Been pulling these for 7 hours straight. Only tier 2 spells (Fire II Blizzard II etc.) With the exeption of Bio III and it only casts Poison I the first tier form. Its DRK gobby, and of course you can steal gold beastcoins off them. They are located at the higher lvl end of Bibiki bay near the cliff that leads to the beach or the angler camp.

exp off these guys just fine with a lvl 63 party. pulled 300 exp on several of them. Thats without even a exp chain, just 300 straight. 375exp several times with chain 2. The fight can drag on a lil long at times but we never had a death out of one with our lvl 62-63 party. We chained for up to 300 and higher for several hours here.

this is the smithy version of gobs. there are definatly lvl diffrences in these hobgobs as you go deeper in BB. exp of the first few lvl 64-66. went deeper in for 65-67. light skillchains make these dudes hurt bad. REAL BAD. our blm got pissed off cause she could never MB , they just all died to fast. red lotus blade + flat blade=fusion + spinning slash=light. spinning slash was doing 1000 and light was doing 1200 .

Actually i think this is a Dark knight gob. Smithy are war type gobs. The "smithy" or war type hob gob is the martialartist(sp). This one casts dark magic like abs spells, bio 3, poison, etc.

The Alastors are 160-203 exp ITs to L67.

A party of 62s would be ANNIHILATED by one. They have incredible evasion, and if it's one of the 203 exp ones, INSANE attack (200 dmg to me as a monk).

Not true I was in a pt tonight that consisted of two 62's (one of them was me) two 63's and two 64's. These guys take a little longer to kill than others but I got 271 straight exp off of these guys with no chain and the level 64's were getting 280

A party of 62-64 will get at least 170 exp per mob killing Hobgoblins in bibiki bay.

With Tristelunes's comment about the upper exp level at 67, the level range to exp off these mobs in Bibiki Bay is about 62-66

the party I am with right now is 3 64s, 2 63s, and 1 62, We are getting chain 4s.

Barfira is a must, we've been hit with bombs for 617 dmg without Barfira up.

We've been xping on these gobs as well as venerers, fascinators and a few others all night long with a 66/68 PT. The PT lvl cap for good xp is definitly 67, nonetheless you still can get good chains at 68 but don't expect awesome XP anymore. according to this I would say the mobs lvls are around 71-72, as well as tropical rarabs.

Side notes : Tropical rarabs throwing a carrot in the air to heal themselves is one of the funniest thing I've been given to see in FFXI don't miss it if you happen to xp here XD. The downside is they have nasty aoe (killed our rng and our pld once)

- Avoid goblin blaggers as much as you can they have crazy evasion and it'll be a miss miss miss miss show, the fight will last forever and obviously you're gonna /em farewell to the xp chain.

I hope this helps take care and happy xp ^^

In response to your question: about 50 levels. The hobgoblins in this area register anywhere from DC-T to a lvl 75. Steer clear of the southern areas in bibiki bay unless you have a high level party/ alliance.
