Special Notes on Monster and it's TP Moves

Clionids seem to be RDM and favor Water based spells. 

Different Cliond may use different TP moves and 'colors' of magic.  


Obtaining the Spell
Minimum Blue Mage Level Needed To Acquire Spell: Level 68 with Magus Jubbah equipped, 71 without.
Acrid Stream is best hunted in Abyssea-Konschtat and Abyssea La Theine

This spell can be soloed starting Level 75 with some care.

Are special items are needed? Yes, you must have the key item to enter an Abyssea zone. Also Setting spells that can Dispel and Silence is a must.


Clionid Hunting Grounds Camp #1
Name Level Location
Ley Clionid 75-77? Abyssea-Konschtat


Once you enter Abyssea-Konschtat and trade your stone for time, the camp is very easy to reach. Just follow the path, turn right and head to K-11. Nothing on the way will aggro.

In this area several Clionids wander. They do not seem to aggro. With a range of 75 to 77 odds are you can find a DC or EM to fight. The fights are pretty simple. Stun all aga and high tier spells the Clionid trys to cast, and pound away with your sword. They LOVE to use Acrid Stream, and it can hit for several hundred (300-400) HP of damage, so take care. 

The Clionids will open with a spell, often a ga, so shadows will probably be wiped off the top if you do not stun fast. 

The Clionid can cast ice spikes. You want to dispel those as soon as you can. They can cripple you.

The biggest annoyance in getting the spell is the timed aspect of the zone. 

Clionid Hunting Grounds Camp #2
Name Level Location
 Veld Clionid 75-77? Abyssea La Theine


Another Great camp is Just inside Abyssea La Theine.  Once you exit the gate, there are many Veld Clionid around, far more then in camp #1. And closer also, so this is the better camp. 

The fights should be handled as in camp #1. You should have no issues with some care. 

Special notes about the spell a Blue Mage may like to know
Can I solo it? Yes you can. It's not a hard fight. 
Do I need any special items? Just the key item to enter the zone.
Do Clionid like to use the move? Yes they do, infact it's often all you will see them use. 
The Spell is a magical water based conal type. The Magical Defense down seems to be about 10%
Acrid Stream can be paired with Empty Thrash or Demoralizing Roar to create the Double Attack Trait
