As the title suggests, Rank 44+ grinding. Where are the good spots and whats there range. For the most part i do rely on Leves and behest. But knowing were to go during the wait for reset will help me a fair bit. Use and format you so choose, and if there's a post already made please post the link. Thank you for your time in advance.

Doblyns. Lots of doblyns.

At R44 you're strong enough to take on the ones NE and S of Broken Water. A less camped spot (at least on Rabanastre) is outside of the ferry docks.

HOWEVER - since the patch it is far less efficient to solo grind than to group grind. In a well run groups with leve links, you can earn 25K+ SP per hour. Soloing, good luck hitting 10K SP/hr.

If you insist upon soloing, though, doblyns are by far the most efficient option. They drop nice lewts too (silver and the occasional mythril).
Djigga, please. Highland Hyurs can't jump.

Why would you want to solo at that rank? Grouping is far more efficient.

There are all sorts of reasons a person might want to solo. Like... between groups, etc. A place I really like currently is west of Horizon. Follow the road like you're going to the ferry, and once it dips down into the lower region, around there.

There are the lower ranked variety of sphene doblyns there (200sp), mongrels(200sp), and a variety of the floating eyes (300sp). It's pretty good for solo and duo. It works well as an archer because you can pretty much 1 shot the sphenes.

A lot depends on your class, but I find that's a really nice place because it has doblyns but also gives you some other flavor. I don't suggest the sphenes to the east of the aether gate around there though because they spawn Diremites (similar to how copper bell does), so you'll have to kill them to keep sphenes spawning, and they're less optimal.

The upper tier of sphene doblyns is directly east of Uldah, so you can test them out every now and then and move over to there when you're ready. They're conveniently close to uldah, so you can grind on them while waiting for a party to get ready or whatever. Unfortunately all of these places are a bit far from r40 behests.

I solo a lot. not much else to do between leves and behest. I try to find a good area close to a camp my level and solo for 45 minutes at a time between behests.
