4.3 DoH Spiritbonding
Jun 3rd, 2018
- FFXIV DoH Spiritbonding
- **Note that as of Patch 4.4 scrip prices for materia have been significantly reduced. Check your market to make sure spiritbonding is still worth your time and effort.**
- Spiritbonding is one of two consistent ways to obtain tier V and VI crafting materia. As of Patch 4.3 with changes to quick synthesis, it's also a good way to craft intermediate materials for yellow scrips. Gathering will not be covered -- the cost of gathering materia generally makes it not worth your time.
- How do I spiritbond?
- Spiritbond percentage increases with each craft within a certain level range of your gear. Melding materia, wearing HQ gear, and certain food and buffs will increase this rate.
- What gear should I wear?
- As of 4.3 you can use Quick Synthesis at a 100% success rate wearing the recommended spiritbond set. This includes:
- - Vendor purchased i290 hat, chest, gloves, legs, and boots
- - HQ crafted i290 main hand, off hand, belt, and accessories
- - Cunning IV Materia in all guaranteed meld slots (can be purchased for 25 red scrip each; 18 for a full set)
- What should I craft?
- Level 68 intermediates are the recommended craft due to their usefulness and low number of ingredients. Check your server's crystal prices if you need help deciding. These include:
- - Molybdenum Ingots (BSM, ARM)
- - Zelkova Lumber (CRP)
- - Twinthread -> Twinsilk (WVR)
- - Palladium Nuggets (GSM)
- Gazelle Leather is not recommended. Also, consider sending DoL retainers out to passively gather the materials needed.
- How much do I need to craft?
- This depends on your buffs. It's recommended to at least have HQ Potent Spiritbond Potion and Squadron Spiritbond Manual/That Which Binds Us III (FC Action) buffs for +8. A +8 buff will finish in 178 crafts. Adding Better Crowned Pie (+2, +10 total) lowers to 169 crafts. Pieces may occasionally finish bonding +/- 1 craft from expected. Make sure you repair after the first 99 Quick Synthesis set!
- After your gear is fully bonded, remove the materia and convert. i290 pieces guarantee at least tier V materia, with a chance for tier VI.
