The Fighters Guild is a joinable faction in The Elder Scrolls Online.

Like the Mages Guild, the Fighters Guild has not taken sides in the ongoing conflict in Cyrodiil, and can be joined regardless of a player's Alliance.[1]

Reputation with the Fighters Guild is increased by destroying Dark Anchors and killing Daedra. They will also offer rewards such as a set of achievements, special cosmetic gear, and more for destroying Dark Anchors.[2] Killing Daedra or Undead also increases Fighters Guild ranks.[3] Abilities in the Fighters Guild skill line are effective against Daedra and the undead, as well as players that have become vampires or werewolves.[4]

The Fighters Guild has headquarters in the city of Wayrest in High Rock, the city of Elden Root in Valenwood and the city of Mournhold in Morrowind.[5]


During the events of The Elder Scrolls Online, the Fighters Guild was lead by Jofnir Iceblade.[6] After his death, the leadership falls to an Argonian named Sees-All-Colors.[6] Under the new leadership, the Guild has been contracted by an influential patron to focus its forces entirely against the forces of Molag Bal and the destruction of the Dark Anchors, arousing much controversy among the members.

Generally, the Guildmaster leads the entire Fighters Guild. Each province in Tamriel where the guild makes its presence meanwhile is headed by a Province General who handles business in the province in the Guildmaster's stead. The Province Generals all hold council as to how the guild should be run at a provincial level. Under the Province Generals, Provosts lead each guild hall located in the towns and cities the guild operates in, while Hall Stewards of each Guild Hall make sure each hall and its members are looked after.
