  • You’ll find this Skyshard next to the east wall of the ‘Mages Guild House’ which is in the Southeastern section of the zone. You start in SE haven and the Skyshard in up to the NORTHWEST.
  • After leaving Auridon, you’ll arrive in Haven and encounter quite a few hostiles. You will have to get the “Unsafe Haven” quest and start progressing through it in order to be able to defeat them – but you can get the shard without it of you want.

2: The shrine of the south leads north:

  • The Shrine of the South Leads North Skyshard is slightly North of the Southpoint Wayshrine which is in the Southeastern section of Grahtwood. It’s pretty well hidden by very tall rocks…it’s just off the main road.
