    Okay, passive stat boosts, like you get from Rod Mastery, scale off of the units natural stats and cap out at 400%, which includes whatever % bonuses the unit has as passive skills. TDH/TDW scales off of your EQUIPMENT's stats, and caps at 300% for TDH and 200% for TDW, including anything they get from passive skills.

    When you've got MW Terra set up as a dual wield like this, she hits the 400% stat boost cap very easily, and there is no good way to raise her TDW bonus short of a few STMRs. The only real way to bump her total MAG up higher is by raising the base stat that they scale off of: doors and pots will raise her base MAG and get more from the 400% bonus, and equipment with higher MAG stats will raise the bonus she gets from the TDW.

    This is my equivalent to that build:
    https://ffbeEquip.com/builder.html?server=GL#984f4b70-16fa-11ea-9f71-fbb311f0fb55

    As can be seen, I've got a few higher end items with bigger bonuses, and I use those to leverage space for material with HP/DEF/SPR. This is really what happens with good gear on a TDW, you don't really get higher ATK/MAG stats, instead you end up with more HP/DEF/SPR. My MAG is only ~250ish points higher, but I have almost three times the effective HP.

    Yeah. Drop some MAG stats in favor of more HP/DEF/SPR. Mages are far too squishy and it doesn't matter how high their MAG stat is if they're dead. ADV5 and Chocobo Adventurer are always on my mage units.
