It's self explanatory, just use it with your mouse.

1. open the windower console (default key `)
2. type 'lua load bluguide' and press enter
3. close the console.
4. There will be a list on the left (your active spells) 5 buttons and then lists of spells on the right.
5. Pick your spell setup and then click the close button.

-> To unequip a spell, click its name from the list on the left.
-> To equip a spell, click its name from one of the lists on the left.
-> 4 of the buttons are to change the sorting of the spell lists. I think its broken up into traits, support, damage, and element.

-> After choosing your spells and closing the app, you may need to use 'lua load bluguide' again to double check that they were all added properly. Often times some spells don't get added correctly. It happens quite often, unfortunately, a very buggy tool.

-> If you don't have 1200 JP on blu then don't rely on bluguide to tell you the level of traits you're going to get. The plugin says that it compensates for your JP level, but the programmer *** it up and it doesn't actually work. I had to go in and modify the code myself to make it work correctly. No you cant have my version, I don't care enough to bother uploading or sharing it.

-> I recommend using Azuresets to supplement your blu spell switching. Once you've made a set of spells you like with bluguide, you can save that spell loadout with azuresets to quickly reload it later. Azuresets also has fantastic documentation.

Just tried this addon, and it disables my mouse after a few seconds (completely freezes my typing/resize potential as well). I can move my character, but could not type or click any of the spells that appeared on the list. Had to force DC. Any idea what's up with the app?

BluGuide and Azuresets are not interchangeable.

One is very useful for building blue magic sets, the other is very useful for saving and recalling sets.

Both are very nice QoL tools for a bluemage.
