Some of them are extremely useful to have, moreso the later level ones like Charged Whisker. Earlier on though, most of the Blu spells aren't worth it for the sake of their damage, but some can be useful in setting job traits.

Thanks for advice. I just don't to spend 4 hrs or more getting a spell that isn't worth using or having.

Sheep song and filamented hold are the only low level ones that I can think of that could have some use later on.

That said, Dream Flower replaces Sheep song later, so you could give it a miss. All the higher level AoEs can and should see some use. Most of the lower level ones are stepping stones or useless compared to their higher counterparts.

It's worth getting spells as you go along if you can. At least check out the traits and make sure you aren't skipping anything that gives a trait later. If you're burning I guess you can skip stuff but you're going to feel sheepish if someone asks you to set it and you don't have a level 25 spell that's easy to get.

Also keep in mind even if there are higher level spells that do the same thing, sometimes you'll be tight on points and the 2 points for sheep song vs 3 for other options (if you just want to set a sleep just in case) can make a difference.

Also while you are leveling some of them have nice stat boosts, even if you wouldn't necessarily cast them.

Anyway, do what you want. Is it worth getting as many spells as you can? In my opinion, yes. Can you live without a lot of them? For sure.
