It is possible to run groups without pure tanks, by having a pet/scout/mage tank with 2 healers.
However it’s impossible to run a group without a healer, because heroic mobs dish out way too much damage.
The first part includes some general leveling advice to applies to every level and class.
The second part has a tier-by-teir look at where to get the best XP. GENERAL LEVELING ADVICE In my opinion, the best way to level in EQ2 is by solo questing, solo questing, solo questing.
The same thing goes for really good healers, although its more difficult to tell how good healers are because they’re really only as good as their tank.
However, what is usually the limiting factor in creating a group is finding a healer.
If you’re a scout, make liberal use of your stuns so you can unleash all your positional attacks.
If you’re a healer, don’t AA spec to make your heals better, spec for things that will let you do more dps instead. The first, and best type has an AE dps tank such as a Shadowknight/Paladin, two healers of a different healing type, a mana regen such as Illusionist/Coercer/Dirge/Troubador and 2 high AE dps classes such as Swashbuckler/Warlock/Wizard/Conjurer/Necromancer.This helps a TON with questing; especially if its your first time through the game and you don’t know where everything is. SOLOING The best way to solo, for pretty much every class, is to maximize your offense.In almost every single situation you’d be better off killing the mob faster than outliving it.Ever Quest 2 Leveling 1 to 80 Guide by Mezelline Howdy =) One of the most common types of questions I see on the boards are “where can I go get good xp at such-and-such level?” Well I thought it was past time that someone actually write a is divided into 2 parts.So usually what I’ll do is try to find a healer that will help start a group; then, if I find one, I try to find a tank.
