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.
