All depends on your skill level and when you hit a certain point, you'll need higher level mobs to skill up

skilled up quite a bit in sea casting threnodies on goldfish.

edit: skimmed over your post and didnt catch that you tried this already. just join an xp pt for worms if stones are a big issue. get plenty of TEs and skill ups in the pt then just hang out afterwards and skill up by yourself if you want.

Skilling up Singing/Wind/String on mobs? Don't bother.

Just spam Etudes. You'll get skill-ups, and you can do it without having to travel somewhere to find appropriate mobs.

According to the wiki, the higher level goldfish (Om'hpemde) range from 73-77 (the lower level ones are 68-72).
As of about a year ago, you can cap skills on DC mobs. From the wiki's Experience Points page, that should correspond to mobs 1-7 levels below you (at least for the relevant range). The highest level goldfish should be able to get your C rank singing/etc skills to what they'd be for 84 (274).

If you happened to pull a level 68 Ul'hpemde, then it would only skill you to 75.

Boulder Eater is a lvl 97-99 worm in Gustav Tunnel, Located I-7 on second map. Great way to skillup brd/whm safely and if you were wondering you just need a mob above lvl 92+ to cap skills at 99 now. At lvl 91 a mob becomes "Easy prey" to a 99 and wont cap your skills.

You can use Zvahl Fortalices to cap you to 82'ish.

If you use Windower/Spellcast, I have a couple of skillup scripts that should work well (may need a little tweaking to make them more suited for you).

Offensive Song Skillup (Threnody/Elegy/Lullaby)

Buff Song Skillup (Etudes all the way)

while probably not the -safest- method, i myself just went into abyssea, threw on some evasion and m.acc atmas, a skillup food, and then found a lone EM-T mob like bluffalos and then pulled it out of aggro. lullaby > threnody spam till it wakes up > lullaby > threnody spam till it wakes up > repeat. you couldnt do this with a really low skill though, as lullaby has to land or you could get hurt very fast D:
but with skill capped for 75 you should have enough skill to land lullaby

Step 1: Join exp/cruor/abyssea party on bard

Step 2: pull/spam songs on mobs

Would do it in a cruor party myself... pulling on bard will only help the party and also give you easy skill ups. Use 2x regen atma and deep devourer

I believe you didn't skill up well because they were much lower than you. I remember trying to catch up string on these back at 75ish and it slowed down around what was cap for level 65 brd (maybe less). I would start out with going to abyssea uleguerand as brd, set a bunch of regen atma, and spam threnody on the worms. This should be able to get you significantly better skill up rate than goldfish (even more with pitaru).

Fortalices are the best method to skillup to 82.

They should still be there. If destroyed, they have a lengthy respawn timer, haven't actually tested what that is since I'm afk lol. You may want to check again, or try the other 3 locations. ?

Yes. Thanks for this information. They worked nicely up to around 247. Any nice places to skill up past that number? Your help is very appreciated.

I went to Abyssea ~ Uleguerand Range, popped Deep Devourer, Mounted Champion, and some other regen atmas, pitaru food for skill up (Poultry?), and just spammed threadonies & lullaby for ~270~300(so far; should work to cap I think or close to it).
