Part 47: The Final CoursesWe made a few new items before classes started.
Since Ms. Isolde was still missing, the Vice Principal was offering a course.

She certainly wasnt going to hold our hands on this one.
For you, it is the final term before graduation.
Dont waste what youve learned until now and get yourselves in shape.
Students: Yes, Vice Principal.
And now I present you with todays Assignment.
You will investigate the Mana Ruins, then read and solve the emblem there.
There you will find three emblems that support the entire school.
Use this information to theorize what each one does.
When youre done with the investigation, come report to me directly.
Analyzing an emblem Sounds pretty hard.
Yeah, but we wont know until we actually see it so Lets go.
Professor Feinnes Alchemy 300: Symbology II
This is not a hands-holding Assignment. The game does not spell out what the emblems do, it just gives you a vague description and expects you to figure it out from the choices it gives later. Its still not that hard, though.
The first emblem was relatively simple.
Oooh. So? Do you understand it, Nikki?
Umm. Im not good with this stuff
Let me see.
This emblems the type to always be active
Its controlling a Wind Mana to move something Its pretty complicated.
Umm Well, lets look or another emblem.
The second was a bit more complex.
Flaya, you should try to analyze it yourself.
Hmph. Its far too simple of a symbol for me to look at.
The shape is a basic emblem. It amplifies a Manas power
But, its range of effect is pretty far
Hmm Either way, lets look for another emblem.
We found the last one deep inside, and it was the oldest and most complicated of the three.
Its too difficult for me to understand
Vayne, look at it for her.
Ive never seen this formula before I think its sealing something.
Yeah Sorry. Its too hard, even for me. I dont get it
Alright But weve finished looking at all the emblems now.
Okay, lets go report this to the Vice Principal.
She wasnt there when we got back, so Jess and I got to talking.
Huh? Oh thats
Our encounter is a tale of tears for everyone.
I will never forget It was a breath freezing, cold night
I lay in a box, forsaken by my former master, about to draw my last breath
And the girl who happened to walk by was
So you were abandoned?
Of course not! Vayne, dont just believe everything she says!
S-sorry Then what was it really like?
Can I tell him?
Well, I dont mind
When I was small, I heard of Mana and I told myself I have to meet one.
And so I went to the nearest forest to catch one with an insect net.
So stupid. No way would you actually be able to catch a Mana like that.
I would say the same if I think about it now, too But, I caught one.
I see, you got caught
N-no I didnt! I felt bad for Jess so I purposely got caught by her!
Yes. Thats what we tell everyone.
Hahaha Well, in the end, at least you get along with each other.
When the Vice Principal came back she was surprised we were able to get back so quickly.
Oh, well that was fast.
Then can you tell me what the emblems purposes are?
Vayne, I leave it to you!
One was constantly active, and controls a Wind Mana to move something
I figured that had to be the emblem that actually keeps the Winds Corridor regulated.
Another was a basic emblem that amplifies Mana power over a wide range
The second was harder but I figured it could just be as simple as making Mana more powerful at Al-Revis.
The last, Ive never seen before, but something was sealed inside
Given where we were, there was only one thing that could be sealed there...
Exactly. Perfect. The first emblem keeps the campus afloat.
The second makes the Mana on campus more active.
The last one seals the Mana within the Ruins
Good job, Vayne!
I have nothing to complain about here. Now, take out your Student Handbooks.
We were hoping that Ms. Melanie would have an easier Assignment than Ms. Isoldes had been for Synthesis.

Turns out that wasnt the case.
Though, you shouldve learned everything by now, so
Ill just give you a super difficult Assignment.
I will have you all make an Elixir for me.
It has the oldest history in alchemy, yet remains a very high level medicine.
If you can make it, Ill acknowledge you as a professional alchemist.
An Elixir, huh? I think we have to depend on Jess accidental miracle for it.
Oh please. A miracle? Ill do my best!
Um, Jess, I dont think that was a compliment
Of course, you will have to find the recipe and ingredients on your own.
But, Im sure there will be some of you who wont be able to make it
In that case, tell Student Affairs you give up. But, you wont get any units.
Thats it for class. Good luck, everyone.
Elixirs are definitely one of the more difficult Syntheses we have access to.
Yeah. But if we can, were professional alchemists. So, lets do our best!
Yeah. Lets try finding the ingredients first.
Professor Feinnes Alchemy 300: Synthesis IX
So, Elixir has a set recipe of Super Nectar, X Heal, Dunkelhite, and Shinke Onion. Two we make and two are gathered. To get an A on this we need to reach Ether Level 100, and because Dunkelhite and Shinke Onion are both Ether Level 10 it can be tricky to reach that level without some good Support Cards. If you can get Annas +50% that pretty much does it all on its own, and of course if youve got Roxis Auto-Synthesis that is an automatic +40 from him picking the right element each time. Just go with whatever youve got, its not that bad.
We did the best we could, and managed to get an A this time around.
Excuse me, Im here to turn in my Synthesis Assignment.
The Elixir, correct? Well, good job.
But, there are others who turned it in as well
So your grade will depend on the Ether Effect.
Please take out your Student Handbooks.
Our last Assignment of the term I should be happy, but without classes to distract me now Ive got time to properly worry about things. I know Sulpher and Ms. Isolde arent telling me something, I just wish I knew what it was
