Hello fellow summoners. Long story short I haven’t touched smn lately but now that I got an HNM I have some good uses for it so its time to upgrade my gear.
Thus one of the best pieces being our af+1 that lowers perpetual cost is what I want to go for first.
Now the problem is I don’t have a lot of time to burn joining a shell so I want to do it solo.
The good thing is I got blm drg drk and smn and a ton of solo experience. I’m able to solo fairly well in a few apoly zones but temenos the only one I have experience in is temenos east.

So the question I’m asking is has anyone devised a way to solo a smn temenos piece.

East is rumored to have a chance of dropping smn on the 2nd floor which I could defiantly solo the item out of but no ones confirmed it and so idk if its worth wasting the time.

And I think its west that has a chance of dropping on the first floor but the item chest isn’t always on the first floor or something like that and I would have to fight tigers…

Anyone know if the chance of getting and item chest is worth it to attempt fighting the tigers, and does anyone know if the tigers are easy enough to solo.

Or does anyone else know a different strategy? Ty.

If your wondering what my blm gear is like … It’s good enough to solo golems in sky, elements in temenos east, and most of apoly kings.

I'll just say Good Luck.

It takes me 6 months an upgrade doing it in a shell that actually does 1-2 zones per run twice a week and clear all floors. With the limited amount it sounds like you will be clearing I really hope you are lucky.

I'm not aware of a soloable Temenos zone. I've done most of the outer Temenos zones with 3 or 4 people, but never with less than 3.

I think your best bet is Temenos East, the elemental one. Pick time chests on floors that don't drop the SMN item, and pray you don't get an avatar on ones that do.

*EDIT: On second glance... I'm not really sure Temenos East even drops SMN. You might be out of luck on that.

Some info I've discovered so far is as follows.

Temenos west tigers aren't that bad for solo blm. I went in with blm blm rdm thf and 2 blms were able to kill a tiger without resting the rdm was just casting sleep to make it easier for us. sleep landed from blm casting easily though.

The only problem is that even with thf in the party the treasure chest were quite rare. I also was told before going that the first chest is always a time chest and sure enough it was a time chest, I also noted that we skipped the last 3 tigers because they were so close to each other making it impossible to pull without aggroing all three ( atleast thats what the thf said I was recovering mp). So though I'm not sure Id be willing to wager that there is 1 of each type of chest on each floor that can drop but won't neccessarily drop from specific mobs on each floor.

If this is true then either we pulled the item chest mob and it simply didn't drop the item chest, or the item chest mob is in one of hte last three there by making it near impossible to raech as solo blm.

I'd also note that if this is false and the first few mobs can in fact drop the item chest then a solo blm has about the same chance of earning an item chest as they would in temenos east.

BLM can solo the tigers easily enough.
Unless the last three tigers are the only ones that drop the item chest, an item chest is soloable by blm.
