To begin with, there are some components in the game that are meant purely for cash. It is possible to use them on weapons and accessories but they are wasted that way. These gil components are: Credit Chip, Incentive Chip, Cactuar Doll, Moogle Puppet, Tonberry Figurine, Plush Chocobo, Gold Dust, Gold Nugget, and Platinum Ingot. A few of the organic components are similar in that they are better for selling than using. These are: All the Seeds, all the dews, all the fruits, Green Needle, Perfume, Gloomstalk, and Sunpetal.

Another type of component are the Catalysts. These are used when a weapon or accessory has reached the level * (star) and are ready to be transformed into a new item. The 3 most expensive of these are sold at the R&D Depot. These are: Trapezohedron (used for highest grade weapons for each character), Dark Matter, and Adamantite. The rest of the catysts can be bought at The Motherlode. These are: Millerite, Rhodochrosite, Cobaltite, Perovskite, Uraninite, Mnar Stone, and Scarletite.

Now for the majority of components. Components are used to upgrade accessories and weapons. The components table is separated into five sections. The first is the name of the component. The second is the EXP value of the component. The EXP value is the number that one of the component will add when used to upgrade. The best components to increase EXP value compared to their buy price are: Ultracompact Reactor, Supercharger, Particle Accelerator, Turboprop, Superconductor, Perfect Conductor, Chobham Armor, Bomb Core, and Tesla Turbine.

The third value of the components table is Multiplicity. Multiplicity is the multiplier value. There is a hidden value that once it peaks a certain number you will gain 1.5 to 3 times effect on upgrading components EXP. The best components for increasing the multiplier in comparison to buy price are: Sturdy Bone, Barbed Tail, Vibrant Ooze, Otherworldly Bone, Diabolic Tail, and Transparent Ooze.

The following table shows how the multiplier value adds up to the Exp bonus.

Rank, the fourth table attribute, indicates how high a weapon must be before the component may be used and availability indicates where you can buy an item. If the location is blank then the item is rare.

Organic Components

The first table consists of the organic components. The multipliers will all be positive. The only purchasable items are located at Creature Comforts or R&D Depot. The other locations are monsters or minigames. Any location that is a dash can only be found by alternative means, example: treasure chest.

Mechanical Components

Mechanical Components are best for increasing exp/level of accessories and weapons. The multipliers are all negative so they are best used when the multiplier is maxed out to 3x by organic components and then using a large number of a single mechanical component.
