    Jesus, I didn't even notice the materia at first glance. Someone get the Random Fail XIV thread going.

    The guy's name looked familiar from retarded posts on the OF back in 1.0, so I was curious what he was wearing. I got a good laugh out of it, so I thought I'd share. Yes, that is what I do. I could have gone a step further and laughed at the fact that he did a ton of melds on gear that isn't the best (NQ AF/Militia, and not even the best belt), but I didn't.

    Also, it's a comical way of warning to people that they need to watch out that they're not wearing CP/GP on the wrong classes.

    I considered making a Gimp Player thread like the one for XI, but it's a lot harder to screw up gearing in XIV, so I didn't figure it would see much use, so I threw it in here instead.

    I'd hardly call them a moron, just recommend they get their glasses Rx checked.

    I've had to do double takes on CP/GP stuff plenty of times, it's not like C and G aren't extremely similar letters.

    Also ripping on them for not having the best/HQ gear when most crafters are still sorting out what is and isn't worthwhile (on top of simply learning the new system) is pretty lolworthy. The game's been in a barely playable state for a week, I don't think decking out your DoH was at the very top of most people's priority lists.

    Not gonna' lie, I just realized yesterday that my 46 BTN was wearing Serpent Sergeant's Sarouel instead of Serpent Private's Slops for a few whole levels.

    While we're talking about gathering gear (kind of), have materia caps been established like they have been for crafting gear?

  9. #89

    As much as I hate the fact that I'm gonna wind up NPCing all of the level 48 HQ tools, getting my hands on the faux-luminaries has been a very satisfying experience.

    Fuck the BSM 50 quest tho for making me waste a savage might. Assholes.

    I'm a little bit salty that my luminary tools are just trophies now... not to mention pretty lame looking in comparison to these new models and do not have the upgraded crafting table.

    Was it their intention to turn achievement rewards into just that? The achievement GC gathering rings and crafting earrings are the only things I can think of that don't have equivalents... which is assuming you can't outdo those with melded Raptorskin Rings or Red Coral Earrings.

    You can outdo them pretty easily, which made me super sad. I really like the look of the GC achievement crafting earrings. I wish they'd let you meld onto them.

    I have a list at home, though it's lacking in a few spots because I spent most of my cracked materia on DoH gear. I'd really rather post that info into a DoL thread though. I'll cook one up if I remember to.

    I think achievement gear being BiS was stupid to begin.

    I think Paragon's Crown and Maat's Cap were appropriate inventory-consolidating rewards for people who had leveled multiple jobs.

    Eh, I didn't think they were so bad. What's an achievement other than a universal and often long-term quest?

    Obviously, the specific achievements in question are pretty terrible, encouraging botting and/or spamming monotonous crap... but they pretty much just turned them into "do this a lot and get -1 inventory!"

    For example, checking off every single recipe in your crafting log should be a long-term goal that rewards you with something that's not simply a boring, re-skinned equivalent of something you already have that, itself, already looks cool/unique.

    Personally, I think the Luminary tools should have gotten the special crafting tables, while the quest rewards should have been the purely practical here-are-your-stats reward. The Luminary tools are just inventory-1 now.

    You wouldn't know that though because you've demonstrably never picked up a book nor educated yourself on the matter. Let me guess, overweight housewife?

    ...and now, what I came here for! I haven't seen anyone mention materia stat caps for the best HQ crafting gear, so I'll get that discussion started! The following is a list of information I have for stat caps on the best DoH gear. I only tested with LTW and WVR, but it seems that all DoH AF caps at the same values, so this should be applicable to everyone. I do not have GSM to 50 yet, so hopefully someone can help me fill in the info for all the accessory slots! I will update this post if someone provides info that I don't have.

    Mainhand: Can't meld the best Lv50 mainhand tool. Go do your class quests, you lazy sod!

    Offhand (HQ Militia): 19 Craftsmanship; 7+ Control; 3 CP

    Head (HQ AF): 4 Craftsmanship; 5 Control; 0 CP
    - Optimum meld: Control IV, Craftsmanship II, Control I

    Body (HQ AF): 16 Craftsmanship; 5 Control; 0 CP

    Hands (HQ AF): 4 Craftsmanship; 5 Control; 0 CP
    - Optimum meld: Control IV, Craftsmanship II, Control I

    Legs (HQ AF): 1 Craftsmanship; 5 Control; 3 CP
    - Optimum meld: Control IV, CP III, Control I, Craftsmanship I

    Feet (HQ AF): 1 Craftsmanship; 5 Control; 3 CP
    - Optimum meld: Control IV, CP III, Control I, Craftsmanship I

    Waist (HQ Raptorskin Mrch. Purse): 3 Craftsmanship; 5 Control; 3 CP
    - Note: Since this is not lv50, it doesn't accept tier4 materia.
    - Optimum meld: Control III, CP III, Control II, Craftsmanship I

    Neck (HQ Electrum Choker): 3 Craftsmanship; 3 Control; 5 CP
    - Note: Since this is not lv50, it doesn't accept tier4 materia.

    Ears (HQ Red Coral Earrings): 3 Craftsmanship; 3 Control; 6+ CP
    - Note: Since this is not lv50, it doesn't accept tier4 materia.
    - Alternative gear: Achievement award for doing 5000 supply quests for your GC (CP+32 Spiritbond+1, unmeldable)

    Wrists (HQ Militia): 4 Craftsmanship; 4 Control; 6 CP

    Rings (HQ Aetheryte Ring): 4 Craftsmanship; 4 Control; 3 CP


    Remaining Unknowns:
    • HQ Militia Offhand Control cap
    • HQ Red Coral Earrings CP cap
    I am putting this in the op. Why? because I am an admin so fuck you that's why.

    (also, because I keep having to scroll down to find this, and people in my FC ask about this stuff)

    If you want, I can just put the spreadsheet with all the slot caps (and optimal melds) in the OP.

    I thought I've seen spreadsheets showing Waste Not being the most efficient durability restorer. Did that change in a recent patch to make Manipulation better?
