Job Description

White Mages suck! Boo! No, seriously, it's easy to miss how bad they are, but they are. Here's how. They have quite a bit less Magic Power than, say, Black Mages or Summoners. In addition, they can equip neither Rods nor Knives. Throughout its career, the White Mage can boost neither Black spells nor even the powerful Wind-elemental attack of the Summoner. Not counting the very end where, through a single Staff, the White Mage can boost the OHoly spell, you will always be better off sticking White magic on a Black Mage or Summoner. There is a small window during which Titan is your most powerful spell; since a White Mage can equip ArmorGaia Gear, this class can boost as well as any other.

Job Ability Summary

!White is quite potent, and thus the White Mage is redeemed. Buffs are often trivial, but of the means to heal HP and status ailments is useful and raising the fallen even moreso. What can I say? You'll want a spot for !White when confronting bosses. At the end of the game, the single offensive White spell, OHoly, makes a grand appearance. The only two weapons to boost its power are a Staff and a Bell, thus making the Time Mage, Red Mage, Chemist, Oracle and Geomancer the best OHoly casters. Otherwise, !White just runs off Magic Power, so powerful mages make powerful White mages.

Transfer to Freelancer

Nothing, really. MP + 10% needs to be set and is inferior to the similar MP+ 30% anyway. The only stat it really raises is Magic Power, at which it is not very adept compared to other Mages. !White 6 is awesome to be able to set to Freelancers and Mimes, though.
