I've been spending so much time reading the forums and trying to unlock blue mage for days. The problem is I'm kind of new and I can't figure out how to get to the white gates. I've done the Wildcat quest and it won't let me finish because I haven't been to the white gates in Art Urhgan yet.
The latest thing I've tried is http://wiki.ffxiclopedia.org/wiki/The_Road_to_Aht_Urhgan . Apparently I'm supposed to talk to Faursel, however when I go to Neptune's Spire I don't see him there and I try to get in every room but they're locked and there is one guy standing in the hallway who just tells me to go away and doesn't let me into a room.
I really want to unlock blue mage and I've waisted days reading and trying to figure this out. Can someone please help me!
