1. If your group is experienced have the first Advanced Test with the Blacksmith have some kind of consequence, an example is might be after 5 minutes (thus 5 attempts as the the adventure states the tests are 1 minute each), the mob try to take the elf by force, thus leading to a combat situation.
2. You can afford to have a few more Blight Wolves in the first encounter, the adventure says 1 per pc, but im guessing this is in case some players are new, becuase mine tore through them using all their abilities and such. I'd say 1 for each of the pc's + 2 would be a better fight.
3. Make it clear (as in add it in) that Eshara needs to lead them to the site of her old camp as she can only remember the way to the Keep from there, or if she draws a map, have it drawn to the camp, and have her say that the tracks from there will lead them the rest of the way. Have her explain that as she ran away from the keep in a panic and in the dark that she can't recall a direct route back. This adds the camp scene into the game in a more flowing way. I didnt do this and i sort of had to shoehorn it in and my players were all like, why didn't she just take us straight to the keep? The camp scene is very cool, so missing it out would be a shame.
That's it so far, everything else was great fun for us.
Oh one thing you might consider is that if the party is walking towards Vivinter through teh farmaland that they see a murder of crows circling above one of the fields, thus leading them to investigate the farmstead. Plus you get to say mmmuurrrdddddeeerrr ooffff cccrrrooowwwss!

Considering it being a first run through of the games it's bound to be slow but if you look at it you could probably get thrugh an Exploration encounter and an RP encounter in an hour, and that could give you 200 or more xp. Then presumably there'd be a fight or two. I'd conservatively say you're looking at 500 or so xp per game? Though it depends on how your PCs fair.
