Obtaining the Spell
Minimum Blue Mage Level Needed To Acquire Spell: Level 10.
Blood Drain is best hunted in King Ranperre's Tomb.

This spell can be soloed as soon as you can learn it.

No special items are needed.

Giant Bat Hunting Grounds Camp #1
Name Level Location
Mouse Bat 3-6 King Ranperre's Tomb
Grave Bat 11-13 King Ranperre's Tomb

When hunting this spell there are so many low level Giant Bats to choose from, that picking a best camp is difficult. King Ranperre's Tomb works well, because in the area marked above, there are a ton of Giant Bat Spawns that can all be easily reached and soloed, and they are up all the time, not only at night, like the open area Giant Bats. The Giant Bats do aggro and link, so take care.

Grab a Giant Bat and pull it to a safe camp, then bop it with a low damage weapon for TP until it gives up the spell. Simple!


Giant Bat Hunting Grounds Camp #2
Name Level Location
Mouse Bat 2-4 Zeruhn Mines
Fledermaus 3-5 North/South Gustaberg
Mouse Bat 3-6 East/West Ronfaure
Cheiroptera 3-6 Ghelsba Outpost
Blade Bat 4-6 Inner Horutoto Ruins
Blade Bat 4-7 Outer Horutoto Ruins
Blade Bat 4-7 Ranguemont Pass
Acro Bat 8-10 La Theine Plateau
Cheiroptera 8-10 Fort Ghelsba
Poison Bat 8-11 La Theine Plateau
Black Bat 15-18 Meriphataud Mountains/Pashhow Marshlands
Stealth Bat 15-18 Yughott Grotto
Specter Bat 15-20 Carpenters' Landing
Tomb Bat 17-19 King Ranperre's Tomb
Battle/Hognosed/Plague/Star Bat 17-20 Inner Horutoto Ruins/Ordelle's Caves/King Ranperre's Tomb/Valkurm Dunes
Giant Bat 20-22 Valkurm Dunes
Combat 20-23 Maze of Shakhrami/Outer Horutoto Ruins
Moon Bat 23-26 Rolanberry Fields
Midnight Wings 20-23 Rolanberry Fields/Sauromugue Champaign

You can spell farm the lower level Giant Bats just as well, but many in the outside zones only pop at night, and it will be hard to feed them TP without killing them. There are many higher level Giant Bats also, but given the massive numbers of low level camps, why take the risk? Not Recommended.
