NIN BiS Discussion

The BiS is quite intuitive this time around and it basically builds itself. Nearly every piece with crit is used with the exception of Midan Body.

Midan Body isn’t too big of a loss since we actually need the accuracy from its counterpart. Midan Body also has SS so the 88 Crit (while sorely missed) is something we just cannot afford to dip our greedy hands into.

Even with the Mudra Changes, SS is still pretty bad. It’s main function is a garbage stat that you’re forced upon cause you have no choice in gear selection.

The Augmented Torrent Kris is an amazing “filler”. Not all classes can say their lore weapon stands up as a near equal to the Midan Counterpart but Ninjas have that luxury. Besides, not everyone will be able to clear A8S asap.

There’s not much else to say here. Unupgraded Ring may provide less than 0.3% DPS increase but is overall a bit of a hassle, and has problems scaling into greater content (so adjusting your gear to this may not be the best idea IE more ACC Melds)

The below spending strategy is purely to obtain BiS fastest:

  • Weapon: Amazing stats, worth every tome as a “filler”.
  • Body: Since Midan is A8
  • Legs: Since Midan is A7
  • Helm: Rounds out left-side BiS
  • Wrist > Ring > Earring by order of value stats.

ANYTHING ELSE IS OPTIONAL: left-side fillers first Gloves > Boots, then accessories Neck > Ring(Unupgraded).

MNK BiS Discussion

Like many of the 3.2 sets, the advent of melding has made it possible that a bunch of setups can reach very similar stats. But first of all – let’s talk about Skill Speed.

Skill Speed or DET? Okay so we all know Crit is best for us, and as such the set has over 1000 of it. So where do we want our stats into next?

I don’t believe the hard and fast numbers of stat weights. The popular belief is that DET beats SS. This however does not take SCALING into account. But does it even matter? When we are almost FORCED to have 600++ SS to get anywhere NEAR BiS stats!

So as a concession to many many configurations and discussions with others, I have arrived at the set above to be a “balanced” set regardless of your thoughts. It has a really high Crit rating and SS rating which BOTH SCALE well, and still has a little det since we can’t go TOO crazy with SS. Why?

I could have melded more SS in place of DET melds (something you can do if you like) but TP will start to become a real issue at those levels of SS. Unless you have a NIN or your comp uses Paeon – do it at your own risk.

I have made multiple sets wherein I get a higher DET rating and lower SS rating, but I truly feel that since we are already forced to have a rather high SS – I’d rather embrace that than lose CRIT just to reduce SS and gain DET. Again, stat weights cannot take scaling into account.

Regardless though, the difference between these two “more Det less SS” setups is seriously marginal. Any set within the “BiS range” of stats will perform within the 95+ percentile of each other.

  • Weapon: An excellent “filler” weapon – any serious Monk who wants to clear A8 should invest in this. The stats are GREAT.
  • Helm: has slightly better stats than boots (ACC / CRIT)
  • Boots: It’s the last left-side lore BiS…
  • BODY is a NOTABLE FILLER: You can pick it up now…
  • Ring > Earring > Wrist by order of “value”.

DRG BiS Discussion

Let me first preface this discussion by saying theres more than one way to arrive at a set that has nearly the same stats. And a whole lot of other
ways to make sets that are about 95%+ efficiency as this BiS.

Accuracy? It’s got 99.8++ frontal accuracy for A86 which should be more than enough. This should be enough! If you’re foreseeing problems, go ahead and change one of the ring melds to acc.

621 Skillspeed? It’s 5 points above the practical softcap of 616 (and the absolute minimum for DRG which is 590). As far as I know DRG’s should not go much higher than 616 – it may even be detrimental to the rotation. If you wan’t to go for 590+ (depending on your latency and experience) you can drop the single SS meld above and meld a DPS stat.

The LORE WEAPON and LORE BODY both have SS, and both are good fillers anyway. Lore Body large amounts of accuracy, So DO NOT HESITATE to pick that up even if it’s not BiS!

Melding? Can be a pain since it’s one of those sets that need accuracy melded on. Stick to cheapmelding IV’s (DPS stats or ACC) if you’re far from your BiS, and switch to accuracy V slowly. (The lore body helps out with this)

Lore Body BiS? Is very possible. Just change the melds and switch body piece THATS IT. The only downside is a little overcapped with SS, and lower DET (Not too painful). The upside? Much more flexibility with melds. It’s not BiS but can serve as a temporary solid set. This is the route you wanna take if you have no money for ACC V, lol.

Aside from this, the set works out quite well with over 1k crit and a safe level of SS (616+), and the rest being the “worst”, non-scalable stat, DET
which we can’t really avoid. Overall, quite a good BiS yet again for DRG!

  • Weapon: Still worth even if its not BiS. Go further down the list if you haven’t gotten your hypercharged tome yet.
  • Legs: By order of Midan appearance. (A7)
  • Helm: Likewise (A6)
  • Glove: Since helm is a more stable choice, this is last.
  • BODY (You’ll get this either now, or after accessories).
  • Ring > Earring > Bracelet. By order of stability.

Quicknotes: Of course, is very similar to MCH BiS. 3/29/16 I UPDATED THE BiS! I wrote this one quite early, and underestimated Skill Speed on BRD. I was stuck in the Gordias mindset and if given the choice choose DET over SS with a small stat weight difference. MORE ON THIS IN THE NOTES SECTION. The list below reflect the better stat weights of SS and actually being able to USE it. The change from the original list I posted is TWO items (chest) and 2-4 melds.

BRD BiS Discussion

Bard best-in-slot ain’t so bad this time around. This set features the ‘PRACTICAL’ absolute maximum critical hit chance a Bard can attain without gimping themselves.

— UPDATED BiS NOTES —

My original BiS list favored DET over SS even if SS had a tiny tiny edge over DET in terms of stat weight, due to reasons no longer valid in 3.2.

Skill Speed is actually pretty good these days! Why the change of heart? Well, the main reasons are its TP, Stat weightCast time and Scaling.

Lesser TP costs and encounter uptimes in 3.2 – TP isn’t really an issue these days. so that’s a tiny nod for SS.

Stat Weight? Even on its own, SS beats out DET by a tiny tiny margin.

Cast Time is a “non-tangible” bonus that you can move out of AoE faster, and may be able to get your skill off safely as compared to DET in some niche cases, providing a practical DPS boost that isn’t seen on the sheet.

Scaling? Det scales poorly, while SS scales better the more you have of it (but not quite as good as CRIT still). So in effect, if you’re gonna dump your other stats that “aren’t crit” into one pile – it’s better off in SS.

Do we really have to buy lore weapon? Yes, it’s a bitter pill to swallow but yes you do. The Sephirot Bows stats aren’t exactly magical… delay the weapon no later than after left-side purchases.

PLD BiS Discussion

Why STRENGTH melded in accessories? While VIT beats out STR in value, STR beats the secondary DPS stats (Crit, DET, SS…). So while yes, tanking primary stat is undoubtedly VIT – it’s not like STR became WORTHLESS! Aside from Parry, we cannot meld any more defense on the right side…

THE ABOVE BiS IS MISSING 2 POINTS ACCURACY. It’s  99.9+% hit rate, but this can be bothersome. Ultimately, there are many ways to get that last 2 points –

  • Food: Steamed Stafff -> Baked Pipira Pira (Most brainless solution)
  • Materia: Change one DET meld into ACCURACY (Laziest solution)
  • Swap certain pieces of gear with an ACC one (more on this later on…)

Of the above, I’d recommend AGAINST gear swaps, as the food or materia change are the best (Personally I’d go the materia route).

Levequest Items Discussion?

Every tier has 3 kinds of Leves:

  • [1]Single Submit Leves: Levemete & submission are just a short walk from each other.
  • [C]ourier Leves: Levemete is from the [H]ometown, to be submitted to the [L]ocal Levemete.
  • [R]epeatable Leves.

Notes: [1]Single and [3]Repeatable Leves (1 each) are from the [H]ometown, and [L]ocal levemete. [C]ourier leves will always give the Highest EXP per craft, but require alot of time, and travel costs. [3]epeatable leves will always give the Highest EXP per Leve. If you value your leves alot or don’t have many left, these are good. But, they are thrice as expensive. We will recommend the best [1] and [3] levequest(s) for every tier. Note that this depends on server prices and might not apply to you (Unlikely). We will comment on every tiers [C] levequest but will likely never recommend it. Use [C] levequests at your own discretion! Also, a Precursor item means it requires a fully crafted item AS A MATERIAL.

Levequest Items Discussion?

Every tier has 3 kinds of Leves:

  • [1]Single Submit Leves: Levemete & submission are just a short walk from each other.
  • [C]ourier Leves: Levemete is from the [H]ometown, to be submitted to the [L]ocal Levemete.
  • [R]epeatable Leves.

Notes: [1]Single and [3]Repeatable Leves (1 each) are from the [H]ometown, and [L]ocal levemete. [C]ourier leves will always give the Highest EXP per craft, but require alot of time, and travel costs. [3]epeatable leves will always give the Highest EXP per Leve. If you value your leves alot or don’t have many left, these are good. But, they are thrice as expensive. We will recommend the best [1] and [3] levequest(s) for every tier. Note that this depends on server prices and might not apply to you (Unlikely). We will comment on every tiers [C] levequest but will likely never recommend it. Use [C] levequests at your own discretion! Also, a Precursor item means it requires a fully crafted item AS A MATERIAL.

Leatherworker Level 1-15: The early levels

We DO NOT advise using Regular Leves for these low levels. Using Courier / Reverse Courier is the most efficient use of leves in these tiers:

Level 1: Leather Duckbills / 3x Leather [The Bannock] Level 5: Leather Mitts / Fingerless Leather Gloves [The Bannock] Level 10: Hard Leather Caligae / Hard Leather Hunting Belt [Bentbranch Meadows]

All of the Courier quests start from Gridania.

If you want to use spammy single submits…

LTW 1 Leve Recommendation: [H][1] – Leather Choker [The Bannock]
LTW 5 Leve Recommendation: [H][1] – Leather Himantes [Gridania]
LTW 10 Leve Recommendation: [H][1] – Hard Leather Caligae [The Bannock]
