Prophet Quests question

So I rolled up a new character on AD the other day, since I haven't done anything with that faction past Auridon. I was level 7 when I left the first island and I promptly got the first Prophet quest. I went and did it to get it out of my quest tracker and headed back to Vulkul Guard. Prophet says he has another quest so I turned around and did the next one. Back to VG, but he appeared with quest #3. So I turn right back around and do that one. On my way back to VG he accosted me AGAIN with quest #4 in his chain. I'm level 8. The first time around I didn't get this quest until 15 or 20. Is he broken, or is this a new thing since I'm nearly done with them on a different character?

    It's a new feature with 1T. Tamriel is your Oyster, no level restrictions anymore. Only "reputation" locks with the guilds.

    Ah, okay, it's 1T. Makes sense now. Thanks!

    It might be on account of One Tamriel, but the Prophet's quests should still be level restricted.

    Levels can be bypassed for Alliance Quests, Group Bosses & Public Dungeons, Miscellaneous Quests and Trials and Pledges, but for the main quests progression and for me the Guild quests, level restrictions should still be in place.

    We still need some kind of progression in the game
    The infamous arcane explosion in the Imperial City that happened in the Spring of 2e579 — a night of storms, and trembling terrain — as related by the Chorrol Crier, mentioned by Chancellor Abnur Tharn in his "Eulogy for Emperor Varen" and explained by Lyris of Skyrim in the first volume of her "Chronicles of the Five Companions", and others, I am sure. The “Soulburst” happened at the same time as a big piece of Aetherius fell to Nirn. Coincidence? It was the first major piece of Aetherius to fall in five hundred years.

    Then I met the Prophet on 4 Rain's Hand 2e582.

    Agreed. The number of main quests fits perfectly into one every 5 levels and being able to do it all at Level 3 makes it all go too quickly.

    I was just having the same question. Every time I leave the harborage I am called back almost immediately. So I finished one quest there and decided to look up the original quest levels before One Tamriel....the quest was originally level 35, I am 14.....So what's with this? Seems like we still shouldn't be offered the quests til the intended level, regardless of the level scaling, otherwise every time you leave you are called right back. I'm gonna lay off of them for a while, seems weird.

    They didn't want anything to be level-locked any more, and I guess that's reasonable; there's never been a level-locked main quest before in an Elder Scrolls game. But perhaps what would be better is a timer. After completing one of the Harborage quests, the next one doesn't appear for, say, 2 hours.

    Completely unnecessary change, they should have left it in 5 level increments ...

    That level restriction with the main quest made perfectly sense to me as I leveled up my character. It was always something to look forward to while getting to higher levels. It was part of my ESO experience and I don't want to miss it with future characters. So please switch that back!!

    I agree with @Endoc that past ES games have not had these restrictions and I've seen the Skyrim speed run videos on YouTube, but something still bothers me about a level 10 player having completed the main quest. I feel like it deflates the experience. I looked forward to leveling up enough to get another Harborage quest during my first playthrough. There's something to be said for having some suspense over how the main quest will continue.
    I don't always drink Skooma, but when I do I go to the Southwall Corner Club. May you walk on warm sands my friends.
