The Gold Coast is the western-most region of Cyrodiil. It lies north of the Abecean Sea and stretches from Valenwood to the south to Hammerfell to the north.

The Gold Coast contains a series of irregular hills in the east, on the border of the West Weald. It begins a generally downward slope to the west and flattens out as it approaches the sea. The Gold Coast is lightly dotted with evergreen trees. The vegetation is sparser than the rainy southern coast of Cyrodiil, and the waving grasses are gold rather than green.

The Brena and the Strid Rivers, respectively, mark the northern and southern borders of the region. The Gold Road winds through the south of the region, around the base of Kvatch's plateau, and then crests a hill overlooking Anvil.

Flora and faunaEdit

Look for alchemical ingredients around the scattered gray igneous rocks of the region. Among them are Aloe Vera, Arrowroot, Bergamot, Ginseng, Goldenrod, Lady's Mantle, Lily of the Valley, Mandrake, Milk Thistle, St. Jahn's Wort, and the distinctive orange Tiger Lily. Look for Nirnroot along the coastal areas and around the region's scattered lakes. A number of scattered farms also grow various crops.

Deer can be found inland along with Mountain Lions and Wolves. Along the shores of the Abecean Sea, Mudcrabs can be found.

LocationsEdit

Anvil is a central port city for Cyrodiil. Located on the far west coast, Anvil is a bustling coastal town. A number of ships are docked at Anvil's port, including The Sea Tub Clarabella and The Serpent's Wake. City critic Alessia Ottus pans Anvil, saying "at first glance, [Anvil] is very pretty, but when you examine it closely, turns out to be quite unpleasant."[1]

Kvatch sits on top of a high plateau overlooking all of the Gold Coast. Strangley, Kvatch is the only city Ottus has not written about.

Lord Drad's Estate, Cyrodiil's lone experiment in Ogre slave labor, operated by Lord and Lady Drad, is a sprawling farm north of Anvil and just west of Bleak Mine. Two inns can be found in the Gold Coast, both along the Gold Road. The westernmost is the Brina Cross Inn, while Gottshaw Inn can be found farther east, closer to Skingrad. The lovely Nord Maeva the Buxom can be found in a farm on the hill overlooking Anvil. Another unremarkable farm can be found due east of Anvil.

Anvil Lighthouse

The pirate plug-in The Thieves Den can be found in a cave below Castle Anvil.
