EQ 1 - 50 Walkthrough
These are the easiest levels to do, you'll breeze right on through them as long as you are Gold and pick a tank merc. That being said, make sure you are gold and pick a tank merc. The tank merc will pretty much gobble up all of the mobs during this level range and make things easy as pie.
All that being said, what I recommend you do is follow my leveling paths here:
If you took my advice and have another account with you you'll be able to advance to a new area 2 levels earlier than as seen here. Also on the secondary account grab a Healer mercenary (primarily for rezzes, they'll OOM themselves ungodly fast pre 50). If you don't mind running back when you die then get another tank merc. If you have 3 accounts and 3 mercenaries then you will want to get two tank mercs and a healer merc. Also for the purpose of this guide and with all of my guides, when I say solo it means with a Mercenary. I'm always going to assume you're using a mercenary if you're solo and I personally don't really like the term "molo" as it makes no sense to me.
Before getting started there are two things I recommend you do. 1st is type /claim and look for an item called "Gift of Legacies Lost" each account can claim 999 of these but only 1 per character. The package comes with 3 pieces of defiant, 1 weapon, 10 xp pots, 10 speed potions and a book that lets you teleport to Plane of Knowledge. I recommend you save the 3 boxes of defiant and the weapon until 25 - 30 that way you can get significantly better gear than what you'd get at 1. Since they won't become defiant until you right click em, patience is key!
The second thing you should do is /join general and ask very politely if anyone has 1k they can spare for Mercenary costs. 1k on live is nothing, it would be like asking for 2pp on the TLPs. Chances are you'll find someone out there with a warm heart who will help you out with much more than just 1k but don't count on that. 1k will be a giant help for you for spells, gear and mercenary costs expecting more is greedy!
Now for leveling...
I highly recommend 1 - 15 in Crescent Reach and then 15 - 30 in Blightfire Moors. As long as you are gold and have a tank merc this will be an absolute breeze for you. Ultimately what you'll be doing is agroing a mob and running away from it, letting your tank merc engage it and beat it down solo.
While this may not be very fun (it most certainly isn't) it's the fastest way to level up 1 - 60.
After you reach level 30 I highly recommend you go to a zone with high plat drops, something like Lower Guk, Mistmoore (or City of Mist once you get 35). You'll need the plat for Defiant gear in the /baz and to keep up the mercenary costs. Also when the mobs in your area start conning Dark blue, light blue and green try and take some hits to raise your defense and dodge skills. You'll need to raise them sooner or later and unless you're a class with a swarm pet AA it will be exceedingly difficult to raise them the higher level you get.
City of Mist has quite a few named drops that will vendor for a couple hundred plat as well as tons of raw plat from drops. You'll want to hang out here as long as possible before moving on to Plane of Hate. Before heading to PoHate though you'll want to get some really really important things out of the way first!
For anyone out there who needs plat right now for spells, gear, merc costs or for any reason at all you may be interested in checking out my EQ Farming Guides. If you were unable to find someone to lend you plat for merc costs and are currently struggling it may be worthwhile to dedicate at least two of your future plat sessions to grinding mobs for plat drops/vendorables. Hill Giants in Rathe Mountains would be a great blast to the past or if you want something a bit different check out Castle Mistmoore! You of course can also hang out in City of Mist for longer too and farm there.
