    Materia System

    Quote Originally Posted by Bayohne View Post

    By using the armor and weapons that you equip yourself with, you will generate "attachment points"* and when your attachment points reach 100% you will be able to convert that weapon or armor into "materia." This is known as "materia conversion." "Materia" is a crystallized form of the weapon and armor’s stats that the player has used and formed an attachment to.

    During the materia conversion process, there will be fluctuations that result in NQ stat materia, as well as HQ stat materia, even when using the same type of item. However, even the NQ stat material will have beneficial stats.

    Also, you will be able to purchase and trade materia freely.

    Crafters will be able to utilize the catalysts that gatherers obtain and attach a single materia to an item (there is no chance of failure). The materia you will be able to attach will depend on the type of weapon and the type of stat that matches the equipment slot. There are a variety of different combinations of materia that can be attached to each equipment slot’s item, so each player will need to decide what they want to pursue.

    In addition to this, you will also be able to remove materia from items that have had materia attached to them. However, upon removal you will lose the materia, so you should probably only remove it when you definitely have a better upgrade to replace it with.

    Finally, rumors tell of a forbidden technique with a high risk of failure to attach another materia to an item that already has a materia attached to it…
    We're looking forward to hearing feedback on this!

    *Rep note: Similar to "affection" not "attaching" something.
    (Please note that some terms may not be final and may be subject to change in the future.)
    (*Updated: 5:30pm PST to clarify)


    We got this message about how Materia will operate. Thanks SE.

    I have to thank Square-Enix for the amazing job they have done recreating Final Fantasy XIV from Scratch. Especially the inclusion of Missing Genders which we petitioned for in good faith. This was proof to us players that the Developers are truly Sympathetic to our requests and that being honest and vocal can pay off with the amazing characters we have who are Female Roegadyn, Male Miqote, and Female Highlanders. Thank You SE, Thank You Community Team, Thank You Yoshi-P.

    I'd rather see it being called something else myself.

    However this could have a lot of potential, assuming they don't ruin it like they did with the evolith system.

    I hope they keep the name to be honest.

    Why would it be called something else? Its the same thing than on vii minus the spells. People bitch xiv doesn't have enough ff trade symbols, and when they give them to us they just go "oh no no, can't you think of something new?"
