Skyrim - How is the Quest Log Sorted?

* * * * *

Best Answer LikeASir189, October 14, 2017 - 06:37 PM

The finished quest log is sorted by how you finish the quests themselves. The example you gave (Unbound) is a bit of a bad example because no matter what you will always complete that quest first. It is the gateway to the game and will always be completed before anything else in the game. Let's use With Friends Like These, The Pale Lady and Mourning Never Comes. When you complete the first Dark Brotherhood quest, it will show up as completed. Then if you complete The Pale Lady, it will show up after the aforementioned quest, even though Mourning Never Comes is the next quest for TDBH.

Dumb question regarding the quest log in Skyrim. How is it sorted? I think that unfinished quests are sorted first by the questline (i.e. main, Dark Brotherhood, Dawnguard, etc) but how are completed quests sorted? Are completed quests sorted by when you started them, when you finished them, or some other method. I have tried personally testing it in game, reading on the elder scrolls wiki and UESP. Any and all help is appreciated.

After some extensive research, I believe I answered my own question. Completed quests appear to be listed in the order you started them, so regardless of which quests you finish first. quests that you start first will always be listed first (i.e. unbound will always appear at the bottom and Before the Storm will always be right above it). Can anyone else confirm this?
