Use[edit | edit source]
ATB Boost will allow a free ATB ability to be used when the ability is off cooldown. This either quickly charges abilities that require two ATB charges to be executed, or to use multiple abilities in quick succession. The ATB Boost has a long cooldown in between uses, though this shortens as the materia levels up. Though it normally only allows for one use per fight, in lengthier, drawn-out battles against harder bosses, ATB Boost may be used multiple times a battle.
ATB Boot has a wide variety of uses. It can be especially useful on Tifa, whose strength lies in performing her abilities together in quick succession, or Aerith, whose strength lies in using support abilities to boost her spellcasting. However, it can also be used with important materia such as Healing Materia or Prayer Materia to quickly heal the party when in a dire situation.
ATB Boost can be equipped in combination with some Complete Materia to build up a chain of abilities. With Skill Master Materia equipped on a character, they can use ATB Boost to use two abilities in quick succession, leading Skill Master to grant them yet another ability. Refocus Materia grants an extra limit break that gives a party member three ATB bars for the remainder of the battle; using ATB Boost after this limit break can allow a character to use a large number of abilities. Other complete materia, such as ATB Stagger Materia, ATB Assist Materia, Steadfast Block Materia, can be used in combination with ATB Boost to give a character a larger number of options.
