What is Materia?
Materia are rocks equipped to use magic.
To equip materia you must have a weapon
that has materia slots. To check this
go to your menu screen, then equip,
then select Weapon. It will give you
a list of weapons that character can
equip. Select which and it will show
you how many materia slots that weapon
has and it's magic growth. Magic growth
is how fast the equipped materia will
gain ap. A magic growth of single will
give the materia in the slots the exact
amount of ap gained, double magic growth
is double the amount of ap gained and
triple is triple the growth. Now go
back to the Menu then select Materia.
It gives you a the weapon an armor that
you have equipped and whether or not
is has materia slots. Select the slot
you want to equip a piece of materia
in then it will give a list of materia
that you have. It will also show the
abilities and stat bonuses gained by
equipping this materia, also the level
it is on (shown by stars, when all stars
all filled then it is mastered and it
will make another of that materia).
For example if you equip a fire materia
on lvl 1, you can use the spell fire
in battle. You also get some stat changes
of strength -1, magic +1, max hp -02%,
and max mp +02%.
Types of Materia
There are 5 kinds of materia. Blue (Support),
Red (Summon), Yellow (Command), Green
(Magic), and Purple (Independent). Commands
will appear automatically on you command
screen once a piece of yellow materia
is equipped, summons will do the same.
But summons and some others will give
you stat changes, summons usually give
more drastic changes. Independent materia
is equipped to make a change on your
character and does not need to be connected
to another piece of materia to take
effect, like mega all does it's effect
on all of that character's materia without
having to be directly paired with it
to take effect. Support materia, however,
must be paired with another piece of
materia to work. And sometimes it won't
work like for example connecting quadra
magic with Knights of The Round Summon
will do nothing because Knights of The
Round can only be casted once. And pairing
all with Ultima magic will do nothing
because Ultima already effects all enemies.
So take great care in what materia you
connect with support materia.
In some weapons there are two slots
that are connected. This means that
you can connect a green, yellow, or
red materia to a blue materia. For instance
you take a fire magic and place it in
one of those slots. Then take an all
materia and place it in the slot that
is connected to it, you will get a fire
spell that effects all enemies. This
does not work on summons however. But
hp or mp absorb will. It will absorb
the enemies hp or mp when you use the
paired materia. If there is any questions
email or im me.
What about Enemy Skill?
Enemy skill is a diff type of materia
all together. You must wait for the
enemy to use a learnable skill on the
character with the enemy skill. To make
things easier just manipulate the enemy
(if possible) and have it use the skill
on the proper character.
