The good news for you is that years of careful testing have proven that your likelihood to learn a spell increases exponentially after you complain about how hard it is to learn said spell, whether its on a forum, to your linkshell, in an angry e-mail to SE, etc.

Hang in there; as long as you have the magic skill, you'll get it eventually. That spell probably seems much worse than it actually is because low level trees are so few and far between and take forever to find, especially if you don't go 1/1. Pinecomb Bomb wasn't so bad for me. I think I went 1/1 or 1/2. Frenetic Rip is what killed me.

Just wait until you get to the ToAU spells. For some reason SE decided that it would be a really cute idea to make it so imps, lamia, qutrub, etc will not use certain moves until after you break the weapons they are holding (usually by dealing critical damage). Obviously, the only way this idea could get any cooler is if they just happened to make these moves the ones that BLUs get the privilege of trying to learn. So, that's what they did.

For instance, an imp will only use Frenetic Rip after he drops his horn, which as an astronomically small, in my experience... chance of happening when you deal critical damage. The really fun part is that the imp can and will pull a new horn out of his ***, sometimes without even using the move, meaning you have to make him drop it, again.

Needless to say, I'm a bit bitter about this spell. Not only did I hardly ever see it, I went 0/30+ on the imps that did use it.

just wait until you get the some of the ToAU spells where the mob needs to be in a certain stance for you to learn it:
ie frenetic rip and animating wail.

This is the best way to level Blu in my opinion. I made to around 60 just hunting spells. Kept sword and blue skill capped with ease.

I was never able to level off of spell hunting alone. Sadly I went 1/1 on nearly all of mine. =/

I remember when I first got pine cone bomb...

I giggled for a good hour shooting every mob i saw in Rolanberry. I don't know why... just something about shooting pine cones at things.

I was kinda the same when I got sheepsong... I was playing blu/bst or bst/blu at mid-20's and had a bunch of fun sleeping the huge links of bats. so I had not troubling dispelling and killing a few small crowds. ^.^
I was really excited about having my first AoE spells... It was kinda silly really, but fun.

Evidently most people don't realize that Vorpal blade is crit hit and 33-50% chance breaking horns on imps or making other monsters use there unique moves.

As for Anaminating wail mentioned above, you dont have to do anything special for that, but do for spinal cleeve, what is a worthless spell.
