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.

A Crumpled Note can be found next to a corpse in the Imperial Regent's Quarters, near the pinnacle. The dungeon can be entered from the Irrigation Tunnels, the Lambent Passage, and the Harena Hypogeum.
