Western Wastes - Velious Leveling Guide
The Western Wastes is the toughest outdoor zone in Velious (and the game up until this point)! There are dozens of different named dragons that wander around this zone, some of them regular named enemies and some of them raid targets! If you're out here with a group it's important you con every named before you pull it to make sure it's not a boss!
In between the two large scars in the center of the map is where you'll find most of the named dragons wandering around. Also inside the nothern most scar is where a bunch of the longer respawn raid dragons can be found. A lot of the dragons here drop Talismans with + to all stats as well as some of the more rare level 60 spells.
The safest places for you to hunt in this zone are at the northern most end and southern most end. You'll be able to grab enemies and pull them away from the 'danger zone' rather easily from these locations.... You just need to be very careful when pulling!
