My level 21 Sylvari thief is stuck in the personal story. I'm not new to MMOs but I think I'm missing something here.
The mission is where you and Caithe accompany the Harbinger down the river to find where he was born. Once the cut scene is over I get wiped out in 10 seconds and there is no way to recover. If I try to come back down the river Caithe is down and I end up taking on 4 Nightmare Court underwater and getting my ass handed to me.
Am I missing something about how I should be tackling these? I'm being downleveled just to run this (its a level 16 story).
