    Out of the BLU Discussion

    Since the guide has eclipsed 100,000 view I figured there should probably be a thread for it.

    Feel free to ask any BLU questions or suggestions for the guide here.

    Added the new BLU .luas I made to the guide as well as instructions on getting started with gearswap.

    Also updated food choices because why not.

    August is the two year anniversary of the guide as well. Whe~ew.

    I made myself a spreadsheet to check off spells. Would this be of use to the guide? Basic sheet links to the BG-wiki spell pages, and monster family for each. Then did a sheet that color-coded the spells the guide says you can skip.

    Also, I'm in eFlooziesXI as Hary.

    Hey, thanks.

    Send it to me over the eFlooziesXI discord.

    Chances are I'd be glad to add I to the guide.



    EDIT: It ended up just being better to stick with the option we already have on the wiki.

    So I just got done skimming through this and I have to say it's a good read. And I want to say something else. I've given you shit about shitposting in General and what not, but dude, you are really great at posting XI stuff. Really great work that you should be proud of. I honestly do not recall anything about you on other forums but here, at least in XI, I don't think I've seen bad posts. Maybe that Drg shit, but lolDrg. Thanks for your contributions.

    Heh, I never held anything personal against you either

    Thanks.

    I feel the need to skim and try and cut down on text in guides like the BLU one. To make it more in line with how I have been handling the DRG, RUN, THF, 1-119. Maintenance on a lot of text is a nightmare (already completely rewrote Out of the BLU once already), so I have been trying to get away from the first guides like Out of the BLU and Returning to Vana'diel with all their text. At the same time Out of the BLU remains the only guide I purposely like to throw stupid shit and puns into all over the place, sort of it's thing.

    It has been awhile, and the guide is due for yet another update/style improvement, but I am still working on the wiki in general more.
    Aiming for a December/January line in the sand on getting to that though. More or less I wanted to finish the user page stuff for the general wiki use, and just put my endgame sets for BLU there since I am staying away from having endgame sets in the guide.

    At any rate, I added the +2/3 relic set "SHOULD I MAKE THIS?!" notes to the guide.

    Removed the old endgame crap at the bottom, and I am writing about my take on BLUs place/role in specific events. This is being done on a "okay, I am in the right mood" basis, and will obviously be better than "here is my solo video for this NM" with a few paragraphs beneath it.
