Ok, so I'm new to the game, but felt I was getting the hang of the mesmer. Then, I got the note about my personal quest, Welcome Home (I'm human with noble background, BTW). So, I enter the personal story instance and got a total beat-down.
SpoilerSo, I go to the party, don't really do much except watch the lame magician, and go talk to my jerk friend. I follow him and we proceed to get jumped by about 4-5 bad guys. They flat out cleaned my clock. I was able to kill one of them by kiting him, but the 3 others got me cornered and I had no room to move. Are there NPCs that are supposed to help you? Because I was on my own.
Just trying to figure out if it's a broken encounter or if there is some key technique I'm missing. I was using a scepter and pistol (that's all I had) and was second level, if that matters.
