    How to spiritbond low level gear efficiently? (Tier I materia)

    I know it sounded dumb to ask, but I can't find an effective answer. I want lots of materia for ARR relics.

    My thought was to throw on level 10~ HQ gear and then run a dungeon roughly 10-15 levels above the gear, but is that efficient? I was wondering what's the best way to go around it or how anyone does it here these days.

    My notes say the efficient level is 10 above your gear.

    and

    T1 - 1-14 / 15-29 < (I do not remember why my notes made this distinction, but it's there)
    T2 - 30-44
    T3 - 45-??
    T4 - i180
    T5 - i185+

    HQ gear will add 10% to the rate. Melding materia to it will also add to the rate but considering you're aiming for low tier materia that won't work. Its +10% per guarenteed slot, +5% per overmeld.

    Would unsynced dungeons work for this activity? Thanks for that chart.

    Or would I need to go in the wild for this?

    Unsynced works, but for T1 you really only need to do it in the field. It isn't until you need to grind spiritbond for L39+ gear that things get funky (because in 2.x, you generally only saw L49 mobs in abundance, there might be some L50s but I don't remember.)

    I have NO idea how L41-49 or ilvl gear would interact with HW (besides mobs probably kicking your ass). People basically didn't bother to spiritbond combat gear at that point, so there isn't a ton of info.
