eh, technically your able to get to ledise by lvl 8, and i cant remember which cardinal direction it is but in the middle of the city they have big exits in each direction one that goes up a long ramp/stairs leads you out of the city there are some decen areas to grind.
And most people hate being stuck in baby land and shoot straight for the main land. however there are advantages to staying on balt till like lvl 11, i couldn't stand to grind anymore, i completed all the quests i believe and had farmed a decent amount of gold and green equipment so i went ahead and journeyed to the main land.
Also, to avoid the common curse of finishing all available quests on the sorcy, i've been trying to maintain a quest-a-lvl grind-a-lvl. It's really easy to do at beginning levels, when yous tart out just grind at the starter shore till lvl 4 or 5, you've opened up several quests that way, and on the way to the town gather the training quests, do them (dont turn them in) and level up, then turn htem in you'll usually go up another level and repeat.
Once you hit ledise, try to maintain this, especially by gathering all the available quests, doing them 9but not turning them in) level up, then turn in, and gather the next round of quests.
