Funny how the noobie path I started out with back in 1999, and still often use to create new alts, is rarely mentioned by anyone else. Maybe cuz it's based on Faydwer, the "smaller" continent. If you make a dwarf, wood elf or high elf, it works great.
1. Greater Faydark or Butcher noobie areas: levels 1-7 or so...
2. Crushbone!: good for 8-16 or so, and always a blast...
3. Unrest: 10-30 doable here, also always great fun, and the run thru Dagnor's is a test of mettle, especially if you're not twinked.
4. The world's your oyster now! ;)
