    I’ve almost given up trying to explain to people that there’s no need to “complete” an area before you move on or to reach the nominal lower level limit for the next area before you go and explore it.

    As far as I can tell, and I’ve tested it fairly thoroughly, there’s a soft-cap on how far above your level you can reasonably explore and adventure solo. Into the 30s (as far as I got in beta) it’s about 5-6 levels above you. Beyond that the mobs resist everything so you can’t effectively kill anything and the agro radius increases radically so you can’t really explore either.

    That still means you can go to a 15-25 area at 10th if you want. There’s no need to worry about not finishing the 1 – 10 area you came from either – when you go back there again when you’re level 20 or 30 you’ll scale back down and everything will give you xp just as if you’d never left – and you’ll get drops appropriate to your real level!

    That’s just solo. If you think about doing dynamic events, then if you can get there you can do them. In Rift I regularly did Stillmoor events with characters in my 20s and I plan on doing events here as far above my level as I can. Tyria is a world built for roaming.

    You can explore, sure, but I have an incredibly difficult time fighting mobs that much higher than me. Even auto leveled down via their system, things hurt. Maybe it’s changed since beta. People were being 1 shot going to events that were too far above.
