Special Notes on Monster and it's TP Moves

Riddle is very annoying, and Fire Breath can seriously hurt if you are near the monsters level.


Obtaining the Spell
Minimum Blue Mage Level Needed To Acquire Spell: Level 62 with Magus Jubbah equipped, 65 without.
Heat Breath is best hunted in Eastern Altepa Desert.

This spell can be safely soloed with no issues when you can learn it at 62.

Bringing Eye Drops for blindness can help a little bit. A low damage weapon to feed the Manticore TP helps.

Manticore Hunting Grounds Camp #1
Name Level Location
Lesser Manticore 47-49 Eastern Altepa Desert

Once you zone into Eastern Altepa Desert, head to the west side of the zone. There are ten Manticores scattered along the edges of the zone, wandering about. They are easy to find.

You should have no problems soloing the Lesser Manticore by the time you can learn the spell. Feed the Manticore TP, wait to see the move, and hopefully learn it! Rinse and repeat as needed.


Manticore Hunting Grounds Camp #2
Name Level Location
Desert Manticore 53-57 Western Altepa Desert
Labyrinth Manticore 71-74 Labyrinth of Onzozo
Valley Manticore 72-74 Valley of Sorrows
Greater Manticore 76-79 Cape Teriggan

There are higher level Manticore to be found all about the world. As they are higher level, they will be more difficult to kill, and require help or a party. Because there are the excellent lower level camps, these are not recommended.

The damage from the spell is equal to your HP/2.
