54-60 Bhaflau Thickets

* Treasures of Aht Urhgan required.
* Near East access required.
* WHM recommended for 57-60 (against Spiders) for Erase.
* Supports 2 parties.

Target mobs:
Primary: Lesser Colibri
* Colibri
* Not Aggro
* Not Linking
* Weak to Piercing weapons
* Very Strong against Wind

Primary: Aht Urhgan Attercorp (57-60)
* Spider
* Not Aggro
* Links by Sound
* Weak against Ice

Chances are, the camp right outside Al Zahbi might be taken by the occasional high-level player soloing, so the "main" camp here would be the ??? further up north where the Plague Chigoe pops for the Caedarva Mire map quest. For obvious reasons, if somebody in the party has the quest activated, but not completed, do not click on the ???.

Lesser Colibris take up the 54-58 levels, before slowly upgrading to the Spiders. One thing to note with a party here is that you'd definitely want the tank to be on the higher end of the level range, since Lesser Colibri have a move called Snatch Morsel, which steals one's food effects, so your tank will have to go without food.

Later on, as you level up more and more in levels, you can upgrade to taking on the Aht Urhgan Attercorps that litter the same area. Take care though, as the Attercorps do link. They have all the regular moves as their mainland counterparts, including Spider Web, which overwrites Haste (hence, you wiould like a WHM to Erase the Slow effect before reapplying Haste), although it doesn't seem to last as long as the Spider Web effects on the mainland. At this point, the Lesser Colibris can be used to fill in a chain.

The camp near the Plague Chigoe ??? has just enough spiders for a party with decent speed to always have one to pull ^^ I'd just recommend at least one sleeper, because when you don't camp inside the bushes (what we did), every once in a while a spider pops right inside the camp or gets into linking range...
With a 58-60 party the exp were quite ok, 3.5-4k/hour with a non-burn setup. But as soon as someone hits 61 they drop rapidly, below 100 even with chains ^^;
