FFXIV Blue Mage Blue Magic Guide By: Ruan1387

Obvious spoilers regarding Blue Magic aside, BLU’s initial spells have been datamined and doing some research on my own, as well as using research contributions from the community, on the mobs/dungeons levels, I’ve put together a small guide on when you can learn spells, not just from where and from what. I’ve also included basic information on BLU-specific macros and quests, to help save your browsers from having a dozen tabs open at once 😉

Blue Mage Quests:

Blue Mage is first unlocked at Limsa Lominsa Lower Decks (X:10.0 Y:11.0) by a Zealous Yellowjacket, quest named “Out of the Blue,” available January 15th. Players must first complete the main scenario quest “The Ultimate Weapon.”

After unlocking Blue Mage, Job Quests for BLU are at levels 1, 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 & 50.

  • The level 10 quest requires that you learn Blood Drain,
  • The level 20 quest requires that you learn Mind Blast,
  • The level 30 quest requires that you learn Faze,
  • The level 40 quest requires that you learn 1000 Needles,
  • The level 50 quest requires that you learn Glower

*Note that these Job Quests are separate from gaining spell totems, which unlock a few new spells. These spell totems are gained after learning 5, 10, 10, & 20 other spells.


Blue Mage Specific Macros:

Base Macro Subcommands Example
/blueaction “spell name” , , , -, etc. /blueaction “Acorn Bomb”
/bluespellbook [subcommand] set “blue mage action” on, set “blue mage action” off, preset [active set 1-5], clear /bluespellbook set “Water Cannon”, /bluespellbook preset 2, /bluespellbook clear
/micon “” blueaction N/A /micon “Acorn Bomb” blueaction
  • /blueaction is used for casting spells, much like /action & /petaction (/ac & /pac, perhaps /bac will work for shorthand /blueaction)
  • /bluespellbook is used to set (“equip”) Blue Magic spells or to unset them. You can do single specific spells as well as entire presaved spell sets (set up spell sets by using the new BLU Spellbook UI. For launch at least; up to 24 spells can be set at a single time, you can save up to 5 presets)

Blue Mage Specific Gear:

  • Weapons
  • Starting Gear & AF Armor

*Note that weapons are purely cosmetic for BLUs, the stats from the rest of their gear is weighted more heavily to compensate.


Blue Mage Specific Achievements:

Achievement How to Obtain Title
The More You Know I-V Learn 5/10/20/30/40 Blue Mage spells Blue Blood (IV)
Smokin’ I-VI Complete 1/5/10/15/20/25 stages at the Masked Carnivale Mask of the Blue (VI)
The Harder They Fall Achieve the “Giant Slayer” feat at the Masked Carnivale (#10 – A Little Knight Music)
Octopath Traveler Achieve the “Trouble with Tentacles” feat at the Masked Carnivale (#20 – Miss Typhon) Vezko’s & Talehon’s Guides
Something Borrowed Achieve the “Perfect Blue” feat at the Masked Carnivale (#25 – Dirty Rotten Azulmagia) Perfect Blue
  • Giant Slayer is obtained by not interrupting “King’s Will” throughout the fight
  • Trouble with Tentacles is obtained by not killing any of the tentacles that spawn in the 3rd Act
  • Perfect Blue is obtained by getting a score of 300,000 or higher. You have to get at least both “Total Mastery” & “Can’t Touch This” (Use all 6 elements + all 3 physical types & Take 0 Damage)

Learning Spells:

Important! You cannot learn spells while dead! So if you have friends helping you with harder spells, make sure they raise you before killing the monster!

  • If a monster uses the spell, then all the BLUs die, get rezzed, and it wasn’t a full wipe (lv70s helping during Primals for example), the BLUs can still learn the spell without having to see the spell used after they were rezzed. Just make sure everyone is alive!
  • To learn Blue Magic, all spells (with the exceptions of those listed under “Special Means”) are learned by defeating a mob after it has used the spell you’re looking for.
  • You do NOT have to be hit by the spell to learn it.
  • You may also learn the spell while in a party. If with other BLUs, every BLU will learn the spell at the same time if the party succeeds as a whole in their chance to learn.
  • The number of BLUs in your party does NOT increase your chance to learn a spell. It is not 1 roll per BLU per kill to learn, but a flat 1 roll per kill.
  • When defeating the monster who’s used the appropriate move, there is a % chance to learn the spell and that seems to be determined by the spell’s rank (exceptions being “Special Means” spells). ★☆☆☆☆ represents the easiest, highest % chance to learn and ★★★★★ being the hardest, lowest % chance to learn.
  • Note that all of the dungeon/raid/trial/Masked Carnivale spells have level requirements. All of the open world & totem spells are available at level 1. You must be able to enter the dungeon/trial, so you must be the minimum level for that dungeon/trial.
  • For many cases, spells must be learned from the mobs in the locations in this list, despite others appearing in the same family in other locations. Not every mob in a monster family uses the spell you’re hunting. Certain monster families use BLU magic regardless of the clue location, so simply seek out the lowest level/easiest one to farm. For example; it seems all Qiqirn can teach Faze.
  • An exception has been found with Chiggoes teaching Blood Drain instead of Bats. This is also true for Leviathan teaching Aqua Breath instead of Ultros. There may be other instances where, if a move of the same name is used, may be learned from monsters outside of their normal family.
  • Garuda’s & Shiva’s Primal spells can only be obtained from Extreme Mode difficulty, while Ramuh’s, Titan’s, Leviathan’s, & Ifrit’s can also be obtained from Hard Mode difficulty. There is currently a bug preventing Ifrit from also teaching Eruption in Normal Mode, that will be corrected in the next hotfix.
  • The difficulty of the Primal (HM vs EX) does not change the learn rate. The learn rate is just incredibly low for 5 star spells. Do whichever version of the Primal you can kill the fastest (except for Garuda and Shiva, where you have to do EX).
  • Also, it is important to note that you can learn spells from monsters higher than you, but you must be able to get to them (dungeons & trials must be unlocked, but you can be carried).
