No need to argue folks :)

I'll go back and perhaps clarify the 1000 Needles page a dot to include the /SMN solo strat, which I feel is good advice if you happen to not have friends to drag out for the spell, and no fellow handy. I'll probably get it in my next tidy up update. It's useful info.

Speaking of which, I have made a number of small additions to various pages. Nothing major, just some new info to Cannonball (the fact that if you don't deal spike damage they don't tend to curl up) and some other random corrections here and there.

Also currently working on getting a solid fix on the levels of the Ladybugs and Colberi in Ronfair of the past.

If anyone has a job in the 44 to 48 range can they do some looking at levels?

So far I'm seeing ladybugs at 45-47 and Colberi at only 45 and 46. Anyone see anything different? I spent a lot of time looking, and have not seen mobs outside this range, even though some refrence pages say there are other levels (and the guide reflects this possibly off info currently)

Also, has any one gotten a Decrepit Gnole to use Asuran Claws under the full moon yet? Still trying to pin down that spell use pattern.

As always thank you for the support and help keeping the Hunting grounds an as complete and correct resourse as possible! Hopefully we will be seeing an update and new spells in the next few weeks!

Believe it or not, I didn't rate you down initially. I was just pointing out that I felt there were plenty of points on getting the spell solo. And, while Wyvern can't be called from Subjob, avatars, puppets, and even fellows are listed, which are all possible with the right subjobs. Beast pets are probably the hardest one to use, since you might inadvertantly kill the cactaur before you want to. Which is the frustrating end of the deal.

I'd like to thank you for making such a useful guide for all sorts of spell hunting. I would, however, also like to make a correction to two of your pages:

On the Tail Slap and Hysteric Barrage guides, in both cases you note lamias/merrows which are near some draugars. You warn to be careful with pulls, only pulling when the draugar's far enough away from the lamia/merrow, so as to avoid links.

I don't know if perhaps they linked in the past, but I was just hunting these spells with an LS mate earlier today. And I can assure you (with experience from several hours more lamias than I wish it had taken) that they do not link, either by sight or by sound. At the very least, not in the camps we were using: the lamia COR just outside Arrapago (both of the lamia CORs there actually, though we were Carby pulling the one further from zone so we wouldn't have to kill off all the draugars in the way), and the lamia BLM and merrow BRD not far inside.

The draugar do, of course, *aggro* sound and low HP, so of course you have to watch out for that when pulling (keep HP white, don't go standing near draugars in order to be in range of pulling lamia/merrow, that sort of obvious stuff), but links are a non-concern.

Even though they do use it, you cannot learn it from them. Only Diamondhide can be learned from PLD, WAR, and DRK Trolls.

All trolls use Enervation and Diamondhide but it's only possible to learn Diamondhide from the armored trolls and Enervation from the non-armored. Sorta like how Merrow and Lamia both use Tail Slap and Hysteric barrage but Tail Slap is Merrow learn exclusive and Hysteric Barrage is Lamia learn exclusive =)

Edit: Damn, Itrebul beat me to it although we both posted at the same time!

Hello Folks!

The Hunting Grouds is seeing updates on the five new spells as info comes in. Hunting links can be found for them in the small table under the main one. They will be integrated into the main list soon!

Good luck!

(I'm looking at 6+ hours for the update to finish, so I'll not be getting anything tonight)

Hello folks!

Major addition to Body Slam page. Two new camps added there, including one where the spell can be Soloed at 75, or duoed/trioed by some level 75 helpers for lower BLU's.

A solo strat for Reactor Cool added.

Learn levels corrected on a few pages where they were off.

I appreciate the updates folks are sending. Thank you!

Is it possible to repeat the BCNM? Galarhigg didn't use Body Slam for me and this caused me much anguish. I know you can repeat BCs in RoZ and CoP as long as the person to click the circle/door/gate/coalescence is actually on that mission, and I'm fairly certain you can in ToAU, though I haven't gotten around to any of the BC fights in that expansion. I'd hate to know I missed my chance.

Yes you can repeat this mission as many times as you want as long as you are in a party with someone who is currently on the mission and have him go in. It took me 3 tries with different ppl to see Body Slam, and went 1/1 on it. :D

Hello pochenlai.

I'm glad that you like the guide.

As for a solo leveling guide, I'm hesitant to write one up for a number of reasons. The biggest being that subjob and players personal risk desire plays a huge part.

I soloed as a /WHM and was amazingly conservitive targeting only DC and below, and staying at pet camps long after exp became too low for most players tastes. My guide would work, but it would be amazingly annoying and boring for most other players. While I'd find other folks target mobs insane to try. So much variety.

Building a true solo guide would be the work of the BLU forum, much as the Beastmasters did in their own subforum. Someone sets up a framework, and then all add to it. The Hunting grounds keep me pretty busy as they stand with updates, so I'm happy to let someone else take on a solo guide project :)

Myriads.. haven't seen you in game lately.. might just be bad timing.

Anyway.
Body Slam Camp 6 (Dynamis Buburimu)
1> Only Barong and Apocalyptic Beast can use Body Slam.
Barong will only use Body Slam, no other Dragon moves.
Apocalyptic Beast can only use Body Slam if Barong has not been killed.
note: when Apocalyptic Beast is killed, all other dragons despawn.

2> Only need ability to enter Dynamis, and be past Diablos in CoP mission storyline to gain access. Don't need any other zone wins.

Hello folks,

Souleman, thank you very much for the information on the Body Slam camp. The page has been changed to reflect your information. On a personal note, I have been about, just have been doing a lot of Campaign of late, as I near completion of my 3rd Solo project job; PUP should hit 75 in a a week or so at my current pace. Like BLU all soloed. (I do count campaign as solo content) I enjoy fighting with my little Puppet friend Mushroom. Odds are we are just on at different times. Now I have to think about solo project #4.... hmmm DNC looks promising.

In other Hunting Ground News: New camps added for Frenetic Rip and Spinal Cleave. A number of low level spells got new camps broken out based on suggestions by users about convience in getting to the camp as a factor. An example being MP DrainKiss where a user suggested Jugnar forest, thanks to the easy OP port, and numbers of leeches about.

A few more of the typos got caught, and bits of bad info here and there has been corrected as testing happens.

An thanks Nicest. It's been good to see yoru name on my friendslist as active again of late.

As always I hope that all the growign BLU's are learning spells with ease!

Quick question... can you learn spells in Nyzul Isle assault? Our group seems to get Soulflayers and Poroggos all the time. Instead of grabbing a party to farm the spell, I wanted to see if I could just bring BLU along to Nyzul and get some of my spells that way.

As far as I'm aware you can. Mobs give experience, so I don't see any reason why you shouldn't be able to do so.

I've been very unlucky the past two times I went BLU on nyzul, though, and flayers didn't even pretend to use Mind Blast.

Yep! My friend has learned both Mind Blast and Body Slam in Nyzul, although I, sadly, have not.

My group fears Soulflayers and Dahaks in Nyzul, while I see them as an opportunity to learn the spells lol

Just fyi, Mind Blast can be easily done by a trio of 74-75 blu's. When I learned it, I went 67blu/whm and just cast status cures, and though it took a while to learn it, the 3 75 blu's were still easily getting chain 3. When we had a bored bard show up also, we were getting chain 5. This is out at the camp mentioned on the hunting grounds site, where khimara spawns.

Basically, the point is if you haven't got MindBlast by 74, grab a couple other blu's and its easy. I know there are a lot of blu that don't have it by 75, and don't realize how easy it is to actually get.

Hello BLU's!

I just finished about a dozen updates to various pages around the Hunting grounds. Some new camps for Jettatura, Proof that frenetic rip can be learned from Campaign mobs with no tags on, and lots of small updates to other pages.

Hope that all of you are doing well with spell learning!

Hello!

Just wanted to share a method I used to learn the spell Warm-Up solo as 73BLU/NIN.

This method could probably be used at 72 since you have the spells used in this method already and the target mobs are EM-T.

Spell Set:

Cocoon
Metallic Body
Refueling
Voracious Trunk
Cold Wave
Frightful Roar
Self-Destruct
Sheep Song - back up Sleep
Pinecone Bomb - really not necessary but back up Sleep
Soporific - Main Sleep used w/ Dark Staff
Corrosive Ooze
Poison Breath
Regurgitation
Head Butt
Magnetite Cloud - dmg/Weight (did not get the Weight effect too often but it
still helped)
Magic Fruit
Zephyr Mantle
Frost Breath

Battle Strategy:

Buffed up (Utsu, Refueling, M.Body, Cocoon)

Pulled the Bounder(THF) Mamool Ja at Camp A on Blue Mage Hunting Grounds with Ranged, while being cautious to not allow a link.

Got as far into tunnel as I could and then would proceed to Magnetite Cloud, followed by Soporific.

Rest/Reapply Buffs - during this time I would watch my Soporific timer to make sure I could be ready when the spell would wear (Spell usually wears when timer is up/Never got a resist using a Dark Staff and lasted full 90 secs)

With a few seconds left on timer I would get up rebuff again if needed and proceed to ready Magnetite Cloud again followed by Frost Breath to Soporific

I would continue this method with safety (sometimes only reapplying sleep between resting to get MP back) until the Bounder had just a small amount of HP left. At this point one Frost Breath should do it in.

At this point, I would kill if it had used Warm-Up. However if not, I would let sleep wear and then use an Earth Staff to take some damage and let the mob hit 100 TP to use a move. While this could be dangerous I never felt my life was in danger. There is a nearby zone and I found it is pretty hard to get interrupted while casting Soporific after buffs had worn (it happens but is rare).

After mob was slept, I would cure HP and reapply buffs and continue until I saw Warm-Up used.

Using this method I was able to learn Warm-Up solo and have some fun too!
For gear choices I tended to go more toward mage choices (hMP+, MP+, MND, INT)
I can be more specific if needed.

I have not seen anyone else post a solo method for this spell and noticed there was not one on Blue Mage Hunting Grounds, so I thought I would offer my strategy for other BLUs who enjoy solo play and don't get invited to many parties. It was based on the solo Canonnball method however, or rather that is where I got the idea to try this.

If any clarifiation is needed just PM me. Good luck guys!

Myriads great guide.

I was able to solo Claw Cyclone at 20 in Jugner Forest with a healer NPC. (much tougher w/o it, although probably not impossible).

I was never in any danger of dying even, (unless I had a bad pull or unwanted aggro).

Between Emp. Band, fields of Valor (and items), and using Ambrosia (mp recovers quickly) I was getting chain 1-2 on T-VT mobs and leveling very quickly here as well.

I was /whm if that matters.

Hey Myriads,

Great Guide... I have been recently killing Poroggo Gents in West Sarutabaruta [S] trying to learn Magic Hammer. It was never mentioned in your guide but might worth the mention.

When you take on a Poroggo Gent here it does have a limited MP pool with no Autorefresh. Meaning that if you set MP Drainkiss and spam that spell whenever your timer is up for recast, do it! This will depleat the Poroggo from casting those big spells like Firaga III, Stone IV, Thundaga III, and Sleepga. Something I notice that is more important. When you have Drainkissed all the Poroggo's MP, when it uses providence it has no MP to cast with so it will sit there with the effect of Providence on and it cant do anything with that TP ability because those providence spells cost MP and it has none... That is until it finally uses Magic Hammer and steals your MP. As soon as it does get any trace of MP, it seems to use one of its special providence magic spell. It seems to me that Providence does not wear after a while. For me, it used Providence roughly ten minutes before it used Magic Hammer. First thing it cast on me after stealing my MP was Breakga.

Anyways, Spam MP Drainkiss if your coming here and it doesnt use Magic Hammer for a while... by doing so, your reducing the poroggo from casting magic and instead only melee'ing you.

I just did two Poroggo Gents from the SArutabaruta [S] zone...

I could only MP Drainkiss 428MP MAX!

Took about 5-6 MP Drainkisses on average to completely drain the mobs MP. So there you go.

Good tip on the Gents. I'll update that page on my next pass.

Never a problem seeing it bumped.

I've been collecting small updates that I'll be making in the near future when I have the time.

Included will be some spells learned in MMM, the fact that Body Slam can now be easily soloed via two of the new FoV training routines, and the usual collection of small fixes.

I hope to get this done in the next few weeks. Time is always hard to find!

Definately bookmarking this, however . . .

Just noticed the root of the link to the guide is a path to http://74.53.42.102/

Also known as The Tickling Media Foundation: "With over 80,000 members, the TMF is the world's largest and friendliest online tickling community. And with tens of thousands of tickling stories, images and videos, we're also the most diverse and comprehensive showcase for community artists, writers and producers!"

Awesome guide, kind of creepy now, but still an awesome guide.

The Hunting grounds has basic info on the new spells, and tomorrow will get a huge update.

I got both tonight, and learned lots of little details. Lots of details to share :)


Good luck with all your hunting!
