Hey guys, I always loved soloing things as much as possible. So I thought it would be cool if we all put together a list of the NMs or interesting things we can solo successfully.
I'll start with one we mostly know about from another thread :
An easy solo with /nin, Fan Dance, EVA build, and stun for shadows.
More discussion here :
Those ball and flower things in sea.
Warning: This one can be very dangerous and challenging at times.
I go /war, pop defender and fan dance, EVA build.
Tried on /NIN before but got pwnt before having Fan Dance.
Sometimes gets dangerous but i never died last night.
Have stun ready for the casting mobs since you will lack shadows.
Those flower mobs mean business, don't be too long under 50% HP or it might 1shot you. Because of this precaution my TP usage was less than efficient. Be on top of your steps cuz you'll need every bit of TP.
Reraise definitely recommended.
Campaign Mobs (Great practice)
Starting at lvl 70 you can solo normal campaign mobs.
Again i prefered /WAR with defender for more curing exp.
It'll take a looong time to kill one mob, I suggest soloing it to 50% then dragging it to others players looking for a target, switch to DD mode once you lost hate. Change tags, repeat. The Yag mobs are a little risky because they can blow your weapon off, that's the only times i got killed.
I threw myself at every normal campaign mob i could find, MNK, BLM, NIN, PLD, WHM etc. NIN was by far the most annoying because of sticky paralyze and constant debuff spam making it hard to erase in one shot.
Keep stun in your back pocket for the dangerous casting mobs.
Steelshells in B.Tree (Great practice)
This was great fun, I think around 73 i started soloing these for dagger, EVA, Parry skillups, and boy did i get skillups. Good fun and great practice for later challenges.
Again i went /WAR for defender (crabs last longer, cure less often).
That's all i have for now but i'll be sure to keep posting.
Please make sure you put mob names in yellow and maybe bold too for easily scanning the list!
