Tips and Strategies

Don't Miss the Rare Materia

ElementalMateria.jpeg

Chapter 6 is host to the Elemental Materia, extremely rare and valuable throughout the game, as well as the Chocobo & Moogle Materia, which can only be obtained by completing an optional area within this chapter. Check the Story Walkthrough above for details on obtaining both of these Materia!

Buy Smelling Salts

In the first area of Sector 4 Plate, before climbing down the ladder, go to the Vending Machine. This is the first opportunity to buy Smelling Salts - you'll need these when fighting Blugu, as it can put your party members to Sleep.
