Iksar Berserker Club and Kunzar Ku'juch come to mind, as mentioned by some of the other posters. At 50+ though, meleeing exp mobs is almost completely out of the question. If I were to grind to 60, I would almost certainly resort to farming quest exp turnins to level, which is one of the reasons why I decided 50 would be the endpoint.

I think you eventually end up doing a lot of snare kiting with poison and archery. Its also sometimes viable to use NPC on NPC combat to weaken something enough you can finish it, but the best examples I've used for that are in Velious, so would have to think if there's a good old world spot for that.
There are old world/kunark examples. I used one in this challenge (HG's) and there are others. I would love to demonstrate this tactic via video, but my computers are too obsolete for this.

You are the coolest dude, Yrehcra. Got dam.
I like to think that many players on p1999 are cooler duders than I am. I just try to find a lukewarm spot to co-exist in.

This is one of the coolest things i've come across in eq classic... super impressed. If you have any advice on SSF, or other threads anyone could recommend, I'm pretty hyped on this idea. I'm thinking of doing it /w a ranger.
Toss me a forum PM with your questions and ideas and I'll get back to you in a day or two. Rangers are my favorite class, and I still consider my 60 SSF Ranger on Blue to be my main.

My biggest general tips for SSF runs are to research the wiki a lot, try to avoid competition and/or conflict with other players as much as possible, be as absolutely patient as you can, and go and do something else when you have the inevitable frustrating setbacks (specifically, but not limited to, dying).

Hello. I am a crazy person, it's nice to meet you. I play this game almost entirely solo most of the time and I enjoy solo challenges.

Last year I decided to start a new side project on Green and I figured I'd try a new challenge: Solo, Self-Found Dark Elf Warrior, Classic only.

I chose Dark Elf as they have among the worst starting stats for a Warrior and also have evil faction. I turned in my Tome of Order and Discord at Level 1 to avoid getting buffed or healed by other players. This also means I could never change my starting bind point of Nektulos Forest.

Even though the Kunark expansion came out during the challenge, I decided to keep all leveling and strategies Classic-only. As with any SSF challenge, I would only solo, and only use what equipment and items I could make, quest, or find myself.

When I started in August 2020, I figured if I made it to Level 20, that would be a pretty neat accomplishment. I didn't have high hopes for the worst class/race in the game for soloing.

This past Sunday I reached my end goal of Level 50, screenshot enclosed.

I wanted to post this to express my thanks that this project exists, and to show that while raiders challenge themselves and each other to push for competitive advantages, there are also other ways by which players challenge themselves to accomplish very strange and interesting things within this game.

Note: some of this challenge was informed by Kich869 aka EchoLocation8's Solo Warrior Guide, but I did this challenge without the help of the combat bind wound technique (which was nerfed before I even created this character) and a lot of the early levels involved faction work, as my Dark Elf was KOS in many areas that I needed to access. My thanks to their guide for making me consider that soloing a Warrior might even be possible.
Well done sir, you have the highest constitution rating on the server. I thought your ranger project was impressive; this is several levels beyond.

/bow to the goat of SSF!

Although long 50-60 is possible. Get Jboots have mobs beat you into beserk and just bow kite. Long, but possible.

I mean you could probably get to like 54 or 55 on old world mobs doing the same thing that he has been doing with meleeing them but yeah once you hit 54/55 itís tough to find old world mobs that give exp but donít absolutely wreck you

This is so cool. I mean, I think you're absolutely nuts - but I'm glad players like you exist. Well done!

You can buy Traveler's Boots from the gnomes in Sol A for 5k which are basically Jboots with a 1.5 second cast time. I think they don't get a lot of use since its not much more expensive to buy a JBoots multiquest and the cast time can mess you up under some circumstances, but I know more than one ALS wizard who saved up and bought one in their late 20's/early 30's in order to Quad effectively.
