Forge potent new gear with Jewelry Crafting and bolster your power with handmade rings and necklaces. Make sure you’re always wearing your best—you’ll need every advantage you can get.

Exclusive to Summerset Isles Chapter owners
Jewelry crafting is exclusive for Summerset Isles Chapter owners. What does that mean, to be able to craft jewelry you need to get the Summerset Isles Chapter. You will still be able to get crafted jewelry from the vendor, but you can for example not transmute dropped gear.
Psijic Order -- Isle of Artaeum
Few organizations in Tamriel are as secretive and mysterious as the Psijic Order. Now they’ve returned to Nirn after centuries of self-imposed exile to investigate a crisis that threatens to unravel the future of Tamriel. Join this ancient society of mages, learn their ways, and gain incredible new abilities that allow you to bend time itself!
350 years ago, this island headquarters of the Psijic Order vanished from Tamriel. For the first time in The Elder Scrolls series, you’ll be able to travel to the Isle of Artaeum, visit Ritemaster Iachesis and Ceporah Tower, and begin to unravel the secrets of both the Psijic Order and the history of the Mages Guild.
Psijic Order Skill-line
Should you join the order, you’ll have access to an all-new Skill Line that includes new Active Abilities, new Passive Abilities, and a powerful Ultimate. Below are just a few of the powers that you’ll weild as a member of the Psijic Order.
Discover the ancient homeland of the High Elves. Encounter shining cities, vibrant forests, tropical lagoons, coral caves, mysterious ruins, and more.
Summerset’s Capital and seat of power for Proxy Queen Alwinarwe. Visitors and locals alike will be mesmerized by Alinor’s shining towers as they tour the city’s many landmarks, including the Golden Gryphon Inn, the Oleanderr Coast Winery, and the bustling Riverside Market.
Boldly built atop the peak of Eton Nir, Cloudrest is the home of the Welkynar Gryphon Knights and their Aerie. But be warned: due to an unforeseen catastrophe, the Divine Prosecution has been forced to evacuate the city and barricade the main gate. If you wish to enter you may need to find an alternative path.
When you arrive in Summerset, you’ll find yourself in the city of Shimmerene, also known as the City of Lights. But the town is in turmoil, and before you begin your adventures or make yourself at home, it would be wise to familiarize yourself with the Queen’s decree regarding visitors.
lso known to the High Elves as Crystal-Like-Law, this sacred monument opens only to the Sapiarchs’ tower sentinels and is both a place of research and a mausoleum for the honored dead. At its apex, it holds a powerful crystal called Transparent Law, though its purpose is a mystery to all but the highest-ranking Sapiarchs.
Found on the northwestern coast of Summerset, the city of Lillandril houses both the College of Sapiarchs and the local chapter of the Mages Guild, two groups known for their growing rivalry. Razum-dar recommends you steer clear of them and instead put your feet up at the local watering-hole, the Shrewd Brew Tavern.
If you’re looking for entertainment and excitement, the township of Rellenthil can be found in the heart of Summerset. There, you can enjoy artistic performances by the renowned House of Reveries or relax at the local Bathhouse.
Abyssal Geyser Events
We still do not have any official announcement what those Abyssal Geysir Events are. But most people suspect it will be similar to the Dolmen Events in Cyrodiil.
