    Hello, all. In honor of the upcoming fest in FFRK and in honor of Aerith's upcoming release in FFOO, I've decided to hold a white mage contest in FFRK's forums! The winner of the contest will receive enough gems for one 11x pull for the fest.

    Disclaimer
    Please note that this contest, while being held on FFRK Forums, is being held by me. It is not "officially" supported by the FFRK Forums. FFRK Forums will not be held responsible if you do not receive gems.

    Rules
    The rules for the fest will be complicated, so pay attention. Regardless of how well you do during this competition, understand that you will only have a chance to receive the gems. Here are the rules!

    Objective
    You must defeat the Shadow Dragon in the magicite dungeon with a team of select White Mage characters. Proof must be captured in screenshots or an uploaded Youtube video, at my discretion.

    Deadline
    You are required to submit proof (via screenshot or Youtube Video) of your White Mage team before the first upcoming Summer Fest banner.

    Tickets and Points
    Depending on your team composition, your chosen abilities, your soul breaks, and your completion time, you will acquire a certain number of points. Every 10 points results in 1 ticket. After all tickets are officially accounted for, they will be folded and placed into a basket. A ticket will be randomly drawn from the basket, and the winner will receive enough gems for an 11x pull via an iTunes card or a Google Play card. You can use the gems to pull on a fest banner or any banner you please during the fest!

    Requirements!
    1) You must post one youtube video or several snapshots to this thread of:
    a) a screenshot/youtube video of your party setup, showing your abilities and your soul breaks
    b) a screenshot of your party the moment you defeat the Shadow Dragon, while it's disappearing

    2) You may only submit one youtube video or one set of screenshots to this thread! You may not have multiple attempts to submit. In addition, private snapshots or youtube video submissions sent to my personal box will not be accepted.

    3) You may only use a certain characters provided in a list. Using any characters not found on the list will disqualify you for the competition.

    4) You may only use a maximum of two "low-tier" characters (provided in the list of characters). The rest must be "high-tier" characters. (Some characters are not white mages, but provide MND support; most of these characters are found in the second category).

    5) Black Magic and Darkness abilities are not allowed. You may only use the attack button, White Magic, Summon Magic, Support skills, Bard skills, Dancer skills, and Holy-elemental Knight skills. Lifesiphon is allowed for combat users.

    Mission: Defeat the Shadow Dragon Magicite with a White Mage Team!
    Your mission is to defeat the Shadow Dragon Magicite with a White Magic team! Here are the characters you can use!

    Good luck, everyone!

    As an addendum, please make sure that you post proof of your soul breaks being used. Soul breaks cannot be seen in the regular menu, so please be sure to show a screenshot of your soul break categories or show use of your soul break in your youtube video.

    Clarification needed. What abilities can some of the other non white mages use? Like Onion Knight. Can he use support abilities or is that limited to Red XIII? Why is Echo nowhere on the list? She can use all white mage abilities.

    The characters you can use on the list were selected for a variety of reasons.

    Echo can only use 4* White Magic. Thus, she is not permitted.

    All White Magic, Summoner, Bard, Dancer, and Support abilities are permitted.

    The only Combat ability allowed is Lifesiphon.

    Black magic and Darkness abilities are forbidden (for obvious reasons).

    Holy elemental Knight abilities are permitted.

    Onion Knight may use White Magic and all Support abilities, but Black Magic is forbidden. Thus, he is not allowed to use any black magic or his BSB commands.

    My mistake on Echo, thought she could use all White Magic. Thanks for the clarification on the support abilities. It makes this easier not having to use Red XIII.

    Khomatos, you've met the requirements and you have 55 points. That means you have 5 tickets! Good luck later in the drawing!

    A very creative team. Nice job.

    Garnet nowhere to be seen on the list, but Alphi in high tier? Clarification on this choice needed.

    Also absence of Curilla and Pecil is questionable as well.

    Garnet and Hope are both summoners, this is true. However, their abilities are primarily magic-based and not mind-based. In addition, they both lack 5* WHM access.

    While summons are good, the goal is to put offensive white magic abilities at the center stage as much as possible. If I were to put them at the "high-tier" list, then they would be mostly summon-focused and magic focused, detracting from the MND meta and the white magic aspect.

    Alphinaud is permitted because he has 5* WHM access. He can use both Madeen and Holy.

    Beatrix is permitted because she has 5* WHM access. Her Holy-based Knight abilities grant imperil-holy, effectively letting her function as a support.

    Warrior of Light is permitted because of Holy chain.

    It seems arbitrary, but there is a point to it all. If you're interested in a shot at free gems, try to meet the requirements and do your best.

    My submission. No need to consider me for the contest, just wanna try it out myself. :)

    Didn’t record a video as it was meant to be a trial run. Was actually going to quite when two of my DPS went down. But continued to see how far I could go. A triple cast Holy from Minwu was enough to bring me over the line in the end.

    @Moridraug, here are the reasons for not allowing Pecil and Curilla:

    1) Neither Pecil nor Curilla have access to 5* WHM. They also do not have soul breaks that provide a MND boost to the party (this is one of the qualities that I looked for among the supporting characters, like Mog and Red XIII). They likely do have imperil holy access, but because they don't have 5* WHM, I chose to not allow them.

    2) Beatrix has access to 5* WHM. That gave her automatic consideration. She can technically run abilities like De'Dia or Holy, provided she has very strong MND relics (among swords/knives). In addition, her Holy Knight skills can grant imperil holy, so she can either function as DPS, a healer, or uniquely an imperil support. That's why I allowed her.

    3) Although Warrior of Light does not have access to 5* WHM, he has the only holy chain soul break in the game. His chain soul break is the only Holy chain in the game; in addition, it heals the party. Thus, I've allowed him.

    Just a heads up, Beatrix cannot imperil Holy with her Knight abilities, just her bsb1. You might be thinking of Agrias who can imperil Holy with Knight abilities if she's been legend dived.

    @Micleon, you've received 58 points, which means you'll get 5 tickets. Good job on your setup.

    @Luxord, you've received 56 points, which means you'll get 5 tickets as well. Nice job bringing that team together, and with only a few hones.

    @diszlexia, you've received 53 points, which means you'll get 5 tickets as well. Nice strategy with using Siren to recast protectga and using Yuna USB/Curaise to keep the party alive.
