Materials are a collection of class-specific ERC-1155 tokens that will become a new composable building block in the axie ecosystem. It will be the primary cost for upgrades, and eventually will become the base ingredients for crafting, among other things.
It is the glue that ties Axie Core game loops together, and it allows us to have all the necessary levers to balance and control the economy. Materials will be obtainable in several ways, and used in many ways.
Materials are ERC1155 tokens, so you may buy/sell Materials in the App.Axie marketplace through the Materials page.
Types of Materials
There are three types of materials currently available, Radiant Spirit Shells, Class Mementos, and Atia Original Crystals.
Radiant Spirit Shells
Radiant Spirit Shells are used to upgrade Collectible axie parts.
They can be obtained through the Lucky Pouches in Garuda Shrine Shop. You are guaranteed to get one from ascending Mystic axies as well.
Class Mementos are used to upgrade axie parts.
They can be obtained by releasing axies.
Atia Original Crystal
Atia Original Crystals [AOC] are used for claiming ORIGIN axies.
You need 5 AOC to get one ORIGIN axie, with a chance of it having Mystic parts.
They can only be obtained through events or by purchasing from other players.
How to Get Radiant Spirit Shells
You have a small chance of getting Radiant Spirit Shells from Lucky Pouches in the Garuda Shrine Shop. Redeeming Premium Lucky Pouches gives you a higher chance of getting one compared to regular Lucky Pouches.
You are also guaranteed to get one Radiant Spirit Shell every time you ascend a Mystic axie.
How to Get Class Mementos
You get different amounts of Class Mementos from releasing axies, depending on the class parts, on-chain level, and breed count of the axie you are releasing. If the axie you are releasing has multiple parts of the same class, you get a chance to get more materials of that class.
Step 1: Follow our guide to releasing axies. On the release screen, you should see the estimate of materials you'll get from releasing the axie[s].
Step 2: After releasing the axies, wait for a few minutes for the materials to be sent to you. You'll then get a prompt regarding the released axies giving you a parting gift. Click on View materials.
Step 3: You'll see a summary of the materials you received, and you'll be able to see and use them in your Inventory/wallet.
Estimating the Number of Class Mementos from Releasing an Axie
To get an estimate of how many of a specific Class Memento you'll get, you may refer to the following Class Memento allocation and bonus materials table below.
You may refer to this table for an estimated total number of Class Mementos you'll get from releasing an axie. To get an estimate of how many of a specific Class Memento you'll get, you may multiply the number to the allocations on the table above.
The estimated numbers on this table already includes the bonus from ascensions/level of the axie.
The following is a sample calculation of the estimated Class Mementos you'll get from a specific axie.
NOTE: This is an estimated number of Class Mementos you'll get. The final amount may vary and will be shown to you on the results screen after you release the axie.
How to Get Atia Original Crystals
Atia Original Crystals [AOC], formerly known as Axie Origin Coin, are used to claim ORIGIN axies. You also have a chance to get a Mystic part on the ORIGIN axie you claim.
If you had unclaimed AOC on the Ethereum network, they were migrated to the Ronin network on January 22, 2024. The new AOC should be on the same wallet address you've had them, but on the Ronin network instead of the Ethereum network. You should be able to see them if you import your Ethereum wallet's secret recovery phrase into the Ronin Wallet app/extension.
If you didn't have any unclaimed AOC tokens, the only way to obtained them is through special events or by purchasing them from other players on the App.Axie Marketplace. There's only a limited number of AOC tokens left, once the supply has all been claimed there is no way to get more.
