In conclusion the whole Mithril equipment system is too tedious and provides equipment with little value to be worthwhile.

Just get a Mithril Claw and maybe two Fuma Helmets and then stop bothering with it.

Can't agree with you there. I've played through the game four times and about 75% of the stuff I've forged is an improvement over my existing equipment. Besides, it takes what, 90 seconds to go to the blacksmith's and have an item forged? If you're that frugal with your time, you shouldn't be playing video games in the first place (especially not epic-length dungeon crawling RPGs like Shining the Holy Ark).

The 5 points of ATT bonus is non essential. Its a meaningless grind for no payoff. Basso isn't going to become a powerhouse just because you got a Strike Sleeve early and none of Melody's gear is going to change her damage output or role in combat.

If you want to shoot yourself in the foot then go ahead, Its not my time you're wasting. I did my due diligence listing what they do.

What grind? Again, all you do is bring the mithril to the blacksmith and tell him who you want something forged for.
