Grinding in Ul'dahFollow

Any suggestions on where to find enough monsters for grinding outside of leves in Thanalan/near Ul'dah? I'm only like rank 8 Conjurer.

I found a couple pockets of mobs while doing gathering leves, but others found them as well eventually. Right now you just have to wander around a bit.
I don't believe in good guys versus bad guys anymore… I only see a plethora of states acting in self interest… with varying ethics and moral standards of course, but self-interest nonetheless

I cant find anything to kill.

Running around Uldah, I see some mobs, but 6 other people are running for them too.
Maybe they need to turn up to spawns?

There is so much open space without mob spawns.

I had a few problems at first like this, but eventually found a nice corner of the map where once I killed one mob, another one spawned. I was eventually killing everything that popped and nobody had a chance.

Maybe I saw you there. Anyhow, try stay where you kill a mob.

I noted this problem during OB. Noob zones in all MMOs need to be swarming with mobs. There needs to be at least 5x-10x as many mobs around as there currently are. Part of the challenge should not be simply FINDING a mob to kill.

I've had no issues. I won't give away some of my spots, but I would suggest you explore the exterior of zones for caves. I was in one cave, when I opened my map it showed me in the middle of a no land area. Think I sat in there for an hour with no one else, about 10 spawns to myself.

If you are running around the leve area, or out in the open, you most likely are going to be fighting for anything to kill. I'd also suggest going through the mountains, across ledges, had another place that had 5-6 spawns but it was way at the back of a mountain range.

For a lot of the areas this is probably true, but note that if you sit in one place for 10 seconds you may be suddenly surrounded by stuff you couldn't see a second ago.

Of course, this probably isn't the case most of the time, but I was just running through the canyons between Ul'dah and Camp Bluefrog and was saying "Geez there's no mobs out here, that's just lame" in ls chat. In the back of my head I'm thinking "Watch them suddenly appear" and sure enough the second I was done griping about it I was surrounded by stuff that wanted me dead.
