Welcome back! I recently created a mule and got him from 1-99; so I can appreciate the hell you are about to endure. First off, you will want to spam-complete RoV for all those sweet EXP boosting KIs. Once you're done with RoV, you might want to do Ambuscade for a bit to get that gear sets before proceeding to do the Reisenjima ones.

In all honesty I cannot recommend that you play Blm. Since the February 2017 magic accuracy nerf, Blm's use in content is almost non-existent. Blm is really only used for 1 Omen NM (and you have to be perfectly geared for that), sometimes Apex (very well geared, like crazy geared), certain UC NMs, and rarely for Ambuscade. I love Blm, I have it and Sch at Job Points master; but I'd say I only get to play them about once every 7 months for content, I can't even remember the last time I played Sch. Blm's use now is about the same as what you would expect of a Drg.

If you're heart is set on Blm, you will need a different job to gear it. I recommend doing Geo, Run, or Whm. These jobs are brought to almost every fight. The only annoyance of them is that Geo might require you to have Idris (Mythic) for certain tiers.

Please let me you if you have any questions. :x

I once killed a few Lamia Toxophilites on BLM at 75 using my feet and an xbox controller... (I spent too much time at that camp). So I can appreciate how a foot infection could hinder your ability to play for three years.

Wait ... huh?! I suspect this is a troll post but I will bite anyway. BLM is used in a LOT of content. Vagary is pretty much BLM only (at least how our group does it). A lot of Geas Fete NMs make use of magic burst off of SCHs. Apex mobs do not require "crazy gear" -- even ambuscade gear provides sufficient accuracy to get you started. Certainly better gear will make life more pleasant as a BLM, and getting the better shinies will require that you play more than just one job.

Not at all a troll post. I didn't know about the Vagary part, but I guess that's because I never do Vagary.

For Apex I'm rather spoiled in terms of kill speeds, so with the plain Ambuscade gear I tend to find that Blms cannot keep up with a fully buffed Sam. Brd, Cor, Geo, Whm, tank, Sam; asssuming the Sam is fully geared, will get kills in roughly 1 3-4 step. Doesn't even need REMA. But with Blms, you will need 3-4 Light Scs using Ambuscade gear. Even if you have 50% MB armor, you won't be able to put parse a MBing Smn on Apex. Now, I've been in Japanese Apex parties that have used Blms / Schs and the new crafting gears to down the mobs faily quickly. But I have yet to see any English players match it; but it is possible I've just gotten unlucky.
