-What's your favorite job class?
-I like the blue mages.
a type of hybrid character used in Final Fantasy games in which a charater is able to use the special skills/magics of an enemy. Also known as Enemy Skills in the 7th installment of Final Fantasy. Spells like White Wind and Mighty Guard are typical Blue Mage skills.
That Blue Mage should have used Mighty Guard before the boss used that 5,000 damage move; we probably would have lived.
