Blue Mage
   Blue Mage is a wisdom/will based job which learns its spells from enemies. The skills have widely varying effects compared to abilities in jobs such as Wizard.

   In order to learn a spell from an enemy, you must be in the Blue Mage job, or have Learning set as your inherent ability. Most spells are obtained when an enemy casts them on you. You must survive the attack in order to learn the ability. Some of the spells are defensive; enemies will only cast these spells on themselves. In these cases, killing the enemy will cause it to drop an item which teaches you the spell.
   Frog Drop is a unique case: it is learned from eating frogs, which can appear randomly anywhere in the game.
   Lore is the primary skill set of the Blue Mage job. Lores are learned from enemies you face. To learn a lore, you must be the target of a lore skill that can be learned, and survive the attack. There are also job level requirements to learn Lore spells, so if at first you do not learn the lore, come back when you've advanced to a higher job level.
   Certain enemies use lores only on themselves. In this case, you must kill the enemy and pick up the item that it drops and use it to learn the Lore. Alternately, you can use the Blue Mage inherent skill Learning to learn Lore spells while you are in a different job, but you must still meet the job level requirement in Blue Mage.
   In addition to the locations listed, most enemies can be randomly found on the Veldt, if one is lucky. Bosses and town citizens, however, will never appear on the Veldt.
