I've always thought this would be a good place to level up a noob mage. In mission 3 of the New Frontier Quest you are instructed to go up the mountains and find an NPC named Lazaran. Underneath him is a very large cave full of ghouls and skeletons and I have never seen anybody hunting there. You need up to mission 3 to be able to go up the mountain.

A few problems with this area is that you need at least mission 5 completed to use the depot in farmine, and mission 8 to access the shops (potions). It is possible that you could use the steamship after your hunts and go to edron and deposit, and then refill (potions and brown mushrooms) at the ivory towers in Edron.

Thank you!
