Very dangerous zone, and like all OOW zones pain to get around in. Guild group went here today, was doing great till a mob gated. PAlly tried to stun but it resists and after it gated 4 adds came in and whiped everybody but the Feign Deathers. Due to the extreame pain of getting around in OOW zones it took about 40 minutes for people to summon corpses, rez, etc (had druid healing, no cleric).

I really dislike OOW zones. Every mob does insane procs at a insane rate, and every zone you are 100% dependant on invis. Yea its a game your gonna die, etc. But the fact that it takes this long to recover over a single blunder is no fun.

This is my second day in this zone... and I have to say I LOVE IT....

WoS seemed too slow and crowded... MPG too dangerous and crowded...

I stumbled upon RCOD on a hunch that something was out there I hadn't seen...

I found there to be three Great Camps and I know there are more I haven't seen. Bowlord, Historian, Statue...

So far Statue is my favorite, you get to it by zoning in from bloodfields into the EAST RCOD entrance and then going down the hill when you zone into RCOD. You will see a giant statue and that is the camp.. there are 3 named spawns here with a decent loot table which includes up to level 69 runes (may be 70 but I didn't see any drop)

Botting 2 toons both level 67 (about 70%) I dinged level 69 in about 12 hours. I gained about 4 runes, 4-5 nice items...

This is probably the most underused great zone I've found.. Good for some easy stress free exp... A slower tank and healer level 68+ can take this with any DPS to help.

this zone can be far more dangerous then wos or mpg, which is why it is not as crowded, also the exp in this zone beats wos by far if you ask me.

there are lots of mobs to camp and lots of raid encounters as well. why noone camps this zone you have got me, its a great spot for runes and nice non raid drops.

as for the stress free, it can be problematic when mobs gate and gate and gate, also you have to watch the procs, unslowed mobs can drop a 10k tank in a matter of seconds, even slowed noc cadavors are extremely tough... they have a high proc rate, seems to be every hit or every other hit is a proc, cripple will help with this it seems. i usually go here with a 10k+ ranger tank.

anything less then 10k hp i would suggest bringing another healer for back up. unless of course u have mana to cast pious light 3-4 times per mob, CH loops can be hard to get going with anything less then 10k hp, even starting cast at 80% on 10k tank he still has a good chance of dying.

The RCoD has some beutiful architechture. All the mobs con yellow or red to me at 65. On a 13 man guild pick-up raid, we killed wave after wave of these mobs, until a stone worker decided to gate repeatedly, leaving our healing and chanting dead in the camp from ads. I memorized gate and cast it while the barbarian tanks slashed their last. This dungeon is an obvious must for 66+ spells. In a 3 hour raid i got one full AA, though i was using veteran exp bonus. Ok thats about it.

Unless it is a new thing, I believe the required level is lower. I know I was there with a level 58, and I think I was there with a level 56. I would guess that the level required is at least as low as 55, but I've since gone to 65 so I can't check it now.

I think the minimum to enter this zone is 60 but I could be wrong.
I know Riftseekers is lvl 69 and MPG is 65 or 66.

Expedition death

I was messing around in Ruined City with a decent grp. The expedition mob is just outside the ruin gate to the left. He will offer 2 types Sewers or Catacombs.We choose a Catacomb expedition, figuring it would be a nice challange. DEATH is what it was. We buffed and got ready to enter like you do any other instanced zone. There was about 4 mob at zone in that are instant agro. Not hard mobs alone but as a grp of 4 they will kill your grp as they zone in.

Tried a few different ways to get back in. IVU, INV, DA, runed a chanter and tried stunning, mezzing. Mostly lvl 65 mobs so the chanter would have to have their GoD AE mezz spell.

Finally just quit the expedition and waiting for bodies to pop. Will be going back and request a Sewers expecition.

Right outside of the main ruins when you zone in there is a expedition mob to obtain expeditions from like in D. Scar. They seemed much harded however. First one we zoned into had around 20+ mobs in it with close proximity. No clue how it would be pulled w/o multiple adds.
