I have been having some FOMO about the xbox players on NA PSO2 so i went and spun up my old JP account to play a new character and i was quite thrown off.
when I spun up my lvl 1 character i immediately started receiving a level up after every mundane quest. things like applying a photon art to my bar, equiping items, talking to an NPC. By the time i was actually playing my first mission (and there wasn't a quest to walk me through how to actually start that which surprised me) I was already level 13, 10 Skill points to ration out, and had like 15 other quest givers to talk with.
Is this really the starting experience on the NA servers where you are bombarded with quest givers and items before you ever leave the first room?
