There are two temples per alliance, each housing a scroll of the same name as the temple:
- For the Aldmeri Dominion: The Temple of Altadoon and the Temple of Mnem.
- For the Daggerfall Covenant: The Temple of Alma Ruma and the Temple of Ni-Mohk.
- For the Ebonheart Pact: The Temple of Chim and the Temple of Ghartok.
Each temple if protected from enemy players by a gate of the same name. To access the temple, players must capture the associated gate-locking fortification. If the gate-locking fortification is re-captured, the gate closes.
As of Update 7, the scrolls can only be picked up if its gate is unlocked, to prevent exploiting players from using abilities to jump over closed gates and capture the scrolls, and bypassing the sieging intended to be used.
