At lvl62\63 am I too low for Nasc Hecks....should I be looking for a team rather than trying anything solo...
Just returned to Ao after a long break, so trying to get a handle on how to play the game again.....
Am I better off trying the Hecks or going to Elysium and doing stuff more my level.

Keep away from the water though as hecks can agro from quite a distance.
There seems to be a horror passing just beneath the end of the bridge to, guards kill it mostly but worth keeping an eye on the minimap, my enf soloed a heckler and while i was sitting healing up said horror started munching on me
The mini-map is essential in Ely IMO.
Get the nano and the monsters upgrade before you go there.
I usually get the map upgrades just befopre I go into the crippler cave dungeon. It saves a lot of time especially when you are not on your own in there.
It doesn't sap too much in the way of IP if you use the MAP NAV implants from the trader and advy shop. I get all the RK maps up to Longest Road at the same time. Not essential though by any means.
On an unrelated note remember that the shadowlands dungeons have periodic respawns. Every ten minutes. So check the clock when you experience the first one and make sure you are in the clear each time they happen.
I'm running into a problem in Elysium at level 75....
Namely, I can't seem to enter hardly any of its dungeons, especially the one you mentioned north of Stormshelter, Phyxr. I've tried seven or eight dungeon entrances so far, and up until now I've only been able to enter one of them. Unfortunately, that one contains Redeemed mobs that aggro, and I can't really kill them, since I'm Clan.
I know I'm at the proper entrances because I'm using Sphere Map, and the doors are smack on the blue dungeon squares. I've tried walking in, running in, crawling in, jumping in, hoverboarding in, walking in backwards... spent about 5-10 minutes straight per entrance. For a total of 45 minutes to an hour, just trying to zone.
I submitted a petition, but nothing yet, of course.
Meanwhile I'm killing those spiders (dangerous) while waiting for a Mortiig team. Would prefer to solo, but apparently the dungeons are broken.
Minimap has it's uses when you come to adonis to, seeing the stray dog before it aggroes sure is a good thing got the vet sl nano on my engi and enfo, best spen't vet points so far
I spent maybe a good hour looking for it with no result. Can you be more specific on how to get there please?There is a dungeon north of Stormshelter which I level in until I get level 100.
I had a hard time with this because the entrance to this static is right on top of a zoneline.
Go west from Stormshelter and the Unredeemed Statue. At the end of a little valley with Sun-el's and Cama-el's is a zone line for Southern Elysium. DON'T ZONE! Now look to the right of the causeway that runs parallel with the zone line. There are steps up onto the causeway that leads to the door for the static.

As a returning player who hasn't touched the game since pre-SL, I want to say a huge Thankyou to Phyxr.
Just a note at least 2 dungeons in ely have mobs a bit higher level, say 150+ the dungeon at tinker tower and one close to the yuttos i think in the center of elysium just north of the redeemed temple, could be a surprise if you enter at 50-70
A spot i used to frequent alot was tinker tower the beach just east of it has a lot of eremites, sure they blind but that is a minor thing, with minimap there easy to spot and there are plenty for a soler, there in the 70's and you can sell stuff at the yuttos at tinker tower.
They drop a lot of monsterparts and some pattern pieces but those are not to common.
Awesome guide. Always wondered if RK missions up til Ely hecks was the only way. Thanks for saving me weeks of endless RK mission grinding lol. I still think like a ol 02 player
Can't find the dungeon north of stormshelter either. There's a blue square on the map, where its surrounded by hylathins, but can't get into the door for some reason.
You know you've been playing too much AO when:
- You wish you had GSF while walking to school
- You see a guy in a suit and wonder if has a ...bureaucratic bodyguard somewhere >.>
