Ok if it was discussed in another thread i am sorry and if you can direct me to that so i can read it you can lock this thread.
So i am a bit confused/curious about the materia system.
In the last beta i was able to get a few armor pieces that had sockets for materia. So my question is where do i get materia from? I know or i think i know that you craft them but what job makes them? I am curious cause i want to start making some once Friday comes to try it out.
Here are a few links to info that should explain everything you need to know about materia.
Here's a guide to the v1.0 materia system. You can ignore all the old types of materia, but how you make materia hasn't changed and you'll still need to complete a quest to do it. http://www.disciplesoftheland.com/forum.aspx?g=posts&t=617
Here's an explanation of all the changes they've made for ARR. http://lodestone.finalfantasyxiv.com/pl/topics/detail?id=d3223d6b67c1fe5c1cb03fc1b248a963d6e53673
