- Mutamix is willing to train you his secret materia melding techniques. However, the goblin requires proof that you are sufficiently experienced. Demonstrate your skills by melding eight pieces of materia in front of him.

- Mutamix imparts to you advanced materia melding techniques, which will allow you to attach more pieces of materia to an item than ordinarily possible. Know, though, that success is not guaranteed, and failure means losing the materia.
