Velocidrome is probably the fastest one you can do for EXP since the starter LS (and probably most other weapons) can basiclly finish it off under a minute most of the time, but you may want to run Yian Kut Ku for practice or materials for later. Remember you can always do some of the Hunter's Quests if you get sick of these.
