The Elder Scrolls Online: Aldmeri Dominion Grinding Guide Level 1-50

Updated on May 28, 2014

The ESO players guide to Awesomeness!

This is for the horse mounting, quest loving, monster killing people out there. Making this page for the convenience of those who wish to make the best out of their gameplay for ESO. Making this plain and simple hope this helps you guys, the guide is derived from many grinding guides you will see online and revised in my opinion for the best results, enjoy!

(Pictures are mostly taken from the official website of The Elder scrolls Online)


"When word reached the High Elves of Summerset that the Imperial City had fallen under the control of the human supporters of Molag Bal, the Aldmeri Dominion was formed."
"When word reached the High Elves of Summerset that the Imperial City had fallen under the control of the human supporters of Molag Bal, the Aldmeri Dominion was formed."

Time to achieve this varies but most likely it would take you just 24-48 hours of gameplay if done properly.

Things you should keep in mind doing this process:
- You gain exp bonus when grouped in pair
- We only gain decent exp from mobs that are 5 levels above or below you
- AOE skills are best for grinding (To be able to tag all mobs)
- When grinding zone is crowded might as well group up with them (chances are you would sometimes miss tagging some mobs if your out grinding with multiple players)

Auridion: Level 1-20

(Just skip the tutorial if you have done it once so from here you start at level 3)

You should be staying at the zones only until this certain level:
Zone 1: Level 8
Zone 2: level 10
Zone 3: Level 20

Greenshade: Level 20-35

You should be staying at the zone only until this certain level:
Zone 1: Level 28-31

At the north of Greenshade there would be this place called Hectahame (Black circle indicated in the map). There's a few 3 packs (always a caster and two melee) there, some flesh monsters, and a bridge with 10 non-aggressive skeletons under it. This would be a better option for you, you could stay here up until level 35-37 if you wish.

Reapers March: Level 34-44

You should be staying at the zones only until this certain level:
Zone 1: Level 40
Zone 2: Level 44

Another better option if you ask me is to head to the black circle indicated in the map once you reach Level 35-37, there you would see a lot of mobs packed in 2-3. Head to the peak of the mountain and you could rotate on killing mobs there with some other players.

Cold harbor: Level 44-50 (Finally)

(Getting here, you might have to finish your main quest line OR you could simply group up with someone who has already been there and teleport to him/her at Cold Harbor.)

There's a portal to the Cliffs of Failure in the northeast that teleports you there, Zone 2 is to enter Zone 1 then taking the second bridge leading up on the right.


Once you are on this area of the page it is most likely that you are on the way to achieving "Veteran Rank" and for that I would like to Congratulate you in advance for the hard work grinding all the way to Cold Harbor. More power to the Dominion! See you guys in Tamriel! Be Blessed!
