What are Atma?

An Atma is a key item that when infused to a player possessing a Lunar Abyssite will grant the player enhancements specific to that particular Atma. These Atma can be infused to a player by use of an Atma Infusionist found near the entrance of any Abyssea area, near the Conflux Surveyor and Cruor Prospector NPCs.

A player can only be infused with one Atma per Lunar Abyssite they possess (currently this limit is three Lunar Abyssites, so only three Atma can be equipped at any one time) and cannot attempt to infuse themselves with the same Atma twice. At any point, a player can return to the Atma Infusionist to purge themselves of a particular Atma to obtain a new one.

Atma effects extend to a player's pet (Avatar, Automaton, etc.), giving them enhancement effects equal to that of the player.

How to Obtain Atma

Atma can currently be obtained in one of two ways.

Natural Atma

These Atma can be obtained by exploiting the weakness of particular Notorious Monsters that appear in Abyssea zones. While there are three different ways of exploiting a mob's weakness, to obtain key item drops (including Atma), red exclamation marks accompanying a Terror effect are what players need to aim for. In order to force this effect, players must utilize certain elemental Weapon Skills at particular times during the course of fighting the particular Notorious Monster.

Weapon Skills can only be used when the monster is not casting any form of magic spell or preparing/using any TP move. This includes the moment that the spell/ability first begins "charging" to the point that the effect animation ends. Additionally, if the mob is stunned or terrorized from some other effect (Stun, Nightfall's additional effect, etc) and are unable to perform any action, currently has a two-hour effect active (some mobs, such as Cuelebre are exceptions), or is currently afflicted with a blue or yellow exclamation mark weakness, it is impossible to trigger red exclamation marks until these effects wear off and they are able to attack normally again.

  • Certain Notorious Monsters such as Shinryu and Karkadann have melee swings that count as TP moves when trying to trigger a weakness effect, so in addition to timing attacks to avoid spell casts to TP moves, players must also correctly time their attacks to land during the pause between melee swings.

If successful in triggering with the proper weaponskill, an animation of two red exclamation marks (see image at right) will appear over the monster's head, accompanied by this message in the chat log.

Triggering red exclamation marks once is usually sufficient to ensure the "drop" of an Atma following the monster's defeat, however there are some reports that even with a single red stagger, the Atma didn't drop. This is a rarity, and most of the time, the Atma will drop upon successfully staggering the notorious monster a single time. Any subsequent "procs" of the red exclamation marks on the same monster will decrease the chance of the Atma dropping.

    • If the Notorious Monster goes idle at any point in the battle after it has been staggered, the effects of the previous stagger will be wiped, and it will need to be staggered again to increase the chance of the Atma dropping. If the monster goes idle, the weaponskill needed to trigger the stagger will also reset, meaning that it may require a different weaponskill to stagger it again.

For players that have the Abyssite of Discernment, using an elemental weapon skill can result in a message in the chatlog stating the element of the weapon skill needed to trigger the red exclamation marks. The elemental weapon skill does not need to be from the list of weapon skills that are able to trigger the effect, so long as they are weapon skills that would give amber light when used to kill a normal Abyssea mob.

Below is the message shown when the Abyssite of Discernment gives a wind elemental reading.

  • It may take several elemental weapon skills before the Abyssite of Discernment gives a message as to the element of the required weapon skill.

Synthetic Atma

In the entrance area to Vision, Scars, and Heroes of Abyssea areas, an NPC known as an Atma Fabricant is capable of creating Atma from memories of various different goals that the player has completed in exchange for a certain amount of Cruor (this amount is dependent on the particular Atma created).
