Yeah... "need" and "fast"

Scyring is not comfortable but I bet the ZOs devs made their mind how to keep you "longer" to the game and did this on purpose.
Else all would be blinking and good to see on your own.

Beside there is no/no good scrying API given I'd give you the advice to try it on your own:

Feel free to ask questions if you are stuck.

The scrying and excavating interfaces are not available to addons. There are no API functions that return information about the tiles on the scrying board.

This is a shame. I was just about to post a request for an addon that colors the shapes to make it easier to see them. I will add this as a feature request to ESO instead.

From what I've seen so far, colored tiles is the number one request for the scrying game, but ZOS did try many things while making it, so no guarantee they will change anything about it:

Maybe we can get them to add an api for the tile colors/textures and make addons to change it to our own tastes.

Once you unlock a few of the passives for scrying it's incredibly easy and fast. Never takes me more than 30s - 1m even for gold leads.

What would be good is an addon that shows the likely locations of certain leads. similar to lore books maybe?

To achieve this ppl would need to collect the data and send it in to an addon dev who would be able to show it on the maps based on this data. Same like collecting quest info.
Give it some time, I bet someone will make something if the ingame given passive skills of the antiquities are not enough (and afaik see they are if you level them).

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...S1IiACJKEZgAw# -> has the location of nearly all leads, though there's still a few unfound ones. That said, it's not an actual map location (like from API) so it would still need more work
