Special Notes on Monster and it's TP Moves

None of the Treant TP moves are overly horrid if you are near the monsters level.

Sapling type monsters that are near a Treant will link with it.


Obtaining the Spell
Minimum Blue Mage Level Needed To Acquire Spell: Level 26
Pinecone Bomb is best hunted in Jugner Forest.

This spell can be soloed starting in the upper 20's range. No party is needed for the Jugner Forest camp.

Bring Eye Drops to deal with Drill Branch, and a low level weapon to feed TP to the Treant.


Treant Hunting Grounds Camp #1
Name Level Location
Walking Tree 25-28 Jugner Forest

There are four Walking Tree spawn points in Jugner Forest. The Trees will spawn in the general areas indicated with red circles on the map above. At level 30 you should have no problems soloing the trees. Be aware there are Tigers, Orcs, and Goblins that can aggro in the area. Take precautions. Also, Sapling type monsters will link with a Treant if you are fighting one. If you are lower level, picking up a few adds can be a problem, so take care!


Treant Hunting Grounds Camp #2
Name Level Location
Treant 35-37 Batallia Downs
Leshy 52-54 Lufaise Meadows

Higher level Treants are also options. The Lufase Meadows Camp at G-6 is nice because there are eight spawn points, with a five minute respawn time. This allows for non stop killing if needed. As they are higher, if you plan to solo the spell you will need to be at least in your mid 50's if not higher. The Leshy aggro, and can link with saplings in the area. A High end 70's helper can handle the Leshy here easily. You'll need to be on or past CoP mission 2-1 for access to these mobs.

There are many very high level Treants in the Bhaflau Thickets, Wajaom Woodlands, and Caedarva Mire. They are all 70 to Low 80's in level, and will require a party or skilled help to kill. With so many easier options, they are not recommended.


Special notes about the spell a Blue Mage may like to know
Can I solo it? Yes. With proper care you should have no problems by level 30 in camp #1
Do I need any special items? Eye Drops for Drill Branch, and a low damage weapon to feed TP.
Do Treants like to use the move? Yes. They seem to use it as often then the others.
The Spell has a very nice range. The Sleep works nicely on the undead, and seems to last in most cases for a good bit. When used on too weak mobs the damage can amaze.
