Default So How do I take on Droga?

So my 36 shammy is kinda between paineel guards at this level, and needs to get a couple of levels elsewhere.

My 49 bard is on Hg's but there will be too many greens at 50, and he's heading to kunark to get OT hammer.

My bard would also like to loot the illusion mask from Chardok one day.

My 57 warrior, I'm not really exping him but he can potentially farm items from low level zones.

Is droga viable for exp and loot from the first two, and loot for the third character?

Can mobs be single pulled? Is there a safe spot or Zoneline? How camped it is?
Salts and skins give faction with Sarnaks right? They could pool their loot onto the bard?

I've never really done it on any char.

Are you asking if there's worthwhile loot in Droga? Or is there specific loot outside salts/skins that you're looking for and figuring out the best strategy to get it?

Sorry it was kinda broad.

Could the 57 warr camp a sellable item.

Could the 49 bard exp there/get chardok faction/camp sellable items.

Could the 36 shaman exp there/get chardok faction items for the bard?

theres basically nothing in droga worth camping besides skins/salts

a 49 bard could xp there but itll probably be harder than its worth solo. Its almost all caster mobs and i think stuff will start be green at 49?
36 shaman will probably struggle, but you could do nurga for the same vibes and easier kills

Problem with droga on a war is everything has damage shield.

a 49 bard would probably have a better time than a 57 war

hone your charm skills!

https://wiki.project1999.com/Canyoneer_Pike is a budget willsapper basically for Warriors who can't afford Truncheon or willsapper. Also procs at level 5 apparently.

Generally speaking Droga is a tough zone for players in the level range it is designed for. Too many casters.

At 57 your Warrior could collect Salts/Skins, but it wouldn't be as fast or as safe as other classes that are better at soloing.

I did a bunch of charm soloing in Droga on my bard about levels 43-45. I think the mobs are level 33-37. On the bard you can use the mana free charm. I think you get the first xp greens at 45 or 46; I don't think you will see many if any blues left at 49. You could possibly camp an EoE on the 49 bard but maybe not efficiently; I managed to kill the ph a few times while I was xping there. It's a big room though and you'll likely have to clear out several mobs in the next room to clear a place to fight the ph. By 60 you can just invis onto the ph and kill it where it spawns; I'm not sure what level you have to be to do that without the room adding.

I'm not sure what level a shaman wants to be to fight mobs in that range, but I'd guess 40+ to keep root breaks to a manageable amount. As mentioned there are lots of casters, I hope that doesn't spoil the zone for a shaman but it might. Nothing sees invis; so you can explore with your shaman to try to find a camp that you can split. I didn't notice a lot of singles on the bard, but I wasn't looking for them. I didn't succeed at the zone in on the bard (and don't remember trying the deeper zone lines), so I fought away from them and used a leatherfoot raider cap as necessary. There are tons of mobs in the zone.

At 60 I've gong back on my bard to farm faction + vendor drops + salts/skins. I ae snare then run a circle and use the ae dots. Vendor the goblin armor (about 5-30p a piece), yes turn the salts/skins in for sarnak faction, the wiki should have accurate values on how much faction each gives. Exactly how many goblins a bard can ae in a kite is a gear check. I see 60 monks/mages/necros single kill farming sometimes. I think a well geared 60 bard may be the fastest droga farming class, although it's probably more work than the others.

Halfling mask is a 30 minute corpse and if the farmer has a factioned cleric I think they could rez you in to loot, but being factioned likely does help your odds of picking up a random drop affordably. Don't forget the faction song.
