Special notes about the spell a Blue Mage may like to know
Can I solo it? Yes. A very easy spell to solo starting at level 1
Do I need any special items? No, but a low damage weapon to feed the Monster TP helps.
Do Bees like to use the move? Low level bees seem to show a preference for the other two TP moves. But have some patience, they will use it!
Many Blue Mages recommend getting Pollen as your first spell. This is for two reasons; One, once you obtain it, you can use the spell to keep your HP up as you hunt other spells. Second, you can spam the spell upon yourself to raise your Blue magic skill level, and reach the cap for your level. Capped Blue magic skill allows for better learning.
The Spell seems to cap at 35 HP healed. Even so, it's a spell that the early Blue Mage will use often, and it should be obtained as soon as possible.
Pollen can be paired with any one of the following spells to create the Resist Sleep Trait: Wild Carrot, Magic Fruit, Yawn, or Exuviation.
