G7 without AbysseaFollow

As I understand if to raise the cap beyond 80 I need Kindred Crests, which most people seem to get in Abyssea. If I don't have Sea, Sky or Abyssea where can I find mobs that drop them that I can solo or at most duo with a friend?

Without the old FFXIAtlas site I no longer know where to look for info where to find level 70+ mobs? I know of the birds they added to Tavnazia (Seeboard Vultures or something I think), but they're well over 75 I think, and I don't know where I'd find lower 70 mobs outside of the Flamingos in Sky this character doesn't have access to.

Anyone with suggestions?

Trolls in Mt Zhayolm drop them too.

Since you don't have Sky, Sea, or Abyssea I would suggest areas like Valley of Sorrows, Uleguerand Range, Boyahda Tree, and Aht Urhgan xp areas. All of those zones will have things you can solo and will drop the Kindred Crests but the rate will be low since they share a drop spot with beastmen and kindred seals.

I farmed mine off of mobs in La Vaule (S). Orcs, Ladybugs, Imps. Was slow, even with a couple characters to help, but had a BST and SMN to help, which made it much easier.

This, sky and sea access are more or less Soloable for most jobs at this point, if not at least duoable-trioable for some DDs that lack soloability. Also get off your **** and buy abyssea. At this point, not having abyssea is like not having ToAU was a year after ToAU came out.

Tormentors in Den of Rancor. They are right inside the zone when you use the entrance near the Elshimo Uplands outpost. Ideally you'd want something a little lower in level to farm more quickly but the zone line is handy when you're solo.

Beastman pets also drop them. Try Grauberg or Vunkerl. Just run around looking for beastmen (Gigas) with pets or check out the BLM soloing guide.

This is the correct answer.

Thanks to those who offered positive suggestions based on my needs, however I was hoping someone would be able to point me at a mob list because all those areas as far as I know have mobs which aren't 70+ so I could end up wasting a lot of time killing mobs which won't drop them.

From previous characters I know the birds in Sky are probably the best bet, but they're not available to me at present.

To those who said "get Sea, Sky and Abyssea" ... I won't explain why those aren't options because I see no point giving you cheap shots at me, the fact you needed to answer me like the makes it obvious the sort of retort I'd get if I did so.

But why make a lvl 90 character with no access to endgame and crap for gear? And why do you need to be spoonfed information that anyone remotely familiar with the game can find in 5 minutes?

The only thing a character like that is good for is RMT... (farming gil drops).

Oh, and the answer is Castle Oztroja.

Dragon's Aery has mobs over level 75, this may be a good bet. You can pull stuff to the zoneline, too.

I looked at ZAM's info but that isn't searchable by level like FFXIAtlas used to be, which is what I was really after.

Thanks for the suggestions, a couple were certainly areas I hadn't thought of looking for appropriate mobs.

As a last comment, I didn't realise http://www.campsitarus.blogspot.com/ was still around which is one of those resources I used years ago, for some reason I though that it was part of FFXIAtlas, otherwise I'd have gone there before asking.

Wait, the link goes to a list of mobs 70 - 75, right?

Maybe I don't understand what you just said.

I can understand why someone would not want to get Abyssea since it does cost money to buy. Perhaps this excuse could be even attached to not getting sea access. I do not understand, however, why someone would take the time to get a level 90 character but not do the missions to get at least sky access. If you have an NA copy of FF11 you have Zilart (especially since pretty much everywhere suggested for crests are Zilart areas and you did not object).

If your play time is limited use your limited play time to do a few missions at a time.

You may as well come out with it because being level 90 without any end game access is mind boggling. Someone brought up money reasons but if you have enough to pay the monthly fee you can scratch together enough for the expansions.

The statement "If you can afford X, you can afford X+Y" (where Y > 0) has to be some sort of established logical fallacy.

If money is tight, it doesn't matter if they can scrounge up enough.

Personally, I only have Visions, and I have people bugging me to buy the other two. Sure, I could probably scrounge up the money... but if money is tight, there are usually better decisions to be made. I mean, really, there's not a lot of decisions when you're low on cash that FFXI expansions win out on. "FFXI or food?" "FFXI or clothes?" "FFXI or something fun for my son?".

Plus, contrary to what people are brainwashed into thinking, there is still Non-Abyssea content in FFXI, and it can still be *gasp* enjoyable!

If money is really that tight how do you justify paying a subscription based game in the first place. On a $100+ game system, or a more expensive computer? Any reasonable person who looks at their life and says "I can't buy a $15 expansion because that is the difference between being/not being hungry/naked/cold" probably should stop playing FFXI in the first place cause ********** YOU BROKE SON[/b].

Seriously, if you're that hard up you got better things to worry about than where to get limit break stuff. All playing FFXI when you should be saving up for medicine so little Timmy doesn't die of the trembles. Be real man.
