Adventurer's Guide to Leveling

From Project 1999 Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

I was always curious if the true adventurer at heart could travel the whole of Norrath as they leveled without taking far too long to progress. This could be the answer! [1]

Here are the rules. Suggest a single zone and spot in said zone to level a single level after 10. This zone can only be used once, so if you see it on the list think of something different! The goal is to make a list of the ultimate journey where you and a friend can go and adventure while gaining a level in a different zone for each level from 10-60. We can do this, there's over 80 zones in Classic/Kunark!

No speculation, you actually have to have gained a level at a reasonable pace in the area you suggested with a un-twinked duo/group. For instance, a bad example would be suggesting City of Mist from level 24-25. Make it feasible so that a new player could take a friend to your spot and gain a level there. Can we create the ultimate leveling adventure? Will update with posts, I will start:

Thats pretty much it for old world.. Using Kunark is cheating IMO.

Orruar

I have an alternate progression which doesn't require much travel between the zones, particularly in the earlier levels when travel is more dangerous and difficult. Once you get to 35+, travel is easier and so the gaps become larger. Many of these are probably not ideal, but I'm pretty sure they're all doable with a solid soloer or a decent duo/trio. Certainly some will be slow.
