Goru'kar Mesa - Post Mercenary Leveling
Goru'kar Mesa is a great place to go from 30 - 35 right after finishing Blightfire Moors. I don't really recommend staying in this zone much longer since it's not the best immediate money; you could however stay in Goru'kar Mesa all the way until almost level 50 if plat isn't a major concern of yours.
Just because Goru'kar Mesa isn't immediate money doesn't mean it's bad money though! If you'd like to learn a bit more about what's valuable in this zone and what items are worth keeping I recommend you read my older Goru'kar Mesa Farming Guide. This guide has a bit more information about the zone too!
If you've got a Journeyman tank mercenary he'll be able to solo all of the mobs you come across in this zone. If they're red just make sure you only pull one at a time as to not overwhelm your tank merc. Once they con even or dark blue he can usually handle two or three at a time with minimal help.
In the 33 - 37 area you'll want to be careful since all of the animals are social with one another; meaning if you pull one his nearby friends will usually come. You'll also want to avoid the alpha animals as they're much more powerful than the others.
If you decide to stick things out in Gorukar Mesa after the animals travel northeast to the next area on my map which is full of snakes. These guys cast a nasty poison DoT on your tank merc which significantly slows down the speed you can kill. There's much better places than here to level up but this location definitely is doable for those who don't wanna waste time traveling.
Loot any Defiant Gear you find and use everything you can equip. If you ever need to vendor while in this zone you can find a vendor just a little bit north at the centaur camp. Assuming you've never destroyed your reputation with them the vendor will be available for you to use.
- The zone line for Goru'kar Mesa is in northern Blightfire Moors.
- If you're having trouble managing your Inventory Space I highly recommend you invest in some Extraplanar Trade Satchels which are 32 Slot Tradeskill Bags. Alternatively you could also buy Unexpanded Tailored Backpacks as well. Though, the Backpacks will likely be more expensive. Follow the links provided to learn more about each item.
- If you need more plat while leveling I strongly recommend you check out my How to make more plat while leveling by Bartering Guide. It'll give you a list of all the different items you should be keeping an eye out for to Barter/Sell!
