Who are you calling "Imperfect"?

The Imperfect are two giant mechanical constructs that were built by Sotha Sil in his Clockwork City and stationed as guards outside of his laboratory. Only one of the Imperfect is found working. It is capable of close combat and powerful shock damage magic, and its Rebuild ability allows it to regenerate health and magicka. It drops a unique potion, the Elixir of the Imperfect, although it may drink it in combat.

Imperfect in combat


  • Depending on the player's difficulty settings, it can be challenging to kill Imperfect before it drinks its unique Elixir of the Imperfect. The simplest solution to this is to lower the difficulty slider for this fight, minimizing the window of time that Imperfect can drink the elixir. For players who don't want to alter the difficulty settings and have the Bloodmoon expansion, the Ebony Arrows of Slaying are an option to remove all of Imperfect's health in a single hit, regardless of difficulty.
  • They also appear in ESO: Clockwork City. There it is revealed that Imperfects are a variant of the mechanical constructs known as Factotums.
