As more motifs are being discovered in Tamriel, it becomes harder to remember where to find all this motif lore. This guide attempts to make it easier for the new or frugal crafter to locate motif chapters without being at the mercy of motif availability on guild traders.
Motif lore can be often found home and business containers (Nightstand, Desk, Wardrobe, Dresser, Cabinet, Cupboard, Trunk / Chests, Backpacks, and Urn / Vases). Furthermore, the location of these containers often determines the types of motifs that can be found. Unfortunately, many of these containers in towns will require some caution as they are considered property of the locals and if your theft is witnessed, you will negatively affect your status with the guards.
Tinythinker started a post on the official forums where to find all of the items on Kari’s Hit List which is introduced in the Thieves’ Guild DLC.
Robert J. “Jairone” Mann has produced an excellent guide that he has shared on google docs that includes screenshots and detailed descriptions.
Tip: They can be completed along with the Thieves' Guild daily quest (Quest Board).
Finding all of the items on this list will reward the player with achievement points which will also increase your rank in the Thieves’ Guild. Complete the achievements by placing the items in the display area of the Thieves’ Den in Abah’s Landing.
Tip: These items are stolen items and if you are captured or killed by a guard, you will lose any of these items in your inventory. Keep some Counterfeit Pardon Edicts on hand for the more trickier items.
Below you will find a summary that will lead you to the general locations (eg. building) but doesn’t take away all of the exploration fun trying locate each of the items within each structure.

The following is a summary of the crafting related changes included in this #ESOTU patch for the PC and Mac.
Crafting & Economy
- Fixed an issue where some chapters of the Outlaw Motif, found in Shark’s Tooth Grotto, were not dropping as often as intended.
- Monsters in scaled zones such as Cyrodiil, Wrothgar, and Hew’s Bane will no longer drop a mixture of Rubedo Leather and Shadowhide if you have Rank 10 of the Tailoring passive. Instead, they will exclusively drop Rubedo Leather.
After some exploring, I have located the three new crafted set locations in Hew’s Bane. My crafted set tome has been updated accordingly.
Someone posted a link to a simple Hew’s Bane Skyshard map on Reddit. You may find it useful.
