Per-Level Hunting Guide

From Project 1999 Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Now with ____ XP hunting spots. For places to get loot instead see the Treasure Hunting Guide.

See also: Recommended Levels and ZEM List


Use the class/monster/level filters below to control which hunting spots are shown. You can click a button a second time to "un-check" it.

Page Loading ... You should only see this temporarily (unless you have disabled Javascript or the page is broken).



Many guides tell you exactly where to go to gain experience, but this one tells you your options instead. The guide is for all classes/levels/races, but mainly focuses on soloing. All of its hunting spots contain monsters that /consider as blue within their specified level range, and are sorted by their range.

Improving the Guide

This is a wiki, so if you have anything to add or correct please click on the "edit" tab at the top of the page. A few seconds of your time can help make the guide better for everyone. See the Template:HuntingGuideSpot page if you have any questions about the template used to create hunting spot entries on this page, and see Editing The Hunting Guide for a walkthrough of adding a new entry to the page (it's easy!)

To Do

  • The guide currently lacks many Shadow Knight spots, but [1] has a bunch that could be added

Experience Modifiers

On 03/25/2020, the staff have adjusted the ZEM values for many zones, but what original values those were changed from continues to not be given. [2]

Necros can solo here 5-8 but half the bears will turn green at 8. Lots of spiders in area too for crafters. If you stay on road friendly shammies will sometimes SOW you.
05-8 04-7 Nektulos Forest Undead Pillar/Wizard Spires a skeleton, a decaying skeleton, a zombie and a lesser mummy 100% Cla Easy to solo as a necro, Numb the Dead will let you single pull everything to break. The wizard spires have more wanderers so is a little more dangerous. Undead Pillar is close to zone. Occasional red a lesser mummy may need to be trained to guards at bridge, easier at pillar than spires.
- 05-10 East Commonlands ? Orcs, Dervish Cutthroats 100% Cla Save Deathfist Slashed Belts for Deathfist Slashed Belts (Quest); players sitting in the tunnel (auctioning) will often give free buffs

6-11 6-11 Befallen Entrance Assorted 213% Cla Be careful of the named mob Gynok Moltor, his PH is the monster that spawns at the front and path around the dungeon

06-07 04-07 Steamfont Kobold camps Kobolds 100% Cla

09-18 09-18 Kurn's Tower ? Assorted 200% Kun Skeletons are not social

Hunting Spots 10-14

Solo Level Range Group Level Range Zone Area Monsters Exp Mod* Era Image Notes (on Class/Faction/Drops/Quests/etc.)
10 09-10 Nektulos Forest Ruins near East Commonlands Zombies 100% Cla Npc a zombie.png Good for CLR/NEC. Undead, easy to solo as a Necro at 8 (and maybe earlier, as Numb the Dead allows single pulls)
10-14 8+ Western Karana #3, #6, and #16 Bandits 100% Cla Good for CLR/ENC. Save Bandit Sashes for Bandit Sashes (Quest); Clerics may need some twinking to solo these
10-15 - Upper Guk Near Heartspiders (map location 18) Map Icon.png and Near steps to scryer Map Icon.png a swampwater crocodile 159% Cla Npc a swampwater crocodile.png Good for ALL. Four spawns of swampwater crocodiles near the heartspiders by map location 18, non-aggro and non-social. One spawns in a small cubby, one wanders in the water, and two more spawn in the water near the stairs down to froglok scryer at map location 15. One of the spawns in that latter room is consistently higher level than the others.
12-17 10-16 Lake Rathetear Bandit Camp (map location 7) Map Icon.png A bandit 100% Cla Any race, good /neutral preferred. Next to the Rathe Mountain zone are Beta Neutral ogres you can sell to as well as 7 bandits on a 6:40 respawn. The long walk to this spot is worth it as a solo camp for the moderate drops + red sashes for the Qeynos turn in quest. Excellent spot to knock out 12-17 if you push it.
10-15 10-15 Estate of Unrest Entrance area (outside house) Assorted ("yard trash") 173% Cla
10-15 10-15 Southern Desert of Ro ? Assorted animals 100% Cla Most animals are non-social

10-12 8-11 Qeynos Catacombs Thug Camp, area 17 then area 15 Map Icon.png A_thug, then A smuggler (Qeynos Aqueducts). ? Cla
11-13 9-13 Butcherblock Mountains Chess board (#7) an undead bishop, an undead pawn, etc. 100% Cla Good for CLR/NEC/ROG. All undead, watch out for an undead king (he is much higher level). Rogues may require twinking
11-15 10-15 Butcherblock Mountains Goblin camps (#5, #6, #15, #22) Goblins 100% Cla Will need ability to split goblins if soloing, watch out for Goblin Shaman/Wizards
11-15 10-15 Butcherblock Mountains Bandit camp (#12) Dwarf bandits 100% Cla All bandits can be solo pulled easily, some have short patrols
11-15 11-15 Northern Desert of Ro ? Scarabs 100% Cla If you ask nicely sellers in East Commonlands may buff you
8-15 8-15 Befallen Past the First locked door Assorted 213% Cla Need to have the Splintered Wooden Key from the a shadowknight (Dark Elf Male)
11-15 - Erud's Crossing slightly off the west coast Map Icon.png A Zombie Sailor ? Cla Good for AFK, CLR.
11-15 ? Timorous Deep ? Streamer fish 100% Kun Can't bind in zone
12-15 ? Steamfont North of Lesser Faydark zoneline Map Icon.png 4x a Minotaur Slaver ? Cla Good for ENC/MAG. 4 static spawns that can be single pulled, close to zone line, you can also grab the occasional nearby a harpy or a giant rat
12-16 ? West Commonlands a willowisp and a Dervish Cutthroat (and others) ? Cla Good for ENC. Charm a willowisp and use it to kill Dervish Cutthroats (they won't be able to hurt it because it's immune to non-magic weapons)
12-16 - Erud's Crossing Whole island Will o' Wisps ? Cla Good for ENC/SHM. Wisps drop Lightstones and Greater Lightstones which can be sold (for ≈1p/≈4.5p) or turned in for the quests Research Aid/Evil Research; if you kill anything except wisps you can easily agro the entire island
12-16 The Overthere Southeast of outpost/North of chasm Cockatrices, Succulents, a sabertooth cat, a sabertooth tigress, etc. 100% Kun Lots of animals, which would normally be good for Druids, except that they have abnormally high resist rates
12-16 - Ocean of Tears Sisters Island (#10) Sister of Erollisi ? Cla Good for SHM, evil characters. Vendor on same island; lowers Clerics of Tunare/Faydarks Champions/King Tearis Thex/Soldiers of Tunare faction
12-18 - Lesser Faydark Nybright Sister Camp Nybright Sisters 100% Cla Good for DRU/ENC. Kill Kayla Nybright first to break camp (Harmony or similar agro reducers helps)

13-15 - Western Karana Small settlement in Northwest corner of zone Map Icon.png Guard Gregor and Misty Storyswapper 100% Cla Npc guard gregor.png Npc misty storyswapper.png
Good for NEC, evil characters. At level 13 Guard Gregor is blue and Misty Storyswapper can be white or yellow, but either version should be soloable. Both are on a six minute timer. Watch out for Guard McCluskey, as he rarely paths by and will assist (but if you give him a couple minutes he'll eventually path away). Anyone (even Iksar) can sell to Silna Weaver, behind building.
Lowers factions: Antonius Bayle, Guards of Qeynos, Merchants of Qeynos, Knights of Truth, and League of Antonican Bards
14-16 14-16 Kerra Island Entrance a kerran awrat and a kerran mamluk 120% Cla Good for ENC. Kerrans tend to come in pairs, which is great for charming; if you're not charming you will want Harmony, Soothe or a similar spell; avoid the huts to the left/right of the entrance: they contain merchants (who don't give XP), and aggroing anything near the hut will aggro them too; hurts Kerra Isle faction; Kerrans conveniently drop food/drink
14-19 14-19 East Karana Gnolls in the southwest a gnoll reaver and an undead reaver 100% Cla Good for AFK, SHM. Great solo camp; fast respawn and plenty of mobs almost all standing alone.
14-19 - Everfrost Plains/Tundra a mammoth calf 100% Cla Npc a mammoth calf.png Good for DRU/SHM.
14-19 - Lake of Ill Omen ? a sabertooth cat, a sabertooth tigress 87% Kun Good for DRU/SHM.

15-20 15-20 Kithicor Forest Camp high up on the West wall, South end, and pull Shraloks from that corner Map Icon.png Shralok Orcs 100% Cla Good for MAG. Magicians can start here at 14, though it's risky; save Orc Scalps for Orc Scalp Collecting quest; stay high on the wall to avoid the ghoul that paths by and the a kodiak bear that spawns near; starting in the Plane of Hate era, at night (in game) the zone has high level undead
15 15 Kurn's Tower Main floor Assorted 200% Kun Good for NEC.
15-18 - South Karana The plains area (ie. most of the zone) an adult elephant, an elephant, an elephant calf 100% Cla
An Elephant.JPG
Good for BRD/DRU/SHM.
15-20 15-20 Befallen Second and Third Floor Skeletons, Mummies, Ghouls, Necromancers 213% Cla Good for melee (who can take a beating from multiple enemies) and classes who can control undead. High chance of adds, but high ZEM. Be careful of Necromancers, who can be a little more difficult (adds a pet and DoTs).
15-20 15-20 Highpass Hold ? Orcs and Gnolls 107% Cla
15-20 15-20 Permafrost Near zone-in Ice Goblins 120% Cla Npc an ice goblin.png Good for MNK. Mobs start turning green at 18, but XP is still really good even then. Mobs are usually in pairs, so you may want to bring both to the zone line, kill one, zone, then come back (if you don't have CC).
15-21 15-21 Oasis of Marr Various, including #2 Caimans and Crocodiles 100% Cla Good for DRU/ENC. Avoid higher level Deepwater Crodcodiles
16-21 15-20 Gorge of King Xorbb Near the Runnyeye zone line Muddites, Minotaurs, Beholders 100% Cla Zone line lets you easily zone out (but has goblins). Avoid central areas with significantly higher level beholders. Muddites and minotaurs tend to be easier, while beholders are a lot harder (they have an enchanter pet and can nuke hard if you can't interrupt). Use the walls to navigate the zone without picking up lots of agro.
16-21 - Gorge of King Xorbb Near the East Karana zone line Map Icon.png A Chasm Minotaur, a Gorge Minotaur, a Muddite Minor, a Muddite Elder 100% Cla Npc a muddite elder.png Npc a gorge minotaur.png Good for NEC. Pull from the three canyons, starting with the East, then North, then West. Avoid the beholders (they're much more powerful), which tend to come from East tunnel. One minotaur can spawn in the space between the canyons, so pull to the hill slightly farther back to avoid having him spawn on you. If you avoid killing Goblins you could eventually get enough faction with them to be able to use their bank in Runnyeye (but it will take lots of killing here)
16-17 - Erud's Crossing Whole island Kerrans ? Cla Lowers Kerra Isle faction
16-19 15-19 Lavastorm Mountains Near zone-in from Nektulos Forest or Najena a fire elemental, a lava crawler, a lava basilisk, a Rock Dervish, etc. 100% Cla Good for ROG/SHD/WAR. Pull to zone-in area to avoid adds; With the exception of a fire elemental and a fire imp most mobs are not threatening to attack.
16-18 - Toxxulia Forest On the way to Paineel Pixies 100% Cla Pixies are non-social
16-20 14-18 The Overthere Mudhole (Semi Dry Lake) Cockatrices, Succulents, Sabre-toothed Tigers, etc. 100% Kun From boat keep water on your left until you get to the hills, then go right to the Mudhole. Watch for Sarnaks, as they are social and will agro.
16-20 14-18 Upper Guk Near the zone-in 166% Cla
16-40 - Paineel Multiple locations Guards 100% Pai Good for characters with Amiable or higher Heretics faction. Has no faction hit, each mob drops 10pp in loot per kill. Heavily camped, some guards have up to 24min respawn timers.
17-21 - Western Plains of Karana Field at #10 Map Icon.png Scarecrows 100% Cla Good for CLR/NEC. Scarecrows don't run and are undead, so you can use Sense the Dead to find the closest one. They don't agro, can very rarely proc "fear" (stun), and they sometimes drop Sack of Hay for the nearby Gathering Grain quest (which gives an extra 1% XP or less). Watch out for werewolves and (during the era when they appear) swarmlings and The Swarm Mother, as they path through the field periodically .
17-21 - Dagnor's Cauldron NE corner Sandbar Serpents 100% Cla Good for ALL. In the NE corner of the zone, three serpents on 2:00 timers spawn as placeholders for Jetsam, Flotsam, and Squallslither within sight of each other. This may be the fastest spawning camp in the game — these mobs will respawn as fast as you can kill them for theoretically zero downtime. Occasionally, Barnacle Bones or a PH will wander through.
18-22 17-22 Rathe Mountains #3 a kodiak bear 100% Cla
Npc a kodiak bear.png
Good for DRU/RNG/SHM. Avoid the Unkempt Preservers when pulling (they will attack you if you attack the bears); if you have a spell like Harmony you can also kill Blinde the Cutpurse in nearby area #6
18-25 17-24 Lake Rathetear Aviak islands Aviak guards 100% Cla Good for NEC/SHM. Aviaks are faction-less, but social. There are seven aviak guards total in the west part of the zone (near the Arena). Levitate speeds things up a ton by being able to scoot across water
19 12-19 Oasis of Marr Orc Highway Orcs 100% Cla Good for ENC.
19-21 17-19 Kerra Island ? Kerrans 120% Cla Good for ENC.
19-23 - East Karana Throughout zone a war wolf, a lion patriarch, a rogue lion, a spirit stalker, a dark stalker, a gorge hound, a griffawn 100% Cla Angelhawk-ekarana.jpg Good for DRU. The Druid Charm Kiting Guide by Angelhawk has a great map of where to hunt
19-24 - The Overthere Mudhole (Semi Dry Lake) Cockatrices, Succulents, Sabre-toothed Tigers, etc. 100% Kun From boat keep water on your left until you get to the hills, then go right to the Mudhole. Watch for Sarnaks, as they are social and will agro.

Npc a froglok gaz squire.png
20-23 Oasis a deepwater crocodile, a deepwater caiman 100% Cla
Npc a deepwater crocodile.png
Good for DRU.
20-24 - Stonebrunt Mountains Kejekan Mines, #2 Map Icon.png a kejekan miner x4 100% War
A kejekan miner.png
Good for fear kiting. Extremely safe camp. The Kejek in the village do not see invis, and are indifferent to all but evil races. Multiple vendors in town. No creatures roam through or path across it's spacious mines, and the 4 miners working away within are able to be solo pulled without harmony. Kejek frequently drop food & drink, and these miners have the additional chance to drop a Large Brick of High Quality Ore which sells for ~17pp.

There is a large, completely uninhabited portion of the mine behind a wall of rocks perfect for fear kiting. These rocks can be opened like doors (don't ask me why, I don't know) with a simple click. A good method for fear kiting is to pull miners back to this uninhabited portion, then proceeding to do all of the usual fear kiting stuff. Despite the odd geometry of the mine, I've yet to ever have a creature fall through the floor on me.

Please note, that whilst the miners will not fall through the floor in the tunnel, if they are pulled up or down the tunnel and you move out of line-of-sight they will warp above the tunnel and pull roaming mobs from above down onto you. Pathing of feared mobs did not cause this behaviour, only when breaking line of sight.

Adventurers seeking additional enemies to slay will find the Kejek guarding the main gate satisfactory. With care, they can be single pulled up to the mountaintops -- just be sure to /con them first. Groups or Enchanters will enjoy the static pairs of a kejekan archer perched outside of the village's walls. Lowers Kejek Village & Peace Keepers.
20 - 24 - West Freeport -107, -430 Map Icon.png Trissa Whistlesong 100% Cla
Npc trissa whistlesong.png
Good for AFK, NEC, evil characters. Lazy single kill every 6m40s. Lowers Guards of Qeynos, Knights of Truth, League of Antonican Bards.
20-24 - Kurn's Tower Start at top, work down to the lower tunnels Greater Scalebones, Lesser Icebones, Lesser Charbones 200% Kun Good for MNK/NEC. Skeletons are not social, when you finish just zone out/in and repeat; if you've never killed any Burynai then it's very easy to get to the basement, but if you've killed even one then Invisibility to Undead won't be enough
20-24 17-22 Timorous Deep Elven Outpost Docks An elven ranger, An elven scout, An elven war scout 100% Kun
Npc an elven scout.png
Good for NEC, evil characters. Lowers Inhabitants of Firiona Vie and Greater Faydark factions. Mobs have lvl 9 ranger spells only. Drops moderate coin + rusty/ rare bronze weapons. Beta Neutral vendor Micus Benoren in a hut on the beach near the docks sells to anyone. Excellent solo camp w/ minimal risk. Good mobs to recover Indigo Brotherhood faction from.
22-27 - Lake Rathetear location 2, near South Karana zone line Map Icon.png A greater zombie, An exhumed gnoll 100% Cla
Npc an exhumed gnoll.png
Good for CLR/MAG. All undead, but only at night: during the day there's only lower-level gnolls (see below for undead in nearby Rathe Mountains); because the mobs are close Soothe/Harmony helps, but characters at the higher-end of the level range can pull singles without it
22 - 23 - Rathe Mountains Findlegrob's Tower, #7 Map Icon.png dry bone skeletons 100% Cla Good for CLR. Undead, you may have to clear green skeletons/zombies to make the dry bone ones spawn
22 - 24 - North Karana -3801, 1160 Map Icon.png Cordelia Minster 100% Cla
Npc cordelia minster.png
Good for NEC, evil characters. Lazy single kill every 7 minutes. She wanders northwest of the gypsy camp, but once you kill her you can just wait for her respawn(every 6m40s) at the Wizard spires; wait a little north of them to avoid Guard Fredrick, who paths through. Lowers Guards of Qeynos, Knights of Truth, League of Antonican Bards.
22 - 25 - Najena 80, -58 Map Icon.png a skeleton 159% Cla Good for PAL, CLR. Individual spawns of a skeleton that are quite safe, free from adds, and frequently drop small ringmail gloves and small ringmail bracelet for vendoring. Skeletons drop a piece for Paladin quest The Sword of Nobility. Several spawns exist, but the most accessible is marked.
22-30 20-30 Misty Thicket west of the Great Wall, just east of the orc camp along the north zone wall. Slaythe 100% Cla
Npc slaythe.png
Good for DRU. Slaythe is spawned by asking Bronin Higginsbot, on top of the southernmost Wall Tower in Misty Thicket, for a 'small favor'. After that run north along the west side of the Great Wall until you reach the north zone wall, where Slaythe is waiting. Kill the frog and and turn his leg into Bronin Higginsbot for The Bloody Shank (quest), then you can respawn Slaythe.

Requires indifferent faction with the Rivervale Rogue faction, DeepPockets (wolf form works); Bronin will not spawn Slaythe at lower faction. Killing Slaythe lowers Frogloks of Kunark, while turning his leg in raises Highpass Guards, Carson McCabe, Merchants of Highpass, Corrupt Qeynos Guards, Freeport Militia

VERY good, safe and steady EXP. Druids (with wolf form and levitate, to jump off the stumps west of the wall to get to the top of the tower and respawn) can do this especially quickly. Just nuke/kite (unsnared) down the wall, avoiding the guards, and finish him off near the tower for a quick respawn.
20-26 - Najena Crystal Room (#4) Map Icon.png A Magician 173% Cla
Npc a magician.png
Good for MAG. This room has 3 magicians which you can split just by using line of sight. Edge down the left side of the hall until you can "see" the right mob and pull. Repeat on the right side. These magicians drop Mage focus item components: A Broom, A Shovel, A Stein, & A Torch (although not initially in Classic ).

At 26 I was getting 6% of level for 1 Mage and pet. Respawn is 18:30. In that time you can also kill the 2 Skeletons just in the cave before the crystal room and two possible tentacle terrors in the entrance room (or some spiders not too far from the skeletons).

Alternatively in Classic you can wait on the /list for Drelzna, as this room is within the /list range.
20-28 20-28 South Karana "KFC" (Aviak town near Lake Rathe zoneline) Aviaks 100% Cla Good for BRD/SHM. Some races (not Barbarians) can use the merchant at the top level

Necromancers can do Ulrich starting at level 27 or 28 (even though he's yellow and it's a bit risky) by fear kiting him.

Ulrich becomes a blue con (and becomes soloable by non-Necros) at 31. Guard Donlan also paths through village and you can kill him (but he lowers Corrupt Qeynos Guard faction).

Facing back the way you came, the scholar straight ahead, and the two closest on the right Map Icon.png, are all single-pullable. They are undead but run, so pull them all the way back into the exit hall. Many scholars charm you (and bring you back to their spawn point, which is often a death sentence); Clerics should intersperse every nuke with a stun to avoid this. Have a CR plan, because even if you are bound outside, you or your rezzer will need a way to get the level #2 key (eg. make a corpse on level #1 with a backup key, or camp an alt nearby who can farm the key).

Pull up to the pillar to get them out of the water.

Npc a haze golem.png
Golem levels: Fog > Mist > Vapor > Haze
44-49 40-48 Eastern Wastes Mercenary Ruins an ogre mercenary, a wooly rhino, A Kromrif Prison Guard 113% Vel
Good for ENC/BRD/DRU. A way to split 3 mobs is highly recommended. The roaming Ulthork and walruses social with each other, but the rhinos are passive and don't social with anything. Alliance or training on Snowfang Gnolls before coming here so you're not KoS to the Ulthork is recommended. a kromrif prison guard make for excellent charmed pets. The surrounding orcs won't social with them, so simply lulling one and pulling the other away a bit > rooting it will work for setting up a charm. Another hitch is Warden Bruke has a chance of spawning instead of A Kromrif Prison Guard. Warden Bruke is higher level, has high MR, and will spawn three guards upon engagement.
44-49 40-45 Eastern Wastes #4, Frost Giant Fort Frost Giants 100% Vel
Npc a frost giant.png
Good for DRU/WIZ. Druids will find the Luminescent Staff handy here; see this guide for further details on this spot

40-46 - Lake Rathetear #15 on map Taia Lyfol 133% Cla Good for NEC,MAG,DRU. At 2672, -759 Map Icon.png you can find Taia Lyfol the 37 Paladin. She is on a 6 minute 40 second respawn timer (AFK XP spot). Will do paladin things like LoH if you don't fear or stay far away. Resists can be annoying at level 40, but get much better at 41+. The ogre camp near Rathe Mountains zone line sell food/water. The nearby 37 rogue Kanthurn used to be better but was buffed to ~4000 health in 11-19-22 patch.
44-48 Lake Rathetear area #6 on the map Punga, Trug, and Grud 133% Cla Good for MAG, perhaps more. Shamans all - Trug and Grud make pets. These mobs have *do* have faction and *do* assist.

45-50 - Rivervale Near Misty Thicket zone line Halfling guards 133% Cla Good for evil characters. To avoid nukers and GM-level NPCs stay away from Kithicor Forest zoneline; lowers Guardians of the Vale, Mayor Gubbin, Merchants of Rivervale, and Storm Reapers faction
45-50 - The Wakening Land area (south)east of Skyshrine entrance Panthers/haze panthers, tigeraptors 110% Vel Good for RNG. Can quad, need see invisibility to see the haze panthers and invisibility to avoid mercenaries/holgresh (often casters) while pulling
45-50 - The Wakening Land unicorn valley Unicorns 110% Vel Don't pull Lady Gelestial (higher level named), killing black unicorns raises white unicorn/Gelestial faction and killing white raises black/Lithiniath faction, black are higher level shadow knights who cast fear; avoid the corrupted unicorn in this area
45-52 - Felwithe ? High Elf Guards 133% Cla Good for NEC, SHD, evil characters. GREAT money (swords sell for 20p), but lowers Felwithe factions. Some guards are Paladins and can Lay on Hands, and if you're a pet class having a pet out will make them cast more: no pet = no stuns/lay on hands. You can bank through the wall even after lowering faction, and to sell you can drop transfer swords to a level 1 enchanter alt.
45-52 - Wakening Lands in the geonid tunnel directly west of dragon ring (#7), approximately -2800, -1100 Map Icon.png A Faerie Dragon lvl 38 to 42 110% Vel
Npc a faerie dragon.png
Good for SHM. One room has a 3 spawn spot to the right as you enter the cave. One mob can be single pulled the other two need to be broken. There is a fourth down the hall way from the tunnel entrance. Great for Shaman JBB killing. Drops Velious armor gems but lowers Tunarean Court faction
45-50 41-50 The Hole Entrance Elementals (Summoned) 171% Hol Lvl 39-40 and do not single pull. Named are level 50. See Wedar's Guide to The Hole for further information about The Hole
46 - Stonebrunt Mountains In the mountains Giant Panda 100% Vel Good for RNG. Pandas are fairly easy to kill (especially if fear-kited), but be careful about picking up nearby adds.
46-51 - The Wakening Land are near Kael giants 100% Vel lowers giant faction, raises dwarf/dragon faction; nameds drop various quest pieces
46-52 - Cobalt Scar ? Wyverns and cobalt drakes 100% Vel Good for BRD/DRU/WIZ. Often crowded; wyverns can be quad-kited, drakes root/rot-ed; drakes cast AE dispel for 600dmg every 24 seconds; avoid the two nameds that pop if you can (Yvolcarn and Azureake)

48-51 - Trakanon's Teeth Pained Soul Camp Map Icon.png Spectral keepers and Spectral Champions(Undead) 110% Kun
Npc pained soul.png
Good for CLR, NEC, SHD. 6m 40s respawn, with the most common being a Spectral keeper (Wizard that will nuke the heck out of you; stun them if you can). Rarely a Spectral Champion (Warrior with lots of HP) will spawn, and then extremely rarely a Pained Soul will spawn. This NPC drops a critical piece for the Rune of Scale (Key to Veeshan's Peak) quest, which can be sold as a multi-quest to other players for several thousand plat. If the camp is taken (it often is) the next spot on the list is close by.
47-50 45-50 Trakanon's Teeth Forest outside Sebilis. Spectral keepers (Undead) 110% Kun
Npc spectral keeper.png
Good for CLR/NEC/MAG. The forest and exterior of the ruins contain Spectral keepers: Wizards that nuke the heck out of you (keep them stunned if you can; an air pet is sufficient). There are also a few other Spectrals, eg. Spectral partisan.

Pull to the forest wall (opposite Sebilis ruins) to avoid adds. You can rest along the wall, and a confirmed AFK safe spot is the small hill behind the Iksar Treasure Hunter camp -1700, -5200 Map Icon.png.
47-50 47-50 Trakanon's Teeth Graveyard, in front of Emperor Ganak's mausoleum Map Icon.png Spectral keepers (Undead) 110% Kun
Npc spectral keeper.png
Good for CLR/NEC/MAG. The graveyard is full of just Spectral keepers (Wizards that nuke the heck out of you; keep them stunned if you can; an air pet is sufficient). The only exception is a single froglok vis knight, who wanders through the West end of the graveyard. At 51 the majority of keepers are light blue, but there are enough blues left that you can still get XP. By 54, the number of blues drops to a slim fraction, and the camp is best abandoned after obtaining 54.

An ideal pull spot (and also an AFK safe spot) is the area near the wall, at the East end of the graveyard just past the line of Iksar statues Map Icon.png. The equivalent area on the West is not safe, unless you move back from the graveyard and stay against the wall.
49-55 - High Keep ? Isabella Cellus, bards and nobles 150% Cla Good for BRD, ENC, SHD, evil characters. Lowers Coalition of Tradefolk, Coalition of Tradefolk Underground, Knights of Truth, and Merchants of Qeynos

50-53 - Plane of Mischief Forest Mushrooms 100%? Vel Good for SHD.
50-54 50-54 The Hole Entrance/Drop Down( pulling castle and rat jail) Elementals 133% Hol Good for SHD. Start at the entrance (and stay there if soloing as a Shadow Knight). Strong groups can drop down to the castle entrance but know that everyone will need a way out (Gate/OT hammer etc) as the crawl out of castle can beyond the abilities of a low 50's group without the correct composition.
50-59 50-59 Neriak Foreign Quarter Arena Ogres and Trolls 133% Cla Neriak Arena where to fight.png Good for SHM with Epic. See Neriak Arena (Hunting Spot) for more info

Npc guard k`jartan.png
Good for ENC. Pacify is required here to separate the guard spawns, as they are close together; guards always drop Small Round Shield, and sometimes (50%?) drop fine steel (eg. Fine Steel Short Sword)
- 50-59 Kael Drakkel Arena and other armor drop areas Frost Giants 113% Vel Group should average level of 55+; chance of Velious Dwarf armor drops
50-60 45-60 Wakening Lands in the geonid tunnel directly west of dragon ring (#8) A Geonid A Geonid Shaman 100% Vel
Npc a geonid.png
Good for BRD/ENC/NEC/SHD/SHM. These give exp even at level 60. The real danger of this camp is the geonid shamans. Also when low life they flee potentially causing adds. Geonids in general have high resists compared to the average mob.
51-59 - Wakening Lands ? A Suit of Sentient Armor 100% Vel
Npc a suit of sentient armor.png
Good for BRD/DRU/SHM. Drops Velious armor gems and Sentient Armor; there are two Player-Defined Camps: "4s" and "6s", which refer to the groupings of 4/6 suits

51-54 51-54 Dreadlands 3x Skeletons on Wall Greater Plaguebone, Plaguebone Skeleton, Greater Scalebone, Rotting skeleton 100% Kun
Npc greater plague skeleton.png
Good for MAG, SHD. One of these skeletons can be pulled single, while the other two come together (but can be split once camp is broken). Mix of blues/light blues at 54, with an extremely small chance of the Rotting skeleton, who drops a piece of the Key to Veeshan's Peak. Respawn time is 6:30
51-59 49 - 59 Nagafen's Lair Near Sol A Zoneline Lava duct crawlers 100% Cla
Npc lava duct crawler.png
Good for MAG,SHM. Good for Shaman/Monk duo and other combinations. Procs Boiling Blood during combat which blocks regen spells from being applied. It's possible to level to 60 from these but after 55-56 it becomes pretty slow exp. See also Kurrat's Lava Duct Crawler Guide for Magicians.
51-56 51-56 Timorous Deep Raptor Island Raptors 100% Kun
Npc a raptor.png
Good for DRU, WIZ, MAG. Can't bind in zone. Raptors run VERY fast (but slower than JBoots) and have a HUGE aggro/assist range. Pegasus Feather Cloak is recommended, as keeping levitate up at all times makes it possible to run.
Druids/Wizards can quad kite the raptors. A single 51 Mage Earth pet (with Shield of Lava on it) can usually kill one raptor, though sometimes an extra nuke is needed.
51-56 49-54 City of Mist 2nd Floor Assorted, eg. Haze Golems 113% Kun Good for ENC/SHM.
51-56 - Burning Woods Giant Fort A Forest Giant Verdant, A Forest Giant Ancient, etc. 100% Kun Giants can drop Giant Foreman's Tunic, Giant Lord's Tunic, Forest Loop, and weapons that vendor for 10-45 plat
51-56 - Burning Woods 4000, 1750 Map Icon.png, near Skyfire zoneline A Sarnak Zealot, A Forest Giant Ancient, etc. 100% Kun If giant fort is taken you can pull from the "field" just south of this hunting spot. The field has various mobs (largely sarnaks) pathing through it, so sometimes its barren and other times its busy. If you bring your pull back towards the valley on the way to Skyfire you can avoid adds (and run to zone if needed).
51-56 - Howling Stones Entrance ? 113% Kun Charasis Entry Platform.jpg Good for SHM.
51-57 - Greater Faydark Kelethin (Outside Rogue's Guild) Kelethin Guards 133% Cla Good for MAGE, SHD, evil characters. Lowers wood elf faction; guards drop fine steel weapons; quad-able (tips here); outside rogue's guild is a good spot to pull singles
52-55 - Wakening Lands Easy 4x Goo Cave Map Icon.png or Harder Cave; more Goos Map Icon.png 4x A Tar Goo 100% Vel Npc a tar goo.png Good for BRD/MAG/SHD/SHM. Decent (but not great) loot of non-Velious gems. The easy/4-goo cave spaces the goos apart, so no Harmony is needed, but the southern cave has goos next to each other, so you'll need it (or another way to deal with 2+ at once). Because the goos are KOS to the adjacent geonids, if you haven't ruined your faction you can run to them for help.
52-53 - Kedge Keep ? a spinereef seahorse, a squallsurge seahorse 217% Cla Good for DRU. Good for animal charming. Start in the far back, right-most room. Charm the seahorse there, then wait for the pather to enter the room and use the two to kill each other, then repeat on other rooms, using Calm Animal to split three-seahorse room; always try and stay in a corner and gate out or Leatherfoot Raider Skullcap out at the first sign of trouble
52-58(59) - Great Divide Along east wall, south of fort, eg. -4200, -3000 Map Icon.png a frost giant elite, Gorul Longshanks 100% Vel
Npc a frost giant elite.png
Good for MAG, SHM. Being Velious, these giants have more HP than (say) Forest Giants in Burning Woods (Kunark), and so are slower XP. However, they do still give some XP, and also give both Claws of Veeshan and Coldain faction.

Start along west wall (either by the boulder south of fort, or even further south). Park pet (if any), then run East to find Frost Giant Elites. Bring them back to wall to avoid adds. At 59 some elites turn light blue, but many remain blue.
52-59 - Plane of Mischief ? Rats in rat maze 100%? Vel Good for DRU,ENC,SHD. Good for animal charming. The rats in the maze aren't charmable, but you can charm a skunk above and bring it down. Chance of both squires and knights; you will get lost at some point; closest entrance is between McStinkles and McSprayel, by the door they 'guard'. McStinkles does not summon, McSprayel does. Should not go before level 52 due to agro issues getting cothed to the PoM cubby. Learn the pathing mobs in your fight area before you start pulling.
52-59 - Karnor's Castle Entrance/Moat Various, eg. Skeletal guardian 113% Kun Good for WAR. Nearby LFG casters may buff/heal
53-59 55-59 Howling Stones Basement ? 113% Kun Charasis Basement.png Good for ENC/NEC/SHM/SHD. See Charasis Basement for more info
53-59 - Sebilis Entrance ? 113% Kun Good for SHM. Requires key; unlike other dungeon entrances, there's no immediate exit so you might want to bind outside
53-55 - Everfrost Passage to plains Barbarian guards 133% Cla Good for BRD/NEC/SHM, evil characters. 3 static spawns; lowers Merchants of Halas, Shamen of Justice, Steel Warriors, and Wolves of the North

54-56 51-55 Frontier Mountains End of tunnel inside giant fort Eldak Howlingbear and Mentrax Mountainbone 100% Vel Good for BRD, SHD. These mobs are indifferent to all, have a 6 min respawn, drop no loot, and can be feared
- 54-58 Karnor's Castle Left Courtyard ("LCY"), in front of #9 ? 113% Kun
54-59 52-59 Chardok Betrayer Camp ? 113% Kun Has several nice drops, including pipe for Monk epic;
50+ 50+ Western Wastes Eastern zone wall Shardwing Courier ? Vel Good for ROG. This is not a place to camp, so much as something to keep in mind and take advantage of when in the area. The Shardwing Courier's quest turnin is worth approximately 1.5% of level 59 for a Human Rogue, and can be turned in with hide+sneak or good Kromzek/Tormax faction. It also gives an item that may sell for a few hundred plat. If you are in Western Wastes anyway (perhaps for scout roll or going to/from ToV), he is well worth killing if he is up and you can do the turn-in. He is class/gear dependent (a 59 Rogue was able to solo it with poison and minor raid gear).

55-59 - Chardok Exit ? 113% Kun Good for DRU. Druids can charm the Sarnak dogs, watch out for trains, Enchanters/Clerics for C2/Resurrection are not uncommon
55-60 The Hole Undead Crypt Undead 200% Hol
Npc a fallen erudite.jpg
Good for CLR. See The Hole Undead Crypt for further details.
55-59 55-59 The Hole Drop Down( pulling castle and rat jail)/Docks(all of the town)/Undead Tower Elementals 200% Hol In the upper 50's the castle will start to green out, but it is still good xp. Stronger groups can move down to old Erudin. The docks is the most popular camp to pull the town, but the town entrance is also a good place to set up. Extremely strong groups can move down to the undead tower but please note that crowd control is difficult requiring an enchanter to often rely on dictate. Ghosts will flee at low health.
55-59 - The Hole Yael Pit Elementals, Rat, Rock Golems 200% Hol Good for SHM/DRU/NEC. Good for root rot on the Elementals and Rat spawns. Elementals sometimes spawn as Harvester (Cleric) which won't heal if nothing is in melee range or Wizards; both of these have nasty nukes, so buff up your resists or park them somewhere that you can line of sight their casting. Rock Golems can summon depending on level, only fight them if you can melee and survive (SHM with slow). 4 mobs in pit, more mobs up the ramp through the rock door. Watch out for Nortlav the Scalekeeper who is not KOS, but will social aggro Hole mobs. Watch out for Master Yael spawn timer so he doesn't kill you while grinding.
55-59 - Skyfire Near temple at south end, along west wall ? 107% Kun Stay well up on the wall to avoid aggro from mobs pathing by. Be wary of aoe dispel spamming chromodracs. Elder mobs (and some others) will summon.
55-59 - Kael Drakkel ? dire wolves 113% Vel Good for DRU. Extremely dangerous (harder than bear pits: wolves will instagib you if you make the slightest mistake); wolves are animal-charm-able with Call of Karana, but only the ones that hit for a max of 242 or less
55-59 - Western Wastes ? Animals 107% Vel Good for DRU/ENC. Good for charm-kiting. Animals share spawns with dragons, so good CoV faction is helpful. Avoid Esorpa of the Ring who is on Ring of Scale faction, and beware of An ice burrower. Worms are extremely magic resistant and require epic click with glamour to successfully ensnare (even then it may take many casts).
- 55-59 Plane of Mischief Rate Maze Ratmen 140% Vel Good for DRU/ENC/MNK. Can charm McStinkles (others too, but Stink is the only animal that doesn't summon) and bring him down. Monk can solo at 58/59 depending on gear. Get to know the pathing rats or you're gonna have a bad time with adds.
- 55-59 Plane of Mischief Hedge Maze ? 140% Vel Harmony is necessary; if you find the sphinx at the center DO NOT tell it "No" or it will kill you; hedge wizards are the hardest. <~ Bad tip. Even with a liberal application of Harmony you will get a million adds.
- 55-59 Plane of Mischief ? audience at puppet show, Chuckles the Great 140% Vel (Extremely rare) chance of squires or knights; mobs single agro and summon, so bring a pet or a slower.
56-59 - Kedge Keep #9 ? 217% Cla Good for DRU. Good for animal charming (fish, sharks, seahorses are charmable), Enduring Breath required, worn effect strongly encouraged. Remember your junk buffs as dang near everything dispels. Keep a dispel memorized because dang near everything has druid/ranger damage shields.

Hunting spots listed here have been shamelessly taken from other guides, forum posts, and even other sites. The goal was to create the best possible hunting guide, in part by consolidating existing guides, for everyone's benefit.
