The ice-covered Qufim Island sits directly north of the Grand Duchy of Jeuno. Traditional access to the island begins as a long tunnel that lies beneath the Sea of Shu'Meyo, beginning at Port Jeuno and opening up onto the frozen surface of Qufim, near the cliffs. Due to its being so close to Jeuno, adventurers often use this place to further hone their skills and prepare for dangerous battles by seeking out the Gigas and other monsters that make their homes here. However, the undead come out at night, often sending less experienced adventurers running to find safe haven until the light of day.
The Map of Qufim Island can be bought for 3,000 gil from Promurouve in Lower Jeuno or Rusese in Upper Jeuno.

MNK/DNC 34/17 to 40/20 in a day. solo.
nothing hits too hard on ya, so healing waltz can keep up
yah i know /DNC is over gimped but it works!
if you want my advice the best pt you can get here is
WAR/MNK (or any other sub job)
with this kind of party lvling up is soo simple with loads of exp chains and minimal chance of death i was in this pt and i lvl from 19 to 23 in about 4 hours
Where the hell do they form at?
Yes, this is just as horrid..
Yes, its hard to get 'great' parties here..
But my recommendation to anyone trying to get jobs from lvl 19-25 is to simply just be patient.
I myself have suffered the tortures of the dunes while lvling all of my jobs (except bst) and have since put 6 jobs (pld, war, mnk, rdm, blm, and smn) through Qufim.
* Note: the common beliefe that its easy to get ptys here as a mage, is utter BS.. its just as hard as any other job. For instance it took me nearly 2 hrs to get a pty with my blm.
If you have the time you can make your own party, with what ever setup you'd think best.
My recommendation is that once you get to lvl 22-24 organise with a friend or someone from your LS to help you out with your Kazham keys. That way you can leave after 25 with a decent buffer.
1) cast Paeon II and I
2) cast Requiem II
3) cast Threnodies (to raise skills)
4) repeat after Paeons wear off
Gave 140 xp each, but took a little while to kill. The regen from Paeons was good enough to go against Rasp and Stone, but if the worm used Stonega or Stone II, I just used Cure II and it went fine.

Use a ranged attack if you have one, although provoke works as well. Make sure you are outside Giant agro range, and that there are no leeches around.
Fairly easy; Whenever my ranged attack hit it grabbed 1/4 of the leech's hp, and Tachi: Enpi ate half. I didn't hit it very often though, and my high delay was a real bother. Monks or Warriors should have even less trouble beating these puffballs, or even a wellequipped thief.
The only problem is that these are fairly hard to find, but compared to worms they're fast and easy exp.
Compared to the hell that is the luck i have with valkrum... this area has always been comparativly easy for me... not cake... just easier (sp? lol)
... lvl 24 always seems to get me though... couldnt find a pt for 4 days even as a rng!
but that seemes to happen at lvl 27 as well... mabye just me?
the area itself is pretty nice... reminds me of Alaska... lots of snow, the ocean looks nice... yes, a virtual ocean looking nice... i know... im strange...
General Monsters to butcher:
lvl 20-21/22ish: Worms and Crabs... near
entrance or the lake
RUN AWAY FROM THE LAKE AT NIGHT! banshee's spawn here and will kill your pt, (sound familiar? yes, they are relatives of bogys)
lvl 22-23ish: stronger crabs mabye, some pugils if your pretty strong some weaker giants, mabye a wrights if your realy lucky ... if there are higher lvls in your group.. delkfutts tower (entrance)
lvl 24-25: in the tower, giants, goblins, whatever... realy... if you have mabye 2 ninjas you can blink tank evil weapons...
after 25 leave qufim and either A: get chest keys for kazham. or B: go to kazham seeing as you already have your chest keys from an earlier job
just for refrence: key locations
Gelshba key: higher lvl orcs in the yughott grotto (near the doom dragon fight arena)
DIfficulty: Hard [a whole week for me :(]
Giddeus Key: higher lvl yagudo in giddeus(never saw that coming, did you?
Difficulty: Easy (1st try for me, getting to where these guys are is kinda hard though)
Palbourgh Key: higher lvl quadav (w00t)in palbourgh (yes, confused you again!)
Difficulty: Medium (took 2 1/2 hrs, got my key in like 20 fights but the guy who was helping me didnt get his till the last fight i was going to be able to do before i logged)
hopped this helped any newbies starting quifim/ leaving qufim and wondering what to do...
My guide to quifim is better than all of your guides combined!!!! lol, joking^^
