When the Dark Elves freed their Argonian slaves, some of the Lizard-Folk assumed control of the Dunmeri ventures where they had been laboring in bondage.  Not all these ventures have been successful.

Onkobra Kwama Mines are located in central Shadowfen.  Nearest wayshrine is Percolating Mire  which is a short distance to the east.  It is a small circular delve.  Overall, a decent place to farm provisioning mats and  scrib jelly.

ESOTU Delve: Nchuleft

For the long-lost Dwarves, Nchuleft–don’t confuse it with Nchuleftingth!–seems to have been some sort of heavy manufacturing facility. Though millennia have passed, its defenses remain active… and dangerous. 

Nchuleft delve is located in Northern  Vvardenfell  Nearest wayshrine is Tel Mora which is a short distance to the east.  There multiple locations within and the cavernous room has a structure with multiple levels.  Not recommended for farming crafting items.

ESOTU Delve: Pulk

In the Grazelands, bandits are uncommon near the coast where there are plenty of Telvanni guards. To the west, towardthe slopes of Red Mountain, the region is more dangerous.

Pulk delve is  located in northeastern Vvardenfell.  Nearest wayshrine is Tel Mora which is a short distance to the north.  It is fairly large two level circular delve with many provisioning containers. I didn’t see any any lore items while I was there and the delve was popular with other adventures during my visit so I only heard rumours of a chest or two.

ESOTU Delve: Broken Tusk

None know today what lost cult of Daedra worshipers built the original shrine in these caverns, nor what they called it. But the lair the Argonians call Broken Tusk exudes an almost palpable sense of the evil that’s been done there over the ages.

Broken Tusk delve is  located in eastern Shadownfen at the northern tip of a river valley.  Nearest wayshrine is Forsaken Hamlet  which is a short distance to the southwest.  It is small circular delve with little promise of crafting materials except for Poison Oils. However, the lore on the numerous bookshelves may be of interest of lower level players looking for some free skill line ranks.

ESOTU Delve: Faldar’s Tooth

Sacked over a century ago by raiding Orcs from Yashnag’s Kingdom, the fort known as Faldar’s Tooth has been left to decay ever since by the Jarls of Riften, who have had no need, or no funds, to rebuild it.

Faldar’s Tooth  delve is  located in central area of The Rift.  Nearest wayshrine is Honrich Tower  which is a short distance to the southwest.  It is one of the larger delves and consists of two “loops”.  Overall, a decent  place to find crafting materials, especially provisioning items.

ESOTU Delve: Rubble Butte

This underground site is part of Nilata, one of the most extensive Ayleid ruin complexes in Hammerfell. It was occupied by the Wild Elves for at least a thousand years, and its welkynd stones will probably continue to glow for at least another thousand..

ESOTU Delve: Chi-Moska Ruins

Argonian scholars are uncertain whether the Chid-Moska xanmeer should be considered part of the larger Xal Ithix complex, or if it is a separate site built by an even more ancient tribe of Lizard-Folk.

Chid-Moska Ruins are located in southwestern Shadowfen.  Nearest wayshrine is Loriasel Wayshrine.  It is a small looping delve and contains mostly provisioning containers.  Overall, a below-average place to farm crafting materials as you would have to relog to reset the containers.

ESOTU Delve: Gandranen Ruins

Tales say that Gandranen was built by an Ayleid sorcerer, a worshiper of Hermaeus Mora who so loved books that she created a series of magical halls that would attact books from across Tamriel, no matter where–or when–they were published.
