I've been back about 3 months now, and in that time I've taken my old character who had one job above 30 to WHM68, SCH72 and RDM50 (well I'm happy about that, that's still probably quite slow in the grand scheme of things these days!)
On White Mage though, I'm getting close to dinging 70, and that 1M+ price tag of Raise III is worrying me. I'm the kind of person who likes to have a full assortment of spells and gear (I took time off leveling in the mid 50s to quest my Recall scrolls, and have just finished my AF quests and bought myself a Noble's Tunic, which I equipped for the first time last night!) However, I don't have anywhere near 1 million gil at the moment, so if I want the spell, it's going to mean a week or two of not leveling (I can't play every night for multiple hours like some people here ^^), which is a fortnight I could be using to do new content (like try out Abyssea, which is why I'm leveling White Mage, or do more CoP storyline).
So my question is, how important is Raise III these days? Will I be considered a bad WHM for not having it, and should I actually stop leveling to go and get it, or keep going and purchase it when I've saved the gil?
