The Materia concept comes from Final Fantasy VII and gives your character another ability to use in battle. Do not worry about the number on your Materia as It will not go away with use! This is indeed how many time you must use it in order to level it. As a Materia levels it grows in power making it stronger over time. There is currently a glitch that allows materia to be leveled faster than normal; if you use a materia then change classes, the cooldown resets for that class.
Mastering Elemental Materia Edit
as you can read below, Change your hero's classes to squire from chemist will reset the cooldowns of materia, but only water and quake that can used without target.
For seal and aero, you will need to play Time Mage and your friend to play time mage for not so easy but fastest way to master materia.
TM1 = TimeMage1 , TM2 = TimeMage2
The logic is TM1 will use materia , while TM2 use his ult to TM1 so that TM1 can use materia again, and TM1 will use his ult to let TM2 use his ult to TM1 and repeat the process. beware : high amount of manna is needed for the fastest process :)
There are four elemental materia in the game. If they are used enough, they will level up to a stronger version. If all four are mastered, they can be combined at the obelisk in the Northern Mountains to form Aire Tam Enib Moc.
Water MateriaEditWater Materia summons an outward beam of water, dealing 150 damage to every enemy it hits. Using it 25 times will make it transform into Watera Materia which deals 250 damage to enemies hit.

Tonberry Materia can be obtained by completing the Friendly Monsters Miniquest. Using it summons Tonberry who slowly walks towards the enemy to finally stab them, dealing a high amount of damage. The amount of damage dealt is calculated as follows:
L = Level of Summoner
K = Kills of Summoner (maximum 4000)
(L - 10) * (L + 1) * K / 400
The damage dealt is of Holy attack type. If the target survives the attack, their armor is reduced by 400 points for the next minute( Knight's armor break will override Tonberry's Materia reduced armor, is a same type of skill). If Tonberry's stab kills them, they explode, dealing additional damage to all surrounding enemies. The AoE damage is calculated as follows:
(L * K) / 8

Diablos Materia is dropped by the ring of darkness superboss, Diablos. Using it deals damage based on percentage of current enemy HP in an AoE, therefore, this materia won't deal fatal damage. The total damage dealt is 75% percent of current enemy hp.
Diablos Materia has a 1.5 minute World Cooldown.
