Looter, summons slaves
Blue Slimes are very common in the caves of Nivalis. It looks like they are accompanied by two smaller blue slimes, but one of them is directly connected to the Blue Slime itself and therefore not really a separate monster, while the other one is another mob called Slime Blast.
Many people don't understand the behavior of Blue Slimes, which can cause problems fighting them or monsters in the same area. Blue Slimes themselves are peaceful monsters that won't attack you unless you attack them, but they endlessly summon aggressive Slime Blasts that will rush you and self destruct. Since self destruct uses splash damage, this harms not only the player targetted by the Slime Blasts, but also other players nearby.
Another problem is that the damage caused by selfdestruct isn't shown as a number on the battle screen. It is hidden, so you often don't realize you got hurt and maybe even die surprisingly. This can be avoided by immediately killing the Slime Blast, but here goes another trouble: when they spawn while other mobs are around it, it gets hard to immediately target and kill them. Adding them to the priority attack list can help. When you kill the Blue Slime, its slave, Slime Blast, will die too, but as long as the Blue Slime lives, it will summon another Slime Blast a few seconds after you killed the previous one. This behavior often makes Blue Slimes underestimated, but they aren't too strong.
Furthermore, Blue Slimes are looters.
If you're in it for the drops, it is a better idea to hunt White Slimes for Book Pages or Ice Cubes, if you are able to kill them in one hit, since they are far easier and faster to kill. Ice Goblins are a good source for Ice Cubes too. Sapphires are also dropped by Terranites who give better experience and other very useful drops, but are harder and slower to kill. However, Blue Slimes are the only mobs that drop Iced Water which is required in the quest about The Illia Sisters.
