Hey guys, Anders here with my definitive Best in Slot gear and materia melding guide for patch 3.4. This time we’re going to be taking a look at Dragoon. As far as Accuracy requirements go, it seems multiple sources confirm that the frontal accuracy on this raid tier is not much higher than it was for A8 Savage and with that I’m estimating frontal Accuracy to be around 715. As always, if you have any questions don’t be afraid to ask, I’ll do my best to answer them. The BIS I suggest has a total weight of 3099.143 and focuses on Crit and Det. This set will give you over 25 thousand HP and a Crit of 886 and a Determination stat of 1031, which is unusually high, but unfortunately Dragoon gear isn’t amazing this tier so we have a lot of Det tacked on while we avoid having too much Skill Speed. Accuracy is at 718, which is around the area you need for frontal accuracy in A12S.
On to the melds and the set, for the weapon you’ll use the Alexandrian weapon melded with two Crit V materia. On the headpiece, you’ll want to use the Alex headpiece melded with two Det V materia. For the body you’ll want to use the Scripture body melded with two Crit V materia. For the hands you’ll use the Alex gauntlets melded with two Crit V materia. For the waist you have two options. The Alex belt melded with a single Crit V materia or the Scripture belt melded with a single Det V materia. Mathematically the Alex belt is better by less than one main stat, but it also has less Skill Speed. So if you’re aiming to hit the 600 Skill Speed mark you may want to go for the Scripture belt instead of the Alex. You can’t go wrong with either. It all boils down to whether or not you need the extra skill speed.
On to the legs you’ll want to use the Scripture pants melded with two Crit V materia. For the feet you;ll want to use the Alex boots melded with two Crit V materia. On to the accessories, for the neck you’ll use the Scripture neckband melded with a single Crit V materia. For the earrings you’ll use the Scripture earrings melded with a single Crit V materia. For the bracelet you’ll use the Scripture bracelet melded with a single Crit V materia. And for the rings you’ll use the Alex ring melded with a Det V materia and the Scripture ring melded with a single Crit V materia. For the food you’ll use the Steamed Staff until four star food prices come down to a reasonable level, in which case you’ll want to use the newer version. There’s a lot of Scripture gear in this set, so I made a quick buy order sheet for you guys to have an idea of how to purchase your gear in the coming weeks.
These are my suggestions on how to get your Alex normal gear and Scripture gear in a way that will help you during raid progression. For now I’m not making a pre-raid set, but I will be making one in patch when we have access to the new 24 man raid gear. Hopefully this buy order list and this BIS list help you guys out. Let me know if you thought this was helpful and if you want to see more of this type of content. I should have BIS lists for Ninja releasing soon after the release of this video, so keep an eye out for that. Thanks again for watching. I’ll see you guys in the next one. .
