Special Notes on Monster and it's TP Moves

None of the Opo-opo damage moves are overly horrid if your level is higher then the monster. When close in level Vicious Claw can hurt badly.


Obtaining the Spell
Minimum Blue Mage Level Needed To Acquire Spell: Level 28
Blank Gaze is best hunted in Yuhtunga Jungle.

This spell can be soloed starting in the upper 30's. No party is needed for the Yuhtunga Jungle camp.

Eye Drops, Antidotes, and Remedies, are recommended, as the TP status effects can cause trouble. A low damage weapon to feed the monster TP helps.

Some Blue Mages believe that if you have a buff up there is a greater chance that Blank Gaze will be used, as it gives the Opo-opo a reason to use the spell. This is unproven.

Opo-opo Hunting Grounds Camp #1
Name Level Location
Young Opo-opo 34-36 Yuhtunga Jungle

From the outpost, while facing away from it, drop into the first hole to the left. Exit the small cave and you will be in your camp which covers the F-11 area noted above. When hunting the spell in your upper 30's be aware that Opo-opos can link based on sight. The Sahagin in the area can also aggro. Take care.


Opo-opo Hunting Grounds Camp #2
Name Level Location
Coastal Opo-opo 36-39 Bibiki Bay ~ Purgonorgo Isle
Young Opo-opo 40-44 Yhoator Jungle
Temple Opo-opo 51-54 Temple of Uggalepih
Old Opo-opo 61-65 Ifrit's Cauldron
Bullbeggar 78-80 Den of Rancor

There are higher level Opo-opos all about the world, but most will take more work then the Camp #1 Opo's, or are an annoying trip like the Coastal Opo-opos on Purgonorgo Isle. So they are not recommended.


Special notes about the spell a Blue Mage may like to know
Can I solo it? Yes. With some care you should have no problems by level 38 in camp #1
Do I need any special items? Eye Drops, Antidotes, and Remedies, are recommended. A low damage weapon to feed TP, and a warp item to save a long walk home are nice.
Do Opo-opos like to use the move? They have a lot of moves, so it can take some time to see it. This is not one of their favorites. Be prepared to not always see it over a fight.
Magic Fruit can also be learned from Opo-opos.
The spell is a Gaze attack. The target must be facing you for the spell to take effect. Each use removes one enemy buff.
