MP Consumption Guide

Max out your Magic Materia levels

MP Consumption requires you to master (max out the levels) for all twelve types of magic materia. These will level up by gaining AP in battle while they are equipped. Make sure that the materia you want to level up is equipped on to a character who you will be using in battle!

Obtain 3x AP after clearing the game

EXP and AP Bonus.jpg

If you want to clear this mission the easy way, we suggest first clearing the game, at which point you will gain a 3x AP bonus. If you don't have this bonus, mastering all 12 materia will be a huge time consumer. You can level up the materia you use as you play the story, then come back to this battle report after defeating the final boss.

The AP Up Materia is essential

Another thing that is vital to mastering your materia is the AP Up materia. This will give a 2x AP bonus to whatever materia it is linked to. In the equipment page, a weapon or armor with a materia slot like this ◯-◯ indicates that you can link materia in those slots, so put both the AP Up and Magic Materia you will master in these slots.

This makes AP farming way more efficient, and we do not recommend AP Grinding to anyone who doesn't have this materia yet.

How to Get the AP Up Materia

First found in Chapter 14 as the Pedometer Materia


To get the AP Up Materia, you first need to get the Pedometer Materia in Chapter 14, then equip it and take 5,000 steps with it equipped. Be sure and equip it as soon as you find it.

Best way to level up Materia is through the Collapsed Road on Chapter 14. You get ~200AP per run. x3 if you've already beaten the game.

>>1 Clear the game first (gives triple AP) and then do Colosseum or Battle Simulator and set the fights to Easy.
