Re: what level is the castle? (without any items of the mont

I recently tried as a Naturalists at lvl 16, with a bunch of +pp/hit so I could use Charge and Trample as my normal attacks. It was doable, but not easy.

Re: what level is the castle? (without any items of the mont

I guess there's a difference between the zone being doable at a level and being profitable at a level. If you're looking to create a farming zone for the lazy post-recton, then I'd say it's really not serving that purpose. If you're looking for an incentive to stay in after-recton/additional content...
