Glossary of Terms

The following is a list of common in-game terms which do not have their own article of the same title, are commonly confused, and/or may refer to more than one distinct concept. Links which refer to entries within this page are preceded by a hashtag (#) sign.

A[edit | edit source]

Ability[edit | edit source]

When used as a noun, includes all battle actions (selected by swiping right on a character such as Magic Abilities and Special Abilities) and passive skills.

When used as an adjective preceding #Materia, it refers to an item which may be equipped to a unit's ability slot.

E[edit | edit source]

Equipment[edit | edit source]

An item which is either a(n) Weapon, Armor, or Accessory.

H[edit | edit source]

Hybrid Damage[edit | edit source]

A combination of #Physical Damage and #Magic Damage. A simple but accurate way of thinking about hybrid damage is that you're attacking with half of the #Skill Modifier as physical damage and the other half modifier as magic damage.

More details at Mechanics.

M[edit | edit source]

Magic Damage[edit | edit source]

Damage calculated based on your MAG and your target's SPR.

More details at Mechanics.

Materia[edit | edit source]

An item that bestows an #Ability and which is not a piece of #Equipment.

This term is never encountered during normal game play, but is used on by the community to distinguish ability items from those skills which a unit may learn innately or acquire from an Esper.

Mission[edit | edit source]

An objective which, if available, is listed on the first screen after selecting a #Stage (before companion selection). These goals must be satisfied during a stage for a reward (usually lapis Lapis but may be something else for certain Event stages).

Not to be confused with #Quest.

P[edit | edit source]

Physical Damage[edit | edit source]

Damage calculated based on your ATK and your target's DEF.

More details at Mechanics.

Q[edit | edit source]

Quest[edit | edit source]

An ambiguous term which usage depends on context. When used without a qualifier (such as Story Quest), it may refer to:

  1. . The objectives listed on the Quest List page.
  2. . Dungeons, Explorations, and #Vortex stages.

To avoid confusion this wiki should use stage when referring to the latter and reserve quest for the former.

See also entry for #Story Quest and article on Daily Quests. Not to be confused with #Mission.

S[edit | edit source]

Skill Modifier[edit | edit source]

A multiplier of your basic attack damage. For example, Mirror of Equity has a skill modifier of 1.2 and thus deals on average 1.2 times the damage of your basic attack.

SPR[edit | edit source]

The statistic which mitigates magic damage. This is an abbreviation of spirit.

Stage[edit | edit source]

A location in the game which generally requires energy to access; the only stages which do not require energy are the Boss Trials in the Farplane. This wiki generally does not use this term when referencing Colosseum rounds even though the game may show a "Stage Clear" reward screen when rounds are completed.

The term stage should be used instead of quest on this wiki when applicable to avoid confusion. See also entry for #Quest.

Story Quest[edit | edit source]

Generally synonymous with dungeon, these are stages accessible via the World Map which have a maroon-colored background. (Not explorations or Esper battles, which have a green background)

T[edit | edit source]

Trial[edit | edit source]

Generally refers to the Chamber of the Fallen, which was formerly the Vortex of Trials prior to Version 2.0.0.

V[edit | edit source]

Vortex[edit | edit source]

The in-game menu where Events, Vortex of Desires, Chamber of the Fallen, and other Special Vortex may be accessed.
