no, only some spells will have 4th tier monsters. Most of them will be learnable anytime. Some spells will be missable, and some will be as common as .. well a goblin, lol.

hmm well use white wind, i dont know what monster will let you learn it tho, perhaps the rare white chocobo. All the skills im 100% certain of using are listed on the first post.

White chocobo isn't a bad idea, however unless you get reallllllly lucky, you won't learn it, short of taming the monster. (only thieves can do that, right?)

hey Zozma, for ur X-Zone skill couldnt u have it as an insta-kill and also causes Jump status so the enemy would leave the battle field?

thats interesting, but death and jump aren't stackable are they, if they were u could be targetted by those kinds of skills while your lancers are in flight....

as for the rare monsters, well that would simply make white wind one of the hard to get skills. i guess if you have a way to confuse the enemy they might cast it. but you cant tame 4th tier monsters

So does the white chocobo class as rare - map only? or is there a chance for it to be bred with normal monsters? Or is it a rare tier4?

there are at least 3  "4th" tier Chocobos btw, however, the other two do not have any blue magic as of yet.

and yes, chances are it will appear only one 1 map (not randomly on that map, randomly on one of the randoms only. so very rare

What about Circle and Knife Hand?

Maybe some of those "Soul" skills the skeletons have as well maybe?

Maybe they can learn some of the Calculator's old skills to sort of fill in the traditional "Lvl5 Death" or something.

theres no way to do the calculator skill properly.
as for the "soul" skills they are blue magics for the 4 element characters.

thunder soul could be used that way tho if anyone is interested.

Edit: Okay so i have a new idea for X-Zone per razele's idea. its just that its not blue mage-able so it will definately be just one of Balmafula's arch witch skills. The skill will petrify + wall or something to the effect of being unable to remove the frozen CT. I might use "vanish" status as well to show an effect making it look like they are only partially in this plane.
actually, instead of "petrify" it will probably be dark/evil looking

And, Knife hand wouldnt make sense to use as a blue mage because it, like all other monster attack skills is equal to an unarmed human, martial arts would strengthen it but its then just like a barehanded attack.

I could make "thunder soul" blue magic since the 4 elemental specials learn the other soul skills. or i could make "throw spirit" learnable and that would be like a long range physical attack.

hmm...zozma if you edit the stautes in FFTPatcher you can make it so jumo and death are stackable. can enemies even target you if your in flight? i though there was no way to target anything in flight or if you could it would be auto-0% chance of hitting.

You can't target the unit individually whilst in flight, but you can target the panel where he will land. I don't know if the death counter ticks down whilst in flight though.

and i just thought jump was a status, and thats why they have it not stackable with anything. have you tested out the targetting thingy? because it would really make X-zone more realistic if it moved them somewhere that u couldnt reach them

im pretty sure that if your in flight you cannot be targeted. Jump is a status just like death if you make so they can stack they can stack on each other but since jumps affect is to avoid all attacks in the air it wont be affected by death
