Results since getting AF Gloves at 56 (note: I learned Feather Barrier at 55 because I was bored, and was 1/11 on it).

Flying Hip Press: 1/1
Light of Pennance: 1/8
Magic Fruit: 1/1
Death Scissors: 1/2
Dimensional Death: 1/1
Bad Breath: 1/2
Eyes On Me: 1/1
Maelstrom: 1/2
1000 Needles: 1/6
Frypan: 1/2
Hydro Shot: 1/4
Infrasonics: 1/3

These results are, for me anyway, much better than before AF Gloves. You can see from this list that I am working on the spells I can get solo before I try to drum up help for the harder ones (I am currently level 60).

Nice, {Congratulations!} Deathpain. I've been off line for a LONG time now, ;; (well, long for me anyways). I'm in the process of moving and all, so, can't say exactly when I'll get to be back on full force again, ;;.

I'll be sure to drop you a /tell when I am though, ^^.

Deathpain, hopefully, I'll get a level or two within the next couple of days (hopefully), when's your next spell hunting session? What spells you going for?

I have a lot to catch up on now, since my moving delay.

Big update here, My linkshell started farming sea and i came BLU mage to it.

Temporal shift- 1/1 got this while waiting for people to come
Reactor cool- 1/6 (AF gloves) This one was bad for some reason
Vertical cleave- 1/1 looks pretty cool when a flower uses it
Disseverment- Yes the best tp burn spell BLU can get is mine^^ 1/1 but the dagger aerns did not like using it, fought 9+ without one disseverment.
Acintic burst- 1/20+ They spam it... must be bad luck i guess
Cannonball- 1/1 in halvung they spam this to. (Record 70BLU SACA 1302 on sheep in antlions clothes ENM)

Didnt get to fight any phaubo for plasma charge, dont have firespit either but ill get that in merit parties. But yeah nicest if you need spells ill be glad to come help

872 right off the bat, nice, ^^. I'm mostly doing dmg through CA Frenetic Rip. It's usually getting me 500-800dmg these days, ^^.

BTW, where in TOAU do you xp around 66-72 or so? I'm still learning all the xp camps for the new zones. I know camps for 53-66, and then the 73-75 TP burn OMG CRAZY XP camps, lol.

Level 66 now, I'll be 67 soon, and might go spell hunting again. Also, at lvl 67, I'll be switching back to Drg as well, to level it to 67. Then, camp the mess out of OSE until he gives me my Assault Jerkin, ^^.

After that, I think I'm going to complete my spell list, ^^. Still thinking about it.

hi! hoping to get a few words of advice...

my blu is only 7 and my blue magic skill is about half of what it should be. i've solo'd to this point mostly on easy prey or decent challenge. learning spells, however, has completely frustrated me.

i have no idea when i learned foot kick, as it didn't show in the log (but i was at least around 1/8 when i noticed it in my spell list). i got pollen at around 1/20. those are the only spells i've learned.

i'm at about 0/10 on cocoon (all decent challenge crawlers), 0/7 on metallic body (easy prey crabs).

i had hoped that blu could be that job i treat as the occasional fun thing to do, take it out, solo for a while, learn a spell here and there. so far, it's been more fun banging my head into the keyboard. >.<

i realize i'm still very early into the blu path, but it feels like my bad luck in learning spells is more than just "bad luck".

should i get my blu magic skill capped before i try learning any more spells? should i only fight decents? even matches? should i wait until lvl 10 and then start trying to learn spells? should i try for all the spells in one level range (foot kick, pollen, sandspin) before trying for the next set?

i'm mostly lvl'ing this to be a rdm sub, but since it has decent solo capabilities, i wouldn't mind taking this higher also. but as it stands, it just hurts to level it up.

any thoughts?

I personally never had trouble keeping BLU magic capped, just using it on every fight seemed to keep it capped pretty quickly into the lvl. As for the lvl of the mobs your fighting, it should not make any difference on learning. I have learned off of too weak.

I think you should read my original post again. I covered a lot of your questions in that post alone.

I don't think I put whether the level of the mob mattered, but as Feyd mentioned, it doesn't matter. First and foremost though, you need to cap your Blu magic skill.

Also, you can also look and see, what level I was when I learned the spell myself.

Good luck, hope to hear more from you on your adventures, ^^.

lol been camping Clusters in Lufaise for the past week. And, well, I a) have to be the luckiest person in the world, and b) have to be the most unlucky person in the world.

I was 8/9 for fog weather (yup, of the 9 mornings I camped it, only one didn't have fog weather). I am 5/8 on dying to clusters. And I was 1/3 on the mob performing refueling, and I am 1/1 on learning refueling:).

So, now I have every spell to 50, and am ready to make a dash for 50, then it's time for me to lvl my rdm to 41 (so I can get that stupid refresh scroll out of my inventory that I have had for 2 years).

{Congratulations!} on Refueling, ^^.

Well, soon, I'm going to go on another spell hunting run, and don't know how close I'll be to finishing up my spell list now.

It'll be a sad day though when I do, because, eventually, my thread will get buried, but, the memories of how good it was will last with me for years to come, ^^.

So, in a way, I'm really looking forward to my next spell hunting run, and then again, I'm not, but, oh well.

Blu owns regardless, :P

(That's all that matters)

I'm now 12k from 67. You have a spell hunting run anytime soon Death?

If so, I'd like to tag along. I'm hoping to be playing today, or tomorrow sometime. Logging in around 6:00pm EST.

Besides, the thread is still incomplete. I havn't learned all my spells yet. I'm not worried about it until that point. The process has slowed down due to IRL stuff (moving, waiting for house and all). Plus, leveling Drg with Blu at the same time now, cutting down on xp/login.

after about 12 hours and 42 dhalmels, i've finally learned healing breeze as 15 BLU. Trying to learn bludgeon, got owned by 4 of swords/cups/batons (links... a LOT)... Should i stick to the 2's and 3's to learn it?

I'm not sure about the exact number types, but, the ones I fought, were extremely easy (I think they were {too weak} to be exact). I believe those are the 2's and 3's, don't quote me 100% though. Just stick with it, you should learn no problem.

Lvl 18 Blastbomb -> Killed about 40 or more out in Ghelsba Outpost, seen it maybe 4-5 times, haven't learned it ><

I thought learning pollen was bad. Took me about 3 separate occasions trying for it to finally learn. Metallic Body took me a lot of kills but only 2 separate occasions and I was getting decent xp while trying to learn it. Knight's Well has plenty of crabs to whack on if anyone is having trouble with Metallic Body.

But Blastbomb....it's driving me nuts! I'm currently lv16 blu with my blu skill 1-2 levels under capped. Been trying on my own in my down time trying to get Blastbomb in Ghelsba Outpost. Usually no one on my LS when I'm doing blu so heading to Fort Ghelsba is probably out of the question. Thing is, I think there's about 3-4 total spawn points for the warmachines I've been hunting. 1 in the first area where people log, 1 near the BCNM hut, and 1 or 2 in the next area.

I usually end up dia pulling, and getting them to a sliver of hp and let them do 2 or 3 tp moves. Most of the time it's the fire ones (fireblast and the flaming arrow one?), or flood, or burst, and maybe once in awhile blastbomb. Do the warmachines deeper in use Blastbomb more or out in Lufaise? Any tips or anything for this one? Thanks in advance!

I did the ones in Fort Ghelsba myself. I think there were just more to be found there, than in the outpost. Also, every mob I pull, I keep alive until they use the move I need, or, until I just can't survive anymore without killing it.

During about 70% of my farming trips, I used a Lotus Katana as my choice weapon. It attacks faster than H2H (bare knuckles), and does next to no dmg at all. In my opinion any mob you pull, of the appropriate family type, will do the desired move at some point no matter where, or what level they are.

The only exception I know of (right off the top of my head) are Raptors.

I have all the BLU spells available up to Level 20, apart from Sheep Song.

Hardest one for me to acquire was Cocoon. I must have seen it used about 20-30 times. Was getting sick of the sight of crawlers! Finally learned it from an EP in Tahrongi at Level 17.

Definitely helps to have Blue Magic capped. I noticed a much quicker learn rate when I started to keep it regularly capped.

Yeah, I had the same experience as well. I had trouble learning a spell at one point. Then, went and capped my skills. Not only did I learn the spell I was after shortly after I did that, but, I learn a couple more right away as well.

On another subject, guys, My Blu and my Drg are both on hold at lvl 67 right now. I've been camping OSE all this time. Just to reconfirm my information, OSE is a 2hr. lottery repop still, right? Once I own the AJ, I'm going back to leveling them both. Thanks in advance, ^^.

Well cool Fragmaster. It seems like you're learning everything right on time (just about anyway). I hope you can keep that good streak up. It'll definitely keep you from getting discouraged about leveling Blu like so many others tend to get when trying to learn spells, ^^.

You can only learn Tail slap off merrows, Hysterica barrage off lamia, Diamondhide off the heavily armored trolls, evervation off the light armored trolls, warm-up off melee mamool, fire spit off mage mamool.

I know that Rysa, that's not what I was saying.

Some people say stuff like this...

"The worms in Ronfaurre(sp) won't do sandspin."

What I'm saying is that, ANY mob anywhere of any family (in my experiences), WILL use the move. You don't have to go to certain locations just to get certain mobs to use a certain move. As long as the mob is in that particular family, it'll use it no matter where you are in the game.

With the exception of Raptors.

I know you can only learn certain moves from certain beastmen types as well, but, that's not what I was talking about. Even so, no matter where you find those beastmen, they will use the move.

What I've usualy been doing is going into EXP partys untill the level I need spells then making some lame *** excuse (E.G. My toes are cold) to leave party and go solo the spell I need next.

and level 28 now... I love BLU sooooooo much >^_^<

Cool, {Congratulations!} Fizz, ^^

I'm about to go spell hunting again really soon myself. I paused once again to hunt down Assault Jerkin. Now that my Drg is about to hit level 70, once it does, I'm switching back to Blu, to take it to 70 as well. So, I'll be updating my spell hunting experiences really soon. Most likely within the next week or so. I can't wait, I miss playing so much, ^^.

Okay, feels good to be back on Blu again.

At first, it was me and two others (Ulicia & Zeratu)

Warm-Up/Firespit - I decided to target Mamool Jas in Wajoom Woodlands. As far as I knew, they were the weakest ones to target. These were located around (D-12) entrance to Mamook. You can find the Brown and Blue ones here. We camped in the tunnel, just in case we needed a quick zone. Me and Zeratu (Mnk) duoed a few of them before Ulicia arrived. After Ulicia got there, and the mobs used the moves, I learned them instantly, -_-. Ulicia = +99% learn rate? I don't know, you tell me, o.0.

After that, Ulicia & Zeratu had prior engagements that needed to attend, so, I was off seeking more help again. I was about to go xping, but, then, I did a /sea 65-70 all Blu, to see if other Blus were in the mood to do some spell hunting. Well well, what do you know, I was right....

Nicest (67Blu)
Ergoth (70Blu)?
Warhawk (71Blu)
Tarious (75rdm)
Blkkntdave (75War)
Yshtar (74Whm)
Coud (Crap, I forgot, ;;)

Hysteric Barrage/Tail Slap - We headed out to Caedarva Mire. Just as before, figuring those are the weakest Lamias around. Not too bad. Didn't have many issues with breaking the weapon at all. I didn't learn on first use, but, also noticed, I didn't have AF hands on. Equipped AF hands, and learned right after. Then, we went to Arrapago Reef, and camped the first Merrow that appears on the boat where the ??? for Pup quest is. I went 1/1 on that one, so, lol, no real story to tell there, :P.

Man, Playing Blu owns, :P
Had so much fun. That was only the tip of the iceberg of what I did last night, but, the rest doesn't really pertain to the Blu forums, ^^.

Congratulations Nicest! Thank you for the tips on where best to obtain these Mamool and Lamia/Merrow abils. As a 67 BLU myself I will be hunting these in the coming days and I hope its as smooth for me as it was for you lol. I still need Memento Mori, Body Slam, Spinal Cleave and Voracious Trunk (people who help me get abils wont go near the Marids to help, fearful of the Chigoes).

The way we did Voracious Trunk, was, we had a 71Nin tanking. I think only one more person was helping with DD. Then, the other 4 people with us, DDed, but, was on constant look out for Chigoes. The ones in Wajoom Woodlands (I think, could be Bhaflau Thickets, whichever), spawn up to 5 Chigs. They can easily be killed in no time. After that, everyone just DDs the Marid. After I learned (I was the first, ^^), I went and switched to Nin as well. 2 75Nins rip those Marids to pieces.

Wasn't too bad an experience for me. Then again, I had Deathpain (Ulicia) with me too, :P.

As always, I'm glad to help out any way I can, ^^.

Cool, cool, lots of walking for this one, but, very smooth overall. I had a lvl 75Rdm with (Hanyoko) who made everything easy as crap for both spells (also had a lvl 70 Blu with me, just helping out, didn't need either spell).

Cannonball - As always, trying to target the lowest level I can to make things easier. We head to Halvung via a entrance from Mount Zhayolm. Use the same entrance to Halvung as you did when heading for the NM Flan BCNM for your AF. There is one Wamoura right at the entrance. Then, there's another one right at the exit back into Mount Zhayolm just across the way. Basically, the Rdm chain nuked it (not chainspell) to around 40-50%. Then, we all melee it until it uses Cannonball. I basically just helped by spamming stuns, and healing the Rdm when needed. During the meleeing parts, I equipped Foot Kick and Power Attack, to spam for TP feeding. That worked out very well. The Rdm spammed Dia over and over. Both camps are right near a zone if anything should happen to go wrong.

Amplification - This (to me) was easier than getting Cannonball. These are Blm type mobs. I don't remember if they could be silenced or not. I think a Rdm main can silence it, but, I failed to pay attention, because the fights just weren't as hard as we had assumed they were going to be. ANY big spell he tried to cast, was stunned by me or the other Blu. I had Head ****, Frypan, and Blitzrahl equipped, just in case. I can only remember one instance, where, I needed to use Head **** and Frypan. As for the location, going to try and GUESS based off of my memory, so, don't get mad at me if I'm a little off. (H-9) has two near the gate, and (G-10) has two more near that gate as well. There's probably more around, but, I learned mine before we needed to move anymore. You can safely camp, right at the gates.

Good luck to you.....

Blu owns, :P

Okay, time for a (what I think) will be a nice change for the original posting. I put the experiences of me learning my spells all throughout the thread. So, if you wanted to see what I went through to get each spell, you'd have to skim through the whole thread.

Well, that just isn't that helpful for upcoming Blus, nor is it fair. I'm going to copy/paste all of those, on to the orginal posting. It'll be located at the bottom, just in case people still only need the shorthand version.

I think this will help better, because, people may get to these locations, but, not know what to expect. So, I think it's a good idea, ^^.

Tip for Spinal Cleave:

Camp at E-10 on the map with the Illrusi staging point. There is a cave where you can safely camp and out of aggro range. There are about 3 or so qutrub and a lamia smn near this spot. I easily trio'd them with a 75 thf/nin and a 75 rdm/whm. Depending on your level headbutt may not be a reliable stunning ability, so make sure to set Jettura, because the blm ones can cast -ga IIIs and sleepga II. The qutrub in this area are ~DC to a level 75.
