SCHs by no means have to deal with doing quests to get seals. We can also trigger grellow !! sometimes which aids in drop rates for seals. This post outlines some common NM solos and how you can do it too.

Hand Seals (Koghatu)
SCH/RDM: Easy but long solo in Uleguerand Range. Can farm the acroliths for the pop item, drop rate isn't terrible and they die in 2 nukes (assuming MAB/MAB/Refresh atma). On pop, bring it (+12% ideally) to Conflux #7 and kite it around, you'll need sneak to get past Detectors. Use Bio II and Alacrity Water V (Aero V does reduced damage). Takes roughly 25 minutes.

Dangers: Getting too cocky and getting hit. He doesn't cast spells but does around 300 per hit. In terms of instant mega-TP moves, Dire Straights if I recall is the nasty one, which is used 3 times in a row (will only ready it when you're in range). It's got about ~13" range on it so it's quite long, but can be "xxx is too far away."ed. You'll need to experiment with timing. I don't think +12% is needed, but it is very useful as always.

Feet Seals (Quasimodo)
SCH/NIN: Slightly more tricky solo but manageable. +12% at least is required, use Ambition atma if you do not have speed bonus. Alacrity Aero V brings it down quite quickly, you can take it to #5 (long run) or bring it to rabbits/crawlers and kite there.

Dangers: Shadow Burst curse which reduces movement speed. Doesn't last too long though, but you may take a few hits at this time hence /NIN. Try to keep Stoneskin up.

Body Seals (Ironclad Smiter)
SCH/RDM: Long solo in Altepa. Bring it to the ??? for Tabilia and kite around the ruins. Alacrity Water V nukes. If you take hits, get distance and cure yourself back up. Hope it uses Ballistic Kick (grants magic damage x3).

Dangers: Not kiting well enough. /NIN is not good since a normal hit takes 2-3 shadows. Movement speed required. Another danger is not timing your nuke properly, not getting the position right for the nuke (corner ideal), or not blinking out the locked animation. Very long solo potentially though if you get unlucky on TP moves.

Head Seals (Wherwetrice)
Heard this is possible by deaggroing it and kiting around rocks.

Leg Seals (???)
Haven't heard any reports of leg seal NM solos on SCH (Gukumatz/Sirrush/Avalerion).
