    Blue magic resources?

    Is there any good resources for tracking down where and what to learn blue magic from?

    With google I was able to find a number with the spell lists, but often end up needing 3-4 windows open to track down the spell. One for the spell, one for mob family, one for the zone of mob targeting, and sometimes one for how to access said zone (thanks to it being something like meeble related)

    Ideally, would like something with spell and mob family learned from on same page as that would cut down majority of the windows needed as outside of a few odd mobs, I do have a good idea of where to look for most mobs.

    Would be useful to know what gives what at a glance while trying to get last of the old spells was missing (mostly unbridled learning) and all the new ones added since adoulin as took a prolonged break around then. Mainly to better plan where to go to try and get multiple spells in one trip instead of having to backtrsck multiple times.

    Try http://184.154.208.218/~tforum/blu/BLUMain.html. It might be a tiny bit out of date (not 100% sure it has all Unbridled spells and advice is not intended for ilvl world,) but it covers most everything you might need.

    Not quite what was looking for, but likely the closest. Still will end up going 1 spell at a time, as can't see the family tied into the whole list, just individual spells.

    Yup, best option that I've ever found. Most spells are pretty straightforward/obvious which mobs they come from though if you've been playing for a while.

    Went through and made a list of spells was missing(~45), and vast majority are tied to adoulin or later mobs which are ones least familiar with so don't know which is from what. And the non adoulin ones, are either unbridled from mobs I didn't have reliable access to learn from such as cerberus, or are new ones they added, like to the archaic family of mobs(ie chariots) which never fought often enough to learn their moves.

    Next will be to flag the list made with Mob type so can plan out where/what to kill in groups. As running from zone to zone for 1 mob at a time really sucks, even when its a very useful spell. Like probably gonna try and do the archaics and the 3 aht urghan HNM unbridleds together running 96-100 of nyzul, unless see a better spot to go after them.

    Abyssea is your friend for learning blue magic. 15min or forced repops aren't bad for the NM-only spells, and the bestiary covers quite a large chunk of learnable families. If you are not done w/ Abyssea, now's a good time to go (since boosted lights and easier to get KIs along the way,) and you will need to finish it to have access to Mighty Guard.

    Assuming you have a solid 119 job of some sort, quite a few spells are available from Geas Fete NMs, many of which are solo/lowman-able. Legion also works for a number of 'em (though the hydras don't use Pyrhic Bulwark) and is dirt cheap to enter nowadays.

    Suggest you track down all the dual-elementals and learn all 8 of their spells as they are very strong and have good traits attached. Alluvion Skirmish Yorcia Weald w/ a 1/1/1/cape entry KI will give you a level where all the mobs are elementals, including some of the duals. This is the most reliable way of learning their spells since weather is never actually predictable in-game.

    https://www.bg-wiki.com/bg/Blue_Mage#Magic This lists all the blue magic. However, you have to search where to find the monsters. For monster locations ffxidb is a good site.

    Abysea would be a good spot for some of the stubborn ones if the pop isn't too crazy (like chloris for example) Though vast majority of the ones I am missing, am pretty sure they are adoulin specific.

    As to gear, have a mix of 119 xitah geas fete(despair hands feet), unity(pants from artho I think), and ambuscade (body, +1head ayamo I think is set)for blu armor and 119 sword from arke and sparks sword so should be fine to go to most spots to get the spells, would need some work to do geas fete mobs on blue as don't quite have the acc yet, or good casting gear for blue.

    While mucking about in adoulin zones been keeping an eye out for the elementals as hear they are good along with subduction and mighty gaurd. Any other really good ones to prioritize once get done mucking about unlocking travel options in adoulin? As besides the adoulin ones, will likely be one at a time and would like to group them up with doing something else if possible. Like nyzul token farming or abysea gear upgrade items/story.
