Solo BST Guide (WIP)

Post by Ashton » Fri Mar 01, 2019 3:34 pm

I've been looking around the internet trying to find a good solo guide for BST leveling since back around ~2005 I solo'd it all the way up to 75. It was a lot of fun and brought a total different perspective on the game, the enmity system, and taught you to be aware of your surroundings at all times.

Since Eden has slightly different level ranges or mob positions than some guides would suggest, I've decided to start compiling my own list of good spots as I am leveling up. I just hit 22 on last night so I'm right around that part of the guide. It's been a real struggle to find accurate stuff so I want to help anyone else that might want to embark on this journey too.

Any camp suggestions would be welcome and I can put them on my spreadsheet. I'll link it below for those who may be interested in that oldschool experience :)

I wrote this guide for Nasomi back before he screwed up all his mob levels in the different areas, it may be pretty useful to you in making this. I haven't played Beastmaster on Eden and have no intentions to, but it's still probably solid info, and most of that stuff was based on my actual experience leveling 1-75.

Here's a guide I put together back in the KillingIfrit days that someone shamelessly stole from me and put on ffxiah. (You'll notice he forgot to delete my name from the middle part of the guide :P) ANYWAY...

I used this when leveling my two BSTs to 75, one in 2004 and another around 2008-ish, so hopefully it is accurate for Eden!

My XP spot so far leveling.
1-10 I just charmed ep till DC since u don't lose XP

10-14 I did the lake in lathaine I charmed sheeps and then eventually I would charm crabs as well. When I had a pet low on health I would just go around the lake killing mobs

Level 15 I did fungars inside the valley below nicknamed fungar alley

Level 16-17 ordelles caves rescue entrance just bats

Level 20-23 buburimu peninsula I would charm dhamlaes and the birds

Level 23-25 valkrum dunes secret beach I first used flys crabs vs gobs and at 24 i would kill pugils o some times used pugil but for most part i used flys . Some times I had to use pet food

Level 30-33 carpenter landing I charmed diving beetle , fish and tigers and fought birdtraps . Sometime I would kill tigers when they spwaned tough

Most of leveling spot I got have been fro. FFXI WIKI for bst has leveling guides for solo. Some of camps don't work because some of the mobs level are different than retail. I say just explore and see what works. I tried a couple camps and some just didn't work.

You can probably start here at 41 or 42.
The Camp was near Rabao
44-45 Was kinda slow but every other camp I tried weren't that great.

While I don't agree with all of the leveling locations in the guide as there are much better places to exp, I really like the format and detail of the guide! Keep it up! :)

Thank you for posting this guide!

Long time FFXI player, but first time leveling up BST.

Quick question about your first camp, Tahrongi Canyon; I went at Lvl 13, charmed a EM Crawler and had it fight a T Dhamel, only to watch in horror as it got shredded and myself soon to follow.

Is there that much difference between a Lvl 13 and a Lvl 14 mob? Am I doing something wrong?

Thanks in advance!
