I’m confused on how to receive the memory crystals and record materia
Memory crystals are awarded upon completing the dungeons marked. A character’s first record materia comes when you get them to level 50, and use a Memory Crystal to break their level cap. The second has special conditions to unlock.
You get the memory crystal for lvl 50 breaking into level 65 at the dungeon specified. The first record materia is then provided instantly at that time. The second memory crystal to break the cap from lvl 65 to 80 and the second record materia are not clear about how to get them. We’ll probably learn that as time goes on.
Is there any other memory crystal other than Tidus and wakka you can get in English version?
As of 6/26/15 there are a bunch more. Events since the Tidus rebirth gave us Garnet, Vivi and their crystals, as well as Irvine and Squall and their crystals.
Also, various dungeons, both classic and elite have a few crystals for the likes of Tyro, Cloud, Rydia, Kain and others (but not EVERYONE that’s been released so far). Actually, some are noted in the above chart, not really sure if they were added after the comment I’m replying to or not.
I just got the 2nd record materia for Tidus and Wakka doing the Hard – Daily orb event Holy/Dark, stages 1 and 2 respectively. They were both still lvl 50, partway to lvl 51. No idea if this was due to the specific stage cleared, their experience level, or maybe a set # of stages complete.
Its completely random. I’ve spent well over 150 stamina on today’s daily dungeon and havent gotten either of their second materia. Tidus lvl 52 wakka lvl 51
I believe Wakka and Tidus RM can only be found in FFX Realm dungeons.
Correct, I can also confirm you can get them from the Friday daily, since the daily is set in the FFX realm. I just got Wakka’s Blitz-Eye RM from the second round of the hard dailies that give holy and dark orbs (name escapes me right now) about an hour ago.
I’ve yet to get Tidus’ however, since random is still random, lol
Found Vivi’s second Record Materia, it’s at the Elite Vile Peaks 2. Got it on the first stage.
“They can only be used by any characters that are level 50 for the first RM or 65 for second RM”
This isn’t correct, it should be MC in place of RM, in both cases RM is used in this sentence. The way the above makes it sound is you get your first RM at 50, which is true only if you have and use a cap breaking memory crystal, and the second RM at 65, which is untrue since it seems all second RMs are gained by completing a specific goal (and even then sometimes it can be randomized, as in any task that asks you to simply bring a character into any of their records dungeons)
Sorry if this is nitpicking but I can see how some could be confused by it. Also, the RM chart is great and but it would be cool to see the addition of how to get the second RMs; like a list of the tasks needed next to their sections.
Are there plans to add a column stating where to get a character’s second memory crystal?
I second this. Just having the info for the second RM isn’t that useful when we don’t know where to get it. Also, where’s Summoner’s info?
van/vaan’s record materia isn’t listed yet it gives attack stat increase but decreases defense name of materia in ffrk main site is Freedom’s Wish
Um, why is Seifer’s name spelled Cypher…?
Same reason Aerith and Barret have are spelled Aeries and Barrett. Translation issues.

Thx for managing this list, but I have quite big problem here since the record names are very different from US version. I assume they are rough translation from JP version. Can you please replace all names with one found in US version. I have really hard time tracking which one I got and haven’t. ^^;
Does anyone know if Rydia’s Materia works for the summon Kirin as well?
This page needs to be updated. It’s lacking several character crystals for the last few events.
Agreed. I did some testing during a daily dungeon day, and vow of vengeance and witch of succession give a good magic damage bonus. Both around equal, and weaker than devotion for obvious reasons.
But for a mage party against Rubicante, VoV and WoS are BETTER than might of water.
im frustated how to find MC2 for squall, sephiroth and cloud, anyone know how??
MC2 for any characters are currently only provided in events. I’ve heard there will be future events with blank MC2s for use. Also there will be some cid missions with blank MC2s i think.
Nice post. I learn something totally new and challenging on blogs I stumbleupon everyday.
It’s always interesting to read articles from other authors and
use something from other web sites.
I have an updated Excel file for materia, I even have future ones on the file (as best as I can get from this site since I can’t read/speak Japanese). If the site owner is willing, he can post it here as a download for all to use. It’s a printable checklist for materia farming. I would be willing to update every month or so as new skills are discovered. Again I’m in the US and don’t read/speak Japanese so there would be the obvious lag time between Kongbakpau and his friends doing the translations.
On that subject you guys do a great job here for this site. Tried to donate but don’t have a twitch account… may I suggest a quick link directly to paypal I’m unwilling to create a Twitch account.
Not to discourage you but what’s your list do that enlir’s doesn’t have?
