Job Appreciation: The Salve-Maker (4 Heroes of Light)
This has got to be one of my favorite jobs in the game. I don’t think I’ve used White Mage since I got this one, to be honest… I’m on the final battle and Jusqua’s still using it.
The salve-maker is inexpensive for your wallet and AP. You’ll probably find all the items you need in your normal dungeon travels without having to buy spells. Dispensary lets you use them repeatedly and lasts four turns, so if you keep track you’ll never run out. Using items is free unless you use Healthcare, which is still cheap. Curaga will always cost you 4 AP on a White Mage; you can use an X-Potion or an Elixir on everyone for just 2. Heck, you can basically groupcast Esuna+Cure when you have a remedy.
If you reach a lull in the fight, you can use Poison Pill, and that fixed damage is hella useful on high-eva high-def enemies. Level Serum is expensive at 4AP, but it’s a very nice buff.
Not to mention the classy as hell monocle.
