    Shadowbringers: Materias Tiers 1-6

    All my jobs are 80, (well, RDM will be in a day or 2).

    I know I'm saving my I, II and III materia for ARR relics, but aside from that, is there any obvious uses I'm missing out of before I slap them all to the vendor?

    I forgot but someone was saying some of the gatherer/craft tier 6 materias are better than tier 7 but I don't fully understand, if someone can lay it out to me. If not, just tell me to vendor it XD

    tier 6's and 8's cannot go past the first overmeld slot, so if you're the minmax type, you have to use 7's for the rest of the overmelds
    generally speaking, tier 8 gives the highest amount of a type (say gp/perception/gathering for DoL), followed by 6, followed by 7.

    afaik you can get low level materia fairly easily from ixali/spoil exchange as far as crafter/gatherer types go but it seems like a lot of people don't really pay attention to that so sometimes low level shit sells for an OK amount

    I'd say any battle materia lower than 5 (tier 5 is basically just for blue mage at this point) is probably worthless, outside of relics. But crafting and gathering materia at any tier could potentially still be useful depending on melds. You can also try and convert lower battle materia to crafting/gathering at the materia master in Central Thanalan if you have a ton of it, but it is pretty time consuming doing that.

    All tier 6 materia has higher stats than tier 7, but tier 6 can't be overmelded beyond the first advanced melding slot. So, tier 7 materia is basically just used in overmelding.

    T1-T4 are still worth something for people who collect relic weapons like myself.

    Yep I saved all my T1-T3, waiting for flying to be unlocked in ARR areas before continuing the relics. I feel lazy to run around chasing fates and mobs lol
    I think I can spread them enough to not need to dip into T4 but I'll check the market to see what's cheap so I can go down that route if needed!
