White Mage Spell Speed vs Determination?
I personally run a mix of both. It’s really not a big deal wether you want to stack one or the other. I will not state one is better than the other, it boils down to your team dymanic and your own playstyle. Focus on getting full i90 while AVOIDING CRIT, then you can stack either SS or DET when “fine tuning” your gear. Of course, you may never see your dream set due to coil drops RNG. I listed Myth gear on the leftmost since it’s a “Sure Drop”
In the end, all this theorycrafting is moot. If you can clear the hardest PvE content with your current setup – who cares!? I’ve done it with a half SS half DET build, and I’m quite confident if i went full SS or full det it wouldn’t matter.
Where to spend Tomes of Mythology as White Mage?
DO NOT SPEND MYTH ON ACCESSORIES / BELT unless you’re super desperate. Back when Primal Extreme / Ultima didn’t exist, this was okay – but now, don’t even think about it.
White Mage Mythology purchase order should be something like:
- Legs (Since Allagan legs have crit, and it drops in T5)
- Gloves (Allagan gloves have crit)
- Chest (Allagan chest is T4)
- Boots (Allagan boots is T2)
- Thyrus Zenith can be upgraded “last” if you don’t mind using the “free” Omnirod.
The rest is all optional – accessories / belts.
White Mage Full Determination Gear:
Myth: Boots, Legs,
Allagan: Head, Chest,
Accessories: Allagan Earrings, Inferno Wrist, Allagan Ring, Vortex Ring.
There are no i90 Determination pieces for: Belt, Gloves, Choker. If you really want to sacrifice SS for DET, then your next best choices for these slots, Royal Sash and Vanya Gloves of Healing and Ultima Choker. (But using i90 Spell Speed gear is likely better)
White Mage Full Spell Speed Gear:
Myth: Head, Chest, Gloves.
Allagan: Belt, Boots.
Accessories: Allagan Choker, Tremor Earrings, Allagan Wrist, Vortex Ring.
There are no i90 Spell Speed pieces for: Legs, Ring 2. If you really want to sacrifice DET for SS, then your next best choices for these slots are Vanya Breeches of Healing and Ultima Ring. (But using i90 Determination gear is likely better)
This page will of course be updated as the game progresses and patches, and more gear will be introduced into the game.
