About The Author

My passion led to 70+ hours in the game, where I studied all the aspects of Bluebird Farming locations. You can find me on my PSN Tag: SHiNiGaMii.

The Bluebird is a vibrant chicken enemy in Final Fantasy 16. This guide will explain what they do, how to beat them, what they drop, and why they’re a good source of farming ability points.

Key Takeaways

  • Bluebirds are blue-colored bird enemies that drop 40 Ability Points. They can sometimes drop Black Blood, which is sold for 400 Gil.
  • This makes them suitable for early to mid-game grinding.
  • They are found scattered primarily in the Royal Meadows and Sorrowise. 
  • They pose little combat challenge and can easily be staggered by most attacks.
  • Equipping the Wages of Warcraft Accessory will increase the Ability Points earned by 20%. Moreover, the Wages of Warcraft II Accessory can increase the Ability Points received by 40%.

What Are Bluebirds

Bluebirds used to be a minion or pet you could collect in Final Fantasy 14. In Final Fantasy 16, Bluebirds are colorful, overgrown chicken enemies. They have a richly blue feathered body accented by their green tail and heads with a tint of red on their necks.

Moreover, they have black beaks and legs. Their appearance is quite reminiscent of Chocobos.

Bluebirds Location

There are 2 primary locations where you find Bluebirds scattered about.

  1. The Royal Meadows in The Holy Empire of Sanbreque. The quickest way to get there is by fast-traveling to the Northreach Obelisk, alternatively, the Royal Meadows Obelisk.
  2. Sorrowise in The Imperial Province of Rosaria. The quickest way to get there is by fast-traveling to the Martha’s Rest Obelisk.

Bluebirds are straightforward enemies to kill. They can be staggered by almost every attack, and you can probably do hitless runs when you’re grinding them. They don’t offer many rewards except for Ability Points; however, if they drop Black Blood, it can be traded at Charon’s Toll for 400 Gil if you need extra money.

Bluebird Drops Table.


Bluebirds are a great source of Ability Points during the early-mid game phase. I will use Wages of Warcraft to maximize our farming gains, increasing the Ability points earned from each Bluebird by 20% or Wages of Warcraft II Accessory for a 40% bonus.

Here’s the complete guide from getting that to farming Bluebirds. You can skip to step 4 if you don’t want to get these Accessories.

  1. Complete the main story quest, Cid the Outlaw. Alternatively, finish the main story quest, After The Storm, to unlock the same path to the Wages of Warcraft II Accessory.
  2. Head to Charon’s Toll at The Hideaway.
  3. Buy and equip the Wages of Warcraft Accessory.
  4. Change the Gameplay setting from Action-Focused Mode to Story-Focused Mode if it isn’t already.
  5. Fast-travel to the Northreach Obelisk and then trek up (North) to the Royal Meadows.
  6. Kill the 3 Bluebirds in the area. Optionally, kill any other enemies to make the most out of each run.
  7. Rinse and Repeat starting from Step 5.

My Recommendation For Bluebirds Farming

You can also farm Bluebirds in Sorrowise, but the nearest Obelisk to there is the Martha’s Rest Obelisk, which is quite far away, and each trek will add up to a lot of wasted time. But the choice depends on your ease of access and weapons to deal with these birds. One thing that I can say is that these birds are definitely worthy of farming during early to midgame.
