Just as a FYI, the three areas around the cities in the past (Saru [S], Gusta [S], Ronf [S]) have mobs that make them targets for 15-20 as well.

One other FYI... I've been leveling BST and DNC at roughly the same time (not literally, obviously, I've just been leap-frogging them) primarily so I can have /DNC as my sub for BST (I never liked BST/WHM, as a Galka I had to put so much more effort into that stupid /WHM sub than I wanted).

Anyway, I mention this because I've been using these anthologies to level my DNC with. I go out with DNC/BST, using my same CHR gear and BST macros, and can pretty much target the same mobs/pets that I could as a BST/DNC at the same level. As long as I keep my BST higher than my DNC, I only notice the slightest difference in charm success between DNC/BST and BST/DNC.

Anyway anyway, someone may want to pop into the DNC forums and let them know of these anthologies, because DNC/BST (as long as your BST is high enough) is, IMHO, a faster way to solo level DNC than any other sub (and believe me, I've tried them all :-)

Just a FYI,

Rolanberry (S) and Batallia Downs (S) should probably be added to the 20-30 range as well. Both have really nice 28-30(ish) camps that I've commented on (I took my BST to them).

Why no Gustav Tunnel under 70-75?

edit: Thank you for adding ^_^

I duo'd in Mamook @71, wasn't very good. You can use lizard pets vs. Mamool or colibri/pugils vs. Ziz. The problem was that a) you had to roam around to find the 4 Mamool spawns so you couldn't rely on EM/DC lizards being available b) the Mamool THF takes about 5 mins as a duo to kill and c) Ziz are too high level for the pets to kill them off reliably without a swap, and aren't particularly squishy (petrify TP move doesn't help damage output either).

A trio might work out nicely vs. Ziz. Lizard pets are 70-72 and colibri/pugils are 70-71. Mamool are 73-76 I think, and Ziz are 76-78.

What is the point of this thread now? None of the links in the original post work.

The links went to my premium account journal. Since my playtime has been reduced to almost nil, I didn't renew my zam account. There was a thread asking if anyone wanted to take it over but there wasn't anyone super enthusiastic to do so.

The BST Anthologies

I don't like giving inaccurate information so please tell me when and where I do so that I may learn myself.

For whatever it's worth, I was enthusiastic. I just didn't think anyone *else* would be thrilled about having a relative no-name like myself taking over. Like I said in the thread, I wasn't expecting such a lack of volunteers...

I'd still be interested in doing it, if the posts can still be recovered. (I'm just not all that interested in upgrading to a premium account unless it can be done, since there's really nothing else I would want one for.) I've even been keeping track of some suggestions on improving the way the index is arranged.

Sorry to chime in on this. It's been a long while since I have posted anything here but I wanted to chime in.

This had happened once before to the Bst Anthologies. The original person who let us use their Journal Pages to input the Anthologies was Evanesance (I bet I misspelled that) When she left the game and stopped her premium account Unhollyllama took it up. So it has been done before.

If there isn't a whole lot of people enthusiastic to take this up sleepygirl I'd say go ahead and roll with it. I believe all you need is a premium and a moderators OK. If you weary about getting a Premium, contact the Moderators first and let them know you want to take this up.... they've done this before and I am sure they can do it again.

There's such a wealth of information and history in the anthologies. It would be a shame to see it lost so easily and without a fight.

I was assuming it would also take Unholyllama's okay. `.`

I agree wholeheartedly. Please find some way to bring this wealth of knowledge back to us all. As a BST25 I want to learn as much as I possibly can about the job.

Man, I am curious as to what was in these anthologies. It seems like a shame for it to be lost.
Also if all the links are dead, does it really make sense to have this stickied?

You can still see some of the information using the Internet Archive (http://waybackmachine.org/). Last I checked, they were at mid-2008 for these, which is quite a lot. Subpages for zones that had them are missing though...

I still wish we could get a read-only copy or something put back up, but it seems there's not a whole lot else that can be done without Unholyllama approving it... And it's been months since he's been logged in here. -.-

I know I'm making a huge necrobump but is there anyway of getting these back? I know soloing on Bst isn't hugely viable because of book burns, but it may retain some use for monstrosity now. And if any new Bst wanna go the old school route for kicks and heck would help with keeping skills up to par too.

Unfortunately their user journal doesn't exist any longer exists, so there's no way of pulling out those links.

I'm in the process of gathering some information for a Monstrosity page, and one of the areas I'll cover will be related to recommended monster exping areas.
