FFXIV Endwalker:  Sage Class Overview & Basic Tips

Since this class will start at level 70, you will have a basic understanding of the job from the very first moment. However, you should spend some time on Roulettes or other activities, and try to get comfortable with how the class develops in combat.

First and foremost, you must understand that Healers have two different approaches in strategy, depending on how their skills work. While White Mage and Astrologian are pure Healing classes, Scholar and Sage are Barrier Healers, more focused on preventing damage while retaining DPS capabilities instead of merely healing the damage done to the party.

As a Sage, you want to protect your allies while also preventing or mitigating the incoming damage, only healing when it’s strictly necessary. To do that, the most important skill you need to learn about is Kardia. Kardia applies the Kardion effect to yourself and the ally you’re targeting. This effect will heal both of you every time you use an offensive skill, like Dosis.

The main healing tools you will have from the start are Diagnosis and Prognosis, the first being a targeted healing move and the latter providing a healing AoE. Combining Eukrasia with any of the three main skills will give you access to Eukrasian versions of Dosis, now inflicting damage over time, and Diagnosis and Prognosis now providing barriers. On top of this, you will have access to a few regenerative techniques, like Pepsis or Physis.

Last but not least, another helpful Sage tool comes in the form of the Addersgall class trait and the skills related to it, Druochole, Kerachole, Ixochole, and Taurochole. These skills will provide more potent healing resources that will spend Addersgall stacks, and on later levels, you will also gain access to the Addersting trait.
