MENTOR DOWN!
Everyone is trying to tag all the things to complete these quests and to get credit for the event for a chance of loot rewards. (detailed below)
Mentoring down to the zone level means you wont one-shot everything and other people can tag too.
Dont be that guy who stays level 70 and stops other people from being able to complete their quests!

Zone Events

Unnatural Speciation and Aggressive Colonization are the zone events you need to look out for. Both these events have the correct Invasions and Footholds for the quests. You can track which zone events are up by checking YARET  these two zone events will be in green text as they are special events.
