None of the Worm moves are a problem at the level you will hunt the spell.

The Attack Down on Gastric Bomb is quite large.

 

Obtaining the Spell
Minimum Blue Mage Level Needed To Acquire Spell: Level 1.
Sandspin is best hunted in the starting areas out side of Bastok or San d'Oria.

This spell can be soloed starting at level 1. No party is needed for the best camp.

Bringing Echo Drops for silence can help.

Worm Hunting Grounds Camp #1
Name Level Location
Tunnel Worm 1 East/West Ronfaure
Tunnel Worm 1 North/South Gustaberg
Tunnel Worm 1-3 Zeruhn Mines
Carrion Worm 1-5 East/West Ronfaure
Carrion Worm 2-5 King Ranperre's Tomb
Stone Eater 2-5 North/South Gustaberg
Stone Eater 3-5 Dangruf Wadi
Dirt Eater 3-5 Giddeus
Stone Eater 5-7 King Ranperre's Tomb
Rock Eater 7-11 La Theine Plateau
Rock Eater 7-11 Konschtat Highlands
Giant Grub 9-12 Dangruf Wadi
Earth Eater 10-12 Giddeus

Just head out from a starter city and kill Worms. Nothing special.

If you choose to get the spell in the Dangruf Wadi, La Theine Plateau, or the Konschtat Highlands, you should be at least level 7 or higher. There can be other aggro on the way to, and in the zones.

There are many other Worm class monsters all over the world. They are all higher in level, and many will require a party, or skilled help to kill. With so many easy low level options, they are not recommended.

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 Worms like to use the move? This in not one that they seem to pick often. It can take some time to see it in the low areas.
The Spell cannot be resisted.
