—Mastery certificate description
The White Mage(白魔道士, Shiromadoushi?) is a job class in Final Fantasy III. It is gained from the Wind Crystal. In the opening FMV of the 3D remake, Refia is depicted as a White Mage. 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.
Like every other Final Fantasy, the White Mage specializes in healing and status enhancement spells, but it can also cast the offensive wind spell. Once the Devout (Shaman) job is unlocked, this job loses its usefulness.
The White Mage's battle sprite from the Famicom version is nearly identical to the one from the original Final Fantasy, but with its face turned slightly toward the screen and arms spaced slightly farther apart.
