Limited jobs are jobs designed for casual solo play, with mechanics that are not balanced for grouping.
Currently the only limited job is the Blue Mage.
Blue mage is the first of several planned Limited Jobs in FINAL FANTASY XIV. As such, there are several key points that distinguish it from other jobs.
Blue mage functions independently of other classes and jobs, starting at level 1 with a maximum level of 70.
When playing as a blue mage, it is possible to participate in duties with other players in preformed or undersized parties. However, the following duties will remain inaccessible:
- Duty Roulettes
- Field Operations
- It is not possible to change to blue mage after entering these instances.
- Squadron Missions
- Deep Dungeons
- PvP, including duels
- It is possible, however, to enter the Wolves' Den as a blue mage.
- Stone, Sky, Sea
- Hall of the Novice
Blue mages gain greater experience from battling enemies in the open world than other jobs do.
Blue mage cannot be used to progress through the main scenario.
Retainers cannot be assigned the blue mage job.
