is best hunted in West Sarutabaruta [S].
This spell can be easily soloed at Camp #1 at the point you can learn it.
Nothing special is is needed for hunting the spell.
There are close to Three dozen Rafflesia spawns in West Sarutabaruta [S], split into three clumps, each forming it's own subcamp. The map above shows the general areas they can be found circled in red. There is aggro possible from the occasional Goblin and Yagudo, but it should not be a concern. Rafflesia will aggro by sound if you are of low enough level. They will link, so when pulling your target, take a moment to make sure your have a safe, link free place to fight. Pull a Rafflesia, feed it TP, see the spell, kill the Rafflesia, and hopefully learn your spell!
Rafflesia, and Jumbo Rafflesia, can both be found in Fort Karugo-Narugo [S] in huge numbers as marked on the map above. Each of the circled areas above can have one to ten spawns in it. The big concentrations are at I-9, K-9, G-7, and G-5 with five to ten in each. Note that the spawns located at G/H-4/5 are all Jumbo Rafflesia, and thus harder. As all the targets here are of higher level then the Rafflesia in West Sarutabaruta [S], they are not recommended for the easiest spell farming. But if you wish to learn from them here, you can.
Jumbo Rafflesia can be found in Meriphataud Mountains [S] in two camps as marked on the map above. There are eight in Camp a, and five in Camp b. Camp a is fairly free of aggro, and a good place to hunt. Camp b has Gnats, and Yagudo about, so it is not recommended. As the Jumbo Rafflesia here are of higher level then the Rafflesia in West Sarutabaruta [S], they are not the best choice for spell farming. But if you wish to learn from them you can. Beware of the high level aggro from other monsters in the area as you get to camp.
