  1. Polly’s Forest – Infinite HP/MP Pot. Combat/Skill EXP boosted. Good silver. Great mob density. What’s not to love about Mushrooms? Except it’s popular and sometimes crowded.
  2. Desert Naga Temple – very good mob density and close to town.
  3. Titium Valley Desert Fogans – good mob density, but difficult desert location.
  4. Roud Sulfur Works – good mob density and treasure rare drop.
  5. Taphtar Plain Centaurs – also an excellent grinding spot for Magical Shards and silver.
