MCH 30 to 50 Basic Activity Flowchart

Activity Quick Notes
Main Story Quests As long as you can do one, do it until your level is sufficient
Roulette: Leveling Gives some pretty chunky EXP given how fast these are
Palace of the Dead Quick, but repetitive…
Challenge Log To be completed “passively” while doing other things
FATEs Best while in queue or to driveby while doing MSQ
Roulette: Guidlhest At least thrice, for the 3x Guildhest challenge log entry
Sidequests Can be great or terrible depending on the proximity to MSQ
Levequests Best saved for DoH and DoL, or challenge log completion
Dungeon Spam Not too hot. Guys are undergeared…. Lack of full AoE rotations
Fates at 30 to 50 Info
FATE Zone Level Quick Notes
Costa del Sol 30+ Good ‘ol Costa
Coerthas Central Highlands 35+ Central and Southern Areas (Observatorium)
Coerthas Central Highlands 40+ Central and Northern Areas (Whitebrim)
Various Best Tribe Zone 45+ Best one would be Western La Noscea
Ceruleum Processing Plant 48+ You can go here much earlier

Honestly, these are the basics – but there are MANY different maps you can go to for each of these tiers and in between.

45+ gets a bit loose. Western La Noscea “Waterworld” is great, (the FATES nearer the gate), but have a ton of adds. You can also try the Kobold Map – Sylph is the worst IMO. You can also just skip this tier and go straight to Ceruleum.

As always Healers, and to a lesser extent Tanks, are heavily unfavored to FATE solo (which is counteracted by faster roulette queues).

Again, there are a myriad of options per tier, and I cannot realy go into detail as the above mentioned maps are considered the “Standard” – but feel free to explore.
