How do I become a White Mage in ARR?
You need to be a Conjurer (30) and Arcanist (15) First! If you’ve met these requirements, you can go to the White Mage Guildmaster in Camp Tranquil to get your quest to obtain the “Soul of the White Mage”. In FFXIV ARR, becoming a job is as simple as equipping the required Soul. Make sure you’ve finished your class quests!

What’s the White Mage playstyle?
Just like Conjurers, White Mages are mainly Support & Healers.  White Mages take that to the next level, granting two very important tools that Conjurers lacked. A heal over time (Regen). Also, you get a pretty strong AoE attack in Holy.

Regen is an extremely useful spell – more than it initially lets on. It’s an efficient heal that you can cast when things are “safe”, and help you out passively when things begin getting hectic.

What are good White Mage stats?
MND is still the most important stat for White Mages, as it increases Healing Power. Any PIE you gain is welcome, as it increases your maximum MP. For secondary stats you want SPELL SPEED more than CRITICAL CHANCE. Why? Since you cannot heal a guy over his maximum HP, a critical heal will usually be wasted. More often than not you want faster and more consistent healing over a random crit that’s probably going to be wasted anyway.

Determination is always a welcome stat, and should be values higher than Critical Strike Chance.

What are the White Mage Traits?
As of now, there are no advanced job specific traits. You inherit all Conjurer traits you’ve already learned.

What are the White Mage Skills?
Aside from the skills below, you may use any skill you’ve learned as an Conjurer. White Mages also have access to some Arcanist and Thaumaturge skills.
