The Blue Mage is a combination of the Tank, Healer, and DPS classes in Final Fantasy XIV. It is completely different from the other classes in the game. It is the only Limited Job in FFXIV. In this article, we will show you how you can get it.
How to Get Blue Mage in Final Fantasy XIV
In order to be a Blue Mage in Final Fantasy XIV, you will first have to be on level 50 or higher. Additionally, you will also have to complete The Ultimate Weapon, which is the game’s main scenario quest. It is also the last main story quest in the entire game. Once you complete this quest, you should head to the Zealous Yellowjacket in the Limsa Lominsa Lower Decks. Here, you will be able to pick up the Out of the Blue quest.
Once you become a Blue Mage, you should aim to hit the level cap. This should not be too difficult, as Blue Mages tend to level up much more quickly when compared to the other classes. You can easily achieve level 70 in a few hours. You will also need to have a friend with a level 80 character.
To get your level up, you can hit an enemy as the Blue Mage. After this, your friend (who is not in a party with you) will kill the said enemy. By doing so, you will get 100% of the XP. Additionally, if you follow these steps in an area that has level 69 monsters, you will reach level 70. Just remember that a level 69 monster will be able to kill you with a single swipe.
In order to counter this, you will need to use a spell that has a very long range. In doing so, you will give your friend the opportunity to attack the enemy. You will need Blue Magic Spell number 24, called the Flying Sardine. You can get it by killing the Apkallu in Eastern La Noscea.
Once you get the Flying Sardine, you can head to the caves in The Loch. Here, use the spell on an enemy so that your friend can kill it. You should reach level 70 in a few hours.
Gathering Blue Mage Spells in Final Fantasy XIV
Now, you can get to the fun part of being a Blue Mage, and that is gathering spells. There are 104 of these spells to be collected in Final Fantasy XIV. To get these spells, you will need to kill monsters that use those specific spells. While most of these monsters are easy to find, there will be a few rare ones that you can find in dungeons, raids, and trials.
We recommend that you first collect spells from monsters that are easily available in and around the game’s map. After you get 10 spells, you will be able to get the White Wind. This is the most powerful spell in the entire game, and you will get it from the Whalaquee White Wind Totem that is sold by Wayward Gaheel Ja in Ul’dah.
Another great spell you should get is The Ram’s Voice. You can usually get it from A Relic Reborn: The Chimera. With this spell, you will be able to freeze the enemies that surround you for several seconds. In doing so, you will prevent them from attacking you. The best part of this spell is the fact that you can use them repeatedly. The only downside is that each time you use The Ram’s Voice, the freeze time will reduce.
If you wish to collect several spells at a time, you can join a party. You can have anywhere between 3 – 7 Blue Mages in a party. Additionally, you can try to use the Party Finder to get people to help you out.
You will also get spells by completing the Blue Mage storyline. Along with this, you can also play the Masked Carnival, which is the coliseum in the game.
Uses of the Blue Mage Spells
You can use the Blue Mage during the Moogle Tomestone events that keep occurring in Final Fantasy XIV. In these events, you will need to take part in PvP or dungeons in order to acquire music, mounts, and glamour items. If you go with a group of Blue Mages, you will be able to run a 20-minute dungeon in less than 5 minutes.
Another place you can use the spells is during Fates. With the Blue Mage, you will easily be able to crush a Fate that is below level 70.
Let’s now check out the true end game for every Blue Mage, and that is the Morbol mount.
The Blue Mage Endgame: The Morbol Mount
The Morbol Mount is the biggest proof you will get that you are the best of all the Blue Mages. You will need to complete the Bahamut raids on Turn 5, 9, and 13. You will have to do so on the savage difficulty level. After this, you will have to complete the 4, 8, and 12 Alexander raids on the same difficulty level.
Now, you need to know that these fights are going to be much harder than ones with a normal party. While this may sound intimidating initially, it is relieving to know that the damage caused by Blue Mage is so great, that you can easily defeat the bosses here.
The only disadvantage could be that Blue Mages can be pretty weak Tanks and Healers. This might make it a little difficult to keep everyone alive.
