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
