Materia (FF14)

This page remains incomplete.

Materia (マテリア [materia] in Japanese) is a fragment of crystallized aether in Final Fantasy XIV. It is formed by a process called spiritbonding, in which an item that's been with its bearer for some time is changed into aether with a device called Materia Assimilator. The process of making materia was, if not invented, then facilitated greatly by the famed goblin Mutamix Bubblypots, once of the goblin fraternity of Illuminati, now the leader of a group called Carriers of the Cauldron, who make it their life's mission to spread knowledge about materia and its usages all over Eorzea.

Materia comes in various varieties and grades, presented in more detail below. However, no matter how good your materia it doesn't do any good until it is attached to suitable equipment. This is done through a process called materia melding, which requires the usage of a Materia Melder. The process attaches the materia to the equipment with a catalyst. Different types and grades of materia require different catalysts as well. At first you will only be able to attach one materia to one piece of equipment, but once you've gained some experience with melding you will unlock the ability to meld multiple materia into one equip, up to 5. However, while chances to meld the first materia into an equipment is 100%, with each additional one your chance of success is less, resulting in it being extremely rare to have a piece of equipment with a full roster of materia on it.

To gain access to making materia out of your old equipment, you must complete the quest Forging the Spirit. Likewise, to be able to meld materia requires the completion of the quest Waking the Spirit.
