Mathosia

Started in February 2021 – Finished all zone questlines up to Ember Isle in December 2021.
I still need to sort some of the Meridian/Sanctum quests and do the saga questlines, these will be done after I finish all the rest of the zone quests.

Mathosian Questline

The Mathosian Questline is separate for Defiants and Guardians. The two factions start in different Tutorial areas and are then teleported to different areas of the real world.
Defiants and Guardians start questing in the same zones at around level 27, but with mostly different questlines. You can see which quests are shared in the chart near the bottom of this page.

Mathosian zones all have 2 different guide pages, one for Defiants and one for Guardians.

Planetouched Wilds is part of the Nightmare Tide expansion, you can find the Planetouched Wilds quest guide here.

Defiant Questline in Mathosia

Starting in the Tutorial zone of Terminus, then moving on to the Defiant controlled zones of  Freemarch and Stonefield and onward to the rest of the world.
Mathosia will provide you with quests to level up to level 50.
Ember Isle is a level 50 zone, but it’s built to be challenging so you will likely find it easier to go straight to Storm Legion areas and come back to Ember Isle at a later date.
Planetouched Wilds is also in Mathosia, this is a level 65 zone so you will come back to quest there after completing Storm Legion and Nightmare Tide areas.

Guardian Questline in Mathosia

Starting in the Tutorial zone of Mathosia, then moving on to the Guardian controlled zones of  Silverwood and Gloamwood and onward to the rest of the world.
Mathosia (the continent) will provide you with quests to level up to level 50.
Ember Isle is a level 50 zone, but it’s built to be challenging so you will likely find it easier to go straight to Storm Legion areas and come back to Ember Isle at a later date.
Planetouched Wilds is also in Mathosia, this is a level 65 zone so you will come back to quest there after completing Storm Legion and Nightmare Tide areas.

Known Broken Quests

Scarwood Reach – Guardians
Quest: Fooling the Sages – Picked up from a Shatterbone Report dropped by a Shatterbone Cultist. The report does not drop and so you are unable to pick up the quest. This quest opens up the Quest: A Worn out Welcome, and so this quest also cannot be completed.

Ember Isle – Defiant
Quest: The Pykari Menace – Picked up from Sylver Valis in Talos Landing – A lot of people are having issue with this quest, Jace does not appear for them! You can try exiting and re-entering the quest area, Mentoring down to level 51 (if you are over level 56) or switching shard (this worked for me!).
