Best FFXIV Blue Mage Spells, Ranked (6.57)

Ranking the best spells FFXIV Blue Mage spells to add to your grimoire Best FFXIV Blue Mage Spells

The Blue Mage is a limited job in FFXIV that is built around a wide variety of offensive and defensive utility spells.

Blue Mage spells are “stolen” from the enemy mobs you encounter across Eorzea; more than a hundred different spells with unique capabilities. At the same time, this job lets you swap these spells in and out freely, making it highly customizable.

Unfortunately, not every spell available to blue mages are good. There are also a lot of factors to consider when you're designing a particular blue mage. So to help you build your next blue mage, we put together an updated tierlist of all FFXIV Blue Mage Spells.

Best FFXIV Blue Mage Spells in Patch 6.57

We placed spells on each tier based on spell effectiveness and overall versatility. Rankings are highly subjective, and F-tier spells can still be great if you enjoy using them.
