This list excludes:

Notes[edit]

  • Though the four books listed above are sorted in chronological order, from when each book starts, the suggested reading order is in reverse:
  • A character that appears in Agents and Reagents chronologically appears in The Improved Emperor's Guide after they appear in the former
  • Plot elements that occur in The Improved Emperor's Guide chronologically occur before events in Kyne's Challenge
  • As Gathering Force only mentions characters that have appeared in the previous three books, it is recommended to read this book last

Notes[edit]

  • Although all of ESO's content (excluding the books, which should be read immediately before playing their respective Chapter) can be played in any order as the player sees fit, and in-game dialogue occasionally changes depending on which order of events the player goes through to accommodate for the otherwise anachronistic play order, due to the abnormal nature of ESO's perception of time and each of the above medias' respective connections to each other, playing in the order they were released (as presented) makes the most sense chronologically
