Blue Mage (FF14)


Unlocking Blue Mage requires having a level 50 job and completing the quest The Ultimate Weapon. It is an advanced limited job, and as such cannot join Duty Roulette, PVP, or play through the main scenario quests.

Unlike other jobs, Blue Mage does not learn abilities via leveling up or through quests. Instead, you or your party must defeat enemies after they have used certain abilities. If you are alive at the death of the mob, you have a chance of learning these abilities. The chance of learning the ability depends on the difficulty rank of the ability itself.

To choose which abilities to use in battle, you must open the Blue Magic Spellbook, and choose from those you have learnt, much like setting role actions. You can have a maximum of 24 abilities chosen, and can save up to five different skillsets. Note that switching between skillsets will not change your hotbars.

Upon completion of the first quest you will be rewarded with a True Blue (lv1) equipment set (see below in Armor).


These are Blue Mage's job quests. They can be undertaken after you reach certain levels on your Blue Mage and learning certain abilities. The first listed quest unlocks the job itself.

Level Ability Requirement Quest
- Out of the Blue
1 - Blue Leading the Blue
10 Blood Drain Blue Collar Work
20 Mind Blast Why They Call It the Blues
30 Faze Scream Blue Murder
40 1,000 Needles Blue Gold
50 Glower The Real Folk Blues
50 * Turning Over a Blue Leaf

*The second lv50 quest does not require an ability, but does require the completion of Masked Carnivale level 25. The Carnivale is unlocked at the completion of the first lv50 quest.


Note that as a limited job, Blue Mage cannot use PVP abilities or limit breaks.
