I'm R15 GLD (physical level 22) and I can easily solo all rank 20s. Sometimes it makes me wonder whether that numeric designation actually refers to physical level.
But yeah, other than leves, post-15 soloing in Gridania seems hard, as everywhere I go, mobs going all orange and red. Even yellow galagos can drop me every now and then.
Question: which city has more dodo yields, Limsa or Ul'dah? (I've briefly traveled through the latter, around drybone, but the dodo mob yield seems low.)
You know, GLD = Goldsmith, GLA = Gladiator. Anyway, if you travel to the pass leading to Broken Water from Drybone, you can find some camps of dodo around there. But it seems that once you kill all the Dodo, Cobber Coblyn will spawn instead and after the batches of Coblyn will be Dodo again. Another spot is south of the road leading to Gridania, opposite side of the Cactuar spawns.
