Map locations[edit | edit source]
For a list of locations for each type, see its main article. You are able to fast travel back and forth to the following locations once you first discover them.
Ayleid Ruins[edit | edit source]
Ayleid Ruins are ancient structures built by an ancient race of elves known as the Ayleids. Besides the usual enemies that inhabit the ruin, these ruins usually contain Ayleid casks and reliquaries, several traps, Welkynd Stones, and occasionally some rare Varla Stones, secret passages, and special magical towers known as Dark Welkynd Stones that shoot out balls of magicka as you pass by.
Camps[edit | edit source]
Caves[edit | edit source]
Caves often wind underground and may have multiple levels. Most simply contain a few barrels and chests, a variety of creatures, and traps if occupied by goblins or NPCs. Caves usually are abundant in Wisp Stalks and Cairn Bolete.
Daedric Shrines[edit | edit source]
Daedric Shrines are scattered across Tamriel and are a means of communication with Daedric Princes. They offer quests, but some require you to be above a certain level and/or to give an offering. The rewards from these quests are powerful items and weapons.
Forts[edit | edit source]
Forts are ancient defensive structures, built most likely during the late First Era to protect the land from foreigners such as Akaviri invaders (a likely explanation, since the quest "Lifting the Vale" implies an Akaviri attack on such a fort long ago).
Mines[edit | edit source]
Landmarks[edit | edit source]
Landmarks are usually geographic points of interest, such as a mountain peaks, gardens, cemeteries, or bridges, and most do not have a fast travel location to them and must be reached on foot or horseback.
Oblivion Gates[edit | edit source]
Oblivion Gates are the gates to the realm of Oblivion, which is Mehrunes Dagon's realm. Once the Amulet of Kings is delivered to Jauffre and Kvatch is visited during the main quest, many Oblivion Gates will open around Cyrodiil.
Settlements[edit | edit source]
Settlements can be places such as farms and smaller towns, without the full services of a large city, such as inns, armorers or weapon shops.
Taverns/Stables[edit | edit source]
Taverns are convenient places to rest in the wilderness from one's adventures, there are side quests involved with many of the taverns.
Stables are often located outside major cities and are a place to leave your horse as you shop the city.
- Note that both use the same map travel icon.
Other locations[edit | edit source]
These locations have no map marker and must be found by direction or exploration.
Doomstones[edit | edit source]
There are twenty-one doomstones scattered across Cyrodiil. Thirteen of these monoliths are named after the birthsigns, while the other eight are believed to be named after long forgotten cults.
Rune Stones[edit | edit source]
Rune Stones are slightly different than doomstones in that they offer Bound Items to those that use them. They do not offer powers gained by the doomstones but their conjured weaponry can be valuable in a fight.
Wayshrines[edit | edit source]
Wayshrines are shrines to the Nine Divines in the wilderness. Making pilgrimages to these shrines bestows a blessing on the character, and allows the player to receive the same blessing from city chapels. Pilgrimages to all nine wayshrines gives the ultimate blessing of the nine, the Pilgrim's Grace. Wayshrines are not marked on the world map, and so they cannot be fast traveled to.
