Cubics is a system which allows players to permanently boost their attributes. Introduced in the 6.2 update, it can be accessed by opening the Menu and selecting the "Cubic" option. While the only way to farm the necessary items is strictly exclusive to players of level 80, its benefits are available to players of any level.
The stat boosts from cubics affect all characters on the same account, making them particularly useful to players who play multiple characters. After the 7.0 update the benefits are limited to characters on the same account on the same server.
The system is fairly straightforward. There are different categories for every Cubic, determined by the attribute said Cubic boosts. Each category is divided in three rarities; Bronze, Silver and Golden. These add to the category's respective stat in greater or lesser amounts.
In order to enhance the character's attributes, the player needs to be in possession of a specific Cubicle. Cubicles are items required for the process. Every Cubicle has a certain rarity and category assigned, indicated on their name.
Cubicles are registered from the Cubic window. In order to activate their effect (the stat boost), the level indicated with a blue text and tag "[In progress]" must be fulfilled by filling the bar for that stage. Once the bar is filled, the level/stage will be completed, and the effect is active. Then they may proceed with the following level, all the way to the highest one for that Cubic rarity. By registering Cubicles, the bar fills up, each Cubicle being worth one point.
The effect of a Cubic is automatically added to every character within the same account, regardless of server, level or faction when activated. The effect is permanent, without any kind of limitation. All effects from every level from every Cubic stack. For example, while having a Silver Griffon's Wisdom Cubic with the first two levels completed (Magic Attack +32 and Magic Attack +46), the player will receive a final stat boost of Magical Attack +78. Different rarities for Cubics also stack, such as having the previously mentioned Silver Griffon's Wisdom Cubic giving Magical Attack +78 and a Golden Griffon's Wisdom Cubic giving Magical Attack +33, resulting in the sum of both (Magical Attack +111).

Cubicle Acquisition Edit
General Cubicles Edit
The main source for Cubicles is running Qubrinerk's Cubic Lab, a solo instance for level 80 players and above, only accessible form Lakrum. Upon completing the instance, a Survivalist's Cube, a Defender's Cube and an Aggressor's Cube will appear, looted for random Cubicles of varying rarities. A 4th bonus cube of a random type may be available if , a bonus NPC, spawned during the run.
Another viable source for Cubicles is open world activities in Lakrum. All across the region there are named mobs which drop Cucibles in bundles:
- Bronze Cubicles are dropped from elite-grade monsters with the "<Leader>" tag, in a stack of 1.
- Silver Cubicles are dropped from hero-grade monsters (named mini-bosses), in a stack of 3. When these monsters spawn their location will be shown on the map.
- Golden Cubicles are dropped by Lakrum's field boss, , in a stack of 10.
Ereshkigal Cubicles Edit
- Main article: Pandora Agency
The only source of Ereshkigal Cubicles are weekly quests related to the Pandora Agency. These quests require the player to take part in the Enshar/Cygnea infiltration and reach the end goal. Only Bronze Ereshkigal Cubicles can be obtained. Silver and Gold must be unlocked through Cubicle Exchange.
Cubicle Exchange Edit
Eventually players will find themselves with Cubicles they no longer have use for. For such cases, an exchange NPC was put in place in Lakrum so that useless Cubicles can be exchanged for more useful ones. This is exchange is limited to rarity. Meaning, while Bronze ones can be exchanged for Silver ones and Silver ones for Golden ones, exchanges between, for instance, Lunacy and Wisdom Cubicles, is not possible.
The introductory questline to this feature is started by talking with Qubrinerk in Devastated Coast, south of Lakrum. The first quest is Qubrinerk's Request for Help [?], requesting the player to kill mobs attacking her mercenaries in the nearby areas. Completing this quest will unlock the quest [Instance Dungeon] Reclaim Qubrinerk's Cubic Lab [?], requiring a successful run through Qubrinerk's Cubic Lab.
Upon completion, the tutorial quest becomes available; [Tutorial] Using Cubics [?].
