Special Notes on Monster and it's TP Moves

Amoeban Seem to be BLM and DRK. They favor Stone based spells when BLM, and use the full ABS line when DRK. They may have fast cast. 

Amoeban seem to agro Magic and Job ablities. 

Osmosis can steal almost any buff when used by mobs including 2-hours!

The Paralyse from Vacuole Discharge is very strong.


Obtaining the Spell
Minimum Blue Mage Level Needed To Acquire Spell: Level 75 with Magus Jubbah equipped, 78 without.
Osmosis is best hunted in Abyssea - Vunkerl, Abyssea - Attohwa, or Abyssea - Misareaux

This spell can be soloed at 80 with some risk. A party makes things much safer. 

Are special items are needed? A way to silence the Amoeban makes a big difference. Being able to remove Paralisis is a must. 


Amoeban Hunting Grounds Camp #1
Name Level Location
Stream Amoeban 79-88? Abyssea - Vunkerl


Right after you enter the zone there are a large number of Stream Amoeban floating about. Like any monster in an Abyssea zone, the more they are killed the higher level they respawn at, so for a level 80 you may see DC to IT mobs.

DC's can be soloed with some risk. The TP moves are very damaging, and Discharge ignores shadows. It is very easy to get unlucky and die. A small party of 80+ can handle them. A trio of BLU's ranging from 80-85 had no issues. 

Pull with a ranged weapon so you will not aggro other Amoeban with your casting. The mob will open with a spell so having shadows up to absorb it helps. You can outrun any aga. 

The paralyze is very strong, and having someone tasked for getting it off is helpful. 

Being able to dispel any stolen buffs can help.

Unlike the Murex, these stun easily. It is not hard to stop most casting.

Handle things Just as described in camp #1

Special notes about the spell a Blue Mage may like to know
Can I solo it? Yes but it is risky. A small party would help.
Do I need any special items? A way to silence and remove paralysis is needful.
Do Amoeban like to use the move? Yes, they use it often. 
The Spell is a Dark type, and the Drain is potent. The steal effect can take almost every buff also.
Osmosis can be paired with Ice Break or Magnetite Cloud to create the Magic Defense Bonus Trait.
