Solo at 41?Follow

I've read up on what I can find regarding soloing RDM at 41.

The dnc solo guide, bst solo guide and mnk solo guide are all fairly helpful for this. Also the FoV guide has great info on mob levels.

The zones that look good for solo at 41 include Junger Forest, Beudacine(s?) Glacier, and Meripatah(s?) Mountains. These all include FoV pages up through level 51 or so.

I'm wondering if any other RDM that have soloed at this level have any input regarding favorite mob targets, a good subjob (considering /nin over /whm), food for solo (currently using cheifkabobs) or any other useful info.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions you might have.

I was still partying at that level, so I don't have much personal experience with it; but I will say that RDM/BLU is a great solo sub when you're going to be bloodtanking anyway. I'd stick to Fields of Valor targets, chow down on Mithkabobs, and just massacre Easy Preys with an XP band on. You'll be in the 50s getting AF, and 60s participating in campaign before you know it; and once you can get good XP from campaign you can ride it all the way to 75. Just don't forget to cap your skills every level so you stand a chance against Maat when it comes time to fight him.

Genbu, too, but I think he's shooting for more than 200 EXP in 4 hours.




Anyway, in the off chance you have access to an appropriately leveled /BST, you can pretty much decimate any other subjob combo out there. 41 is a bit of an awkward range, though, as the demon elementals in Zvahl are the only pet option that I know of (unless WotG added more behind my back) and they're a bit annoying since they're Ice and Dark elementals.

When I'd /BST a lot of jobs, I'd stay in Qufim until 42 or 43. Just grab a new regime every day and slaughter EPs. If you have /DRK, you should also consider targeting mobs with MP so you can Aspir them and prolong the amount of time between Converts or resting. Between Stoneskin and Phalanx, EPs with Signet on probably shouldn't be doing much harm, anyway. Keep spikes up, slow/para, and whittle down with melee and enspells. Can probably get 2-2.5k/hr as this combo. I've pushed 4-5k /BST, 6k with rings. Pets are seriously an enspell on crack if have good ones (and leeches own Qufim).
