Crypt of Decay Farming Guide
Crypt of Decay is one of my favorite farming zones in Everquest. The reason for this is they drop a ton of Diamonds in here and Cultural Items that sell for a ton in The Bazaar as well as Spell Research materials that you can also sell for a good amount in The Bazaar. Also you can get Sunshard Ore in here which is a huge seller in The Bazaar, usually going for 200pp or more per piece! There are also a lot of other vendorable goodies in here such as the Tainted Planar Essences that you come across, Brick of Ethereal Energy, Strand of Ether etc etc.
This zone is also extremely awesome because it is one of few zones when it comes to farming that pretty much the entire zone is worth farming. Inside Crypt of Decay you will find Bubonian creatures (rats), Puslings and Undead. The Puslings are known as Undead but usually when it comes to checking camps they're just called Puslings. The Puslings and Rats are both able to be headshot by Rangers when they have at least rank 7. The Puslings and Bubonian Rats should be your first two camp choices when it comes to farming here since they are both easier to kill than the undead and drop more goodies.
Depending on what level you are, how many AAs you have and if you have an AoE ability or not you should be able to do a whole clear of CoD within 10 - 15 minutes which averages out to be 7 - 10k pp with each clear (once you factor in all the items you will sell in The Bazaar) which is a lot of plat an hour for someone your level. If you're able to run a Trader and you're looking for a great easy place to farm for levels 80+ Crypt of Decay is for you!
PP Per Hour Estimate: 30 - 40k
