IMHO QL of Armor is determined by QL Kyr'Ozch Viralbots.

the above statement is false:

I started with ql300 pristine Bio-material which I made into ql300 DNA cocktail:

I used ql287 Kyr'Ozch Viralbots which I made into ql287 Formatted Kyr'Ozch Viralbots.

I combined ql287 Formatted Kyr'Ozch Viralbots with ql300 DNA cocktail and ended up with ql300 Kyr'Ozch Formatted Viralbot Solution.

ql300 Kyr'Ozch Formatted Viralbot Solution + Basic Legwear = ql300 Formatted Viralbot Legwear.

ql262 Spiritual Lead Viralbots + ql300 Formatted Viralbot Legwear = ql300 Spiritual Armor Legwear.

ql224 Arithmetic Lead Viralbots + ql300 Formatted Viralbot Legwear came up with this statement:

The Arithmetic Lead Viralbots must be at least level 240 to combine with the Formatted Viralbot Legwear level 300.

So in both cases where 'bots' are used: The Pristine/Mutated Bio-material determined QL.

And the 'Lead Viralbots' must be 80% of Formatted Viralbot armor's QL.
