Guide for Experienced Players:
- For beginners and low-level characters, one starting area could be farming Mantid Pincers in Sunqua Vale, and trade 3 of them to Marik Kuri for one Salvage Kit, Identification Kit or Belt Pouch. Merchants sell these items for 100gp each. One may be able to sell to players for 50gp each (about half way between what the traders are willing to sell and buy). Sunqua Vale is just East of Shing Jea Monastery in Factions. Marik Kuri can be found near the water edge to the south of Sunqua Vale. Repeat mantid pincers farming as needed.
- Note 1: the drop rate and quality of the drop will decrease if over-farming in an area. It is recommended to farm, go elsewhere to farm, and come back at another time. In some cases like buried treasure farming, it could take a month or more before the drops/rewards return to normal.
- Note 2: since hero(es) and/or hench(es) are part of the party, eventhough you do not see the drops, they will have equal share of the drops including gold coins. To maximize your farming, you may want to farm solo.
Advanced (Solo) Farming: - see Craft Trading page also
- Anti-farming rules.
- Granite Slab/Lump of Charcoal/Gold HM farming with 55-necro, can also be done with Signet of Spirits (SoS) build.
- Raptor farming with E/Me in NM, HM, with W/N, with N/W.
- Feather farming tips and locations.
- Destroyer Core farming with W/Rt.
- Elemental Sword farming outside of Rata Sum against Wind Rider (Tarnished Coast).
- Buried treasures farming can yield about 20k in cash plus gold drops PER character (not account-based). It is recommend that your character has completed Nightfall. Recommend to farm in Normal Mode since Buried Treasures farming in Hard Mode seems to have no impact on the quality of the treasure. That character will be unable to do Buried Treasures farm again for a period of time. Over-farming will result in lower quality drops (example: purple/grape or no drops rather than gold drops).
- One of the best places to level up your character or hero(es) safely, gain survival title in less than 10 hours, gain lucky/unlucky titles and farm for unid (unidentified gold weps) is to snow wurm-farming outside of Boreal Station, EOTN. Farming steps below:
- Best build is probably SoS plus a running spell.
- Since these Snow Wurm do not have distance attack, as long as your character stays a short distance away from them, you will not get hurt. As such, you should also put all your attributes into offensive attacks, such as, changing your non-stacking head gear rune to +3 to max your damages.
- To maximize your experience gain, you need to farm in Hard Mode and also use experience scroll from Scroll Trader (preferably Scroll of Slayer's Insight since it will max your character's experience gain at 350% in Hard Mode).
- To maximize your drops, you should farm solo. However, multiplayer can benefit from group farming since you can share experience scrolls and quicker farming.
- Norm reputation points farming can also be gain here for Norn rank title.
- Drunkard Title can also be gain here especially if you use with drunk spells such as, Drunken Master.
- Leeching won't work here (tried it). Experience would be shared.
- FARMING STEPS:
- 1) Map to Boreal Station, EOTN (make sure you have enough experience scrolls, lockpicks, and alcohol. Clear your inventory also).
- 2) Make sure Hard Mode and your Norn title is checked (give +100 health in Norn territory). Keep your inventory open and to the side.
- 3) Leave Boreal Station at the West gate. Re-enter Boreal Station so when you resign you will be near to the exit. Exit Boreal.
- 4) When you are outside of Boreal Station, drink your alcohol, use your run spell, cast your experience scroll, and tag the nearby Norn shrine (Tjorvi) - make sure you have killed him safely before the farming.
- 5) Run North-West toward the snow wurms. Attack the wurms in a circular path. There are ten (10) wurms. STOP and resign before you get to the Pinesouls eventhough there are three (3) more snow wurms near there. The Pinesouls will charge fast and attack your character, possibly causing you to lose your survival title. There are also one or two chests in the area.
- 6) Each killed snow wurm provides 924 experience points, 9,240 experience points total for the 10 snow wurms. Each run should take less than four minutes. Even at 4 minutes for each run, you should be able to do 15 runs in an hour (138,600 exp). You should be able to receive your Legendary Survival title (1,337,500 experience points) less than 9 hours 40 minutes total. For survival farming, this method is better and a lot safer than farming with Kilroy Stoneskin in Gunnar's Hold or FOW farming. See Snow Wrum Farm build in the Useful Builds below also.
