I got lucky today :D I'm a level 56 BLU

I am going with a CHR (+20) build to learn spells. I went to Oldton Movalpolus as a BLU/WHM. I didn't learn Flying Hip Press with my CHR gear off on the first Bugbear. I swiched to it and learned it on the following one.

Next, I went to Tavzania Safehold to learn Frightful Roar. I switched to BLU/NIN . On the way, I saw a RDM farming feathers. He let me join, and I learned it on the first sighting with full CHR gear :D

I hooked up with another BLU who I asked if he wanted to join me. He learned Frightful Roar on the first mob :/ He has a normal BLU/NIN build with Rajas ring. We fought 2 more and no witnessing of the move. 3rd mob, I learned it :D

Next we went to Riverne Site B. I hooked up with a friend who's LS was farming feathers. RDM/WHM made it so easy >.>; We got Jettaru 1 after the other after farming for 1 hour :p

I'm not a believer in the CHR+ helps learning spells theory and never will be a believer.

Anyway I went to Oldton Movalpolos today as BLU54/RDM27 went to the first 2 Bugbears in the area. Pulled 1st, it use Earth Shock 3 times and then I killed it. 2nd Bugbear I left on 4%HP then turned and had some fun by running away and making it catch up (I was kinda bored). It the decided it doesn't like chasing me and used Flying Hip Press and took itself to 1%HP (if you use FHP does it hurt you aswell?) used Mandibular Bite and learnt it 1/1 (1/2 if you count 2 mobs or 1 sighting as your counting method).

Also learnt Magic Fruit, was fed up of Opos and Overgrown Rose aggro so I thought "right, last one" ... last? little blighter linked. Got Magic Fruit from the link, good monkey ^^

Cool, 100 posts! This is the best thread I've ever started, ^^.

{Congratulations!}x3. Man, all you guys are learning quick as lightning these days (lol, remember the old days when we all were lower levels, :P, learning took forever).

Anyway, what time would it be Death? I'll be on from around 6pm-til whenever EST. I can get on by 5:30pm EST if need be. I'll just have to come straight home and log in right away. I already have my codex as well. I'll be on the forums checking until I get off work 4:20pm EST. If I don't hear anything prior, send me a /tell in-game. If I don't hear anything, I'll probably be out spell hunting (if I get bored), or most likely xping (I HAVE to get out of this brigandine). I think that is such an ugly piece of armor to wear, ;;. Level 57 here I come!

Reached L.13 last night and started hunting for Healing Breeze. I got it in about two hours. Had a streak of bad luck which gifted me 2 deaths. I got aggro from a Earth Elemental which two-shoted me. I honestly thought the elemental was the Yag's pet since they were standing next to each other. Other death was aggro from a Goblin while fighting a Dhamel. Since the Dhamels were still T to me, I was charming the local Crawlers to do my dirty work. They were the only workable mobs that I can charm that had a snowball's chance against the Dhamels. Crawlers were either Equal or DC. Let the Dhamel kill the Crawler and the mob is around 15-20% life. My only restriction was finding a Crawler to charm. I think I only found 4 spawn points for it which were relatively close to the Dhamels. Azure Lore didn't do anything.

Yes, Perim, I only count the amount of times that I have "seen" the move, and learned or not learned. If the mob never uses the move, I don't say I'm 0/1, because, I never had a chance to learn in the first place. I count the times I "did" have a "chance" to learn, and did or didn't.

{Congratulations!} Netglen. Though it was a rough road, Healing Breeze owns, :P

Cool, I know Grawl, /wave, ^^.

I partied with him quite a bit when I took a break from my Blu to get some merits. Not to mention some things here and there from before (all just by chance, since we have no common LSs or anything).

I understand, if I get the chance, I get the chance, if I don't, I don't, it's cool. As long as I have this Formor Codex, I'll always have that chance, ^^.

Does Healing Breeze scale up as you go up in level? What's the maximum it can heal?

Yes it does, but, I don't know the cap. Right now, when I'm on Blu/Nin (I really don't feel like listing all my equips though, ;;), and don't swap into full MND gear, I can heal for 123 all around (though, not all equips, that's with Rose Wand +1 in off-hand, and Holy Phial macroed in as well). It can be much higher I know. That's how it's commonly used by me though.

When I'm in as a DD, not the main healer.

Sandspin and Blind stack, since it gives ACC Down status and not Blind status, as for slow or filamented hold being stronger, not sure.

Today 56 BLU/NIN with my CHR gear again :3

Eyes on Me 1/1 in Xarcabard (This spell hurts a lot. Did 300 damage to me)
Ice Break 0/0 in Beaudicine Glacier (._. do they even do the move?)
Hecatomb Wave 1/2 in Xarcabard (I fought the demons near the Ulegreund Range zone)
Dimensional Death 1/4 in Fei'Yin (Fought the first set of Fomors, pretty easy spell to learn since they use the move a lot).

Bad Breath 1/12 in Rolanberry fields (I changed to a partial MND gear at this point, it was hard to get the spell but there are a lot of very easy to kill Ochu. Nevertheless, these things hit me for 40-60 with no food and with Cocoon off)

Stinking Gas 1/1 in Garlaige Citadel (I saw a group doing Explosures for Genkai 1. I joined them and head butted a Self-Destruct n.n. They got the drop immediately, I think they were trying for past hour. We went to kill the nearby Doomed and got the spell just at 1% health >.< They almost killed it too fast)

Hmmm, Eyes on Me hits that hard? I guess I'll go to Rougemont Pass to get mine (That's what I had planned on doing anyway though). Although, I don't know, I still may try one of the northlands, *shrugs*.

{Congratulations!} Everyone.

I didn't get to play as much as I would've liked this weekend, so, not much to report/update. I'm currently 0/5 on Magic Fruit, and I logged out right where I'm farming. I hope Light of Penance & Flying Hip Press go smoothly for me. I'm also thinking of farming the lvl 60 spells as well.

Level 60 spells are not that bad.

I would suggest the following:

Death Scissors and Maelstrom: Get them from Labyrinth of Onzozo. There are a ton of these mobs there. Get high level help as they will be EM+ to you.

Dimensional Death: Get this spell solo, I think your level can, from Fei'Yin.

For myself this past weekend 59-61

I got help on these spells with 2 level 75 friends:
Death Scissors: Got it at Attowha Chasm 1/2
Dimensional Death: Easily in Fei'Yin 1/2
1000 Needles: 1/4 on Sabotender Bailorina in Quicksand Caves
Maelstrom: moderately difficult to get 1/6 on Labyrinth of Onzozo Mantas
Cold Wave: harder to get 1/6 on Snolls in Ulegrand Range
Filamented Hold: Once again, a bit tougher 1/8 in Aydenna Subteranean (sp?)

I am dreading on how to get Body Slam, Radiant Breath, Spinal Cleeve, etc. :/

Oh yeah, another good spell hunting trip for me, ^^......

Magic Fruit - As I said, I logged out here, so, I just picked up where I left off. What do you know, appearing right in front of me, was an Opo-Opo, ^^. Didn't learn, -_-, but, I did learn on the next one right after, ^^. So, off to a good start so far. I'm in the jungles already, so, no need to leave. I waltz on over to Yhoater while I'm out here.....

Light of Penance - After arriving, I ran in the direction of the Temple. Well, I checked a few Tonberries on my way there, and they didn't seem like they'd be that bad. So, instead of going all the way to the temple, I decided to mess around with some in these tunnels I kept running through. Woot, in and out deal, 1/1. I was like, uhhhhh, okay, thanks, ^^. It's been about 25min since I've been on the game now. What should I do?....

Flying Hip Press - Back in Al Zhabi now, I'm shouting for Teleport-Dem. I see a whm actually casting it while I'm shouting it, and he was alone. He cancels the casting with a /heal, sends me an invite, and off we go. I'm very UNFAMILIAR with Olton/Newton Movalpolos. I don't know where anything is. Matter of fact, I've only been here twice. Once when it was first added in the update, just to see what it was like a little bit, and the other was for the COP missions. So, I don't know where the Bugbears are at all. I'm running around and around. I finally run into someone, so, I ask for help on where to find them (which direction and such). She tells me to go North, which is kinda the direction I had just come from, but, I think meh, maybe I just over looked them (kinda hard to over look a Bugbear I think though). Turns out, it was completely the wrong direction (that really wasn't nice). I came back to where she was, and kept going passed her in the direction I "was" going the first time. What do you know, a Bugbear was only 3-4 seconds away from me the whole time, ;;. Anyway, I pull, I fight, I kill, I learn, I rejoice, I warp, ^^.

So far so good eh? Should I stop while I'm ahead? Hmmmm....

Death Scissors - Al Zhabi again, /sh Teleport-Mea time. I see a whm I know, and she Teles me. I'm in the maze now, and there's plenty plenty scorpions here. This was great. I didn't know that scorpions had so many moves though, yeesh. I was like, wow! No problems here, nothing much to tell. Go there, learn it, and be on your way....

Dimensional Death - Okay, ready to do what you wish you could do during ALL spell hunting runs. This and Venom Shell, has had to be my favorite spells to farm thus far (maybe except for the excitement of farming Capped zone spells, I had a blast doing those too). The reason I liked farming Dimensional Death and Venom Shell, was because, you didn't have to use the "Weak weapon to help the mob build TP" method. No, against these, you can just fight/beat them like they stole something. I don't mean spam them with Blu spells (You'll kill them too fast if you do, :P), but, a few spells here and there wouldn't hurt, but, I meant being able to just use your primary weapon. The reason, is because, (in my case) they will ALWAYS use Dimensional Death. Someone said it in another forum as well, but, I think this is THE only TP move the ever use/have. So, needless to say, this trip was cut short quickly. Every fight is a chance to learn.

Eyes On Me - Out of all the hunts today, next to the Tonberries, this one had to be the most dangerous.......lol, YEAH RIGHT, I'M A BLU, :P. Anyway, these do try everything they have to kill you, but, it doesn't help. Just wait for the move. There's plenty eyes around the glacier. More so towards/around the Xarcabard zoning area (just the REGION near it, not right exactly at it). Shouldn't be too much trouble. They used the move pretty frequent, it's just, they have a lot of moves to use though, so, it's not exactly always going to be quick fights (If you're like me, I wait until every pull/enemy uses the desired move before I kill it 95% of the time).

Well, that was my adventure yesterday. I'm currently hunting Bad Breath (0/3) and Maelstrom (0/1). That hunting trip took about 3hrs. (that's including travel time). Take the travel time away, and it was more like 1.5 hrs. or so. I had a great time, and will update once I gain some more levels (The level 62 spells are approaching, ;;). I'm not looking forward to farming those at all. As I've not heard good things from those farming trips yet, /sigh.

Oh, almost forgot...

Blu owns, :P

Whoa! {Congratulations!}. I love to read about Blus still "actually" learning, ^^. Hope isn't all lost.

Cool, I just have a couple questions. How many boat rides did you have to take? I've ridden a few times, but, have never seen an Imp spawn yet (I know they do though). How hard was the fight?

Took a little break from BLU so I can unlock and level NIN. So far I've gotten to L.12. I'm hoping to get a few levels so I can change back to L.23 BLU.

Must...learn...every....mob ability. I wish they add Frog Drop to the game. And dinner forks.

You do not have to live through a fight to learn an ability...
I just learned Queezyshroom from a Forest Fungar in West Ronfaure and died before killing it..
After HPingthe spell was in my inventory...
I do not belive that killing an enemy quickly has anything to do with the success rate of learning the spell..
The learning takes place at the same time the particular mob uses the skill..

You actually learn the spell the moment it dies. The message will appear before anything like exp gained and who got the final blow. If you kill each other at the same time (which is what it sounds like you did) you were, technically, alive when it died.

It was specifically stated by SE that you can not learn a spell if you are dead when the monster dies (should this be proven wrong SE needs to sack their translator).

Edit: 1/2 Death Scissors
1/2 Dimensional Death
0/3 Bad Breath

BLU ftw!

MrGalak, hmmm, that seems kinda hard to swallow. I'm not saying you're lying, but, I can't come to believe that just now. I'd have to see/hear more proof before believing that one.

Also, no big story here for these two. I learned Bad Breath and Maelstrom as well when I logged on Sat. Went 1/1 on each that morning (I was 0/3 on Bad Breath and 0/1 on Maelstrom the previous log in).

Feather Tickle - This one, I don't have a count of. I learned it during an xp party in Bhaflau Thickets. Although, I do think I learned it within the first 10 pulls after I gained level 58. I "think" that you can't learn it at lvl 57. I say that, because, I've been xping on Colibris for a while now, so, just an observation I made for myself.

Good luck, keep up the good work everyone, ^^.

Well, for the people who do use my thread to help, I'm letting you guys know, I'm taking another break from Blu soon.

With the new update, there's lots of things I need to merit for once again. I want ALL the new Rdm spells, DEFINITELY have to get Ninja Tools Expertise, Ninja ability "Sange", probably going to cap spell interruption rate, then, build up another 10 merits, to have waiting for my Blu or my Drg when they reach level 75. So, it'll be a while, but, when I return, I'll revive my thread if no one else keeps it going.

See you when I see you, and good luck to everyone. Maybe they'll come out with the category 2 merit stuff before I return, ^^.

Well, due to the severe difficulty of being able to complete Blu AF all the way, I may just keep on leveling, and not worry about completing AF. I'll do it between meritting sessions I suppose. /Sigh, first time I've felt down about Blu......ever.

Good luck to all.

This thread has laid low long enough.

BUMP!!!!

Every Blue Mage has a nemesis spell, I mean EVERY Blue Mage. I had done extremely well with learning spells before, but this one really got on my nerves. The spell stinks and the monster is named after a habbit I wish didn't exist.

Bad Breath! - Marlboro ciggies >,<(Morbol)

(>^)-~ ... Smoking kills damn it! (>X)-~

7-8 hours of farming Ochu in Rolanberry fields and I finally learnt Bad Breath. I was begining to think the "Increases learning rate" was glitch to be "reduces learning rate to near enough 0". I spent 6 hours yesturday trying to learn it got annoyed and logged off for bed. Came back in the morning still no luck. Finally got it after about 5 more Ochu today (Time being 23:54 >.>).

Learnt Feather Tickle while in a party killing Lesser Colibri by the Leypoint.

Learnt 1000 Needles after about 3 hours.

Learnt Eyes on Me after about 5 monsters.

0/1 on Maelstrom so far camping that Kraken was a pain so I'm off to buy a fishing rod >.>

Man, thanks for your revival Perim, ^^.

Sorry to hear about that Deathpain, ;;. I was sure you'd find a way or something.

Well, I'm here to say some good news actually. Yesterday, I went to party on my Blu (havn't in such a long time, been meritting again). I managed to get about 39k xp in Wajaom Woodlands, carrying me from lvl 59-61 (I was like, 15k TNL to 60 at the start of the party). It was great! I imagine I could've gone farther if I wanted, but, that morning, me and a friend went duoing, to try farm Soulflayers. After about 45min of farming, we managed to get a cape to drop. Hoping for another drop, so we both would have all the silk we needed, we farmed for about two more hours, but, had no luck. We did end up getting 3 staves to drop though, that I'm hoping my friend can successfully desynth for me for some good gil (bloodwood lumber)

After I xping for hours on end, waiting for my friend to log on that I knew had clothcrafting skills, I sent him a /tell. He said to give him a minute, and he'd attempt the desynth for me. My partner that had helped me, got fustrated with the drop rate on these, and bought at least one of his silks yesterday for 800k (got pissed when he saw the new update for today, ;;). Anyway, my good friend Ergoth (Whm on Phoenix server, lvl 72+3 (I think +3) Clothcrafter) told me to meet him in Windy for the attempt. I had full confidence in him (before he told me he was lvl 72 cloth, I "thought" he was 100, :P). As he begins, I'm cheering him on. OMG! He HQed the desynth for me, ^^. His fee was going to be, "if" he got a HQ, he'd give me two, and take the third. Well, he said, since the drop is so rare, he'd wave the fee for me. I was like, whoa, thanks! Instead of selling the third one for some GOOD gil, I gave it to my friend who helped me farm it (Rikanya). Now, Ergoth has helped two more Blus be able to fully complete Blu AF now, with the most expensive item out of the way.

If you read this, thanks again (for the millionth time) Ergoth!

Don't give up hope Death, ;;. Find you a good friend, and try duo/trio those mobs, if it turns out, that the synthesis recipe is still just as rough.

Now, I'm level 61. Man, I don't know about others, but, MBing is back again, ^^ (it fell off a bit, when xping on puks, because, MBing just wasn't doing too well). Now, I'm MBing my gravitation SCs with Eyes on Me, and it's doing around 382dmg or so. I'm also thinking, AF head is having something to do with that. Though I have my silks now, I still don't have full AF yet. Just the weapon, feet, and head like most others. I'm working on getting the rest soon.

Keep up the good work everyone, Blu owns!

I'll be back to learning spells soon enough. Currently working on meritting all the Rdm spells still, and now, upgrading my new job trait Ninja Tools Expertise, ^^.

Currently level 47 BLU, and having a hell of a time getting Self-Destruct. I haven't had this much trouble with a spell since the early levels (Cocoon, anyone?)...

Currently I kill Feu Follets in Gusgen mines on the bottom level. They are easy enough to kill, but are still strong enough so feeding them TP isn't a chore. With Barfira up, even a full HP Self-Destruct won't kill me, so its nice and safe. Now...I have been hit with Self-Destruct at least 30 times, and still nothing. I keep checking my list in case I get nailed by the list glitch (happened to me on Chaotic Eye, hunted it for a few hours one day without learning it, logged out - logged back in next day and in my mog house I check my list and there it was), but no luck there either.

Anyone else have a suggested place for learning this?

I don't know what to tell you. I farmed my Self-Destruct there as well. Ran back and forth between two rooms killing Spunkies. There were a total of four spawn points. At the rate I was killing them, one was always up at all times.

Spunkies are lower level as well.

Well I wanted to start by saying that in my experience the higher the level of the monster from which ur trying to learn the better chance that u have to learn. NOT fact(that i know of at least) just what i have observered. For example, I learned both frightful roar and coldwave in Ulg. Range first time used as mid 40 blu. Pinecone bomb 1st time used from treeants in Lufaise meadows as 36 blu. I always like to go for mobs much higher lvl them me if I can help it just from this observation and it seems to save me time in the long run. I know some people have trouble with this luxury. Me, i have a close friend who is lvling blu also and he tanks them naked(if mob wasnt hitting him) while i wait/cure/feed tp if i can until I learn it then we switch. Obviously we both have high lvl jobs. In any case here is where I obtained these spells upto lvl 64. By default learn is within 10 uses unless stated otherwise. Also all used the buddy method with higher lvl mobs. I also included ones Ive notice people having problems with so maybe this post might help someone

lvl 8 Metalic body Gustav Tunnel 1/20ish(still a pain, crabs deeper in)
lvl 16 healing breeze East Altep desert lvl 18 blastbomb Miserax coast (Warchaines closest to Qufim port)
lvl 34 deathray Psoxja (1000 eyes down hole in uncapped zone)
lvl 36 pinecone bomb Lufaise meadows (Leshys at the upper left of zone)
lvl 44 stinking gas Garaige citadal (2 of them downstairs past weapons)
lvl 48 Jetterra Riv.site B 1/15 (Had to duo them, had no choice)
lvl 48 refueling Mount. Z (Trio w/ 75 nin,friend stunned)
lvl 50 ice break Feiyn 1/12 (collosses, harder ones down stairs)
lvl 50 Frightful roar Ulg. range (He went 73 bst and used raptor pets)
lvl 54 radiant breath Riv.site B 1/25 (Trio w/ 3 blus)
lvl 61 Maelstorm Sea serpant grotto(The devil mantas behind gold)
lvl 62 Mememto mori Attowa chasm 1/20+(as 73 bst,pain, only pop at night)
lvl 63 Frentic rip Caed, mire1/1 (many Heretic imps, horn broke w/ rampage)
lvl 63 Spinal cleave Arrop. reef1/1 (many Qutrub near the staging point there, took my friend as 75 drk and a 75 pld and me curing as blu/whm. Weapon easy to break, however cleave is rarely used even when he is in hand to hand)
lvl 64 Voracious trunk Waj woodlands (Got lucky and hoped in merit party and learned it 1/2 =)

1/1 Frenetic Rip: Solo'd it on the boat to Nashmau, they only spawn at night.

0/5 Spinal Cleave: Took about 4 hours to see it 5 times. Has anyone confirmed learning spells in Besieged? I just don't see me getting a lot of these conditional spells without learning in Besieged, it's hard getting people to fight level 75+ mobs to learn a spell that they rarely use.

1) "I" don't believe in the Chr rumor.

2) There is no limit to how many spells you can learn at any given time.

I have a question though. For those that have soloed Frenetic Rip on the boat to Nashmau, how did you break horn? I have yet to attempt to learn moves from mobs that need their weapons broken, so, I have no clue yet. Just wondering so I can attempt to do this myself. Also, how hard was the fight?

Just learnt Frenetic Rip in Caedarva Mire.

Duoing with another BLU we managed to break the horn with Sneak Attack (critical hits will break the horn, you dont have to time it to when they use a Tantra move or with a Weapon Skill). You do however (as far as I know) have to be behind the mob (I dont mean just when doing it with Sneak Attack). Managed to learn Frenetic Rip 1/1.

Also learnt Maelstrom on the ferry on the way to Nashmau to learn Frenetic Rip. Again 1/1 ^^.

While soloing on the ferry I pulled an Apkallu through the door to the inside and learnt Yawn 1/1 ^^ makes a nice change of pace from the 10+hours total to get bad breath and 1000 needles.

Cool, I have maxed Crit. Hit Rate merits. I can break the horn from in front with critical attacks? Is that what you're saying, or, do I have to be behind the imp to break it?

From the sound of things, it seems, riding the ferry at night a few times, sounds like a great idea. Can grab a couple spells while I'm at it.

It should be possible to break the horn from infront. When I duoed with the other BLU the horn of an imp broke but was reformed before we could give the imp the TP for Frenetic Rip (sleepga II is a pain ><). When we checked the log the only thing we could see that might have broken the horn was that the other BLU had scored a critical hit on the imp (from infront).

I was /THF and what I tried to do is Sleep >> SA Mandibular Bite/Death Scissors. I fought two using that method, and a horn didn't break until I scored a normal crit on the second one lol. So just a normal critical hit broke the horn. He used the ability almost immediately, and I went 1/1.
