Introduction

Hello, my name is Laos, and today, I’ll be your guide and assistant on a very popular topic – Farming.
This guide is a basic and very comprehensive guide on farming, a very hot topic in AQWorlds.

Sometimes, you really want an item, you might need Gold for it, or to a requirement for it. And that Requirement may need time and effort into getting.
You might be finding it hard to obtain gold, Well guys once you’ve had a little look though this guide, I’m sure ya’ll be up to date with the Farming hotspots and find it easy to obtain high price items once more.
So what are you seriously waiting for? Let’s get started!


What is Farming?

Before we can get all excited and jump wildly in our pants with excitement from this great opportunity, you may be asking the question – What is farming exactly? Good question, I’m glad you asked!

Well….. This is the general Idea when it comes to Farming:
(Taken from PD’s Mechquest Farming Guide)

quote:

1. You think you found a Quest/ Place/ Battle that offers good Experience/Gold/Both.
2. You will do that Quest/ Place/ Battle over, and over, and over again. (This the truly repetitive part of “Farming”)
3. Slowly, you build up a massive pile of Experience, Money (Gold), or both.
4. Once you have done that Quest/ Place/ Battle so many times, you will have found yourself with a large amount of Experience, Money(Gold), or both, depending on what you did to acquire those rewards that you have desired so much.

That’s what Farming is and how it works!

So that’s the general Idea.

Now, being who I am, I am well aware of what you’re thinking right now – Dude, that sounds like the most BORING thing to ever do! Well, hehehehe, luckily for YOU, that’s where the next sections come in.


Some General Tips

Well, inferring from the last section, you may think that farming is like, soooo boring, but think again, being the awesome MMORPG it is, there are several factors that making farming fun unlike other games:

  • First off, THIS IS AN MMORPG: This alone means you won’t be alone when it comes to farming! Chat, battle, Play Cool Music, and even make a few new friends while you’re at it farming!
  • There’s always a sign of motivation: Whether it’d be a cool drop, ranking up in Class or in Reputation (We’ll get on these Later).
  • The variety: Oh yeah baby! I LOVE it when farming isn’t mono-tonous. (And I bet you do too!) If you don’t like one location, there’s always another location that might be better for you!
    Also you should make sure you have a good selection of places to farm if your one of these “I HATE farming” guys.
    That’ll help to sustain your interest.These three reasons alone make Farming in AQW fun! As you see, it’s not as bad as farming, alone, boringly, without thrill.And now for some nice and refreshing advice:
  • It is always better to farm together, rather than farming alone! Take advantage of the fact that you’re playing an MMORPG, farm together, host parties or join them by using the appropriate =AQW= Let’s Party! thread. (I’m not putting links as the threads get locked and replaced quickly)
  • Use the Right equipment! – Don’t Just go running around in No Class Class thinking you’ll be rocking! No, the equipment and class is a vital part of the farming experience. I’ll expand on this later.
  • Make sure your enhancements are maxed out! – You need to be dealing as much damage as quickly and as hard as possible, otherwise, all I can say is that you aren’t hitting hard enough, and that it will slow you down when it comes to farming, and the whole cause of farming has been lost.
  • Use the most advised locations – Sure, you can kill lots of level 5 Zardman quickly, but is it as effective and rewarding as breaking down furniture at Sleuth Hound Inn? Location is also very important when it comes to farming. More on this later.
  • Use the Right Stats for Farming! – Stats is just as important as Class itself. You must find a build that is good to become a farming machine. For more info and help regarding Stats, please visit This really helpful Stats Guide for all things regarding Stats.And that, pretty much Sums up the Tips and Advice.

    The Ideal Equipment/Classes

    Ok, so there are two things that matter the most when it comes to farming – Equipment, and Location. Thanks to Kevinza, we have been provided with a summary of all the current classes in AQW:

    Warrior/Warlord/Beastwarrior/Pumpkin Lord-Good damage, good mana regen. A good all round class for all types of farming.
    Mage/Sorcerer-Decent damage, can reduce damage. Has an AOE. Good for boss farming, decent for weak enemies.
    (Beta)Berzerker-Very good damage, can reduce damage. Excellent for bosses, good for weak enemies.
    Rustbucket/Enforcer/Protosartorium-Good damage, has an aoe. Poor mana regen. Excellent for weak enemies.
    Ninja/Assassin-Good damage, decent mana regen, high evasion. Excellent for weak enemies, decent for bosses.
    Rogue/Leprechaun/Renegade/(Alpha)Pirate/Barber/Vampire-Decent damage, decent mana regen, high evasion. Excellent at farming bosses, decent for weak enemies.
    Healer/Acolyte/Witch-Poor damage, poor mana regen. Excellent support. Crucial for boss farming. Poor for weak enemies.
    No class-Poor damage, good mana regen. Good for annoying others.
    Dragonslayer-Good damage, good mana regen. Best used for draconians.
    Guardian-Decent damage, low range AOE, good support skills. Decent for weak enemies. Excellent for bosses.
    Dragonlord-Good damage, low range AOE, decent support. Good for weak enemies. Good for bosses.
    Star Captain-Good damage, 2 area skills. Excellent for farming multiple weak enemies at once. Decent for bosses.
    Clawsuit-Good damage, good mana regen. Good for bosses. Good for weak enemies.
    Doomknight-Good damage, decent mana regen. Good for bosses. Decent for weak enemies.
    Bard-Poor to decent damage, excellent support skills. Decent for weak enemies. Excellent for boss farming.
    Paladin-Just like Bard, only the healing is better, and that it can be used farm normal enemies

    To expand on the above information, you can always check out Trog’s Useful/Recommended Class Builds and
    Coolboipai’s guide to stats :)

    When it comes to equipment in general, the only thing that truly matters is the Enhancement, as that is what really makes your weapon do more damage. Other than that, all weapons currently have the same average damage, so it really doesn’t matter what weapon you are using, unless you want to streamline your look.

    Now that you have been educated in the Grand Art of Farming, there’s only one last thing to cover – Location!


    Location, Location, Location!

    Remember Earlier in the Guide I mentioned that Location is a key? Well, Time to Explain why. You may be built up with the though of – “Well, if I just kill lots of weak level 5 Zardmen, I’ll be at a high level in NO TIME!” Farming is also about getting rewards big rewards fast. Today, you will see and find out which locations are the Best. Since Level doesn’t as much in this game, partly since this IS an MMORPG, and because you don’t have to farm alone, any farming Spot is a great option to take advantage of. Even if you are Level 1, you can still farm off of level 20 monsters, simply because you have the help of others! See how much location can matter?

    Thanks to Furore for the Farming Spots!


    [AQWF4.1]
    Gold Farming

    Well, some Spots are specialized, some may yield massive gold, while others, not so much. In this section, you will see which spots can make you roll in Gold, well, let’s get to it!

    1. Dwakel Crash Site: Go there by typing in the Dialog Box -> /join dwakel-#### (The bolded extension is only for private instances)
    Basic Analysis:
    The Enemies are all level 15, with low HP, which yields great good experience potential. The A.I here is very aggressive, so any sudden movements can make them attack you for no good reason. That means it requires you to be involved to not die constantly. What players do is accept the first three quests, then turn in the rewards, and sell the items, as well as any items that may have dropped from the dwakels as well. The items from here sell for over 3000 gold, so it’s worth mentioning.

    What you need to Do: First, Accept the First Three of Tarvarya’s Quests. The ones you would accept if done correctly are Dam Balloons, Bumper Bolts, and Quadrolithim.Once accepted, all you must do is simply beat down any Dwakel (Here, It doesn’t matter what enemy you kill!) to get the required quest items. If you can, take any drops the Dwakels leave behind. Once you are all done with all three quests, go back to Tarvarya and complete all three quests at once. You should accept the items that are offered, which would be: Oculation Helmet, Battery Cell Pack, and Spybot. Sell these to any shop, and you should be getting at each round at minimum 7500 Gold per run. Keep in mind you can’t have 2 of the same items, so once the items are in your inventory, you must sell them, or every time you accept the Quest rewards, the Quest regard items will simply over-write the same items if they still linger in your inventory.
    2. The Black Knight: Go there by typing in the Dialog Box -> /join greenguardwest-#### (The bolded extension is only for private instances)
    Basic Analysis:
    The Enemy here that is being farmed, is the one and only Black Knight. He is an HP Beast, totaling at a grand 50,000 HP. You may think this is going overboard, as well as not deserving a spot here, but believe me, here’s the catch – The Drops that the Black Knight Has sell for 6250 Gold Each! Also, since you are able to bring in ten other people, taking down this beast will be relatively quick, and since the Black Knight has lots of drops, he drops often, like a Gold Pinata! Beware of Lag though.

    What you need to Do: First, you must have completed the quest Hardly Suiting Armor and have the item, The Black Knight Orb in your inventory, once you have completed the the Pre-exquisite quest, and have the Black Knight Orb in your inventory, simply go to the Black Knight Ghost in Green Guard West, and Summon him. The Slime will have run away, and the Black Knight will be there, waiting. Once you have defeated the Black Knight, and if if possible, obtained one of the Drops, Sell it, and come back to Green Guard West to fight him again. It might be a good idea to stash many of his drops at once, so you do not have to take as many round trips as possible.

    3. Vasalkar Lair: Go there by typing in the Dialog Box -> /join lair-#### (The bolded extension is only for private instances)
    Basic Analysis:
    The Enemy here that is being farmed, are the Three Muscular Draconians with REALLY Big Blades in the Volacanic Cavern behind Galanoth. The mentioned Draconians each have 3000 HP, as well as being level 10. There drops can sell for quite the amount. If you have lots of friends, and have completed All of Galanoth’s Quests, you’ll have lots of fun here.

    What you need to Do:
    Not Required, but It’s be really nice to have done all of Galanoth’s quests (For a convenient quick-and-close shop), as well as having your dragonslayer, rank 10. (For the purpose of farming speed) It’s really not required, but it helps, A LOT.

    Anyways, You should go to the Cave behind Galanoth, and arrive in the middle of 3 Draconians. If you are in the right room, There should be a Bronze, Green, and Purple Draconian, each wielding a Sword that is potentially bigger than yourself! Defeat each monster, and if possible, sell your drop in any shop. (This is why it’s pretty convenient to unlock Galanoth’s Shop). Each of these rewards sell for over 3000 Gold! Great!
    4. Forest of chaos!: Go there by typing in the Dialog Box -> /join Forestchaos-#### (The bolded extension is only for private instances)
    You will need to defete all seven dire wolfs before you can proceed to the Chaorrupted Bear.
    Basic Analysis:
    The monster has moderately low HP, And attack damage.
    Its always best to get your friends to come along and help you!

    What you need to Do: You need to farm the Chaorrupted Bear for his many drops.
    The drops are quite frequent and the sellback prices fluctuate.
    Its quite an easy task if you have 5 other friends with you :)
    5. Grizzle Spit: Go there by typing in the Dialog Box -> /join Boxes-#### (The bolded extension is only for private instances)
    Basic Analysis:
    Grizzle Spit has moderate HP, and low attack damage, meaning you can easily solo this monster from lower levels.
    Its always best to get your friends to come along and help you, but this one can be handled alone!

    What you need to Do: You need to kill Grizzle Spit for the Giant Protector Blade. It has a high drop rate and is worth 7,500 Gold.
    6. Miltonius Go there by typing in the dialog box -> /join Miltonius-#### (The bolded extension is only for private instances)
    Basic Analysis: Miltonius, well known for the hardship involved in farming. Well fear not! The room can only house two people at a time, so you can’t go off and watch YouTube videos when doing this. :P However, if you do it right, you can reap the rewards!
    What you need to Do:
    This place is great for EXP. You must defeat the Tained Elemental for his Tained Souls and Tained Cores. You can then use one of Miltonius’ many reagents to turn it in for Escherions Helm. Which is worth 12,500 gold. This process can be easily repeated many times for a truly great source of gold farming. [Preferred Level: 25-35]


    Experience and Class Points Farming

    Wish you could get high EXP and/or Class Points in a short time? Look no further, because your savior has arrived!

    1. Sleuthhound Inn: Go there by typing in the dialog box -> /join sleuthhound-#### (The bolded extension is only for private instances)
    Basic Analysis: Easily one of the best farming spots out there, Sleuthhound Inn has very easy enemies – Monsters with high EXP, and low HP. A simply 10 minutes of breaking down furniture in sleuthhound will get you a good 4% on your EXP bar, or more, no matter what your level is! And with freinds, you’re going to level up today!

    What you need to Do: Once you have arrived at the inn, simply go up the staircase in the Main Lobbby where the Inn Owner is, and go left, where there is a room of two furniture ghosts, that are close distance of each other. Simply beat down the Enemy on one side, and then other. There you go, you have just defeated two level 15 monsters, in just 1 minute’s time! Enjoy! [Preferred Level: 1-15]
    2. Dwarfhold Keep: Go there by typing in the dialog box -> /join dwarfhold-#### (The bolded extension is only for private instances)
    Basic Analysis: Not only is this a place that lets you rack in Good EXP, it also lets you bring in a juicy amount of Reputation (Which I’ll cover later in the Guide). The Enemies here have low HP (Save for the Chaotic Draconians -_-), and High Level, which means this place is farmable!

    What you need to Do: Once you have arrived at the City, (If you are using this place for EXP purposes (Reputation will be covered later) Simply beat down any Drow you see, and since it’s level 18 and it has only 1000 HP, which is really low for level 18, it’s easy EXP right there. :) [Preferred Level: 10-20]
    3. Hachiko Temple: Go there by typing in the dialog box -> /join hachiko-#### (The bolded extension is only for private instances)
    Basic Analysis: Not only is this a place that lets you rack in Good EXP, it also lets you bring in a juicy amount of Reputation (Which I’ll cover later in the Guide). The Enemies here have low HP (Save for the Chaotic Draconians -_-), and High Level, which means this place is farmable!

    What you need to Do: First, there are some pre-exquisites. You must have finished the Ferry Boat Quest, as well as beat Ryoku in the Tournament (Which he begins charging his Soul Nuke). After you do that, you are able to access Ai-No-Miko’s Quests. Hachiko will be unlocked! The Enemies here have low HP, which is 1000, and are all level 18. Simply Beat down any Enemy here, and you are farming! [Preferred Level: 10-20]
    4. Mythsong: Go there by typing in the dialog box -> /join mythsong-#### (The bolded extension is only for private instances)
    Basic Analysis: This place has a lot of musical elements to it. The enemies are spoofs of many famous elements and names of Music, from Tuna-A-Fish, to the Beatles, they’re probably in here. The place has high-leveled monsters, with quite the low HP to kick in it too. Now, what does this simply mean to you? Easy. EXP. Farming.

    What you need to Do: Since all the enemies here are quite farmable, there’s really no routine you need to do. Just make sure you are beating a lot of Beatles and Tune-A-Fishes up. [Preferred Level: 20-30]

    6. Backstage : Go there by typing in the dialog box -> /join Backstage-#### (The bolded extension is only for private instances)
    Basic Analysis: A room created for the Lorestockapalooza event, that is only assessable by Members.
    The monsters give high EXP, have 1840HP and with a 6 room limit, that shouldn’t be a problem. (Good for classes that can target multiple enemies at a time)

    What you need to Do: This place is great for EXP. Enter the second room and fight the Pyrotechnician’s. Although it is not required, a class that can multi-target is a good thing to have here. If you can meet the preferences here, this place is no doubt an excellent place to farm. [Preferred Level: 20-30]

    7. Arcangrove : Go there by typing in the dialog box -> /join Arcangrove-#### (The bolded extension is only for private instances)
    Basic Analysis: Arcangrove, the home to the 7th lord of Chaos, Lengermayne!
    The monsters there give 260XP and have relatively low health. (Good for classes that can target multiple enemies at a time)

    What you need to Do: This place is great for EXP. Although it is not required, a class that can multi-target is a good thing to have here. If you can meet the preferences here, this place is no doubt an excellent place to farm. [Preferred Level: 20-30]
    8. Sandsea : Go there by typing in the dialog box -> /join Sandsea-#### (The bolded extension is only for private instances)
    Basic Analysis: Sandsea, the home to the 8th lord of Chaos, Tibicenas.
    The monsters there give 320XP and have an average amount of health, not a problem if you have some friends with you! (Good for classes that can target multiple enemies at a time)

    What you need to Do: This place is great for EXP. Although it is not required, a class that can multi-target is a good thing to have here. If you can meet the preferences here, this place is no doubt an excellent place to farm. [Preferred Level: 20-30]
    9. Northland Forest Go there by typing in the dialog box -> /join Blindingsnow -#### (The bolded extension is only for private instances)
    Basic Analysis: Blinding snow.. I would go as far as saying, ‘its as good as Backstage.. only for non members to!
    The monsters here have 1800HP, now that’s actually less than Backstage. In return you get around 315EXP. Nifty eh? :P

    What you need to Do: This place is great for EXP, especially for non members. You need to kill the Chaos Gemrald’s for their EXP. I wouldn’t recommend you have allot of people with you, because the monsters die pretty fast and without a class than can hit multiple targets, your gonna find yourself forever chasing in circles. ;P [Preferred Level: 20-30]


    EXP BOOST!

    Well, you heard me people. That’s right folks – Now, for only 150 AC’s, you can DOUBLE the EXP you get for 1 hour! If you use one of these spots, while using this item, for one hour, you will gain EXP faster than Pomeranians running away from the Dog Salon! (And that, is pretty fast). If I were you, and I had a LOT of AC’s to burn, and if you’re not at the level cap yet, this is one investment you WON’T regret!


    Reputation

    Now for Reputation. Reputation was a new system that was introduced when The Chaos Dragonlord Vath Saga was released. This system is that each time you complete a quest, it will fill your reputation meter, in turn, with enough Reputation you can “Rank Up” like Classes. In fact, it even uses the same amounts as Class points. You may see how much reputation you have for your rank currently by first, clicking on your little menu on the top of the game screen that shows you how much HP/MP you still have. Click on it, yes click on it, and there should be a drop box. Click the option that says reputation to see how much Reputation you have currently. Now you may be thinking, this is going to take FOREVER. But , there’s a catch – Depending on your rank, you will get a special weapon from the reputation shop depending on your rank? See how rewarding it can truly be for such hard work?

    Note: Since I am not able to cover reputation Farming in-depth as I would want to, please, please. Read Beowolve’s Reputation Guide for Reputation Farming Purposes.
