Field of Scale "Relatively Weak" Animals 75 - 80
The "Relatively weak" animals in Field of Scale are one of the best sources for XP during this level range for players that are really short on AAs and can't handle regular mobs their level. If you are new to the whole relatively weak con on these mobs, it means that the mobs hit for much less and have much less HP than regular mobs. Pretty much they are weaker than a regular mob of this level in every single way possible. Also since these mobs are weaker than all other mobs of their level as you could have guessed they do give less XP than usual.
The Field of Scale relatively weak animals are probably my favorite ones because not only are there so many of them but you can come here when these mobs are still red to you and kill them for a huge amount of XP and they won't even do that much damage to you! These mobs are so easy you will almost laugh in real life once you see how wimpy they are. Although if you pull a normal mob in this zone and you don't have at least over 1k AAs he will wipe that grin right off your face. The normal mobs here hit for a couple thousand which is 10x more than the relatively weak ones.
Below is a map of the two paths you will be following to find these relatively weak animals in the Field of Scale. Make sure you stay on the blue lines in the picture as these are the safest areas where you will be able to skip as many of the "normal" mobs as possible. Get in the habit of right clicking every mob you come across to check and see if it cons relatively weak to you because if it doesn't and you attack it you're going to be dead.

Now, my absolute favorite part of leveling up in the Field of Scale is the loot. Unlike many of the other zones with Relatively Weak mobs, Field of Scale has excellent loot. You will find tons of gems here that are worth a ton at a vendor (Diamonds, Battle Fractured & Cabilisian) and also some gems you can sell in The Bazaar for a good amount of money (Taafeite, Staurolite, Prestidigitase, Harmonagate). Also you will get Rank II Spells and Tomes here which if you don't have a use for them yourself you can vendor them for a couple hundred (or even a thousand for some tomes) plat.
In closing, Field of Scale is an amazing place to grind some extra AAs or even some levels in this level range.
If you are struggling with this location or any other location around your level I have a few things that you could do to hopefully fix that. First and foremost you will want to upgrade your gear if you're still using Defiant Gear. There are a ton of Attunable items that you can find in The Bazaar, I recommend you buy the ones that are upgrades and equip them. If you want some help finding these items I highly recommend you use my Bazaar Gear Buying Guide (65+). The second and probably most important thing you can do is get all of the important AAs for your Class. To figure out what AAs are the most important AAs to get I recommend you read over my Everquest AA Placement Guide.
With better gear and all of the important AAs you will notice a gigantic difference in your character and what they are capable of.

This zone will easily take you to level 80 and if you can't find a group. I highly recommend that while you're leveling up to 80 you also do some of the more important AAs. By the time you reach level 80 you should have at least 750 to 900 AAs. You will need at the bare minimum at least 600 to continue following this leveling guide. Trust me, AAs are extremely important, you're about useless without them. Anyway, let's continue on with the leveling guide!
Alright so let's say you screwed up and you need to grind out a bunch of AAs but you want to know where is best to do it. Well aside from Field of Scale there are three other really good places I have found to grind out AA during this crisis. These places are Oceangreen Hills, Oceangreen Village and Bloody Kithicor. Below are links to each of these guides!
And then additional places to level and a return to the Dragonscale Hills Leveling Guide link.
