Are you trying to unlock all of the Blue Mage spells quickly in Final Fantasy XIV?

Final Fantasy XIV has plenty of jobs to level up and Blue Mages are without a doubt one of the most efficient classes in terms of versatility, especially if you learn all of their spells. There is plenty of reason to go on the hunt for each spell but I know that it will take a very long time. Thankfully, this article will take you through how to unlock every single Blue Mage spell in Final Fantasy XIV.

How to Unlock Blue Mage Spells in Final Fantasy XIV

In order to start unlocking Blue Mage spells you will have to of course first unlock Blue Mage as a job. You will be able to start the unlock quest when you are at least level 50 on one main job class. The starting location of the Unlock Quest is found at (X:10, Y:11) and given by the Yellowjacket in the plaza of Limsa Lominsa.

When you have obtained the Blue Mage job after the quest, you will be able to learn spells by watching enemies cast particular spells/being in their area. You will also have to defeat the enemy after they cast the spell fully in order to get the chance of learning the spell.

Unlock Requirement for Every Blue Mage Spell in Final Fantasy XIV

I would recommend keeping this page up while you are looking for each of the spells so you have an easy reference of each location for the spells. I have split the spells into their respective star ranks so it’s much easier for you to find those you are looking for the most. This is instead of having to trawl through an entire page of spells in one table — pick and search for them as you like!

In order to keep spells even easier for you to find, I have also listed the quickest ways to find each spell in terms of enemies. There are sometimes a few extra enemies where you can get the spell but the enemies listed are the quickest to reach. However, if you run into the spell you are looking for through another enemy you can unlock it from them too.

These lists have been written by way of my own in-game experience along with research from the Final Fantasy XIV Wiki and FFXIV Collect due to the sheer number of spells.

One Star Blue Mage Spells

There are plenty of excellent rank one Blue Mage spells to collect such as Ice Spikes, Loom, and Choco Meteor. Most of your time looking for the rank one spells will be spent in various open-world regions, and I know you will find plenty of gorgeous views along the way.

Within the table, there is a column labeled “Minimum Level Required to Learn” and this just means what level you need to be to acquire the spell. However, for those spells which mention “Level one”, sometimes you could tag along with friends to see an enemy use a spell in a high-level area when you are still of a lower level, and still learn the spell. I wouldn’t recommend that but it is an option for you.

Two Star Blue Mage Spells

Final Sting is a two-star rank Blue Mage spell, and it is one of the most powerful Blue Mage spells you can unlock. Many will be on the lookout for this spell so it is listed first and foremost in the table. Other spells in the list shouldn’t be neglected though as there are still plenty of other two-rank spells worth the effort required to gain them.

Three Star Blue Mage Spells

The three star Blue Mage spells have plenty of versatility and it is worthwhile going on the journey for all of these. A few more of the spells in this category just require you to learn a lot of spells so if you have already been working through obtaining the spells above then this will take less time for you. Otherwise, I recommend just moving on to other lists if you have not met the requirement for some of the learned spell amounts.

Four Star Blue Mage Spells

After you have concluded your search for the majority of three star spells, you may want to aim for acquiring some of the four star spells before any of the five star ones. However, no matter what you decide to go for first, you won’t need to feel limited thanks to how diverse the spells all are. Keep pushing onwards with the spell search and you will be one of the best Blue Mages in Eorzea!

Five Star Blue Mage Spells

Finally, there are the five-star Blue Mage spells to find which are of course tied to some of the more difficult trials, dungeons, and so forth. However, having five-star spells is going to be a necessity for any player who mains a Blue Mage. They can add that extra bit of spice to your gameplay style and will add some fresh elements to your spell-casting.

All Patch 6.45 Final Fantasy XIV Blue Mage Spells

The first quest “And the Crowd Goes Mild” can be started in Ul’dah at the Steps of Thal (X:12.5 Y:13.0) given by Martyn. You will need to be at least level 70 as a Blue Mage to start the quest. Along with that, you need to have finished the “Reflections in Crystal” quest and “A Future in Blue”.
