Semi Protection

Due to the sensitive nature of this template and the fact that it is used on a large number of pages, it has been semi-protected to prevent site-wide damage by vandal bots.
Editors: In order to minimize the impact on our servers, please use sandboxes to make and test changes to widely used templates before deployment.
For more information, please see this article's talk page.


This template displays an informative table about a given Elder Scrolls Online quest and should be applied at the top of all Online quests pages. The description is made available for other templates, such as Quest Link. The appropriate Trail is also added to the top of the page. This template was derived from {{Quest Header}}.


Please note that currently, some parameters are lower-case, others are mixed-case. Any that don't follow the pattern of Xxxx will allow for all possible case combinations for backwards compatibility and ease of use. The parameters below use the "official" case used by the template. It may be desirable in future to convert these all to lower-case for consistency with most other templates.

Next optional If a series quest, the quest that is presented to the player after completion.

Solo optional Some quests cannot be done in a group, and are solo only. If so, set Solo=Yes.
