Default What is the best zone to start ?

Hello,

I'm level 1 at Kelethin. I can't even kill a bat or a skeleton. I have no weapons. No money to buy weapons. And no people to group with when you are lvl 1. There is nothing that I can do [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.]

All starting zones are more or less the same. Why don't you have a weapon? You start the game with one.

This is most likely the best option.

Plus people will more than likely give you free stuff there too

Reroll or find your corpse for your newbie weapon. Go back to your guild trainer, put all your starting skill points into whatever type of weapon you have (club/1h slashing/whatever). Now you can kill level 1 stuff without dying first.

Kelethin is a great starting area, Freeport kind of sucks for people fresh to the box because from ~5-8 there are not many blues to kill. You can go beg for buffs but I don't think it makes up for all the running you have to do. You can/should go to North Ro at 5+ instead of EC if you're really set on it.

Cabilis > Qeynos > Kelethin/Felwithe >>> Most everything else >>>>>>>>>>>> Grobb/Ogguk for starting zones for fresh players, imo.

Rivervale is good till you max at level 7 at the goblin camps and have to move to common lands that sucks

But for level one to 7 man it’s choice especially now if they fixed the loser guard pharming operations. Pretty much level 1 to 7 rivervale is peak eq

Ferrott is highly underrated. That's my favorite newb zone.
