With all the hub-bub of BSTs leaving Allakhazam, and the BST Bible taken off the top of our forums, I decided to make a list of all the useful links I have from my bookmark list. All of these links have at one point aided me in my long road to level 75 as a Beastmaster. Hopefully a large portion of your questions can be answered by some of these links below.

If you have any useful links, PLEASE either respond here or send me a PM. I'll keep this updated as I get information, along with new posts that pop up in the future. Please hit me with suggestions, there is far to much useful information out there to be lost, and I refuse to watch a community that I've been a part of for almost 2 years fall apart over a lack of info.

Hope you all enjoy!

I would suggest adding the "Post-Update Viable Hunting Grounds" thread. That is the most recent and most up to date XP camp thread (and should really be the XP camp sticky).

I have a ToAU xp camp thread going but it's pretty preliminary at this point.

Both are still on the first page.

Updated, added:

"BST Leveling Spots that Worked for me"
"Post Update Viable Hunting Grounds"
"LVL 75 BST End-Game Guide"

and removed RunningDemons BST Bible upon request.

No worries folks, it's basically just all these links typed out now, it was more up there for respect to a past BST then anything else.

Also trying to get ahold of a LoTB member to see if I can link thier forums up here. More of a motivational spot that has pictures of the insane stuff that full BST groups are capeable of. If you're a LoTB member and happen to read this before forums are linked, please ask a senior member if I can have permission to link it.

Thanks for the positive feedback guys!

Just a few corrections to your guide links to make them more accurate and consistent.

-Durginn is of Shiva - to be more specific Durginn is of LoTB on Shiva

-Also Under All bst adventures both the all bst Prommy and all bst to rank 10 in all nations are LoTB as well.

I was going to make my own version of this until someone linked me to this one.

The version I was going to do would contain some of the following categories for links to be added to:

General Guides (aka Beast Bibles)
Subjobs
BST as a subjob (/BST threads)
Solo Location Guide
Duo/Trio Location Guides
BST Party Guides (BST / SMN pet parties)
XP Party Guides (for those BST who wish to party in standard XP parties)
Equipment
CoP Related
NM Related (I may need assistance on which NMs for this one)
End Game Info
Artifact Info
Dynamis/Limbus
BCNM/ENMs

This thread in genearl looks like a good start.

Could you update the thread to encompass the current stickies? If so we could probably replace all 3 of the current ones with this one so that it would be a lot better off in general.

Thanks.

2 of the 3 stickies are in this compilation. The hunting grounds version 1 and 2 is under the section "Spots to Camp" and The Anthologies are under "Misc" and both have (currently stickied) next to them.

I left out the LS one because I feel that should still be stickied. I think if it's up top it'll be easier for Icharis to update.

I’m afraid Alla only allows for a max of 4 stickies. That mean something else would have to go.

Kinda sad to. We have such a wealth of info needed

Yea the 4 sticky limit is annoying but it's better than seeing the whole 1st page being nothing but stickies. Since the 2 of the 4 current stickies are linked above in the OP, this would cut us down to 3 stickies so we could have 1 more later on if needed.

I don't know if anyone has suggested it yet, but DalarenBahamut's leveling diary is pretty good and even if it is a little bit outdated because of all the pre-patch information, it still has some pretty good comments in it.

Here is the link to his thread :

Hmmm.. I guess Keftank discountinued his blog ; ;

Quote:
10/10 EDIT: I've decided the LJ won't be back for a bit, not until a certain issue has been addressed fully. Basically, if any of you want to know why, TG (and some outsiders) used a lot of people to get through into (some instances more literal than others) ED forums and spy on our sacred LS information. So just as a precaution, I will be limiting traffic on my LJ. And to people that obviously can't tell the difference, one bot program = all bot program.


Removed link as of 12-07-07~

If anyone wants to work on a new end-game guide, PM me a link for it and I'll put that up instead. Could use something with the gear that has been added over the past few years (ToAU and on weren't included in the link)
