— In-game description
Glass Dance is an action unlocked at level 1. It is available for Blue Mage.
To fully replicate this technique, beloved of Shiva, the blue mage calls forth a bow of aether from which she fires a hail of razor-sharp icicles. Those who knew the lady Ysayle believe that Glass Dance may have taken form from her memories of observing hunters in Tailfeather.
- This spell, along with Feather Rain, are the only two spells that can only be acquired from extreme-difficulty content. If recruiting a full party of players and completing the extreme trial synced proves to be difficult, one can acquire the spell at level 70+ soloing unsynced. The drop rate is not guaranteed unsynced, however, so multiple attempts are likely needed.
- Shiva casts Glass Dance after bringing out her bow late in the fight. After her add phase, burn her to 10% or so and wait for her to say "Arrows of frost--", perform the bow-drawing animation, and actually cast Glass Dance. It's possible to kill her before she gets the cast off it you're unsynced, solo, and 70--so be careful!
