Inlaid with stolen oricalch and fashioned with very specific runewards, this belt is an answer to the dervish and daring of the Sword-Singers. If you cannot evade the blade, stand and fight.

Lefthander's Aegis Belt is a Mythic medium belt with the Well-fitted trait. It can be obtained through the Antiquities system. It was released as part of the High Isle Chapter.


1 item: Roll Dodge no longer evades attack and instead grants a damage shield that absorbs up to 20990 damage over 1 second. This damage shield is unaffected by Battle Spirit.


  • Five fragments are required to create the item, all of which require a master-quality Lead in order to scry, and are classed as master difficulty to excavate.
  • You are required to be at least level 7 in Scrying, and have the Antiquarian Insight IV passive in order to scry Master difficulty leads.
  • Fragment Leads are largely found in the same zone as where the fragment is excavated, save for a few cases where it may be found in different zone.

Asp-Leather Strap Lesser Sea Adders in Summerset High Isle Well, this is a vicious looking accessory! Clearly some sort of snake skin, but I don't recognize the pattern. Looks a bit like those sep adders you find around Hew's Bane. Much bigger though! Maybe it's some giant, slithery cousin. — Amalien I'm no naturalist, but I'd guess this came from a Yath Asp. We're lucky they never made it to Tamriel. The Crowns say they're huge, have a temper like Malooc, and used to serve Lefthanded Elves as pets--and also maybe garments by the looks of it. — Amalien According to Yokudan histories, the boundary between pet and livestock was a hazy line for the Lefthanders. Yath Asp leather was stout stuff--resistant to cuts and gouges. It was the perfect material for a stylish war girdle. — Amalien
Gilded Disk Mornard Falls World Boss in the High Isle, on the Amenos island (High Isle) High Isle A golden disk? Without the other pieces, it's difficult to tell what it belonged to. Some kind of jewelry, I should think, but it's far too large for a crown or necklace. The inlays appear vaguely Yokudan, but different. Lefthander, perhaps? — Verita Numida I've seen this shape before. The configuration lends itself to defensive enchantments. You typically find it embossed on shields, but given size, maybe this belonged to a belt? That setting in the center must have supported a massive jewel! — Verita Numida It's from a belt, all right--a Lefthander shield-girdle. According to Zirad's Guide to Yokuda, Lefthanded Elves worked hard to protect the abdomen because that was the throne of the soul. Also, no one likes being disemboweled. — Verita Numida
Grand Hattu Onyx Jewelry Crafting Writs High Isle I've only seen two other onyx gems like this--both in Na-Totambu tombs in Hammerfell. The sheer size is astounding, but its origins are far more exciting. To my knowledge, the only place onyxes like this can be found is Yokuda! — Reginus Buca I met a Redguard in Sentinel who swears that the peak-mines of Hattu Mountain still hold a fortune in jewels like this. Just a matter of getting at them. Hunding Zealots make it hard to get anything done there. Real shame. — Reginus Buca According to my studies, most of the onyx mines in pre-Ra Gada Yokuda were seized from the Lefthanded Elves as spoils of war. The Redguards' ancestors never really developed the knack for this sort of gemcutting. I think this is a Lefthander relic. — Reginus Buca
Singersteel Clasp Treasure chests in Alik'r Desert High Isle What a curious relic. It's a belt clasp, certainly, but the metal and configuration are quite unique. Do you see how it cinches from the left? This may have belonged to a Lefthander noble from ancient Yokuda! — Reginus Buca This metal looks like an alloy--nine parts steel and one part orichalcum. Redguards call it Singersteel. According to the myths, the Yokudans used orichalc to drive the Elves out. Maybe the Lefthanders got their hands on a bit of orichalcum as well? — Reginus Buca There's a story about The HoonDing Gong. Apparently, Diagna crashed his fist against it and swords fell from the walls of the Orichalc Tower like needles from a dry pine! I wouldn't tell a Crown that Lefthanders made belts from sacred metal! — Reginus Buca
Totambu Chrysocollas Abyssal Geyser reward chest (Summerset) High Isle These unique gems were considered a sign of royalty in Yokuda since before the rise of the Na-Totambu. It has something to do with the golden inclusions, I believe. The Yokudan's enemies, the Lefthanded Elves, embedded them in many of their weapons. — Verita Numida I find the entire Sinistral Mer narrative unconvincing. Lefthanded Elves? What does that even mean? In any case, yes, the Chrysocollas were not just a sign of royalty, but also a symbol of invincibility in battle. Oft enchanted, or so I've read. — Verita Numida Chrysocollas are strongly associated with defense, but in the Yoku tongue, the term defense is just a different tense of offense. They placed far less emphasis on defense as a concept that than the Lefthanders did. This is definitely Elven. — Verita Numida
