Warrior Tank Gear and Best in Slot — Endwalker 6.55

Last updated on Jan 27, 2024 at 00:30 by Spin 6 comments

On this page, you will find the best gear and best-in-slot items for your Warrior Tank in Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker (Patch 6.55).

1.

Warrior Gearsets (BiS)

Warriors have a number of best-in-slot possibilities, depending on the GCD speed you wish to play with. It is worth noting that, despite each set being shown with a simulated DPS number, these simulations are theoretical and have been performed in a controlled, infinite environment that does not take into account any of the variables that you may deal with in real fights. This includes, for example, the fight you are currently doing, your current party composition, and more.

The food that you choose to use will depend on the speed of the best-in-slot set you run, so make sure to check the listed consumable for each list.

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

The Omega Protocol Best-in-Slot

With the arrival of Patch 6.45, the new Majestic Manderville relic weapons have customizable stats that make them BiS for both Endwalker Ultimates.

Patch 6.55 has introduced the Mandervillous weapons, which have increased stat caps over the prior relic step. The stats you select do not change from the ones you've used since Patch 6.45, so it's only a minor DPS increase to obtain those weapons.

2.5.

The Epic of Alexander (TEA) Best in Slot

We’ve decided to not include full gear sets for The Epic of Alexander anymore, as your gear choices make very little difference in how much damage you do due to how gear syncs and removes melds. The item level listed below will outline what item level is required to max out both substats on gear for the fight. All gear above the specified item level will work:
  • Item level 595

With that being said, the biggest difference that can be made to your gear set will be equipping a Shadowbringers Relic weapon. Due to the nature of how substats are allocated on these weapons, it enables you to utilize more substats than what’s intended on a normal weapon. The Relic weapon provides a 1% damage increase for The Epic of Alexander. Stat allocation is as follows:

  • 179 Critical Hit / 181 Determination / 104 Direct Hit

Keep in mind, the Relic weapon is NOT mandatory to clear these fights. It only provides a buffer for mistakes. It’s up to the player to make the decision if the grind is worth it.

2.6.

The Weapon's Refrain (UWU) Best in Slot

We’ve decided to not include full gear sets for The Weapon's Refrain anymore, as your gear choices make very little difference in how much damage you do due to how gear syncs and removes melds. The item level listed below will outline what item level is required to max out both substats on gear for the fight. All gear above the specified item level will work:
  • Item level 500

With that being said, the biggest difference that can be made to your gear set will be equipping a Shadowbringers Relic weapon. Due to the nature of how substats are allocated on these weapons, it enables you to utilize more substats than what’s intended on a normal weapon. The Relic weapon provides a 3.5% damage increase for The Weapon's Refrain. Stat allocation is as follows:

  • 136 Critical Hit / 136 Determination / 136 Direct Hit

Keep in mind, the Relic weapon is NOT mandatory to clear these fights. It only provides a buffer for mistakes. It’s up to the player to make the decision if the grind is worth it.

2.7.

The Unending Coil of Bahamut (UCoB) Best in Slot

We’ve decided to not include full gear sets for The unending Coil of Bahamut anymore, as your gear choices make very little difference in how much damage you do due to how gear syncs and removes melds. The item level listed below will outline what item level is required to max out both substats on gear for the fight. All gear above the specified item level will work:
  • Item level 470

With that being said, the biggest difference that can be made to your gear set will be equipping a Shadowbringers Relic weapon.
