Hello, I'm Azury Ariella of Wutai. I've created this guide for all those who wish to solo, at any rank, at any time. The SP You can get soloing is quite high. You can easily get 8000sp+ per hour, and occasionally get well over 10,000sp per hour. :]

This is part 2 of my guide located here: http://forum.square-enix.com/ffxiv/threads/21407-Azury-Ariella-s-*NEW*-SOLO-GUIDE-LOCATIONS-MORE-Ranks-1-50

Part 1 has a detailed explanation on how to solo, and part 3 has a number of helpful links and some tips to help you out.

If this helps you, please let me know somehow, and if you could post on the official forum thread to bump it, that would be nice. I'm hoping if people realize all the many options they have they will enjoy the game more and bring more success to the game.

Also feel free to contribute on here <3

Thank you :]

Part 2: List of Solo Camps and Locations


Note: These are not the only viable camps. You should explore and discover other camps for yourself. If you already know of other camps or find other camps, it would be awesome if you could post them in this thread. Thank You ^-^

--------------------------------

Suggested Rank: 1-20
Ranks 1-20 should be fairly easy. Just go from the first camp, to the rank 10 camp, to the rank 20 camp, in any area. You can pretty well kill any mobs because they all give more SP than they do post-20. If you're really stuck in these early levels post a request and I will find some nice camps.

--------------------------------

Gridania - The Black Shroud
Camp Tranquil **EFFICIENT**


Suggested Rank: 10 - 20
Location: 36-48 (The clearing just north-west of Camp Tranquil)
Mobs to Kill:
Oilbug: Rank 17-19 (420 sp on a R18 at rank 11)
Canopy Galago: 20-23

Notes: If you have a good skill set and a physical level over 20 you should be fine here at rank 10. If you're new to the game and just ranking up jobs for abilities, you may want to wait until 15 to come here. Fight Oilbugs and if you can handle them, add in Galagos when you run out. This is a great duo spot so if you're competing with someone just join together. Also an NPC pops here every so often. If you speak to it you can join into an imperial battle (like a behest). They take about 15 minutes and you should be rank 25-30+ to be able to solo the mobs.

--------------------------------

Limsa Lominsa - La Noscea
Cedarwood


Suggested Rank: 15 - 20
Location: 32-28
Mobs to Kill:
Sea Puk: Rank 25-28

Notes: There are other Sea Puks in the area.

--------------------------------

Coerthas
Camp Glory **EFFICIENT**


Suggested Rank: 15 - 30
Location: Southwest of Thordan's March
Mobs to Kill:
Saltspray Pteroc (puk): Rank 22-29 (Loctation: east and north side of Ixali encampment)
Goblin Thug: Rank 32-35ish (Location: west side of Ixali encampment) Note: somewhat slow respawn rate.

Notes: I would come here around rank 18 and stay here till rank 27ish. The puks go down easy and give good sp, and the goblins give -great- sp. This is honestly my favourite camp in the game. You can just run in circles around the ixali camp killing them. If there is competition team up and kill hippocerfs west of Ishgard.

--------------------------------

Ul'Dah - Thanalan
Nanawa Mines **EFFICIENT**


Suggested Rank: 20 - 30+
Location: 5-3, 6-4, 4-6
Mobs to kill:
Cellar Puk: Rank 30-34 (will o' the wykes can spawn in place of them rarely, drops coral +3 for crab bow)

Notes: If you are fighting around the edges and not on the middle platforms watch out for the skeletons in the small rooms.

--------------------------------

Coerthas
Camp Dragonhead **EFFICIENT**


Suggested Rank: 25 - 35
Location: South of Camp Dragonhead along and to the sides of the path
Mobs to kill:
Pteroc Matron (puk): Rank 35-39 (200ish sp per kill at rank 30)

Notes: Just keep killing the Pteroc Matrons, with a good skill set you shouldn't really ever need to rest. Maybe once every 20 or 30 min if you don't pay much attention. This camp is great up to rank 35 since there are so many of the puks that even if you only get 100sp per kill you end up killing them so fast it averages out to great sp.

--------------------------------

Ul'Dah - Thanalan
Copperbell Mines


Suggested Rank: 30 - 38+
Location: Nophica's Wells entrance and throughout the mines.
Mobs to Kill:
Heliodor Doblyn: Rank 41-44 (200 sp on a 44 at rank 35)

Notes: In a group at the entrance so can you can kill them quickly with minimal running around. Takes longer to kill than puks however. Watch your multi-hit/aoe attacks.

--------------------------------

Gridania - The Black Shroud
Tam-Tara Deepcroft **EFFICIENT**


Suggested Rank : 30 - 40+
Location: Right @ Entrance
Mobs to kill:
Spiny Dormouse: Rank 45-49 (180ish sp at rank 35)
Sordes (puk): Rank 40-44 (140ish sp at rank 35)
Goblin Freesword: Rank 45-49 (300sp on a r45 one at rank 35) (POS: 4-4). Note: 40ish gnats can spawn here in place of goblins.

Notes: You can come do Sordes here at rank 30 but I'd suggest waiting until rank 33 so if you kill off all the Sordes you can substitute spiny dormouse and goblins.
Goblins by far are the best sp. They are easy and fast to kill, and give the best SP rewards.
Sordes come in second, they are fast to kill and give decent sp.

--------------------------------

Ul'Dah - Thanalan
Camp Broken Water


Suggested Rank: 30 - 40

Location: 38-38 and the entire area there
Mobs to Kill:
Quartz Doblyn: Rank 41-44

Notes: not the greatest camp. Best to come here around rank 33ish where you get about 200sp per kill. They are also pretty far apart so don't expect fast sp. Fairly quick respawn times though.

--------------------------------

Ul'Dah - Thanalan
Camp Broken Water


Suggested Rank: 30 - 40+
Location: 45-41 (the lil pond southeast of broken water)
Mobs to Kill:
Amalj'aa Drubber: Rank 40-42 (300sp on a R40 at rank 35)

Notes: Slow kills, more challenging fights. Should prob avoid this till at least 33 or 34 unless you want some serious challenges.

--------------------------------

Ul'Dah - Thanalan
Camp Broken water


Suggested Rank: 33 - 48+
Location: 45-39 and surrounding area
Mobs to kill:
Amalj'aa Drubber: Rank 43-46 (450sp on a R46 at rank 35)

Notes: quite slow kills, challenging fights. You may want to go to the 45-41 Drubber camp first, before graduating to these higher level Drubbers.

--------------------------------

Coerthas
Camp Riversmeet


Suggested Rank 35 - 40
Location: South of the river
Mobs To Kill:
Wild Hog: Rank 40-42 (200sp on a r40 at rank 35)

Notes: kind of slow kills but you can farm hog skins for Leatherworking.

--------------------------------

Coerthas
Camp Glory


Suggested Rank: 35 - 45

Location: Ixali Encampment
Mobs to Kill:
Ixali Fencer: Rank 44-49 (420 sp on a R44 at rank 35)

Notes: These are not easy or fast fights. But the SP does pay off. And they do agro. So it's a challenge but if you like a slower more rewarding fight it's great. I'd go at rank 36.

Wow kool beans for your helpfull info. I've been soloing since I started minus a few parties in the 20's and this can be very helpful since I'm only on randomly for a few hrs every few days!!! By the way I think this game is gonna turn out to be a beauty when all is said and done. Keeping it real and still chugging along WOOT!!!

Thanks so much for this!

I will attest to the Oilbug and Canopy Galago camp - I went there for a quest and ended up staying there for 2-3 hours getting CON up to 18 with little effort.

I'm glad to have an idea of where to look though - I look forward to trying out Camp Glory on both my CON and my THM this weekend.

Not really 1-50 is it? Kinda stops short at 45. Good work though, I was just hoping for those last 5 levels since that's where I am now.

you can grind the high level ixali and drubbers as if they were puks (speed through them) to push yourself to 50. (I did put 48+ on the drubber one). It's just fairly slow compared to parties. I believe this is because the game seems to lack rank 55-65 easy-kill mobs. However, I have been looking around and trying to find some better camps and will hopefully come up with one soon ^^. I was really hoping someone would post a camp in one of the forums :p.

Nice work... though I did have to chuckle at how this guide doesn't touch on DoM at all.

I would love for someone who likes the MP changes to do the same for DoM so I could learn how the pros solo efficiently on mages.

Yeah sorry about that, both my mages are only 20 due to the whole physical-stats thing. Waiting till they remove phys levels and then pushing my mages up. These tactics somewhat work for mages though. you just use DD spells in place of auto attack on fast-kill mobs. WS's still do surprisingly good dmg (I'm guessing due to the current failure of attributes). I know there are more complex mage tactics though and from talking to people it seems if you use mage right you can solo better than a DoW.
