    BLM65 Solo spots?

    Okay, I've gone a complete 24 hours with my flag up on BLM65 without a single invite. I found this lovely little spot in Aydeewa Subterrane with Qiqirin Enterprisers (Ranger mobs) that yield around 300exp a kill. The problem is, several other black mages camp here too, and there's only 4 mobs.

    So my question is, are there any good spots with ranger mobs for a Black Mage to solo, other than on Enterprisers?

    Solo bunny pets in Bibiki Bay. I used to chain 4 for 400+ XP with no band there around that level, it was better than party XP.

    They refuse to manaburn for some reason, as that was my first idea too. "Hay, 5 black mages soloing..." I guess soloing 4k/hr is more lucrative than getting 8-10k/hr in a party. Makes total sense to me...owait.

    However, someone mentioned pets in Bibiki and Newton Movapolis, so I tried Newton and failed. I'm going attempt the Bibiki bunnies now.

    which part of newton did you try? Maybe you're at the wrong part of the place or too early.

    I was at the 3 switch entrance, G-9, right behind the Bugabears. I couldn't find the exact right spot to nail the goblin's bat and not have 2 moblins rush me. Newton failed just because I failed, the moblin came along with the bat and two shotted me.

    However, I found some more rooms in Aydeewa Subterrane with the Qiqirin rangers, so that has turned out pretty well. Plus there's a couple spots where you can nuke worms from a ledge, and the worms AI got confused and cast maybe three spells total. When I say confused, it would wait 20-30 seconds before casting anything, and a couple of times that would be Quake, which was easily stunned.

    Most magic casting mobs are programmed to cast again after 20 seconds regardless of whether they are in range.
