White Mage (WHM) Cross-class skills discussion
Ruin: Useless. Use Stone II over this anyday.
Physick: Still useless. Cure is still more synergistic with your overall kit.
Surecast: Useful in PvP! It’s use in PvE is extremely rare, but it still deserves one of the 5 slots.
Ice II: A weak potency AoE attack, with a bind effect. It’s your only choice for AoE until holy (But this is really weak…). This is really good in PvP though!
Virus: The second best WHM cross-class skill. Reduces boss physical damage, great for heavy damage phases.
Eye for an Eye: Admittedly this isn’t exactly game-breaking, but useful enough. A % chance to have the striker deal less damage is just way too inconsistent, but any increase is defense is always good.
Swiftcast: THE BEST CROSS-CLASS SKILL of all time. The sheer effectiveness of Swiftcast on White Mage is just insane. Along with Benediction, this becomes an “anti-wipe” on a 60 second cooldown. Pure insanity. Maximizing Swiftcast will cause the reversal of many otherwise failed raids. (Yes, Swiftcast + Raise works)
Ideal White Mage (WHM) Cross-class progression
- Conjurer to 15 for: Unlocking other classes.
- Conjurer to 30 for: WHM Requirement.
- Arcanist to 15 for: WHM Requirement.
- Conjurer to 50 for: Maximum level.
- Thaumaturge to 6 for: Thunder
- Thaumaturge to 27 for: Swiftcast
- Arcanist to 34 for: Eye for an Eye (All Cross-class skills obtained)
Getting THM 6 is a step you should not skip. It’s absolutely worth the trouble, as you will be using Thunder for the rest of your life as a White Mage, and makes levelling up much less painful.
- White Mages use skills from: Arcanist and Thaumaturge.
- Learn to use Virus early and often!
- Swiftcast is amazing. Get it and practice using it. It will save many raids.
