Special Notes on Monster and it's TP Moves

Corse are BLM type monsters. They will cast various Black magic spells including -ga spells and Ancient Magic. If boosted by Memento Mori the damage can impress.

Danse Macabre is quite dangerous if a strong helper gets charmed. It does not work on a Beastmaster's pet.

Silence Seal is a problem for casters and ninja.

Corse only spawn at night, between the hours of 20:00 and 4:00


Obtaining the Spell
Minimum Blue Mage Level Needed To Acquire Spell: Level 56
Memento Mori is best hunted in Attohwa Chasm.

This spell can be soloed by a 72+ Blue mage with great risk. Help is recommended. A high level Beastmaster is perfect for getting the spell. If you choose to try with a regular party, it should be balanced and weighted toward 70+ members.

There is aggro on the way to, and near, camp. Sneak and Invisibility should be at hand. Echo Drops to deal with silence, and Antidotes for the nasty poison from local plants will help. Setting Head Butt, Chaotic Eye, and several sleep spells is important.

Corse Hunting Grounds Camp #1
Name Level Location
Corse 66-67 Attohwa Chasm
Arch Corse 75-81 Attohwa Chasm

Proceed to Attohwa Chasm and move to camp in the F-8 area, the marked camp above is a safe spot, as is the SE corner of the F-8 square. Note that there are sound aggro Hecteyes in the tunnels, and sound aggro Scorpions and Antlions, and sight aggro Goblins on the way to camp. Take proper precautions.

Once you reach the left side of the chasm, getting to camp is annoying. There are walls of Black Mist that prevent your walking through many of the paths. Use the maze method to find your way, follow the wall on your left until you pop out into the open area near camp. It will take a bit of time to wind your way to it.

There are plants along the way to camp that produce a green gas that will poison you if you get near them. Use a spell or Antidote to cure it. Keep sneak up at all times, as Pit Antlions can aggro sound as you cross cracks in the ground. They can spring up from below and attack if you are not sneaked. Once in camp, there are several Scorpions in the area, they can aggro, so be aware of them.

Several Corse will spawn in the red circled area when night (20:00-04:00) falls. Other Undead pop near also. So be ready for them. They will aggro low HP, so they can complicate a fight.

If a Beastmaster is helping you, they can easily solo the Corse with no direct help, using the local Scorpions and Flys. Silencing the Corse will help the Beastmaster's pet last longer. Other then that, it's best to hang back, and let the pet do all the work. Since It cannot be charmed by Danse Macabre, there is little risk.

If you are with a party, then stunning ga spells is an important part of the Blue Mages job. Also, if the Corse charms one of the party, sleeping that person as soon as possible is important. Dance Macabre targets the person with the most hate, and does not last too long, so a sleep is enough to wait out it's duration. Monks are very useful for these fights as H2H does extra damage on bones.

Avoid the Arch Corse. They are very difficult to kill, and highly dangerous. More importantly, as you have a limited time each night when the Corse will pop, wasting time on any one kill might lead to a long wait for the next evening if you fail to learn the spell.


Corse Hunting Grounds Camp #2
Name Level Location
Grave Digger ??? SE Apollyon

Memento Mori can be learned on the proper Limbus run. You must be on or past CoP 8-2 to enter Limbus, and have gotten the proper Limbus key items for entry to this area. Your Limbus party should be more then able to deal with this Corse.


Corse Hunting Grounds Camp #3
Name Level Location
Gwyn Ap Knudd ??? Boneyard Gully ENM

Memento Mori can be learned in the uncapped Totentanz ENM in Boneyard Gully, located in the northern part of the chasm. Take care when getting to the gully for the fight, as there are many aggro mobs on the way.


Special notes about the spell a Blue Mage may like to know
Can I solo it? Yes. Once you move into your 70's. It will be risky. Getting help is a better path for this one.
Do I need any special items? Yes, a way to sneak and invisible yourself is needed to get to camp. Antidotes and Eye Drops for status effects. Set Stun, Silence, and Sleep spells as needed. Carry a warp item to save a long walk home.
Can I learn the spell from Keremet, a Corse NM boss on the CoP 4-3 Mission? No you cannot, the level 50 cap in the Sacrarium prevents learning this spell there.
Do Corse like to use the move? Yes. They seem to use it at least once per each fight.
The Spell adds +20 to Magic Attack for 30 seconds
Memento Mori can be paired with any of the following spells to create the Magic Attack Bonus Trait: Sound Blast, Cursed Sphere, Eyes On Me, Heat Breath, Reactor Cool, Dream Flower or Magic Hammer.
