View Full Version : I think I messed up my progression

I started a few days ago (free to play) and I think I've messed up my progression. I was following the main story line and doing all the side missions whenever I see them. After a while, I no longer see any side missions or main story line so I did one of the "Season" mission for Season 2 Episode 1, the one that have me drive a long way into San Francisco (quest giver is in the starting military camp).

Once I'm there, I started encountering these Dark Matter enemies who have tons of shields and there are plenty of them. It frequently takes an entire magazine of my SAW (300 rating) to drop even 1 of them, and when there's a swam of them back by one of those mech unit with dual rocket pods, the fight becomes very difficult.

Have I messed up somehow and missed the main story line? Thanks.

Thanks, I just found out from this site:
http://www.ign.com/wikis/defiance/Main_Missions

That I have not done the "Breaking into San Quentin" yet. The odd thing was, that after doing the previous mission, "Follow Cass's Lead", I didn't anymore main or side missions, that was why I clicked on the Season 2 mission. I'll abandon the current mission and see if I can pick up from the main story again.

Funny thing was I managed to complete 1 mission, it was very tough for me where you escort 3 other e-rep soldiers or something. All the mobs felt like they're bullet soak and I kept having to run back to ammo crates for ammo.

As you complete your main mission line, the next sequence in that may not pop up immediately, you can always log out/in and the progression point should be there.

Thanks must be the reason why, I recall searching on the map for a while as I usually do all the side missions before doing the next main story one, but didn't see any. I'll try again later today.

Sometimes missions can be blocked if there is a event happening in that region, for example a major arkfall or siege/incursion. If you have accepted a mission who's objective resides in the event area, one of your objectives would become to break the siege in that area first before you can continue, it happened to me several times when i still did missions.
If it happens, try relogging or doing some events and try again later. And for the sake of progression, do the Season/episode missions in order, don't mix them up as you will find yourself in a situation like you are now.
Best to do the season missions after you have completed the main missions entirely, because they might take you to places that are too difficult.
Main missions+side first, season missions after in the very end.
