A little confused with this who lvl thing... as a 45 blu, i grabbed 2 75 friends and went to Grauburg [S]to hunt down Jettatura since i dont have CoP missions done... 2 hours of the hunt and did not learn it. my blu magic skill is capped. anything I am missing (miss understanding)? Or am I just really unlucky?

You're just unlucky. Don't worry, though. Now that you've made the obligatory rant post, you'll learn it the next time you try, just to make you look silly.

It works every time.

Eight hours in Halvung fighting bombs for Refueling says you're par for the course. There's always one or two spells that an individual finds hard to get. Keep working at it - it'll come eventually.

Wish that were the case for me with Refueling... I posted over the course of a few weeks on different places, never got it.

Three weeks after I gave up on it, I got it as a fluke during Besieged. Just happened to team up with a friend who just happened to get the kill shot on a bomb.

I went 1/52 on Terror Touch, lol. Took me about 3 weeks to learn it. Just don't get discouraged and you'll be fine.

Thanks guys ^^ I was just double checking to make sure that my lvl vs a 72~75 mob was the reason why I couldnt learn the spell. I wont let you guys down, only bring up our tarnished rep :D

Nah, basically as long as you're fighting a mob that can use said TP move (with some minor exceptions), that you're high enough level/Blue Magic Skill to learn the spell, the mob uses the spell, and you're alive at the end, you'll have a chance of learning it. It can be a long and frustrating process like the others have been saying, to where even when you're meeting all the requirements to learn it, it could still take you several (and I mean several) mobs before you eventually learn it. The only advice we can give is to just keep trying and you'll eventually get it.

So 1/52, etc, isn't par for the course? The only spell since level 30 I've gotten under 30 tries is Magentite Cloud. I thought 50+ attempts was the norm... >.>

I'd say par would be under 10 tries. That 1/52 was just a freak occurrence.

I'd say my overall learning rate was about 1/10 or so, with only a couple notable spells giving me an extremely hard time in trying to learn them (Disseverment and Healing Breeze being two that come to mind). Some Blue Mages luck out and get their spells quickly, then there are some that seem to never be able to learn their spell and take days to eventually learn it.

I seem to average 1/3 on learning spells. Many were 1/1. Unfortunately, I have a list of around 8 that counterbalance it. When I'm having a trouble spell, it'll take 100+ mobs (not counting ones refusing to use the move) before I get it. Then there are the spells that I can't get to or are way to big and I need to get an army to kill.

1/1 on Bludgeon and Yawn, 1/182 on Feather Tickle. My favorite though is 1/0 on Hecatomb Wave (I just happened to be in range of my friend who killed a kindred, didn't even know there was a fight in the snowstorm that was going on at the time and I was just walking across the zone to meet up at a mission fight).

I would say (anecdotal) that just like you need a certain level of Blue Magic Skill to learn a spell, having even more than that increases your odds of learning spells. Main reason I'm saying this is because with 8/8 blue magic merits, AF2 head and AF1 body, coupled with AF1 learning gloves, I never really go more than 1/3 on anything (of course, this only includes recent spells like Sub-Zero Smash, etc...) Has anyone else noticed this or am I just lucky?
