V Matrix System

V Matrix is a system for characters who have advanced to their 5th Job Advancement, making use of Nodes to allow them to obtain new skills, enhance specific skills, or raise the power of those skills through Node enhancements.[1]

System

Every job in the game will receive the V Matrix system upon advancing to 5th Job. This system will allow the player to customize their skills so that the player can choose what skills to work on. The player will start out with 4 slots at Level 200, and gain an additional slot every 5 levels, and each slot will be taken up by one of the following types of Nodes:

  • Skill Node: Grants a special skill for all jobs, or certain groups of jobs.
  • Boost Node: Grants a node that boosts the final damage for 3 skills of a job by varying amounts based on the job and skill (meaning the skills will only belong to 1 job). These can reach up to Level 25 on a single node without Matrix Points, but can be combined with another Boost Node to reach up to Level 50.
    • On top of final damage, these give additional boosts at Level 20 and Level 40. Most Boost Nodes give either Mob Count +1, +5% Critical Rate, or +10% Damage against normal monsters at Level 20, and +20% Ignored Enemy Defense at Level 40.
  • Special Node: Grants a special buff after achieving certain conditions (such as attacking a certain number of times or using a Rune). Note that these nodes only last 7 days (168 hours / 1 week), so it might be recommended to disassemble the Node, as discussed later on.

When it comes to Boost Nodes, it is recommended to obtain 3 useful skills for their job within the same node, rather than skills that the player does not use. As for Skill Nodes, the skill categories are as follows (for more information on each skill, click the respective skill):

  • Enhancing Nodes

    Any Skill Node or Boost Node can be enhanced up to Level 25 in a single node. To enhance a Skill Node, the player must obtain an identical node to the skill the player want to enhance; for example, for Howling Gale, the player must have a Howling Gale node. To enhance a Boost Node, the top skill on the trio must be identical to one that the player want to use to enhance the skill (for example, if the player has a node with Song of Heaven, Trifling Wind III, and Storm Bringer (in order), the player can use any node that has Song of Heaven as the top skill to enhance it.)

    To enhance a node, the player must talk to a Node Master in certain areas of Arcane River in order to open the UI (in Vanishing Journey, the player must talk to Archelle; in Chu Chu Island, the player must talk to Lyon after completing the questline, and in Morass, the player must talk to Hirrel; Lachelein, Arcana, and Esfera currently do not have Node NPCs). The player can obtain Nodestones from any monster in the Arcane River region, as well as from other players or in special events.

    Disassembling and Crafting Nodes

    Nodes can be crafted based on their needs (mostly for enhancing), as well as disassembled if not needed. To disassemble a node, talk to a Node Master, and the player can disassemble any nodes the player do not need, and the player will receive Node Shards based on the type of nodes. With these shards, the player can craft a node of their choice, or a Nodestone for 35 shards. The amounts are as follows:

    • Boost Node: 10 Node Shards (Disassemble) / 70 Node Shards (Craft)
    • Skill Node: 40 Node Shards (D) / 140 Node Shards (C)
    • Special Node: 50 Node Shards (D) / 250 Node Shards (C)

    The Boost Node the player crafts will be based on the top skill that the player is trying to upgrade. Note that the Special Node will also last 7 days.

    Matrix Points

    For every level the player gains past 200, the player will obtain 1 Matrix Point, which can be used to level a node slot of their choice by up to 5 additional levels. This will also allow the player to level each individual node up to Level 30 (giving a total of Level 60 between 2 Boost Nodes).

    Quest

    Call of the Erdas

    Once the player reaches Level 200, the Memory Keeper will contact the player to see if they are ready to attempt the 5th Job Advancement. He will allow the player to access The Erda Flow, which tells the player that the Black Mage is trying to harness the energy of the Erda.

    Preparing for Power

    Once the player explains to the Memory Keeper what the player encountered, he will have the Temple Keeper make sure the player is worthy of accepting a higher power. The player must have have a minimum of 100 Star Force, as well as a minimum of 10 Stars on their weapon. Once the player has achieved this, the player will pass the Temple Keeper's test, and send the player back to the Memory Keeper.

    Blessings of the Goddess

    After returning to the Memory Keeper, he tells the player that the player need to receive the blessing of the goddesses of Maple World, Grandis, and Tynerum, accessible through Horizon Portals in certain maps. Each of the goddesses will give the player a test to see if they are worthy of passing, and rewards the player with an Arcane Stone. The tests are as follows:

    Record of Power

    Once the player completes the tests of each goddess, the player will have an Arcane Stone from each one. The Memory Keeper will grant the player the 5th Job Advancement, all 3 of their main Skill Nodes based on their job, and 5 regular Nodestone. The Memory Keeper will tell the player that they can fill up each Arcane Stone with 500,000,000 (500 million) EXP. The player can only fill up one stone at a time. For each stone the player fill, the player will be given a Goddess EXP Potion, granting the player an additional 500,000,000 EXP each as a reward for filling up each stone.

    A Greater Power

    Finally, the Memory Keeper will teach the player about Arcane Power, which is needed to damage enemies in the area created by the Black Mage with the Erda's power, Arcane River. First, he will have the player defeat 10 Happy Erdas without any Arcane Power (dealing 10% damage due to the lack of Arcane Power) to show the player how tough the enemies are. He will then lend the player a plain Arcane Symbol that cannot level up, but will be acceptable for the time being as the player help Kao out in the first area, Vanishing Journey...
