Obtaining the Spell
Minimum Blue Mage Level Needed To Acquire Spell: Level 38
Blood Saber is best hunted in Gusgen Mines.

This spell could be soloed long before you reach 38 and can learn it. At 38 no party is needed for the Gusgen Mines camp.

Bring Eye Drops for Black Clouds Blind effect, though that is very optional.

Skeleton Hunting Grounds Camp #1
Name Level Location
Skeleton Warrior 15-17 Gusgen Mines
Ghoul 20-27 Gusgen Mines
Wendigo 26-30 Gusgen Mines
Wight 29-34 Gusgen Mines

Proceed to Gusgen Mines. This makes a better camp then the various low level skeletons in the starter areas because here the Skeletons are always up, and not only out at night. There are a lot of targets to choose from, several camps are circled above. The deeper you go in the mine the stronger the Skeletons you will meet. You shouldn't have to go too deep.

There are many low level Skeletons in starter zones which only come out at night between 20:00 - 4:00. Easily killed at the level you can learn.

There are also many very high skeletons about also but with so many easy targets why bother?

 

Special notes about the spell a Blue Mage may like to know
Can I solo it? Yes. By the time you can learn it, you will have no trouble in camp #1
Do I need any special items? No. Eye Drops for blindness are nice, but not needed.
Do Skeltons like to use the move? They use it often.
The Spell's drain is calculated by the formula (Your Blue Skill x 0.11)x3.5 x number of monsters in range. It is not effective on the undead.
