How to make Plat on Project 1999

In classic Everquest, making plat was no easy feat. No auction house or any other features you now expect from Mmo’s. Everything is sold through the chat or to vendors.

The first thing you need to know about making plat on the Project 1999 servers is that the East Commonlands tunnel is where it happens. The East Commonlands or EC is a zone right next to North Freeport. Once you zone into EC you will most likely see your chat flood with /auction messsages of people trying to sell their stuff. This is where you want to be when you’ve got loot to sell and leveling here from around 3 – 10 is smart since you can sell your loot in the same zone. read more

Maj’Dul Plat Guide

In Maj’Dul you will find collectable ! pages all over the zone, like a Tale of the Arena, The Desert Serpent etc. Most of them in the northwest corner in the Midday Market. These pages are worth anything from 5g to several plat each. Most of the ones you find here will be in the 5-50g range but you will find a lot of them.

In about 5 minutes in the zone you can get 10 – 20 pages. So in an hour you can get 100 + pages at least and it’s all real simple. Just start somewhere and make your way around the zone in a circle. Pick up every page that you see. Even if they all were just worth 5g a piece you would still be getting so many that you can make 5 plat in an hour. Just remember that all of them wont sell at once you there’s no need to farm here for hours and get hundreds of each, but it is still a nice place to hit up once in a while to fill up the broker. read more

Plat Guide : Mistmoore Collectibles

For this Plat Making Guide you should be a few levels above level 80 in order to have everything in Castle Mistmoore and Mistmoore Catacombs greyed out. Once you are good to go, head to the Loping Plain and Castle Mistmore.

What you will be looking for :

Discarded Ribcage : 30p

Crypt of Decay Plat Farming

The Ruins of Lxanvom or the Crypt of Decay, is a Planes of Power era zone that can easily be accessed from the Plane of Tranquility. The entrance is in the upper eastern corner of the Plane of Tranquility. You can make a lot of plat here fast, but you should be pretty high level to solo here efficiently. Optimally you want everything to be greyed out so you can blast through the zone and AoE the mobs.  If you have everything greyed out though you can pull MASS amounts of mobs and kill them very fast and hardly take any damage at all. If you don’t have AoE capabilities yourself, be sure to bring a AoE mercenary. read more

Wailing Caves Plat Farming Guide

The Wailing Caves is a low level dungeon in the commonlands, mobs here are around level 15-20 so you can mentor down pretty early and dominate this place, making it a good place to make plat from early on. Anyone level 50+ should be able to solo here efficiently for plat. We won’t be looking from anything in specific while farming here, just blast through the dungeon and loot everything. Try to get to the bosses as often as possible to get Masters and other goodies. Even though the items here are low level, some of them can fetch quite a few plat on the Broker. A good way to make some extra plat is to send a message in the chat that you can boost low levels through here since you are going anyways. read more

City of Mist Plat Farming Guide

The City of Mist is a dungeon located in the Emerald Jungle on Kunark. It’s a east zone to farm for a lot of plat at level 65 + or so. And it is a great zone for F2P (Free 2 Play) Players as you get a lot of plat and vendor trash here. You can of course make decent plat here while leveling, but if your only goal is to make plat i would suggest that you are high enough level for mobs to be greyed out. 70 or so is optimal. Since it’s a Kunark zone, the mobs here have very low health. At higher levels you can AoE packs of mobs here and make even more plat. read more

Obelisk of Ahkzul Solo Plat Farming Guide

The Obelisk of Akzul is a group instance from the Shadow Odyssey era. It is originally designed for groups at around level 80, but most people should be able to solo it at level 90+ or with a mercenary. You can do this instance once per day per character and it is a real plat mine so i try to do it every day.

To get to the Obelisk, head over to the Moors of Ykesha. And the instance is a short flight east from where you enter. You should be able to almost see it from the zone in. Once you are inside start clearing all the trash. Once you have killed the trash mobs in the first room you will be able to go to the second room. I like to kill all the mobs here as well to get the boss to spawn but this is not necessary. This room also usually have 3 + shinys that can be worth quite a bit. When you are finished, head through the corridor to the next room. The boss here “Kierax the Energy Wielder” is where you will get your plat. Jump out into the middle of the room and you will start floating about. The key to this fight is to absorb all the orbs that appear before Kierax does. If he gets the orbs, he will aoe you and you will die not matter what level you are. When you have killed Kierax, loot his chest and get about 10 plat. read more
