Leveling a Final Fantasy XIV blue mage can seem daunting. However, many players achieve maximum level within a matter of hours.
Final Fantasy XIV, a massively multiplayer online game (MMORPG), is set in the fantasy world of Eorzea. As the player guides an avatar of an adventurer, they encounter the hostile Garlean Empire as well as the threat from the Primals (the deities of the land’s Beastmen tribes). They are eventually involved in a Garlean Legatus plot to destroy the Primals, bringing one moon from the planet down on Eorzea.
You can choose from any of the five available races to be your avatar. You can customize the avatar’s hair, eye colour, skin tone and scars. Facial features can also be changed. The player can choose from 18 classes.
What’s the Blue Mage?
The Blue Mage can be played solo and has a maximum level 70. This class is somewhat isolated from the rest and can be difficult to level up using standard routes. It can be hard to do a normal dungeon without the help of a blue mage. The mages must fight the basic enemies. Blue Mages learn spells by watching their opponents attack and then copying them.
Steps to level a Blue Mage
The steps to level a Blue Mage character remain the same through the entire journey to level 70. Players should use a standard experience (XP) to increase items they may already have such as the Brand-New Ring and Friendship Circlet. These items should be used for as long as they give the XP buff.
The leveling up process can be accelerated by killing mobs of a higher level than your character. Players will receive a Chain Bonus, which gives you more XP per kill. This is an optional step as players may be more comfortable with enemies of different levels.
Players should always keep their Chocobo with them. It can be set up in a healer or tank position. Once they feel confident enough, the player can alter their stance to attack. The Blue Mage quests should be completed until the player is required to learn a particular spell or advance in Carnivale.
Players can forego the Carnivale and instead go through the open-world spells in an increasing order of level. The player can continue working on the Blue Mage quests if they meet the requirements.
To increase their level, the player should kill any mobs within their level while they are working to get spells. If they feel their gear is not doing enough damage or they are dying too quickly, they can upgrade it. You can either buy new gear from a vendor, or you can make it yourself.
The path to Level 50
The character should learn 10 spells quickly. This will enable the player to learn White Wind (NPC) from the Blue Mage non-player characters. This skill is the only one that players have long-term access to.
While they wait for Fate spawn, players can begin in Lower La Noscea. This is where a player can get the Sticky Tongue skill the earliest. However, players can continue to the next objective if the wait takes too long.
Cave Bats are also a good choice to fight in order for players to earn the Blood Drain skill. It is an important skill that isn’t required, but it should be available and the character should have the appropriate level. The spell list can be worked through by players until they reach level seven- or eight. Once the spell list is complete, players can move to Central Shroud and learn the Ice Spikes skill. This will speed up fights.
The character can learn the Acorn Bomb skill in North Shourd once they have reached level 9 or 10. Bristle is the next spell, and can be learned by an East Shroud level 20 boar. To learn the Toad Oil, the player can move to Western Thanalan. This skill is vital to increase the character’s survival.
1 000 Needles is the most important solo leveling spell. This skill is usually acquired at level 20, but some players may be able to acquire it earlier. This skill can be obtained from Little Ala Mhigo, Southern Thanalan. It is also a great time to learn the Basic Instinct skill of Master Couerl in Upper La Noscea. It is useful for farming in dungeons, even though it does not help you level up in open world.
Once the player reaches level 30, they can go on to Mor Dhona, where the character will reach level 45. Then the character must kill more powerful enemies. Once they have reached level 30, the player can move on to Sapsa Spawning Grounds, where they will reach level 50.
1 000 Needles will no longer be of any use once the character has reached level 50. If the player is still lacking lower-level skills, they should acquire them earlier. The Flying Sardine is a useful tool for obtaining spells from lower-level opponents if the player wishes to keep leveling up their character. Basic Instinct is another useful spell that you should have.
The path to level 60
At level 50, the first thing a player should do is to acquire Augmented Ironworks gear. It would also make a great point to obtain Eruption From Ifrit Normal. The next step is to obtain the most important spells for power-leveling: Choco Meteor and Ram’s Voice. Missile is another optional spell.
Now players have the option to power level up or farm relic weapon material, like Anima or Crystals. It is highly recommended that players do FATEs until they reach level 60 or 70 if they want to farm relic material.
The player must work their way through each zone, killing enemies, and performing FATEs. You can also try to obtain essential spells such as Whistle Sonic Boom, ElectroGeneis and Whistle for later. The player can farm level 60 enemies once they reach level 59 when they have reached level 59. The character might have difficulty with level 50 gear.
The road towards level 70
This is basically the same as the level 50-60 step but with an additional red flag. Augmented Shire gear is recommended by poetics. You have the ability to learn spells, get Primal spells and do FATEs. In the openworld, players can learn new spells like Tringle and Triple Trident as well as Ultravibration.
Peaks, Yanxia, and then Lochs are the recommended zones at this point. After a character has reached level 68 or69, they can go to Stilltide in Kholusia to fight level 70 mobs. After that, players can learn spells they don’t know and complete the Blue Mage quests or Carnivale.
Although it may seem like a long way to get to the highest level, some players can reach level 70 within a matter of hours. You can also join higher-level characters to farm raids, FATEs, and dungeons quickly in order to level up the Blue Mage.
