Omni-Gearing for Caster Jobs

Last updated on Apr 20, 2022 at 02:00 by Lana 1 comment

This page contains all of the information for gearing multiple jobs that fall under the Caster role category.

1.

Omni-Caster Best-in-Slot

The differences in preferred substats prevents there from being a true omni-BiS set for casters. Black Mage prefers higher amounts of Spell Speed while Red Mage tries to avoid it as much as possible. Summoner can opt for a high or low amount of Spell Speed, allowing it to work with either of the other caster's BiS sets effectively. While some pieces are shared for certain sets on the three casters, meld differences often make it expensive and unreasonable to swap between each caster for whatever content you are doing. Therefore, players who plan on using all three casters will often opt for BiS sets that share a minimum amount of gear. It is possible to have two of the same piece of gear by placing the duplicates in your Chocobo Saddlebag or retainer, but this often requires extra work that will only be necessary for the most dedicated players. Below you can find links to each job's Best-in-Slot pages, as well as links to gearsets that are the easiest for players looking to play all three casters.

The buttons linked below will lead you to the job specific gearing pages.
