Revelation Rock, once revered as a spiritual place among the Galka, anchors the sandy region known as Western Altepa Desert. This area covers the western half of Zepwell Island, which the Galka once called home before being forced out by the Anticans. Now the only settlement nearby is the oasis village of Rabao.

altepa is not a good plce to level 25-30. it is way to hard, i would say more like 31-34, 35.

Not quite, a good group of 25-30 can take the huge spiders to school until they are strong enough to migrate to beetles and the weakest anticans.

The big advantage of altepa over kazham is : no trains, safe camps, easy pulling.

Edit : Stay in eastern until at the very least lvl 40.

the east desert is 27-34.
spiders will kill the majority of 25-26 partys, and after 34-35, exp from beetles and lower anticans becomesvery low.
at 35 go to crawlers nest, and fight worker crawlers

I leveled in eastern altepa from 33-45.. I started on the lower level anticans, went to dhalmels, then down to the outpost to kill goblins. When I left east altepa, xp was pretty crappy. My pt tends to not want to level where anyone else is leveling. This place was awesome. I'd love to go back now. Garliage and CN are ridiculously overcrowded and Serket has now killed my my pt members a total of 4 times. I reccomend east (not west) as a leveling place to anyone lvl's 33-45. I'm not sure if 25-30 would do well there.

I've been searching for this as well. Anyone have a confirmed spot for the Crag there? I overheard someone saying it wasn't a "Crag" like the others, but can someone give us some difinitive info on this?

Oh, Nylia, if you find out, can you send me a /tell in game? Thanks. :)
