Solo camps 75-90?Follow

Any good blm solo camps 75-90? With pet mobs starting to run out in the lower to mid 70s, I am wondering where are some good spots to solo outside Abyssea (do not have Abyssea). So I am interested in the camps outside there in particular levels 75-87/90 or any ideas of the optimum way to get as much XP as possible solo - I could level sync with some friends to do some pet monsters again, I suppose, but my play time will vary once the servers are back up so I'm just going to solo to 90. FOV might be an option, but BLM does not exactly breeze through mobs to do many pages fast and in an hour, so it might be better to kill a lot of EP, DC or EM's after level 75. With the new experience boost, the newly added Wings of the Goddess level 90+ monsters should be pretty good to finish 87-90 and I should be covered on that level range.

Any ideas is very appreciated. Thank you.

The old BLM pudding merit camp should take you to 90 pretty fast with the EXP buff. You can aspir them, and they take extra magic damage. There is also a zone nearby if you get into trouble. Link

75-80 puddings in mount zahylom or halvung should be quite good, at 80 the exp died off for me but that was before the double exp thing came into play. Alternative to puddings are the prince wamoura.
80-82 I went onto the seaboard vultures in miseraux coast 3 camps of these if others are fighting them, not the easiest in the world and with mediocre gear quite often needed to sleep them midfight.Got better once I had started to work on the magians ice and thunder staffs.Be warned a mistake here will see u eating dirt pretty quickly these hit hard and fast.
82+ spiders in sacarium seem to be working for me, but at the moment i haven't ventured blm past 83.

At 85+ I plan on doing the crabs on mount zahylom, these are roughly lvl 88, exp should be reasonable and rdm never had trouble sleeping em so neither should blm.

A word on blm regarding FoV, train a page of mobs at a time and ga nuke sleep entire page at once should help with that issue.

Thank you both for the suggestions!

This is a really interesting idea I will want to try actually. Wouldn't the mobs kill me too fast though, unless I do something with much, much lower level mobs?

Mana Wall + Convert can be used once every 10 minutes, and Mana Wall lasts 5 minutes as long as you dont run out of MP. With Mana Wall you take 50% less damage, and your spells cannot be interrupted. Put on your earth staff, throw up Stoneskin, Protect, Phalanx, Refresh, Blink and Mana Wall, then train a bunch of aggro/linking mobs. Sleepga/AOE Nuke, repeat until all mobs are dead.

With a half decent -pdt set including earth staff for the initial pull it should not be much of a problem, just try it with 3 mobs at once until you get confident.The most important thing with anything like this is knowing your own limits.Once you get manawall it will be much easier as the above poster already mentioned.

its a lil risky at 75 but 6 weapons is a full page in ro'maeve and i think pages are lil over 1k exp. all of these can be aspired. they link to sound, so buff up and run past one side to the zone line sleepga>nukeaga. i am currently doing this at 90 for my fire staff +1 trial. warning at 75 you might want to try 3 to start; i have a good enfeebling set and capped skills but somehow 1 seems not to sleep the frist try now and again.
another place seeing as crystal are a lil more uncommon pages in sky killing elements^^ just remember magic aggro from everything thats not a bird.

If you have WoTG, then it might be worth checking out the levels of pets in glacier and xarc but I don't know how far they'll take you.

I would look into starting your TotM staffs while doing this. You can save yourself some time by leveling and getting a head start on these awesome staffs.

The best suggestion: get abyssea.

Look at it this way. It's going to take you many many hours to get from 75 - 90 outside abyssea.

Why not do like 3 - 4 hours of actual RL work and buy abyssea?

Mow a lawn or something.
