1) !White is one of the best abilities of the game.

2) White Mage as a job is horrible.

I was searching for two fire rods drops, at the Tower of Walze. I had a White Mage character hitting with his flail. Lame.

I have had too a knight without weapon and barehand ability (it hitted harder than with the mythril sword!!!).

Then I realized than the White Mage could hit harder with barehand too, and presto!

Now I have four white wizards karate fighters. XD

When the strategy won't work I'll change my characters to their normal jobs (except one who will continue with it) but so far they are killing ice soldiers in one turn (!!!).

Now I have level 2 and 3 white mages, and if I realized this strategy before, I would have lvl 4 white mages for sure.

A much better strategy than white wizards hitting with a flail, if you ask me. And is very fun, too.

Because of the White Mage's low Vitality and equipment options, they're not really suited for being in the Front Row, which is where Barehanded puts them. The most effective way to give them damage options is giving them !Black or !Summon.

This goes for White Mages, but also for other Jobs with poor damage options and frail bodies, such as Time Mages, Chemists, Bards, Thieves and Dancers.

Then again, if you're killing in one turn, Barehanded works plenty fine. Just know that Barehanded damage peters out compared to weapons later in the game.

Djibriel, I'm your fan!

I have taken this strategy until Karnak ship. And yes, even big guns can be killed in one turn. The graveyard ships zone is very fun with this strategy. You can kill undeads with your punches or healing them. Even this is a very good strategy to defeat Syren.

Inside karnak ship this strategy begins to be worst, and very very fast. But when you take again your "normal" jobs you have 4 characters with barehanded and lvl 3-4 white magic.

I remember defeating this dungeon with red mages and knights punching faces and a black mage with !white. (Only to train him. At this moment red mages are much better).

And I know, you only have lvl 1-2 magic, but you have not to train again white mage work until lvl 5 appears.
