Quests are the main form of leveling in the Elder Scrolls Online. Unlike other MMOs, ESO features detailed questing with engaging backstories and motivations for your character as well as the NPCs. The voice acting also contributes to immersion, delivering a questing experience akin to that of the solo Elder Scrolls Games.


Questing by Area


Main Quest

The Main Quest of Elder Scrolls Online follows a level tiered progression. After exiting the prologue area, your character will roam in its designated faction and you will be called back to the hub at specific levels to initiate the next phase of the Main Quest. All of these events are instanced and solo, but some have the assistance of NPCs.
