The Daedric War storyline is the second main story arc of Elder Scrolls Online, following on from the Five Companions Main Quest. Unlike the Main Quest, it is not a single in-game questline. Instead, it is an overarching story which spans multiple content updates in the form of DLC, Chapters, and free quests. It involves a plot between Clavicus Vile, Nocturnal, and Mephala as they each vie to gain power over the other Princes. To this end, Clavicus Vile sends his servant Barbas to steal the Dunmer Tribune Vivec's power, Nocturnal launches an invasion of Sotha Sil's Clockwork City, and the triad of Princes sets its sights on Summerset and the Crystal Tower, using the Court of Bedlam to achieve the ultimate goal of unlimited power and remaking Nirn in their image.

The storyline was first hinted at by Varen Aquilarios at the end of the Orsinium DLC, then by one of the visions of the Sweetroll Killer at the end of the Dark Brotherhood DLC, and again by Tsatva-Lan in the Cradle of Shadows as part of the Shadows of the Hist DLC.

The storyline can be segmented according to Chapter. During The Gates of Adamant, the Vvardenfell portal refers to the Divine Conundrum storyline, while the portal to Summerset refers to The Queen's Decree storyline. These names are taken from the first quest of each zone.

Quest Order[edit]

Due to the multiple content releases involved in the Daedric War story, there are no prerequisites for completing these quests and they can be done in any order. However, they do follow a chronological order as listed here.
