MAINLAND CITIES AND RESOURCE ZONES:


Written by Timewaster.
Depending on your starting zone the exact order here could vary, or you could hop to a city of choice and always begin there for the same order. Note however that Khitai is a bit of an exception as travel is more painful (and the cost is high for a low level). The few quests that carry over to there are best left until later,

In any area, talk first to your new mentor to continue your destiny chain. You will spawn right nearby them.
Complete [Traveling Home] at your new trainer ( [Sharak] / [Rhiderch] / [Scyra] / [Yehonala] )
Get quest [Blood and Sweat] at [Sharak] / [Rhiderch] / [Scyra] / [Yehonala]

Also, if subbed, during this phase find a trainer NPC ([Zahra] in Khemi, [Minerva] in Tarantia), [Cowal] in Conarch) for multi-spec

CITY QUESTS ~lvl 22-25

You can actually gain a couple levels just by running errands and talking to NPC in the cities, which if you are new will let you learn the areas and layouts. Exact order may change depending on starting city and for entry points (Tarantia and Khemi). Example order starts at native character entrance points but dependencies assume Khemi was done first for no reason beyond having recorded them in this order (although both Stygians and Khitans both starting there).

The city order will only alter a few quests which cross zones. If doing all the cities at once, Tarantia is arguably the “best” way since [The Scholar’s Pages] goes to all 3 kingdoms, though the quest is possibly not worth the hassle it brings)

Khitai does not have a normal starting city, and dumps you straight into the gateway zone, but you can travel to these other cities just the same (probably best after running to the wall for the quest [The Shadow of the Wall] )

NOTE: If you have been to all 3 main cities and done the rounds, you will have 3 quests each in the resource zones (Lacheish, Poitain, and Purple Lotus). You can do those now for the XP, or wait some (quests involve running a cross the zones and can be boring), until hey may overlap more with your travel. If you choose to complete them now (if not subbed they are also taking up quest space) it is probably best to start hitting them once you are done in with any current threads in the cities themselves. For a bit more clarity I am noting the last of the city quests first, out of actual order with resource zones.

You will have some quests left that were given in the cities but which take you into the starter zones. These should give you a bit of direction going forward.

Starter zones ~lvl 24/25 - ~lvl40 : KHITAI


Technically I prefer to do Khitai last among the starter zone (if running through all of them), but this is getting posted first for a few reason:

  • It is simpler/more monolithic than the others (smaller gaps, no elite quests, no crossover)
  • Some people claim to prefer early leveling here exclusively, skipping other starter zones
  • I have it done :slight_smile:

[Gateway to Khitai]

If traveling here from Khemi and avoiding payment by escort duty, you may get a quest en route.
If this is your native zone, I recommend using the caravan to Khemi (near the wall) and completing the city quests for a couple of levels and then coming back (quests from other zones noted here as if you traveled)

(You can just grab [The Shadow of the Wall] here and after head off immediately, gathering the above quests after you return, but unless you are carefully reading the text they can be done all at once.)

    If you actually read the NPC text for all these [The Shadow of the Wall] may have failed or be close… If so talk to [Jingbo] for [The Shadow of the Wall] to reset.
    Head eastward
