This works easily if you have high experience in Herbalism, First Aid, Skinning,
Leather Working, etc. Get the materials needed for what you want to make.
For example, for First Aid, kill lots of humanoids for linen cloth, wool cloth, etc.
Then, just sell the materials to an NPC. If you want more money (for example for
Skinning and Leatherworking), make something out of the leather, then sell or auction
it off at the nearest auction house.
In Ashenvalle, there are Rotting Slime that drop treasure chests with good items.
An easy way to increase the speed of leveling up is being rested. This will double
the experience from killing enemies only. Discovering an area will not get you double
the experience. An easy way to get rested is logging out at an inn. Whenever you know
you are going to be away from the game for awhile, try to log out while inside an inn.
This will get your player rested while you are away. To tell if your character is rested,
look up at the circle next to his or her portrait where it shows your level.
A "zzz" will be there instead of your level. This indicates that you are rested.
You can also tell if you are rested by looking at your experience bar. The experience
you have gained so far will be blue and all of the experience you gain will be blue until
you pass the small marker on the experience bar.
Where to find Ekeyakee:
In the "Ekeyakee" quest given by Segra Darkthorn in the CrossRoads, go northeast to
Grol'dom farm. Travel to the east side of the mountain, where you will find the bones of
a Giant Kodo near a tree. Stand next to the head and blow the horn. Ekeyakee will appear,
unless someone just killed him a moment ago. He will be standing next to the tail if
done correctly, and is a level 16 White Lion. Remember that this is a quest, and if you
kill him you cannot try again unless you get a friend to blow the horn and let you tame
it. If this happens, he loses the horn. You can get a new one from Segra by abandoning
the quest and getting it back from her.
To kill Vagash on the "Protecting The Herd" quest, it is easier just to get a group
with a healer ranged and a meat.
Learn how to fish, cook, etc.:
Go to a trainer and learn the basics. Once your done with the basic learning, open your
ability book. The ability you learned should be there. Drag the ability to your action
bar. Once there, click on it and it will probably say what kind of items you need or
where to go. Note: You must have the correct weapons to do this. For example, for fishing
you will need a Fishing Rod; and for Mining you will need a Mining Pick.
From there, once you reach a certain level in your abilities you can upgrade your weapons.
