FFXIV 2.4 Summoner (SMN) Best in slot (BiS) Gear Guide
Have you noticed various Summoners crying in the corners of Eorzea? Garuda consoling them? Why? Cause your gear in 2.4 SUCKS! But on a serious note, here’s the BiS for Summoner… with some very important notes to read. For better or worse, if you’ve packed your side in with the pets – this is the best you got to work with.
The good news is you all the Dreadwyrm gear you need is found in lower turns. Summoner gear balancing hangs on a THREAD and access to all sorts of gear to mix and match is really important.
If you’re wonder what to buy as SMN with your Poetics tomes…
- Legs (a much needed accuracy boost)
- Bracelets (Dread drops in T12)(Use shiva as a filler)
- Gloves (t11)
- Chest: Make sure you have the Accuracy to cover this! (Check fillers)
- Ring (Forced buy)(T10)
- The rest is Optional!
- WEAPON is only good if you have the extra tomes AND the “Sands”
- Belt is a great filler piece.

2.4 SMN Crafted Gear Viability
As a general rule of thumb… ACCURACY, CRIT and DET are all good melds for SMN. Don’t even bother with SS. Heres some cost-effective melds.
Platinum Circlet of Casting – CRIT IV, CRIT IV, ACC III, any Crit follows.
Kirimu Gloves of Casting – ACC IV ACC IV, CRIT III, any Acc follows.
Kirimu Belt of Casting – ACC IV, any Acc or Det follows.
Kirimu Boots of Casting – CRIT IV, ACC III any Crit or Acc follows.
The rest simply aren’t worth discussion.
