Special Notes on Monster and it's TP Moves

Xzomits travel in schools of three. A large one followed by two small ones. When pulling, be sure to target the last fish in the school or the others will link. None of the TP moves are overly dangerous.

 

Obtaining the Spell
Minimum Blue Mage Level Needed To Acquire Spell: Level 63 with Magus Jubbah equipped, 66 without.
Saline Coat is best hunted in Al'Taieu.

This spell can be soloed starting around level 72. It's safer and easier to duo it with a Tank.

You must be on or past CoP mission 8-1 to enter Al'Taieu. Party members should have Eye Drops to deal with Ink Cloud. Equipping Blank Gaze or Geist Wall, is useful for dealing with Molluscous Mutation.

Xzomit Hunting Grounds Camp #1
Name Level Location
Ul'xzomit 68-71 Al'Taieu
Om'xzomit 73-76 Al'Taieu
Aern's Xzomit ??? Al'Taieu

Once you zone into Al'Taieu, head to the ramp at H-11 that leads up to the Grand Palace of Hu'Xzoi. This ramp makes for a very safe camp. From here you can pull passing Ul'xzomit. Note that there are Phuabo's near the ramps base, as they can aggro, take care.

Om'xzomit are found roughly from 7 O'clock clockwise around to 5 O'clock on the map of Al'Taieu. As they are higher levels, they are not the best targets with the low ones so easily reached. The Aern pet Xzomit's add the trouble of dealing with an angry Aern at the same time. Not recommended.
