    Can confirm that, friend got some from converting militia gear into materia.

    Gear from instances doesn't seem convertible even if they do gain Spiritbond, only way to get high tier materia seems to be from crafted gear.

    I must have shit luck then. I've converted over 20+ ilvl55 crafting/DoW items and haven't seen a single IV.

    Haven't had a ton of time to play and haven't seen anyone ask/answer this - is there any use for lowbie equipment with melds on it, like the 1.0 turn-ins for hamlet and such. I've got like 90 cracked tier I and while I know the Tier I/II is still useful for filling in gaps on caps, just wondering if I should bother melding the low stuff I'm converting as I level, or just NPC the gear.

    If it's cracked that's already melded onto something, just go to the Calamity Salvager and turn it in for Tomestones. The only thing that's not worth turning into tomestones are things like Vanya, Gryphonskin, or any other iLvl70 crafted item. Everything else is so easy and cheap to make, it's easy to replace if you actually wanted the item.

    If it's cracked that's not melded onto something, just hang onto them and convert them at the Calamity Salvager as you need specific things. They'll all stack together now, so it doesn't take up much inventory.

    No, there's no alternative use like hamlet turn-ins.

    Tier IV are pretty rare to make in general and require ilvl55+ to make.

    Ironically, the person you said that to seemed to be more right than you are. You aren't doing content that is hard enough to spiritbond your ilvl 70 gear, that's why it isn't spiritbonding.

    In that case I guess I don't, I can only assume Coil is the only place ilvl 70 gear will SB then?

    As far as I know, that's correct. Crystal Tower probably will as well when it comes out.

    I'm also fairly certain this is true even for convertible gear, my Spruce Pattens didn't SB at all during probably 40ish AK runs, but after doing some WHM in BCoB they are now around 40%.

    And my BLM set probably only finished bonding due to me being BLM for our turn 4 progression. Now that we have up to turn 4 on farm, I don't think gear will SB very fast. You'd probably have to purposely fail turn 4 if you wanted to SB ilvl 70 things efficiently.

    Took me about 15 tries to get one. Just got a IV Craftsmanship yesterday. It just has a really shitty conversion rate.

    Maybe HQ gear has a higher chance in getting appropriate materia per tier? Kinda ridiculous to do though.

    So from the sounds of things, if you have a huge pile of Cracked Materia from 1.0 then your best bet is to sit on it for a while since supply isn't going to be great so price is likely to go up? I think I have 139 cracked materia atm (like a 50/50 split between T3 and T4)

    Don't wait too long though. If 2.1 rolls around and they change things because the T4 supply is astronomically low, you might regret it.

    That said, I didn't have enough to hang onto for selling, so I slapped all mine in DoH AF to have some pimp crafting gear (because FUCK spiritbonding DoH AF).

  15. #115

    The trick to getting crafting materia is to wear it on DoW and SB it that way.

    Militia wrists and Aetheryte rings (which conveniently increase SB) are the only pieces you can get a TIV from but it's still going to be infinitely faster, TIIIs are still plenty useful (from other slots).

    Someone can correct me if there's any other ilvl 55 crafting gear DoW can wear that I'm forgetting.

    Can you actually get crafting materia from Aetheryte Rings? Last screenshots anyone showed, they got Ice III. I do SB the Militia Wrists on... well, everything, but considering the chances of getting an actual T4, it's not going quickly.

  17. #117

    I assumed you could get elemental materia from pretty much anything, like a universal "you might just get crap" factor.

    I haven't converted them myself, I just assumed they would be considered "craft gear" when converting (like other gear) since they have craft stats on them.

    You can SB any crafting thing on DoW. I do AK runs in full electrum crafting accessories and my silly Gambler's crown.

    That's great if you don't want any T4s....
