    Default Content Timeline (2017)

    The following is an updated content timeline sorted by story order. Please correct any mistakes!
    (Forum won't let me upload document files.)

    G = Guardian only
    D = Defiant only

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

    There used to be story-based world events, but these have been mostly retired in favor of seasonal events and permanent story updates.
    I do not count Intrepid or returned instances, as this is not new story, but an upscaled/autoscaled older story.

    Sliver = 10 player raid set in alternate world
    Expert = dungeon that is exclusively endgame (others have multiple modes)

    There is:
    Skirmish in the Sands (Shimmersand)
    Skirmish in the Moor (Stillmoor)
    Skirmish in the Peak (IPP)

    Which are Guardian vs Defiant.

    There's also the faction-based "An Eye for an Eye" zone event in Stillmoor, where the two factions compete to see who can power up their uber-avatar first.

    EPIC/CULT SAGAS:

    Classic/Planes of Telara:
    -Life/Aelfwar Saga, Guardian Only, Lv 50, Tier 1
    -Death/Endless Saga, Defiant Only Lv 50, Tier 1
    -There are also some multi-zone questlines for each faction.
    -Water/Abyssal Saga, faction determines perspective, Lv 50, Tier 2
    -Wanton Maw Saga, Lv 50, Tier 3
    -Air Saga retroactively starts here, multi-stage

    Storm Legion:
    -Air Saga, Lv -60, Tier 3

    Nightmare Tide:
    -Nightmare Saga, Lv 65, Tier 3
    -There are also multi-zone questlines, especially one for Nightmare Rifts

    Prophecy of Ahnket:
    -N/A

    ~~~

    -Life Saga tells the story of stopping the cult of Aelfwar, extremist elves led by Prince Hylas trying to use the power of the life dragon Greenscale, and the threat of an explosion of life onto Telara.
    -Death Saga tells the story of stopping the cult of the Endless Court, which worship the death dragon Regulos, and the corruption of death that has plagued Telara.
    -Water Saga occurs after the events of opening and raiding the dwarven delve of Hammerknell, and defeating the cult of Abyssal, folk driven insane by the water dragon Akylios, which is also defeated. In the aftermath, you find not all is resolved...
    -Wanton Maw Saga tells the story of the fire cult Wanton, and earth cult Golden Maw, joining forces and becoming a threat of unleashing two dragons, the fire dragon Maelforge and earth dragon Laethys, onto Telara. In the meantime, the factions of Guardians and Defiant find they may have more in common in their struggles than they'd presume.

    -Air Saga tells the story of the cult of the Storm Legion, first being a problem, but then revealing the greater designs of the air dragon Crucia, as she escapes and pulls the Ascended for a bigger war on Telara, and beyond.

    -Nightmare Saga tells the story of the creature 'Arak' and his nightmarish powers and army threatening to pull Telara into madness and destruction, but some of the biggest nightmares are both within and far away in the cosmos.
