Cool, keep at it Death, ^^

K, so, yesterday was my first day back on Blu in a while. Glad it wasn't bad at all. I picked up MP Drainkiss, Geist Wall, and Venom Shell.

MP Drainkiss - Glad it gave me credit for all the ones I fought before I paused my leveling. Gave it to me on my second one, ^^. I tried to learn from Qufim Island leeches, was like, 0/26 so far. Then, since the warp Taru was gone from Al Zhabi, I Tele-Mea(ed) myself, switch jobs in Windy, then, was going back to Qufim, but figured I could learn three spells if I just went to B. Peninsula, then swinging over to B. Bay, and P. Isle afterwards.

Venom Shell - Okay, a lot of people may hate me for saying this, but, I'm going to. Sorry, all the talk about "You can't solo this at 42" is a bunch of crap. I went expecting this to be some really hard battle. I was Blu/Whm, and it was nothing. Spam poisona, bludgeon when he comes out, dia, wild oats, and poison breath. "If" you come /whm, instead of loading up on some antidotes, load up on some MP drinks so you won't be caught AFTER the fight with too little MP to cast poisona. This got me once. I won the fight, but died because of low MP and no antidotes. Came back with drinks and antidotes, got it on second mob, and sold the antidotes on AH (didn't use any of them).

Geist Wall - Not much to tell here. Got it on second one. Fought the ones near the docks waiting on the manaclipper to come.

I'm STILL enjoying Blu very much, ^^.

Self-Destruct - Garlaige Citadel (I do NOT recommend learning it there, and I told my party same thing, was ignored ;_;) got that about 1/15 (they basically pulled both rooms at the same time)

Stinking Gas - Garlaige Citadel - Can not be trioed even with 2 NPCs out (we got it to 8% HP and had no MP left at all) ended up getting a NIN68 to lend a hand then helped a PLD get through a banishing gate so then the PLD helped out too XD then we had a BLM75 help out aswell XD XD

thanks alot Holyvagabond (NIN), Dodecyl (PLD), Wickedmind (BLM), Crowmohon (other BLU)

I agree. Solo the bombs in Gusgen Mines. I learned the spell first try. In fact, Gusgen Mines is a great place to learn spells--I've soloed Poison Breath, Self-Destruct, Blood Saber and Terror Touch there.

Personally, I've learned spells a lot faster solo than in groups. I try to solo my spells whenever possible, but as I gain more levels, this becomes nigh impossible (I'm 53 atm).

Wooot!!!!!

I HAD AN INCREDIBLE WEEKEND on Blu. Starting from Friday, I learned, MP Drainkiss, Venom Shell, Stinking Gas, Blitzrahl, Mandibular Bite, Awful Eye, Geist Wall, Magnetite Cloud, Jettataru, Sickle Slash, AND Blood Saber, ^^.

I would've tried for Refueling during the Jettataru run, but, I forgot you need a scale to get to the clusters in Riverne A. So, do to me running out of time, I was unable to go through with all that. Now, I'm waiting for LS help to get Refueling from clusters in Mount Zhaloym(sp). I was informed it's easier, and quicker to get it from there instead. I'll let you guys know how that goes. Once I get that, I'll have all I need to xp from 43-49 non-stop, AND have all spells, ^^.

Blu owns, keep up the good work everyone, I'll update original post as well (as promised).

(now reading all new/recent posts)

Ummm, wow, that's awesome Death. Hope your luck holds out. I havn't had TOO bad a time learning spells myself. As you can see from the OP. I havn't had the BEST of luck, but, not too bad either. For example, this past weekend, I had lots of good luck, ^^.

I had an amazing couple of days!!! Got head ****, **** dive, battle dance and sheep song after it was cast only ONCE!! I was totally shocked! Cocoon, however, took about 12 times before I learned it.

Since I started as a BLU I've learned 13 spells and I'm level 11. I don't expect this to last as I've 'heard' that the higher you get, the harder it is to learn spells.

I'm really enjoying this job!!! :)

Hmmm, that's actually a backwards statement. I'd say, the higher you get, the easier it is to learn spells KAC. If you want to though, form your own opinion about it. Look at my track record in the OP. Some spells take a while, but not many.

It gets easier as you go along, because, as you go along, your blue magic skills keep increasing. I've found (my opinion) the higher the skill, the quicker/better chance you have at learning.

By the way, I learned Refueling yesterday as well. It took two mobs, but, the first didn't use. When the second mob used it, I learned it. I'm all set to go str8 to 49-50 (probably 49, I usually have my spells learned before I hit the level).

Overall, glad to see you enjoying the job KAC, ^^.

Only took nicest 2 mobs (first use). Took 1 of the other blu's I believe it was 3rd or 4th mob. Both of them were elvaan. The 3rd blue... well lets just say I got over 1000xp on DC-EM mobs with 4-6 people in the party before he learned it. He was hume.

It just seemed odd to me that both the elvaan learned it in just a few mobs, while the hume took a lot longer.


(ps, I was the tank for this... wouldn't suggest trying this without high level help, since the mobs are level 74-75).

Thanks for easing that process for me, ^^. Would've probably taken longer, and required much more cooperation had I went to Riverne Site #AO1 to get it. Which is where I was originally going to go.

I just wanna say nicest that you have some good luck. I wish i had your learning curve. Do you have millionaires desk, 4 leaf, or other luck items? LOL, i know it sounds crazy but my learning curve is rather sparatic.

The most recent off the top of my head went something like this ....

50 Self-Destruct /6
50 Frightful Roar /1
52 Cold Wave /10
52 Filamented Hold /8
54 Hecatomb Wave /24
54 Radiant Breath /20
56 Feather Barrier /8+hrs no idea how many probably 90 or so
58 Magic Fruit /4
58 Flying Hip Press /4
58 Light of Penance /5
60 Death Scissors /20+
60 Dimensional Death /2
61 Maelstrom /20+
61 Eyes On Me /10
61 Bad Breath /2
62 Memento Mori ??? (1 try so far on NM lol)
62 Body Slam /8
62 1000 Needles /3
63 Spinal Cleave /3
63 Frenetic Rip /45 (mainly due to never using ability)
63 Frypan ??? (havn't hunted this one yet will soon)
63 Hydro Shot /4
64 Feather Tickle /during EXP so didnt pay attention
64 Yawn /40+
64 Voracious Trunk /15
65 Infrasonics /4
66 Frost Breath /12
66 Sandspray /3
67 Diamondhide /5
67 Enervation /1
68 Warm-Up ???
68 Firespit ???
69 Tail Slap ??? 10 so far
69 Hysteric Barrage ??? about same 10 so far
71 Heat Breath /3

I think its far too random some times. I farm spells at capped skill. Typically try to get spells 2-4 levels early. Some spells like feather barrier were learned 1 level early and took forever to learn. I'm LV68 now just as of last night, and need my mamoo spells. I hope everyone has had better luck than me lol. I spent countless hours farming spells @.@

Thanks, I'd say my luck is okay (don't want to jinx myself, :P). I've had some rough ones though, Pinecomb Bomb, MP Drainkiss, (couple others).

I may not have a large mob count per spell, but, I do spend lots of time farming. Maybe my mob count is lower than most people's, because (this is fact, and has been proven, not going to argue) EVERY mob I've tried to learn moves from WILL do the move. I read some people saying, such-and-such mob didn't/won't use the move I need. In my PERSONAL experience, every single mob I've pulled WILL use the move you need, but, ONLY if you give it time. So, I've spent 5-10min sometimes fighting some mobs (even now) giving it the chance to use the moves.

Sometimes when I'm hunting in parties, I can't help when the other members kill the mob before I'd like them to, it happens. When I'm soloing, or duoing with my steady Blu friend (Sparky, Phoenix server), EVERY SINGLE mob we pull DOES/WILL use the moves we need. Just a matter of time, and whether you can stay alive long enough. I'm no different than every one else though, if he's down to about 1-5% HP left, and uses some other move, I may just go ahead and kill (hence how some of my mob counts ARE high), but, majority of the time, that's not a problem. I don't mind waiting for it to do the move, just so long as I learn.

So, maybe it is just me, but, I guarantee, that anyone who comes spell hunting with me, will see that I can prove that to be true without a shadow of a doubt. I've done it since level 1. Maybe my mob count is low, but, my time put in is probably very much the same as others (I think I'm less fustrated though due to this method, who knows).

Good luck though, I hope to be around your level some time soon. I'm just getting back to leveling since taking my month break to get merits.

yea my PT last night for Spinal Cleave ... 75 BLU at start kept self SCing for massive DMG. How can we learn the ability if the sword doesn't break ... and it dies. Overall most farming PTs i join know to milk the monsters. I do think SE needs to make a fail-safe learning. Maybe an item we can buy and hold, food we can eat, something. Some spells i learn fast and other spells like feather barrier which sucks ... i spent sooooo long learning.

Recently hit level 48, and I LOVE IT (Sickle Slash & Refueling)! I can't appreciate the dark based magic burst spells like I wanted to, because we were fighting bats in Garliage Citadel, so, they didn't do much at all. I'm not taking anything away from those spells, because, I know it's just because the bats are dark based themselves, and have a HIGH resistance to dark based spells.

Yes sir! Three more spells down, (Ice Break, Self-Destruct, & Frightful Roar), :) .

Ice Break - wasn't bad really. I decided to bypass the ones in Glacier, ONLY because they are spread out (5 spawn points). I opted for the ones in Fei'Yin. Not too much of a better choice, since the ones in there are surrounded by mobs that'll aggro you by sound. Just have to be patient, and wait for safe pulling opportunities.

Self-Destruct - Man, I had heard about this one, and was hoping that I wouldn't become a statistic it taking forever to learn this one. I decided to try my hand in Gusgen Mines (Spunkie = Bomb). I WAS JUST ABOUT TO LEAVE. I was 0/9. I said, okay, if I don't learn on this next one, I'm going to try a place with higher level bombs. What do you know, I learned on the 10th one, :) . I was so glad I didn't have to go and learn from much higher ones, and risk death for me, and whoever else would've helped.

Frightful Roar - Well, I went ther with every intention on soloing this. I loaded up on Persiko's Au Laits, and Yag Drinks, but, just like the last time I went to Sacrarium to farm Codexes from these, there's always competition. When I got there, there was a Bst farming Codexes. Instead of competing, I just asked could we team up. He said okay (Thanks Epincus). Wasn't too bad since the Tauruses just spammed TP on the pet hecteyes he was charming. Once it used the move, I joined in the battle to kill it quickly. The two spawn points near the entrance are on a 16min timer (The Bst taught me that). Although, I could've sword it felt like a 10min timer to me, but anyway.

Now, I'm thinking about going for the level 52 spells, but, may wait until I level a bit more. Keep at it everyone, it's worth it, :) .

{Congratulations!} Death. Blu (we) own, :P.

If you available tonight by chance, my LS is doing a subligar run. You're welcome to come along if you'd like. Soon, if you want, it seems we could hunt spells together as well (You're leveling fast). I don't get to play every day, just about every other day. No matter, you'll soon be past me, and I'll be asking you what you did to learn what spells, :P.

Besides, once my Blu reaches level 60+, I plan on alternating my playtime back and forth between my Blu and my Drg. I'll hopefully be partying with an IRL friend of mine on both jobs.

No matter what happens though, I'll always update this thread until I'm complete with it. Some people still tend to use it and benefit from it. Lol, some people know me now from this thread alone, ^^.

{All Right!} so, I set out to learn Cold Wave and Filamented Hold. IMO, the best place to solo this is in the furthese NE tower in B. Glacier. It's the uncapped Pso'Xja zone, but, you can find two Diremites, and two Snolls right near the entrance (you can zone "if" you need to). At level 50, both of these mobs con as easy prey.

Cold Wave - Proved not to be a problem. I learned that farily quickly (1/2 to be exact). Ummm, so, yeah, not much to say about that. I didn't even have the problem of having to stun the "self-Destruct" move they use.

Filamented Hold - Thus far, I'm 0/9. Filamented hold sucks to "try" and learn, because, once they use it on you, there's nothing you can do about it if you don't have erase available to you (whether you use it somehow, or someone else casting it on you). Evan haste casted on you from a level 75 won't reverse the effects. So, I'm still going at it. I'll continue trying this coming Thurs, and I'll post results.

Blu power!!!

This is my current setup. At these levels (personally, please don't flame me), I don't swap in/out so many slots as most do. I do all that stuff later on when I notice HUGE number differences. With my current setup, my numbers are averaging around

Red Lotus Blade 100% TP - 100-150dmg
Sickle Slash - 200-280dmg
Death Ray Magic Burst - 200-221dmg

on IT mobs.

Main: Combat Caster Sword +2 (no swap)
Sub: Combat Caster Sword +2 (I swap in a club when I level, to keep club skills capped along the way) (no swap)
Ammo: Olibanum Sachet (no swap)
Head: Valkyrie's Mask (no swap, unless I'm main puller, then Emperor's Hairpin)
Neck: Spike Necklace (swap in Holy Phial for Healing Breezes)
Ear1: Beetle Earring +1, Moldavite Earring on MB
Ear2: Beetle Earring +1 (no swap, unless I'm main puller, then, dual evasion earrings)
Body: Brigandine (I hate this equip) (no swap)
Hands: Elvaan RSE (no swap)
Ring1: Rajas Ring (swapping this is Blasphemous, :P)
Ring2: Venerer Ring (no swap)
Back: Red Cape +1
Waist: Life Belt (sold my sword belt +1 at level 48)
Legs: Elvaan RSE (no swap, Garrison Hose is fine too)
Feet: Elvaan RSE (no swap)

I use Sole Sushi exclusively, and, as stated earlier on in this thread, I've managed to finally cap my Str, MP, Crit. Hit Rate, and Evasion merits.

Some will not approve of my equip setup, but, I do well in my parties, and havn't had any complaints. I "think" my dmg numbers are respectable as well. If I find I'm behind in the loop, I'll step it up, but, as for now, I think I'm fine.

As far as suggestions, hmmm, I really don't like to tell people what to wear/buy. I just let them know what I'm using, and my results. I'd rather everyone just enjoy the game (so long as you ARE doing your role in the party). If your numbers are good Death, then use whatever equips you'd like. Only worry about it, if the party complains, or you're not living up to your own standards.

Oh yeah.......Blu owns, :P.

Lol, I'm not surprised Death, ^^. You'll be passing me no problem. I don't play everyday (IRL marriage not having that, :P).

Sunday - Maybe 2hrs. of playing time, then Dynamis. That 2hrs. is rare.
Monday - Every other, 5:30pm til whenever
Tuesday - Every other, 5:30pm til whenever
Wednesday - none
Thursday - 5:30pm til whenever
Friday - none
Saturday - every other SUPER EARLY mornings. I usually play every Sat., but, not for the same length of time each time. Log anywhere between 12-4pm. Then, usually spend family time. Every other Sat. though, I get to get a REALLY early start on Sat. mornings. Those days, are highly productive, ^^.

So, I won't be surprised if you pass me, and I start having questions for you soon, :P. I make the best of it during the time I play though, ^^.
