Black Mage 4 Life. There's a reason I main it in FFXIV.

Red Mage be stylin' all over every other class in the series, let alone just its fellow mages.

It can kick ass with weapons but whip out magic when needed. Also it isn't made of tissue paper like other mages.

I went with black mage. Although blue mages are lots of fun, and white mages are very crucial. I just like the good ol' straightforward offensive spells of black mages.

White. One simple reason: The Cure spells.

I was going to pick Summon at first, but deep into the game when the fights get harder, I keep Cure, Cura, and Curaga on mega-use to keep my juices flowin'.

Time Mage, I love Haste.

I usually say Blue or Black, but I'm not sure right now.

I wish I could have had the chance to play XIV. The only time I got to play it was when y'all gave away keys for the Beta.

Red Mage, no question. It may not be as strong as other classes, but at least it do something besides waste MP or guard every turn.

Even better if it can be paired with a secondary class like Time or Summon. Let's not forget Doublecast, one of my favorite loopholes in FFTA. "Oh, there's a law against summon magic? LET'S JUST MAKE THAT TWO."

Red Mage be stylin' all over the other classes, too.

Black. Once you go black you appreciate their damage output and cute hats

Summoner, because flashy summons.

It's got to be the White Mage. I love those cute outfits they wear.

I hate having to choose between Time Mage and Red Mage. Red Mage is more stylin but god damn Time Mage with those fancy time spells............

They don't get along with black mages for some reason.

I'd have to go with Red mage. While I adore the power of a black mage, and the necessity of a white mage, I'd have to go with versatility and utility over specialization

Red Mages are badass but Blue Mages are my favorite mechanically, even if the games in which they're actually useful over a more standard caster is rather rare.

Also, more Green Magic please!

Depends. In most cases, its Black Mages all the way, but for FFV, I gotta go with Time Mages. Never had the patience for Blue Magic, personally.

Blue is the best. They are as good as or better at physicality attacks as Red Mage and have access to healing, attack, and support spells in addition to several unique spells. Their magic power is not as great as some of the other mage classes but if you have an overpowered spell like Frog Drop then who needs magic power? Also, collecting their spells is really unique and fun.

The Crimson Magician all the way, baby.

They should release a title called Final Fantasy Mages. No Warriors, Thieves, Monks, Beastmasters, Gunners, Alchemists, Samurai, Berserkers, Mimes/Mascots/Dancers/Bards, etc.
Just magic users: all the mages/sages (Red, White, Blue, Black, Green, Time), as well as any other potential magic user (Summoners, Geomancers, Gun-Mages, maybe even Psychics, Paladins, Dark Knights, and Ninja)
