Reviving in the Imperial City

I have tried unsuccessfully to find an answer, so let me ask: When you are killed in the Imperial city how do you revive if all zones are controlled by other factions? Supposedly you can revive in the sewers, but I see no way to bring up the sewer map. Clicking on the sewer entrance doesn't bring up the sewer map, so I have no way to choose a revive point. Unless I am missing something, when all zones are controlled by other factions, you cant revive within the Imperial City. Any help would be appreciated.

    To answer my own question, supposedly the revive option will take you to the sewers if all the zones are controlled. Unfortunately this didn't work for me, so either I am bugged or my faction took a zone and I didn't notice. Either way the Imperial City can be frustratingly confusing, even for a veteran player. I had to let my revive function time out and automatically revive, which is a huge waste of time.

    See this sticky guide: https://forums.elderscrollsonline.com/en/discussion/598365/whitestrakes-mayhem-101-feb-2022/p1 ....if you haven't already.

    And yes , it can be "frustrating" , but it's also PVP and a "war" ...so yeah. ;)

    There are 2 options after player death in IC. The one let's you choose a district to spawn in, which appears to be what you're picking. The other is to release, which will respawn you at a district if your alliance owns one or in the sewer base.

    I should have posted this sooner, but in my case, the problem was a bug. My default option for reviving simply didn't work. I had to remap the option to a different key and then it worked perfectly. Hopefully this might helps someone else with the same issue.

    P.S. Oddly enough this only happened in the Imperial City - reviving in Cyrodil has always worked fine for me, which is why I found it so confusing. I don't know why the default option wouldn't work until I remapped it.

    if your on PC, even i you remap the key, you should be able to always click on the options at the bottom of the screen, so it will work even if it is unmapped entirely

    for IC specifically, the "release" option is basically the same thing as the "respawn at wayshrine" one

    this will send you to the nearest controlled district, or back to the sewer base if nothing on the surface is controlled

    (on PC i think the default key for release is R)
