Personally, I have been using most of the old Final Fantasy XIV ARR accessories, and they seem to be very sufficient. Do you have pentamelded accessories from Final Fantasy XIV ARR?

Can anyone link me with an Ariyala showing the suggested melds in the HQ crafted vanilla gear across all three gathering classes in order to be able to gather the highest tier items in the game? I am about to hit 60 across all three gathering classes and going to craft up my gear, but I would like information on the most appropriate melds. Also, what is pretty much the bare minimum Gathering, Perception, and GP needed in order to gather the highest tier items? Thanks!
You can get the highest tier items even with sub-optimal melds... You just can't collect 3 collectables in a single run, that's all. I guess what you should be asking, is "what kind of melds can let you use a rotation that can obtain the highest number of collectables per run"... I'd say 600-ish gathering and 650 perception. 650 perception will allow you to obtain sufficient collectability using almost any of the most popular rotations out there. As for gathering, 600-ish is already sufficient to gather items for red scrips. 645 gathering will let you one-shot reach the legendary node items, and 725 gathering will let you reach 100% success rate when you use Sharp Vision II + King's Yield II. So, it really depends on what you're trying to do.
For GP, standard minimum is 600. 630 is recommended by me, as it allows you to reach 650 when you use a cheap food... And 650 pretty much guarantees an extra Sharp Vision for collectables, making you bulletproof from failing at 95% success rate by adding that extra 5%. Having 650 base GP value is even better as you dont need to use food at all.
I'm not a fisher, but from what I heard, even when your gathering is extremely high, the highest tier of fish can still "escape" sometimes anyway... So gathering is just "the more, the better". With Red Scrips, you can eventually purchase the i180 tools by trading in Red Tokens. Those can help a lot to increase gathering.

If you don't, you will need to meld your HW accessories, but you can then meld less stats onto your left gear. If you do have pentamelded ARR accessories like me, then you will need to push a bit more on the melding of your left gear.
