Profile[edit | edit source]
The White Mage's equipment includes staves and maces (as well as hammers in the original Final Fantasy), but in later installments they more commonly use magical rods instead. Their armor is limited to lightweight vests and mage robes. Their physical stats are usually higher than those of a Black Mage, but are not as high as some other classes. Their magic stats, of course, are high, though they tend to be a bit lower than a Black Mage or a Summoner.
The most prominent ability of a White Mage is to cast White Magic, which usually includes healing and support magic, but may also include status effect spells. In later installments, the White Mages have been given the ability Pray, in which the party's HP would be minimally restored for no cost. Their ability to heal, protect, and resurrect fallen members of the party make White Mages invaluable, as they are usually the only efficient way of healing.
White Mages tend to dress in white robes with red triangular lining. They tend to lean towards lighter armor, generally robes, and their robes are trimmed with red triangles that usually flare out from cuffs, around hems, or on the lining of the hood if they wear one. Most White Mages are female, but some males have been White Mages as well. Male White Mages generally do not wear hoods. Sometimes Summoners can also cast White Magic. The recurring White Robe and Cat-Ear Hood are related to this job. The White Mage is associated with one offensive attack, called Holy.
Appearances[edit | edit source]
Although lacking in offensive power, White Mages are valuable due to their healing abilities. The upgraded White Wizard is even more powerful, having the ability to cast Full-Life and Holy.
The White Mage job is gained from the Wind Crystal. White Mages excel in assisting the party with defensive and restorative White Magic. Some offensive magic is also available (Light and Wind). They possess low Attack power and Defense. After Devout becomes available, they only become back-up healers if there is a Devout and White Mage in the same party. Aria Benett, Sara Altney, Prince Alus and Unei aid the party with White Magic.
The White Mage job is held by one of the shards of the Wind Crystal. Its job abilities grant access to White Magic.
Though there is no job system, Aeris is often considered a White Mage, as she has high magic stats, equips rods and staves, and her Limit Breaks heal and buff the party. She owns the White Materia, the source of the ultimate White Magic spell, Holy.
Dagger and Eiko cast White Magic along with Summon Magic, although Eiko has a greater dominance over it, while Dagger favors summoning. The latter also dresses in the traditional White Mage robes as a disguise early on.
The White Mage is one of the six base jobs. It is the most adept at healing and the only job with the ability to heal almost all debuffs. White Mages use traditional supportive magic as well as a limited number of status-inflicting spells.
Lightning can obtain a garb modeled after the White Mage job at the start of Day 4 from a treasure cube in the Ark. It has the abilities Dispel Lv. 2 and Quick Ruin Lv. 2, and the passive ability, Soul of the White Mage, which increases maximum HP by 5% and magic damage by 10%. Normal healing spells attributed to being white magic can't be used by Lightning as a normal ability, but she can use Curaga for 2 EP (Normal/Hard mode) or 1 EP (Easy mode) from the pause menu.
Conjurers who complete their level 30 class quest can obtain a Soul of the White Mage, allowing them to switch between class and job at will.

The best race to use the White Mage is the nu mou, due to their superior magic growth. Viera should only use the White Mage when necessary (i.e. to unlock more powerful jobs).
