Butcherblock is a massive zone, one of several large zones on the continent of Faydwer. It lies between Greater Faydark and the Ocean of Tears, and holds the docks for the boat leaving to Freeport on its edge. The dwarven city of Kaladim is one of the impressive sites in this region, and many tall ridges separate this region up into areas that are almost zones unto themselves.
Most of the danger here is represented in dangerous areas and camps. By far the most dangerous is the Chessboard, a very disturbing area that can easily be your grave unless you are extremely careful in hunting EverQuest Platinum.
Zone Benefits and EverQuest Platinum
Butcherblock is, by far, one of my favorite zones to start a character in. You could honestly never leave the zone, travelling within its confines until you reached 7th or 8th level, and you could adventure there even longer in a group. Eventually, the need for something elsewhere will drag you away, but I guarantee you’ll be back. One of my babies in the beta was a dwarven cleric, and I miss travelling in this zone.
That said, now on to the reasoning behind my beliefs. First off, the zone is never that crowded. It is so spread out that it rarely becomes a nuisance that there are too many people around, and there are entire areas that you can hunt in with maybe one other person as the only other player you see all night long. You get experience quicker in this environment as well as wealth.
Getting Items and EQ Plat
Playing the game and earn EQ Plat is not the fun thing playing the game. You can also gain profits as you earn platinum for your character. There are times that you don’t need platinum but you don’t know where to put or spend them. You can check the market place, become a member and sell your platinum for players who are badly looking for it.
