Ships in Dulak
« Reply #15 on: August 23, 2004, 05:13:03 am »
I started soloing ships @ 49 when I got my new pet. Upper deck it's pretty easy to control mobs, no adds when done right, and always nice when you don't have to roll or take turns on gem drops =). Just start with the ship to the right of the tunnel, and progress to others as you feel comfortable.

 Gear wise, not uber by ANY means, but I have a few nice pieces, either gifts or from farmin HG's. Make sure to have your 2 DD's up. When they get on the dock, it can get hairy if the mob's there have re-spawned

Well I finally dinged 57 and I'm still in Dulak and still on boat three: Dandolak.  All the mobs on board are still conning DB, so I'll stay till they con LB. Maybe this will happen at 58. <shrug>
With KEI and Virtue I normally keep the main deck cleared and do the two mobs on the stairs, before they start to re-pop. Exp is about 1% per 5-6 kills, but the cash is good enough, they are all single pulls and Dulak is a quiet zone. Throw in a few gem drops and it's a great place for good steady exp and loot.
I came to Dulak at 53, but wish I had started here at 49. My rule of thumb with the ships is to move on to the next one, once the mobs start conning LB.

At 49 the OOT Seafuries are good exp and if you can get the Gornit camp as well, you'll be making so fine cash.

Did the Hole ent at 53. Nice exp, but they went LB at 54.

you also didnt put the plane of disease on there. i leveled their from about 50-52 the flys near the ent are amazing exp, well worth the difficulty to kill.  they hit hard and take a long time to kill (any adds and you screwed) but i got at least 5-10% exp from each kill and im an iksar.

I know that it's been said before, but exp per kill doesn't matter.  What you want to look for is exp/hour.  If you are getting 5% per kill but it takes 15min to kill it and another 30 to med up after the fight.  That would make about <7%/hour.  now if you are getting 2% per kill and flying through them, you can easily get 10-20%/hour.

that's just my 2 copper.

I wanted to add a note to the bears in Permafrost. Just a word of caution to anyone else that might try there. Stay AWAY from the Chill Terror. He conned dark blue to me at 55, but knocked out my pet and me before I could blink (hit for around 520). He's for some dragon scale turn in quest.

I notice the list mentions that you need a porter or gate potion for the hole.  Am I the only one who knows how to navigate the castle to get back out?  Heck Invis through it if you don't want to fight, earth elementals don't see invis.

The tower door used to be locked. It has since been changed. At 54 I was soloing from entrence to bottom floor of castle and back. At 55 I do the same but for AAs only.

I see that this hasn't been updated in awhile, and in checking out some of the places, it seems that it's changed a bit (i.e. gnolls in jaggedpine conned mostly green and light blue to me at lvl 55.)  Any good solo areas for a lvl 57?

Con colors have changed since then...green and lb now was lb and db then.  Gear (and to a lesser degree, weapon ratio) mudflation, and /ooc regen have made hunting higher con mobs more profitable now vs. when these were written.

As far as good for 57?  Velk's is a hotzone now, good place to find a group and zing through some AAs/lvls.  There's stuff in TSS to try also, though I'm not sure the best areas (never levelled up in there past 35ish).  Parts of mesa maybe?

Skyfire works well at 53.  Everything is LB or B.   Some of the Ancient Wvyrens are tough though.  Nice spell drops and coin.

This seems to be a great thread. Thank you for giving me some ideas of solo spots!
