    Astral Ring Melds

    Hi Folks,

    This may be covered somewhere else, but I am pretty lost as to what to do with this meld. I have full DL on my alt char BLM, with HQ Vanya hat and Vanya robe, both quad-melded with various Crit/Det/SS/Accur as permitted. I am going to get the Astral ring and meld it as much as I can, but I don't know quite what to do, it was pretty obvious with the body pieces.

    Is there conventional wisdom here? I am in the camp of Crit>Det>SS>Accur

    Actually, from what I've seen Vit is the primary meld on astral rings. Past that it is up to you, idk what the stat caps are off the top and of my head to give a specific meld setup (though I am pretty sure Vit caps at 9).

    Edit: I looked it up and it looks like given the caps a good meld setup would be
    Vit4 (vit cap 9)
    SA3 (crit cap 12)
    SA3
    QT3/HA2 (SS cap 12/ acc cap 3/ det already capped)
    Vit1

    I would meld:
    2 VIT 3s (much cheaper than a VIT4, but if you have the gil and want that extra point of VIT get a VIT4 and VIT1 instead)
    2 SA3s (Crit)
    1 QT3 (spell speed) or HE2 (Acc)

    EDIT: my Astral Ring is for a healer, with 2 SA3s, 2 QT3s and a VIT3 (I'm also really poor), so going VIT4, 2 SA3s and 2 QT3s also isn't a bad choice if you have the gil (also factor in the fact you're likely to lose many materia melding those 4th and 5th slots; SA3 run 25K-30K on my server, QT3s around 20K...trying to finish melding my Rose Gold Earrings and wasting so much trying to get that last meld)

    That was from when I had 3-4 pieces of i90 and had weakness on (as you can see). My Jump goes over 1100 now.

    Only meld VIT if you need it, otherwise meld PIE.

    Max the crit and ACC.

    Right now I kinda need vit on BLM, lol - rockin' i55 weap until I get titan with 3191hp out of party. PIE is tempting though as I'm sure it gives you some goof room on the rotation.

    So probably Vit3, Vit3, SA3, SA3, QT3 is going to be my most realistic option.

    Thank you everybody! I probably wouldn't have come to that conclusion on my own, lol!

    Meld the SA3 first lol. Guaranteed success and a high chance at success for the materia that costs the most (at least on my server). I would personally meld the VIT3 last, since they're the cheapest (again, on my server...if VIT3 are the most expensive meld them first lol)

    Apologies 1100 is ok for Jump, usually 1050 - 1150 is decent if using life surge with jump? For some strange reason

    On topic on my alt with full crafted Mage acc. I think it's important to get vit iv in 1st and put another vit I on the end for 9 vit, yes it's only 1vit for a meld slot but the only reason u will be using crafted accessories for any period of time is for the vit increase, so why not maximise it.

    I only speak from experience of my alt whm clearing twintania in full dl and crafted acc to make up for the hp. Unfortunately whm doesn't have a gear requirement like the dps assuming a decent tank as long as the hp requirement are met, 4.2k in my groups case
