* Before you even try to play EverQuest or run its tutorial, make sure that
the device drivers for your video card and 3D accelerator are up to date.
The game is very touchy about current drivers.
* When you see an NPC deliver a phrase in brackets ([like this]), you need to
repeat that phrase to get more information. Remember to put a question mark
at the end of whatever you say; otherwise the NPC won’t continue.
* When you’re first learning the game, it’s fun to roll up a ranger first;
they have the natural advantage of tracking skill, which helps them hunt
down appropriate prey while leveling up.
Good Exp for low levels in Qeynos Area:
You must be in qeynos area before ateempting this trick, and around lvl 2-4.
Once you reach level 3, go to Qeynos hills and kill Gnolls, Gnoll pups, Gnoll
scouts or Gnoll watchers. There is a slight chance they will drop gnoll fangs.
Get 4 (or more) gnoll fangs and take them to the captain of the gaurds that
overlooks the arena. Give him 4 teeth at a time. He will give you lots of
exp and 4 moonstones. Give the moonstones to the bartender in the back of
the bar in South Qqeynos. He will also give you exp.
Making jewels that do something is mainly an Enchanters skill, but others can
also do this. Most people with low levels will buy Str+ rings and Def+ items.
However, if it is magic-based, mostly sell Jade rings.
Kunark is a great place to get money. All the monsters drop some. Be very
careful; the Iskar and the monsters there may not be so friendly. Stay in areas
with low Train rates and low Iskar walks. Stay away from the Warsilks Woods or
you will be killed by giants.
The Warrens can be tricky and no one should go in unprepared. The Warrens
have a lot of Kobolds high and low all over it. If they Agro on you, it could
start a big train. Enter in groups because it is safer and you can kill harder
things for better experience.
Easier Frost Giant fights:
In the Great Divide, Velious, there is an easy way to kill Frost Giants.
Down near the Shardwurm Caves (near the river that leads to Thurgadin) are
Frost Giants and Drakkel Dire Wolves. If you are at sufficient level to take
on a Frost Giant and have the ability to root, pull a Giant to the area with
dwarves roaming around. Root the giant and let it hit you when a dwarf is near.
The dwarf will start to attack the giant. Back away and let them fight. When
the dwarf is done, the giant should be more than half dead, making it much
easier to kill.
Finding your direction:
Ever get lost in the lands of Norrath? Look up into the skies to determine your
direction. The clouds are always blowing to the west.
If you are in need of money and are at a low level, try killing beetles for their
eyes, which can be sold for a silver. Kill skeletons to get bone chips and sell
them to necromancers for some platinum or sell them to a merchant for one silver
one copper each. Helping people and doing quests can also help.
An easy way for a Barbarian to get money is to go to the shop by the fairy. The
shopkeeper will tell you that if you bring him a fresh fish, he will give you one
silver per fish. You can buy a rod and bait from him. You do not lose bait every
time you cast, just when you actually catch a fish.
Flowing Black Silk Sash:
The Flowing Black Silk Slash is a great armor piece. It causes haste which does
not wear off. You will be able to hit more, and kill harder and better monsters.
Get in a group around level 35 and go to Lower Guk. Once there, try to get in that
group to try to loot one.
Ducking is the best way to cancel spells before you finish casting them.
Barbarian and leveling:
After starting a new Barbarian character, go just outside of the city of Barbarians.
There is a small narrow passageway just outside of the city where all animals pass
through. Almost all of the animals will Agro. For example, polar bear, skeletons,
goblins, and ice trolls. These animals should be a easy for you to kill, and will
allow you to gain levels in minutes. This is also easier if you are a Shaman because
your spells can really help out.
All illusions give some form of benefit. A few will only be faction boost such as
erudites, but that the Human illusion gives an experience bonus. Humans are the
base race, which lack any racial abilities. Therefore they were given a bonus to
experience, which the enchanter illusion spell contains.
Good exp for levels 11-14:
Go to Qeynos Hills and hunt down Rabid Grizzleys. They are about level 12 to 14.
Kill them (while keeping an eye out for Cros or Holly who will kill you for attacking
animals), then loot the rabid pelt off them. Take the pelt to the UFO in North Qeynos
and hand them into the Priestess wearing leather. You will get VERY good exp, 1 to
2pp and a spell (usually endure disease).
* When starting out as a young Iksar around level 8, in the lands of Field of Bone,
there is a Spiderling cave where you can still get experience and also harvest very
valuable to tailoring Spiderling Silks which can sell for as much as 2 PP a piece.
* In Highkeep, you can kill the guards. They are level 20 to 40. They drop Finesteel
weapons that sell up to 5 platinum with a nice amount of charisma (around 120 is
