    EXP spots in Expansion areas.

    I'm tired of exping in the old areas with all the crowded spots.. It would be great if everyone posted their experiences with random lvl EXP in the new areas. Such as recommended lvl range and locations. Not only merit PT exp but lvl 50~75 or whatever the lowest lvl PT can exp in the new areas. I'm going out today to look for a exp spot for lvl 65ish PT.

    Thanks

    You're lucky an admin isn't on yet, this thread should be locked for your utter laziness in either using the search function, or reading the stickies at the top of the damn forum.

    depending on the time, xp spots in the new expansion are no different.

    What the hell are you talking about? The old areas have been practically deserted since the expansion. Last night I /sea Ruavitau and there were zero people, yes zero people, in the zone...and this was with 3k people online

    Derzoll,

    There's a spot in Reef with a bunch of crabs and bones that con DC to 75. I wanted to try it for my next static passed the flamingo levels. If they're on 5 minute respawn, it would be a very nice camp.

    Edit: Sorry, I meant as an alternative during flamingo levels.

    Crabs suck for leveling. There I said it.

    Actually I dont mind them as DRK. Its seeing all the MNKs, THFs, and NINs hit for 0s that makes me hate them.

    And yes, you could have.

    Crabs are easy prey so long as you have a decent backline that knows how to debuff & dispel.

    Also, don't invite a piercing DD. Square pegs don't fit into round holes, unless the holes are VT

    Hardly the THF, MNK, or NIN's fault.

    Blame it on the red mage or bard who isnt dispelling. My damage is fine, I dont remember the last time I hit for 0 on a crab, aside from when it puts a buff up, then the whole melee section of the party's damage turns to shit.

    Minuets and Dispel! Nobody should be hitting for 0 unless somebody isn't doing their job properly.

    I don't think crabs are any better exp than other mob types, but it's certainly not any worse.

    My monk tore crabs apart when it was fighting them =\
    The only time damage sucks is the few seconds stoneskin is up, or if your rdm or brd is retarded and doesn't dispel Scissor Guard.

    I see a lot of THFs hit 0s even with it dispelled The MNKs and NINs though usually are fine if the RDMs and BRDs (and BLUs in the future zomg) are on the ball. But you can't always depend on that.

    Pick on the low defense mobs without any retarded buffs. There's your big XP/hr. <3 Raptors, Doom Toads, Cockatrice, Tigers, etc.

    Nothing like chain #17 in Kuftal at like lv59sih on Raptors/Goblins.

    Fuck Crabs. Well, I guess Crabs are good for Paladin tanks maybe. <.<

    2005 and Dunes/Qufim 06. Unless the THFs have wised up and started subbing WAR more and using attack gear (I havent seen either of these) I doubt its gotten better.

    Yes, Tigers are excellent WS Spam XP mobs.

    Tiger uses Roar.
    Melee1 is paralyzed.
    Melee2 is paralyzed.
    Melee1 is paralyzed.
    Melee3 is paralyzed.


    So are cockatrice, because WS spam parties dont invite whm's.

    Cockatrice uses Baleful Gaze.
    Meleex is paralyzed.
    (Meleex) Stona!

    Oh christ, like 2 people with Paralyna can't clear it off all the melee in under 5 seconds.
