East Korlach, known better by outsiders as the "Undershore," has several areas of interest:

- The slave trader camp (With outsider-friendly shiliskins)
- The Malgrinnor fortress (Commanded by General Veronhar)
- Jadewater Beach (A fishing area controlled by the Malgrinnors)
- The Stone Forest (Home to a clan of Ragepaws)
- The tomb of Emperor Draygun (Marked by a massive shiliskin statue)
- Jarzarrad's Enclave (You'll want to see the prophet for spells)
- Runesmoke Cavern (A hidden Malgrinnor cave)

In addition to the above, the area is teeming with wildlife, sporali, and the occasional undead.

Connecting to Undershore are the Ruins of Illsalin and the Stoneroot Falls.
Atop the waterfall in the southeast is Corathus Creep.

Been through undershore quite a few times in the past. First time I was when in undershore was when it was a new zone. Never really liked it. And it was always just a zone I had to go through sometimes to me. But, just did a daily, " the hot zone from teak in pok.". and with a level 60 berserker it was tough but doable. just slow going. When I killed that 5 th mob and completed teak's task I got 5 aa's. Wow ! Done it several times over the past few days and I like undershore more and more each time. Been killed several times but that's how you learn a zone.
Consistent XP and PP

I been boxing here from lvl 60 to 74 making 2500 pp pr. hour.
I stick to the beach in front of the big castle and kill all the Shiliskins that roam there. They are easy, low resists, predictable, no faction hits and each of them drop stuff that can sell for 10-30pp. The also drop gems that sell for 190pp.
The beach is a great place for multi kiting, I often run back and forth with +20 of them on my tail - great XP and AA :-)
I like undershore, very nice comfortable zone with lots of fun stuff and great graphics.
Hot Zone

I've been spending time leveling here from 58-65 and wanted to offer a couple of tips.

Generally speaking the mobs get tougher as you move from the south to the north side of the zone. The sweet spot from 58-61 is right in the middle of the map on the undead island. Some of the zombies are casters so they have low hp. Tanking with my pally, I didn't notice any hits higher than the 300s. With a slower it's super easy.

The wizard zombies will very rarely gate. I had two gate on me in hours of camping there.

The best part is, if you camp right on the south tip of the island (as it starts to slope into the water) you don't get any roamers. If you do setup camp there then be careful with the first pull. The zombies have a wide agro radius and you can easily pull all 4 that roam there. If you have a puller or mezzer then it's not a big deal. If you don't then just wait for them to roam apart.

Once I hit 61 exp started to slow down on the island. I found that the werewolf camp was better. At 62 some of the werewolves con white so they'll easily take you to 65. At 62 in a full group it's still 2% regular exp per kill.

One thing about the werewolf camp, though. There are shammy and druid NPCs so most of the mobs are hasted and have ds. I'm sure this is why people are saying their tank mercs struggle. The camp is definitely much easier with a slower. With that said, if you have decent dps then once the camp is broken you can start killing them as they repop. 99% of the time you'll get them before they have a chance to buff up.

On the northeast side of the werewolf section there is a spot in between two rocks, right on the edge of a cliff. If you camp there then you only get one roamer. The repop time on him is 15 minutes.

All-in-all I like the zone. Easy to get to, nothing except the undead see invis, good exp, and enough good camps to not have to fight with other groups over spawns.

Hope this helps.

Werewolf Camp
# Sep 16 2013 at 3:13 PM Rating: Decent
I just tried out the werewolf camp in the upper NW corner of the zone. These mobs are difficult to pull single, and are very very tough for the level. I had a full group of 56-60's and had trouble staying afloat. My healer merc was constantly OOM. These hit for 450's (average 250), seem to double and triple a lot and have around 30K HP.

If you have a strong tank this is decent XP, but not worth it in my opinion.
# Jun 29 2013 at 12:16 PM Rating: Decent
For me the zone was a little slow on the experience side until I found the ragepaw werewolves in the forest. I went from 60-63 in about 2 hours and can average about. 15-20aa per hour. I am also averaging about 2k plat an hour on trash loot. There are a couple casters here but they do not seem to heal or not that i can tell. I also managed to score the two rare rings that deop in this zone. The werewolves seen to drop the defiant gear moreso than the rest of the zone and I would highly recommend the werewolves for xp here. I could see staying in this zone till 65 for good experience but after that I will probably be moving on. Hope this helped.

The level range of this zone should probably be downgraded to 60-75. For one, there's a task you can do that's classified at 60 and for two, the starter mobs are worthwhile for fast killing upper 50's groups and 60 soloers. I left this zone alone till my nec got 65 and pet affinity, but I wish I ventured in sooner, especially since the mobs near corathus zone are mostly spread and undead.
solo missions?

Can someone please recommend a good solo task in CC or Undershore for a 70 mage?

MM Defeding the Grove - Freemind Cipher

Has anybody some hints for the Monster Mission at the Freemind Cipher "Defending the Grove" ?

You have to protect some sporlings from a Shiliskin Invasion. After over 1 hour of killing some soldiers or arcanists who come over 3-4 times an invasion of Zombies completely overrun the area starting at the left side of the grove.

With the two gardeners you can make some protection plants. If you hail them at start and tell them to "plant" then they plant some protection spores. But you have only about 7. We protected the sporlings with them.

The only possibility to defend the waves was to train them to the zone in point. Right after death you could then kill them one by one but I cannot imagine that this was meant to be. This mission seems really unrealistic.. not doable without these tricks... Wizards nukes are ok, AE-Nukes are crap, warriors are good but to no avail if you get a group of shiliskin and zombies.

Has anybody some ideas or was successful ?

Did the same as you. Probably the most useless mission with crapiest reward and hardest difficulty. Have tried this 10 times and cant seem to end it. Finally got it so we could keep one spore up but the waves of mobs kept incoming and after 2 hours it was pointless.

Monster Mission Progenitor at Freemind Cipher

Is not listed so far:

Freemind Cipher - Undershore
Mission: Progenitor

you start in RunnyEye.
1. Free sporling at level one with killing the three guards. There are three mobs who guard a sporling on level one. Stay on the right side and enter the room

2. Free 3 sporlings at level two. You find them at level two at the places marked at www.eqatlas.com with the figures (1), (2) and (3). At (1) you see a minotaur guarding the sporling at the bridge (not exactly on (1) but near that place). (3) is directly accessable. Enter the second level on the left way down. (2) is more difficult. Jump down the bridge at (1) to get to the area and fight your way to the mudman invader at (2).

3. Swim south to find Darkhollow. If you dive into the pool at the waterfall at (1) then there are two ways under water. Take the left turn and dive south to the end. If you meet the wall or click there you should get your message and the whole group is ported out.

Reward: the standard AA exp (i think must be about a little more than 1 AA at lvl66 or at lvl 70 1AA+2yellow+2blue).

Problem: I didn't find any loot or treasure so far. Does anybody have a hint ?

Pro and Cons: The Wizard is really nice to DoT or Nuke mobs down, while the Melee Root/Weaken the mobs. Works well on the bridge at (1). You need for the third part only one Melee diving down to south, the rest of the crew can stay at a safe place. Did all with 3 melee, 2 cleric, 1 wizard.



Mob at (2) Mudman Invader drops a face Item:

Mask of the March, Slot Face
Magic Item, Lore Item, Artifact, No Trade
Race: ALL

morphs to a
Mask of Due Diligence
with above stats at Rogue lvl 66
done in about 45-60min but is surely doable faster


Rare drop at the mudman invaders seems to be:

Silvered Nargilor Ring
Magic Item, Lore Item, Artifact, No Trade
WT0.5,size:small, Class:all, Race:all

transforms at lvl 60 rogue into:

Burnished Platinum Nargilor Ring
with same stats.

Since people read these things to learn something about a certain zone, it seems someone should post usefull info. Here is how you get to Undershore:

From Plain Of Knowldge

- Corathus Creep
- Undershore

And I would add if you have access to the guild hall you can use the portal to get to Undershore, near the zone in from Corathus Creep. I would assume this is also where a druid can port to.

Monster Missions to Level up

I think it should be said that while the MM's are great xp and you will level fast. Don't forget that you will not have the normal skills of a character of your now new level. While the MM's are fun, they do not give you the nessesary skill ups that you get when you are grinding out your xp in a normal although sometimes slow fashion. This will have an affect on you in the long run. I mean who wants a 70th level warrior in there party that can't hit the broad side of a barn, or a 70th level (any caster) who fizzles every time they go to cast a spell. Just a thought, have fun however you may chose to do so. Just remember that a balance of things makes a huge difference when it comes to making your character better than before.

dam it no edit anyhow when i said about my ema i was trying to say cuz i cant do omens zones is one of the reasons why i am being forced to do mms cuz of the great exp and all my guildies are doing omens ..

I feel your pain Zhasa, but as a guy that played EQ for first time in mid 2001 and still plays with 300+days played later (yeah , I am addicted to my friends and the game heh)it pains me to watch the unskilled fly passed me in levels and I pity the raid guilds that have to sift out a good char with an inexperienced player heh. Just because they did 15 of these DoD missions in 2 days...that be around 40 aa's sheesh.
Personally this game is called ForEverQuest to me and no race to the so called "end game"

If I wanted to "win" a game in 13 hours or less play time...I'd just plug in the xbox/sps and whiz thru heh.

Actually, I am happy that they "fixed" the xp for the WW mission.. that was ridiculous that you could get 2.5 AA's for 15 minutes worth of work.................

To be fair after you do one mission you have a lock out time which is most likely unproductive waiting time (15mins I think) so really it was 2.5AA for 30 min of work - which is still a lot.
RE: Thanks EQ...
# Sep 24 2005 at 12:00 PM Rating: Decent
i agree, actually.. not only 2.5 AA's but it was 17% XP too .. way to much for the little time on the missions
