That might be possible. Regardless of that UI thing, my characters still get way more powerful than all the enemies I face later in the game. They may do scale fully but if that's the case it's not enough on Very Hard.The "very low" on the quest Marker DON'T reflect the real stats that the Enemy have you encounter in the quest.
The Enemy scales to the Players level.
The Quest markers have a simpel Skript saying: if Players level xy then show this.
Two different Things/Mechaniks.
Only good to estemate the minimum Level of the Quest. Not more.
As I said, the enemy have a minimum Level but no maximum Level...
