29: Korroloka Tunnel
PETS TO CHARM: Land Worms (20-25), Seeker Bats (22-26), Jellies (23-27), Combats (27-30), Huge Spiders (28-31), Thread Leeches (28-31), Clippers (29-32)
MOBS TO FIGHT: Land Worms (20-25), Combats (27-30), Huge Spiders (28-31), Thread Leeches (28-31), Clippers (29-32), Greater Pugils (30-33)
NOTES: 29, Use Huge Spiders, Combats, Clippers, and Thread Leeches vs. the same mobs and Greater Pugils. Good camp is Pugil pools and spider room.
Maybe I went to a different room with Pugil pools and spiders next door, but this spot was much more detrimental than beneficial to me. 95% of the inhabitants (Clippers and Huge Spiders) conned as Tough at level 29, which left me resorting to jug pets and the very occasional Even Match as my only means of attack/defense. Even then, the Greater Pugils would tear through them pretty quickly, and with no other suitable targets around and my jug timer still counting down, I found myself in serious trouble quite often. I couldn't find any Combats or Thread Leeches in here or the tunnels leading to this room, so I was forced to return to the "main" tunnel region to get them. After about two hours of experimenting here, I ended up with a net gain of 56 EXP (after three deaths).
29: Maze of Shakhrami
PETS TO CHARM: Combats (20-23), Carniverous Crawlers (22-25), Ancient Bats (26-29), Caterchipillar (29-31)
MOBS TO FIGHT: Combats (20-23), Carniverous Crawlers (22-25), Goblins [Furrier, Pathfinder, Smithy, Shaman] (31-34)
NOTES: 29, Camp near entrance from Buburimu Peninsula. Use Ancient Bats and Caterchipillars vs. Goblins.
I ran into some problems here as well - the goblins tore through the Ancient Bats like they were nothing, and there weren't enough Caterchipillars in the tunnel leading from the Buburimu exit to the goblin room...even after waiting for them to respawn, I would find two at the very most. Very slow EXP, but at least I didn't die here. :)
Since then I just decided to go back to the stalactite dew room in Ordelle's Caves and continue killing Goliath Beetles for 100-140 EXP a pop. I'll try Korroloka Tunnel again when I'm at a higher level.
EDIT: I decided to go back to the same area in Korroloka Tunnel after I hit 30, and boy, was I surprised. I had no problems achieving Chain 3s consistently for 400+ EXP at a time. I'd start with two EM Huge Spiders vs. a T Greater Pugil, and then proceed with EM spider vs. EM/T spider battles to keep the chain going as long as possible. Having access to Tame, Divine Seal, and better armor come level 30 helped substantially.
Also, that spider NM is no joke...I thought I would try my luck seeing as how I had a room full of EM/T spiders. Luckily I had no problems charming, but even then it took eight
spider pets to knock its HP down to just above 50%. Finally, with no more spiders to charm and throw in its path of carnage, I summoned a jug pet to keep it occupied and logged out. :( Edited, Mon Sep 19 19:03:33 2005 by Zodiacknight
