|Special Notes on Monster and it's TP Moves|
The status effects that Scorpions can inflict tend to last long.
The Damage moves can hurt badly if you are close to the Monsters level.
|Obtaining the Spell|
|Minimum Blue Mage Level Needed To Acquire Spell: Level 55|
|Death Scissors is best hunted in the Maze of
This spell can be safely soloed with no issues when you can learn it at 55.
Bringing Antidotes for poison can help a little bit. A way to cure Paralysis is a plus. A low damage weapon to feed the Scorpion TP helps.
The Best place to hunt Scorpion class mobs is in the Maze of Shakhrami. Between the Maze and Labyrinth Scorpion spawns you will have twenty Scorpions to farm for your spell.
At Level 54 when you can learn the spell, you will face no aggro in the Maze of Shakhrami, and both types of the Scorpions will pose no trouble to Solo. Grab a low damage weapon, and start to beat on Scorpions until one gives you your spell. The Scorpions can link, so watch out for that.
There are no shortage of other Scorpions around the world. All of the lower ones make good targets, but often there are very few to kill in the areas, making them less then the best camps. The Higher ones will take a party to kill, so they are not recommended.
