With no limitations (lvls and class) the cash splashers would outmatch a couple of months old player in a week for this type of quest > so it aint absurd.
I think you should try it. I will try it. > first step was very easy.
The bosses are nerfed. Bring battle items to ensure a victory.
No Boldtusk > healing potions. No Grimm > bring Valen. Bring antidotes for Azlar, step 3.

From experience I tell you that the first 2 months can be frustrating.
My advice is to finish a tc20 and start producing; from there you will see the game more relaxed.
Ofcourse this game aint for everyone (all types of people character pov); if you are eager to get to top best is to move on and let this game slip through…
