The storyline for Abyssea spans all 3 Abyssea battle area add-ons Vision of Abyssea, Scars of Abyssea and Heroes of Abyssea.

Strictly speaking, there are no missions in all 3 Abyssea battle area add-ons. However, there is a series of quests that span all 3 add-ons. As players progress through the 9 zone boss quests from all 3 add-on expansions, the main story unlocks itself. However, there is no order in which a player has to complete the quests.

As with expansion missions, many of the quests in the series start automatically upon completion of the previous one. A player must be at least level 30 with one of the 3 Abyssea add-ons purchased in order to start the first quest.
