I discovered a new level 40-45 grinding spot
« on: September 07, 2007, 10:56:21 AM »

I think the Crystalvein Mine in Stranglethorn Vale would make a decent grinding spot for level 40-45 or so.

You have to go there and kill Ironjaw Basilisks (43-44) to get crystals for a quest: [45] The Singing Crystals.

It's a nice spot because there's lots of Basilisks and nobody goes there because there's only one quest with a drop rate is so high that people complete the quest just inside the entrance of the mine.

There's several mineral vein spawns (I saw mithril and iron) in the cave as well as a few just outside, several chest spawns, and lots of leather from the basilisks if you're a skinner.  There's also some water, so you might be able to fish.  I never tried though.

I think that the rare elite spawn, Scale Belly, can also be found inside or outside the mine.

I think it's probably one of the most secluded grinding spots in STV, which is a plus if you're on a PvP server since we all know what a warzone STV can be.

I can't see the info on that quest due to a firewall.  Where did you get it?

It's part of the "Yenniku" chain in Grom'Gol.
The first half of the chain is from from "Nimboya", then the is from "Kin'weelay"...

From what I remember the basilisks in this area have a stun.

Have you tried farming them?  I'd imagine it would go something like this:

Stunned...Stunned...Stunned...Stunned...Stunned...Stunned...Stunned...Stunned...Stunned...Stunned...Stunned...dead

If it works let me know, my pally is 30 and on freeze 'til the level 30 mounts come out but I'm looking forward to aoe farming with him.

I farmed that spot with my shadow priest and hunter while leveling.  My pally was too high level to grind there when I discovered it.  It's possible that they stun melee.
