Classic Everquest 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 20 - 30

Steamfont Mountains (Field Killing) Solo, antisocial zone - The brownies in Steamfont Mountains are actually not that bad of a place to farm for the lower levels. Their Brownie Parts have a few uses and sell the best of anything that drops here. Saltpeter drops here quite a bit and that is used in Research. Iron Oxide also drops here and is used in Pottery. Drop of Mercury as well but has a lower sell rate than the other tradeskill materials here. Honestly this location can net you a decent penny for how low level it is. Main loot: Brownie Parts, Saltpeter, Iron Oxide, Drop of Mercury

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

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.

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

Everfrost Mammoths (Field Killing) Solo, Antisocial Zone - As you may or may not already know Mammoth Meat is one of the ingredients in making Halas 10lb Meat pies and is what we're going to be farming at this location. I'm not going to lie to you, this location isn't that great so I only really recommend you come here if you've exhausted your other farming possibilities or farm the mammoths inbetween the Giants outside permafrost or while you're waiting for someone to give up that camp. The mammoths also can drop a tusk which will sell at a vendor for some plat ontop of their meats. Also, feel free to kill other animals in the area at a chance for some pelts.

Everfrost Giants (Camp) Solo, Social location - The giants in Everfrost are a pretty well known location and can be found right outside of Permafrost Caverns. There are only a few that spawn here so you won't be able to share the camp with someone and the camp is very highly traffic'd by people heading to Vox so it isn't a really good spot if you're looking to stay away from people. The good news though is these giants share the same loot tables as Hill Giants (or close enough) so they're pretty much walking money bags!

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.

Polished Bone Bracelets (Camp) - Solo, Antisocial Zone - You can farm Polished Bone Bracelets or PBB for short off of Evil Eyes located in the Gorge of King Xorbb, right next to Runnyeye and East Karana. The bracers can usually net a decent amount since there really aren't many good INT bracers in the game this early. The Evil Eyes here also drop pelts which can sell pretty well as well as gems/vendor trash runes. After a few days here you can get an inventory full of about 2k in vendor trash + 20 - 22 bracers and about 250pp in raw plat.

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!

Lavastorm Basilisks (Field Killing) Solo/Antisocial - 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 Mountain 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.

Castle Mistmoore (Camp) - Hooded Black Cloak this is one of the best cloaks in Classic EQ if not the best for most tanks. This is both good and bad for you, good because if you get the camp and the cloak you'll be making decent money. Bad because since the cloak is a wanted item and quite rare I may add it's going to attract a lot of different folks

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.

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.

The Hole (Dungeon Crawl) Boxers/Groups, extremely antisocial zone - The hole is a pretty good zone for farming if you just want to be left alone. If you're not after the Idol of the Underking that drops here (the healing focus item) then there is a very good chance you won't bother anyone no matter where you decide to camp. Even on a server as popular as Phinigel this zone is usually relatively peaceful. In The Hole there are two seperate monster types, the undead and the elementals. The elementals drop Loam Encrusted gear which is for INT casters and is some of the best stuff/only stuff you can get in Classic - Kunark. Also, the bracers remain good as do the sleeves until even PoP as droppable INT gear. Meaning you'll net a pretty good $ for a long time for certain pieces.

Withered Leather on the other hand is a bit different, it is for WIS casters and the armor is quite good during Classic and Kunark but it drops off after. Also some pieces have race restrictions that loam does not have at all. Also, the undead are much harder and fear than the elementals. This doesn't mean the undead are totally pointless to camp, they have a named that pops below the castle, Dartain the lost, on a long timer that is worth killing and I feel that withered leather has a higher drop rate for the better pieces than Loam Encrusted. Honestly, check both places out if you're here!
