Minfilia would like you to meet a distinguished individual.

— In-game description



As usual, Minfilia is in the Solar. While at the Bonfire, it is a good idea to take and complete Feature QuestForging the Spirit so you can begin accumulating materia for later use or sale.

Additionally, you have just received your first coffer. A Coffer is a container with multiple items inside. Coffers are used by the developers for two reasons, first to bypass internal limits on the number of items that can be given by a single quest. Second, it allows developers to ensure players receive gear they can use on their current class or job. Players must first use the coffer from their inventory before the gear is accessible.



  • Minfilia would like you to meet a distinguished individual.
  • Minfilia would like you to meet a goblin scholar named Mutamix, who she claims is responsible for introducing a revolutionary method of enhancing gear to Eorzea. Make your way to the goblin's encampment at the Bonfire in central Thanalan, and present Minfilia's dagger to him.
  • Arriving at the Bonfire, you are treated to a zany display by Mutamix and his students. Upon learning your identity, the knowledgeable goblin proceeds to teach you the basics of materia, a type of crystal which can be melded to items to enhance their properties. Assuming you understood correctly, only experienced Disciples of the Hand are capable of attaching these crystals. Take yourself back to the Waking Sands, and present Minfilia with her freshly enhanced dagger.
  • Minfilia impresses upon you the importance of being well equipped for battle, and encourages you to use materia to maximize the effectiveness of your gear. Keep her words in mind when preparing for the missions ahead.
