Progression Server Farming Guides

           Welcome to Almar's Progression Server Farming Guides! This was one of my most requested guides to do so I finally decided to complete one and put it out! You may be familiar with the format I used for my leveling guides, the same format is used for the Farming Guides. For some locations I will go into more detail and the name will be clickable. Usually these are my "preferred" locations. Also it is worth noting that I have the farming locations seperated by expansion. This will make it easier for all future progression servers when organizing guides and also it is helpful if you're looking for older locations and more ideas.

           Please keep in mind that Everquest is a group oriented game. There is no real good way to tell a max level to make amazing money without telling them to group or box. Most of the higher level farming locations will require that you group or box. As always I will show you locations you can do solo too but you will never be able to make the same amount as a boxer or someone grouping in a zone with great drops. The reason I am mentioning this is because I have seen my Farming Guides criticized by people who expected them to make them a krono or so a day solo.

           Many of you may have noticed the massively different take I have done on my EQ Leveling Guides for the progression servers. The reason for this is because I don't have a lot of time and I can't make an independant page and type up 5 paragraphs per location, take pictures, oh and don't forget actually going to each and every location and spending a few hours there just so I know exactly what to say as a refresher. Point is, it is a lot of work. I'd still like to share this information with the public but not have it take up my entire day to do so.

I have gotten pretty good feedback on my layout for the leveling section so I am going to continue using it for the farming section. Some locations that I cherry pick I will write a guide for primarily because those locations are so good they deserve it ;).

Farming Locations 1 - 30

East Karana (Field Killing) Solo, Antisocial Zone - The mobs in this zone that you'll be killing are all in their late teens to early twenties. You'll primarily be killing the spiders here for money but the lions/cats also drop pelts which you can sell for some plat too. A few higher level mobs patrol through this area so if you are lower level watch out for Cyclops, Griffons and Hill Giants. If you're higher level the Hill Giants and cyclops are great plat and the Griffons drop Griffon Feathers which can be sold as well. If you have Foraging be sure to forage here for Tea Leaves which also sell.

Shadeweaver's Thicket (Field Killing) Solo, Semi-social - By the Paludal zoneline in Shadweaver's Thicket (nearby the cave entrance up on the hill) you will find skeletons called "a lesser shade" they are extremely low level and can be killed with ease. These guys drop Shadeling Silk which can be used in Tailoring as well as Swirling Shadows which is the primary item you're going to be after here. The Swirling Shadows can net you some decent PP in the baz for being an item dropped in this level range.

Rallic Pack (Misc) solo, semi-social - Farming materials to craft Rallic Packs is a pretty good way to make money for lower level players. You can even craft the packs yourself if you'd like to cut out the middle man and just sell the packs! You'll need Perfect Owlbeat Pelts, Shadeling Silk, and some other vendor purchased stuff. For farming Shadeling Silk I recommend you check out the location just above this one in Shadeweaver's Thicket. As far as the Perfect Owlbear Pelts go, Hollowshade Moor is definitely your best bet. Check vendors in the zone too incase any noobie Vah Shir vendored them.

Farming Locations 30 - 40

Lavastorm Basilisks (Semi-field Killing) Solo, Antisocial Zone - The Basilisk in Lavastorm are a decent place to farm if you aren't looking for instant money, all you get here is Saltpeter and Basilisk Eggs. Farming here and stocking up on both Saltpeter/Eggs will net you a decent chunk of change, however, you should expect it to take awhile to sell everything. Also, if you're a melee fighter the basilisks are a total nightmare since they stun. The reason this location is listed is because it is still a farming location and there aren't many in classic to list to begin with. It may take

Rathe Mountains Hill Giants (Field Killing) Solo, Extremely Social Zone - Well I assume pretty much everyone playing Everquest knows about this location by now! Rathe Mountains is classic Everquests ATM bank pretty much. There's one hill where it is very common to see Hill Giants spawn and also very common to see lots of people running around slaying them. You can make well over 10k in raw plat from a day of farming here. Be warned though, this definitely isn't an antisocial location.

Solusek's Eye SolA (Camp) - Solo, Semi-social zone - Charred Guardian Shield / Charred Guardian Breastplate To be honest I am not entirely familiar with this location but I do know that a lot of people farm here for the shield as it is a really great seller during Classic and even into Kunark.

Castle Mistmoore (Camp) Boxer Antisocial Camp - Hooded Black Cloak this camp in Castle Mistmoore will be mostly deserted in this era. You can probably wipe the floor with this camp + a bunch of mobs in the area if you're a boxer. It could end up being a lot of fun. I mention it primarily because it would be a good place to go and be left alone.

Farming Locations 40 - 50

Cyclops Ocean of Tears (Field Killing) Solo/Boxing Semi-Social in PoP - In Ocean of Tears there is an island called the Seafury island which is home to a bunch of Cyclops as well as a single Hill Giant named Gornit. This island is a hotspot for soloers especially those who kite since the Cyclops have pretty good loot tables and Gornit does as well. You'll get at least a couple plat with each kill usually as well as gems and other valuables. Also there is a named cyclops that is very rare that spawns here called Ancient Cyclops, he drops a ring used in the Jboots quest!

Rathe Mountains Hill Giants (Field Killing) Solo, Extremely Social Zone - Well I assume pretty much everyone playing Everquest knows about this location by now! Rathe Mountains is classic Everquests ATM bank pretty much. There's one hill where it is very common to see Hill Giants spawn and also very common to see lots of people running around slaying them. You can make well over 10k in raw plat from a day of farming here. Be warned though, this definitely isn't an antisocial location.

Velketor's Labyrinth - Dungeon Crawl - Group/Boxer The Icepaw family makes this zone pretty profitable to camp considering they drop Spider Fur Belt, Collar, Cloak fairly regularly, even the trash kobolds. Each of the named kobolds has their own loot table, some items good, some not so good. Lute of the Howler is the main item that stands out at the kobolds. Either way, you should be seeing a lot of bazaar sellables if you spend some time here.

Farming Locations 50 - 60

Old Sebilis (Dungeon Crawl) - Boxers/Groups, social + antisocial zone - This is some of the best XP you can get in the game for Kunark the juggs also will make you rich. For 6 - 12 boxers I strongly recommend this zone as a dungeon crawl experience.

The whole right wing (where Disco 1 + 2 is) is great for lower level boxers/groups in here. The left wing is about the same as the disco area in both XP and loot. The center area (Crypt) is generally always camped and isn't the best XP - mostly nameds. You will also need a Bard or Rogue in order to pick the door for Crypt. Some loot you'll be interested in that drops from Old Seb is... Box of Nil Space, Cone of the Mystics, Froglok Bonecaster's Robe, Obulus Death Shroud, Hierophant's Cloak, Runebranded Girdle.

The "underneath" part of old seb, juggs, myoconids, that's where the money/fun is at. Once you're 55+ you should venture down here and camp the King or protector/tolpumaj

Chardok (Dungeon Crawl) - Boxers/Groups, antisocial zone - This is a dungeon crawl type zone for boxers and or groups. This zone is huge and there is a ton of different nameds and loot for you to get. The deeper you go into the zone to the north or south the harder it gets. At 60 the entrance area will be Light blue to you but most of the harder nameds that drop the best loot will still be Dark Blue. I am going to seperate the loot list for Chardok into two sections, one good for smaller boxers/groups and the other for larger boxers/groups

Good Loot in the Light Blue section of Chardok: Fancy Velvet Mantle, Girdle of Flayed Iksar, Shroud of Undeath, Shai'din Revenant Bauble, Crypt Master's Conjuring Stone, Earring of Twisted Leaves and others

Good Loot in the Harder section of Chardok: Vibrating Gauntlets of Infuse, Incarnadine Breastplate, Incarnadine Greaves, Pearly Sarnak Bauble, Writ of Di'zok and other goodies.

Howling Stones (Dungeon Crawl) - Boxers/Groups, antisocial zone. There are no set named spawn locations really in this zone either, they can spawn randomly throughout the wings. Also to correct a few mistakes on the internet Enshrouded Veil, Golden Bracer, Stein of Tears, Melodious Truncheon are all zone wide rare items, they don't drop off of nameds or out of any specific wing. I am 100% sure on this. Although the Truncheon is MUCH more common off golems than any other mob I have found.

South wing is the most profitable to farm because of Hand of the Reaper and Fingerbone Hoop.

The Hole (Dungeon Crawl) - Boxers/Groups, antisocial zone . Not many people will venture here in kunark - small boxers can do the elementals/rock golems which drop Loam Encrusted Gear. If the elementals and golems are a piece of cake for you and your group I recommend checking out the named that drops Idol of the Underking in the jail and the undead which are in the castle. The undead drop withered which sells for about the same as the loam gear does.

Dragon Necropolis - Boxer/Antisocial zone - The Phase Spiders here are fairly easy to kill and they all have a chance of dropping a Phase Spider Carapace which you could sell or use. Also there is a named Phase Spider in the eastern part of the zone, Queen Raltaas. She is very hard and drops Queen's Carapace. In the southern part of the zone you have snakes which is where Vilefang is and then you also have the Chetari rats which drop a few semi valuable things depending on your economy.

Velketor's Labyrinth - Dungeon Crawl - Group/Boxer The Icepaw family makes this zone pretty profitable to camp considering they drop Spider Fur Belt, Collar, Cloak fairly regularly, even the trash kobolds. Each of the named kobolds has their own loot table, some items good, some not so good. Lute of the Howler is the main item that stands out at the kobolds. Either way, you should be seeing a lot of bazaar sellables if you spend some time here.

Siren's Grotto - (Dungeon Crawl) Group/Boxer Fellspine + lots of velious quest gems and Tradeskill gems. Both of which you can vendor for an insane amount of plat for how many drop- There are a few good camps in Siren's Grotto, one of the best would be Fellspine for his Spiked Seahorse Hide Belt. You'll be able to net a pretty penny for the belt for awhile to come. The zonewide ink that drops here is worth keeping to sell in the bazaar. Drums of the Beast, Sleeves of the Kelpmaidens, and other goodies drop here too!

Grieg's End (Dungeon Crawl) Group/Boxer - The linked guide I have for this zone is made more for live players but it talks about the zone a little bit. I haven't done this zone before in era so I am ignorant to the nameds and such but what I can say is this zone has a higher than usual ZEM and has great vendor drops. The mobs here though hit really hard and have quite a bit of HP. It definitely will be a difficult zone if you're not 55+ and geared.

Iceclad Ocean (Quest) Lodizal Shell Shield - This is a pretty popular quest players do during this era. Primarily because the shield you get, the Lodizal Shell Shield is such an awesome shield (it has EB on it!!) You also can get other goodies from this quest/while doing the quest such as Lodizal Shell Boots and Belt of the Great Turtle. The boots and belt come from the named you have to kill for the quest, not the quest itself. During Velious there will be a lot of people doing this quest but it'll calm down a bit in Luclin and definitely once in PoP it'll be more of an antisocial quest than social one.

Cazic Thule (Quest) The Crude Bone Altar - I won't lie I don't know much about CT but it was recommended by someone who does that I mention this quest in my farming guide. It's not too difficult to do for a boxer or a group of real players and you can get a few different goodies from doing it, one of the better ones being Medallion of the Arcane Scientest.

The Deep (Field Killing) Boxer/Group Koxiux the Imperceptible - This isn't neccessarily a camp you can make a lot of plat off of but it is an amazing camp I felt worth mentioning because it's one of the earliest Shrink clickies, Wand of Imperceptibility, that I know of in the game. This is a must for anyone whose a big fat Ogre just because they're better tanks or really anyone who plays an excessively tall race.

 

Umbral Plains (Field Killing) Group/Boxer/Solo - Umbral Plains is a good place for players looking to get some XP and gear at the same time. Different mobs here drop different armor, most of it comparible to Planar armor. It's a great hunting spot if you need some gear once you get 55+. The mobs here have quite a bit of hit points and hit pretty hard so you'll definitely at least need a tank with decent gear before tackling this zone, or bring in a lot reinforcements ;P

<More Details will come for this zone soon, I wanna check it out myself>

Gantru - Plate Armor

Elysian Remains - Druid Armor

Dark Assassins - Ranger, Rogue, Bard

Fallen Soldiers - Dream Weaver armor for casters

Netherbians - Decaying caster armor

Acrylia Caverns (Dungeon Crawl) Group/Boxer - The guide I have written for this place is ancient but still has some useful information. The area outside the castle can be done by a smaller and lower level force than the castle. I'm sure you're used to the routine by now, kill in the lower level area if you're LFG/low on numbers and if you can push into the castle for better xp and loot! The vendor trash here is pretty valuable and the XP is phenomenal. Probably the best of the X-pac!

 

 

Farming Locations 60 - 65

Plane of Fire (Dungeon Crawl/Field Killing) Group/Boxer Very Social Zone- While you can solo PoFire in a few different locations this tidbit isn't for that. When it comes to making money in PoFire you'll need an actual group or be a boxer, your choice. I have two guides for Plane of Fire that cover a lot about the zone, however they've got a mixture of live info - PoFire C1 - PoFire C2 - depending on what you or your group can handle will determine where you should go, C1 if you need something a bit easy and C2 if you wanna step up your game. Be careful in C2 though if you're exploring as there are some raid mobs.

Crypt of Decay (Dungeon Crawl) Group/Social Zone -

Plane of Tactics (Field Killing) Group/Boxer Social Zone - The field in the center of Plane of Tactics.

Bastion of Thunder (Field Killing) Group/Boxer Social Zone - The bees in the bottom of the zone. You can reach the bees by going through a portal in the back end of any of the four elemental sections.

Plane of Valor (Field Killing) Group/Boxer Social Zone - There are a few different things to farm Plane of Valor for - Hero Parts, Metallic Liquid, and Brick of Valorium. xx

Plane of Nightmare (Dungeon Crawl) Group/Boxer Social Zone - Hobgoblin Cave

Ethereal Parchments, Spectral Parchments and Ornate Armor are primarily what you're after in Planes of Power zones. I will incorporate them into the guide for each location as the location is mapped out. If you're reading it before each location is finished, just keep an eye out for these items, they're the common high ticket items we're farming for.

Sorry Phinigel, you're so far ahead of Lockjaw it takes me extra effort to figure out the locations on live *or* I can wait until Lockjaw catches up - but that's a losing race.
