Hey fellow healers! In this guide we discuss the Best-in-Slot White Mage gear and various options we have with the current gear tier. Lets get to it!
Before anything else… I really do NOT like the Augmented Ironworks cane… This is because I value Piety highly, and Crit very low. As such, it will be pushed WAY down in the POE purchasing order. Regarding the table below, Ironworks and Dreadwyrm make a natural “filler” to each other.
|Weapon||Dreadwyrm Cane||Ironworks Magitek Cane ==||High Allagan Crook / Thyrus Nexus|
|Head||Dreadwyrm Hood of Healing||Ironworks Optics of Healing||HA circlet|
|Body||Ironworks Robe of Healing||Arachne Robe or HA||Dreadwyrm Robe of Healing (sucks)|
|Hand||Dreadwyrm Gloves of Healing||Ironworks Gloves of Healing||ANY 110 (Pref HA)|
|Waist||Dreadwyrm Belt of Healing||Ironworks Belt of Healing||ANY 110 (Pref HA)|
|Legs||Dreadwyrm Tonban of Healing ==||Ironworks Slops of Healing||Arachne is AMAZING|
|Boots||Ironworks Thighboots of Healing ==||Dreadwyrm Shoes of Healing||HA or Kirimu|
|Neck||Ironworks Choker of Healing||Dreadwyrm Choker of Healing||Daystar|
|Ears||Ironworks Earrings of Healing||Dreadwyrm Earrings of Healing||ANY 110|
|Wrist||Dreadwyrm Bracelet of Healing||Ironworks Bracelet of Healing||True Ice Bracelet of Healing or Any 110|
|Ring||Ironworks Ring of Healing||HA Ring of Healing||-|
|Ring||Dreadwyrm Ring of Healing||Daystar Ring of Healing||-|
|Food||Triple Cream Coffee >||Pineapple Juice >||Mulled Tea|
For LEGS and BOOTS: the Piety on them outweigh the crit if you’re running low piety on other gear. HOWEVER, please give your Scholar first dibs on the legs. If you reach a point where you feel your mana pool and knowledge of the fight is deep enough, Legs, boots and GLOVES become an irrelevant choice.
We’re pretty freshly into 2.4 so i’ll do a quick and dirty Poe Purchasing order… (We dont know where all pieces of gear drop, yet)
- Chest: An amazing piece of gear for WHM’s. The Dreadwyrm counterpart is pale compared to this.
- Ring: We’re forced to get this, anyway.
- Choker: Dreadwyrm drops in t12
- Earrings: Dreadwyrm drops in t10… so again these are pushed a bit down.
- Shoes: Dreadwyrm drops in t10, and they’re not bad. So buying these are low prio.
- Bracelet: True Ice is a super legit substitute. Just farm Shiva and save these for later.
- Weapon if you’ve got nothin’ else to do.
- Everything else is optional, but if you have nothing to do with your Poetics anyways…
2.4 WHM Crafted Gear Viability
Any gear that has Piety in it is automatically viable. Any gear with Piety and NO CRIT is good.
For now a quick list!
Arachne Culottes – SS or DET IV x2 – then whatever you can afford after.
Kirimu Boots – A decent piece. PIETY IV – DET IV – then whatever you can afford after.
Arachne Robe – While good, the chest is very high in the purchase order so this negates it somehow.
melding for robe: DET IV x2 – then whatever you can afford after.
The rest are okay, and could possibly list melding suggestion after other class BiS’s are complete.
