Each job in FFXIV has tons of abilities. Some of these abilities can be activated repeatedly, whilst other abilities have a GCD (global cooldown). Players wanting to optimize their damage, tanking, or healing must ensure they are performing the right rotation of abilities. This ensures that your buffs remain active for as long as possible, and there is no downtime in dishing out DPS. 

White Mage is a healer Job that focuses on keeping the party topped up at max health. It is the healer's job to ensure that not only the entire party remains healthy at all times but to also keep the tank alive and well throughout a flurry of auto and tank-buster attacks. 

The White Mage is the most basic of all the healing classes, focusing primarily on keeping the party at full health at all times, as opposed to providing tons of buffs.

In order to know the best White Mage Rotation in FFXIV, we need to look at several different factors. These include openers, GCDs, buffs, and more. We will break down each step of the rotation below:

In FFXIV, every member of the party is required to deal DPS during moments of downtime. This includes healers who, if not actively healing a party member at that specific moment, are required to deal DPS to the raid boss as well

White Mages focus on restoring raw HP as opposed to buffing the party by providing shields. Because of this, they have access to stronger healing abilities and burst healing spells when compared to the other healing Jobs. 

Here is an example of a White Mage opener and rotation:

Best White Mage Rotation Order

  1. Tincture of Mind
  2. Glare III
  3. Dia
  4. Glare III
  5. Glare III
  6. Presence of Mind
  7. Glare III
  8. Assize
  9. Glare III

It should be noted that use of your healing spells should be used at the healer's discretion when party members fall below a certain health threshold. 

Depending on the type of encounter you are up against, this rotation may differ slightly. However, this is a very good rotation at maximizing your damage, and when in doubt, this can be used relatively everywhere.
