackwood Tapestry

The Blackwood Tapestry is an enormous Antiquity Furnishing that's available via the Antiquities system. The furnishing is split into 15 fragments, found throughout the Blackwood.

Leads for each fragment drop from Soiled Tapestry Threads, which can be found throughout the central and southern areas of Blackwood. Although the leads themselves are blue in quality, they are Master level difficulty meaning you need to be at least level 7 in Scrying, and have the Antiquarian Insight IV passive to scry.

After collecting, scrying, and excavating all 15 leads, you are automatically awarded the Blackwood Tapestry and it is added to your "Collections" menu.


This antiquity furnishing can be obtained via the Antiquities system. First, you must obtain the following Antiquity leads:

Icon Lead Location Source(s) Difficulty Codex
ON-icon-fragment-Soiled Tapestry Scrap.png Lead: Soiled Tapestry Scrap Blackwood Master Verita Numida
Difficult to make out what this tapestry scrap might be depicting, what with all this worked-in dirt. We might be able to identify it eventually; it will just take some long and careful cleaning.
ON-icon-fragment-Frayed Tapestry Scrap.png Lead: Frayed Tapestry Scrap Blackwood Master Reginus Buca
This weaving pattern is fairly distinctive. You often see this sort of thing in Trans-Niben fabrics. The technique may have originated in Elsweyr, but the nobility in Leyawiin made it famous.
ON-icon-fragment-Stained Tapestry Scrap.png Lead: Stained Tapestry Scrap Blackwood
  • Stonewastes on floor of a destroyed shack, accessible by jumping across from the broken walkway (map)
Master Ugron gro-Thumog
I have no idea what's smeared all over this tapestry, but I'm pretty sure it's not blood. Ambergris, maybe? Shame. The weaving on this is remarkable.
ON-icon-fragment-Torn Tapestry Scrap.png Lead: Torn Tapestry Scrap Blackwood Master Reginus Buca
Based on the imagery, I'd say this was torn from a larger tapestry. The sort that might take a decade to weave. Alas, fabrics rarely withstand the ravages of time.
ON-icon-fragment-Tattered Tapestry Scrap.png Lead: Tattered Tapestry Scrap Blackwood
  • East of Leyawiin, over the bridge, turn southeast, about 1/3 the distance to the Ayleid Well, under a rock outcropping, next to a skeleton and a backpack. (map)
Master Ugron gro-Thumog
Looks like a dog got hold of this. I'm not joking. Look at the stretching here and the crusting at the edges. Whoever gave this to their mutt had no idea how valuable it is.
ON-icon-fragment-Threadbare Tapestry Scrap.png Lead: Threadbare Tapestry Scrap Blackwood
  • South of Glenbridge up the hill slightly off the east side of the road, next to a tent. (map)
Master Amalien
Seems that someone might have used this scrap as a quilt patch. Well-worn, that's for certain. Treat this one with care or it's liable to come apart.
ON-icon-fragment-Ragged Tapestry Scrap.png Lead: Ragged Tapestry Scrap Blackwood Master Gabrielle Benele
This looks like a woman's face? Difficult to tell with all the fraying. Whoever she is, she's a subject of adoration. Mara or Dibella most likely.
ON-icon-fragment-Ripped Tapestry Scrap.png Lead: Ripped Tapestry Scrap Blackwood Master Amalien
There's a compass on this scrap, I'd bet my chair on it! Odd to see map in tapestry form. A mapestry as it were! Ugron, I know you're groaning, but the world deserves more hilarious portmanteaus!
ON-icon-fragment-Grimy Tapestry Scrap.png Lead: Grimy Tapestry Scrap Blackwood Master Ugron gro-Thumog
Someone used this to wipe down surfaces--polishing boots or something like that. Damn shame. What imagery I can make out is quite beautiful.
ON-icon-fragment-Dusty Tapestry Scrap.png Lead: Dusty Tapestry Scrap Blackwood Master Gabrielle Benele
Doesn't look like this tapestry scrap has seen the light of day in well over a century. Someone likely kept it squirreled away, hoping to reunite it with other fragments. Hopefully, we can finish the work they left undone.
ON-icon-fragment-Filthy Tapestry Scrap.png Lead: Filthy Tapestry Scrap Blackwood Master Amalien
Is it just me, or does this look like someone used it as a napkin? Maybe even a babe's bib. You'd be surprised how many priceless relics make it onto peasants' kitchen tables.
ON-icon-fragment-Holey Tapestry Scrap.png Lead: Holey Tapestry Scrap Blackwood
  • In the Duchess's Private Study hideout north of Gideon, halfway between the Gideon Wayshrine and Salvitto Estate, accessed via trap door; look for it inside the broken alcove. (map)
Master Gabrielle Benele
This might be the face of Zenithar! Alas, it's been pierced about a dozen times. Seems some bow-toting iconoclast used it as target practice. Joke's on them. Desecrating a rendering of the Divines is seven years bad luck!
ON-icon-fragment-Stitched Tapestry Scrap.png Lead: Stitched Tapestry Scrap Blackwood Master Verita Numida
Someone tried to fix this scrap of tapestry with needle and thread. Unfortunately, they botched the job. This needlework is sloppy, but with patience we can remove it.
ON-icon-fragment-Moth-Eaten Tapestry Scrap.png Lead: Moth-Eaten Tapestry Scrap Blackwood
  • Southwest of White Stallion Inn, staying to the north side of the brook, inside a cave against the cliff walls. (map)
Master Verita Numida
Ugh, what a mess. Looks like a whole family of moths ate their fill of this tapestry scrap. We might be able to fix it. It will take a lot of patience and creativity, though.
ON-icon-fragment-Ratty Tapestry Scrap.png Lead: Ratty Tapestry Scrap Blackwood Master Reginus Buca
Just look at the blues in this tapestry scrap. I've never seen such rich azure pigments. Acquiring vibrant colors like this would cost a small fortune. Some wealthy noble must have really loved their weaving.

Release Notes

Update 30 (Blackwood - June 2021)

  • Released



  • Although the locations where the leads are found glow like Museum pieces, there is no achievement associated with the Blackwood Tapestry, and each piece can only be found once per account. However, the glow will persist around an empty space for any subsequent characters that go to those locations.
