    Questions and Hopefully Answers on Materia Melding

    I saw before that materia can get capped on an item if the ilvl of the item it is being melded to is not high enough. Does anyone know of a list of what caps out on what ilvl?

    It varies by piece, so no, you'll probably never have a list of all caps for everything on every piece of gear. Your best bet is to get a piece of materia, and check the meld window to see if it gets capped or not.

    I believe (but have not kept up with if this is still the case) that the stats on the HQ version of an item are the maxed stats for the attributes on it. Arbitrary example

    Robe of Whatever: INT+8, MND+8, PIE+8
    HQ Robe of Whatever: INT+10, MND+10, PIE+10

    For NQ robe you could add +2 INT/MND/PIE and any more would be capped. For HQ you wouldn't be able to add any so you'd want something else like Determination, VIT, Spell speed etc.

    If you have the ability to meld yourself, just check if the + granted by the materia goes red.

    That doesn't hold true for all items. An example would be HQ red coral earrings, which only provide +cp before melding, but you can meld a good bit extra +cp.

    Try ffxiv (dot) ariyala (dot) com - it's a ffxiv gear calculator. Every piece of gear I've tried it with has shown me the correct melding limits. It's a very handy web site.

    (I'm still in the ten posts before I can point to anywhere... So I had to play games with the web site name... (Sigh))
