Job Description

As the only Job to combine both Learning and the ability to cast Blue magic, you'll find yourself switching to this class on occasion. However, the Blue Mage's Magic Power isn't very impressive for a Mage. Furthermore, OGoblin Punch works better on characters with higher Strength and OWhite Wind, and O???? and OSelf-Destruct work better on those with much Vitality. Since Blue Mages can equip Rods, setting a high !Summon or !Black spell list is a great way to give even more offense to the Blue Mage; with healing, buffs and debuffs, the Blue Mage already has all the utility it'll ever need.

Job Ability Summary

!Blue is a great ability that can deal magical damage, HP-based damage, Strength-based damage and various buffs and debuffs, so there really isn't any Job that uses it much better than the others. An interesting and important note is, though, that the KnifeAir Knife boosts the Wind-elemental attacks; everybody can equip the KnifeAir Knife except for the Monkand the White Mage, so it's easy to boost the element. A downside could be that learning Blue spells when they become available can be a true hassle sometimes. For more, see check out the section on Blue magic.

Transfer to Freelancer

Learning is good, but by the time you switch to Freelancers you probably no longer need to learn anything. Stat boosts aren't impressive either.
