Obtaining the Spell
Minimum Blue Mage Level Needed To Acquire Spell: Level 1
Sprout Smack is best hunted in North or South Gustaberg.

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

No special items needed.

Sapling Hunting Grounds Camp #1
Name Level Location
Walking Sapling 2-6 North Gustaberg
Walking Sapling 2-6 South Gustaberg
Strolling Sapling 7-10 Konschtat Highlands
Strolling Sapling 7-10 La Theine Plateau
Strolling Sapling 7-10 Tahrongi Canyon

Just head out from Bastok and kill Saplings. Nothing special.

If you choose to get the spell in La Theine, the Highlands, or Tahrongi, you should be at least level 5 or higher. In the early areas of the zones where saplings are found, no other mobs will aggro. But if you are very low level, there can be other aggro on the way to the zones.

There are many other Sapling 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.
