Lower Guk - Post Mercenary Leveling Guide
Lower Guk - the original end game zone!! To this day you'll still be able to get some solid adventuring out of this once hot spot. Since this zone was part of original Everquest the mobs are tuned to how people were geared at that time which means these are some of the weakest mobs you can find for this level range.
Despite their weakness these mobs do drop a decent amount of plat with each kill which is primarily the reason this zone is listed. Depending on what level you are and what your gear situation looks like you'll either want to do the southern portion of Lower Guk or the Northern portion.
The southern area on the map with all of the tunnels is the safest and easiest place for lower levels to solo. In this area you'll find Evil Eye, Patriarch, Minotaur Elder and a bit further south there's a Froglok Noble. The further south you go (once you come to living frogloks) the enemies will start increasing in level and density.
If you'd like to take some risks you can keep going south and killing living Frogloks until the Froglok King. or you could move up north into the undead froglok area where you'll be getting more than one enemy per pull. If they con dark blue to your merc he shouldn't have any trouble with them though.
You can stay in Lower Guk all the way to level 50 if you want to - it'll slow down a bunch in the late 40s though so I would recommend you head to City of Mist at some point in the 40s if you decided to start with Lower Guk.
- The best way to reach Lower Guk is by traveling through Innothule Swamp and through Upper Guk.
- This zone gets revamped during Hardcore Heritage which occurs during the spring/summer months.
- If you're having trouble managing your Inventory Space I highly recommend you invest in some Extraplanar Trade Satchels which are 32 Slot Tradeskill Bags. Alternatively you could also buy Unexpanded Tailored Backpacks as well. Though, the Backpacks will likely be more expensive. Follow the links provided to learn more about each item.
- If you need more plat while leveling I strongly recommend you check out my How to make more plat while leveling by Bartering Guide. It'll give you a list of all the different items you should be keeping an eye out for to Barter/Sell!
