A Guide on Grinding in Navarn Steppe

The most popular grind spot in Kamasylvia part 1 is definitely Navarn Steppe. Players like to party up and clear out the area for EXP. Feather Wolves, the monsters in Navarn Steppe, give a relatively large amount of EXP compared to other grind spots.

Unlike Aakman and Hystria, you don’t need the best gear to grind in Navarn Steppe. You can also grind more consistent in Navarn Steppe while getting more EXP. Adding to the area’s efficiency, the location is close to Old Wisdom Tree, the first village you will encounter in Kamasylvia Part 1.

It might not be the best spot for large amounts of silver, but you will get about 20,000,000 silver (as a 230 AP Witch) per hour. This makes, everything considered, grinding in Navarn Steppe very effective.

Things to get before joining a Feather Wolf Party

There are a few things you should get before you start grinding Feather Wolves. First, you have to be at least level 58-59. You should also aim for least 220 AP and 250 to 270 DP in order to grind safely in the area.

Beneficial consumables to have in your inventory are: Milk Tea and EXP Elixir for more EXP, and Elixir of Fury/Will for stronger attacks. It’s also good to have some Elixir of Swiftness since you have to move along a long grinding route.

Movement Speed Crystals for Shoes are recommended. Alternatively, you can use Adamantine Crystals to increase Knock Down/Floating Resistance. For Gloves, use Intimidation to increase Knock Down/Bound Resistance.

Southwest portion of Navarn Steppes in central Kamasylvia

Navarn Steppe is located in the center of the Kamasylvia Part 1 region and is a vast area where animal-type monsters live. Head straight to the southwest from Lemoria Guard Post to reach the area close to the village Old Wisdom Tree.

The spot with the highest Feather Wolves population is the corner at 7 o’clock. Feather Wolves are usually grouped together in the region marked with red dots in the map below, so that is where players tend to party grind. Players usually move along a circular route while grinding. If there are too many members/total AP and Feather Wolves die too quickly, move along a bigger circle.

For maximum efficiency, ignore other monsters like Phnyl, Black Leopard, Belladona Elephant, Ferrica, or Ferrina. Be extra careful not to pull Black Leopard and Griffon toward your party, as the monsters are stronger than other monsters and might put everyone in danger.

A safe parking spot is marked with a yellow dot in the map below. You should park your horse in the forest across Navarn Steppe. If you park your horse in the middle of the path in between them, Feather Wolves might see your horse and attack.

Efficient EXP farming and stable active income

You will get about 2% EXP per hour at level 59 without any food or elixir buffs, which is a pretty impressive amount. You can get even more EXP if you use Milk Tea and EXP Elixir.

The most common lootable item you get from Feather Wolves is Feather Wolf Tail. Each Feather Wolf Tail costs 3000 silver, and weighs 0.1LT. You can get 5500 to 6000 Feather Wolf Tails per hour (as a 230 AP Witch), which equals 16,500,000 to 18,000,000 silver. You can get 2 to 3 per loot, and can get 4 if you spend on an increased Node Level.

Earth Spirit Stone Fragments are another common lootable item. Earth Spirit Stone Fragment is a material used in making Pure Forest Breath, but you can sell the item to NPC shops if you don’t need any Pure Forest Breath. One Earth Spirit Stone Fragment costs 50,000 silver. Other lootable items include Blue and Green Life Spirit Stone and Destruction Spirit Stone, and you might also be lucky and find Pure Forest Breath.

The total income per hour will be over 20 million, and the income will increase as your AP and your pet’s tier go up.

Go to Old Wisdom Tree to organize your inventory

You can organize your inventory in Old Wisdom Tree, a village located almost right next to Navarn Steppe.

You can sell Feather Wolf Tail and Earth Spirit Stone Fragments to NPC shops, and sell the two Spirit Stones in the Marketplace. There is no Marketplace in Old Wisdom Tree, so put them in the Storage first and transport them to Calpheon or any other big city.

The Storage Keeper is located inside the Wisdom Tree, on the left side. A potion vendor can be found on the staircase leading to the second floor, and you can repair your gear at the Blacksmith below the Wisdom Tree.
