|Special Notes on Monster and it's TP Moves|
None of the Golem moves are too bad, but Golems do hit hard.
|Obtaining the Spell|
|Minimum Blue Mage Level Needed To Acquire Spell: Level 82 with Magus Jubbah equipped, 85 without.|
|Heavy Strike is best hunted
in Abyssea - Uleguerand.
This spell can be safely soloed at 90.
You will need a way to sneak and invisible or cruor to conflux warp to camp.
There is a great
camp in Abyssea - Uleguerand. There are many Golums there, and safe
places to fight them.
Be warned a NM Golum pops randomly among the other Golum here, and he is a rude surprise to pull by accident. I wager that the skilled BLU/NIN out there can solo him, but if you are not ready it's dirt nap time.
There are five spawns in the zone, all are noted on the map above. Two of the spawn points are close at I-9/J-9 on a small plateau. Respawn on these Golems is not too bad. So waiting for more is not a big issue.
Get to camp, and pull a golem to it. Feed TP, See Move, hopefully learn the spell. There is no risk at all for a 90 BLU other then killing the mob too fast.
In Fei'Yin there are Nine Ore Golem spawns on the first floor. They are a decent option.
Feeding TP to the Golem with your low damage weapon. See, and learn!
There are Golums all over, but most are annoying to walk to. But if you like one of the above zones, the kills are easy.
|Special notes about the spell a Blue Mage may like to know|
|Can I solo it? Yes, you should be able to with a tiny bit of care.|
|Do I need any special items? Just a way to sneak and invisible yourself to camp. A low damage weapon to feed the monster TP is useful.|
|Do Golem like to use the move? They like the Crystal Weapon moves a lot more due to there being four types of them, so it can take a long time to see Heavy Strike.|
|The damage from the spell is very impressive. It's like a high level bludgeon.|
|Heavy Strike can be paired with ??? to create the ??? Trait.|
