Sorry if this has been asked before but I couldn't find anything with the search button.
I would like to take part in the Empire defence missions but the only one I ever get is based in the Kahless system fighting feds that are many many levels lower than me. I can see that there are three other ED mission sectors which I cannot enter or find a quest to allow me.
Is this missing content? Am I doing something wrong?
Yeah you will have to kill the up to -10 ships until lvl20, only the amount to kill per mission will increase, then you can go to azure nebula, until lvl30, then you get to chos nebula. I guess lvl 40 is a new nebula then, but didn't reached it yet.
EDIT: Oh and an advice when being close to getting a new rank: Don't play PvP (and gain skillpoints there) when you have an already started PvE quest which you aim to end. As soon as you rank up you won't be able to complete it anymore and your maybe 2/3 progress was useless.
Azure opens at 17 (it is quite dangerous at 17 - I recommend avoiding the escorts as they turn like a bop, the battleships have viral matrix 2 - so you might want to avoid those too).
Caos opens at Commander 10 (it is extremely dangerous at commander 10 - the ship spacing seems terrible).
