Prologue Quests

Jump to navigation Jump to search

Each race has its own sequence of Epic - Prologue quests, which are part of the Epic Quest line. They follow on directly from each race's Epic - Intro quests and they eventually lead into the Book 1 quests.

Most, if not all, of these prologue quests can be done by any race.

The Before the Shadow - Prologue quests are not race specific and offer an alternative starting experience.
