Gentlemen, we can rebuild it. We have the capability to make the world's first enhanced store. Steam will be that store. Better than it was before.

I've been having a blast with the Blue Mage. I love collecting the monster moves, and I especially love that regular enemies give me tons of EXP (like dungeon enemies do on other jobs). I've got a pretty solid combo set up now with 1,000 needles, mind blast, then water cannon - which can usually kill non-agro enemies about 7-8 levels higher than me in about 3-4 moves.

I wish I could play as a blue mage in my regular dungeon roulette, but I understand they don't want people coming in with a super goofy / broken skill loadout - or no skills at all.

Blue Mage is indeed awesome, and I'm glad you understand why it wouldn't fit into the standard trinity mold of the game. Unfortunately, a lot of players still can't seem to wrap their heads around that fact, or are still caught up on the single instance that SE said it would be a solo job (which was specifically in regard to the Masked Carnivale). But I digress - it's great fun to level and play. Enjoy it!

Also, the next month should provide some good fun with full-BLU Heavensward raids for the Moogle Tomestone event.

New raid fights are fun. I found the story a little boring.
I also liked the Ruby Weapon fight.

Between the gathering dailies and the fishing boat thing level is really quick. I've taken my fisher from 71 to 77 in 2 days without much effort.
