Hello Folks,

I have updated a few pages on the Hunting grounds.

The biggest change was an addition of a new camp for Frenetic Rip, adding in the ability to learn the spell from campaign mobs.

I cross linked the Blank Gaze and Magic Fruit Pages as suggested by the poster above.

Body Slam got some more detail on the WotG Mission camp.

I hope that everyone is learning spells with ease, and thank you for all the support I see.

The change you made for those specific spells is the right direction, but I think he meant it more as an example of what needs to be added to ALL spells that link with other spells for traits. You got the first one down perfect though :)

Blank gaze and Magic fruit are not related by trait combination.
They're related because you get both of them on the same kind of mob (and you can use the same camps in fact).

Thats not the point at all.

Edit: Lol, after rereading the post that started this, he did mean spells that come from the same mob...which is only Opo for now, unless you count certain beastmen, which I don't because they are 2 separate models. Anyway, I think it would be nice if any spell referenced on a page was linked.

See, it was the point.

Now that every spell mentionned would turn out to be a link, that wouldn't be bad either ;)

It's a good idea, but its also a lot of editing. If I get motivated I'll start to do it.

Just did a few of the Moblin Maze Mongers basic mazes, and we got Tauri two out of three times. If it's true that the mobs spawn T to the lowest level in the pt, I can see this being a great place to learn stuff like Frightful Roar. We got experience from them, so I don't see any reason why you shouldn't be able to learn spells in the mazes.

Unfortunately, the only spell I have left to learn is Body Slam (DAMN YOU DRAGONS) so I can't test this.

a couple of friends and I did a few basic mazes as well and I noticed that the mobs were cluster type and did refuling...well my GF is a BLU and her magic and sword skills were going up on these mobs and I figured she might have a crack at learning the spell...also on another note does anyone have any idea of advise for her to make it easy for her to learn Magic Fruit? she is like 0/85+...feel bad for her having to pummle so many opo-opos with her warp cudgel..she is smashing away near the lowlands outpost and she is 56 and has her AF hands...I have taken her to Ifrit's Cauldron and we found that they do it more often near the outpost in Yuhtunga Jungle...can anyone help? :oops:

Spells can be learned in the maze, but you have to be fairly lucky to get the right mob types....except for the Dragon rune.
With the dragon rune, I always get the dragon mobs for as at least 1 of the groups (sometimes more). And taking a lower level player along makes them quite easy to farm - though don't bring a player that's TOO low or you'll be killing the dragons too quickly for them to use Body Slam.

I don't have the Arcana or Demons rune to check if they will always spawn Clusters and Tauri, but if they do, that's another couple spells that have become easier to obtain for mid-level blue mages.

Have something to add but I don't want to double post, so I'm editing my last post:

First of all, looks like MMM is not going to be a source for Body Slam, but it is good for things like Frightful Roar, Awful Eye, and other CoP or level cap restricted mobs.

Secondly, I just did Body Slam (FINALLY 105/105) with BLU THF and WHM. One death, from overbuffing and Nullsong. Other than that, it went extremely smoothly. Easier to put together than SMNx3, too.

I've noticed the site address seems to be failing, but this URL is working out OK:

http://www.skot23.com/blue/BLUMain.html

I'm a bit afraid of replacing that in the wiki and then later on seeing the new one coming back and this one disappearing - maybe Myriads can say something about this?...

Site is up and working fine.

It does get filtered in some countries and colleges due to the server but it's otherwise up and fine.

Loona's post link is an old copy of myriads site.
I check the body slam spell for example and there is no mention of the mission in the past to learn it.

I may have found an error that is still on the up to date page though.

Since december update (or it is the one before ?) Reraise can't be dispelled.
Not by dispel, nor dispelga, nor mob moves dispelling.
I haven't tested nullsong, since then (or not enough to remember) but I think it won't remove Reraise also.
It is said in the solo strat that Reraise can be remove...
