Achievement encountersEdit

I Like M'aiqEdit

  • M'aiq the Liar: M'aiq can be found standing in the wilderness and will speak unique dialogue when interacted with.

Give to the PoorEdit

  • Beggar: A region-specific NPC approaches and asks the Vestige for 5 gold. If given, it will award a small amount of experience points.

LightbringerEdit

  • Unlit fire: 2–3 region-specific NPCs can be found arguing over an unlit fire. Lighting it will gain a small amount of experience and earn the "Firelight" status effect, increasing Stamina by 5% for 30 minutes. The NPCs will thank the Vestige.

Non-Achievement encountersEdit

  • Dark Fissure: A small tear to Coldharbour appears over the ground, and a wave of random Daedra or undead appear. After dispatching the first wave, a mini-boss will appear with another random regular enemy. Killing them gains experience and closes the Fissure.

  • Bandit picking lock: A random bandit can be found attempting to pick a locked chest. After killing them, a second bandit may appear and attack as well.
