The Circus of Cheerful Slaughter is a location that appears in The Elder Scrolls Online. The location is set up in the style of a play created by Sheogorath. It is set in three areas: Heartholdhelm, Skyroot Hearth, and Daggerwaymore, which are parody towns of the Ebonheart Pact, Aldmeri Dominion, and Daggerfall Covenant, respectfully.



Set up to look like a camp in a destroyed town, it is filled with members of the Ebonheart Pact.

Skyroot HearthEdit

Similar to an Aldmeri town, it has small boulders and Altmer houses. It is filled with members of the Aldmeri Dominion.


Resembling a Breton town, it has tiled roads and is filled with members of the Daggerfall Covenant.
