Veksar - Post Mercenary Leveling Guide
Veksar is another location that's good for players 45 - 60. There are tons of mobs in this zone since it has such a wide level spread and they hit much harder than you would expect for other mobs on the Kunark continent. The reason for this is Veksar was actually added in LoY rather than in Kunark so you should expect the mobs to be on par with PoP mobs for difficulty.
The Goblins at the zone in are the easiest mobs in the entire zone and you should hang out in this area until the 50s. Move further in only once you're prepared and you should expect pulls of 2 or 3 maybe even 4 or 5 in some of the extreme cases. The closer you get to level 60 the weaker your tank merc will become as well so it's important that while you're here you start helping your merc kill the enemies as much as possible.
What I mean is until now it was easy to just sit back and watch the Tank Merc do all the heavy lifting. If you're still playing like this you're going to need to gradually shift into actually playing now as things start ramping up in difficulty.
I'd actually recommend you leave Veksar one you make it into the late 50s or early 60s. There's better places to level that aren't as risky as the higher level area in Veksar is. Some of the enemies in this section (especially the nameds) are over conned for their level - some are in their low 70s even.
If you're reading this and boxing one or two characters then that changes things a bit. Veksar would be significantly easier and so far out of the way for normal players that you wouldn't need to worry about much zone traffic. I'd recommend you stay in Veksar if this is the case instead of moving onto Plane of Fire or some other zone.
As with many of the other zones recommended for this level range, Veksar is a fantastic place to increase the size of your wallet while you level up. The loot the nameds drop here may be useless to you but it vendors for a couple hundred plat so you'll want to grab it anyway.
Loot all the gems you come across and as much of the stackable vendor trash you can hold. We need the plat!!
- Veksar is located inside the underwater building in the center of Lake of Ill Omen. The fastest way here is by taking the Firiona Vie stone in Plane of Knowledge and hoofing it the rest of the way.
- Despite this zone being on the continent of Kunark - the mobs here are not as easy as other Kunark enemies. Be prepared as they hit about as hard as PoP mobs do!!
- 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!
