to speed up leveling with allegiances, complete the intro for each allegiance. for each allegiance not max'd out, you will get a quest (every day or so) from each allegiance that can be completed withing a resource instance that begins with Candur in the Udun Foothold. Completion of each of these allegiance quests provides a 2000 allegiance point shiny! these quests disappear when you max an allegiance.
Thank you and a Happy Halloween to you both & all the rest of the kin too!
