Experience Points Antiquities

To reach the maximum level in the Antiquities system in ESO you will have to gain a total of 700 points for the Scrying and Excavation skill-line. They level up in a similar speed and achievements also count towards experience points.

LevelExperience Points

Leads Experience Gain

Depending on the quality of the lead that you work on, you will gain a different amount of experience points. At first, you will only be able to use green leads, once you reach level 3 you can also work on blue leads and so on.

You can get green, blue, purple, gold leads at any level. However, you will need a specific level to actually be able to use the leads! So for example, you can get gold leads even if you are at level 1 or you don’t have the skill-line at all, but you can only use them (scry, excavate) when you are level 7.

Lead QualityExperience Points GainedUnlocked at Level
Green – “Simple”11
Blue – “Intermediate”33
Purple – “Advanced”55
Gold – “Master”107
Red – “Ultimate”1010

Time To Grind!

Now that the basics are covered, how do we get to level 10 as fast as possible in the Antiquities System?

Level 1-3 Grind

By far the fastest way to get from level 1 to level 5 is in Artaeum. The zone is very small, that means you don’t have to run very far to get to the next digging site, that way you can repeat this process a lot faster, whereas on bigger maps you will have to travel further.

  • Once you obtained the scrying and excavation skill-line like shown in the other Antiquities basics guide, you will get a green lead for each zone, Artaeum included.
  • The basic green lead that you get in each zone can be repeated as many times as you want, making it very easy to pump your level up to 3.

Now all you have to do is grind with the green lead in Artaeum (or any other place) and repeat the process till you hit level 3. The green lead can be used as many times as you want, therefore you can always instantly repeat the process and gain experience!

Level 3-5 Grind

From level 3 to 5 we also stay in Artaeum for the fastest leveling process. With level 3 you will be able to use blue leads. Once you finish the basic green lead it will always include a blue lead as a reward. And there we already have our next hamster wheel.

  • Complete the green lead, obtain a blue lead from the reward, complete the blue lead. That way you gain 4 experience points (1 from green, 3 from blue).
  • The blue lead will disappear, time to complete the green lead again to obtain the blue lead through the reward.
  • Repeat till you hit level 5.

Image: Here you can see once you complete the green lead you will always obtain a blue lead.

Antiquities Grind Guide Scrying & Excavation Leveling for ESO (Elder Scrolls Online) (3)

Level 5-7 Grind

Here is where it gets a bit more interesting, the concept is the same, but now we are going through ALL the zones in The Elder Scrolls Online. We will once again start with Artaeum.

  • Complete the green lead, obtain a blue lead from the reward, complete the blue lead, obtain a purple lead from the reward, complete the purple lead. That way you gain 9 experience points (1 from green, 3 from blue, 5 from purple).
  • Both the blue lead and purple lead will disappear once you have completed them.

Now we have the problem that we can’t repeat this process, because the purple lead won’t come back! Only the green lead and the blue lead can be farmed like this.

Solution: Repeat the process in ALL ZONES. So we can do the green lead, blue lead, purple lead and move onto the next zone. That is possible because remember, we get a green lead in each zone as a “freebie”.

That should get you to level 7 for both scrying and excavation. Now you can technically already use gold leads, to get the different parts needed for a Mythic Item.

Level 7-10

To make the last jump to level 10 we will already focus on getting gold leads (or any other lead). That way you can already be productive while you are grinding it up.

The best ways to farm leads:
