    Blue Mage Skillchains

    I haven't been able to find a collection of BLU's physical attack placement in the skillchain system.

    Post your findings below to help compile a master list that can eventually be used to update a skillchain chart. I'm not too keen on exact elements, so I'm going to equate them to commonly used WS's (it's what helps me remember it at least).

    Claw Cyclone = Fast Blade (closes Distortion)

    Jet Stream = Combo (closes Fusion)

    Jet Stream would be Thunder element (same as Combo)
    Sickle Slash would be Dark element (same as Penta Thrust)
    Screwdriver would be Light element (same as Blade:Rin or Power Slash)

    and a couple others I've heard:

    Bludgeon is Fire element (like Burning Blade)
    Smite is Wind element (like Gust Slash)

    Apparently the SC effects are controlled partially by what level the BLU is. I've heard that one spell closes Liquidation until 50, past which it closes Fusion.

    I'm 46 right now, and I've been closing Fusion with Jet Stream the entire time. I haven't seen any changes in the behavior as of yet -- I read this too, but I'm thinking it's a misobservation.

    I think what happened with that is the SC was accidently reversed. If you reverse the WS to make Fusion, you'll get Liquefaction and vice virsa.

    Theres no real way that 2 different WS (or in this case, "BLU magic according to level") could close liquification and fusion with the same starting WS. Look at a SC chart. In order to start a Fusion chain, you havev to start with a Fire WS (like Burning Blade). Starting from there, there is no way possible to make a Liquefication chain.

    Bit of a "duh" thing, but from this:

    Jet Stream would be Thunder element (same as Combo)
    Sickle Slash would be Dark element (same as Penta Thrust)
    Screwdriver would be Light element (same as Blade:Rin or Power Slash)

    and a couple others I've heard:

    Bludgeon is Fire element (like Burning Blade)
    Smite is Wind element (like Gust Slash)


    Looking at the way Avatar Blood Pacts were set up, I don't think its entirely likely that BLU magic would be given multiple element properties (like how Slug Shot is Water/Light/Wind). Who knows though, since not much testing has actually been done.

    Anyone notice that 1000 needles is listed on there?

    Seriously, is it physical or magical? >_<

    It's PHYSICAL. Read the other post on it. SE made a mistake on the spell description. All tests point to physical it seems. ^^

    Cyberfoxx: GOOD FIND. Thank you!!

    So is this indeed "fact"? that 1000 needles was mistakenly labelled and it is in fact physical?


    Possibly sneak attack will make it a 100% success rate rather than up the dmg?

    Go test ! go go galka!
