The requirement of doing pre-apex prior to the banquet was removed with Patch 92 and now you get put directly into the Banquet / Apex quest line. You can still go through the pre-apex stuff and be introduced to all the solo content but it is no longer required. You now get materials for Exodor Scout Gear along the way. You"ll get the scout gear in the first few minutes of the Apex Banquet. Updates to this post are in progress but so far it looks like it"s the same progression with different materials for rewards. The other notable change is you need to be 68 before the " A New Beginning" quest line unlocks. If you have some progress in the quest line prior to 68, you"ll be able to complete that step but the subsequent ones won"t open until you are at least level 68.
