How to get Grade 8 Dark Matter and use it in FFXIV

How to obtain and utilize Grade 8 Dark Matter in FFXIV
If you're fed up with the Mender fees in Final Fantasy XIV, it's high time to acquire some Grade 8 Dark Matter and start fixing your own gear. This not only saves a considerable amount of Gil but also a lot of effort. Plus, you'll be the friend who always comes through with the gear repair.

Locating Grade 8 Dark Matter
Some vendors offer Grade 8 Dark Matter for 280 Gil each. FFXIV crafters need one piece of Grade 8 Dark Matter for each item they repair. You can either ask friends to repair or do it yourself - either way, it's beneficial to buy a bunch so you don't have to constantly search for Mender NPCs for a quick repair. We'll point out these helpful NPCs and their locations below.
Grand Companies
Each Grand Company has its own Quartermaster, who trades 600 Grand Company Seals for Grade 8 Dark

  • Serpent Quartermaster  New Gridania (X9.8, Y11.0)
  • Flame Quartermaster  Ul’dah – Steps of Nald (X8.3, Y9.0)
