View Full Forums : Druid Leveling 101

05-30-2006, 10:22 AM
My main is a level 70 Necro, but I recently made a Druid so I could add a little yin to my yang, and... well... port myself : ) My main toon is the only class I've ever played, so I'm not really up on where all the hot Druid spots are. I've done a few searches, but most of the "level from 1-50 in 3 days, guaranteed!" posts are pretty old and I know that some of the xp bonus zones have changed recently, so I was wondering if anyone could recommend a few current places for me for the earlier levels. Here's a link to her magelo so you have an idea of where she is gear-wise, and please, feel free to offer up any advice on that as well. I know she's missing a few slots, but I wanted to try and level her up some before upgrading much more so I wasn't tripping over level requirements so much : (

Also, I've been collecting a few of the 1.0 epic drops... I know you have to be level 50 to use the clicky, but is there a required level to do the quest?

What level are you? I don't have access to Magelo at work.

Still a baby, though somewhat twinked I guess. Level 13, 1299 hps, 1622 mana.

1-7 your hometown/city or others, Field of bone is pretty good.
8-14 Crushbone
15-25 Paludal caverns ( To solo, snare yelloweyes and use him as a pet.)
26-30 HHK or dawnshroud peaks (HHK is deserted, but DSP is easy to get a group in usually.)
31-39 Dawnshroudpeaks or Echo caverns ( Both good for practicing root rot while exp'ing)
40-46 Echo caverns big side. (Prolly need a group, unless your hardcore root rotter.)
46-54 Plane of innovation (Will need a group, as some summon and not much room, if you want to solo, kite draniks scar)
55-62 Plane of valor, it will be slow :-( (Not much for a soloer at these levels, but you could try kiting the phlarg models in PoV while lfg.)
62-65 Bastion of Thunder or WoS. ( Soloing is kind of hard, but PoV should be okay.)
65-70 - ANYWHERE with decent exp. Muramite Proving Ground, Nobles Causeway, or soloing while LFG, any exp to help you get levels. Monster missions were nice for these levels.

Also, is the necro on a different account, at 46 take him kiting in nobles causeway and kill alot, levels will be fast.

PS: I just made this list off the list of where i leveled my last toon up, i'm sure there are better places to level, but those are okay.

Once you hit 47, just take him wherever and let the necro do the kiting.

62-65 get your new charm spell and head to Plane of Storms. Charm/kite frogs in the forest area, hard to beat the xp.

You can also quad kite human models in the HoH basement, the corner rooms work best.

My advise - hold at L65 until you get some AA, they are easy to obtain at this level hunting in PoP.

Wow, you guys are getting way ahead of me lol. I'm still level 13! Thanks for the tips though, I appreciate it. Hopefully I'll get there soon!

how did you get the stuff from the DOD missions on a lvl 13? surely the 10lvl max spread for missions wouldnt let you add the alt after doing it with main?

Unrest is a great place to PL as a druid (since wolfy is non-KOS) but I'm not sure how well BEING PLed there would work. Iceclad ocean would be good. Throw a dot on a mob, hit it with the druid and FD...rinse and repeat. You get a nice XP bonus there, but I wouldn't head that way until you have your level 14 stinging swarm...the -100 magic resist should make it stick on most mobs.

Just make sure you get the FD off before the mob turns, or the necro will stay on the agro table (a well-timed root can solve this, but those mobs will be resisting that for quite a while)

Also, avoid the Eastern Waste side of the zone until you are a bit higher. The cougars near the tower of frozen shadow are easily pulled without all the wanderers that plague the EW side of the zone

The druid is on Firiona Vie. Not going to see many people with VP gear at level 13 otherwise.
