Item Master materia improves the efficacy of items used by the user by +30% at level 1, +40% at level 2, and +50% at level 3. In most playthroughs, the materia can be more efficient than equipping several Magic Materia Magic Materia, as items have a wide variety of effects, and improving the amounts they heal by or the amounts they damage can be more useful in battle in some cases. It can also be useful on characters with a lower Magic Magic attribute, such as Tifa or Barret. The player can substitute it with the healing carcanet to free up a materia slot in favor of an accessory slot. The effect of both also stacks, so for the best healing from items the player can equip both healing carcanet and the item master at once.

In hard mode, Item Master is redundant, because items cannot be used.
