The Wayshrines are large, magical dome-like structures created by the Snow Elves during the Merethic Era. They can only be found in the Forgotten Vale, and must be traversed in order to reach Inner Sanctum, during the quest Touching the Sky in The Elder Scrolls V: Dawnguard.
Wayshrine of IlluminationEditThe Wayshrine of Illumination can be found in Darkfall Passage, a sub location of Darkfall Cave. It's located on a high cliff at the back of the large cavern. Progress down into the cavern and past the waterfall. Head up a stone path until the Wayshire is reached.
Wayshrine of SightEditThe Wayshrine of sight can be found in the initial forested area of the Forgotten Vale.
Head down to the floor of the valley fighting off any Vale Sabre Cats, and past some ancient ruins. Keep heading north-west and follow the decrepit path. Just before the second arch, take a right north-east through the trees to reach the wayshrine.
Prelate Athring will be tending to the shrine and once the ewer is collected it grants access back to the Wayshrine of Illumination.
Wayshrine of LearningEditThe Wayshrine of Learning can be found in the second half of the Forgotten Vale. At the partially frozen river, head south along the bank until the wayshrine is reached.
Prelate Celegriath will be tending to the shrine and once the ewer is collected it grants access to the previous wayshrines.
Wayshrine of ResolutionEditThe Wayshrine of Resolution can be also found in the second half of the Forgotten Vale.
Head along the frozen river bank and keep traveling north-west until a steep stepped path is visible to the north. Climb the stepped northern path to the top. This Wayshrine should be visible across the river to the west. Continue along the mountain path and across the natural rock bridge over the river to reach the Wayshrine.
Prelate Nirilor will be tending to the shrine and once the ewer is collected it grants access to the previous wayshrines.
Wayshrine of RadianceEditThe Wayshrine of Radiance is located quite some distance from the previous ones. Its can only be reached by traversing through the Glacial Crevice. The crevice exits into Falmer camp entrenched in another ravine.
Head east up the walkways defeating the plethora of Falmer. Head back out and drop down to the floor of the ravine and keep heading south into a tunnel. Traverse through the tunnel past the boulder trap and up through to the Wayshrine of Radiance.
Prelate Edhelbor will be tending to the shrine and once the ewer is collected it grants access to the previous wayshrines.
