Commentarus:
This is a very challenging camp in the sense that aggro can practically come from all directions, so be prepared with your Reraise Earring! That being said, at least coming back here is easy, just as long as you have the Li'Telor outpost activated.

One thing that you must be especially careful of are the Goblins themselves. The thing that makes this camp so difficult is that all the goblins here have a very large area which they roam, so be sure to pull your pet a considerable distance away from the master once you pull.

In addition, there are all sorts of other environmental concerns you have to be wary of- aggro from bats and links from the surrounding Leeches. To be mindful of both sight and sound aggro, and still rake in decent xp, is not exactly a walk in the park, to say the least.

Scholars might be rather annoyed soloing here, since they can't use their latest spell (Water II) against the Leeches, due to their innate Water resistance.

So why solo here? Simply put, there are 3-4 Goblin Traders within close proximity, and they're always there (unless someone's killing them).

Strong Melee jobs ( /NIN or /DNC ) can solo here as well, with somewhat more difficulty. Pets hit hard and fast, but as a DRK, spells like Drain really help out. ^^; Good luck.

On BLM, i noticed that there were 2 Goblin Trader's right around the outpost at H-9. The nice thing about this camp is that there are only 2 lesser gayla's that will spawn at night and aggro here. Plus the Gobbue Parasites shouldn't pose to much of a problem while pulling away from the BST.
