FFXIV Budget & RNG-friendly 5.31 Diadem build for every node bonus (Requires HQ food to meet Gathering and Perception stat bonuses) By: class b Healer-chan


Hello. First time posting a guide here so apologies in advance for any mistakes or if I’ve overlooked something. I’ve been trying out builds for Diadem ever since 5.31 released and finally ended up with what I think is a budget-friendly build that also tries to keep the RNG (overmelding) aspect at a minimum.

Some key points from this build:

  • Lowest overmeld percentage is 10%, from using a single Tier VII materia

  • Highest amount of required materia are Tier IVs, which cost 25 Yellow Scrips each from Scrip Exchange Vendors


Required food (to meet both Gathering and Perception bonuses): Mushroom Saute HQ

The build gives you the following base stats: 2,668 Gathering / 2,606 Perception / 858 GP

Using the food gives you a total of: 2,744 Gathering / 2644 Perception / 858 GP

NOTE: Going with this build and not using food would still meet the GP bonus (+5 Gathering Attempts)

There might be more efficient melds that I haven’t figured out. If so, feel free to post in the comments 🙂

List of required materia for reference:

1x Gatherer’s Grasp Materia I

19x Gatherer’s Grasp Materia IV

1x Gatherer’s Grasp Materia VI

1x Gatherer’s Grasp Materia VIII
