SoD Leveling Guide - Old Commonlands
Old Commonlands is a revamped version of the original classic EQ Commonlands which, much like Old Commonlands, is connected to Kithicor Woods. You'll find the Old Commonlands zone line on the far eastern end of Bloody Kithicor Woods - much like it was in original EQ.
While Bloody Kithicor got an entire make over with the SoD expansion, Old Commonlands did not. It has the same layout as the original Commonlands and even many of the same enemies - which weren't even increased in level or given new drops for the revamp. That's right you can straight up still kill a Dervish Cutthroats in this zone and get the same loot as the original Commonlands!
That aside, there are *some* changes between the two zones... You'll find large "enraged" animals patroling the zone which are tuned more to SoD levels as well as dozens of camps and patrols of Obliteration enemies, the same ones from Bloody Kithicor.
This zone isn't too friendly to those looking to solo - no relatively weak enemies here and most of the mobs you'll end up fighting are going to come in groups of 3 or more.
- In order to reach this zone you'll need to go through The Void which can be reached from Plane of Time. There's two easy ways to reach Plane of Time, the Guild Hall portal or a Wizard/Druid. Or you could speak with the NPC in PoK that ports you here, Herald of Druzzil Ro. He's found east of the small bank but before the Soul Binder.
