Hi guys I had this leve which required me to go to Blue Fog Camp, I finally got here by running there from Black Brush Camp, dodging all the mobs on the way, is there an easier way, besides hitching a teleport with someone else who's been there already.

Other than teleporting, you've just gotta hike it there. It took me a while to find it as well.

Bluefog - AHHHHHHH!

I got exceptionally lucky when I was headed there, because an adventurer of high level was ahead of me. The buzzards ate him and I slipped by. It's an adrenaline rush getting to places like these solo though. Wrist flick, anyone?

Some leve's tell you go go craft something there. I think I have a lv 1 or 5 leve send me there one time. It's both fun and really not fun walking there. Fun when the mobs spawn ahead of time and you can dodge them, not fun when the map is empty and you think "all clear" only to die because dem darned buzzards ain't showing on yer screen (wake up GFX card!!!)

Arghhh Blue Fog! X___X I skip all crafts related to that camp, and basically any other (coughNineIviescough) that are way out of my route while doing battlecraft leves. Anima's too precious for me to waste on one leve. I rather pick some other local leve for a different craft that isn't as tricky or doesn't take that long to get to.

Camp Bluefrog taught me to check the location of my "local" leves before I take them.

It's easy to get to. It takes what, like 5 min from camp black brush? The buzzards are easy to avoid. If you run behind them they won't touch you.

Definitely noticed this myself. Possibly site aggro only? And even then its not that far a range. Unless you're in the black shroud I don't think you should have any issues with avoiding buzzards unless you get some weird lag.

So are the billygoats harmless and what about the cockatrices I was so carefull to stay away from them all, stopping and waiting quite awhile so that they moved else where , before I moved. I died three times (buzzards)before working it all out, this run was the best "heart in the mouth" , of the game, as played so far.

There's definitely sight aggro, which means if you move behind the mob, you can usually get by them - just watch to make sure they've JUST moved into their position which means they won't turn for at least a few seconds and you can do the ninja slide.

A lot of mobs also seem to have a threat-display first if you're too close, which can help in the back-pedal and run situation.

Lolz same here. Even IF the buzzards are easy to avoid, i would not take the risk. Not for 1 or 2 low lvl Local Leves that gives you common material as reward and low exp. The Black Shroud has also one camp you want to avoid when choosing local leves.

The billygoats and cockatrices do not aggro.

Another fun camp to run to is Broken Water. You're running along aimlessly in a mob free figure-8 area and then bam, a ton of yellow dots load! Easy to get to, but hard to get back out. Buzzards and flying eyes! Best bet is to set your save point at Black Brush or Drybone and death warp out.

I confirmed that East route is a lot easier than the West one.
I can say that as I took the West route to Camp Bluefog and took the East walking back.
Except for Birds, there's nothing aggro along the East route.
As one post had said, there's a hidden route not shown in the map that leads to the camp.

The West route, however, is lot of fun and excitement (many deaths for me as well).
Necro Warning: This post occurred more than thirty days after the prior, and may be a necropost.

Nice to read my video card isn't the only one to fool me into thinking a high level area is empty then spawn mobs all around when your running deep in the area. I dread crossing bridges in this game.
