Xivkyn (Imperial Daedric) Style

The Xivkyn, or Imperial Daedric, style is a new style of armor and weapons in Elder Scrolls Online. The Xivkyn style will be added with the release of the Imperial City which is on August 31.

Racial Motif: Xivkyn (Imperial Daedric)

In order to obtain the Xivkyn Racial Motif, which is needed to learn the Xivkyn style, you can either collect the 14 Xivkyn Style Chapters or find the entire Racial Motif: Xivkyn which is quite rare. You can also purchase these items from other players.

The Style Chapters can sometimes be found in certain well-warded chests in Imperial City. These chests require items that drop from many Daedra and their servants to open.

You may also be able to purchase the Xivkyn Motif on the Crown Store like the others.

This was posted to the forums to help explain the new Motif.

Xivkyn Motif Chapters can be found in the Imperial City Trophy Vaults. They can be sold and traded with other players. There is also a low chance for the full Xivkyn Motif Book to drop from the bosses in the Imperial City itself but not the two new Group Dungeons.

You have a chance of getting Charcoal of Remorse (Xivkyn) when you deconstruct any Xivkyn style equipment. You can also purchase Charcoal of Remorse from Tel Var merchants in your Alliance’s base in the Imperial Sewers. Charcoal of Remorse can be traded and sold to other players.

Xivkyn (Imperial Daedric) Style Gear

Once you have read the Xivkyn Motif and learned the Xivkyn style you can craft items in this style at any crafting station.

To make Xivkyn style gear you will need a Charcoal of Remorse. This is the style material for the Imperial Daedric style and can be found through deconstruction of Xivkyn items or you can purchase them with Tel Var Stones.

    If you buy a Xivkyn Motif in the Crown Store, can you give it to someone in-game as a gift? Or are Crown Store items bound to the account?

      I believe that they are bound to your account.

        You can get the entire book without having the dlc. The books are sometimes for sale in the guild store from other high level guild members.

    I bought it from the store but yet can’t see anything in the crafting stations is it cuz of my low lvl?

    If you don’t purchase in crown store the mirror, you’ll need to be level 6-9 in all wood, metal and clothing, it varies between 6-9 put your passives there, you’ll be able to craft at any level but seeing be able to use them until your that level (if your level 20 and it’s level 40 you have to wait until your level 40) unless you dye them yourself, you can gift crafts armor and weapons to other players, dying them binds them to you, but you can “outgrow” your own armor and hand it down to another character with that level. Hope that helps 🙂 I tend to buy my motifs though I’ve found a few rares now and then, castles and banks are good spots for me

    Do you have to have all the chapters can learn yhe style or can you learn each bit?

    • ESO Academy

      You can learn each bit and make those items. So you could learn just Legs and make them.
