Last updated on Aug 24, 2022 at 05:53 by Lynn and Dook 8 comments

On this page, you will find the best gear and best-in-slot items for your Machinist DPS in Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker (Patch 6.2).


Machinist Gearsets

This section covers the endgame best-in-slot gear sets for Machinist in different endgame content. The gear sets are made by calculating the average DPS output of the rotation with a given stat set and comparing it to other options. If you are interested in making your own gear sets and comparison, you can check out the Machinist Gear and Rotation Calculator.

If you are currently gearing up your Machinist, you can find more information about the stat priorities and effects in our guide's melding section.


Patch 6.2 Gearsets (Savage and Augmented Tome Best-in-Slot)

All three of these sets are very close in damage, however if you are not capable of adjusting for skill speed, consider taking the 2.50 GCD set above all else. The 2.47 GCD set is the highest simulated DPS set of the three, and also functions the best with the downtime this tier, but requires you to drift Wildfire in your burst window, or add in filler combo actions to avoid this drift.


Best-in-Slot Set (2.50s GCD)


Best-in-Slot Set (2.47s GCD)


Best-in-Slot Set Set (2.44s GCD)


Patch 6.2 Gearsets (Savage Progression / Crafted)

Both of these gearsets are very close in simulated DPS. The Crafted Earrings set will do more damage, but also forces you to use an uncommon GCD speed. When deciding on which set to use, this should be a consideration.


Crafted Progression Set (2.50s GCD)


Crafted Progression Set (2.50s GCD)


Dragonsong's Reprise Best-in-Slot

With the arrival of the new Relic weapons, the Manderville weapon is now better to use than the Asphodelos weapon. The Ultimate weapon still out-performs both the Relic and Asphodelos weapons.
