I decided to poke around Gridania as the first area to test in the Beta, and I've run into a bit of a problem. After I hit level 13 Thaumaturge, the Thistletail Marmots become decidedly less than adequate in providing exp and skill, but the only other monsters around are galagos (which are green/blue but have an insanely strong drop kick move that you can only run away to avoid, making them take forever to kill) and some wolves and anglers, both yellow/green, which hit WAY harder than previous things that were yellow/green.
I can manage to take the wolves and anglers out every couple of minutes when punishing barbs comes back up, but otherwise, it's slow going at this point. Has anyone had better luck? Are the monsters easier on a different job, or are there monsters that are middle ranged between marmots +1 and wolves that aren't monkeys (maybe near the other cities)?
