There is a really easy EXP exploit at the Ancient Cullis Gate in Darkwood. When you approach the Gate a group of Hobbes will appear. Kill the Hobbes then head toward the bridge leading away from the gate. Once you touch the bridge head back toward the gate and more Hobbes will appear. It is very easy to maintain a 20-22 Combat multiplier here with Physical Shield and you can consume loads of fish/meat/carrots for some huge early EXP! Confirmed to be working with the Earth Troll for higher level characters.
