Honestly dude you do you, but i would try and level one character on both sides to 60. Just explore and immerse yourself as much as possible. The quests are really well done, and i find the way the zones flow is much better than current day retail.
When the hunted tell tales of Gondar, none are sure of which are true. In whispered tones they say he was abandoned as a kit, learning his skill in tracking as a matter of simple survival. Others hear he was an orphan of war, taken in by the great Soruq the Hunter to learn the master's skill with a blade as they plumbed the dark forests for big game. Still others believe he was a lowly street urchin raised among a guild of cutpurses and thieves, trained in the arts of stealth and misdirection.
