    Every Bandit tells me (when they're not popping off with some wisecrack about not being a tour guide) Mackey is there in the back, keep looking. But he is not... am I doing it wrong or is this bugged? No one is attacking me, I have the necessary items in my inventory but also no one in the first level is named Mackey... kinda feel like they're punking me. :(

    Don't know if you still play, but he's the bandit leader. Until you talk to him, his name doesn't show up as Mackey.

    So given that Crag Foothills is tier 5... at what point can someone plow their way through and survive solo? Or with a buddy?

    I'm pretty green still and the elves are red. I'm afraid to take on two of them (they look to travel in pairs).

    At low levels that whole area is very dangerous. Though often times, going in there in Open mode, I usually see several people in there killing things.

    I’d just head in the default entrance, and have a look around. Don’t go too far from the entrance though.

    The area near the mine entrance can get a bit nasty.

    Yeah, I peaked my head in there and was able to get an archer on his own. I got a few hits in and it looked like I had a chance and then he nailed me hard a few times and I realized I had zero chance of taking a red archer on my own where my character is at the moment, so I backed out to Novia. I guess I'll put Path of Truth on hold for a while.

    The path of Truth is the hardest of the Virtue quests, and that area is a good indicator of what you are going to be facing later on. Once this area is manageable by your character, that’s a good indication you can proceed on the Truth Quest.
