What is the order of play for beginning of activation effects?

There are several beginning of activation effects and I can't see an order of play listed for them. Specifically, does gaining Held Esper from LOS to your Bonded Cypher happen before taking damage from many of the beginning of activation effects, such as activating in an AOE? You can spend held esper to power secondary Armor [X] defenses, so this affects the game.

From the rule book (both 1.0 and 1.5) -

Apply the
effects of the AoE immediately then continue the unit’s
activation as normal


So you would apply the effects of the AOE's before applying anything else to the unit.

Thanks. I don't know how I missed that sentence in the rulebook.

This certainly answers the specific case that came up in the game, but not the general case of all the beginning of activation effects. I am not sure if there are other conflicts. But it might be nice to add this to the 1.5 order of play outline at the back of the rules.
