There is a mentorship program in Ashes of Creation where upper-level players are able to benefit from partying or helping lower-level players and getting them oriented to different aspects of the game.
The mentorship program provides individual quests that can be initiated by the mentor based on what node they are part of. These are quests that are determined by either certain buildings and organizations or the mayor and there are specific ones that are available for mentors to provide to mentees.
A mentor can lead their mentee through a dungeon, meet at prearranged locations or complete escort quests for NPC caravans. These types of activities, when done together, will provide benefits both for the mentor and the mentee, so upper-level players are incentivized to participate with new players.
