White Mage

White Mage (WHM) Actions, Traits and Role Actions


FFXIV - Disciples of Magic - White Mage
While it is commonly known that Gridania's leaders, the three Seedseer siblings, are unsurpassed in their mastery of conjury, none save a few souls are aware that they are also keepers of white magic, the arcane art of succor.
Taking healing and protection for its dominion, white magic came into existence eras past in order that the destructive force of black magic be kept in check and balance preserved.

Over time, however, even those who donned the white came to pervert their powers for the sake of personal gain, a decaying of virtue that led to the demise of the men of the Fifth Astral Era.

Though thought to have become buried in the sands of history, white magic is in the midst of revival at the hands of the Padjal, who desire that the light of succor shine throughout Eorzea.

Patch 1.21 saw the introduction of jobs to FFXIV, which allows you to become one of the traditional jobs from the FF series after completing a quest.


A Conjurer can become a White Mage by equipping the Soul of the White Mage item after completing the first quest. The details for this quest are below.

Quest NPC Location Conditions
Seer Folly E-Sumi-Yan Gridania, Conjurers' Guild CNJ 30

For each quest you complete, you will be rewarded with a new ability, while the latter quests will also reward you with artifact (AF) armour that is shown in the screenshot above.


Introduction to White Mage


White Mage is a classic healing job that branches off Conjurer. Its role is to restore the HP of party members that take damage from monsters, cure bad status effects from party members and to revive fallen members of the party upon death. The White Mage can also deal damage with Holy, Aero and Stone but this should be seen as secondary to everything else.


Attributes


As a White Mage your main attribute is Mind (MND) as this increases healing magic potency. You should be focusing on equipment with this stat. For secondary stats you should be focusing on the likes of Spell Speed, Direct Hit Rate, Determination and Critical Hit Rate in addition to simply boosting MND.

Spell Speed and Critical Hit Rate are self explantory in what they do. For the other two, Determination is used to boost the damage dealt by all attacks and the amount of HP recovered when healed while Direct Hit Rate is Stormblood's replacement for Accuracy. Instead of a simple hit or miss effect that Accuracy could give, having low Direct Hit Rate for a fight will reduce damage dealt so it is important to improve this stat.


Actions


Actions are skills that the White Mage can equip to their bar and select to use at any time as long as their timer is available. Actions used in a combo will generate additional damage and effects. All White Mage actions are exclusive to that job.

Role Actions


Since the Stormblood expansion for FFXIV, cross class actions were removed and replaced with the concept of "role" actions. Role actions are more generic as they don't belong to specific classes, but instead to roles such as melee DPS, magic DPS, healer or tank. The White Mage can equip up to 5 of these.

Name Level Cast Recast MP TP Range Radius


PvP Actions


From the Stormblood expansion PvP was revamped significantly and you can no longer use PvE actions during PvP battles. That means all of the actions above you can no longer use in PvP. Action Points (AP) were also removed. While some of the dedicated PvP actions do have the same name, they will have different potencies or effects. Below are the PvP actions that are unique to the White Mage. There exists even more PvP actions and even traits but these are not unique to the White Mage. You can find these further down the page.

Correct, BLM only. WHM would be too strong if they could do that.

It most likely isn't the case but can anyone tell me with certainty if you cast ice II as a cnj/whm, will you be bestowed umbral ice and regain mana? Its just a black mage thing right?

wow is white mage a hard job to handle in this game. I have played mmorpgs for the 13 years or so and in most cases i have played support class i.e contollor or white mage and never had a problem. so this is my question to all of you would you say that i should unlock the cross class abiltys before starting the end-game content.

White mage has a MP restoration skill. Shroud of Saints also applies Regen ^^

@Tabby [Anon]: At level 38 you get "Shroud of Saints" which reduces enmity by half but also puts a 15s buff on you that restores MP (Refresh Potency: 60). At level 48 this is increased to Refresh Potency: 80. You can use this every 2 minutes.

Can I just say, that I'm upset that Conjurer/White Mage doesn't have access to any MP restoration skills? 3:
