So are white mages the only healing class?

I really want to be a healer, but I really don't want to be the over used class. I rather be the underdog...

White Mages aren't a class, they're a job.

Scholars will be healers also.

Scholar is supposed to focus on healing as well.

Healers were still the most in-demand in the beta.

But SCH can heal, which is one of the jobs ACN turns into at 30.

whitemage will never be an over used job, healers will always be in demand.

in 1.0 the job that most people have at 50 is WHM but it is not the job people play the most
it's always in demand but you really need to like to be a healer to keep it as your main
So if you plan to make WHM your main, then go for it ;)

There will be two healing classes: conjurer and arcanist.

Yoshi-P stated the implementation of arcanist will fill the missing healer for Limsa Lominsa. That confirms everything.

Google Yoshi arcanist healer limsa if u dont believe it

No, they just heal differently. Arcanist is about "over time" spells so heal over time. Scholar will be just as good as WHM at healing.
