Notes

Event runs are most optimally done on May 16-31, during the Adventurer Appreciation Campaign. Recommended items: Cipher Qultada, Cipher Fablinix, Cipher Koru-Moru, Vana'Clock, Echad Ring, Caliber Ring. If using Destrier Beret, do as much running-around as possible prior to level 31.
Avoid Lower Jeuno and Windurst Walls unless on a LV1 job to avoid cutscenes.
5000 accolades are required to summon Unity trust. Spamming a limited-time challenge (Gain EXP, Physical Damage Kills, Vanquish Vermin, etc.) will unlock it quickly.

Shadow Lord begins magical immunity at 50% HP. After taking another 13% or 1000 HP damage, or after waiting 5 minutes, he will switch from his current phase. Damage from a heavy WS does not count towards the next phase; for example, if Semih unleashes a massive Sidewinder at 51% and brings him down to 42%, he will switch to physical immunity at 29%, not 37%. WAR should save TP for a Berserk/Aggressor/Warcry Penta Thrust specifically for 51%. (After that it won't matter.)

  • 57RDM: The fight requires Valaineral, 1-2 healers, and 1-2 DPS. Recommend Mihli and Flaviria, and either Kupipi or Halver in 4th. You must NEARLY CAP elemental skill to avoid Shadow Lord resists -- getting through magical immunity before your trusts run out of MP is pivotal. Blizzard II spam is fine. On phase 2, keep yourself and DPS alive at all costs. Fight will take 4-5 minutes.
  • 58WAR: The fight requires Valaineral, Apururu, Joachim, and either Adelheid or another healer. Apururu is absolutely essential for regain/Nott heals, and Joachim's Ballad/Paeon give just enough sustainability for everyone to keep casting cures. If you sub /WHM you can help too! During physical immunity, stay WELL out of range from Giga Slash, to avoid wasting cures on yourself, but come back in just before Ballad wears. If everyone's HP is high, Adelheid will OCCASIONALLY use helix spells, but it's not reliable. Fight will take 12-17 minutes.

Therefore the tradeoff for going WAR is 7-12 minutes extra for Shadow Lord, no use of Flaviria while grinding, and about 13 minutes more for level 58. On the other hand, RDM requires purchasing spells (3 minutes) and spamming Stone throughout the entire leveling process. The math suggests to me that WAR will ultimately be faster, but without testing RDM grinding rates, I cannot say definitively.

Windurst appears to be about 30 minutes slower than San d'Oria. Windy is a huge city, and the missions require a great deal of dungeon trawling and backtracking, to say nothing of having to climb Heavens' Tower 6 times.

Testing needed:

  • Optimal starting time, to maximize 4-hour Gain EXP window.
