Hey just wondering, whereabouts in Valkurm do these things spawn? And what would they check to a level 31?
# Dec 21 2004 at 11:21 AM Rating: Decent
Is there any specific place that these can be found or do they just wander around during the hot weather? My friend (32WHM/18BLM) and I (20RDM/10BLM) want to fight these, but can never find them...

where are the lowest level fire elementals found?

The lowest level Fire Elemntals appear in the Valkurm Dunes and the Meriphataud Mountains. The only problem is that it rarely heat waves in these places. The other problem with the dunes is that the prime spot that they spawn is at a gobbie camp north of the Emp's spawning area, so several high-level players rush up to kill them. I don't think many hunt in the Mountains though.

original post refers to undead, not elementals.

yes elementals agro magic.

undead agro low hp, and no, it is not corrected with deoderize.

check for yourself, get yourself in yellow hp, go to eldieme necropolis and sneak and deoderize yourself. walk to an agroing undead mob (ep+, use dc+ to be sure) and see if it attacks. it will cuz you have low hp, with or without deoderize.
Scary moment

Okey leveling my war in the dunes fighting a crab and the hazy weather icon was up. I shout a warning to the mages and the summoner bout being on the lookout for the elemental and not to use magic. Ok as I was tanking this thing comes behind me resembling an elemental! I was scared but it was a Fire Spirit!

For to-be summoners
# Sep 17 2004 at 6:39 AM Rating: Decent
Okay, all of you people trying to be summoners....

First of all, if you need help with the quest, post in the Summoner job forum. Clutters the boards less. :P

Second, get the fire element in Meriphataud Mountains. It's where I got it while only passing through to go to Jeuno for some reason or another.

Third, NOTHING aggros by smell. Smell is used as a pursuant sense. The mobs that use smell will aggro you by anything else, but if you get out of range, it will still track you down with its sense of smell.....use that to your advantage and make big zig-zags to slow down the mob (not to close together, though). This especially works well if Flee or Chocobo Marzuka is active.

Spawn Points in Dunes
# Sep 12 2004 at 6:57 PM Rating: Decent
Now, I have camped Fire elementals in The Dunes for quite a long time, Just for fun mostly, while I PL friend's PTs, And I have only found 2 total Fire Elemental spawn points and they are the Gob Campfires, There is 1 North of the Emperor Spawn (Not sure of pos >.<) and the gob fire camp just south of the Zone from the Highlands... Hope this clears some things up! ^^
Mountains Spawn
# Aug 04 2004 at 7:23 AM Rating: Decent
In the Mountains, I found two of these near the NM spawn points. 6 clusters on two kills, can't beat that. Just be careful when hunting due to the NMs. ^^
spawn points?
# Jul 12 2004 at 3:33 PM Rating: Decent
where exactly are the spawn points for this one?
Weather report

To anyone trying to do the SMN quest... find the weather report NPCs in nearby towns and listen to what they have to say. It really helps, for instance, if the NPC in Rabao tells you that there will be a heat wave in 3 days time, rather than you sitting around knowing nothing.

You can get Fire element in either Valkrum Dunes or Altepa Desert

You can get Ice element from Beaucidine Glacier / Xarcabard

You do NOT need to see an elemental, just zone into the area when the element is there. I camped Dunes for an hour while doing other things and that's how I got fire.
#Anonymous, Posted: May 31 2004 at 2:31 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) is there anyone out there that knows why the fire and ice elements will not appear for the summoner quest i really need them!!! please respond to this message!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!![Green][/Green][pre][/pre]

fire: most common: ifrit's cauldren
ice: beaudecine glacier
RE: fire elemental
# Apr 02 2005 at 10:58 AM Rating: Decent
Ifrit's Cauldron wouldn't work, seeing as how the cutscenes from elements for summoner quest only if you are in an Outdoor zone (Eastern Altepa Desert for instance), not dungeon type areas like Ifrit's Cauldron.

Does anyone know where these things spawn in Eastern Altepa? If not the map coordinates general indicators where one was seen?

Does anyone know where in dunes these spawn? I've only seen the dunes have fire weather once and before I could give it a good look, it was gone.

They spawn just north of where Emperor spawns.

Does anyone have any input on these two questions:

Where do have you found the most fire elementals?

Where have you found the lowest level fire elementals?

I ran across two of them (out of linking distance ^^) in Meriphtaud Mountains yesterday on the way back from Sanctuary of Zi'Tah. As a level 54BLM/27WHM, had no trouble at all, using about 450 of my 690MP. They conned Too Weak.
Approximate map location: (I-7) or (H-7)
2 clusters apiece without Treasure Hunter.
Hope that helps! ^^

I dunno where there's the most but I got owned by one last night in yuhtunga as soon as fire weather came this thing spawned.
I hadn't seen it (down acliff from where I was) and I had just put deod/sneak/invis on and a minute later it comes and kills me. Even with all my buffs on it could still find me cuz it had aggrod me casting a minute earlier and it came and found me.

They spawn near the gobbie campfires in dunes, if you have a level 30+ they are EP and I can defeat them as a 30whm/15blm no problem. They dont spawn often, but if your looking to up your craft level, and aren't a high level character, this is the best place to get fire crystals. Hope this helps ^^

1. Altepa Desert
2. Probabaly Valkum Dune
