Viera White Mage.

White mages use curing magicks to mend allies' wounds and restore them to health.

A master of curative magic, the White Mage is a job in Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift available to humes, nu mou and viera right from the beginning.

White Mages have abilities such as Cure to heal party members and damage the undead; and Raise, which revives a KO'd unit and damages undead. They have low HP, but a good way to combat this is to acquire their skills while alternating with another job, such as Beastmaster, though this would lower their Magick stat. A better idea may be changing their job class to another and using the White Magick skillset as a secondary A-Ability, since the White Mage's magick growth is only average, meaning one may wish to change jobs to one better suited for growth in that area.

The White Mage's reviving spells, Raise and Arise, may be used to move a KO'd unit to a tile that is otherwise unreachable. This is useful in maps where treasure is on a ledge and none of the units have a sufficient Jump stat to reach it. Refresh is one of the few ways of getting rid of Doom and some status reducing effects.

The White Mage's Turbo MP ability is less useful than in the first game, because now all units start with zero MP; Turbo MP effectively doubles the amount of time a unit has to wait before they can cast their spells, unless one uses an Ether, the Seer's Recharge ability (for humes) or the Cannoneer's Ether Shot ability. Since this will double the cost for Esuna, Refresh and Reraise, its counterpart, Halve MP, is more beneficial.

Some notable White Mages are Cyda, Mack Ocktor, White King Blanc of Clan Cinquleur, and the hume to whom the player donates gil, who is a member of Carm Mercantile (secretly known as Khamja's front). They represent the three races the White Mage belongs to.
