How do I become a White Mage in ARR?
You need to to level a Conjurer to 30 and complete the Sylph-management MSQ before you can unlock the WHM quest. Once you’re done with these requirements, go to the Conjurer’s Guildmaster in Old Gridania (6,11) for the job quest. You will be rewarded with the Soul of the White Mage crystal. Equip this and you will automatically upgraded to WHM.
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.
