SE's "Vision" for BLMFollow

Vision
Elemental magic wielders that bring colossal amounts of firepower to the battlefield, yet are weighed down heavily by the responsibility that accompanies such unbridled destruction.

Black mages know their role, and they know what they need to ensure triumph: more powerful magic. We'll continue to introduce elements that increase both the risks and rewards for these potent spellcasters.

Example Adjustments

Adding new abilities that increase the likelihood of dealing more elemental magic damage at the cost of greater risk.
Adding a new ability that makes the next spell cast cost 0 MP.


Pretty straight forward, but I figured a news/discussion thread was in order. The 'free spell' JA was a long time coming, as was 'Flashy Shot for BLMs', the glass cannon of the mage world.

Get bent.

Are you talking about Manawell, which was announced for the next update? If so, I doubt Manawell will cause Conserve MP to proc, since the JA is described as eliminating the cost of the next spell. Conserve MP reduces MP cost, but it doesn't eliminate it.

That makes me wonder if Conserve MP can proc when Manawell eliminates MP cost. I suppose SE could make Conserve MP still proc, even though it is reducing 0 MP cost to 0 MP, so that Empyrean +2 set bonus can still kick in.

It doesn't force a conserve MP (ie. no set proc), it is a new status. You can use it on other people though.
