Started up yesterday and was wondering about this before I played and unfortunately found my worries to be accurate from experience. I went on a high pop eu server (Desolation) and started playing at about 3pm. My leveling experience from 1-5 involved mostly killing creatures for unlocking weapon skills and doing the main quests that I remember from being in the last beta weekend. I think from 1-5 I done 2 possibly 3 events with both of them being just me on my own or with one more player.. nearly died on my first one protecting crops from bandits as I was soloing it. Later on, I decided to make a Warrior and taking advantage of peak times to get all those weapon skill unlocks up, this was at 7pm and found my 1-5 leveling experienced was completely different than my first character. I think I only done the first quest at the farm then the rest was purely events, events felt far more frequent with plenty more people about.
Is this me being unlucky and not a problem or something I should take into account when playing the game? Seeing my work hours are varied, I generally tend to play less in peak hours.. is this going to effect my leveling experience much? I don't want to be missing out on cool events because there isn't enough players around for them to even start.
