Special Notes on Monster and it's TP Moves

Hpemdes will aggro but not attack. As long as you do not damage the monsters HP in any way it will simply follow you about for a bit. You can cast slow, paralyze, sleep, etc on them with no worries. None of the TP moves pose much of a problem in fights.

Enfeebling Hpemdes seems to cause them to use Rapid Molt a lot instead of other TP moves.


Obtaining the Spell
Minimum Blue Mage Level Needed To Acquire Spell: Level 64 with Magus Jubbah equipped, 67 without.
Temporal Shift is best hunted in Al'Taieu.

This spell can be soloed around level 74 with any subjob, and with /NIN it can be done at 71 with care. 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 Antidotes for Ichor Stream, and Remedies for the paralysis from Tail Thrust.


Hpemde Hunting Grounds Camp #1
Name Level Location
Ul'hpemde 68-72 Al'Taieu
Om'hpemde 73-77 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'hpemde. Note that there are Phuabo's near the ramps base, as they can aggro, take care.

Om'hpemde 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.
