Find a safe place to hunt where mobs can’t reach you.
If you are coming from the de starting place there is ruins on your left/east side of the road as your coming south towards Gludio. When you see these ruins go east directly from the road to a small house that has a porch on it. You can go to the south west corner and safely hunt mobs from this porch.
This really only works well for non-melee classes.
