Obtaining the Spell
Minimum Blue Mage Level Needed To Acquire Spell: Level 6
Helldive is best hunted in North or South Gustaberg or East or West Sarutabaruta.

This spell can be soloed starting at level 6 when you can learn it. No party is needed for the Gustaberg or Sarutabaruta Camps.

No special items needed.

Bird Hunting Grounds Camp #1
Name Level Location
Carrion Crow 2-5 East Sarutabaruta
Vulture 2-6 North Gustaberg
Vulture 2-6 South Gustaberg
Carrion Crow 2-6 West Sarutabaruta
Akbaba 9-13 La Theine Plateau
Akbaba 9-13 Tahrongi Canyon
Jubjub 15-18 Meriphataud Mountains
Screamer 15-18 Jugner Forest

Just head out from Bastok or Windurst and kill Birds. Nothing special.

If you choose to get the spell in La Theine, or Tahrongi, you should be at least level 11 or higher. There can be other aggro in and on the way to the zones.

There are many other Bird class monsters all over the world. They are all higher in level, and many will require a party, or skilled help to kill. With so many easy low level options, they are not recommended.
