The Skyshiels are a major mountain range in eastern Rathain, separating Eltair Bay from Daon Ramon Barrens. There is one major trade road crossing through the mountains -- by way of Darkling and Eastwall. There are also two Paravian roads entering the mountains from Jaelot in the south. The one through Baiyen Gap connects to Ithamon while the one through the Pass of Sards connects to Daenfal.

The Skyshiel Mountains are home to Skelseng's Gate and Rockfell Peak, as well as the source of the Severnir River.

  • In Traitor's Knot, a shipment of Alliance gold is enspelled to look like Skyshiels granite.
