When I assembling my party on my current playthrough, I travelled from the Wild Refuge where I picked up Neera, to Trademeet to pick up Rasaad. This was the first time I had travelled to Trademeet. Usually upon entering Trademeet, you arrive in the SE corner where you witness the guards fighting animals and then have a conversation. From the Wild Refuge however, I arrived in the NE corner while I could see the fight going on in the dialogue box. I just used ctrl+j to jump over and I don't think this is gonna break the quest but it's kind of silly that i) You enter at the north when travelling from the south and ii) It mucks up the opening event of the quest.
