The world of The Elder Scrolls Online is huge.

About how long in real life does it take to walk across the continent, east-to-west?

    Interesting question. Onething that's kinda unclear: do you mean in a straight line or while also passing all zones? – Jutschge Mar 29 '17 at 9:19

    You won't even be able to cross it. I don't know if it has changed since then, but the last time I played it, I tried to go to the other side of the continent but at some point I was blocked because not my race/territory. So in the end you don't really have much to explore in that game. – Ise Mar 29 '17 at 11:19

  • @Jutschge In as straight a line as possible. :-) – jvriesem Mar 29 '17 at 13:26

Lucky for you somebody did exactly this! User u/ansem119 on Reddit trekked across the continent in ESO. According to him it took an hour and thirteen minutes to cross the world East to West, not including loading times.

He writes:

So I don't know exactly why I wanted to do it, I thought it would be interesting to know how big the map was in terms of walking across it. The rules I had was not using sprint and I avoided straying too far away from paths so I encountered less mobs.

Here are all the paths I used: https://imgur.com/gallery/uIuF6

I didn't include loading times and a bit of Cyrodiil was estimated because the beginning and end bits were blocked off for me. I also wasn't 100% sure where the north morrowind gate lined up with so i just decided to walked half way through the rift and then i just stopped the timer there and continued at the northern morrowind gate when i got there.

Other than that the rest was pretty accurate. The total time added up to around 1 hour 13 minutes and 55 seconds of walking from the dock in East Deshaan to the dock in West Glenumbra.
