I xped bst in party pretty much all the way to 50, then I started to like soloing better, so I used this guide; however no offense, loads of ideas are not that clever, or at least not for the average bst, like me, that doesn't run around with CHR+1000 gears. I'm playing a mithra for the record; possibly the worst race yea I know but I have fun with it, which is all that matters to me. I don't have a whole lot of CHR gears either and it's not a priority for me to buy some.
Anyway, this guide helped me yes and I'm thankful for it, but it also made me waste my time on occasion, going to places that I simply could not use for xp. So I have some comments on several ideas, which I hope will help people so they don't do the same mistakes.
50-51: Yhoator Jungle
PETS TO CHARM: Master Coeurls (47-50)
MOBS TO FIGHT: Goblins [Bouncer, Hunter] (51-55)
NOTES: Camp at I-7.
CONTRIBUTOR(S): Lokkii, Katt
The ONE coeurl that is there is like DC- (surrounded by mobs that aggro, too) and gobs are close to VT... I don't know if people that suggested that were duo'ing or what but that is no good place to solo.
55-59: Toraimarai Canal
PETS TO CHARM: Dark Aspics (53-55)
MOBS TO FIGHT: Impish Bats (58-60), Mincravers (60-62), Fleshcravers (60-62)
NOTES: Camp near Horotutu Entrance.
Mind/fleshcravers are nowhere near Horotutu entrance; Fallen Soldiers/Mages are, but the only potential pet that's around is a DC Dark Aspic that is way too hard to charm, especially at level 55. Consider Toraimarai Canal good at 60+ (well decent, GC still is the very best camp), next to Windy Walls. Oh and also the only reason why I went there was because my nation being Windy and having a pass, it was easy for me. For someone without a pass... eh not so much. Too much running around I'd think.
57-59: Uleguerand Range
PETS TO CHARM: Variable Hares (58-61), Uleguerand Tigers (59-62)
MOBS TO FIGHT: Variable Hares (58-61), Esbats (59-61), Uleguerand Tigers (59-62), Snolls (60-63)
NOTES: Cast invisible, hug right wall until you come to tunnel entrance. Much safer than at start of zone.
57-58, Camp at tunnel. Use Hares vs. Bats and Tigers.
59, Use Hares and Tigers vs. Hares, Bats, Tigers, and Snolls.

Uleguerand Range at level 57 yea right... Tigers and bats are VT/IT, hares T+. Tried again at level 59, I could only find one EM rabbit, next a couple VT tigers... Everything is either T or VT yea, that's no good camp at 57-59, maybe 60~ if that.
62-69: Cape Teriggan
PETS TO CHARM: Beach Bunnies (62-65), Sand Lizards (62-66)
MOBS TO FIGHT: Goblins [Alchemists, Mercenaries, Sheperds, Bandits] (65-68), Terror Pugils (66-70)
62, Not recommended to fight Bandits.

Just checked this place now, level 62, all rabbits are T, pretty much all lizzards VT... So I say wait for level 63, and even 64 really. With ToAU coming up, I don't know if I will though.
Again I did not mean to offend anyone, sorry if I did. I guess people that posted those ideas just remembered roughly where they xpd at lower level, and relied on alla to find out what level mobs were. Or that yea they had uber CHR and charmed T mobs at all times, I don't know. My BST is level 62 so I tried those places pretty recently, I'm just trying to be more precise to help people out. Obviously I haven't tried any higher level area; I think I will migrate to ToAU as soon as I can though^^;
Anyway hope this helps! Edited, Feb 7th 2008 11:15pm by Sahteene
