I notice gear has an "Optimal Rank" on it, but you can equip the gear before this rank. Anyone know if this affects anything?

My guess and it's only a guess is that you don't get 100% benefit from that item until you reach that level. I don't know for sure though, just a thought.

That's my theory so far, hopefully if this is the case they change it so some of the numbers will turn red or something when you mouse over an equipped item thats under Optimal.

Yeah it's tedious right now, but for my rank12 conjurer I have a maple wand with optimal7 and a willow wand optimal22...a few ranks back it was still better to use the maple, now I just got to where the gimped willow stats are slightly better than the old maple wand

The tedious part being equipping one and looking at all your stats then equipping the other and seeing the easier way would be nice...

I'd assume it's pretty much like Level Sync from FFXI where at the "optimal rank" all of the stats are fully utilized and anything below it you get lesser stats.
