No need to argue folks :)

I'll go back and perhaps clarify the 1000 Needles page a dot to include the /SMN solo strat, which I feel is good advice if you happen to not have friends to drag out for the spell, and no fellow handy. I'll probably get it in my next tidy up update. It's useful info.

Speaking of which, I have made a number of small additions to various pages. Nothing major, just some new info to Cannonball (the fact that if you don't deal spike damage they don't tend to curl up) and some other random corrections here and there.

Also currently working on getting a solid fix on the levels of the Ladybugs and Colberi in Ronfair of the past.

If anyone has a job in the 44 to 48 range can they do some looking at levels?

So far I'm seeing ladybugs at 45-47 and Colberi at only 45 and 46. Anyone see anything different? I spent a lot of time looking, and have not seen mobs outside this range, even though some refrence pages say there are other levels (and the guide reflects this possibly off info currently)

Also, has any one gotten a Decrepit Gnole to use Asuran Claws under the full moon yet? Still trying to pin down that spell use pattern.

As always thank you for the support and help keeping the Hunting grounds an as complete and correct resourse as possible! Hopefully we will be seeing an update and new spells in the next few weeks!

Believe it or not, I didn't rate you down initially. I was just pointing out that I felt there were plenty of points on getting the spell solo. And, while Wyvern can't be called from Subjob, avatars, puppets, and even fellows are listed, which are all possible with the right subjobs. Beast pets are probably the hardest one to use, since you might inadvertantly kill the cactaur before you want to. Which is the frustrating end of the deal.

I'd like to thank you for making such a useful guide for all sorts of spell hunting. I would, however, also like to make a correction to two of your pages:

On the Tail Slap and Hysteric Barrage guides, in both cases you note lamias/merrows which are near some draugars. You warn to be careful with pulls, only pulling when the draugar's far enough away from the lamia/merrow, so as to avoid links.

I don't know if perhaps they linked in the past, but I was just hunting these spells with an LS mate earlier today. And I can assure you (with experience from several hours more lamias than I wish it had taken) that they do not link, either by sight or by sound. At the very least, not in the camps we were using: the lamia COR just outside Arrapago (both of the lamia CORs there actually, though we were Carby pulling the one further from zone so we wouldn't have to kill off all the draugars in the way), and the lamia BLM and merrow BRD not far inside.

The draugar do, of course, *aggro* sound and low HP, so of course you have to watch out for that when pulling (keep HP white, don't go standing near draugars in order to be in range of pulling lamia/merrow, that sort of obvious stuff), but links are a non-concern.

Even though they do use it, you cannot learn it from them. Only Diamondhide can be learned from PLD, WAR, and DRK Trolls.

All trolls use Enervation and Diamondhide but it's only possible to learn Diamondhide from the armored trolls and Enervation from the non-armored. Sorta like how Merrow and Lamia both use Tail Slap and Hysteric barrage but Tail Slap is Merrow learn exclusive and Hysteric Barrage is Lamia learn exclusive =)

Edit: ****, Itrebul beat me to it although we both posted at the same time!

Hello Folks!

The Hunting Grouds is seeing updates on the five new spells as info comes in. Hunting links can be found for them in the small table under the main one. They will be integrated into the main list soon!

Good luck!

(I'm looking at 6+ hours for the update to finish, so I'll not be getting anything tonight)

Hello folks!

Major addition to Body Slam page. Two new camps added there, including one where the spell can be Soloed at 75, or duoed/trioed by some level 75 helpers for lower BLU's.

A solo strat for Reactor Cool added.

Learn levels corrected on a few pages where they were off.

I appreciate the updates folks are sending. Thank you!

Is it possible to repeat the BCNM? Galarhigg didn't use Body Slam for me and this caused me much anguish. I know you can repeat BCs in RoZ and CoP as long as the person to click the circle/door/gate/coalescence is actually on that mission, and I'm fairly certain you can in ToAU, though I haven't gotten around to any of the BC fights in that expansion. I'd hate to know I missed my chance.

Yes you can repeat this mission as many times as you want as long as you are in a party with someone who is currently on the mission and have him go in. It took me 3 tries with different ppl to see Body Slam, and went 1/1 on it. :D

Hello pochenlai.

I'm glad that you like the guide.

As for a solo leveling guide, I'm hesitant to write one up for a number of reasons. The biggest being that subjob and players personal risk desire plays a huge part.

I soloed as a /WHM and was amazingly conservitive targeting only DC and below, and staying at pet camps long after exp became too low for most players tastes. My guide would work, but it would be amazingly annoying and boring for most other players. While I'd find other folks target mobs insane to try. So much variety.

Building a true solo guide would be the work of the BLU forum, much as the Beastmasters did in their own subforum. Someone sets up a framework, and then all add to it. The Hunting grounds keep me pretty busy as they stand with updates, so I'm happy to let someone else take on a solo guide project :)
