    Mutamin's garden, firewine and ulcaster will provide you decent XP and items.

    However, if you are an experienced player I would try Durlag's tower. It's quite possible to do it at levels 5-6 , but you're gonna need a good set of potions and party tactics.

    You don't really *need* to go anywhere else before you proceed to Cloakwood mines. But BG1 is all about exploration.

    Follow your heart and go wherever it leads you. And don't look up the areas in advance to know if it's good for you. You will find content that is too easy, and also too damn difficult for your current party, and that is okay. You can always run away and try to tackle it later. An experience like that will lead to deeper immersion that could not occur in a streamlined game.

    I tend to push on through the mine to unlock BG city, do a bit of shopping then clear up most if not all the remaining wilderness maps. If there are certain quest items that I really want I might stick around in BG for longer, which may or may not take me so far as unlocking chapter 6. In most cases I will do the ToSC content Durlags Tower/Ulgoth etc then continuing with chapter 6 to end of game. My main reason for that is to have opportunity to use the loot from ToSC content.

    As others have said you can clear maps in any order and all content can be handled with a level 5-6 party. The first time I did Durlags Tower was an unmodded vanilla game with level 5-6 party and no guides. The body count on my side was high but I got through it all and had a heap of fun in the process.

    I always clear up any remaining areas after escaping from the Candlekeep catacombs - kind of IC reason to lie low for a while.

    Having said that, in EE my first move is always to solo Mutamin's garden (with Korax taking point of course) and obtain level 5/6 before picking up companions who will then auto-level to 32k XP! I think my current LE half orc Fighter/Cleric is finally a character I'm willing to take through the whole saga. Evil. But Lawful. Rarely murders anyone innocent without a reason. Normally escorted by two Skeleton Warriors :).

    I used to do this but it made the game too much of a ROFLstomp. I get more enjoyment now from the "old" way of getting companions as early as possible and grinding up from low levels.

    The great thing about these single players games is being able to customise the experience through mod selections, difficulty settings and playstyle to maximise your personal enjoyment. At times I have even re-rolled the recruitable NPCs with EE keeper to have fun party/personality combos without unbalancing the group. I had an all-neutrals party that had no warriors so I turned Xan into a fighter/mage and Branwen to berserker for example.
