Hey all! I'm looking to get my WHM up to 99 and was planning on soloing most of the levels. With the decline in Aby parties, I just don't think burning is feasible.

I plan on doing GoV/FoV with trusts and just burning through DC/EP. I have never solo'd on WHM before so really don't know how to go about it. Should I use clubs or staves? Use PLD/DDX2 trusts or just supports to crest me? Treat me like a DD, tank or healer?

I don't really need tips on location (but won't turn them down).

Any suggestions or tips would be appreciated!

Dual wielding clubs in a DD set (not sure how much of a set you can get at low level) will be faster than using a staff. If you're fighting DC you can probably tank them yourself with support trusts so I would use Ayame just because she`ll skillchain with you.

Might take awhile...

That said, you may even be able to manage GoV in Bostoneiux (or however you spell that) if you have the Gadalar trust. He loves his Firaga, and those leeches melt fairly easily.

Ninja edit: maybe get an LS friend to burn some XP for you while they gather CP/merits in Adoulin?

I would whm/dnc clubs, and use Qultada Karaha/Koru and like Mayakov.

The most important thing is choosing proper camps. Floor 10 Delkfutt is great to 49.

Eldieme bones worked till... 63ish (bonus for blunt damage~)

Leeches are really slow/bad till at least early 70s.

DD trust are pretty much terrible, even as a whm/dnc your DPS will double theirs... always just go with supports.

Exping in LoZ has been really fast and efficient. Started on page 1 at 51~ and now I am on page 4 at just hit level 70, and that all just took a few days playing casually. Using Naji, Kahara, and Ayame and most stuff dies really quickly. I could probably forego Naji for Mayakov as well, which I might try.

As others have said I would go with the clubs as well.

They did to start with. Eventually SE added low level gear too.

Yeah leeching off CP or exp in gates zones 50+ would be 600-1000 per kill ringless. Can take turns capping merits or getting JA/skilling up a new job

You mean no more Aby lvling? Got any good camps/solo spots a friend could help level me?

I thought you had to be lvl 96+ to access adoulin areas.

Walk south in ceizak and move west a bit to sih gates. Upon entering there are aggroing chapuli and past them is a Mandy camp that links but doesn't aggro. Perfect low lvl for starters to get familiar and skills capped but still 600-1000+ Exp per kill in a chain for lvl 50+, plus some CP for the 99

All in all its a very short walk. If the are a Mage you can get fast exp stone I-ing umbrils in cirdas, like 20 spawns 10 seconds from enigmatic device including a room of just umbrils.

Thanks for this. Sorry Jeanpaul, I am no longer on Sylph or I would look you up for sure!

*Edit* Also is this exp constant or just while the exp/ect campaigns are active?

So, I have done a bit of partying here and boy is this slow. Dual wielding clubs is really slow and killing just takes forever. At 67 now and killing EP (54ish) mobs in Crawler's Nest is really slow.

I'll probably just ride my Coalition Imprimptaurs and get there in a month or so. :(

For the heck of it, I did geo and run basically up to 99 solo w/trusts. Some abby, exp papers, impriptaurs, but mostly trusts and GoV. I found having a secondary goal made it bearable. I did GoV zones for different crafting torques, some with my fellow, some to stockpile crafting materials, etc. I did geo most of the time with no weapon, just DD trusts and focused on spell spamming for skill. Need something to break the boring cycle.
