A Note From the Kitty
To all ye receiving these gifts I bid you welcome. Greeting and salutations fellow player of Final Fantasy XI, greeting adventurers of all levels. I welcome you to the most in-depth guide guide to White Mage you'll find anywhere. Everything you'll need and want to know you can find here, everything. This shall be the definitive guide to White Mage.
I've been playing Final Fantasy XI since 2005 and have spent almost the entire time as Paladin. Paladin and White Mage share more in common than you might know. I've learned from players that have been playing the game since the beginning. As a result of all the learning and on the job experience I've learned to read the tide of battle in most any situation. For those of you who are experienced you know what I speak of, but for the rest of you I've written this guide book for you. As for being a lady White Mage, it came with the territory.
This guide book is written in a manner that anyone should be able to understand. If for any reason you don't understand something I encourage you to seek me out and ask.
