If this is the spot that I think it is, there's a tower site there which can get annoying at gas cycle times.

Guess he is referring to the spot in the northern part where you can zone over to Wailing Wastes. Yes, there is a tower site, but there are gazillions of mobs lurking around. You can't even see the grass sometimes. Guess checking the towersite beforehead might be a good suggestion...

Hey guys :)

I dunno if anyone's mentioned this, but in Lush Fields there is also a spot called SE Mines; at that spot there are lots of level 36-38 shades spaced a bit apart from one another. Pull as many as you can find - about 20 to 30 at a time should be possible - and run into the city nearby (Twisted Desires AI city) then AOE the group down. Was able to go from 21 to 33 in a rather short amount of time, and once I pick up lil Pyro again I'll probably move on to NW Mines.

I'm new at kiting and decided to go to the claw camp in pleasant medows. I was getting very good exp there at lvl 50 but the a lvl 167 comes and are starts killing everything. Those mobs have to be grey to him so why was he taking them?

I gave that camp a go at level 48-49 with my NT but failed horribly (see sig). I suppose higher levels farm them in hopes of getting a rare ID drop?

Yeah, these claws have a relative high droprate of Grid Armor MKI (or was it II?) ID's and Nullity Sphere ID's. I found NS twice over there. Take in mind this is relative: you still have to kill tons and tons to get one.

What is with the new big slayer droids at claw camp? they don't stop me from kiting they just stop me from looting. Were they put there to kill the camp?

They are "new" for a while now; they have been implemented as part of a quest (guide) a while ago. They often get trained away by higher players (usually to help their lower toon or somebody else kite the place) so that you can kite and loot in peace - in case you can outrun them, you could train them to some zone-border yourself. ( I don't really understand why you can kite them, but not loot btw...)

The reason I can kill but not loot is because I kite the slayer driods and the claws together and I'm only lvl 56 so I run out of nanos after all the claws die but long before the slayers die. So then I have to train away and come back and by the time I do that I get to loot maybe 2 corpses if the slayers aren't camping them when I'm back. I guess someone has always come before me and trained the slayers away cause this was the first I've seen them. I will try that next time but I always thought mobs walk back to their spawn points after some period of time thats why I didn't try that before.
Thanks,

They don't go back to their spawn point, unless the server is reset. They are not too hard to train away even at low level, as long as you can run pretty fast.

The pipe is rather in the middle of the map, bit more to the West. So, SW of outpost and NW of Spring and NE of SW mines. Just hope I remember correctly :P. Somehow I didn't see your post yet, I hope you already found it by now :D ...

I would assume you're at least about level 80? Slap on some good NCUs, get a few outside buffs (GSF, HnQ, NCU buff, Mochs if needed) and go straight for borgs in mort. There's a camp north north west from the typical mort crater that has a handful of borgs if you find the spawn rate too slow.
