I saw a materia that adda elemental properties to your weapon. It seems to add damage to your every attack by a small percentage. That bonus damage might scale with your character's stats.

>>27 Certain characters have always been designed to do a specific task in the game. Not doing so will make the game harder to balance. By adding stat raising materia, you can make your characters more flexible allowing you to play them in a DIFFERENT role than they were designed for.

      Thank you for giving me hope! I didn't know it was coming out on xbox! But maybe at that point you might as well wait for a PS5 version and play with a PS5?
