Not sure if Charsis/Howling Stones is in range for you but that is a good solo spot for a monk in the mid 50s iirc.

Back in my day 54 monks couldn;t solo there (though I imagien they can now easily).

I remember at 60 killing velks cause I could get an AA in 6 hours or so there solo. The ubah monks were getting them in 2 hours killing mushrooms in damn can't remeber the name of the SoL zone.

I soloed in the Plane of Justice a fair bit around 55. As I leveled I just moved farther in. Starting at the exit killing prisoners and guards (avoiding rats since they run like mad), then moving to the next tier of prisons, then enforcers, then into the golem / beetle area.

It probably wasn't the best place in the world to solo but the guards regularly dropped diamonds and blue diamonds which made for a happy jewelcrafting wife.

I've soloed almost my whole monk career with the exception of a few pickup groups once I got into the 70's. Once you hit 61 life really really slows down.

Ghoul Lord area in LGuk will still get you noticeable XP until 55.

WHer I killed (primarily solo).

Level 1-5 FIeld of bones.

Level 6-15 Blackburrow.

Level 16-20 Warrens.

LEvel 21 and 22 High hold pass (getting faction to safely enter High hold keep).

Level 22-34 HHK. (Yes I probably stayed to long but hey I wasn;tused to the "high level" game)

Level 35-50 Crystal Caverns (where I taught myself to single pull).

Level 51 and 52 Yetis in Dreadlands.

Level 52-58 Plane of Justice. (killing the named in the circle for first set of prisoners and AVOIDING that nasty Iksar who kicked ass).

Level 59 and 60 Velks.

Level 61 Some PoJ a little deeper in however PRIMARILY from 61 to 70 and about half the time from 52 to 60 I grouped.

Now usually I group with my Shambot and a friend who plays either a Cleric (normally) or a ranger or shaman or beastlord depending on which alt of hers she feels like playing. I can not recommend a shambot enough for "soloing" it makes the barely soloable mobs easy, and allows many non-soloable mobs to be killed.

It is probably not the best xp for a 55 monk, but the most fun place (tailor made for monks) would be sol b. I think at 55 bats would be easy, then in a couple of levels go to spiders. You could probably solo royals too.

What I wish is they would make sol b a 70 zone. It is so made for monks soloing.

Yup, back before PoP i practically lived in FG, only leaving the zone for raids. With Caens and Lunar Fungi it was non-stop fighting taking out two patches without HP problems, i got Veils and shrink potions for half the guild, and dozens of AA. :smile:

I played a monk back in the velious days and i think i remember being able to solo in velks at about 54 with my 1.0, dont even think i had my fungi yet then, if not at 54 it was soloable at 55/56, just had to keep to the spiders on the bottom floor usually. My gear back then was a mix of crap, more crap, and skyshrine/thurg quest gear.

hahaha Azith - I keep trying to promote Solb but I guess everyone is so twinked anymore that is no longer the best place for many plus , everyone wants a hot zone!! Rarely have I seen or heard that SolB is/has been a hot zone (unless one takes a "lava bath" in stream to Effreeti Lord)!!! Always good for bind wound skill practise as one can no longer bathe in the puddles in Lava storm since graphic update - I guess one could but not as easily!

Happy New Year everyone.
