Hello fellow black mages! After completing all my subs, got the most recent equipment and prepared, I am finally ready to continue my black mage thats 47. I've never done pet soloing but I figured it was time to try because I wasn't finding any invites or parties that wanted a blm anymore. So I used the guide on here for the pets, and it said the only place it recommended was Cape Terrigan.

I go there, and to my surprise there are dozens and dozens of people, at least 30 or more at a time. I wasn't sure if it was FOV or what because before that there were hardly anyone here. So anyway, I try to nab some goblin's rabbit pets and I couldn't get a single one. There were just too many people taking all the kills and melee training things all over the place. My question now is, from your experience is there another good alternative to 47 for doing this? I just got very frustrating for my first time not being able to get a single one. I think the guide might be outdated since that place is so camped now...

oh ouch, FoV steamroll eh? well you can either keep /sea ing the zone and try and hit it offpeak or apparantly the goblin's leeches in Labyrinth of Onzozo are the same level as the rabbits, but I couldn't comment on their HP, that's all the help I can give you really I'm afraid :X

The outpost is a headache. I used the pet otw to Garuda, probably around (F-6) or thereabouts. There's a Shepherd and an Alchemist in the tunnel, and it's not too hard to camp south of the Shepherd (and north of the Mercenary, which is the only other mob you have to worry about).

There's also an open area at (F-7) which has 2 Shepherds, but there are also raptors and assorted nasties so I didn't bother with that.

I was at 47 just last week, and I got extremely lucky. This is what happened for me, but it might be a little difficult to get all the pieces together...

I got invited to a 4xBLM party in Yuhtunga Jungle. We had 4 BLM's level synced with a BLU and a DRK to 24. The BLU would pull and the DRK would voke, then we had a PL to cure the tank. We always got chain 5 for around 300ish, and kills were super fast. I ended up going from 47 to 50 with the help of 2 anniversary band charges and an emperor band charge. I fell behind 14 levels on elemental magic skillup, but I would trade that in for 35kish exp in 3 hours through those levels. I was trying to suffer through the goblin's ladybug in East Ronfaure (S), but I was really too low for that camp.

So basically I have nothing to add to the solo conversation, but if you ever get bored, have a friend who's willing to PL, and see someone out there lvl 24 seeking, then round up all the BLM's out there lfp and have some fun.

I leveled off the Tonberry Elementals in Pso'Xja at 47 (think I went there level 44 or 45).
I remember staying there until 49 or 50.

It can be a very slow camp due to the timing required in avoiding both tonberries that roam there and the elemental moving out of range.

If you decide to try this camp then I highly recommend subbing Ninja.

I did try out Cape Terrigan but either got aggro from the goblin or from the rabbits around.

The (F-6)ish camp in Cape Teriggan is potentially really awesome. Some unfavorable gob movement can ***** things up, but I just got done with that camp and it rocked. Forget the outpost - it freakin blows.

I was in the tunnel on the way to Garuda from 44-49. 48 was horribly slow but there is nothing you can really do about that, just stick it out. Gob movement can slow you down pretty bad.

Bring all your scrolls, meds, RRs, and whatever and get to 49 as fast as you can so you can go to Gustav and be in Blm heaven!

FOV really brought that many people out to that are >.<

i was out there before that hit and had a blast at the outpost with 2 two targets to pull from.

I always liked it cause a lot of the times as the HNM hunters would come running through the zone they would grab on of the non pet goblins and kill em so i had a better zone to pull from

I loved the Outpost

Get bent.

Thanks for everyones tips! I have made it to 56 now as BLM and I'm loving it! What I did for level 47 was duo with my friend in Gustav tunnel which helped me get to 50 and then 51 for Freeze and the staffs. Boy, does that make a huge difference in helping pet solo. Thanks again!

Glad to hear you got past that.

I'm gonna throw my input out for anyone else that might be looking at this thread for answers.

I was stuck solo'ing in Pso'Xja at 47. It was extremely slow due to waiting for the mobs to be in the right position and the posibility of linking if the mob also moves after you grab the ele.

Once I hit 48, I decided to try West Sarutabaruta [S]. I went to the camp at H-8. There are 2 gobs and one with a rarab pet. No other bunnies to link it with around, plenty of room to maneuver, just a great camp all around.

However, just be warned it was pretty hard at 48, they hit hard and double attack, takes 4 spells unresisted just to bring them down at that level. I had 93 total INT. And also note that sleep rarely got resisted on them.
