Final Fantasy 7 Remake Support Materia Locations, Combinations and Effects
Materia are magical orbs that you can fuse with your weapons or character and gain varying buffs and stats in FF7 Remake.
With all the range of abilities FFVII Remake has to offer, you can combine their usage, and adjust variations based on what enemy you are facing or make up for what your character is lacking in.
And the best part is that Materia has its own leveling system in place meaning they gain EXP alongside you, level up to grow stronger and may even develop new skills for your use.
Now what you need to know about Support Materia is that they are meant to be combined with other Materia in order to give the other Materia different effects. Materia can only be combined in Linked Materia slots.
Elemental materia adds whatever the element of your linked materia is, to your equipment.
This does two things, first it gives your attacks that element damage and at the same time provides added defense against that element.
If more than one is set than the one that was set first takes precedence, so don’t waste your materia!
Level 1: Weapon: Gives 8% linked elemental damage dealt. Armor: Halves linked elemental damage taken.
Level 2: Weapon: Gives 15% linked elemental damage dealt. Armor: Prevents linked elemental damage taken.
Level 3: Weapon: Gives 23% linked elemental damage dealt. Armor: Absorbs linked elemental damage taken.
The way you can get the Elemental Materia is after you defeating the two Queen Grashtrikes in Chapter 6. Progress through Chapter 6 until you have to power down 3 lamps. Go down the ladder near the second lamp till you reach the enemies.
This Materia allows you to increase the range of spells with the linked Materia. What this means is that your spells affect multiple enemies though at reduced effects.
This negative reduction reduces as the Materia levels up. If you want to switch your spell back to target a single foe with the full effect, just press L1 when you select your desired spell.
Level 1: effect reduced by 60% when expanded
Level 2: effect reduced by 45% when expanded
Level 3: effect reduced by 25% when expanded
