Meltdown can deal serious damage if the Doll uses it near full HP. The damage moves can hurt.


Obtaining the Spell
Minimum Blue Mage Level Needed To Acquire Spell: Level 34
Blitzstrahl is best hunted in Lower Delkfutt's Tower.

This spell can be soloed starting in the low 30's, though 34 is needed to learn. No party is needed for the Lower Delkfutt's Tower camp.

Bring Sneak and Invisibility spells or potions to reach camp if your level requires. A Stun spell should be equipped to stop Meltdown.

Doll Hunting Grounds Camp #1
Name Level Location
Chaos Idol 28-30 Lower Delkfutt's Tower
Panzer Doll 31-32 Middle Delkfutt's Tower
Jagd Doll 33-34 Middle Delkfutt's Tower

Proceed to Lower Delkfutt's Tower's First floor at J-8. There are three Chaos Idols in the small room that can be farmed for the spell. Dolls do not link, but WILL aggro to magic. So be sure to pull your target into the hall away from the others, so you may safely cast. If the Doll readies Meltdown, stun it quickly. Note that there is sight and sound aggro on the way to camp. Take proper precautions if you need. 

Warning! There is a NM Doll named Tyrant that can spawn in this camp. This NM is of much higher level then the Chaos Idols and will easily kill a Blue Mage in their 30's. It does not link to the other Dolls, but will aggro to magic. Take care to see if Tyrant is about when you go huntign here!

If you need more targets, there are four more Chaos Idols on the tower's second floor in the I-6/J-6 area.


Doll Hunting Grounds Camp #2
Name Level Location
Living Statue 37-39 Beaucedine Glacier
Drone 41-43 Fei'Yin
Talos 53-55 Fei'Yin
Iron Maiden 64-69 Temple of Uggalepih
Cursed Puppet 65-69 Ro'Maeve
Groundskeeper 75-78 Ru'Aun Gardens

There are many other mid and high level Dolls in other zones where one can learn the spell also. With the excellent low annoyance options in Lower Delkfutt's Tower, these are not recommended.


Special notes about the spell a Blue Mage may like to know
Can I solo it? Yes. With proper care you should have no problems by your low 30's in camp #1
Do I need any special items? Yes, a way to sneak and invisible yourself is needed to get to camp. Have Head Butt equipped to stun Meltdown.
Do Dolls like to use the move? With so many TP moves it can take a bit to see.
The Spell's stun seems to land in most cases.
