Mauradan is a pretty fast farm. You can get to the last boss pretty quick, especially using Angler's Fishing Raft.
After killing Princess, take off your gear and die. Can res near the entry portal to go back in (3-5 min. roundtrip kills)
Blade of Eternal Darkness has a high drop rate and it is...
This is from my observations:
Veiled crystals cost around 40g ea. in cost of thread (will need 200+ if you can't get Marks of Honor)
Freehold gives 200-240 cloth per clear, MOTHERLODE gives 300-360 but takes longer. Cloth per minute is about the same.
Freehold is easier. MOTHERLODE is...
While it is possible to solo Island Expeditions as a F2P alliance by getting Flynn to appear, the vendor is not available to spend your dubloons.
Horde has vendor available so you buy mounts/pets/transmogs.
Lv 10/11 twink arcane mage makes a mockery of the Island Expeditions.
East coast of Swamp of Sorrows.. Fish Stonescale eel schools and any Floating Wreckages you see. The crates give you rugged leather, thick leather, bolts of runecloth and other crafting items.
