Yes INT helps this spell, as it helps all 'black' spells. If you look to the left of any spell you have learned you'll see the 'info ball' which denotes the spells base element & if it's white or black, white spells will have a cross in it while black is a swirling vortex, all white is MND andd black is INT.

Why are there so many posts of the same question? And why do people keep posting up there costs of drain spell in their serves?

WHO CARES! We are in different servers or if we are in your server, then we probably know by now that it's costly anyhow! So stop posting wasteful comments!


Anyway, by anyone's opinion what do you think is the easiest quest in Sandy/Selbina that would cost the least gil to do in order to get lv 3 fame in sandy?

Much apprecaited :-D

I remember getting fame for this back in the day and the quest I used was like 4 la theine cabbages to the sheep guy in selbina. It's easiest done when your nation controls Valkurm so you can buy the cabbage from the area vendor, OP warp to Valk, turn in your inventory full of cabbage, and warp back. Or even Teleport now that I think about it.

I used to have a few mules for my character and I would always race them to rank 2 within 3 hrs and do 15 unique quests, triggered the drain quest no problem, got the scroll, sold it for the gil for crafting.

But now it looks like something changed. I've got 20 quests done and rank 2... yet, now I can't get the stupid quest to trigger. Anyone else have this problem?

You'll have to get to Novalmauge in Bostanouix Oubliette, which is under the Chateau d'Oraguille in San d'Oria, and to get into the chateau you need to be at least rank 2. You need a certain amount of fame too, don't know how much. Novalmauge needs a vial of beastman's blood and in exchange he gives you the scroll. The quest is at http://ffxi.allakhazam.com/db/quests.html?realm=&fquest=82

I'm a whm/blm with a low dark skill and I'm only taking whm to 38 to sub for brd, so I was wondering if this has a good damage/mp ratio if you don't have high int and dark skill.

It's selling for 70-80k right now and I've got this far without it just fine, so I'm leaning towards selling it.

Also, getting Sandy fame is very easy. I have lvl 4 fame everywhere right now and it wasn't very hard. Only the Best in Selbina with the Boyohda Moss gets you Bastok, Jeuno, Selbina, and Sandy fame (Doesn't lower Norg fame ;) and the cornette one in Windy is even easier.

This spell does damage based on your Dark Magic skill, and retores some of your HP too. Even if it says that it drains 0 HP because you're at full, it will STILL do damage to your target. Great spell to have, use it every times you can. It can end up doing 200+ damage at the higher levels and it'll only cost you 21 MP..

it seems as if s-e is extremely biased towards sandy.....

I just got my drain spell yesterday. my main is a war in sandy, so i used him to get the spell for my alt blackmage in windy. eventually i will get my BLM over to sandy to do the quest so i can sell it :).
in my opinion the cheapest way to get this is to get to lvl 3 fame in sandy with a different char if your char isn't in sandy, go by some beastmen blood from the AH and then there ya go, a 2-5k drain spell :P

This is a great spell only I think it should not be a quested only item or should be a quested only item if you are of that job and that level to use it.

The cost of this spell as gone up 20K in the last seven months and its a shame because not all players can get to Sandy and do the quest.

I just paid 40K this morning for my taru character to have it and believe me when she can do the quest she will and I will recoup my losses.

Anyone have a rough formula on how effective drain is for different levels of mobs?

I'm guessing it would be something involving dark skill, int, day, enemy resistance/element and maybe a few other factors.

when bastok is in control of the region with Saramough go to the person near the Bastok markets / Bastok Mines brigde and buy as many stacks of millioncorn you can. then go to selbina and trade them by 3's to the person near the sheep. Make a second and maybe 3rd trip and you will have rank5 fame in Bastok Sandoria and Jueno.

Quest gives fame for each of those countrys

only bad thing about question for this if you are not a San d'Orian is that, well you have to have Rank 2 in San d'Oria (or higher) to be abel to receive this quest.

So, you still have to drop about 8k to change your allegance to sandy then back.

Drain Chainspell Combo?

I have an idea for a drain chainspell combo for a RDM/DRK and would like some input. My idea is to cast chainspell, then drain over and over until mp is almost gone then Aspir to gain more mp and repeat drain until the enemy is dead. My question is this: Will drain still take HP from the enemy even if my HP bar is full? If anyone has any experience with this please let me know. Thanks
RE: Drain Chainspell Combo?
# May 25 2004 at 9:43 AM Rating: Decent
In my experience, Drain will not take HP out of a critter if your HP bar is full. I'm in a party with two BLM and one WHM that all have Drain (the WHM has a BLM sub, of course), and I have never seen Drain grab HP unless the caster was at less than full health. One of the BLMs actually refuses to let the WHM heal him after one strike just so that he can use Drain. :)

Drain does work even when you are at full hp. It will say "0 hp drained" but in fact still deal damage. Try it out on a low level mob and you will see how you are just drain it to dealth.

A must have spell I must say. Very nice damage/mp ratio. Would recommend questing for it rather than buying. Takes a bit of time but well worth it.

Its easy to drop if you have treasure hunter 2.

Its also easy to buy if you can get to the San d'Oria auction house.

And no, it certainly isn't overrated, it is a very powerful spell (I pulled off a drain for 70 off a hill lizard in Valkurm Dunes yesterday). 140 HP difference for 21 MP. I wish I was at 1 HP so I could have seen the full effectiveness of the drain, instead of it just filling up my HP bar.

Only place I saw this spell available was at Windurst AH, going for about 19,000 gil, no lie; in Siren server. I didn't buy it because of the steep price, but, don't tell me I will have to travel all the way to San D'Oria, just to get it.... lol!
If anything I will travel there, buy 99 scrolls of it, and then get rich by selling it in Windurst!

I think this spell works when you got room to heal cause I notice that I drain 0 hp if my hp is full, but I can drain 25 if I get hurts

That's what I was wondering too. I'm a RDM/BLM, so my dark magic skill was VERY low when I started using this spell. I tried using drain once, and it took 0 HP. I figured, I must need to get my dark magic skill up for it to do any damage. However, I noticed on a differend monster that it did some damage (but still very little). The only thing I could think is that you must not be able to drain any HP if you're full. This is kind of crappy for BLMs in parties, since you usually don't get much damage done to you anyways... Good for soloing though (especially if you don't have a WHM or RDM sub)

this is what i did to get the Drain Scroll.

one you need to do more mission to enter the chateau.

2nd, i bought about 8k worth of bat wings, then i traded it to that guy till i gave him all of them. with the money he gave me for the bat wings, i bought more, then traded it to him again, and bought more with the money he gave and etc. i did this until i was no longer able to buy any more batwings after trading them all. that got me enough fame to get the scroll. you may need to spend a bit more, depending on your overall fame before doing this.

well for the fame, just kill bats anywhere and get their wings. for every 2 you can trade em to someone wherever the lumber guild is(i forgot the district) just look around for him and talk to people til you find him. every 2 wings give you 200 gil, a very easy way to earn cash if your a low lvl, and it'll give you fame in sandy.

# Jan 02 2004 at 9:41 AM Rating: Default
Well im so glad i didnt sold it =)

Im courrently working 2 main jobs

The drain spell simply rocks, and be cause my dark magic is always caped with my DRK, I usually drain 35-50 HP from the even matches ending with quite a lot of HP.

My DRK has 2 Physical earrings that gives him +50HP, 296 total, plus the drain. I only can cast 1 time be cause I ended with only 22MP but thats more than enough, forget about Decent chellanges, I have almost no down time with those. When fighting in party, its a very difrent story tho, usally draining less than 25 from the VT/IT and some times 50 (not often).

And with my BLM well, I think this spell is particulary more helful for DRK but messing around with Goblin leechers I drain about 115 HP from them at LV40 with 117 Dark magic level.

As a BLM who currently has the sub of WHM, I'll be doing this quest, but not for the spell itself. I can heal myself fine with my Cures (with less recharge time) - so looks like I could make a good 20,000. :)

As a Windurstian, I did about 15 or 16 various quests in San d'Oria and still didn't have enough fame (need fame 3). Eventually I tried trading large stacks of Bat Wings to Secodiand (F-6 N. San d'Oria; just as you enter the laborman's way from the south). Two or three stacks, I think it took, to get enough fame for the quest. Keep in mind that even if you have the fame, you still need access to the Chateau so you'll need to be at least doing your 2/3 mission to get in.
Once you get into the Chateau, go to the door on the right and down the hall to the stairs, which leads to the Dungeons (Bostineaux Oubliette). Go along the hallway and take the first right. You will find Novalmaugue patrolling that second hall.
Good hunting. Windurstian National Pride!!!

You need to complete 25 quests to qualify for the drain spell. And you need to be rank 2 to enter the chateu if you are a citizen of San D'Oria. There is a guy outside the chateu to the right, under a tree. His quest requires the same fame so it's a good benchmark
