High Isle and Amenos is a zone in The Elder Scrolls Online: High Isle. It consists of two inhabited islands: High Isle, the largest island of the Systres Archipelago, and Amenos, a prison jungle colony in the northeast. The south coast city of Gonfalon Bay on High Isle acts as the major metropolitan center for the two islands.[1]


"The largest island in the Systres Archipelago, High Isle serves as the center of politics and commerce for the island chain, predominantly from the port city of Gonfalon Bay and the Dufort Shiyards."

High Isle and Amenos, as with the rest of the archipelago, was first settled by the Druids of Galen in 1E 330 escaping the hostile Direnni Hegemony that regarded them as a threat due to their advocacy of druidic governance over High Rock, as well as the Alessian Order who regarded them as "Meriphilic heretics."[2] Pieron Desant of the Gleaners of Aurbis travelled to High Isle for a heist during the Interregnum, and brought back a valuable haul to Fargrave.[3]

During the time of the All Flags Navy circa 1E 2200, High Isle was used as a staging area for the assault against Thras, with All Flags Islet in the island's center used as the Navy's centralized point of command and control. In 2E 582, the islands are occupied by both druidic and chivalric Bretons, with the druids, particularly of the Stonelore Circle, living in central wilderness, and the House Bretons occupying various coastal settlements under the governance of House Dufort. The island of Amenos, unlike High Isle, is a largely uninhabited jungle used by the House Bretons as a penal colony.[1]

Main article: Quests (Online)

High Isle and Amenos features a series of zone story quests and unrelated side quests. The zone story quests tie into the Legacy of the Bretons overarching storyline and continues on to Galen and Y'ffelon, but it is not necessary to complete the story quests for zones prior to those in High Isle and Amenos. Side quests are non-sequential and can be completed in any order, except where one carries on from another, and repeatable quests can be completed multiple times: weekly for arenas and trials and daily for all others.
