Ok, we are going to 80. This means that Imps in places like the Mire are no longer going to be our goto guys for solo XP. I was so saddened by this realization that I almost considered not leveling and finishing up my MP, STR, and last few Blue Mage-specific merits on imps and then leveling up.
But then I decided that there must be some alternative. Where do we go now for easy merit XP?
Maybe MMM mazes with Imps or lolibri? Some new Abbysea mob that happens to stun quite well? Maybe even FoV on EM Manticores in Cape Terrigan in short two-day bursts?
Any speculation is welcome.
