Most of Epic related items or normal drops do not happen when the zone has gone HH. Check the baz or ask in chat if anyone has one you can have or buy. Or wait till HH is over.
Still a good zone as poster said below

If you are of the right level (I went in at level 11 or 12) and have a J1 tank merc, you can do well here still.

Make sure to gather those belts and shoulderpads to hand in at Kaladim!

they should revamp a lot of zones. Not like the mm/paw revamps but zones that people just fly through. Like you used to be able to get groups in cb all the time, and it actually took time to get good.
Now days its noobie01 buys 100000pp online. noobie01 buys tons of twink items
noobie01's faction with e-bayers has increased!
noobie01's faction with hard working eq players has decreased!
noobie01 goes to cb at level one, who has 2k hp w/o buffs, solos TR for 3 hours goes to pc for 4 hours and then there 25. Now noobie01 goes to ot decides xp is too slow. noobie01 buys an online pl from a random stranger. noobie01 has spent $1000, and is now level 50. noobie01 goes to wos to look for a group with no skills, gear that is now **** for his level, and gets mad when no wos groups want a level 50 cleric. noobie01 finally finds a group, and on the first mob that comes, noobie01's alteration skill is 82 and the main healer. Ubertank01 asks for a heal when hes at 30% and hes actually worked for his levels, and has played game for a long time. mob01 kills ubertank01 and now they all die. your faction with eq players has decreased!

what i am suggesting with all of this, is that they revamp zones, so that they require grouping/ and getting their skill up. Also if they had zones instanced for noobs where the mobs strength was based on the people in it. ALso if they got gear that could be twink gear, like the items that require a certain defense skill or something, so that they have to be good enough to actually earn their stuff.

imo it would be pretty cool if they made these zones harder all the way up to those 65-70 zones.

They'll never revamp old zones to any great extent. That would defeat the purpose of releasing new expansions that cost money to buy. They want players to abandon the old zones and move to the newest expansions as quickly as possible. That won't happen if they revamp the old zones to keep them current.

Dadly, most of what WarpedMonkey said back in 2005 --- still holds true now in 2011 !.....just more of em running around....but not even playing....between getting Pwrlvled and buying TA's left and right...they are now lvl 85-90, 500-2k aa's and can't cast a spell w/out fizzling 20x in a knowledge of "how" to play that char in a grp situation.....nor do they act like it! It's somewhat obvious when a lvl 80+ has to ask how to get to Crescent Reach =O

....But, as long as the game lives be it, just hope they're not all on my server =P

Only problem is there are not any groups to be found from 1 to 50 anymore. I recently got back into the game and I have gotten 1 group and it was with 2 people in PC around 17. We stayed there till we hit 23ish and that was the last group I have been in. I am lvl 59 now. Only people I ever see LFG are 80+ now because most players are 80+. If it wasn't for mercs the game would be almost unplayable for certain classes trying to level from scratch.

RE: faction
# Oct 06 2005 at 7:03 PM Rating: Decent
It will lower faction with the Indigo Brotherhood (Dark Elf Warriors). This is NOT the guard faction (DreadguardInner/DreadguardOuter), so it shouldn't really matter for you, because you should have no reason to go near the Warrior guild in Neriak unless you're a DE Warrior.

A multitude of people left for EQII.

I used to be able to just go to a Wayfarer camp and join a group that was starting there. Now you're lucky if you can find someone willing to join an LDoN at all.
great xp
# Jun 26 2004 at 6:15 PM Rating: Decent
What a great zone, excellent xp and good bonus by handing in belts; which I gathered a the rate of approx 10/hour. By getting in group and camping throne room went from level 13-16 in about 3 hours. There was never a shortage of similar level characters to group with and groups with average level of 13-15 can camp throne room with no problems, just make sure nobody pulls Dvinn, he hits very hard:( as I found out to my cost.

PS. be carefull if you try to free the slaves using the keys that drop, went in to free them and got jumped by an orc slaver, was kicking his *** till one of the slaves started healing him, ended up having to run for it. And to think I was trying to help the slaves.

Question often asked here is Dark Elf faction and how it will hurt them if they hunt here. The faction is the Dark Elf Warrior faction and if not a DE warrior it is great to hunt here till 16 b4 hitting the bandit camps in PC. If a DE warrior you'll get hit bad on your own faction and not advisable.
Great experience!!!!!

WANT GOOD EXP? Go to the wall with a cleric around 40th lvl and have him/her heal and buff you while you pull outta the castle....I went in to CB with a 8 warrior,and in a half-hour he was 11!!! ok hope it works for you.

Hey I have been in Crushbone a very short time but I have already gained 2 levels. The first level I spent in the Throne Room but I was with a group that was a much higher level than me. The secong one I spent in the Slave mines with a group the same level. I want to go to the Throne Room again but this time with a group nearer to my level. I am level 14 does anyone think I can servive in there with a group of 4-5 people all my level? If not what level should I be. I am open to anything and everything.

... there is an elf there who is for a rogue quest... however, he will kill you on sight... apparently, if you don't take up the stupid quest, you are KOS to him... his name is Kyunn <if my memory serves correctly>... anyways... for anyone who has seen this clownshoe... he's kinda tough for his level... he's about lvl 10, but he'll backstab you without thought... he killed me when I was lvl 11... too bad he met me 11 lvls later... so this is what happened...

You say, "Hail, Kyunn."
Casting a spell...
Careless Lightning does 117 points of damage to Kyunn.
You have slain Kyunn.
You say, "That rat ******* desreved every single last point of damage... conniving arrogant prick..."
Your teammates disagree with you and you have been expelled from the group...

okay not so much as the last line... but you druids know what i'm talking about... he got smoked... just like that flying f*ckface Retlon... he got his come-up-in's... more than once... who cares, when will I head to ak'anon..?

This place is the best. Until you lose your body. Ran by a cantaurian and junped across water he runs away I figure I'm in the clear. So I start looking for my body. So I look down one side don't see anything look down another don't see my body but do see 2 legionaires and 5 centaurians charging down. I look to my choices try and fight=death, run=probable loss of body, run while looking for body=it might work. I find my body get my stuff then bam you have been hit by a centaurian for 6 points, you have been hit by a legionaire for 40 points loading please wait.

Good zone for lvl 14-18
# Mar 18 2003 at 3:49 PM Rating: Decent
This is the best zone I have found since i've started, but if your a hight lvl you might want to try to solo the trone room! The trone roon is the best place to train, and get money. There are 2 slaver camps witch are good for getting parts for noob wood elf armour quest, ere there a camp where they are a few lego and orcals and a quest monster, and that is it. A good place to train under 18-20. Can any one tell me where i sould train now, lvl 17 ranger, dont need any group.
RE: Good zone for lvl 14-18
# Mar 20 2003 at 5:48 PM Rating: Decent
hey at your level <actually at lvl 15 unless you desire faction> you should already be outta CB... at lvl 17, you should be at Unrest, or or Antonica... the throne room is good exp at lvl 12 till lvl 15... but you shouldn't solo... you get more exp if you group... a full group gets a 45% exp bonus, and you need it!! so i say forget the orcs, Paludal Caverns, Unrest, or Highpass Hold would be great for you... not CB
RE: Good zone for lvl 14-18

i disagree. i took my warrior in TR from levels 14 to 18 and it was INCREDIBLY fast. Some of my funnest EQ moments came in that area....

Let me tell you about an idea i had one day. I was running through Grater faydark and i had accedently attacked a nexus at the wizzy spires. Needless to say that i was killed Instantly. I was extreamly mad because i lost my exp. Through my hatered i studied the creature and i devised the most extravagant scheme ever. I was wondering if my fellow Citizens of norrath would aid me. Darkies and Lighties come together in a mass horde to take one down. "What's in it for me" a person might ask. Well i think that not only the feeling you get from uniting with all of the inhabitants of norrath to squash a common evil but a great possibilty of an uber pay off and Extream exp or maybe nothing just a cold hard defeat.I am not really sure if they drop anything or if they even give exp.They are most likely the least killed Npc in the game. I have heard of one or two being killed but to my knowlage no loot has ever been identified. There are only a couple of reasons why i have not been able to find the loot items either 1. The uber guild who took one down came up with an awsome item that they dont want to get nerfed because of 1000000 crying lowbies saying its too powerfull so they did not add it to new item lists 2. None of them have ever been killed 3. Normal Loot for lvl of mob 4. No loot :( Now i am not really sure yet of the master plan but i am thinking along the lines of a massive head on attack group attack at random with no aperant stratagey.A person could even make a mule char and lvl to 5 or 6 toe just for this battle.Toe to Toe with the Unchecked Evil of the world. Or i have got a more methodical aproach. Either way i could be just stupid or really tired but that is my idea and i am willing to set up shop on any server. e-mail me at massive_nexus_strike@YHAOO.COM if you have any ideas, you want to join (( lvl is of no importance 1-65 doesnt matter Class either warriors clerics shaman monks i am in need of warm bodies :) )) or you just want to flame about how stupid i am either way i will welcome your emails and i will try my very best to email you back .No matter what it says. More information on nexus is always welcome. E-mail me and give it a chance.

Happy hunting and good luck.

People, honestly COME ON, correct me if im wrong but this is NOT a high lvl zone for the most part...there for I refuse to accept the possibility (even though there isnt one) of there being a DRAGON in Crushbone. I mean...that is a HIGH LEVEL creature...try 60-65!!! Gimmie a break, happy huntings :)

Anything is possible if SOE wills it. I remember not so long ago a Drake (Which I think Krby meant, not a dragon) flew across the sands of the Oasis of Marr looking for her lost eggs which were planted on random Asps in the zone. After giving her an egg, she gave you a reward. I heard one person recieved a Cloak of Crystalline Waters.
