Part 53: The Alchemy Hour of PowerWe had a bit of work to do to prepare for our assault on the mysterious object.
Professor Feinnes Alchemy 400: Graduate Level Alchemy
Lets start with the easy stuff, normal items we just got the ability to make. Im actually going to go through the supply chain to help make things make more sense.
Aroma Materials are probably the most difficult item that is a relatively common component to produce. It takes a Brilliant Stone, a Pentagle, one of the three accessories that greatly improves a resistance, and one of a number of high-end plants including Tercia Pollen and Dunkelhite. Theyre a good reason to have been making Pentagles with the Task Sheet for one, because otherwise Pentagles are kind of a pain. The high-end resistance items are all complicated as well, Fires of Hell is probably the best because you can buy more components for it than the others. This would be a good item to give people if it werent so hard to make and commonly used in the rest of this update.
Azoth Z has a set recipe, Jade Tablet, Dragon Tongue, Aroma Material, and Dunkelhite. Everything but the Aroma Material is pretty simple, two are gathered items and the Tablet is just a bit annoying, which is why I made some with the Task Sheet earlier.
We saw this a while ago when we made the Alchemy Robe. It requires an Altena Ingot, which is easy, an Aroma Material, which sort of sucks as noted above, and either an Imperial Cloth or an Alchemy Robe. I do it with an Imperial Cloth here but looking at the whole supply chain of both Id suggest Alchemy Robe, because most of its components can be purchased. Were going to need two of these, so doing them efficiently is helpful.
Crown Breastplate is refreshingly easy, just takes one of the other four higher end heavy armors, an Altena Ingot, and a crown themed item (basically any item with King or Queen in the name). Thats the last of our easy items, though. Lets move to the unique armors.
This is the recipe for Vaynes Bleak Veil. Everything here but the Fallen Wing is pretty annoying to synthesize for one reason or another. Gold Mail uses a Gold Bullion, which is inherently going to add difficulty if you havent been making them with the Task Sheet. Stellar Globe is also tough, it uses a Pot Station and Globe as major components. Pot Station in turn requires several of Muppys other pots, so this is a very complex synthesis at least. Symbol of Uroborus requires a Giants Ring, again ideally you made a few early on with the Task Sheet. If not, dont worry too much. While the Symbol is complex, its not actually very difficult to make with respect to rare materials.
This is the recipe for Flays Gallant Mantle. Its the easiest to produce by far. Gangster is an older armor that we probably have lying around still from making it, Altena Ingots are straightforward, and you should probably have a Tera Flame or two around. That just leaves Megingjorz, which do require some complicated items like one of Vaynes higher end collars if youve not made any with the Task Sheet. Still, only one annoying component is a plus.
This is the recipe for Roxis Grand Alchemist. Half of it is very easy, you can buy most of the components for Philosophers Hand and Glasses of Death and anything you cant buy is common and low-end. On the other hand, it also takes a Saints Garb (and therefore an Aroma Material) and a Shining Grail, which is relatively difficult to make. Still, its not nearly as bad as Vaynes was.
This is the recipe for Jess Biohair Wig. Uni God is a bit complicated, since it requires a Pentagle, and Aurora Curtain can be quite a pain since it requires a Dragonscale Garb to make. The Garb, in turn, requires a Symbol of Uroborus and a Dragon Scale as well as some cloth and another dragon component. I hate to keep saying this but some of these real pain in the ass things are just something you need to anticipate needing a few of and making with the Task Sheet earlier, I did that with the Aurora Curtain and Dragonscale Garb once each or so and it served me well.
Nikkis Holy Beast Hide is another one saddled with an absolutely brutal single ingredient, the Angel Cloth. The major component of this is the Archangel Wings, which you should have been making with the Task Sheet since forever ago at this point because theyre awesome and hard to make. The rest of it would be a pain if it werent made of things that are really obvious choices for the Task Sheet early in the game, but hopefully you should have lots of things like Angel Wings and Winged Boots around. Bunny Ears are complex but made out of a lot of very basic components if you dont have one lying around.
This is the recipe for Annas Knights Waistcoat. It requires a lot of things which can be very complex if youre not prepared for them. Of course theres a Symbol of Uroborus, which weve talked about, and a Feathery Flow. Maiden requires another Feathery Flow or a Heavens Silk, which is probably slightly easier since its main components are an Angels Wing and Misty Curtain. Maiden also requires an Aurora Curtain, which we again mentioned earlier as a pain. Still, if we have the components prepared ahead of time this can actually be one of the easier ones.
This is the recipe for Pamelas Robe of Life. Right off the bat note the Saints Garb and again Aroma Material that requires. Beyond that its actually pretty simple, Formell is easy to make, you should have Elixirs around, and Trauer Tarot is a bit complicated but requires mainly things you can buy from the various stores. If not for the Saints Garb this might be as easy as Flays armor.
Heres our last ultimate armor, Muppys Rejuvenator Skin. Three quarters of it is a total joke, Elixirs you should have in surplus, Blood Clay is very easy to make, and any water is as easy as going to your workshop tap. It takes one of the three high end elemental resistance accessories, Id suggest the Fires of Hell because its easiest to make. If youve got a Fires of Hell that didnt become an Aroma Material this is possibly even easier than Flays.
