I am mostly a solo player due to time constraints, and loving leves for that reason. Just dinged 37 gladiator. Only sub I got is 26 mrd for bloodbath. I'm doing 5 star 30 leves solo in obscure locations. Should I start doing 40 leves now?

Compared to pre-patch I am leveling faster now when I solo with the after reward 3000+ sp at least. Maybe I was doing something wrong before since I'm hearing complaints of leve sp nerf. Loving this patch. More SP more challenge in Leves. I never depended on mp ever, so I don't know what I missed before having a mage "subjob." Leves are dropping potions for me in chests in case things get desperate.

Also looking for an LS in Rabanasty, all my previous ones have long died off and while I enjoy soloing, I wouldn't mind trying the new party content or even an old fashioned leve party anywhere.

I'm a little nervous I'm not learning how to be a gladiator in a party since all I do is mostly solo and sustain myself.

At 36 Arc I'm easily soloing R40s on 1 star, and duoing them with another 36 mrd on 3-4 stars.

In my experience most R40 leves on one star are similar to 3-4 star R30 leves. The raptor poacher leve in Nine Ivies spawns R35 enemies on one star, which makes it laughably easy.

From R37-39ish PGL I was 1 and 2 starring Grid R40 leves, @ 43 I'm 4 and 5 starring them. Roughly 8K avg SP per run, slightly higher with favor.

There's a few leves where you can't separate mobs reliably or where non-leve mobs may spawn and aggro, those ones are hit and miss for me for what star level I can complete them at. I start high then wherever the spawn is I may have to drop down a notch.

Yeah if you get Dirty Mongrels it's time to lower the difficulty :D

I started doing rank 40 after patch at rank 39 in 9 ives and treespeak after i knew i could solo a Eft ,you'll keep running by those and they respawn in about a minute.I lived in Humblehearth for months cranking the stars up to 4 after one full leve cycle in rank 40 areas I never go back to rank 30.Rank 40 leve SP bonus is 4.7k to 5.3k and gathering is 300+ sp no GA needed.Gratz on the rank 30 5 star those rank 50 squirrels mopped the floor with me. If you can solo a rank 45 eft you can do rank 40 leves.Playing solo you never have to deal with FF11 insult and boot from and replaced 30 seconds later from party.Smiley: lol
