    I have been reading the UOGuide website on Melee training, but gains just got super slow.

    Any tips on how to get it to 120? Any particular Spawn?

    Wolf spider with 100% poison weapon all the way to 120!

    Balrons or Exodus Minions at Dungeon Blackthorn.

    Edit: Get a 100% cold or 100% energy double strike weapon such as the double axe or scimitar. You get gains faster that way too.

    Just found out the Troglodytes at the Painted Caves are giving nice gains too. Thanks for the help!

    The bonus of doing Balrons in Blackthorn vs Trogs is that balrons give better loot and you'll get a few blackthorn turnin arties per hour.

    I can't find Blackthorn Dungeon in UOGuide. Is it under some other name?

    Balrons will also get your karma really high and get you to knight of honour in a breeze.

    To get there, just use a corrupted crystal portal and say "dungeon blackthorn" for trammel and "fel dungeon blackthorn" for fel.

    It seems that UOGuide doesn't have an article on it, but stratics does:
    http://uo2.stratics.com/dungeon-guides/castle-blackthorn-dungeon/

    Edit: Also, if you don't think you can handle balrons, try to secure a 100% cold or 100% poison weapon and hit the exodus minions area instead. Just be careful to not trip on a greater dragon on the way there.

    Is there a way to find all the monsters which are weak to cold damage? Some sort of search be resistance on old stratics database?

    EDIT: found it....after posting this I finally found it....

    Don't try to kill Balrons with a Soul Seeker... that's folly.

    Nah, I'm at the Painted Caves for now. The trogs drop pretty fast and don't stop coming. Gains are still good :D
