This guide is just my research and playing around testing

A guide made by Demonicrefusal (Alexander)

So if you are like me you're a BLU that just loves to kick back and campaign a bit to get some extra exp without all the hassle of soloing imps. If so you probably found yourself dying a lot because your shadows get eaten up fast. Well finally i set /NIN aside and didn't feel like level SCH up to I decided /RDM would be something to try. Because I'm lacking the PM missions I don't have the spells and gear I need but here's a basic outlook of the setup and tactics I've looked at and played with.


How Blu/Rdm works

The goal is to keep your enhancing magic up to take less damage while managing your hate, DD, HP and MP. I use for soloing/tanking campaign mobs/bosses.

STR - Helps keep hate with str mod spells.

DEX - Helps keep hate with dex mod spells.

VIT - Helps with taking damage.

MND - Helps with Magic fruit potency which helps with keeping hate.
