    The mid level maps are quieter as lvl 80 players are mostly in the lvl 80 maps, unless an event is happening in the map.

    Dungeons are fin if your gear is up to date for the level, but you’ll have trouble finding a PUG if you aren’t 80.

    The mid level zones are less populated because you don’t actually need to leave the starter zones to level. You get less than you could, but you will still get decent XP. People might also just follow the personal story and just hit those zones.

    Players who have been around have so many boosters and level up items they don’t need to level niece characters.

    I don't have a great grasp on the leveling in GW. What's the benefit to staying in the starter zones for leveling? Got my dude to 17 last night and moved to one of the 15-25 zones. Is there a reason to hit other 1-15 zones first?

    XP gain from lower level zones scales to your current level, and while your character scales down a level 15 scaled to 5 is much stronger than a level 5. So doing 1-15 content at 17 will be faster than doing 15-25 content.

    That said, I leveled my first character from 1-80 by staying in zones appropriate to my level 90% of the time and it was good. Higher level zones are definitely more interesting than lower level. What I would recommend is that if you find yourself falling behind the zone you're in, either go to a different low-level zone or do events until you hit the right level. Slamming your head into higher level content (even 1-3 levels higher) will frustrate you AND slow down your leveling.

    The flexibility of always being able to go to lower level zones is nice if you run into a zone you don't like.

    Like brisbane wildlands? The asura 15-25 zone. God I hate it, always did it last when getting 100% completion on a character even with mounts.

  • FeldornFeldorn Mediocre Registered User regular
    @exis there is no benefit, it would just be easy and familiar.

    I explored a lot because I love the gw2 world.

    The story dungeons are designed to be done from level 30 onwards (each has a different level requirement), but won't be massively populated

    You may want to try the dragon bash festival in the norn starting city, there are ports from an npc marked with a dragon icon in each city, or just outside. The arena bit scales you up to level 80 too. Dragon coffers could be an ok way to collect some starting gold for bags etc.

    Thanks for the pointers, folks. I did actually stumble across the Dragon Bash festival last night. Fought a stream of bosses which was kinda fun.

    I am pretty keen to do more group activities so it's a bit of a bummer of dungeon's aren't populated. I do really enjoy the world events where there are a whole lot of people involved so that's pretty cool, but I'm not sure whether that's the kind of thing you can search out or whether it's best to just quest around and do that stuff when you come across it.

    Oh man, no searching required. The event train has no brakes and all passengers are welcome.

    Short story is that if you- I lied -search for something like guild wars event timer you'll find a site that displays which events are currently active around the game world. As there is a set schedule, you can follow the zerg from place to place or join in for your favorites.

    This sounds awesome. I'll give that a go tonight, thanks.

    I'm just happy that doing the dragon bash dailies nets enough jorbreakers to nab a set of season 4 currency each week. No need to grind the maps for the skyscale. That and getting a charged crystal out of the home instance quartz node tonight.

    So.. I finally killed Qadim 1.0! This means I can now buy guild hall decorations which make portals! https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Djinn_Teleportation_Device

    Wonder if it has range to spawn --> harvesting nodes? :) Any other ideas?

    I'm also wonder if if it's time for a change of guild hall. I'm away for a few weeks, but will broach the subject again when I get back - thoughts?

    Windswept Haven is pretty neat, but it's definitely a hall that's built for taking advantage of the skybox. There isn't a whole lot to do compared to Gilded Hollow or Lost Precipice.

  • naengwennaengwen Registered User regular
    By the way, before I forget, try to hop into GW2 and do a world boss in the next day or two. A community event is going on and a single kill will get you a boatload of mats, banners and loot :D

    After a brief dip into FF14 and WoW to check out Shadowbringers and Mechagon, I've settled back home in Tyria. I just don't have time to compete in those other worlds right now, and even after a few years, simply logging in for 30 minutes to do some gathering is really pleasant stress relief after a hard day.

    Grats!

    It's still amazing that I've played the game since release and have never seen a precursor drop =p.

    I haven't, either, though I tell myself maybe I have and I just salvaged it by accident.

    Ive never had one drop for me either. Don't worry, I have like 6000 hours. :( Ive had wondrous people gift me one, and won one from a giveaway, but the final one I had to purchase myself.

    Stray - I have really wondered if I had done that. I used to be VERY salvage happy.
