Unique among mages. Can "learn" monster techs.
The Blue Mage (青魔道士, Aomadoushi?) is a job in Final Fantasy Tactics Advance granted only to humes. Blue Mages in Final Fantasy Tactics Advance wield sabers, and, in addition to the standard ability to learn monster abilities, can gain the ability to be immune to certain status ailments. As with the Blue Mages from most games in the series, they learn their abilities by being struck by the ability they are trying to learn.
It is notable that many abilities, such as White Wind, can only be learned when a Beastmaster in the party is controlling the monster or it is under the effects of charm, as a creature would never normally cast a healing or enhancing spell on an opponent.
Blue Mages cannot learn abilities from Morphers or allied Blue Mages; they must be learned from either the original monster or an opponent Blue Mage. Blue Mages are best used as a support job, especially due to the wide range of healing and support magic they can learn.
Goblins and Thundrakes will eventually become extinct, so Goblin Punch and Dragon Force must be obtained before then. The last opportunity for Dragon Force is Ogma the Worldwyrm (Mission #088 The Worldwyrm), one of the post-completion missions. Goblin Punch can be acquired from the Dark Knight in Mission #097 The Dark Blade, also post-completion.
