Warning: This guide may contain inaccurate information. Much of my data is extrapolation, educated guesswork, or what other people have told me. Also, since prices vary from server to server (and from time to time), what I consider the cheapest or most profitable might not be cheap at all for you. If you plan to make money via desynthing, please check MB prices and confirm that my suggestions will bring you a profit on your server before proceeding.

If do you find any inaccuracies in this guide, please let me know and I will correct them!


Quick Guide

General Notes

  • Max Desynth level: 180.00 per class, 560.00 total.
  • Level used for desynth is hidden value I call "rlvl". Often same as item level, but not always! Dungeon gear: rlvl=ilvl; crafted gear 1-50: rlvl = listed recipe level; see chart in main guide for rest of list.
  • At r41+, desynth success rate = 50% if dSkill = rlvl. +/- 2% per point difference until 30%/70%, then +/- 1.5% per point until 0%/100%.
  • Bacon Broth and Tinker's Calm increase desynth success rate and stack (NQ Bacon Broth: +2.5% (HQ: +5%), NQ Tinker's Calm: +7.5% (HQ: +10%)).
  • Every materia melded = +5% to desynth chance.
  • NQ/HQ status of item does not affect desynth at all.
  • LTW/WVR/ARM/GSM good for desynthing dungeon gear.
  • BSM best for getting special demimateria (Primal/Mastercraft).
  • LTW best for FC3s (desynth bridesmaid's sandals bought from vendor).
  • ARM best for hardcore PvPers (desynth direwolf shields - gets BC3s).
  • CUL cannot get demimateria, only swimwear and ninja betta minion.
  • CRP/ALC weakest at the moment.
  • Crafted leftside items with req lvl 50, 52, 54, 56, 58 often cheap on MB due to quest rewards; trawl MB regularly for cheap desynths (under 5k).
  • Vendors sell NQ crafted items cheaply from 50-60. If mats are expensive, make profit by desynthing specific vendor-bought items.
  • Some items cannot be obtained from desynth (including Dissolvent and Shark Oil)
