Can't get to the Crystal Desert because at the end of  "Sparking the Flame" (first mission) after speaking the "miner" server always drops me.

Tried 3 times and it happens always that point. 

Try changing your content streaming option in the settings mate.

usual people have problems if it is not set to max.

Streaming

Content Streaming — Sets the client's download streaming behavior.

On Demand

asks the game to download content only when the game requires it. This setting is useful for those who have data caps to worry about. This setting may cause issues of models popping in.

Idle 

will stream in content while your connection is generally idle during gameplay. This is useful if you're going to be playing in the same map for some time, so that the general impact to your gameplay should be minimal.

Max 

will stream-in content as fast as it possibly can. This is most like leaving the launcher to fully patch before playing. The Streaming Client will prioritize items you interact with in your inventory, wardrobe, gem store, etc. When a piece of UI content is interacted with, if the content isn't already on disk, it will overlay the spinner to indicate that the content is being downloaded. Do note that if you interact with a bunch of inventory items it could degrade performance as those items are given much higher priority. Once downloaded it may take a few moments before the item displays on screen.

Mine has always been set to max and I am still experiencing story disconnects on a frequent basis, so not sure this is a general solution to the disconnect issue people are having.

Well you cant be sure that is the problem it is a easy one to check for anyone.

Your problem maybe your wifi is spotty, or of your cable connected maybe your router is in need of a factory reset.

Or if your really screwed your internet provider take a dodgey route to anet servers and you will be affected by it always.

None of those things apply to my internet connection, believe me. It's all been tested multiple times. And it's not just me, it's affecting many players at random.
