    BLU spell learning

    I see a lot of people losing the plot over these and shouting at the trollers (or it might just be Ragnarok.. idk) but you can learn the spells from any mob that uses it, doesn't have to be the ones in the zones specifically listed in the Blue Mage spellbook. Levequests work too.

    Heh thanks for that, unfortunately, I saw this thread a bit too late but at least I know I can hunt for self-destruct(I'm lvl21) somewhere else. Getting Final Sting earlier was a pain in the ass, since I only knew it game from the Kill Waspes(and not the lvl13 regular ones in the area >_>).

    Not from what I have seen, learning spells is more of a question of are YOU high enough level to hit that mob first.

    You can learn Self-Destruct very easily from Halatali. Simply enter solo, kill the first two mobs and then pull the roaming bomb. If you fail to learn simply repeat.
    Also a great spell combo I've been using to solo higher level enemies is Sticky Tongue>Acorn Bomb> 1000 Needles. You can oneshot stuff up to level 31 in Eastern La Noscea (you can miss if you're too low), lvl 32 will live with a pixel of health.

    Sticky Tongue > 1k Needles is enough when you can one shot mobs.
    Later on a great spell to replace acorn bomb is Ram's Voice.

    Can you learn Level 5 Petrify from the Sentry before the final boss in Haukke Manor or does it have to be the one that spawns inside?

    I think primal spells are restricted (likely due to data structure, knowing XIV lol) but the rest are designed to work at level 1. So while you can learn everything at level 1, you still need to be 50 for the primal ones it seems.

    Unsure, but on last boss, if Sentry doesn't give you the skill, you can have you/your party wipe to reset the fight and try again.

    Probably not, as him changing to npc doesn't count as dying

    Primal skills: they seem to be harder to learn than anything before, but I'm starting to see reports saying you can get them in hard mode so that's nice

    FYI can learn some of the Primal spells from Hard modes. Don't have to do Extreme. Ifrit/Titan/Ramuh for sure

    Shiva's bow attack is Extreme exclusive and I'm quite sure Leviathan's Veil is also an exclusive mechanic in Extreme. Shock Strike should be in Hard though.

    Well, trying to learn Veil of the Whorl in Leviathan hard, since it is just his reflect buff and he has it up in hard mode too.

    edit: You definitely can learn it in hard.

    Good so it's only Shiva that requires Extreme.
