    Default Content Timeline

    Updated to 3.6 (April 2016) with expected 3.7 material. As this is a content timeline of STORY, this is going in the LORE section; it will not be including Intrepid anything, unless it helps story progression (like Intrepid IA: Hammerknell).
    Will not differentiate between Normal and Expert mode dungeons (or the few Master modes, at that). Just do the Experts when you're done with a game version, when you're directed to it by a questline, or whenever you feel like it.


    G = Guardian only
    D = Defiant only
    Events = Misc. themed zone events, invasions, rifts, instant adventures etc

    Bolded = Open Zones
    Italicized = Instances (Chronicles, Slivers, Raids, etc)
    Underlined = Epic Quests

    Note: Aelfwar/Life Saga, Endless/Death Saga, Abyssal/Water Saga, Wanton Maw/Fire Saga, Storm Queen/Air Saga, Lord Arak/Nightmare Saga; and quests may weave around other content, so advance as best you can in a saga before moving on, entering dungeons and zones

    Thank you

    It is at least complete enough to provide a 90%+ basis of the story. Maybe there's odds and ends, but I don't think there's much.

    I also like dividing it into acts:

    Act 1 - Planes of Telara (2011, Mathosia, Tier 1)
    Act 2 - Waves of Madness (2011, Tier 2)
    Act 3 - From the Embers (2011-2012, Ember Isle, Tier 3)

    Act 4 - Storm Legion (2012-2013, Brevane, Dusken, Tier 1)
    Act 5 - Beyond Infinity (2013, Dendrome, Tier 2)
    Act 6 - Binding of Blood (2013-2014, Tier 3)

    Act 7 - Nightmare Tide (2014-2015, Plane of Water, Tier 1)
    Act 8* - Into the Wilds (2015-2016, Planetouched Wilds, Tier 3)

    Act 9? - ?


    *I do not consider Tier 2 to have any story in NT, given the Hammerknell recycle. One might consider the Nightmare Saga to count, but I don't, and I just fit it in with either Tier 1 or 3, probably more as a Tier 3 lead-in to PTW zone.


    If you use this guide, you can check off each 'act' on your characters as you go along. Enjoy!

    Comet of Ahnket is not a sliver. It's in fact the only ten man to not be a sliver.

    It's the result of the previous interventions by Ascended in slivers, and the consequence of foiling Fate's attempt to change history in Bindings of Blood back in Storm Legion.

    Great, thanks! Time to start just calling these 10-mans then, haha.
