Recon Missions - Go out a day or an hour prior to when the static gets on to check the areas out. See where the mobs are, where the PTs are camping at, and most importantly getting that area in my search menu. It is essential for checking how many PTs are currently in the zone at YOUR level. It can easily be the deciding factor before taking 6 people to Kuftal or Crawler's Nest.
1) How are we getting there?
2) Where is camp? Do we need oils and powder to get there?
3) What mobs are we fighting? Do we need certain items to fight?
4) How many PTs are there at the moment? (Use Search and number of people at your level in the zone and also the number of leaders)
5) How many PTs in Jeuno are in our level getting ready to depart? Are the going to the same place we are? (Check Jeuno for PTs at your level)
6) How are we getting back? (Bring a Black Mage - Or Instant Warps/Warp Cudgel)
7) I also remind everyone to reset signet before leaving Jeuno.
8) How long can we stay there? Do I know how to get there?

Meriphataud Mountains

Camp: the first rock bridge across the road
PT Lv 11-13 - Enemy : Hill Lizards

Camp: Worm Room - (C-8)(D-8)
PT Lv15-20 - Enemy: Land Worms
Details:I know he mentioned about wandering around in the first few passageways, but anyways. I don't have a map right in front of me, and its been awhile since I've EXP'd there, but if you take the Upper Road through Korroloka (as you enter KT, you take the first left you see, and DON'T fall off the bridge), you will come to two rooms seperated by a short length of bridge with small pools of water. This is where Morion Worm is spawned. This room can spawn up to 5 worms, and the "Room" (more like a hallway) can spawn up to 4 of them. If you have a mostly Mage party with a ranger or two, you can kill these worms in record time. I've gotten from Lv16 to Lv20 in the matter of a couple hours here. The exp literally flies, 170, 200+ each, for Constant Chain #4s. The occaisonal Morion hunter isn't a problem, as they don't need to kill worms to get Morion to spawn, so that's also good. Just ... stay away from Morion if someone spawns it, just in case it decides to use an AoE attack.

Camp: Outpost (G-11)
PT Lv26-29 - Enemy: Goblin Furriers
Details: Widescan is a huge help here. Watch for the Roses, they are 50+. Since these are ranged Goblins, ensure the puller runs past the PT, otherwise you have to run out to it.

40's

Yhoator Jungle

Camp: Tele-Yhoat Crystal
PT Lv37-40 - Enemy: Worker Crawler
PT Lv39-42 - Enemy: Master Coeurl
Details: Right inside the ring of stones on the Telepoint. Really on room for 1 PT, could possibly do 2 if coordinated and maybe not doing the same mobs for XP. Start with the Crawlers and then chain up to or just move up to the Coeurl's closer to level 40. Endless chains. Crawlers do not aggro, not sure if they link as we never had one link, but never had a bad pull to see... Ocassionaly a Gob will wander through the camp, but they are easily killed by even half HP party

Camp: Buburimu Zone

PT Lv42-44 - Enemy: Goblin
PT Lv42-44 - Enemy: Cockatrice
Details: The only thing to watch out for is the occasional cockatrice pop in the tunnel itself, but this is quite infrequent and easily dealth with as the tunnel is quite long anyway.

Xarcabard

Camp: Castle Zvahl Zone
PT Lv42-44 - Enemy: Demons
Details: Here's how to do it successfully: camp in Xarcabard, right inside the castle gate. Demons are totally linktacular, and you *will* get adds unless your puller is legendary. If you do get an add and one of the demons is a wizard, kill the wizard first 'cause he can really mess you up otherwise. If you get two adds, you might need to zone, but you might not. ^_~ The biggest problem you'll run into is AF-wearing people training things to the zone because they didn't expect to find people EXPing there. ^^ Erase is really helpful against demons, but we were successful without it. And keeping everyone hasted seems to protect against the icky Slow effect. Fusion and Distortion chains both work well. We hit chain 5 several times there and made crazy EXP and piles of dark crystals. *_*

PT Lv43-45 - Enemy: Goblin Reaper
PT Lv44-47 - Enemy: Goblin Hunter/Bouncer
Details: I tried the Yhoator Jungle spot from 44-47 and it was amazing EXP, very safe at the Ifrit's Cauldron zone - and a pretty setting. Make sure to have barfira and stun ready because those gobs have pretty dangerous bombs.

Newton Movapolas

Camp: See Details
PT Lv58-60 - Enemy: Moblins
Details: As referenced by the maps on http://ffxi-atlas.com/, take path #1 (J-8) from Oldton Movalpolis to Newton Movalpolis. It's easy to reach either from the northern North Gustaberg entrance or Gusgen Mines entrance (which would be simpler to reach, being just off of the Dem crag).

You'll need invisible. From the first gate platform you reach (E-7/F-7 border) head north. We didn't need to open the gate, but I'm not sure if the gate may rotate and require adjusting. From the landing just north of the gate head left to a cave tunnel. Camp there and pull from the platforms or from the back of the tunnel.

There are two Dire Bats in the tunnel. They do not agro, but will link with the bat familiars of Goblin Foremen. You can use them to fill out chains as needed. The goblins here do not use bomb toss, though they do have a few other tricks.

Ro'Maeve

Camp: Zi-tah Zone
PT Lv54-58 - Enemy: Killing Weapon

Details: Right by the zone in from Zi-tah there's more than enough weapons to make a good chain for even 2 parties, and most people not going for Sky access don't even know about it.

Upper Delkfutt's Tower

Camp: 11th Floor
PT Lv54-57 - Enemy: Incubus Bats
PT Lv58-60 - Enemy: Jotunn
Details: Off the last porter and take a right, through the door and past Demonic Doll, up the stairs and camp at the top of the stairs. There are 2 Incubus bats in a hallway that were VT to me @58 but make decent enough chain starters. past the hallway are giants war and mnk types that give out very nice exp for up to 59. They have tons of hit points and the mnk's double attack are a little draining but nothing epic. We did good to kill the 2 bats and 2-3 more giants for chain 4-5 before having to rest. By the time we rested full the bats had respawned and were patiently waiting for our next chain. Only problem with this camp is that without escape there's no clean way out and even with escape unless everyone in your party has their key leftover from 3-3 it's slong trip back. And yes, you can use your key to go back UP the elevator. The upside is, because of this, you will never, ever, have to compete with another party in this camp.

Camp: 12th Floor
PT Lv60-62 - Enemy: Dire Bats
PT Lv60-62 - Enemy: Jotunn
Details: Cross the 11th floor from the previous camp. Camp on the stairs to the 12th floor. 2 Dire Bats spawn at the top of the stairs.

Quicksand Caves

Camp: West Altepa Entrance
PT Lv57-59 - Enemy: Anticans
Details: Head through The G-5 Entrance off of Western Altepa Desert. The Spider by the zone will agro but he's easily slept and if you know the respawn timer he's not a bother (it's 16 minutes btw). You'll be taking him and anticans right by the zone. blm,rng,war,pld types so be ready with silence and make sure mage/nin types have echo drops for combatting AoE Silence.

Valley of Sorrows

Camp: Terrigan Tunnel (from Terrigan J8)
PT Lv59-61 - Enemy: Velociraptor
PT Lv59-61 - Enemy: Peryton
Details: Can Hold Two PTs

Camp: Terrigan (from Terrigan I-9/10)
PT Lv59-61 - Enemy: Velociraptor

Monastic Cavern

Camp: Banishing Gate
PT Lv60-63 - Enemy: Orcs
Details: Orcs Campjust after the banishing gate (same place as level 60 cap item)

Labyrinth of Onzozo

Camp: Tunnel (F-6)
PT Lv61-63 - Enemy: Toramas
Details: Two PTs can reasonably chain here.

Attohwa Chasm

Camp: (F-7)and(F-6) Caves.
PT Lv60-62 - Enemy: Tracker Antlions
Details: Antlions are non-aggro, but do link. I'm not too good with the area, as I was dragged there the other night, but it's the first big open area after you zone in from Shakrami. You run past some scorpions (which are aggro to sound, but are EP), and then you'll see antlions. We camped in the entrance of the tunnel to Bone Yard gully. Be warned, the antlions have AOE blind, a cone poison attack similiar to the poison like flies and a bind move, they also have quite a bit of life, and also link by sound. XP was decent, and it is a very good spot if onzozo is packed or if you would rather xp on someting with considerable less evasion than the Toramas. (Antilions are Weak to Wind)

First off, Atthowa Chasm is seperated into 2 parts. The east part has much lower lvl mobs, and the west part has much higher mobs. You will be camping on the West, but must go through the east to get to it.

How to get to the camp:
Zone into maze of Shakrami from the Tharongi Canyon entrance. Bear left, up to the second lvl, and zone into Atthowa Chasm. Go strait, past the bridge over the very deep gorge (take some pics here if you want its rather nice looking). Go North to the first tunnel, and then east again into the east side of Atthowa Chasm. Then turn left, hugging the left wall till your first tunnel. Go west again, hugging the left wall, and past the gorge again. Follow the path past the gorge yet again (you will wind west and south then back north to get to this point). Continue following the path, and cross the gorge one last time, and eventually enter the Western half of Atthowa Chasm. Go north (or right), and hug the right wall, to the tunnel that leads to Boneyard Gulley. Camp is right inside that tunnel. The Tracker Antilions do not agro (though other kinds may as someone in our party agroed another kind when we were lost in the south western part which you should avoid).

Total travel time if you dont get lost from teleport mea, is approx 15 minutes. There is virtually nothing that will agro you the entire way to camp, if you follow these directions. Everything is Too weak, and that makes this a very easy camp to get to.

Just spent a while XPing in Attohwa Chasm as a 61 BRD in a 61-62 party and have a few notes.

#1: We camped in a different area to that listed in the directions above, which is a lot quicker to reach. Zone in from MoS, but don't cross the first bridge you come to. Instead, take the left cave entrance on the same side as you entered from, follow the tunnel around and after a short run you'll zone into a wide area with Tulwar Scorpions. These conned DC to me at 61 and aggro to sound, so sneak up. We headed SW from this point until we began to see Antlions, and then camped in a rocky area with a pair of Sand Lizards wandering around it.

#2: Antlions have fairly low evasion but plenty of HP. We never managed a chain #5, and chain #4 was a push. Our set up was NIN, DRG, SAM, BLM, BRD and WHM. As BRD I was using double minuet on the DRG and SAM as they were having few accuracy problems.

XP for the Antlions in a 61-62 party was around 150-170xp each.

#3: Our NIN noticed that the Antlions AOE blind attack dropped all her shadows. This wasn't a huge problem as she's a **** of a player, but for others coming to the area it's something to bear in mind.

#4: Once, as our puller was coming back with a Tracker Antlion, a Trench Antlion suddenly erupted from the ground just in front of the camp (the same stretch he had run over 30+ times previously) and hit him for 300+ damage. Fortunately we were able to keep it slept with no resists while we dealt with the regular antlion, before turning our attention to the unwelcome visitor. We killed it without any trouble, it was of comparable toughness to the Tracker Antlions.

Uleguerand Range

Camp: The down ramp at J-10
PT Lv60-63 - Enemy: Nival Raptor
Details: Getting to the ramp requires traversing the first field (invis to get past tigers and bombs, careful of magic agro) to the first cave (a bat or two is in here, can just kill it or sneak past), then use sneak to get to the down ramp (shouldn't have to get close enough to the bomb to worry about invis). Very quick and simple. At the top of the ramp are about 10 Nival Raptors. They have a 5 minute respawn time. At 62-63 we could get chain 5 without breaking a sweat for 4k+/hour, and even got chain 6 a few times. Space for one party (possibly two if they're both lower level and going slow, and there's noone at the bottom of the ramp killing buffalo).

Camp: The down ramp at J-10
PT Lv63-65 - Enemy: Giant Buffalo
Details: Same camp, but at the bottom of the ramp. There are a fair number of giant buffalo easily pullable from the field below the ramp. Occasionally hunted by farmers. Should be good up to 65 or so, should you wish to XP there. Space for one party.

Bibiki Bay
-General Bibiki Bay Notes: Avoid the Blaggers. Thiefs have wicked evasion.

Camp: Southern F-8
PT Lv62-64 - Enemy: Goblin
Details: Same method as above.

Camp: Southern G-11 (Ocean Cliffs)
PT Lv65-68 - Enemy: Goblin
Details: The Martialists, Alastors, Physicians and the occasional Angler. Careful, the Ranglers are harder than most. End with chain 5 on the poor bunny.

Camp: Middle F-10 (Cave)
PT Lv65-68 - Enemy: Goblin
Details: The Martialists, Alastors, Physicians and the occasional Angler. Careful, the Ranglers are harder than most. End with chain 5 on the poor bunny.

Camp: Middle F-9 (Dhalmel Camps) X2
PT Lv65-68 - Enemy: Goblin
PT Lv67-70 - Enemy: Dhalmels
Details: The Martialists, Alastors, Physicians and the occasional Angler. Careful, the Ranglers are harder than most. End with chain 5 on the poor bunny.

Camp: Middle F-9 (Dhalmel Camps) X2
PT Lv65-68 - Enemy: Goblin
PT Lv67-70 - Enemy: Dhalmels
Details: The Martialists, Alastors, Physicians and the occasional Angler. Careful, the Ranglers are harder than most. End with chain 5 on the poor bunny.

Camp: Cave on the Beach G-11
PT Lv69-71 - Enemy: Goblin Angler
Details:

Ru'Aun Gardens

Camp: Unknown Specific Camp
PT Lv64-65 - Enemy: Flamingos
Details: Sky Access is required to get here.

The Boyahda Tree

General Boyahda Notes: Do NOT attack Korrigans. Rangers can scavenge Darksteel boltheads here.

Camp: Cloister Waterfall
PT Lv63-65 - Enemy: Korrigan
PT Lv64-66 - Enemy: Skimmer

PT Lv64-66 - Enemy: Steelshell
Details: Waterfall outside of the cloister of storms. Level on Steelshells and possibly skimmers. Skimmers link like crazy and I have seen 1 too many parties wiped out/forced to escape.
Korrigan Details: Linkable! We decided to pull one of the Korrigan (the black mandragora) just for the **** of it. We loved them. Much *much* softer than the steelshells, if not a bit more annoying. They have the classic AoE sleep, and I saw one special that hit our DRK for 340ish damage, but other than that, they seemed great. We'll be intermixing them with processionaire on Tuesday.

Camp: Waterfall Tunnels
PT Lv63-65 - Enemy: Korrigan
PT Lv63-67 - Enemy: Processionaire
PT Lv67-69 - Enemy: Elder Goobbue
Details: There is a series of tunnels just to the east of the waterfall to level on Processionaries. Take the first right and the slope is a good camp with one pop every 15-20 min.

Camp: Dragon Aery Zone
PT Lv67-69 - Enemy: Darter
PT Lv68-70 - Enemy: Bark Tarantula
Details: Occasional Spider Pops.

Camp: The Lake
PT Lv67-69 - Enemy: Darter
Details: Get to the area with the waterfall and drop down the water slopes on the Right. Turn left at the bottom then take the right most tunnel to come to a small island like area surrounded by water. Ancient Gobbue spawns here. Don't mess with him. This camp is my favorite. Processionaries are also good here.

Den of Rancor

Camp: Cloister of Tides
PT Lv65-67 - Enemy: Pugils
Details: We went down deep into the underworld of the Den of Rancor under the Temple of Unpronouncable to fight Stygian Pugils. We set up camp right at the zone of the Cloister of Tides and started chaining 5 on these pugils. The only thing in the area besides the Pugils were a couple of big fat blobby Doom Toads. Well, naturally I (the one with the deathwish) wanted to fight one, just for the novelty of it. We quickly discovered how good an idea it was when we beat it without too much trouble and got 321 EXP for it! We developed a pattern where we'd fight the Stygian Pugils for about 200 EXP each, and get chain 4 on a Doom Toad (they took a little too long to use them as chain 5's), which led to some spectacular results for EXP. The thing about getting there is that it takes a lot of invis'ing through the Temple above, and going past the Paintbrush room, and once you get into the Den of Rancor, you need sneak as well. If you have someone who knows exactly how to get to the Cloister of Tides, then you're good.

Camp: Yhoator Jungle Zone
PT Lv67-69 - Enemy: Tormentor
Details - Tormentors are Lizzies and are very easy to hit, just lots of HP. There are about 9 spawns so it gets really tight if two PTs camp them, the alternative is:

Camp: Temple Zone
PT Lv67-69 - Enemy: Puck
Details - Pucks are little black mandies. Its just like fighting in the 20s all over again. As you enter the zone from Yhoator Jungle, take the first right, then continue until you can make a sharp left just before the pucks. The slope down is the camp. Don't fall.

Gustav Tunnel

Camp: (G-7)(H-7)
PT Lv67-70 - Enemy: Skeleton
Details:The popular camp area with all the gobs and crabs, if you go to the northern side, the skeletons are harder and good from 65-68. A MNK and a Light Skillchain are great to have here.

Shrine of Ru'Avitau

Camp: Unknown Specific Camp
PT Lv67-70 - Enemy: Decorative Weapons
Details: I can't really list a camp, as there's at least 6 throughout the shrine. The *best* camp is the mobile one, where you alternate between two gates -- each gate has 7 weapons -- and have your mages stand behind the door so when it closes they can reopen it.

Camp: Unknown Specific Camp
PT Lv69-72 - Enemy: Aura Weapons
Details: "Eww! RDM mobs!?" Yeah, because they have pitiful defense, attack, HP, and their AoE hits for half as much as the Decorative Weapons even though Aura Weapons are 2 levels higher. Suck it up, silence them, and have fun with flowing EXP. There are at least 4 camps I've spotted running through the shrine various times, if not more.

Cape Terrigan

Camp: Outside Cloister of Gales
PT Lv68-72 - Enemy: Manticores
Details: Paladins are crippled by Max MP down. Ninja tanks recommended.

Camp: Eastern Tunnel
PT Lv68-72 - Enemy: Manticores
Details: DC Gobs are in the tunnel... may interrupt chains.

Camp: (F-9)
PT Lv66-67 - Enemy: Demonic Pugil
PT Lv67-70 - Enemy: Skeleton
Details: Semi-Dangerous camp... occasional skele HP aggro, but a careful PT will be ok. Pugs yield ~150 at this level. Skele's ~180.



70's

Kuftal Tunnel

Camp: I-7 Tunnel
PT Lv70-72 - Enemy: Ovinnik
PT Lv73-74 - Enemy: Landons
Details: They are past the rock (G-9 2nd Map) that goes up and down. Both aggro to Sight. Tigers do a AOE Paralyze attack that is VERY annoying

Camp: I-9 Tunnel
PT Lv70-72 - Enemy: Ovinnik
PT Lv73-74 - Enemy: Landons
Details: Same as above Camp.

King Ranperre's Tomb

Camp: Unknown Location
PT Lv70-75 - Enemy: Skeletons
Details: Unknown specifics.

Ro'Maeve
General Notes: I'd like to point out some changes regarding Ro'Maeve. First off, you can start on weapons as early as 70-71. It helps to have a bard though as hitting can be a problem. Also, as with all weapons, watch out for the hellish AOE stun. It's important that everyone in your party have at least two silent oils. Once you get past the zone line going in, it's not really safe to cast until you get to your camp. The zone is full of weapons, pots, and dolls, all of which aggro on magic.

Camp: C-7 West Moon Gate
PT Lv70-75 - Enemy: Infernal Weapon
PT Lv70-75 - Enemy: Apocalyptic Weapon
PT Lv70-75 - Enemy: Darksteel Golem
Details: You will have to get past the Moon Gate to get into here. Just inside the gate. The benefit here is you can pull from either side. It's critical that you have a rdm or brd who is on top of things, however, as you *will* get adds/links. or take a left or a right after passing the moongate, it doesn't matter. Stay on the upper level and find a room in the wall that doesn't have a pot spawn. I believe on both east and west sides, if you take a right, then hug the wall to your left, the first or second room is safe to camp in.

Camp: M-7 East Moon Gate
PT Lv70-75 - Enemy: Infernal Weapon
PT Lv70-75 - Enemy: Apocalyptic Weapon
PT Lv70-75 - Enemy: Darksteel Golem
Details: Same as above.

Shrine of Ru'Avitau

Camp: Unknown Location
PT Lv72-75 - Enemy: Aura Statues
Details: Sky access is required. Zilart Mission 13. Golems AOE bind and stun.

Lufaise Meadows

Camp: J-8
PT Lv72-75 - Enemy: Abraxas
Details:I camped here last night, so I thought I would add a few notes on these things.

First of all, this is a GREAT XP spot for 75 PTs, since you can find IT and VT mobs in great supply and hardly any competition.

The two mobs you would aim for are the Abraxas (Greater Bird) and the Tavzanian Rams (Ram).

The Abaraxas are mostly VT to 75, with a few ITs here and there. They are almost exactly like the Greater Birds in Valley of Sorrows; they hit quite hard and drop light crystals. There are lots of them around and they seemed to repop quickly.

The Tavzanian Rams are another thing altogether. They are all IT to 75s, and they hit like a truck. They have very strong Max HP Down and Line-Of-Sight AOE Petrify attacks. They make great chain enders, but I would only suggest fighting them with a Ninja tank and a WHM for Stona. If you have neither, I would suggest sticking to the Abraxas only.

2 obvious campsites that I saw: the first at J-7 near Blueblade Fell (watch for Fomors behind you), and the other at the SW corner of K-7 at the entrance of the tunnel. Lots of mobs, I imagine this place could support 2-3 parties quite well.

At 54 (id reccomend 55 or 56 though, we were going a tad slow >.<) you can hunt Robbers in Boyhada tree. Not too hard to get to the camp site, since nothing along the correct path will aggro. You can run in from the front entrance and try and find your way, or come around the back entrance (follow the goobbue farmers, they run that path all the time) and will lead you directly to the robber room. Id say it supports 1-2 parties, more then that and your gonna end up short on a few pulls.

Can hunt the robbers for the high exp, but expect long fights. Knight Crawlers make good prey and drop quite a bit faster then the crabs, but there IS an exp difference after the patch. Crab fights: 180-240 exp, crawler fights 180 always.

Multiple camps, high ledges, cave entrances, just be careful not to fight with your back to one of the crawler caves or fall down the ledge that leads to the back of the zone (id assume to Dragons Aery too, there are Ancient Goobbues within sight)

Oh, and watch out for Aquarious (sp), he hurts.

Regarding Buburimu in the 10-14 range, I've always used the Outpost (inside the fence in the Outpost backyard) near the Tahrongi border. It's not uncommon to find another party here, but then, that applies to most places. You can fight Zu here as well and keep going up beyond the 10-14 range, or move on to the Mhaura entrance to fight Dhalmels, Goblins, and Zu. As we all know, Dhalmels are soft and squishy and their XP tastes good. There's sometimes competition from Dhalmel farmers, though. There's also usually some BST scattered around Buburimu, but they rarely go through mobs fast enough to have any effect on the plentiful mob population here.

Getting from the Outpost to Mhaura (or those beaches for the crabs) requires navigating past goblins, which usually isn't too big of a deal, but, unless everyone is carrying prism powders, you'll want to move as a group so you can handle goblin aggro if it occurs. Should be able to take them without trouble, since you're going to Mhaura for the purpose of fighting the tougher ones anyway.

Thanks alot for the info. Added Lithiani, Rylock, and Kagami information. Thanks very much!

I also did an expedition to Boyahda to see what its like. First off, very pretty zone. So pretty in fact that I didn't see the Robber Crab aggro. >< Maybe I should start to bring my whm with me.

Great post! Very useful for players wandering into a new XP area. It also gives some alternate leveling locations within the zone. Here's another for Yuhtunga: the top of the cliff at H-10 is great for levels 27/28-31/32 fighting Goblin Furriers. There is never anyone there, and I got three levels in that spot in one evening of leveling. Just be careful not to pull the (much tougher but no aggro) Crawlers and watch for Water Elementals.

I only have one complaint. You keep telling people to camp DIRECTLY ON THE ZONE LINE. This just means people are going to continue to complain whenever anything is zoned to that exit. If people think the ONLY safe place is right next to the zone line, they will never try any other areas. Good info though.

I think that we went from 44-48 on those gobs. Start with the Hunters, then proceed to Bouncers (or Reapers). Fantastic camp a Litte West of Zone line where nothing spawns. This place is amazing!

Thanks for the input! I modified the post accordingly.

Thank you for the consctructive input Xanthius. Actually, some places must be camped on the zone line. Ranpierre's Tomb comes to mind. As for the rest of the zone references, I'll try to correct the ones I know, but I'd appreciate some input on where the camps actually are. I'd love to post the good camps off the zone. For instance, all the camps in Garliage ARE on the zone line, and I listed the only camp I knew of, off of the zone line.

On a different tact, in my 50s now, if I didn't have a mage with escape (tele just takes too long), I would prefer camping on or near the zone line... as long as the interruptions weren't too often. Safety is a paramount concern for me.

I'd also love to add some levels post 55 here, I'm not sure if I'll have the same difficulty when its time to move to Terrigan, or where the camps are.

Like I said before, I love the mystery tour database, but it only describes a zone and its level, it doesn't help me really plan an outing.

Thanks for the great inputs again!

Rate up! And one small thing to add:

Quote:
Most of these questions sometimes donít apply to pick-up PTs because usually, someone has been there already. But for meĀEthese are very important, I also donít like wasting my friends time. Although, every once in a while Iíll end up doing just that. For instance, I donít know how to xp off of demons in Castle Zvahl from 42-44, but we triedĀEand it was a disaster (although very fun).


Here's how to do it successfully: camp in Xarcabard, right inside the castle gate. Demons are totally linktacular, and you *will* get adds unless your puller is legendary. If you do get an add and one of the demons is a wizard, kill the wizard first 'cause he can really mess you up otherwise. If you get two adds, you might need to zone, but you might not. ^_~ The biggest problem you'll run into is AF-wearing people training things to the zone because they didn't expect to find people EXPing there. ^^ Erase is really helpful against demons, but we were successful without it. And keeping everyone hasted seems to protect against the icky Slow effect. Fusion and Distortion chains both work well. We hit chain 5 several times there and made crazy EXP and piles of dark crystals. *_*

Ohhhhhh. That's awesome! Thanks Lin, when we camped there, we ended up trying that strat, but I think we failed horribly because we didn't have a good puller at the time. I'm actually still pulling with Dragoon^^. And our Red Mage tried pulling too, but the links were crazy. I also don't think we camped close enough to the zone. But really... thanks, I've been wondering about that for about 10 levels now ><.

Regarding the Weapons in Rolanberry: I partied around (K-7) and it seemed to be pretty safe. Our puller never had to go too far for a mob, and aggro wasn't a problem. However, the party didn't last long because we were too high of a level (~34) to be getting "enough" XP for some party members. Probably would've been better around 30-32.

Still, if it's not taken, nothing beats the canyon in Saruomugue. Safe, open, and a really short pull. Only problem is I don't see how more than 1 group can use it effectively, and I see it used about half the time. It's at (G-7) and you're pulling the same weapons as Rolanberry.

Thanks MrMSTy, I needed that campsite for Sauromugue. As to the level, I agree, I think 34 is too high for that exp. We leveled perfectly at 32 and 33. Thanks alot!
