While you're out at Withering Plains, make sure to get a River Water. And when you go to Searing Wastes, be sure to drop by the Slag Graveyard to fetch Black Water.
Plus -- Avoid the hell out of the Thirsty Water God at Withering Plains. It's a level 100 monstrosity you aren't ready for.
- Searing Wastes
- You'll have to visit it in two chunks thanks to the plot.
- You should absolutely have a Heavenly Spirits before going back; it instant-warps you back to the Atelier.
In the Apple House, you'll get a plot-related event with Clone. You'll be seeing a series of Bumblebee Princess events. The Apple Orchard event is also plot-related, and you get SP Fertilizer.
After visiting the new area, Wilbell directs you back after making the Flight Gas Jar (you need Buoyant Gas from the wastes to make it). You'll need to visit a new area in the Wastes... to basically be kicked out again by the Fire LOOOORD. After consulting Wilbell *again* for the Element Core recipe, you can progress that part of the plot.
After you visit Withering Plains, you can enter the well at Village Well. Do so for a Lithograph Piece and document.
From now on, if you have an idle moment, make a Mystery Lantern. You need to reduce its equip cost to one slot (the wind skill, Compress, will do this), and preferably increase its uses as much as possible AND you want the best effect. You'll want about 20 uses, in total, for high end synthesis.
As for Plant Nutrients (I dearly want to call it a Tonic, thanks to older games), make your first one crappy as you like. But for your personal use, make one with the best effect, and as many uses as you can cram on it. Using Plant Nutrients allows you to gather rare items. Combined with "Check rare materials", you'll be gathering "max" level items that are typically hidden to you.
You should be about at Alchemy level 37 at the moment. Once there, you've reached your final skill (Reset Attribute). Any others must be bought from Marion as experiments.
You do have a boss fight at the Slag Graveyard waiting for you. It isn't much trouble though, especially not after making Titan Hammer, and Eis Ice Bomb, among others.
You will be able to make the Flight Gas Jar after going to Searing Wastes. You are encouraged to do this, as you get a trophy (Future Dreams) and the Double Draw ability, which is totally awesome to use in battle (just try it out, and be sure to get the damage rate over 200%).
Anyway. DO NOT LEAVE COLSEIT. Honestly, I never got Awin's events to disappear in my own testing. But be cautious. View his events before wandering off, and you might as well stick around for the other plot events.Failure to comply may result in missing an entire dungeon.
The following are less about the properties (I leave that to you) and more about the effects.
- Eis Ice Bomb
- This requires disassembling a Demon Eye from Searing Wastes for an SP Neutralizer. You will need all of your traits to be on a Ice Bomb.
- Ingredients: Water Crystal, Ice Bomb, Bubbling Water (mainly for Earth skills; feel free to modify), SP Neutralizer
- Toss in everything but your Ice Bomb.
- Use Conversion LV1 on Fire, then Power+ LV1 on Ice Bomb. Use Crafting Help LV2 on Ice Bomb, then Conversion LV2 to Wind.
- Toss in your Ice Bomb, then use Perfect Division to toss it in again.
- Use Conversion LV3 to Wind, then use Division on Ice Bomb.
- Finally, use Reset Attribute on Water.
- And now you've seen why Reset Attribute is useful. Enjoy your Bomb.
- Keep Super Destructive, Endow Cold, and Count Boost or whatever you like.
Yes, this item takes your MP. There's no avoiding it.
Titan Hammer - Zero wind. Lots of water and fire. I used Purple Crystal, Iron Plate, Antique Moss and Slag Memory. With Power+ LV1 on the Slag Memory. That should be all you need to get started.
