I joined a random group earlier trying to get the new spells. The Ruzsors linked, not sure if they link by sight or sound since I wasn't the puller. It was a bigger Ruzsor that linked when a smaller Ruzsor was pulled.

I can't seem to get to the Blue Mage Hunting Grounds site. All I'm seeing is a SonicWALL site, bearing the message:

The site is still up. It's hosted underneath a site that has adult content upon it, so that is what is producing your result. Given the Bandwidth costs the site produces (It's using about 20+ gigs a month) the fact that I can park it for free on the server is why it's there. :)

Sorry for the problems.

I will just be another one of the many that will continue giving you kudos on this compilation. You should probably go through and teach some of the other people out there how to actually build a guide that is informative instead of leaving you lost searching for answers.

Hello Folks,

Thank you for recent kind words. ALways good to hear.

I wanted to tell folks that I am prepping the Hunting Grounds for the 8 new spells that are coming, and have been discovered in the New 6/10/10 dats.

I should have pages ready for them come update.

Animating Wail: AoE Haste [Qutrubs]
Battery Charge: MP recovery [Magic Pots]
Regeneration: Regen [Sea Monks]
Leafstorm: AoE damage [Treants]
Cimicine Discharge : AoE Slow+ Haste on self [Gnats]
Demoralizing Roar: AoE attack down [Wivres]
Plenilune Embrace: HP recovery, Erase and other buffs [Gnoles]
Fire bomb attack [Unkown]
Water breath attack. [Unknown]

Of course they might pull others out of the unused dats also!

I'll be counting on all the BLU's out there to help fill in info on things as best we can!

The frameworks for the 9 possible new spells are up in a small table under the main one on the Hunting Grounds now. I'm all ready to go for next monday! :)

Looking forward to it!

The pages are filling out nicely. Thank you for all the help I've been sent.

Looking for more information on Blazing Bound, and where it's mobs live exactly. I checked one location listed but found Clionids there instead.

Hope people spell learning is going well!

I think I learned Blazing Bound in Abyssea La Theine. No map and at work now so can't be certain, maybe you can confirm, we farmed them at about E-5 / E-6.

So, in the general section of ffxiclopedia forums, jtftaru made a post with a bunch of abyssea info. New detailed information on Abyssea

In one of the pictures (Abysea - Konschtat) you can see Xzomits. I did La Theine when I went into abyssea, so I cannot confirm this or any other sea mobs, but it seems that you could use abyssea to learn Saline Coat and possibly other sea spells.

http://www.playonline.com/pcd/verup/ff11us/detail/5578/5578_2.jpg

Still no reason to not get sea with how easy it is now, but this is an option to get some sooner.

ggrozny,

Thank you for the info, I'll look into it. Do you feel the spell is soloable? Or would having a WHM tag along be the best thing?

And I'll update the zomit spell once we start to get more info on the mobs placement.

Hmm not sure, I was with a group of 5. They are probably soloable, since they will use less TP moves, and the TP moves seemed like the deadliest thing about them.

Re: The Limules, They could be soloed, but it would be no fun. :)

I brought a 75WHM and I had no issues. We even took a VT by accident. This one is best for a DD/Healing duo methinks!

The Blue pages are pretty solid now, all 9 spells have information, and good camps, and the minor info is getting filled in.

My thanks to all who have been helping.

Sorry if this is too much of a necro, but as of the last update a fair number of older spells could use significant updates due to the removal of the cop zone level restrictions. This makes some things much more soloable, and opens up some much easier camps for a good number of spells.

Agreed, some things will need updating. But with mobs getting shifted about, and levels changed, I've been hanging back on altering the older stuff. I'll take any good suggestions in hand and run with them though. :)

Well, let's see. Radiant Breath can be gotten not too far from where you already say to get jettataura, those firedrakes are pretty easy. Best camp seems to be in some ruins a little ways west of the spot you circled with the hippogryphs. There are like 4 or 5 firedrake spawns, and they respawn fast enough that you shouldn't run out if no-one else comes and kills them.

I got Filamented Hold and Frightful Roar in the Aqueducts at the same time, first room with 3 tauri has 4 or so diremites up the ladder, so switching off between spawns works pretty well.

I also got Cold Wave in the Pso'xja tower closest to the OP, but I was getting it a bit late and I'm not familiar with what Pso'Xja towers used to be what level, so that might not be the easiest camp.

That's all the info I've got off the top of my head, hope it helps.

Edit: Oh, another thing. The Addled Tumor in the Aqueducts that you list for Stinking Gas is moved a little bit. It actually now spawns right in the spot you say to pull it to. There are a bunch of level 80-some spiders where it used to be, though they don't seem to aggro.

Hello folks.

The Hunting grounds has been updated with the frameworks for the seven new spells (Found in the mini table at the page bottom) Info will be added as info comes in over the next days after update.

As always, I appreciate the info people share here.

I'll work on getting the older pages edited to reflect the changes as the above poster suggested as my life and time permits.

Yet another poster wanting to express kudos for this site.

Having created and maintained a few websites myself (keyword: "created". Editing wiki doesn't count), I fully understand what it takes to create something like this. Creating any website can take a lot out of your personal time and this was obviously done by someone who truly cares about Blu Mage.

I'm sure I can speak for others out there who feel the same way but, I can't tell you how much I appreciate the time, effort and research put into Blu Spell Hunting Grounds and keeping it updated in such a timely manner. It is my go-to site for finding the best place to get spells, where to get the new spells and whether or not it can be soloed, and has been for all 80 levels on my Blu.

Keep up the good work Myriads just letting you know your efforts are very much appreciated, and to say "Thank You for this".

Thank you for the very kind words above. It's very nice to hear.

All the pages but the two Abyssea ones are now filled out pretty soundly.

Hopefully we'll start to see some info for those two spell soon :)

I'm glad the pages are helping folks.

Some info that I'll work into the pages tomorrow at some point when it's not 3AM :)

Amoeban use Osmosis They do not aggro sight or sound. They might link, or aggo magic.
Murex use Benthic Typhoon

There is a camp with both at hand just inside Attowa Chasm -Aby.

Enter and go to the first canyon to the right, there are two tunnels off of it. the one on the East has 4 EM-T Rock Murex and the one on the Right has 4 Crevice Amoeban Dc to EM

They are nasty. The Amoeban cast Stone V, and hit hard. I ended up sleeping it and warping out. Perhaps someone more skilled with the ways of /NIN then I could take them, but I'll be returning with back up.

There is another good Amoeban camp just in the first meadow of Misurex - Aby a ton of DC-EM Protoamoeban's float there.

If folks find more feel free to add it.

(sleep time}

Amoeban aggro sound and magic, don't link. Levels will increase with kills over time so that information isn't necessarily valid. Amoeban solo is feasible but not recommended, they have a nasty para move that ignores shadows. If they don't have enhanced movement speed (honestly don't remember) you could kite them with wlegs or Atma of Ambition until it wears off. Murax cast spikes spells, agas, and T5 black magic. Amoeban are readily available just outside the entrance to Vunkerl, head south a bit for Murax.

Can Radiant Breath be learned from Firedrakes in Riverne A01? Cause it's not listed on Hunting Grounds, but wiki says it's possible, have killed around 25 of em now, and it has not been used once.

A confirmation on either would be appriciated ^^

as long as they are able to use radiant breath, you should be able to learn from it. (I was running around B01 for mine, so I'm not 100% on them.) If they don't, just hop over to Riverne Site B01 (if you have access), and learn it from them.

I got Radiant Breath by using MMM (Tabula R01) and taking in a level 10 mule. The mobs were all level 10~13, and it was a very simple matter to build tp on them with my fists and let them hit me for TP. Got the move on my first try.

Edit: Obviously, Dragon Rune needs to be set for this to work, so you might need a little legwork to get it, but it's definitely worth it.

Pages for all new spells have been added in the table at the bottom of the main BLU Spell page. Info will be added as it comes in.

Recently had the server eat itself so the address has shifted again: http://173.192.108.24/~tforum/blu/BLUMain.html

Good luck with spell hunting!

I'm not sure if this has been reported since the Aug 2010 update but the Tauri in the Aquaducts can be learned from. I got Frightful roar from them last night. To be exact is the three Tarus spawn location right before the ladder to Map 2 and the Minotaur. Sadly, I lack a screen shot due to my laptop's key layout.

I'm not sure if this has been reported since the Aug 2010 update but the Tauri in the Aquaducts can be learned from. I got Frightful roar from them last night. To be exact is the three Tarus spawn location right before the ladder to Map 2 and the Minotaur. Sadly, I lack a screen shot due to my laptop's key layout.


Kind of goes without saying. The reason you couldn't learn it there before was that your Blue Magic caps too low at the level cap of the area, not because they were magical tauri that deny you your spells. Thus when the level cap was lifted, learning from them became possible.

With the way people level now (1-30 then power to 90 through abyssea) the site seems a bit out of date. I was looking for a way for my friend to learn Maelstrom for grellow procs. He's a new level 90 BLU so I decided to try taking him to Abyssea - Vunkerl and fighting Jasconius near conflux 3. After a few dozen kills we even popped Iku-Turso a couple times. No luck getting Maelstrom or Regeneration here. The site lists Bibiki Bay as the best place to go, but that seems like a LOT of travel time for only 8 spawns that aren't even close together. Have you considered the Labyrinth of Onzozo? There are over a dozen Flying Mantra in there. Or if we go there, will we run in to the same problem we had in Abyssea?

Also, it seems many of these suggested areas are highly recommended because they are able to be solo'd at the level they are able to be learned. Well, with the way Abyssea gives you xp, I highly doubt you will find many BLU that are still farming spells that way. Would you have different suggestions for a level 90 BLU who only has a few basic spells learned? (IE - mobs that a level 90 won't pummel to death before they can even use a TP move).

This guide has been terribly helpful but it might be nice to upgrade the camps to include Abyssea camps.

For instance, its far easier to learn Mind Blast from Flayers in Abyssea Vunkerl than to wander all over Arrapago Reef.

I imagine Cannonball might be the same with the wamoura in Abyssea Attowha.

Hello folks,

In answer to several of the above questions:

Yes, the guide was designed to offer the best mob for the spell starting around when you could learn the spell. Which now is a style of play that is out of synch with the 30-90 in one big bite that {A} offers. So there are a lot more 'good' camps for spells if one is coming at them from a higher level.

If I have the time and energy I'll start to add in some of these backwards looking camps, but everything on the site is done by me alone, and time is not as free for me as it was when I built that monster, so I can't promise that I'll be able to add anything fast.

Part of me thinks the Hunting grounds time has passed, and I should just take it down. The wiki probably does it all much better now.

As always, good luck with spell hunting!

While you may have a bit of outdated info here or there, that's hardly reason to take it down. The wiki really doesn't go into the kinda of detail your guide does, and I honestly feel like it's loss would be a pretty big blow to the blu community, particularly newer blus.

Though if I was going to make one systemic improvement, it would be changing the info on minimum level to learn spells directly into the minimum skill required to learn it, as more blue magic skill pieces than just the jubbah have come into play, not to mention of course the possibility of merits. Or perhaps, in lieu of removing the level information, simply adding the info on required skill. Those aforementioned blus who've burned their way up are probably at least a bit under-skilled. Not that I would know aaaaanything about that >_>; *Whistles innocently*
(Yeah it's not too hard to calculate the amount of skill you need from the level, but it would still be nice to have the info up)

Oh no plans to take it down, just some passing thoughts of feeling obsolete.

Putting the BLU magic skill cap for learn abilities over a flat job level + item is a good idea. Of course it means I'll need to edit 120 pages O.o thats a project for later :)

The Blu pages are updated with the new spells. :)

Still looking for the new Puks that use White Wind.

Confirmed that Harden Shell can be learned from the small turtles in Ab-Tahrongi.

Good luck in spell hunting!

Just wanted to say, I could not imagine BLU without BMHG. I love that site and it made leveling Blu and finding spells possible.
I dislike Wiki's BLU hunting. I love your site. Maps and everything are included! I never have wiki'd a single BLU spell, just BMHG and I showed my friend the same way :)

This times a million. Hunting grounds is the greatest resource for any new blu.

The Hunting grounds have been updated with information on the 13 new spells including some gems for those hard to find spells :)

So we are all ready for the update.

Good luck to all blues with spell learning!

I'm still in game, though a bit more quite. :)

#193kimjongil76, Posted: Dec 14 2011 at 4:30 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) for Bloodrake I recomend Oupire in Underland sea ruins. He is easy to get to. You could 2-4 man it. Only bad part is his two hour pop.

The pages have been updated with new camps and some better info on a few spells.

Still looking for any reports of Quadrastrike being used by regular demons in CoP or WotG (Non Dynamis) zones. If you see it drop a line.

Happy hunting!

I just obtained it from Marquis Sabnock in Castle Zvahl Baileys. 1/2. He spams the move. I'm not sure if that increases the chance of learning it or not, to see it several times, but if you just melee him down you'll surely see it 5+ times at the very least.

Thanks for the site, I love it. I would add the First Leuitenant assault Bellaphron's Bliss for Tourbillion. Just went with a group of 4 and 2 of them got it.

Many of the Unbridled spell pages will see some serious additions in the weeks ahead as information shakes out about options for learning.

I appreciate all the feedback folks provide!
