Overview

During the Epic quest chain, players will have the opportunity to view the story from a different point of view than their character's. This inlcudes flash-backs and events taking place in locations inaccessible to normal player characters. Once completed, these quests can be replayed by reading the Chronicle of Events at The Spire of Meeting in Rivendell.

  • Click on the Chronicle of Events to open the list of available Session Plays. They may be repeated once per day.
  • The tome lists Epic Session Play quests which you have previously completed, and each tale allows you to re-run one of these sessions. If you have not completed any of these quests, then the tome will not interact with you.
  • Click on the Chronicle you wish to replay.
  • After accepting the quest, click on the Chronicle again to begin.
  • After completing the instance, click on the Chronicle again to end.
