On this page, you will find the best gear and best-in-slot items for your Paladin Tank in Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker (Patch 6.4).


Paladin Gearsets (BiS)

This page list best-in-slot gear for Paladin. This page is up to date as of patch 6.4.

For more detail on how substats work, see the melding and stat priority page:

Portions of best-in-slot gear sets can only be acquired by clearing the current Savage raid tier. See the guide page for more information:


Paladin Patch 6.4 Best-in-Slot Gearset

Best-in-slot gearset includes food.


Gearsets for Old Ultimate Raids

Sufficiently high item level gear pieces will cap both substats when item-level synced. The required item levels for capping substats after sync are 470 for UCoB, 500 for UWU, and 600 for TEA.

Going into old ultimates with fully synced gear is good enough to clear any of the ultimates, and will not be too far off of true best-in-slot. Use the Tank Gear Calculator sync tabs to evaluate different gearsets.

The item-level 515 and 535 relics from Shadowbringers have individually assignable substats, meaning they can be allocated to lose fewer/no substats after syncing down. The substat caps for the Paladin sword are 91 for UCoB, 97 for UWU, and 131 for TEA, while the caps for the Paladin shield are 36 for UCoB, 39 for UWU, and 53 for TEA. For using these relic weapons in synced content, assign substats up to the relevant sync cap in the order of crit > determination > tenacity > skill speed.
