Question - group games

I’m just starting out and had some questions.
1. How well dose group level mix in this game?
Example: I’m level 5 and the other person is level 50. Will I be to under-powered to do anything while they do all the work?

2. I start a game with a friend, if I play ahead completing quests they didn’t. Can I go back and complete the quest again with them or is it better to have one character when playing with my friend and another character for playing ahead.

    1. Basicaly you will be weaker than them, its because of lack of abilities and passives, but even with light/heavy attacks you should be able to kill some stuff, so you wont be totaly useles. All you need are few skills to kill stuff and there you go :)
    2. Im not sure how does it work now as I havent done qests in group for years but If Im not wrong, you should be able to help your friends even without active quest, you wont see objectives and sucha but you will see mobs to do some pew pew.
    I am doing my best, but I am not a native speaker, sorry.

    1. Last November, there was a patch named "One Tamriel", with the intent purpose to make exactly what you're asking for work properly: having players of different levels play together, without one being completely outlevelled. That's done by "scaling" everything to CP160 figures. So at level 5, your basic stats like health, stamina, magicka, weapon and spell damage, are increased very considerably. You can easily tag along with your level 50 friend and do - provided you both know the basics - quite good damage.

    2. You can generally do quests only once. But you can indeed be grouped with a friend, having only one of you be on a quest. Like Mayrael said, that will have the potential problem/disadvantage though that certain NPCs are only visible to players who are doing the quest. At some point you might even become invisible for each other in certain areas. That means you're being put in separate instances of the quest region, because the things going on in there are too different for the both of you.
    Kind regards,
