Yes, I have... however each archtype has their own areas on the night time quests where there are plenty of mobs to kill. Also, if necessary there's the Costal Cave at lvl 10 that can be grinded a little as mobs respawn fairly quickly, as well as the mobs in the ruins if any differences need to be made up.
I ran this using a Mage Archtype but didn't even run it to the full potential to get these results as I didn't make a full clear in the Underhalls night time but instead went straight to my destination. I also didn't fully clear the castle in order to keep it more even. In the later parts you could actually get a bit further with a priest or mage archtype than I did while making this. This is the main reason I included the exact levels for each stage, to be able to see if you're a bit off to pick a relatively safe spot to make up the difference.
Each Archtype has a few of the following areas to clear:
White Sands Nighttime
Out of all the Archtypes, the one you may have to do a bit of grinding before 18 is the Rogue archtype, however they also have unlimited stealthing to venture into the pvp zones earlier on and be able to survive at least to get a couple quests done.
Between Jack and I, we've gotten at least one of each Archtype to 20 and out of Tortage. While the destiny quests vary, the differences in possible exp overall doesn't vary much.
At this low level it also wont take too many mob kills to make up any differences. You can in fact do the entire thing fairly quickly with grinding alone, however I figured there's enough of that later on, so put in as much questing as possible without hitting gankers paradise. At the very least this should break up any grinding sessions to very small periods of time.
If you however use this and find specific problem areas for a specific archtype, I'll be glad to add in notes on that. Just let me know whch one and where.
It can and likely will be very off on characters already started without using the guide though, since I can't account for every possibility of the order of quests already done, and quest XP as well as mob kills can vary greatly when done just one level earlier or later.
