I’d originally assumed that the two continents in Storm Legion were designed to give some variety to leveling multiple characters. However in order to plug a serious level gap between story quests and my actual level, I’ve had to give in and start on the other continent. My level at the start of the session was 54.5, the lowest story quest I had was 57.
The storyline for Pelladane is actually better than I expected, it’s pretty engaging – though as a tech-loving defiant I feel slightly unwelcome by all the religious trappings in the main base (RP motives aside, it’s nice to be reminded of the core faction lore in this new area). I’ve done a few instant adventures in Pelladane so some of the carnage (kill X creatures) quests were already done. But there were still enough story quests and incidental quests to ding me 55. So I’ll be carrying on through Pelladane and the zone after at the least before I return to Brevane.
Now that I’ve accepted that I won’t get a whole continent untouched I can hopefully just level a lot faster as I won’t need to find every single carnage quest.
