Velious Farming Locations

           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.

Farming Locations 30 - 40

Runnyeye (Dungeon Crawl) Solo, Semi-Antisocial Zone - Most people you see that come to this zone and farm this zone are after the Black Alloy Medallion, BAM for short. It's one of the best necks in the game and it drops off a few different mobs here. Some of the other stuff is worth looting off the goblins to sell to a vendor, you can actually sell to a vendor in zone and bank if you /sneak behind them prior to interacting. The reason I say this is a semi antisocial zone is because 90% of the time you won't see anyone. However, if you're a pet class and you come to farm this zone expect to be harassed sooner or later by someone when they come by. Hence, semi antisocial.

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.

Farming Locations 40 - 50

Cyclops Ocean of Tears (Field Killing) Solo/Boxing Very Social - 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.

Frontier Mountains (Field Killing) Solo, Semi-social zone - Forest Loop, Lumberjack's Cap. The giant fort in Frontier Mountains is a semi decent place to farm at. You'll get both the aformentioned items as random drops off of the giants here, no nameds as far as I remember just the two valuable items listed and a bunch of vendor trash!

Lake of Ill Omen "Jade Chokidai Prod" (Camp) Solo, Social zone - The Jade Chokidai Prod is used in the Howling Stones key quest. The mob it drops from Chancellor of Di`Zok, is on an hour and a half respawn timer and depending on how populated your server is this could be a pretty big bottleneck. People are usually willing to pay decent money for you to farm this item for them!

Lguk "Evil Eye" (Dungeon Crawl/Camp) Group/Boxer, Social Zone - There are plenty of different things to camp in Lower Guk; Bag of Sewn Evil-Eye, Braided Cinch Cord, Light Burlap Sack, Mithril-Runed Tunic, Shining Metallic Robes, Black Tome with Silver Runes, Short Sword of the Ykesha, Thick Banded Belt, Flowing Black Silk Sash.

Chardok (Dungeon Crawl) - Boxers/Groups, antisocial zone - This is a dungeon crawl type zone for boxers, can be lots of fun and quite profitable too. (I will post a more detailed description of this zone after I venture there)

Nagafen's Lair SolB (Dungeon Crawl/Camp) Group/Boxer - One of the few dungeons you can farm in Classic EQ is SolB. There are quite a few items here of interest that you may be able to farm. Keep in mind if you're solo here and not boxing you probably won't be able to kill any of the nameds that drop the good stuff. Cloak of Shadows, Djarn's Amethyst Ring, Golden Efreeti Boots, Large Soiled Bag, Mithril Breastplate, Mithril Greaves, Polished Mithril Mask, Rokyls Channeling Crystal.

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.

Lguk "Evil Eye" (Dungeon Crawl/Camp) Group/Boxer, Social Zone - There are plenty of different things to camp in Lower Guk; Bag of Sewn Evil-Eye, Braided Cinch Cord, Light Burlap Sack, Mithril-Runed Tunic, Shining Metallic Robes, Black Tome with Silver Runes, Short Sword of the Ykesha, Thick Banded Belt, Flowing Black Silk Sash. **A lot less people will be here in Kunark than in Classic**

Nagafen's Lair SolB (Dungeon Crawl/Camp) Group/Boxer - One of the few dungeons you can farm in Classic EQ is SolB. There are quite a few items here of interest that you may be able to farm. Keep in mind if you're solo here and not boxing you probably won't be able to kill any of the nameds that drop the good stuff. Cloak of Shadows, Djarn's Amethyst Ring, Golden Efreeti Boots, Large Soiled Bag, Mithril Breastplate, Mithril Greaves, Polished Mithril Mask, Rokyls Channeling Crystal. **A lot less people will be here in Kunark than in Classic**

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.

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.

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!

Western Wastes - Field Killing Group/Boxer - Western Wastes probably isn't the best for XP but what it lacks for in XP it makes up for in drops! There are a lot of named dragons that wander around out here and some of them can be killed with 1 group fairly easily. These dragons drop some of the really rare Velious spells such as Burnout IV, Protection of the Glades and so on. You'll mostly be making plat here but you'll get some XP too!
