best hunted in the Outer Horutoto Ruins.
This spell can be soloed starting around level 8. No party is needed.
No special medicines are needed.
Proceed to the Lilac tower located at H-3 in East Sarutabaruta.
Once in the Lilac tower there are many 'Two of' and 'Three of' Cardians of various suits to either side. The locations are circled in red on the map above. Some spawn in the small side rooms. The Cardians can aggro and will link! Be sure you are of level to deal with multiple mobs. Some NM Shadows can spawn in the side rooms and are of much higher level. Take care when opening doors.
For some Blue Mages, the low level Cardians in Camp #1 can be annoying. It takes a long time for them to build TP to WS, and even a few hits can kill them. There are some stronger ones easily reached in Camp #2 that can take more of a beating. It is suggested you be level 16 or higher to use this camp.
Proceed to the tower located at F-11 in West Sarutabaruta.
Once in the tower there are many 'Two of' to 'Six of' Cardians of various suits in each of the small rooms.
They are scattered as follows:
a: 2 Fives, b: 3 Fives, c: 2 Sixes, d: 3 Twos, e: 3 Fours, f: 3 Sixes, g: 2 Twos, h: 3 Threes, i: 2 Threes
There are even higher Cardians in the secret area on the East side of the map behind the cracked wall. They are very high level with respect to the level you will be when you wish to hunt this spell. Avoid them.
The Cardians can aggro and will link! Be sure you are of level to deal with multiple mobs if you choose to hunt here. It can be very dangerous.
It is suggested that you kill off the lower 2's and 3's as you advance to the 4's which will be T to a level 16 when you might hope to hunt here.

|Do Cardians like to use the move? Yes, with only two moves to choose from, they pull it out often.|
|This Spell is a must have for all Blue Mages, and will be one of your most used for many levels. Cardians may be the forgetten monster family by all other jobs, but Blue Mages forever thank them for Bludgeon.|

|Bludgeon can be paired with Smite of Rage to create the Undead Killer Trait.|
