Does anyone else feel that there seems to be a dearth of Tier 5-9 Season 1 adventures? Was the reasoning for this that it was the "first" season and that next season will include more?

While I understand (and agree with) the philosophy of one low level and one higher level adventure, it seems that almost every single high level adventure for Season 1 has consisted of Tier 7-11 adventures. This probably was from the fact that the Echoes of Everwar Series was created as a 7-11, however wasn't offset from other scenarios being Tier 5-9. Anyone else see this?

Spoiler:

1-5: 4
1-7: 10
5-9: 2
7-11: 8
12: 2

I'm not sure how much of a problem it is considering the tiers that sandwich it - both add quite a bit of options to that 5-9 character level range.

I look at the available tiers and wish there were a couple more 7-11s because I can't get to 12 until a couple more come out based on what is available to me. But overall that's not a problem since I'll just play a second character in the meantime.

Actually, that's effectively the reason why I brought it up. While there are available scenarios for me, the options are limited now because I've been trying to get a few more people higher level - which has been taking up more and more 1-7 adventures. It also was partially my fault because originally in the level 1-3 range I played almost exclusively 1-7 adventures, only switching to Tier 1-5 when I realized I was "running out" of Tier 1-7 adventures.

Like I said I'll be fine and have even 5-9 to get me to 7 and beyond, I'd just like to see a little more variety next season, as I get a different "feel" from a 1-5 scenario than from a 1-7, same as from a 1-7 to a 5-9.


It's best not to think about the totals per Tier and rather to think about how someone levels a character through the seasons if they're playing month-over-month.

Originally Tier 1-7 was Tier 3-7, but we made it 1-7 to increase the number of low-level scenarios available since you're more apt to die in the lower levels. Tier 5-9 serves as a bridge between 1-7 and 7-11 and isn't necessary every month to keep the average leveling.

Now all of that being said. There is a dearth of 5-9 adventures. This is especially true with the mods that will soon be retired. They serve a nice niche of levels and work well when coupled with the 1-5 mods in the same slot. I see more of them are coming down the line with the release schedule. I'd say keep em coming.

As they are needed in the schedule, so shall they be released. :-)
