This is an Empyrean Equipment guide for Paladin, based on my other guides. As I haven't finished leveling this job yet, I can't give specific advice as to alternate gear and which pieces are truly helpful. If you have leveled this job and have any advice, please let me know, either on the talk page or my user talkpage. Otherwise, please enjoy the guide. Feel free to make minor corrections as you see fit, but no major changes...I want to keep this simple. Thanks! --Kraftlos (talk) 08:47, October 18, 2012 (UTC)

To upgrade your equipment, you must be level 75 and you must have started the relevant trial. When you are ready, trade one piece of equipment to the Magian Moogle in Ru'Lude Gardens (H-5) and review the trial, then the moogle will inscribe the trial on your armor piece. When you've collected the seals, return and trade the armor and the required seals to the to chest on the right, then trade the armor to the Moogle receive the +1 version. Unfortunately, the three accessory pieces can't be upgraded.
- Zukin - 8 Iga Seal: Head (Trial 4168)
- Ningi - 10 Iga Seal: Body (Trial 4348)
- Tekko - 8 Iga Seal: Hands (Trial 4208)
- Hakama - 8 Iga Seal: Legs (Trial 4188)
- Kyahan - 8 Iga Seal: Feet (Trial 4208)
A lot of these can be obtained from zone bosses. It's always good to check and see if you can get several quests done at once. Like the previous upgrades, these are exchanged via the Magian Moogle in Ru'Lude Gardens. Because these are used by multiple jobs, you will likely be lotting against the other party or alliance members to get these.
- Zukin - 6 Coins of Vision (Trial 4228)
- Ningi - 9 Stones of Ardor (Trial 4388
- Tekko - 6 Cards of Wieldance (Trial 4368)
- Hakama - 6 Stones of Balance (Trial 4248)
- Kyahan - 6 Cards of Voyage (Trial 4268)
