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. These quests also include NPC phasing which requires the player to complete this prologue before they can begin Book 1 as noted below.
