Solo Staff Skill UpFollow

I was wondering if any of you have skilled up staff skill solo with SMN @ 75? If so what sub did you use, and where did you do it?

I have searched around the forums and didn't see anything relevant to my specific question.

I have tried SMN/RDM and working on crabs in Bohyada by the cloister of storms, but it is not that easy, cause either my avatar doesn't last long enough for a complete fight, and when I recast etc, it can be rough waiting for my avatar to regain hate.

I can use my NPC (which is lvl 70), but wanted to see if it can be done truly solo. My skill is sitting in the 220s right now, and I prefer the flexibility of starting and stopping when I want to (as opposed to getting a pt together for this)

I used worms (which were super easy) but they cap out at lvl 71.

Have you tried using Garuda and opening with a Predator Claws and using Whispering Wind to have her heal herself? I think I used /WHM when I did it --- I probably would still use /WHM over /SCH for Stoneskin and Blink (and RR).

If you slap on some damage reduction gear, you can probably take a few hits here and there also. Solo isn't gonna be fast at all because the mobs hit so hard.

I actually used ramuh and started with thunderspark when i was soloing staff in the tree, the paralyse is very strong and means you can often get by with just one resummon of ramuh and another thunderspark to give him hate.
also saves MP over a lvl 70 BP and you get to hit the mob for longer :D

oh and while wielding thunder staff for a LITTLE etc acc..

One of the best ways to skill up anything, by the way, is to do the Assault where you do practically nothing but whack away at walls.

you can skill solo outside of whitegate on spiders, once you reach 190 skill you can skill/xp in caederve mire on Jnun: Those are tough, Garuda should be able to survive them at 75.
Pop Garuda, pull with Dia II to the hill out of imp area, PC and start swinging your staff.
If she's low on health before the second PC use aerial armor, also usefull to pop a fresh avatar).

you'll get some xp aswell using Jnun, not like doing imps, but those are bastards when you're hit with amnesia/silence
