PoP Everquest Farming Locations

           Farming in Everquest is a highly subjective and ever changing aspect of the game. One week a location might be hot and the items you get selling off the shelfs and another week you might be unable to sell anything you farm from that area. The areas that I mention on these pages are locations that I know of which can be used for farming. It'll be up to you to determine whether or not they're good on your server and/or whether or not you'll be able to handle the location.

           There's also two different types of farming locations. You have some locations which make you raw plat and locations which you'll farm for items that you have to sell in The Bazaar or to other players in order to turn a decent profit. You'll need to keep this in mind when you choose one of the farming locations on this page.

           Some of these locations have links which will take you to a page with additional information on them. If you'd like to learn more about each of these individual locations I do recommend that you follow the links provided. Sometimes they take you to the Leveling Guide entry for that location and other times they take you to a Farming Location entry which I made just for that area.

 

Farming Locations 20 - 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.

Shadeweaver's Thicket (Field Killing) Solo, Semi-social - By the Paludal zoneline in Shadweaver's Thicket (nearby the cave entrance up on the hill) you will find skeletons called "a lesser shade" they are extremely low level and can be killed with ease. These guys drop Shadeling Silk which can be used in Tailoring as well as Swirling Shadows which is the primary item you're going to be after here. The Swirling Shadows can net you some decent PP in the baz for being an item dropped in this level range.

Rallic Pack (Misc) solo, semi-social - Farming materials to craft Rallic Packs is a pretty good way to make money for lower level players. You can even craft the packs yourself if you'd like to cut out the middle man and just sell the packs! You'll need Perfect Owlbeat Pelts, Shadeling Silk, and some other vendor purchased stuff. For farming Shadeling Silk I recommend you check out the location just above this one in Shadeweaver's Thicket. As far as the Perfect Owlbear Pelts go, Hollowshade Moor is definitely your best bet. Check vendors in the zone too incase any noobie Vah Shir vendored them.

 

Farming Locations 30 - 40

           Many locations have been redacted from this section in an effort to make this guide less verbose. If you'd like to see more farming locations (and easier ones) I recommend that you use my Classic Farming Guide as well as the Velious Farming Guide. They'll have locations designed for players without any gear and whom are truly just starting out.

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.

Marus Seru Rockhoppers (Field Killing) Solo, Mostly Antisocial - This location is one of the earliest spots for you to farm Rockhopper Hides. These hides are used in raising your Tailoring skill and will be sought by players for many many expansions to come.

 

Farming Locations 40 - 50

           During this level range I would strongly recommend the Rathe Hill Giants if you need immediate plat or you hit up the Cyclops in Ocean of Tears too. The OoT Cyclops will have the added benefit of also giving you EXP while you hunt them up until at least level 46 at which point it'll really start to decline.

           If you'd like some different ideas on locations to farm I recommend you head back to my Classic Farming Guide or Velious Farming Guide. Both of those guides will have some different locations than what you see mentioned here.

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!

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 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.

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!

 

Farming Locations 50 - 60

           This is the level range that things will really start to open up for you with different options for farming. If you're a solo player almost everything mentioned in this section will be too difficult for you. I'd recommend you use the previous section & even the section before that to come up with different locations to farm.

           Additionally many locations have been redacted from this Farming Guide. I'd recommend you check my Classic and Velious Farming Guides for different ideas that aren't mentioned here. Especially if you find these farming locations too difficult for your level, you might want to try an earlier expansion where things are easier.

           Boxers or players well geared will be able to easily handle all of the locations mentioned below.

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.

Kael Drakkel - Boxer/Group - This zone has an extremely large level spread and you can basically farm where ever you'd like in the entire place. There's nameds for you to kill spread out across the entire zone and all the frost giants have a chance of dropping armor pieces used in Thurgadin Group Armor Quests as well as different items you can sell in The Bazaar.

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!

The Deep (Field Killing) Boxer/Group Koxiux the Imperceptible - This isn't neccessarily a camp you can make a lot of plat off of but it is an amazing camp I felt worth mentioning because it's one of the earliest Shrink clickies, Wand of Imperceptibility, that I know of in the game. This is a must for anyone whose a big fat Ogre just because they're better tanks or really anyone who plays an excessively tall race.

Umbral Plains (Field Killing) Group/Boxer/Solo - This zone is definitely one of the best locations added in Luclin for both XP and loot. The mobs here hit very hard when you compare them to non Luclin content and have a ton of HP so I wouldn't recommend this location if you're under geared, under leveled or no AAs. You will get a ton of vendor drops here as well as decent NO DROP armor pieces that are on par with Classic Planar Gear. On top of those goodies you'll also find many Luclin spells and lots of really good gear that has no level recommendation on it.

Here are some examples of the loot that you can get in Umbral Plains: Wretched Pauldrons, Skull Marked Shield, Dream Weaver Webshield, Crown of the Hive, Gantru Charm, Flesh Eater's Eye, Vah Shir Skin Robe, Helm of Raldukan, Hive Fiend's Brain and much more - this is just the tip of the iceberg!

Acrylia Caverns (Dungeon Crawl) Group/Boxer - The guide I have written for this place is ancient but still has some useful information. The area outside the castle can be done by a smaller and lower level force than the castle. I'm sure you're used to the routine by now, kill in the lower level area if you're LFG/low on numbers and if you can push into the castle for better xp and loot! The vendor trash here is pretty valuable and the XP is phenomenal. Probably the best of the X-pac!

Mons Letalis (Field Killing) Boxer - This location is arguably the best spot in the entire game for you to farm Rockhoppers for their hides. This zone is rather difficult though - there's lots of enemies that patrol around everywhere and they have a rather large agro radius too.

 

Farming Locations 60 - 65

Plane of Justice (Foraging) Solo - Plane of Justice has Planar Fruit as a foragable item which is useful for people looking to raise their baking.

Plane of Innovation (Foraging) Solo - Much like Plane of Justice, mentioned above, PoI also has an item which you can forage up called Clockwork Grease. It's a rare component used in Tinkering. Plane of Innovation also has a TON of different Tinkering materials that drop from the enemies in the zone. It's worth it to save their TS mats to sell in The Bazaar.

Plane of Valor (Field Killing) Group/Boxer Social Zone - There are a few different things to farm Plane of Valor for Hero Parts, Metallic Liquid, and Brick of Valorium. Hero Parts will net you the fastest and most reliable money out of all the Tradeskill mats that drop here. You might struggle selling the rest.

Bastion of Thunder (Dungeon Crawl) Group/Boxer Social Zone - There's a lot of different ways to make money in the Bastion of Thunder. You can kill the Jords or Mephits for meat which will help you raise Baking. You can also kill the named enemies like Gaukr Sandstorm and Oreen Wavecrasher in the hopes of getting Ornate Armor Patterns to drop.

Plane of Nightmare (Dungeon Crawl) Group/Boxer Social Zone - The Hobgoblin cave in northern Plane of Nightmare is a great supply of different types of Tradeskill materials, one of them being Brick of Nightmare Iron. This might not be a bad spot to farm for you if you can handle the cave & don't mind slowly but surely selling the TS mats you farm here.

           You will want to keep an eye out for the following items in ALL Planes of Power zones. They're used for Class Spells & while the Parchment/Words may be NO DROP the spells you get from completing the quest are not and can be sold to other players. Once Gates of Discord unlocks on your server these three items won't be worth anything since PoP spells will be sold by the vendors in PoK.

Ethereal Parchment

Spectral Parchment

Glyphed Rune Word

           In addition to the items mentioned above you're also going to want to keep an eye out for any Ornate Armor Patterns you come across. Unlike the previously mentioned items Ornate Armor Patterns only drop from named enemies and they are useful for many expansions later than PoP as they give you some of the best armor for this era.

           This is why farming named enemies in any PoP zone isn't a bad idea if you're looking to make some extra plat. I'd recommend you find a name that you can easily kill from my list of Ornate Armor Pattern Named Drops and get to farming! Keep in mind that some patterns aren't worth much at all. Ornate Silk Helm, Boots & Ornate Leather Helm & Boots are four that come to mind which all sell for 1/4 of what the others sell for.

Drunder Fortress of Zek (Dungeon Crawl/Field Killing) - This zone drops a wide assortment of Tradeskill materials which are used in combines like Bloodmetal Earring of Engagement. This Earring is a decent piece of Jewelry that makes an upgrade for most Melee Characters that don't have raid gear.

 

**If you're in a raiding Guild and Elemental Planes flagged**

           Those of you out there lucky enough to be a part of a raiding guild that is flagged for the PoP Elemental Planes will find additional places that are worth farming. Note: these locations will be even more difficult than the previously mentioned zones and aren't for solo players. Some people may be able to solo the locations I am about to mention but I'd recommend you be a boxer if you choose to farm here.

 

Plane of Fire (Field/Dungeon Crawl) Moderately Social - One of the best things for players to farm in Plane of Fire is Brick of Molten Ore which is used for people looking to raise their Tinkering Skills. The Brick of Molten Ore mostly drops off the Jopal enemies which you find in Field 1 and the cave connecting Field 1 to City 1.

Plane of Water (Dungeon Crawl) Antisocial - This zone will be a total nightmare to navigate for anyone who really loathes underwater fighting. Those of you out there who aren't too bothered by it will find great rewards for hunting in this zone. There's an assortment of Ore, Bow Staffs, Deepwater Ink and other goodies that drop from this zone which help raise a multitude of different Tradeskills like Fletching and Alchemy.
