Hello all you potential Blue Mages out there. As a Blue mage, I am sure that you want to have all your skills, as soon as you can get them.

Here for your help, is a list of the lowest mobs for each family of monster.

Note: Though you may learn the abilities from these monsters, not all skills may be able to be equiped once you learn them, due to high BP cost

This could come in pretty handy, especially since you've added the levels of the mobs involved. Just one little correction...
Metallic body = Stoneskin
Scissor guard = DEF up

Edit: I suppose one thing that could be useful is a chart of which mob type beats what, like PLantoid > Beast > Whatever, since the effectiveness of blue magic is supposed to depend on what you learned the move on and what it's used on.

{Good job!}

One suggestion though, for the future. SE has said that in updates following the release BLU will be able to learn more of these abilities. So once we find out whan we can learn to start, I don't think the other abilities should be actually taken off the list; they should just be listed differently, in a "not yet" way.

Excellent Job!

Allow me to suggest though that you add for each family of mobs against which mobs they are strong or weak. Acording to SE the relation between the mob from which you learn a move and the mob we are using it against will influence the strenght of the effect (or maybe even if the effect is resisted).

Given that BLUs will have only a limited amount of moves available at any time (even if they have learned all), I imagine one of the key aspects of the job will be to select the right abilities depending on the task to perform in a party (Magic Burst, enfeebling, backup healer, ¿maybe even tank?) and the enemy to face (crabs, crawlers, beastmen, etc.)

A guide like this with all the available abilities, their effects and the relationship between families of mobs will be more important for a BLU than a weaponskill chart for a melee ^^.

We will also need to learn what abilities we can SC with and what abilities we can MB with, so a skillchain chart will also be part of our ******** Blue Mage is shaping up to be one complex job by the looks -- at least, to play it at its top potential. I'm excited, I wish they'd ship the damn thing now.

I over looked some mobs, and some skills for some mobs. Mainly becuse I was rushing to get this up. I will update it this weekend with all the suggestions, and add in the skills that I thought were doubled up too much.

Did you know there are at least 12 versions of a single target knock back skill o_O

I did a little bit of research to find out what mob family beats what to add to this thred, and here it is...

Beasts > Lizards > Vermin > Plantoids > Beasts

Aquans > Amorphs > Birds > Aquans

Demons <=> Dragons

Undead <=> Arcana

Sheep have at least 2 more abilities that I know of:

Rage (?) - Berserk
Sheep Charge (?) - Single knock back attack

Tigers have also some stand up 2 fold attack...

Looking further there are a lot of missing abilities.

Yes, when I first made this; I did not put in many of the attacks that I thought were not going to be in there. For example, I did not want to put in any ability that was almost a carbon copy of a job ability.

I also, in the end, started to omit things that were far to common already. For example, Sheep Charge, the single target knock back. There are 17 versions of Knock-Back.

In the upcoming update of this thread, I will include ALL the mobs and ALL the abilities

As a RDM, this list will be handy for me as well. Now I have a better idea what needs to be dispeled, since we tend to stick with the familiar mobs in exp parties. I like challanges. :D

Thanks. I am still lacking some mob skills though, mainly the sea ones. Mystery tour lists them, but they are in Japanese, and since I cant read it, or go to sea yet. they are missing.

Missing abilities and other corrections:

* From Sabotenders: Needleshot. Single target, damage; either a critical (more likely) or two hits (less likely).

* From Dolls: All manner of elemental attacks which I can't remember names of. I believe there's one to each element, but I'm not sure. Also, the "Berserk" ability for Dolls is, in fact, Warcry.

* Lowest-level Doomed is Foul Meat in Gusgen Mines (43-45).

* Ice Roar, from Gigas, is only for Gigas in Xarcabard and Beaucedine.

* Heat Wave, from Bombs, does not appear outside of CoP areas, I believe. (I've never seen it from any bombs up to the low 50s in non-CoP areas.)

Hopefully these help a little.

Thornsong is Damage Spikes, not Blaze Spikes. The dragon family also gets Voidsong (dispels ALL positive effects including food).

I'm not sure if the Xarc dragons use Voidsong, but Sandy does. Bastok uses Thornsong also. I can't remember what Windy does, but I seem to remember it using something.

EDIT: I still can't remember the Windy dragon's song's name, but it's the one that adds the incremental curse that continues to lower your max HP/MP more and more as the fight goes on. [black]
