worth of a spell

Stonega II, imo is not worth picking up right away. I am a level 70 blm and I still don't have the spell yet. There are just too many other things that are more useful to a blm than this spell. Not to say that it isn't worth it. It is perfect for 40 cap areas such as bcnm and Tavnazian areas. But here are some things to consider:

First, you will more than likely be leveling in areas like crawler's nest and quicksand caves. There are areas that you could use the spell safely, but mostly it is cramped and you are not going to be using gravitation/scisson a whole lot. And by the time that you move on, you will be on waterga ii.

Next, how much gear and spells are you getting? Many will just spend CP and get CC gear (basically being free) and quest Warp II. This makes it relatively easy to save up for the spell. At this point, there are not a whole lot of high ticket items so purchasing it might not be a bad idea.

What will you be using it for? BCNM is good and other 40 cap areas, it will be your strongest elemental spell. Granted, compared to the other elemental spells of the same tier, it is weak, but at 40 it is the strongest you have. Anyway, besides that, the only other use I see for it is farming. At that level, you are kind of limited to where you can do it. Not to mention you don't want to blow 109 mp in one sitting when 71 on firaga II will do the same thing with less mp.

Personally, I skipped the spell because I couldn't afford it at the time, and I have had no problems with not having it. That is not to say that I will not get it. I am one of those guys who will be leveling rdm and drk to a high enough level so that I will know EVERY black magic spell. It is all in a matter of how you play. If you BCNM 40 alot and you need it, or if you feel that you need the spell to "Be all that you can be", and can afford it, by all means, get it. Just remember that 10-20 levels later, you will be needing a minimum of 2 elemental staves (dark and ice...of course ice isn't necessary but it definitely helps), sleepga II (for ZM if nothing else), and a black cloak. (psh 10-20 levels...but if you get good parties that 10-20 levels come in a hurry.) Right now, most of the gear that I have on my wish list is 600k+ a piece. A 120-200k spell is not worth buying. I have some ls friends that need tests, that is where I will be getting my spell.

imo ur full of it, i was MBing for 400-450 with this last night at lvl 40, highest MB capable at that lvl. since there is a shrtage of certain jobs, not always can you find a distortion SC combo. we switched to scission and was doing more dmg with the stonega 2 mb than with blizzaga and distortion.

Ive never had to use this spell as a level 70 BLM. In my honest opinion, Black Mages shouldnt be using -ga spells at this level because of the risk involved. By the time it becomes safe(r) for Black Mages to use -ga spells in Magic Bursts they will have access to more powerful and eficient spells like Blizzaga II. Also, most of the mobs around level 40 are Earth Based and will resist Stonega.

high price -.-
# Oct 25 2005 at 4:42 AM Rating: Decent
it drops from a orc-NM, and its high lvl, 75 might be able to solo it, but not certainly, so this is the reason for the high price... the orc spawn each 10 min, but droprate isn't very good
Where does this spell drop?

Does anyone know where Stonega 2 drops (besides the AH). Compared to the other blm spells before this, Stonega 2 is a big jump in price and I'd hate to spend that much gil for something I could farm.
Damn Alexander

PT did an earth based SC, I did 414 damage with 44+33 INT (Hume, Lv40) on a beetle at crawler's nest. Needless to say everyone was impressed.

I paid 200k for it. -_-;

This spell is about 80k on Kujata server last time I checked. I skipped it after a level 74 BLM friend told me he has used it about 2 times, hehe. I really mean no offense but 50-80k that isn't that bad for a spell. All the spells from level 50-60 ran/will run about 750-800k >.< kinda makes 50-80k seem like loose change, lol. Damn this job is getting expensive........ :/
Too expensive.

70k on Quetz. I'M BUYING IT! Blm should have all available elemental spells. Come on, it's 50k. It's not 300k like a scroll of Erase.

If you're not prepared to spend some cash on spells, you might as well not level past 50.

WHere do you get Stonega II? I don't want to buy it from the AH. Last I looked it was around 70K.
to much

It goes for 50k even on gilgamesh >.<
Worth it?

It's 65k on Fairy. I'm sure it would be nice for bursting on BCNM 40, but that could also get some more +INT equipment... I'm putting this on hold until I'm using better equipment. What do you think, worth buying or better to skip over for more INT?

price is correct, because the drops comes from a lv 75 NM inside Davoi's Monastic Cavern, and not all that commonly either. this damned scroll has jumped to 60k on bahamut >.<.
Rare spell?

Hello. I see this spell in the auction for about 30k, while for example Stonega III costs about 6k. This spell is also marked as rare. I was wondering if it's a drop, or just comes from some really far off place? I'd like to get it myself instead of wasting that much money on it, if possible. Thanks
