Post Mercenary Leveling Guide - Plane of Fire
Plane of Fire has plenty of different options for players between the levels of 60 - 75. There's field killing, dungeon crawling and one of the best and most memorable kiting locations in the whole game! If you've been following my guide up until this point you've used the Journeyman Tank Merc to do most of the killing.
Depending on your class/group make up you may want to start switching things up at this point. If you're a class that melees you should probably pick up a healer mercenary and raise your defense as well as other essentials to prepare for the huge difficulty spikes still ahead.
Even if you aren't a melee class you'll still want to raise your defense a bit that way you can take a punch later on in the game - it's extremely important!!
Anyway, as far as PoFire goes the first area you zone in at is Field 1 and is good for players 60 - 65. In the picture above the "city" looking thing to the left is City 1, aka c1. This area can be reached by going through the lava tunnel to the north or using Levitate and floating down into C1 from the mountain overlook nearby.
C1 is a great location for players 60 - 65 as well, much better than the first field. You can stay at this location all the way to level 70 if you want to and then you can move south to C2 which will easily take you to 75. Or if you'd like live on the dangerous side you can go to C2 earlier at 65 and bail from PoFire altogether at 70 instead.
The picture above shows Field 2, City 2 and the legendary tables that people kite around. The tables area is a very nice wide open area that has about a dozen or so mobs you can pull single. Inside city 2 it can be a bit intense at times with some of the larger pulls but it's one of the best EXP spots in PoP.
Field 2 is a bit more tough than City 2 and I can't really recommend you hunt Field 2 unless you're an SK who can pull a ton of enemies through swarming or something similar to that. City 2 has all the mobs you could possibly need and they're a lot less annoying than the enemies you'll find in Field 2.
