This Tibia Knight guide, or as you can say tutorial, is specifically made for those brave souls who wish to master the arts of close combat. A knight specializes in one versus one battle, although occasionally they cast AoE (Area of Effect) spells to fend off big amounts of creatures. Especially in really high levels, the fighting style of Knights can change significantly to those of massive AoE casters.
Knights are always welcomed in party hunts and with the premium spell Challenge “Exeta Res”, they are among the most sought out members in their friend’s VIP list. Swords, axes, and clubs are a Knight’s most important weapons, and along with good equipments and a nice shield, Knights are almost impossible to kill. As a Knight, your duty is to be the first in battle groups to challenge your opponents. Be brave, Knight! Your duty is about to unfold!
Note 1: Yalahar is not listed in any of the hunting places on the Premium User’s side on this guide. This is not to say Yalahar is bad, but because Yalahar is so diverse, you can practically hunt there at all levels. Not to mention, there is also a great dragon spawn there too.
Note 2: Especially in lower levels, some of the contents on this guide are similar to the contents of my Mage Guide. Please do not doubt plagiarism. Both of these guides are written 100% by me.
Level 1 ~ 8.9
When you start the game, you will be in the Tutorial Island. For fast leveling, it is recommend doing the tutorial quest, as you will be granted 150 free experience points (EXP) and some useful starter items. If you prefer not to do the tutorial, you can skip it by saying "skip tutorial" to Santiago, the first npc you see on the island.
When you finish Tutorial Island, the first thing to do is to kill “pigs” and “sheep” and get as much meat as you can. You can skip this part if you want to proceed to leveling earlier or if you already have a spare account on “Rookgaard” to supply your character with money. Once you fill out your capacity, sell them to the npc north-west of you; she is called Norma and lives in a mill beside a river. Remember; just keep on repeating this process until your character has at least 60 gp (currency). You can hunt some rats under the sewer if this process gets a little tiring too. With this money, buy a mace (or axe or a sword depending on your preference), a wooden shield, and a leather leg (approximately 35 gp, 15 gp at shop, and 10 gp at shop respectively). After that, in the house north of Tom the Tanner, do the Doublet Quest.
Now, you have the basic equipments. If you are a Tibia bot user, go to Al Dee's rats and hunt there (don't forget to use the "almost level 9" script). If you are a free account player, Al Dee’s rats are a good place to hunt too. After you reach level 3 in there, head towards the north of town and cross the bridge. You can hunt either in the bear cave, the troll cave, the wolf cave, or the house of monsters underground just north of the bridge. If you are a premium account player, you can either hunt at the rats on the premium side of Rookgaard or at the troll tower, bug cave, or wolf cave/plateau at the west side of the premium land.
You can also do the Chain Armor Quest, Legion Helmet Quest, or the Carlin Sword Quest while you are still at Rookgaard, but do not forget to sell them before you leave, as the next location, the Isle of Destiny, will provide you with free equipments according to the vocation you choose.
Level 9 ~ 20
Starting from now, you can train monsters on full-defense for better skills.
You can either go to Carlin or Venore, but make sure that before you go hunting, you have already bought the “light healing spell” (Exura) and a Dwarven Shield as they are extremely useful and fairly cheap. Personally, I like Venore a little more because it is relatively safer (to an extent). Buy a shovel and a rope if you do not have one, because you will need them to go to the Venore Swamp Trolls or the Venore Rotworm Cave. If you have decided to go to Carlin, make sure you buy a few health potions on the way and head straight north-west to the area called Folda. Remember, you are only level 9, so hunt only on the surface and the first floor. If you get bored of the place, you can also visit Femurs Hills to hunt goblins and sell the small stones for money. Thais rootworms caves are also a nice visit too.
I suggest going to the Edron Trolls and Goblin Peninsula as it is a good hunting spot for exp and money until level 10. To reach the Edron Trolls and Goblin Peninsula, go south of DP, into the sewers, head west, and after you exit the tunnel, head north. Leveling there should not be too hard, and you can also collect the small stones and sell them for a very good price (about 100 for 1k in my world).
After reaching level 10, you can start hunting rotworms at Edron Rotworms, Darashia Rotworms, or when you are higher leveled, the Port Hope Swamp north of DP (beware of slimes or terror birds) just make sure that you bring some health and mana potions in just case. At level 15, you can start hunting at Larva caves, which is a very good place for exp at this level.
Level 20 ~ 35
As of level 20, you should have at least skills of about 40/40 minimum. If you do not, it is recommended to go back and train up some skills. From the money you got from levels 9 to 20, buy a plate set and a level 20 weapon. If you cannot afford a level 20 weapon, buy a decent no-level weapon that has a good Attack/Cost ratio so that when you do have enough money, you will be able to afford a good weapon. Also note that this range of level is an ideal range of level for lowered level PKers (Player-Killers). Becareful.
Do the Desert Quest.
Mount Sternum undead first and second floor is probably the best place in Tibia for knights of level 20 to 35. It has a very good exp rate and also a very good gp loot rate. The only problem is that ghouls and skeletons do not drop food, so you would have to bring some mushrooms, and that sometimes there are a lot of PKers. Another way of getting food is to occasionally leave the cave to hunt a few cyclops and loot them. Do not forget to bring health or mana pots, as sometimes there will be lured crypt shamblers or beholders on the run.
Another good place for Free Account knights is the Fibula Rotworm Cave. The exp rate ranges highly, sometimes in the low 5k/h or sometimes even reaching 20k/h. When you are at Fibula, always bring a few parcels, as there is a mailbox beside the entrance (the guild hall), and also some health or mana potions, as this is a common spot for PKer.
At level 20, Premium account users should hunt at the Liberty Bay Rotworm. You will need a rope and shovel, so do not forget to bring them. If you have skills over 50, you can try going to Dworcs, which are located on the shore very south of Port Hope. Their entrances are usually hidden behind trees so just walk around and you will find yourself suddenly in a very dark place. Never forget to bring health or mana pots as they are very important and will keep you alive a lot of times. Ankrahmun’s larva/scarab cave and tombs are good places too.
If you want, you can also stay at the jungle north of Port Hope. While you are at it, you can also do the missions offered by the npc south-east of town.
Level 35 ~ 50
Wherever you go now, you should always be carrying more than one backpack of health and mana potions. They can really save lives. Now, you should already have an acceptable amount of money in your bank account. Do the Noble Armor Quest and the Crusader Helmet Quest. Sell the noble armor and helmet and buy a knight set (or a crown set if you can afford it). Also, do not forget to buy a good weapon and a shield because they are very important too.
Shadowthorn, Dark Cathedral, and Orc Fortress are the best places to get experience points at levels 36 to 50. Shadownthorn is a very good place to hunt. Even though it might be a little difficult and boring to travel there, the exp rate there would sure make the whole trip was rather worth it.
If Shadowthorn is not the place for you, you can also visit the Dark Cathedral. The Dark Cathedral is located south of Outlaw Camp and is a very popular, but far hunting spot. Don't forget to always stay cautious, as lured vampires or giant spiders could always be on your tail. Bring a lot of health and mana potions too. The next potion seller is 10 minutes away from you.
If you have really high skills, you can also try Ulderek's Rock, also known as the Orc Fortress. It is located north of Venore and east of Ab'dendriel. Even though the way there can be quite long and frustrating, it is still worth it because the exp rate can sometimes be as high as 60k per hour. The strongest creatures there are the Orc Warlords and the Orc boss “Warlord Ruzad”. Do not forget to bring a lot of additional health and mana potions; a full spawn in the deeper part of the castle can easily kill a level 60 knight. It is recommended to bring AoE runes, because like said before, orcs come in packs.
Premium account users of this level can either stay in Ankrahmun for the tomb, larva/scarab cave and the occasional dragon liar, or go to the Laguna Islands or Chakoyas.
To reach the Laguna Islands, you will need to do the Eleonore Quest. The strongest inhabitants of the island are the tortoises so it should not be very hard.
To kill Chakoyas, you will have to go to Inukaya. Chakoyas are not hard, so killing them should not be hard either. They can yield good experience points.
Level 50 ~ 70
At this level, things become to get fun for your character (except for leveling). The knight’s last spell “Exori Gran” can be gotten at level 70. Now, take this time to upgrade your equipments and try to make it good. With your money, you should be able to buy some very good stuff.
Level 50 for knights is such a burden for leveling because you are just in the middle of the minimum level requirements. Good hunting spots would be slightly too hard, but easy hunting places would not give enough exp. If you want to get through this level fast, you can either stay at the Orc Fortress (look at levels 35 to 50 section), hunt dragons, or hunt around the Plains of Havoc.
If you want to go to the Venore Dragon Liar, it is recommended to bring a huge supply of potions as Dragons and especially Dragon Lord's attacks can sometimes be very destructive. A common tactic used by players is to lure the dragon to a spot where it can only be killed 1 v 1. Remember; always stay diagonal to a dragon to avoid the unnecessary strong energy beam. Also, dragons run away at low health so be careful not to chase them too far or you will run into another big dragon spawn.
Another place for Free Account players is the Plains of Havoc. After the winter update of 2006, a bigger spawn of giant spiders have been added. Therefore, to avoid dying, always remember to bring a lot of health and mana potions and have skills of at least 70/70. If you do not have skill of 70/70, it is still okay to hunt there, but it might be a little more tiring and Giant Spiders would be a pain in the back.
A very good place for this level is Mistrock, but since Mistrock can be quite hard for players under level 60, it is recommended to continue hunting at the Laguna Islands, the Orc Fortress, or various dragon liars.
Mistrock is one of the islands in south west Yalahar and is filled with Cyclops. Hunting here can be quite profitable since there is a mailbox on the island and players will be able to parcel back their loot after each hunt and stay for days before heading back for supplies.
Dragons are also a very good source of exp and money. In fact, dragons are so popular that almost everyone above level 40 has gained a level from them. For premium users, Darashia has a really nice spawn, but since it is so good, chances are that they are usually occupied already. Ankrahmun has 3 small to mid-sized dragon spawns and can be good for hunting. Edron also has a dragon spawn, but is slightly more dangerous and is a little smaller.
