— In-game description
1000 Needles is an action unlocked at level 1. It's available for Blue Mage.
Highly famed─and feared─due to its frequent use by cactuars, 1000 Needles showers one's surroundings with a hail of slim projectiles. Despite their magical nature, the velocity at which the blue mage's pseudo-spines are propelled ensures that they are quite as painful as the real thing.
- Level 24 Sabotender Bailaor in Flower Power Levequest in Southern Thanalan (x18,y13)
- Level 26 Sabotender Bailaor in Southern Thanalan (x16,y15)
Sabotender Bailaor just outside Little Ala Mhigo use 1000 Needles very frequently.
- Helpful Hint: At 16,16 you can find one that's close enough to pull up to the L35 Brass Blade at the entrance to Little Ala Mhigo. The little guy will help you beat them if you're struggling!
- Best leveling spell for BLU early on. Not recommended past level 50 as most average spells will surpass 1000 Needles.
