I've noticed that all armor has an "Optimal Level" and then certain classes can equip it. I can't find though if the "Optimal Level" corresponds with the class level or your physical level. Can anyone explain please?

Also when it says "Disciplines of Magic and War" under class is that FFXIV way of saying "All Jobs"?

No armor has an "Optimal Level" All armor, however, has an "Optimal Rank."

There's no such thing as "class level". It's "class rank." Since class is ranks and physical is levels, "Optimal Rank" obviously must refer to class rank.

No, when it means "All Classes" it says "All Classes". "Disciplines of Magic and War" excludes Discipline of the Land (gatherers: Botantist, Miner, Fisherman) and Discipline of the Hand (crafters: Goldsmith, Blacksmith, Weaver, Culinarian, Alchemist, Carpenter, Leatherworker).

Thanks. Since it says "Optimal" and not "Required" is it possible to wear something higher than your class rank? Like say I have armor for my 15 MRD that can also be worn by LCN, but my LCN is only 10 do I have to wait or is it synced down?

It's synced down *and* it wears out faster. It's better to wear level-appropriate armor if you can, but it's definitely possible to put it on.

You can wear them, but you will have diminished bonuses and maybe higher damage.
