Special Notes on Monster and it's TP Moves

The Paralysis that comes with Rampant Gnaw procs often.

The slow MP drain from Lowing can cause trouble if you are tight for MP. It does wear fairly quickly.


Obtaining the Spell
Minimum Blue Mage Level Needed To Acquire Spell: Level 62 with Magus Jubbah equipped, 65 without.
Lowing is best hunted in Uleguerand Range.

This spell can be safely soloed when you can use it at 71. It's much safer and easier to duo it with a Tank.

Party members should have Remedies for Rampant Gnaw's Paralysis, or the ability to cast Paralyna. Having a White Mage to remove Disease is a bonus. Having Sneak and Invisibility spells or potions is a must to reach camp.

Buffalo Hunting Grounds Camp #1
Name Level Location
Buffalo 62-65 Uleguerand Range

Once you zone into Uleguerand Range, head to the camp A at G-11, or Camp B at E-9, if you need more targets. Both camps are safe areas on the ramps, just before you enter the open areas where the Buffalo roam, which are noted by the red circles above. You will pass sight aggro Snoll and tigers, and sound aggro Bats on the way to camp. Snoll also aggro magic. Take care.

There are a few Buffalo near camp A, and many more at B. They aggro sight, but have a very small vision range. Pull them to your camp, and obtain your spell. The Paralysis from Rampant Gnaw should be removed as soon as possible, as it can often prevent casting.

You should have no problems soloing the low level Buffalo at Blue Mage 70+

A Blue Mage with a Tank operating as a Duo will have no problems with this spell. Simply keep your tank healed and status free, and things will go easily. A Beastmaster can easily solo the spell with local pets.


Buffalo Hunting Grounds Camp #2
Name Level Location
Giant Buffalo 68-71 Uleguerand Range
King Buffalo 79-82 Uleguerand Range

There are higher level Buffalo to be found as you move around the Range in a counter-clockwise direction toward it's top. As they are higher level, they will be more difficult to kill, and require help or a party. There are also dangerous aggro mobs on the way to, and near these Buffalo. Because there are the excellent lower level camps, these are not recommended.
