Everything looks great so far, one thing I'd add: Gaze attacks don't require being face-to-face per se. They require YOU to be in the MOB's face, but you don't necessarily have to be facing the mob. Case in point - when fighting tauruses, and facing away to avoid doom, you can still land Blank Gaze or Chaotic Eye on them. It's not exactly the way it works for mobs, but it's true for us.

Ah yea, that's a very good point, I should clarify on that a bit more.

Good idea as well, maybe I'll add a Campaign section 60+ (I got most of my XP from Campaign 65-75 too lol)

Ya, I'll probably go back and add some different spellsets when I'm done - I just wanna get this thing finished cuz I have a completion problem lol

Thanks for all the positive feedback so far!

Thanks, credit goes to Idmovies for suggesting the guide. It's something I feel we should have had for awhile but never got around to doing. And any suggestions you have will always be helpful. I've been 75 for awhile, so I forgot a few spells I had set at certain times. This is harder to write than it looks lol. And the code menus are a total pain in the ***!

I used TA+Mandibular Bite, which was easy on the MP but not terribly damaging


Personally, I found TA sickle slash to be the ideal choice for this. It was even my bread and butter for dmg along with jet stream. Don't know if that would earn a spot in your guide since I might be the only one feeling this way, but I thought I should put it out there.

I would also add Crow/Raven for the legs spot for those of us who can't stand wearing subligar, its good for spell casting too with the -enmity since the +atk won't help it at all.

I'm all for not exping in AF, but I do have to say in the defense of the poor, the keffiyeh and charuqs are probably the hardest pieces to replace. I have a pair of leaping boots, and HQ Tabin Boots aren't THAT expensive, but since I just joined a limbus LS (yay I have sea access) I can't afford to drop 50k on a pair of boots. And Charuqs probably beat out NQ Tabin Boots, at least in my opinion. Shalwar versus PubSub, I think is a matter of choice - I got tired of my naked legs and underwear fast.

But absolutely and 100% do I agree with you that you should never never never never TP or WS in Jubbah or Bazubands. Scorpion Harness, Battle Gloves, Pallas's Bracelets, anything but those.

Sure, do you remember where you fit the spells in? I never bothered with it much since they take up too much space. Early levels you don't have enough MP for it to matter much and you don't want to rest too much once you break into AU areas, as you'll lose your TP (may as well just throw on your Dark Staff) resting.

Cool, thanks for the input! Leaving SS in would be better, I agree, just gotta shuffle points around a bit more since it's BMP4 compared to MB's BMP2.

Yea, I hear ya but if you have time to farm for spells, you should have time to farm for gil as well. Walkure Mask and Tabin Boots will run you ~50k for the pair on Bismarck these days for a nice improvement over AF. Republigar, yea... I understand where you're coming from about looking at legs for that long. Then again I'm Mithra, so I never minded!

Love what's in here.

I've also thought about doing a level-by-level guide to tanking on BLU, since I did it from 15ish to 55 and off and on again til 65. I'll either put it in the same format or just let you grab it and include it in yours. However, there's enough difference that I think it might deserve its own guide.

Also consider Cobra Unit fighter's gear at level 68. Store TP and -enmity can improve a BLUs performance significantly, particularly where it concerns the hands, legs, and feet.

Thanks! And yea, I say go for the making the guide. I wouldn't mind adding it to this one at all but I'd definitely encourage you to make your own. It's easier said than done though lol

Ya, I totally agree but this is basically a spell guide and not an equipment guide. I just threw those few 50s to early 60s pieces in there as alternatives to wearing the AF during those levels. More of a "Here's some reasonably cheap, and superior to Magus, gear that you can wear in place of your AF" for the people who claim they "can't find anything better to use" during the AF levels. Sorry, again, major pet-peeve of mine.

Why are you listing Frightful Roar and Self-Destruct instead of Actinic Burst* for Auto Refresh? Just curious.

Edited to not be stupid.

Definitely a good question - I prefer the +2 STR from Self-Destruct and defense down of Frightful Roar over the seldomly-used-in-XP Actinic Burst. More personal preference than anything. AB is great in Campaign (among other things) though, which I mentioned and then subsequently forgot to add to my Campaign spellset, doh!

Lol thanks, I really appreciate it coming from you, seeing as For Glory helped me tremendously with getting through CoP. I'm glad to see it's back up and running!

One thing that not many people know about frenetic rip is, it has a very high innate attack. When you're hitting very high defense monster, you will find, more often than not, your frenetic rip outdamaging your disseverment.
