Default Solo Leveling Guide for a Twink Monk?

My monk twink just hit 20 in Kurn's and the Zem was amazing soloing the place but now it's slowing down. What are some good places to solo until 60 that will be most efficient? I don't have a ton of play time any more which is why I'd rather solo when I can. The twink has Fungi/CoF and AC/SoS/TStaff. Hoping for more high Zem areas like Kurn's.

At 20 go to kurns basement until 25. Then TT ZL in SoNH until 31 on the Iksar betrayers in the cave. I did this all without fungi/CoF was fun.

I did a monk twink to 56 recently. I did 20-30 in WW giant fort in like a day, then HH guards to 42 in really short order. The zem there is amazing. I grouped in CoM til 44 or so, then I solo'd SolB to 52 in about a week and a half. I then got to 56 soloing in KC in about a week.

Another place to look at from 20-40 is SolA, great Zem and you can get exp from the goblins or the gnomes.

I went to the basement at 20 and there's only a few blue burranai's while the rest were green along with mostly green skellies. Am I supposed to go much deeper in the basement?

Would that be #12 on the map for the WW Giants at lv20? https://wiki.project1999.com/Warsliks_Woods

I did monk & cleric from 20-25 off of purely the skeletons. With that twinked of a monk you can handle the Bury as well, most greens besides the lowest skeletons will give XP till 24, and then you're just plowing around through mostly green XP to 25.

This is the right answer. 20 may be a little low to get started there but exp flies by astonishingly fast in SolA. You can kill gnomes/clockworks until about level 44 and the exp you get off greens is still amazing. Even if several people have the same idea, the gnome area is so large that it can support multiple groups without ever overlapping. And there's a goblin merchant in zone to sell ore/FS weapons to, or just go outside and sell to druid merchant.

HHK guards/goblins are also an option for amazing ZEM in a similar level range, but honestly it's so popular that you'll spend half your time traveling there then immediately traveling to an alternate spot because it's already camped.

For weapons you may want to hold off on using the Tstaff until it procs. Dual wield AC/SOS is going to give you more DPS across almost all levels pre-50. It depends how lazy you want to be, because the DPS starts to even out if you do the 2HB unequip trick.

Najena can take you into the 30s off various skeletons (and later ogres).

I did my ranger till like 23 on Kurns skeletons. Then I turned in 400 bone chips for a third more of a level in Kaladim. For science!

I've done many many melee twinks over the years, probably my biggest hobby on here. This is what I've found 1-50 from my OWN experiences and my OWN opinion.

1-15
Option 1: Blackburrow (If Good Race): Great place, the gnolls are incredible wimps and will drop gnoll fangs. Always turn in at Qeynos.
Option 2: Warrens: Tons of mobs, usually really empty, incredibly fast respawns.

10-20
Option 1: Befallen: Without a doubt the best a melee twink can do in this range. I've leveled 10 to 20 in this zone solo in a few hours before.
Option 2: Warrens, still: The Warrens is still good for this range (and can even go up to 25!). May even be able to get some little newb drops to throw on another toon you're not really playing right now.

20-30
Option 1: Runnyeye: My favorite place for this level range, usually empty and the Sporali on Floor 2 spawn with incredibly quickness. Very easy leveling and right next to a druid port in.
Option 2: Permafrost: You can actually stay here 15-40 if you wanted and make tons of loot while doing it. Much more dangerous and difficult than the other options though.
Option 3: Highkeep: Can either do guards if you can handle at 20, or grab goblins if they are up (if you have off hours). A nice little last resort place that's still best group XP in game.
Option 4: Field of Bone: There is a underwater cave in the ocean area. Skeletons spawn down there that ARE social but not KOS. The deeper mobs here HT but they spawn really quickly so you probably won't have time to even get to them. This is more 25-35.

30-40
Option 1: Mistmoore, area behind invis wall in Graveyard: Usually this spot is totally empty, and isn't TOO hard. Keep in mind if you're pulling out to the tower, the zone in is down and to the right. Be sure to zone though as those mobs will train through the zone if you just jump down wiping out potentially Pond, GY and CE camps. You can actually level to 45 here if you go to the cook/butler/maid area. The gargoyle eyes you can sell for a few K if you stay here through the level range too. Some port money/pot money.
Option 2: Highkeep Guards: More than not camped, but if it's open it's a nice place to earn some loot while leveling comfortable. Learn the zone layout though, don't run into wrong room of GM's or nobles.
Option 3: Unrest Balcony or Basement: Basement is usually not camped and Balcony is a bit slow, but comfortable. Really this is more of a 30-35 but 40 is not unheard of here.
Option 4: Temple of Cazic Thule: If you're aware of this zone, and know your way around, there are a few camps here that are nice. Tons of casters though so is one of my least favorite choices.

40-45
Option 1: Dreadlands Yeti Caves: Probably my go to place, but can be camped a lot. If you're playing well you can take the North caves and be right on time of the repops though it is hard to keep up with spawns solo. I've found out of Tstaff/Adam&SOS/Velium Staves that the proc staves are best dps here. Be sure to bring lots of bandages too even with fungi.
Option 2: Mistmoore Cooks/Butler/Maid: A great spot and never camped. Be wary of the cooks, they HT.

45-50
Option 1: City of Mist: You can take the balcony spawns surrounding the bridge at the very ent. This is a pretty rough camp, and sometimes Stables/Temple will get mad because they wanted those spawns.
Option 2: Highkeep, still: Guards, still. Maybe nobles if you're a total badass in the higher 40s.


I personally stay away from Crushbone, SolA/B, The Guks. Really crowded, not as good solo, overrated anyway. I know there are tons more options but these are my personal favorite and ones I've tried multiple times.

Also if you want Velious zones, 25-35 Crystal Caverns is nice and 30-45 Tower of Frozen Shadow is fun with some interesting loot options. Will need a buddy for TOFS if you want to get past Floor 4 though.

I can't speak to ZEMs really, but I did really well in Swamp of No Hope at the undead camp opposite cabilis. Is a good spot to rest with sneak on to avoid almost every roamer and fight there. I didn't even have a fungi, maybe had SCHW at the time.

Pretty sure I was mid twenties there or slightly higher, maybe stayed in that zone until 32ish.

As soon as you can, I recommend going to hunt Tundra Yeti's in Dreadlands. 6min respawn or so, very low agro radius (fight them on spawn point). Can hold down a lot of them with a fungi and bandages. You even make some decent gem drop loot off them. I think you could stay there from 38-46 if you wanted. Camped a bunch, but with fast respawns you can usually get yourself a cubby, also there is a lesser used cave opposite the popular one with 4-5 spawns (gotta catch one of the spawns fast else he wanders out into the tundra).
