I am a lvl 67 RDM atm and was wondering if it is possible to solo these mobs with out having Ni: ? and for that matter it would be intersting to know what is the lowest lvl on any job that u can solo these mobs, and i am talking mostly orcs, yagudo and quadavs.

ehh prolly not..I mean you can go with just Ichi and ride Phalanx and Stoneskin and get any -PDT gear you can but 67 sounds a little early to me.

Only one way to find out.

You might, but the point of campaign is to make exp and AN while eating out your nose. And I'm not sure if that's possible if you intent to solo mobs with a lvl 67 RDM.

It would be difficult to solo campaign mobs at 67 but with rdm you do have a fairly good arsenal of spells at your disposal to help you stay alive.. the biggest thing would be running out of mp.... in this case i would almost suggest cause you are lower in lvl... go /dnc.. might help out a bit more if you run out of mp. One thing you have to consider is even if you do solo a mob, the likely hood of people not finding you fairly quickly anyway is low... so you wont have to solo for very long.

at 67 you could do imps, at least that's what is in bastok beast controlled zones. Imps i could solo at 65thf/dnc, even 65mnk/dnc. Rdm/dnc would be better off yet, with phalanx and SS and castable cures.

Thought this was gonna be a *** thread about ppl running off miles with campaign mobs to solo them, making 30 other people wait an extra 5mins for campaign to end.

I think quadavs are the easiest especially in rolanberry cause of the space. You could probably sleep nuke them or dot kite. I used to carby kite them when my smn was 62

I imagine a 67rdm/dnc could do just as well as a pld/dnc around that level. If so, stick to quad mages so you can aspir samba. It'll make things tons easier. I did a lot of cb on pld around that level.

Also you most likely won't be able to solo anything, since your dmg will be so low. There will be a good chance every other cb mob will die before you can kill yours if you straight melee it.

edit~ on a side note, you can get a lot of AN still if you can manage to stay alive.

Unless you pull it away I don't think you can solo melee it to death fully.

Of course that just creates another problem, you also risk dying with no one to raise you.

yeah, usually you'll beat on it for a long time, then everyone will swarm it once the other mobs are dead.

Beastman controlled zones are usually pretty empty. Crawler's Nest usually controlled and empty. Imps like to roam the hallways there as well, even when no quads are around.

rdm/blu is in no way better for campaign than /dnc, if you need more than a chevoit/patronus/jelly/gembu to stay alive then youre doing it wrong and getting less xp than you could by curing others!

I'd suggest a high eva gear set for mnk/dnc, so you're not having to spam waltz every time it's up. However a mnk friend of mine solo's campaign on mnk/nin with haste gear, maybe give that a shot =]
