FFXIV: ARR – Updates to Materia System

  • Stat variation within grades of materia have been abolished.
  • The number of materia grades has been increased to five.
  • Catalysts have been consolidated into five grades of one type.
  • Gear-type restrictions on materia have been abolished; it will be possible to meld them to accessories.
  • Gear and any materia already affixed to said gear will no longer be lost as a result of a failed melding attempt.
  • You will no longer need to unequip gear in order to attach materia to it.
  • Materia have been consolidated into 24 varieties.
  • Materia created will now be based on gear class rather than gear slot. For example, a cobalt cuirass worn by Disciples of War is more likely to create materia for a tanking class, whereas a felt robe worn by Disciples of Magic is more likely to create materia for a casting class.
