Watch the Story Unfold
Um, hello. Max told me that you can help us repair our ship
Hes been like this for a long time.
I think wed better find ourselves another blacksmith
We have no other choice
But as they turned to leave, Hagel turned and realized that his long search was over.
That sword at your hip, is it the Azoth?!
How do you know about this sword?
Come on now. Swords are my life. Dont tell me you didnt know that!
Youll let me see it, right?
Alchemy Creating somthin from nuttin. One of the dark arts.
The Azoth was forged from the essence of alchemy.
It can topple mountains and part the sea The sword of legends.
Does it really have that much power?
If it doesnt, its way overrated in the legends.
Anyway, man, Im beggin ya! Lemme get a good look at that sword.
I dont see why not
However, the Azoth itself had something to say on the matter.
It it spoke!
Azure Azoth: I do not perform at birthday parties for the amusement of infants and blacksmiths.
As lowly as an alchemist as you are, you should still know that already.
Look, without his help, well never get to Altena Church.
I promise, Ill do anything you want me to. Just let me hold the sword.
Haha! Ive finally touched the legendary Azoth!
Hooah, hoah, oh thats nice
Azure Azoth: Errr
Such an elegant blade A wealth of history in the hilt Its perfect!
I bet it even tastes perfect!
Azure Azoth: Thats quite enough. If he persists stab him.
Okay, okay. Stop!
Havent you seen it enough?
I could stare at this thing forever.
You made us a promise. Now, please follow us.
As they left for Agito Cove, Viese was speaking to the shopkeeper Yach outside of the workshop.
I have a favor to ask you. Would you mind doing it for me?
Ill give you the recipe for an item called Flay Hammer.
Well, it depends on the favor
I heard you can make Wonder Grow. Can you make like 10 of them for me?
10?! What do you need them for?
Uhh No reason.
? So, you want 10 of them, right?
Yes. 10 should do nicely. So, will you make them?
Okay, Ill do it.
Thank you! Here, Ill even pay you in advance.
System Message: Received [Blacksmith 101]!
You now have the recipe for [Flay Hammer]!
Hey, w, wait!
Too late. I guess I have to do it now. 10 Wonder Grows
Viese quickly whipped up the Wonder Grows, and when Yach came by later she was ready.
10 Wonder Grows, right? I made them already.
You did? Youre amazing, Viese.
Here you are.
System Message: Handed over 10 [Wonder Grows].
Thank you. I knew I could count on you.
So, what do you need these for, anyway?
Heh Do you promise to keep it a secret?
Yes, I promise.
Well, as you know, many parts of Eden were destroyed by the quake.
I want to plant some things in the abandoned parts of Eden.
So I need some Wonder Grows to help them grow quickly.
Thats great! That should really help out around here.
Well, I found some seeds in my stores inventory, but I dont know what kind of plants they are.
So, I thought Id plant them instead of throwing them away.
Well, see you!
He also swung around after she made the Flay Hammer.
Hi Yach. Whats going on?
I was thinking about what I have for sale, and I wanted to add new items to sell.
Then I thought, Hey, maybe Viese has something I can sell. So, uh, do you?
Well, I dont think so
Hey, that hammer
Its the Flay Hammer. I made it from the recipe that you gave me.
I thought it looked familiar. So, what does it do anyway?
Ive had the recipe for a long time, but I never found out what it does.
You can use it to break open rocks.
But, some rocks are too hard for this hammer.
So the Flay Hammer isnt that useful after all.
But once the rocks are broken, you might be able to find precious gems inside.
A mining rush is always good for business.
Will you sell some Flay Hammers to me? Ill pay you for them.
Please I think 5 will be enough to start.
Okay, Ill do it. I just have to make them first.
Viese synthesized the hammers and then returned to Yach.
System Message: Handed over 5 [Flay Hammers].
Oh, thank you. Is this enough to cover them?
System Message: Received 800 Cole.
Ill try them out later.
Felt, back in Belkhyde, had reached Agito Cove with Hagel in tow.

Hey Max! Its been a long time! Keeping busy?
Thats great! So where are these broken parts that need fixin?
Oh, theyre in the back.
Alright then, lets get this over with.
Doesnt he look too happy to be crazy?
Hes been this way ever since Felt showed him the Azoth.
Huh? Is this all the work you needed me for?!
Ill have all this done in an hour
Wonderful! Will you proceed then?
Now, uh, Felt, our new mission is to rest until were ready to leave.
Can I talk to everyone else first ?
Felt asked Hagel how the repairs were going, which led to a bit of a work slowdown.
Its fine! Now that Ive taught them what to do!
Hey, why dont I teach you how to blacksmith?
Great, its settled. You know, blacksmithing is a lot like fencing.
Uh, Ive never heard that before
As the Master of the Azoth, it wouldnt hurt to know this.
And Im sure youll make an excellent blacksmith.
Come on, lets do this!
And so Felts training as a blacksmith began.
But, I never agreed to become a blacksm
Its been decided! Now, concentrate!
Focus your attention!
You know, Im a pretty good blacksmith trainer if I do say so myself!
Feinnes Fourth Wall Lectures: Weapon Synthesis
Weapon Synthesis behaves in many ways like normal Synthesis. In order to synthesize a new weapon, we need the item (always a Mana or Alchemy Item) and Mana required for it. There is another requirement that isnt in a normal synthesis, though. Each characters weapons come in a sequence, and we cant synthesize one until weve synthesized a weapon that directly comes before it. So if somehow weve got an item and Mana required for a later weapon before its forebears we arent allowed to jump ahead. Weapons have our usable Skills in them, so well use them for a while to learn those.
After this blacksmithing lesson, Hagel got back to work.

Excellent. What took you an hour wouldve taken us a month.
The proper way to show flattery is through song.
Um, so, uh, Fernando, tomorrows the big day!
Lets have a feast tonight to celebrate! Ill cook!
Thats a wonderful idea!
Hagel! I know youre tough, but come on!
Huh? Whattaya mean?
I hope yall are hungry!
Here, eat up
How is it, Felt?
Noin had also been at work it seems.
It smells burnt and doesnt have much taste
Trust me. Thats a good thing!
What does that mean?! You want to hear my hit single too?
System Message: Noin has joined the party!
The Dynasty Horn will take us to the eastern continent in no time.
Just let us know when youre ready.
And so they were prepared to head to the eastern continent and the Simsilt headquarters.
