All you guys say you have killed it on lightsdays and never mention where they spawn. Except for the obvious middle and upper towers. How bout some spawn points???
Spawn points?

We all see elementals when we're not looking for them, but to save time does anyone know if they spawn in specific locations like almost every mob in the game? And if so, what are the map positions?
I need several stacks of these for smithing and would like to save myself having to pay 5k a stack which is the current going rate in Jeuno on Remora.

Took me long enough to get a good picture of the first one I've ever seen, throughout my travels in Vana'Diel:

Enjoy! =^-^=
At 75 BLM

At 75 Blm you just have to pick your prey. A tough Ele is very doable at 75. Also anything that can be slept and bound is doable if you can play blm well....

Correction on the level range: It is at least 76 on them. The ones in sky con T-VT to me (75). I've solo'd for 200-240 XP on these guys. They are always up in sky if you didn't know (every elemental is)

these things are fun, Im a 52 war subbing Nin and i Can take these roving discoballs on If i have almost full hp. Agressor dose help a grate deal, espically if you need to haul out the trusty Warriors 2hour and you have a near by friend to haste you. that can be upwards of 30+ damage a whack
#Lobivopis, Posted: Mar 04 2005 at 8:18 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) A full alliance of lvl 30's would get raped.
#REDACTED, Posted: Mar 04 2005 at 4:51 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) -.- Yes thats party can handle one considering ai just OWNED one as a lv 42blm/21whm

Without DRKs and BLMs (more importantly BLM), You simply wont beat an elemental like this before your whole group reaches the 50 range.
They take VERY little physical dmg, and will use -ga spells to rip through you. They attack fast, but fortunatly dont hit too hard.

Edit: sorry I forgot these can spawn in Qufim as well. You may have better luck on them, as they are significantly weaker versions.

I am able to solo the ones in Lower Delkfutt's Tower at lv. 50 DRK/THF on Lightsday Double light weather (Very very dangerous. I usually have to use my 2-hr if this is the case.) I am only able to do this because of Drain, Aspir, and Poisonga (To remove blink).

I was messing around in Quiffim and I happened to notice aurora weather and immediatly scrambled to claim one of these beauties. I caught one and killed it, two clusters. It was nearing the end of lightsday and I'm wondering if that had anything to do with it. I see Aurora weather so seldom so if there's a pattern, be really nice to know.

Oh yeah, 55 paladin. Long fight as paladin solo fights tend to be but I was in no danger. Thing was easy.
got one

When does a Auroras / Stellar Glare come out and what is Stellar Glare? Is this the only place for light weather =(?

Stellar glare is double light weather. i find that auroras/stellar glares usually happen on lightsday, but i have also seen it on other days. like most weather, no real pattern to it

I found this while looking up pics of summons someone else had taken... If you scroll down the page, you'll see a much better pic of a Light Elemental without the annoying white snow in the background.

I've killed a total of two Light Elementals and seen several myself. They are simply the most brilliant, awe-inspiring things in all of Vana'diel. Dark Elementals look cool, but nothing like a Light Elemental. Someone should hang one up and use it as a disco ball! XD

They love to use Dia, Diaga, Banish II, Stoneskin, and other buffs. As a RDM58, these things are cake. Dagger + Haste + Any enelement causes crying Light Elemental. Just keep your buffs up (they DO hit pretty hard), and use Drain/Aspir/Energy Drain often. In fact, the Drain/Aspir/Energy Drain combo works great for any elemental, just make sure you use the proper enelement.

Light clusters are worth about 5k on Asura.

I just wanted to say that the picture for the Light Elemental does little to no honor to what these things actually look like. I just fought a few of these last night and they're the most awe-aspiring things I've ever seen. Ever seen the PS2 opening screen with the little blue lights sweeping across slowly in a predefined yet hypnotizing pattern? Yeah... imagine that with a band of multi-faceted and multi-colored crystals floating in the middle. Yeah, it's awesome lookin'.
Btw, these things love to spam Dia/Diaga and buffs (Protect, Shell, Stoneskin (yes Stoneskin), Regen). Just Silence/Paralyze them, you won't have any trouble after that.

The PS2 system clock is beautiful, too. Go into the options screen and push square.

Us DarkKnights do pretty well against them also.
Drain, Aspir, and Shadow of Death makes for very unhappy Elemental. ;-)

I killed one at level 40 BLM, so it can be done. I didn't have any buffs on me at all. All I did was my usual Fire I, Aero II, Water II, Stone II spam. Got it to half its HP, by then I was in the orange/red, so I used Manafont and started spamming Cure II on myself. After I was near full, I started spamming nukes again and killed it without much difficulty.
Large Fun!

They are no problem for a 57 blm, whack at them to get tp and use starburst(Dark dmg), blasting with higher tier magic. Start with blink/stone because they hit through our puny mage armor if the fight takes too long.
RE: Large Fun!
# Nov 08 2004 at 11:25 AM Rating: Decent
Starburst doesn't always do Dark elemental damage, it could do Light elemental damage. It's random which one though.
