The event list, again, assumes Threia first.
If you haven't already, be sure to buy the bigger basket from Marion. You may even consider upgrading twice, if you can afford it after recipes. Search Wisdom is something you want down the line, but Marching Skills is more or less a luxury you don't seriously need, as air travel is a bigger part of the game than land.
After returning from the village, you'll get Reyfer/Threia in your party. You may put Awin in the rear, now, which is basically where he should be most of the game.
You'll get a scene and trophy at the Atelier. Logy will be a clean freak (Scars of the Past, and can I just say YEEESSSS), and Escha will be stuffing her face (Big Eater).
You can finally make the second tier of equipment. Check out the Property List of all your weapons; at least one of your two weapons for each character will have both Attack Power 3 and 6. These will combine into Attack Reinforce. You want that.
Another thing. Both Leather and Multi-patch have Defense +3 and Defense +6 for Defense Reinforce. You will need to experiment to see how you can get the appropriate Property Level for both. You can transfer this to a Mixed Lubricant for an Alloy Plate and it's easily placed on a Cotton Shirt to create a Sturdy Shirt.Finally, when you create armor, keep the Wind/Fire/Water/Earth Resist properties as you see them. One of each is fine. You'll thank me later.
Honestly, with the items I already told you about, you don't need anything else awesome. But it isn't a huge stretch to make these mediocre things:
- To make a Lightning Bomb with Super Destructive, make a Capactive Paper using a Distilled Water.
- To make a Living Bomb, probably make Polished Crystal using that Distilled Water.
After finishing the assignment, Marion will give you the Dismantler. This allows you to do two important things.
- You can break apart relics you find into material items. You cannot get these material items through any other means.
- In some cases, you get a recipe for the item you're breaking apart.
