The end game (er ..the end game for these levels)! The goal is in sight. You ding 55 and ready for a new zone and a new challenge....nope. Your keeping your butt right in Eiglophian Mountains. Its time for you to head up to the mountaintop and the hunting lodge. There you will find a small quest center surrounded by Worms. yes, those fierce mountain snow worms (As a blossoming Biologist let me tell ya...Invertebrates don't do well in cold weather...somebody inform Funcom). Ok finish all these quests and you will find yourself hanging about 57-58. Make sure you find the Mammoths, its just a cool sight to see and besides its always fun to kill a gigantic creature by repeatedly stabbing its toe.
However You've run out of quests and your not 60 yet. Funcom said they plan to put some new ones in...here is hoping.
Level 55-60 Quest NPCs
Hunting Lodge / Upper Mountain
My suggestion is now its time to head back to Old Tarantia and hit the Arena Quests. Yea! remember them? Well at 55 -57 you can easily solo the whole lot of the single player Bosses in the arena. With a partner or two you can do the group bosses. Just send up a Message in the OOC or guild channel. The arena quests alone at lev 57 can give you a full level and likely provide you with your first Purple epic (The sun shines through the clouds...a chorus of angels sing as you grip your first Purp....you have arrived!).
Several quest NPCs try to send you off to Thunder River and others send you to Atzels Approach...dont bother until your at least 58 . Mobs are lev 59-61 at the front part. However in Atzels they BAF a LOT and you'll often see the wayward adventurer leading an enraged band of 4 - 5 Pickets (Ride that train!). In Thunder Canyon they are lev 60 Boars (Enraged Bacon) found in packs of 1 or 2. However there are not as many mobs as in Atzels, if there is another player grinding them..there wont be many left for you. If you want to grind it out, I suggest trying these Thunder canyon critters (Pissed off porkies). Follow the road west from the zone in spot through the hills killing all the pigs (hated hams) you find on either side, then turn around and work your way back.Once every so often head back to the Noble's district and hit the Villas. Grind your way to 60!
If you have a guild and friends willing to help. Now is also the perfect time to head into Toirdealbach's Tomb. There are 3 main quests for Toirdealbach's located in the Field of the dead (Diarmad and The Spirit of Leannan X2). If you have the group (which looking at my guild basically means, you have a Priest of Mitra and 5 ToS) I highly recommend you move in and slaughter this instance. A lot of XP here will get you close to Lev 60.
