Anitiquity Leads

Hello my fellow adventurers!

There is so little time and so many leads to pursue for great rewards in ESO’s antiquity system. There are 280+ leads that require you to travel throughout Tamriel to complete. Leads can be found almost anywhere, from nearly any activity like opening a chest, defeating a boss or even purchased from a general merchant. I’ve created a catalogue to help you see the final rewards and be able to organize the information as you see fit. For beginner antiquitiarians, I highly advise you to start with green quality leads, which represents the lowest difficulty level, and work your way up.

More information on how the antiquity system works can be found here.

Below is the antiquity leads catalogue. Type what you are looking for in the search bar or filter your search by difficulty, type, zone, etc. Click on the card to reveal further details on where the lead is located and how to get it.

 

Credit goes out the community of adventurers for finding this information and a list created by Inklings

Below are the leads that give you items in tabular form:
