I'm sorry the site is not there for folks to use. I apologise deeply.

It's proven a bit *TOO* popular and we have had a small bandwidth issue on the host.

We hope to have that solved and the site back up by tomorrow sometime, perhaps Sunday at the worst.

If there is no workabout I'll be lining up a new host. But I think we should be back at our URL tomorrow.

I'm very sorry that something folks are counting on is not there.

I've had to move to a new location, so it will take a bit longer to be back up. I'm hoping for Wednesday or Thursday now.

I'm very sorry.

edit: I can't spell :/

The guide is back up.... almost.

It is here:

http://174.122.203.138/~tforum/blu/BLUMain.html

The maps are missing. My backups of them were corrupted in an accident, so I have to wait until the site that the guide used to be on gets enough bandwith back so I can snag them off it (which should be after the month turns on Tuesday eve) Once I have them back I'll re-upload them quickly, and all will be well.

Sorry that its not all there. But this framework has all the basic info and just lacks the maps. And by weeks end things should back to normal. Things load a lot faster now to boot :-)

Thanks for holding on with me.

A few spells you have listed as not being soloable can be soloed easily as /bst.

Amplification
Level 71-72
Enter Halvung at C-8 in Wajaom Woodlands. There are about 5 bats along the path to the Black Puddings. All the bats will be DC-EM at level 72 A pair of Crawlers are along this path and they may con Tough at 72. They were both DC to me when I went but ffxiclopedia has the level range of them up to 75. At the end of the path is a gate with an open area and several Black Puddings and Trolls. You can take a pudding down with 2 bats fairly easy. I would suggest you don’t melee until the second pet because there is a lot of aggro around and you don’t want hate.

Radiant Breath
Level 74-75
Ifrit’s Cauldron has lizard and several bats beside the Wyvern’s. Don’t let the lizard die because he can last a lot longer than bats can. Just use Leave and let the bats hold the Wyvern until the lizard repops. Lizards can be hard to charm so use as much +chr gear as you can. It is probably easier to get this spell in a merit party or get some friends together in Riverne B01 but it is possible to solo and not too difficult.

Mind Blast
Level 73-74
G-8 in Arrapago Reef on the same map as Ilrusi Atoll has a camp with about 10 Leeches that are DC-EM at level 74. I haven’t actually tried this yet but there really isn’t any reason you couldn’t pull a Soulflayer back to this camp with a pet using silence pots and prism powders. With this many pets as long as you don’t mischarm you could kill almost anything.

Another slight correction is Cyranuce M Cutauleon isn’t a level 40 capped fight but this NM doesn’t use Radiant Breath instead he uses Dark Breath so you still cant learn it from him.

Hi guys i have something i need someone other than me to test..

I recently went hunting for Light of Penance in the jungles and came across something strange, well as you may or may may not know this is not their favorite spell to cast so was at it awhile and i got hit with alot of their other TP moves including words of bane. when i first got hit with it i was like oh great im cursed, but i still had like 200 mp and 630 hp so i said ***** it this aint so bad and i continued killing, i noticed that after i killed the next tonberry it was gone, so i say it lasted about 3 or 4 minutes. It was going kinda slow so i decided to start using refueling on every fight, then i got hit with words of bane again this time it only lasted like 10 seconds! i was lol ok wtf stupid weak tonberry lol. but then it happened again and again and again with stoneskin without stoneskin with blink and without blink the only difference was that i always had refueling up. since i was spell hunting and broke i used no food. Now the only other thing i can think of was that because i had always called for help before killing and had been throat stabed several times maybe tonberry hate had something to do with how long words of bane lasted idk but i guess i wanted to know if anybody else knew if refueling or haste speeds up the duration of words of bane curse.

I have yet to try this, but going along with the /bst, this would probably be the easiest way to learn Ram Charge. Especially the lower Rams won't be able to hit you with any real accuracy but they will be able to hit bunnies and any other mob in LTP or Konschtat Highlands. This is how I plan on doing mine.

Did a small update today.

Added new camps for metalic body (suggested above) and Dimensional Death (via e-mail)

Thanks for all the nice words, always appreciated.

eodtec, I'm curious, what are you using the guide for beyond BLU spells? I'm interested in seeing what other uses people are finding for it.

Very Big update today to Radiant Breath, from suggestions above and via mail.

Amplification also updated based on above suggestions.

Small change to weapon breaking info on FRip.

Left Mind Blast alone, as I'm unsure if you mean to pull the Flayers to the leech area from the first Reef map, or if there are other flayers where you indicate. If that is the case, how many and where?

I want to thank everyone for information. With all your help slowly we will fill in less popular spell camps, and make the Hunting Grounds better!

About Mind Blast, you can tio this. Two BLU's and a WHM or RDM can take the Soulflayers in the Mire on Heldelva Isle. Just make sure to silence them cause their Tier 3's can be pretty nasty.

Ok I just soloed Mind Blast as 73 blu/bst so I know it is possible and not too difficult either. The hardest part by far is the pull. The leech camp in Arrapago Reef at G-8 has 6 leeches. Convert all the leeches to EM if you are level 73, kill off the Qutrub in the middle of the leeches, and the skeleton on the boat before pulling. They are on a 16 minute repop timer so you will have plenty of time. After they are dead charm a leech and make sure to have both Metallic Body and Zephyr Mantle on before using your silent oil and prism powder. Just to the north of the Leech camp at G-6 are 2 Soulflayers. Get close enough to sick your pet on the Soulflayer and be ready because it will aggro you as soon as you use sick. As long as it dosent cast a level 3 –aga spell on you just stand there and let your pet get hate and hope that blink and stoneskin absorb the spell he casts. After your pet has hate use heal and use your silent oil and prism powder asap. If he cast poisonga 2 or if bio 3 doesn’t get absorbed by blink you will be in the yellow soon so get past the skeleton at G-7 fast. As long as you killed the skeleton on the boat its easy from here on just make sure not to lose hate as you pull the Soulflayer back to camp. When you get back to camp sick your leech on the Soulflayer and swap pets quick so your leeched doesn’t come uncharmed from the pull. Now just keep swapping pets until the Soulflayer dies. A leech can take 10-20% off the soulflayer depending on what spells it uses. As long as you don’t mischarm or ***** up the pull you can’t lose. I killed 3 Soulflayers like this and learned Mind Blast on the third one (First time any of them used it). At 75 blu/bst im going to try to solo Exuviation using the flies outside the Heavy Iron Gate and I will post how it goes.

Absolutely fantastic work.

one small nitpick however, the special note "You must face the target to have it take effect" regarding gaze attacks is not entirely correct.

You dont have to be facing the monster, the monster just has to be facing you. You can cast any spell facing any direction and it will always go toward the mob.

This is true when you SA a spell as well, you can be turned in any direction, as long as you're behind the mob.

Keep up the good work!

Hello folks!

The Mind Blast page has gotten a big update based on the excellent new camp advice given above, and a new party setup for the Camp#1 option offered.

A small adition to Healing Breeze was made from a suggestion on the Wiki.

I'll be correcting the issue with the Gaze attack function over time as I have call to edit those pages for other reasons. Massivenoneko is 100% correct, the mobs need to be looking at you, not you at them. I'll get them over time!

Once again, I want to thank everyone for adding to the Hunting Grounds. There are tons of ways to get almost all of our spells, and I want to offer folks as many options in the how to format as I can. People have been providing a lot of details with their descriptions, and it's made things very easy for me.

Thanks!

Love the site Myriads!

Managed to get Cannonball solo and Amplification on the campsites posted there.

Both were a pain but manageable. The one on Amplification seems to be accurate although, the part of the Flan's being resistant to Physical might need some working on though. I found them not very resistant to them but they were close to par with the 500-600 dmg that my heater breath was doing to them. I'm speaking mainly about Disservament and Frenetic Rip that I managed to keep for the Acc. Bonus in meleeing. I suppose I wasn't paying much attention to my overal melee dmg but it was still decent enough.

Hope to solo Verticle Cleave soon. If I manage to do it without Exuviation like your posting states from another player, I'll tell you. :D
