So your 1 key hasn’t worn out yet and you’re back to being a “Robot Sympathizer” which isn’t too popular with the Eorzeans! Thankfully, MCH got some pretty beefy buffs – so GL getting your 3.2 MCH BiS! Thanks to Tiffany Faye for the help!
Quicknotes: Of course, is very similar to BRD BiS. The most glaring difference I can tell you is that SS is absolutely garbage for MCH.

only making short discussions to update all BiS quickly
640 SS? What gives, man!? Well, SS is locked in 3 key pieces of gear
- 100+ from 245 Weapon (Silly not to use this)
- 100+ from Legs (Other legs are ACC DET and no crit…)
- 50+ from Ring (Un-upgraded ring is OK, but lose too much ACC!)
So with that, we’re stuck. You may not like it, but we HAVE NO CHOICE.
Why not use Midan Body? It has CRIT! Well, there’s this other stat that’s slightly more important that Crit sometimes – it’s called ACCURACY. The 50~ Crit lost from body more than makes up for the tons of accuracy WE ACTUALLY NEED. It’s just a 50~ point loss, shh bby is ok.
Frontal Accuracy? This set is 20 points away from Frontal ACC cap. If you find yourself needing it, simply replace 1 (2 max) DET melds for ACC.
Technically, you can swap the body and legs, as both of those slots have mirrored stats. This BiS just assumes everyone will get the legs sooner than the body. Just tossin’ that out there… meaning:
- Choosing Midan Body + Midan Legs (saves lore)
- Choosing Lore Body + Lore Legs (Earlier BiS power spike to beat A7/8)
If your MCH is an alt you may consider the Midan option.
It is as of yet confirmed if Piety increases your worship levels and boosts proc chance. If that’s the case you can check WHM… (This is a joke, k).
The below spending strategy is purely to obtain BiS fastest:
- Weapon: Not bad so why not? You’ll have to buy this at some point, man.
- Body: By order of Midan counterpart…
- Legs: By order of Midan counterpart…
- Hands: This before boots since the stats are way better.
- Boots: Yep… “That’s a lot of Lore, MAN!!!!”
- Ring > Wrist > Earring in that order of value.
ANYTHING ELSE IS OPTIONAL: left-side fillers should be prioritized (Head > Belt), then accessories Neck > Ring(Unupgraded).

I’ll be updating this in the second pass just so I can finish more BiS pages asap. 90% of the info you’ll need is already here, though.
As the robots rise and fall – so does your proc chance!!! GL with yer’ Machinist for BiS in 3.2!
