Campsitarus-- FFXI campsites and leveling spots! ^^

23rd August 2010: I am sorry to say, but I will no longer be updating Campsitarus. More information can be found here if you want, but long story short, thank you everybody for your support!

12th May 2011:  A Version Update has altered mob levels in many locations throughout Vana'diel, which are not reflected here. Use at your own risk.
General information and acknowledgements can be found here.
General information on party dynamics can be found here.

Standard camps:

Standard camps are the common sites that parties go to, whether due to the ease of mobs or the convenience of the location. However, because of this, there is also a high chance of competition from other parties.

Alternate camps:

Alternate camps are the off-beat locales that aren't visited often because other, newer campsites have rendered these ones obsolete, or the campsite isn't the easiest to get to, or has certain other requirements, or players just never caught onto them for some reason or another.

Either way, if you or your party is out for some {adventure}, or if everywhere else seems crowded, feel free to try some of these places. Because of their nature, there'll be little competition, if any.

Solo Pet camps:
The levels provided here are solo levels and are a little conservative to cater for melees. Adventurous mages that nuke an enemy to death can try out some of these camps earlier than the recommended level range.

While soloing off Beastmaster pets can be a very nice alternative to party seeking, remember that you will usually only have yourself to rely on. Bring some form of reraise, sneak, invisible, and a way to get home.

Sometimes, a BST mob may not actually be at the camp location, in which case you will have to find a way to kill the existing mobs until the BST spawns. Such camps are marked in blue.

Finally, be aware that other higher level players may very well accidentally (or intentionally!) come by and kill your Beastmaster.

Some points to note:
* When a BST spawns a new pet, the pet will be treated as behind the mob. That is to say, you can immediately pull the newly summoned pet immediately, with no fear of the Beastmaster linking.

* Pets do not aggro- only the Beastmaster will.

* Special thanks go to Salacia for his original work, and Lion heart's update.
