Yeah it's hard to say now with the SP being changed as far as solo, but I think hippocerfs in Coerthas should net you decent SP at your level, maybe Cellar Puks in Nanawa Mines with a few bombs and djiggas thrown in and even Swordbreakers(just make sure to lop of the head), at 34 I was netting about 50 SP per kill on puks, 100+ on bombs and Swordbreakers(literally a full day here took me to 35, I had my reasons though for going this mind numbing route to 35), at 31 SP should be better than what I was getting. Of course there's always leves and behests which took me to 36 with some intermittent solo grinding. 36-38, I've been for the majority of the time in Mistbeard doing Yarzons and Bombs, it's slow but yarzons are easy to kill and getting a 100+ SP per kill, little downtime in between mobs. I think feasibly I can go to 40 just solo grinding in Mistbeard, with eyes and hyenas and hopefully eventually the Buccaneers being next on the list for SP'ing on.
As far as groups, I've only had 3-4 SP groups the whole time I've been playing, none after the Nov. update, but behests seem to be a good route for groups if you don't mind the wait between behests. Copperbell Mines maybe, on Ants? Other than that, I can't say.
Let's be clear though, solo grinding is long and tedious, especially the more you climb up the ranks. I think it's safe to assume you won't get more than a 1-3 ranks a week starting at your level, add in fatigue which seems to hit every rank that you get(at least for me now at my rank). Gotta have the right mindset to be able to sit there for hours killing the same mob over and over, I can do it, don't know how, but I just plod through it.
Hopefully we see a fix on the SP and this whole fatigue thing done away with.
