the cursed forest isnt so bad once you know where the mobs are and how to avoid them ....when you enter near Druim cain go past the bears and follow the zone wall to the river this will take you past alot of aggro monsters without incident ...some of the monsters in here are mostly invisible so the best time to look around is during a rain storm itll allow you to see the banshees and stuff easier just check out some of the mobs in a safer setting alot of them can be seen in lough gur or the bog of cullen <black wraiths, banshees(lesser and greater) pookas, and probably 50 other things i cant think of off the top of my head> theres even some grand pookas around crimthain in hibernia's frontier....the main reason to go to the cursed forest is you can get 24-90 million in xp per pull and can chain your pulls with little to no effort if you have the right grp and the right location it just takes finding what grps can kill what and what mobs con what to what lvl ....for instance finlaiths come in grps of 2-3 depending on where you pull them from and if you have 6 ppl in your grp of lvl 46 they drop 30 million xp per fin thats 90 million xp per pull and with thre tanks a warden a druid and a mana chanter doing pbaoe its easy kills

Been there yesterday, at level 37. A guildy took me with him to have some fun for us both, and XP for me. Het is a level 50 Druid. With a nice pet.
At first we took on some Unearthed Cave Bears. We could just barely kill them. So we went to merge with another powerleveling couple. We ended up with 2 level 50's, a druid and a heroine. And a bard and Eld. The Eld is me.

So we went on killing those mobs. It went nice and easy, until we decided to go in deeper inside CF. I don't quite know the names of the mobs we pulled, but they were really impressive! We teamed up with 4 other level 50's, and still we had trouble killing. I never died tho, but sometimes it was kindodf scary.

Now for my reccomendations.

After you level to any level I suggest you take a walk there, it is impressive and it makes you wanna hit higher levels a lot earlier. I got sick of fighting the same models with the same textures on and on and on for weeks, so I wanted to take a look there. It worked for me.

Know that you need a good group there with at least 8 level 40+ guys. I mean this. You'll need the next combo, which is my favourite.
3 tanks, 2 healers, 1 warden, 1 eld and a ranger.
The tanks are for aggro keeping and the hackin' and slashin'.
The healers need to heal the tanks and eachother when the $#% hits the fan.
The warden, ofcourse, for the pulsing bladeturn.
The Eld is for the Direct Damage. To kill the mob a bit faster.
And the ranger to pull mobs out of a mobgroup full of aggro, and the nice damage they do.

#Anonymous, Posted: Mar 13 2002 at 8:15 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) This is mostly bogus. First, this isnt the epic zone.

First, this is very much the epic zone. The mobs needed to finish your epic quests are all found here, so yes, it is the epic zone. Got it? Good.

Took a guild raid and a some one unaware to start this fight. We had over 25 people on this raid/explore and it took several deaths and 5 min to take blight down. The sad part is he did not drop ANYTHING but coin. Talk about a mob not worth the trouble this is it.

"The mobs here are all 50+. Have a clue before you post."

You must not of seen the Wyvern Wraith. Right near it are some scorpions that con blue and yellow to me at 45.

Perhaps you should do some more exploring.

Poked around in there a bit this evening, after looking at these posts, eheh.

Found some nasty stuff there, including the Wyvernic Wraith, Fomorian annag, and the Skeaghshee. I sent in some screens, so maybe they'll get posted.

Nasty stuff...couldn't find the badger though *cry*

While the mobs I saw were very high level (upper 40s, low 50s

The mobs here are all 50+. Have a clue before you post.

No it doesnt need improvement. The monsters there are lvl 45-58/60 (not sure what max lvl is)

It would take full high lvl groups to clear a single monster.

Why improve when nobodys even killed anything yet?

It was hella foggy when I went in and ended up running head long into the pooka... Insta tele back to Mag Mell. Hehe.

Spent some time in my exploring days running through this zone once after I leveled. One word: SCARY! Most of the mobs seemed to be in the eastern end near the zone wall. I saw a huge badger named Levian-al, saw a 20 foot mob called Juggernaut (looked like a fat suit of armor, had a dual bladed axe on it's back), a 30 foot tall red skeleton named Blight, an Orey-eyed graunch (spelled incorrectly) which was also like 15-20 feet tall, the Grand Pooka (disappointing, looked like a normal pooka) and some two headed thing- got a screenshot but the name escapes me at the time. I got screenshots of most of the mobs, but none were very good (30 foot aggro mobs make for pretty poor photography models, i wasn't getting THAT close!) I may submit them to the site if i get around to it (takes a while and i have a short attention span) BTW don't be afraid to go explore after you level guys, you can't d-level, so who cares if you get jacked for 1347(+321) damage by a level 50+ mob :)

I take it that it was either raining or the fog was in, or you were running in circles. Theres plenty of mobs it Forrest! If there were only three that would be three to many as it would take a full group of lvl 45+ to take one down!Also as players grow to the lvl that they start to hunt this area Mythic will improve as needed.

Makes me thank god that I didn't die when I was level 25. I hit that level and decided to go on a wanderlust ot explore, so I looked on the map, saw "Cursed Forrest" and decided that it should be cool. I ran through some bears, some pookas, and some other things by a river. I stayed running around in there for about an hour, and actually ran out alive. Kind of makes me wonder how I didn't die in there now I'm high enough level to understand the game better.
