@chocobo allows you to call a chocobo in areas that are meant for chocobo riding. This command will not work in Cities, Dungeons, or Beastman Areas. Abuse of this command will cause your character to warp and your name to be called out publicly in a system message as a cheater, thanks to the scripting mind of Sonicblazer.

Basically don’t use the chocobo command when you have aggro on a monster.

@beach is considered to be the LS Hangout, it puts you at the beach in Bibiki Bay (Purgonorgo Isle). There are custom NPCs here.

The @Travel command can be used to get to any City area in game (with the exception of Tavnazian Safehold, and areas from the Past). To use @travel type @travel and the name of a city auto translated. For example @travel <Lower Jeuno>.

You can use @where to tell you your current position, this is useful when you are asking for GM assistance or intervention, as well as reporting bugs.

@xpcamp Warps

@xpcamp 10

Valkurm Dunes : 10-20   (Start with FoV page 1 and move towards the area near the secret beach entrance.

You will find plenty of rabbits and Lizards here with little to no agro threats. At ~Lv 24, move to

FoV page 3 and take up your camp at the Oasis)

@xpcamp 14

Maze of Shakhrami : This is an Alternative Camp then xping in the dunes. You should be good here from lvl 14-25~

@xpcamp 24

Qufim Island : 24-40  (Start on FoV page 3, and move your camp to H-5. This is the pass in between the

bluffs and the tower. This page is good til ~Lv37, but depending on the party size and how fast you are killing,

you can jump to page 5. For this page, you will camp the great G-6 area. This will take you to 40


@xpcamp 26

Yuhtunga Jungle 26-28

@xpcamp 28

Yhoator Jungle == 28-30

@xpcamp 36

Crawler’s Nest : 36-58  (Your first introduction to GoV ! You may need a party member or two at level 40, but it will

soon be much   easier. The camp is perfect as in it’s near the entrance, and the targets are crawlers and bees)

@xpcamp 40

Garlaige Citadel: 40-50  (Just like above, at 40 you may need to have a couple party members with you. This is a roaming camp

from the entrance to the first Banishing Gate. Your targets are bats and beetles)


@xpcamp 41

Rolanberry Fields : 40-49    Grab FoV page 5  and make your way to G-11 > H-12 area. Once you have been here awhile,

you will figure out a figure 8 style route you will need to run to have constant mobs and not be waiting on respawn timers)

@xpcamp 42

Gustav Tunnel: 42-50  (Sometimes, the above camps are crowded and you need your alone time! This is a great alternative.

You will need to have a good solo job, since most of your targets agro and link. Said targets are goblins and lizards)


@xpcamp 48

Eastern Altepa Desert : 48-59   The page itself (page 5) can get a little lengthy since there are a total of 9 mobs to kill,

it goes rather fast once you develop the right route around the Outpost area to run. The gobs blow themselves up,

and when soloing, offer massive EXP)

@xpcamp 50

The Boyahda Tree : This camp is here for now, Not sure on the level of party. I added this for a quicker access to skill ups on crabs,

And to get to Fafnir faster.

@xpcamp 52

Western Altepa Desert: 52-60   (The page to grab here is page 3 (11 mobs, WTF!). When soloing, the beetles give massive amounts of  EXP and goes rather fast. This camp is located in the H-8 > H-7 area)

@xpcamp 54

Wajaom Woodlands: 54-62   (-261 -15 78 234)(There is no page bonus for this camp, but the EXP is amazing and you can reach chains as high as 80 if you camp near G-8. With that being said, the target is Colibri and you will need to have a good piercing damage job (WAR with a polearm,

SAM with a polearm, RNG but may be hard to solo, or a DRG).


@xpcamp 60

Ro’Maeve: 60-75   Your page is page 1 (yielding 2600 EXP p/page), and you run the entire map in a circle. Magic users beware!

Everything in this zone magic agroes from very far and even through walls)

@xpcamp 62

Cape Teriggan: 60-75   one of the best solo camps, and a great place to level up your skills! Most mages solo here since it is totally magic friendly. Your target is page 1, so be prepared for some “petrified” moments. Your camp will be around the Outpost)

@xpcamp 64

Kuftal Tunnel: 60-75  (This is one of the least used GoV camps due to the fact there is a big ass dragon roaming the area you set up shop. Page 1 is your target, and it’s best to camp near the sandfalls (J-9 area). This is a great duo camp!


@xpcamp 66

Ifrit’s Cauldron: 60-75   get from 60-75 and also merit. Your page will be #2, and the mobs per page and page yields makes this currently the best camp.

@xpcamp 68

Ranguemont Pass: 65-75   Page 6 is your target, and it’s near the Beaucidine Glacier zone. This camp is awesome and yields amazing EXP after just a half an hour or so of killing, but is very dangerous. Also a good way to get to Jormy.

@meritcamp – Birds, Puks, Puddings

Setup Guide

Hokutens FFXI Installation Guide

If you follow this installation guide and do not miss any steps you should not have any issues playing. Make sure to follow step by step.

Installing and updating FFXI

Download and install the installation files located at

Make sure you download all 4 files. Then run the first one which is the setup. 
When the setup is running to install FFXI, Make sure you check that you want to install PoL, FFXI, Rize of zilart, Chains, Treasures, and 

Once the Install is finished

Run PlayOnline and let it update.

  • After the update for POL is done and restarted it will ask you if you’re a New User or Existing User.
  • Choose Existing User using 1234567 as username/pass/account id etc.
  • Exit PlayOnline

Prepare FFXI by downloading the patch files located here

  • Once you download the patch files, Create a new folder on your Desktop and extract the patch files to the new folder.
Once the files are extracted to the new folder you created on your desktop, copy them all and go to: (the next step below)
  • C:\Program Files (x86)\PlayOnline\SquareEnix\FINAL FANTASY XI\
When you navigated to the FFXI folder, Click on a blank space and paste the patch files. You should get a message to 
"Replace all files or overwrite them. Do This. Make sure you are replacing the files not the patch folder.

Repair FFXI Files

  • Run PlayOnline. On the left side of the screen click Check Files
  • If you get a separate popup window that says it’s launching the FFXI installer or asks for install discs you can just close it.
On the "Check Files" screen where it says "PlayOnlineViewer" click the two arrows (drop down box) and change it to "Final Fantasy XI". 
The "version" should be "UNKNOWN" *Note* if your not getting the "Unknown" version then you did something above wrong!
  • Click on the Check Files button.
  • PlayOnline will then check all the FINAL FANTASY XI files (usually takes about 15-20 minutes) and prompt you on what to do because it found errors.
  • You should then choose to fix the errors.
  • PlayOnline will then automatically start checking and repairing the files. This takes around 5-7hrs.

Post update (repair)

  • Once you’re done checking and repairing the files, (It may still say that the files did not fix)
navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\PlayOnline\SquareEnix\PlayOnlineViewer
  • Right-click the “data folder” and click copy
  • Navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\PlayOnline\SquareEnix\FINAL FANTASY XI, right click an empty space in the folder and click paste. You should now have the “data” folder inside your /FINAL FANTASY XI/ folder.
