Hunting Locations: Pros and Cons
Please notice that l2world's current status might differ from these information as I will try to use correct c4 info.
Please use the option to edit the article and add correct drops, drop chance and as much exact information as possible. Thank you very much.
E.g. put correct drops and chances instead of simple "A grade" in the interesting drops box, link the armor drops to the correct armor set pages (nightmare drops to "nightmare" page etc), weapons to their pages etc etc, <3

Dark elven village area
location: the very northwest part of the old c1-c3 map, near the dark elven village.
level: starting area, very low. 1-15 max.
monsters: classic bunch of goblins, keltirs and whatnot. Spiders and zombies in the marshland. Zombies do drains as usual.
interesting drops: none
info actuality c1-c3 = world

Talking Island
location: one of the southest parts of the map and the only real island.
level: starting area, very low. 1-19 max.
monsters: classic bunch of goblins, keltirs and whatnot. Ruins are a bit more difficult as the mobs spawns are high and the mobs are often social and aggressive. There are golems named Crashers near the entrance to the ruins that are the highest level, one can even hit lvl 20 on them.
interesting drops: none
info actuality c1-c3 = world

Elven village area
location: Almost exact middle of the map, near the elven village.
level: starting area, very low. 1-15 max.
monsters: classic bunch of goblins, keltirs and whatnot. You can run to Gludio with no prob, meeting dryads and spiders on the way. Elven ruins are much more difficult as the mobs are again many, aggressive and social.

location: Unaccessible part of the map, can only be accessed by the gatekeeper, in c5 the area will finally be connected through the normal landscape.
