The Shadow Queen’s Cowl Leads

Where to find all Leads for the Shadow Queen’s Cowl Mythic Set in ESO! The Shadow Queen’s Cowl Light Head Armor piece, is one of the Mythic Items that are available in ESO with the system of Antiquities. Mythic Items are special one-piece sets that offer unique effects to their wearer. In order to discover Mythic Items you must have unlocked the Scrying and Excavation skill-lines. To unlock them you must own the Greymoor Chapter and complete the introductory quest for the Antiquities system. This will allow you to Scry for Leads that will lead you to excavation sites where you can find items or fragments of them. Mythic items are usually separated in fragments and you have to find all of them in order to get the complete item.

The higher the quality of an item you can find the higher the difficulty of scrying and excavating for it. Leads for Mythic Items have a Master Difficulty. Most of the time a Lead will guide you to a dig site in the area you have found it but in some cases Leads will send you somewhere else. A good example of this is Leads found in the Imperial City.

You can get Leads even if you do not own the Greymoor Chapter and have not unlocked the two skill-lines but you cannot use them without the Antiquities features, Scrying and Excavation. Leads disappear after thirty days and you will have to farm them again in order to find the item. This Shadow Queen’s Cowl Leads Guide will help you to find all the Leads necessary to create the item.
