Red Mage Magical Ranged DPS

On the eastern edge of Abalathia's Spine lies the mountainous region of Gyr Abania.

It is in these elevated lands that people took shelter, when a burning star guided them away from the Sixth Umbral Calamity's treacherous floodwaters. The survivors gathered from near and far, and amongst them were refugees of the sorcerous cities of Mhach and Amdapor.

These sworn enemies buried their history for the sake of the future, and cast aside their vestments of black and white. Upon the remnants of their arts a new discipline was built, and the first red mages stepped forward with rapiers in hand to fight back against the rising tides of destruction.

You can obtain the two types of mana by using certain spells. Once enough of each has been acquired, Riposte will become Enchanted Riposte, Zwerchhau will become Enchanted Zwerchhau, and Redoublement will become Enchanted Redoublement.
Certain actions and effects will also be strengthened.

If the gap between Black and White Mana accumulation grows too large, the crystal at the top of the gauge will change color, and it will become more difficult to accumulate the lesser of the two.

Upon learning the trait Mana Stack, the Mana Stack Gauge will be displayed.
Maximum stacks of mana can be accumulated using Enchanted Riposte, Enchanted Zwerchhau, Enchanted Redoublement, and Enchanted Moulinet, then used to execute certain actions such as Verflare and Verholy (acquired at level 70).
