I haven't played RO in years, literally, and I'm now starting an acolyte again. When I stopped, people usually went from healbombing zombies in payon 1, then on to the orc dungeon, then boguns and munaks in payon 3, then eventually zombie prisoners in the GH graveyard. Thought I heard graveyard is now no longer viable, and prison might be a better spot. I have no idea with these updates. So nowadays, what's a good spot to go to after Payon 3? --- My sig sucks.
With Firelocks you can still be killed the by the occasional Shinobi in there.You cant teleport to escape either.What you can do is use B-Wings last i checked and save that 1% exp everytime they show up

But yes, although Amatsu screwed GY, it added Firelocks. Just learn Pneuma and 10 Heal as soon as possible, then go rape them. Shinobi's suck, but Firelocks give enough exp to make up for the occasional death.
