Obtaining the Spell
Minimum Blue Mage Level Needed To Acquire Spell: Level 57
Hydro Shot is best hunted in Yuhtunga Jungle.

This spell can be soloed starting in the 40's, but you must be at least level 57 to learn it. No party is needed for the Yuhtunga Jungle camp.

No special items are needed. A low damage weapon to feed the monster TP helps.

Sahagin Hunting Grounds Camp #1
Name Level Location
Creek Sahagin (MNK) 34-38 Yuhtunga Jungle
River Sahagin (WHM) 34-38 Yuhtunga Jungle
Stream Sahagin (BRD) 34-38 Yuhtunga Jungle

From the outpost, while facing away from it, drop into the first hole to the left. Exit the small cave and you will be in your camp which covers the F-11 area noted above. At the level which you can learn the spell the Sahagin will present no challenge.


Sahagin Hunting Grounds Camp #2
Name Level Location
Lake/Pond/Spring Sahagin 36-39 Sea Serpent Grotto
Brook/Rivulet Sahagin 41-48 Sea Serpent Grotto
Riparian Sahagin 44-48 Sea Serpent Grotto
Bog/Marsh/Swamp Sahagin 52-59 Sea Serpent Grotto
Coastal/Delta/Lagoon/Shore Sahagin 62-72 Sea Serpent Grotto
Mamool Ja Frogman 76 Mamook
Mamool Ja Diver 76 Mamook

There are higher level Sahagins in the Sea Serpent Grotto and Mamook, but most will take more work then the Camp #1 Sahagin. So they are not recommended.


Special notes about the spell a Blue Mage may like to know
Can I solo it? Yes. You will have no trouble in camp #1
Do I need any special items? A low damage weapon to feed the Sahagin TP, and a warp item to save a long walk home are nice.
Do Sahagin like to use the move? It's popular and used often.
The spell deals Hand-to-Hand based blunt damage.
The spell reduces the Blue Mage's Enmity by a decent amount. It's very good to use after casting a high damage spell on the target to shed the hate.
Hydro Shot can be paired with either of the following spells to create the Rapid Shot Trait: Feather Storm or Jet Stream
