I've found Fields of Valor to be very useful for me since my time is very sporadic, I log in for an hour, then log out, then log again and repeat. Parties have always been a chore and I'd rather leave them for missions.

So far Fields is great to level sub jobs!

I am currently trying my first attempt at a "solo" job, and Fields of Valor has made the experience great so far. The experience bonus is nice, but my favorite part is the buffs I receive from the training manual. Having regen, shell, protect, and reraise up always comes in handy.

As Colin stated, this system is not just for the solo artist. Set up a FoV with your party. A word of caution though, communication is the key. Try to pick a regime that focuses on prey you are currently killing in the party.

For example, around level 13 or so a party in Valkurm Dunes may start focusing on Snippers and possibly Damselflies. Guess what, there is a regime that requires you kill 5 flies and 3 snippers to get an extra 525 experience points!

Experience points parties in FFXI are most beneficial when experience points earned per hour is maximized. So with that in mind, you do not want your party trecking all over a zone to kill 1 or 2 odd mobs to get the experience bonus. With the downtime involved in running about, that may not be the most productive option. So talk it out, work together, and most of all; have fun.

See you in Vanadiel.

Have to say FoV is great, I took a 9 month break and came back at xmas time, since then I've taken 3 of my mules to level 20 for fishing all using FoV, each mule took me roughly 8 hours to take from level 1 to 20 all used FoV every chance they could and all were solo.

Also loving these posts, intresting to read for old players like me (6 years playing) and a sort of New Players Guide for any new players, I'll be pointing new players here for a read as I meet them because its some great advice that everybody should know!!

Just be sure to update the start area FoV locations after the april update!.
