  • Poking around VoA at 86

    I decided to be unlazy and level. At 86 I went to VoA to see what kind of new camps I could manage and if I could do the basic language tasks. I know we can solo most of them, but I wasn't sure at what level, and 'solo' is something of a relative term.

    I tried Argath #1 and the looters aren't social with anything, so you can kite them or root rot them without any issues. I was also able to complete Argath #2 after some issues finding where the siege runners spawn and a slight learning curve on the bow. You'll want to have a healer merc in case the dervishes gang up on you. My gear is fairly modest and I didn't have any close calls while repairing walls.

    After that, I went into Valley of Lunanyn and found I could root rot there. I'll probably be picking up the tasks here as my language unlocks, when Grounds is noisy. I went to Beast's Domain after I noticed some faction hits I didn't want to deal with. BD is much easier to deal with at 87 than it is at 86, although it hits like a truck (if you did any kiting in Qvic when GoD was the big expansion, this will feel similar).

    Last night, Domain was super crowded so I went to City of Bronze at level 88. This is on the edge of too difficult for me with my spells/gear. I can kill here just fine, but the efficiency is incredibly low. I did have a friend offer to buy tradeskilled items from me as soon as I zoned in, so this will be good in the future.

    Note: Now that I'm 90 and hunted farmers for a while, Mabus doesn't seem happy with me. However, I can still get the kill tasks with the following phrases, but you HAVE to be level 90:

    "vermin infestation"
    "fertilizing the fields"
    "reaping the harvest"

    If you're hunting in this part of the Valley, ALWAYS have these three tasks going.

    There's a bunch of undead near Sarith entrance as well. They don't seem to be camped ever, at least on Cazic.

    When I was 85, I also poked around there for a bit.

    I did Argath#1 and #2 without any problems, but the third one gave me trouble.

    After that, I went back to HoT until 92, except for turning in cantrips for 91 spells. At 92, with the new Warrior pet from the vendor, I was able to whip through the tasks without too much trouble. Just used him with pet toys and a healing merc. It was a fairly positive experience, all things considered :P .

        I think it's straight kills in other zones for faction. I moved to Apprehensive as well, so moved to Beast's Domain, which you can do at 86 although the kills will take some time.
