How to Obtain[edit]

Acquired From[edit]

Mob Family: Uragnite
Minimum Blue Mage Level To Acquire: 33
Name Level Zone
Uragnite 30-37 Manaclipper
Coralline Uragnite 32-35 Bibiki Bay - Purgonorgo Isle

Note: Due to the monster's defense, it is suggested you have additional help in order to be able to defeat the monster. Also they use the poison abilities often, so either have a WHM with Poisona or bring along (quite a few) stacks of Antidote.

  • A very effective way to learn this spell, is to go blu/BST (bst must be 40+) charm an urganite, viscious clot, or kraken, attack the urganite with it, and stand back at a distance. have jet stream set as your primary DD spell, as urganites are fish, they take bonus damage from jetstream. whenever the urganite comes out of its shell, Chain affinity (if its up) and jet stream, each cast will deal 250-400 damage
