Use[edit | edit source]
ATB Assist materia increases the ATB gauge of teammates shortly after executing multiple different ATB commands in quick succession. This means the rest of the party benefits from the actions of the controlled character, and therefore it should be used on a character that the player controls often. As the materia grants ATB to other party members, it can be useful both for players who micromanage and switch between characters often, or in combination with Synergy Materia to allow abilities to be executed shortly after a character performs their moveset.
ATB Assist materia is very beneficial for Tifa. This is because she has the highest Speed, and because her abilities are best performed in quick succession in a combo, meaning she will frequently execute multiple ATB commands together, and thus benefits the other characters. However, ATB Assist can be broadly useful on any character whom the player controls frequently if said character uses different commands often.
ATB Assist materia can be used in combination with other materia that also increase characters' ATB gauges rather quickly. These include First Strike Materia, ATB Stagger Materia, Skill Master Materia, and ATB Boost Materia. By using these materia to increase the ATB gauge of one character who has ATB Assist, said characters' ATB Assist will allow the rest of the party to also benefit, greatly speeding up the rate skills can be used in a battle.
