/points a lil further down

if ur fire flagged, c1 is still frankly hard to top in regards to return for difficulty.

Bring a stack+ of HoT potions & ur golden.

Would love to try fire some time.  Need to bribe my way into getting piggied into an open raid for it... guild not quite there yet.  As far as the topic goes... I've actually done a bit of exping in Ssra temple lately.  I would put it at around the same level of difficulty as GE (beginning areas anyway), and if I remember correctly the shissar scales sell pretty nice.  Something different to give a try anyway.

well.. it ain't all that nice to be honest, but you can mow through those light blue mobs like no tomorrow.  The shissar scales should still be selling nicely, as their like 3 or 4 races best path to 290 tailoring.

Aye, Shissar scales sell very well.  Snakes have a buttload of hp though, maybe not to the same level as GoD+ zones, but I know they have more than the mobs in Griegs.  If you're well-stocked offensively, you should be fine in Ssra, otherwise it might not be the most efficient path for you.  Either will be safe, it's just time vs exp gained to look at.

caster snakes have approx 10k hps (1k nuke eats 10% of em).  The live snakes have a bit more, but not that much more.

That, and the mitigation of that snake skin slows down the kill rate.  Most are only partially slowable too, IIRC?

/shrug.. if I get a single, I don't usually slow em so that the DS can do its work a lil better.  The taps usually more than keep up with em.  Even elites swing so slow relative to oow+ mobs now.

Heh.. tanked Rhag1 recently.  God.. unslowable.. but I've had 100% effectiveness slow mob that hit fast than he did ;p

Plane of Storms is also a good place to "mow" mobs.  Stay away from giants, but trash in the first field is easy and decent xp.  Lots of wanderers and chance for adds though.
Droga can also be plowed through fairly quickly.

When I solo for xp, I go to one of 2 different places .. either C1 fire or east murk caves in WoS.  That's it.  I've found nothing better soloable with that kind of sustained kill rate.

SSRA isnt very good for xp solo at 70.  I go there all the time for scales.  The zone tends to go from 'rediculously gimp' to 'umm .. curiousity almost killed the cat' real fast.

Gimp side aa moves a little which makes the pain of farming a little more pleasant, but i thought about moving upstairs a bit too since, you know, im like all uber and stuff now (/sarcasm) and managed to play with eye of zomm and pet and get behind a couple locked doors and pulled (3) Crypt Guardian's down on me at once.  I was pretty happy I made it out of there alive.  After I killed them, of course.

Oh man .. one of the most interesting and stressful fights I've had recently (solo) was down in Chardok, I 2-boxed my druid down there as a rogue shroud to let me in to solo the King.

I'm in the safe hall in the corner, and I get a runner that hobble didnt stick on for some reason.  Actually I think it was because I had my 39 pet out at the time getting ready to pet pull King and had big-kitty in the pocket so, of course hobble probably got resisted a ton.

Not kidding .. my friend was watching over my shoulders .. I'm telling him .. I'm gonna die .. I'm gonna die ...

No less than 12 mob train came knocking on my door.  No time to slow.  No way of knowing which mobs i really slowed or not anyway with that many, so basically said EFFFF slowing  it.

Fortunately, I keep a good /pet assist hot key ready.

Fortunately, Staunch Recovery (or whatever the insta heal aa is) was up ..

Fortunately, my Jester was up.

Fortunately, my Steadfast Servant was up.

Fortunately, I had healing pots and PoS ready.

and God Bless LIFETAPS!

I floated at 20% health for a long time, just fortunately every mob that I assisted my pet on just meant that dps taken to me got less and less and future survivability odds went up .. but it was pretty intense, my friend was freaking out as he watched the monitor over my shoulder .. just frantic trying to time everything right that comes from experience.

I'm suprised no one mentioned one of my personal favorites for PL'ing\Leader Points:  Temple of Droga.

From the start mobs are at LEAST light blue with the majority being dark blue but insanely easy.  I'll typically run thru here with my bardling and some friend's lower level twinks.  You can literally chew thru half the zone without a single heal.  The I just turn around, run back to the entrance for some more.

The other benefit is the cash\tribute drops are very nice indeed.

I used to hunt droga for tribute/break from C1.  The spot a bit in where it opens up before you go right toward king has a ton of mobs and several named.  It's been forever, but I think I'd go right and for a named necro room, then up for named rogue, then east for named SK, then further east for named mage.  Decent coin, skins/salts, stuff tributed well.  It's also much faster paced as you can fight a few mobs at once and kill very quickly instead of the slower kills for bigger exp gain. 

If you go down in by king I think all is dark blue, but that might have been back at 65, it's been awhile since I hunted there.  The mobs are harder though, but several other drops you can farm from named in that area as well.  Lots of options though and especially for a lower geared/AA'd person the risk/time/return is quite good.
