Even after converting cracked materia, there is the possibility certain gear will see a decrease in effectiveness when compared to Version 1.0. To compensate for this loss, players will have the option to exchange any gear affixed with cracked materia for a special currency. The amount of currency received is based on the type of gear as well as the number of materia affixed. This currency can be exchanged for a variety of gear, such as those obtained in dungeons and primal battles, or darklight gear.
So, this is a combo question.
1) Will we get this special currency, ONLY, if we have cracked materia? That we can then use for this special gear obtained by fights?
2) Is this currency the something that we can also get in game and save? Its not specific to 1.0, right, you can get more and save it right? I thought I read somewhere that you can get currency from different dungeons, that's why people will keep doing the old ones, for currency to buy items... This is one in the same, right?
I just hate the idea of not being able to use it all. Like I have 100, item A costs 80, leaving me with 20. The lowest priced item is 22, making it a waste if I can't get more... Kinda like doing all the first few GC missions before picking a permanent one. I had to buy a million rat tails so I didn't waste the points. :(
Are we safe or not?
