Lev 30 Destiny Quest
You ding level 30...and miraculously the NPCs actually start talking to you again. The silent treatment that you've endured from the populace is over. Its time to head back to your trainers in your original city hubs. Khemi for stygians, Old Tarantia for Aquillonians, and Connals Village for the sheep farmers of Cimmeria.
I will outline these quests in a future article.
The lev 30 destiny quest is short (compared to the novel you endured in Tortage), straightforward, and you ought to be decently into lev 31 upon its completion.
This is when players make a bit of a mistake. A lot continue to just grind through everything in their own lands and never venture out to the other two nations. This isn't WoW where horde cannot quest in alliance territory. We are all family (in an " I'll slit your throat and enjoy the show " kind of way) in Hyboria. At level 30 I suggest that you head to the aquilonian side and start doing their quests. So head back to Khemi, then take the boat ride to old Tarantia. While there check in with the Traders and upgrade any low level armor and weapons to level 30s (Don't forget your bling).
Key Quest: You must endure every parent's Nightmare! While In Old Tarantia you must find and speak with your daughter's future husband......Fabio. I'm sure behind all that mascara is the soul of a true warrior. Grab his quests and do his bidding, no matter how much it turns your stomach.
If you really want to grind it out. Head to the Black Castle in Khopshef Province with a group. This place is full of lev 30 and 31 buggers with fast (WIL-E-Cyote rocket skates fast) respawn timers. If your alone, just head over to The Wild Lands and travel south to the border lands instance. There the respawning is not so fast but full of 32-33 groups that you can grind all the way to 35.
The best way to gain easy XP is now to leave Stygia and head to Old Tarantia, then take the wagoneer to The wild lands. There you will arrive at a city which would have been the starting 20-30 quest hub for Aquillonaians called 'The Wild Lands'. However, since you did your 20-30 in Stygia ..The Wild Lands is fertile land for XP. A lot of people think that green or gray quests don't give a lot of XP...WRONG! Grab those easy quests and they go a LONG way in your XP bar. Many of these quests can be done very quickly because you don't have to worry about agro mobs (they are gray to you). Once you get to 33, grab all the quests and head to border lands instance to the south of the zone and finish all the quests in there. These will get you to 35 easy.
Level 20-35 Quest NPCs
Tesso Tesso continued Outcast Camp Off Site
Captain Ignacio Nestus Manto Zelata
Cariste Adeonus Aexelus Phaedra
Govenor Millias Brother Juno Dorina
Derat Oris The Apprentice
Stolos Varia The Seamstress
Key Quest NPC: Zelata is the end result of Sabrina: The teenage Witch overdosing on MET and living 10 hard years on the streets of Kansas city. This is yet another example of playing the minimap gets you nowhere. Do NOT follow the minimap to find Zelata. Head south from Tesso to the southern village (Kerkyra). There you will see a path across a bridge moving southeast away from the village ...thats the one you take to get to Zelata (bring your own syringes).
