.

READ Before You Start

Since the game requires you to play through the game at least once, to recruit Gio and therefore get all ending and the Platinum, I will NOT be covering a first playthrough. That being said, for the most part this guide can be followed for a first playthrough, with only certain events being too difficult without NG+ gear. If you are using this as a first playthrough guide, save before visiting any new location and make sure to constantly check for new development equipment like the ones listed below and make them ASAP.

NG+ Requirements

Before you finish your first playthrough you should have done the following:

  • Make all of Meruru's Development Equipment
    • Handmade Basket
    • Blessed Coin
    • Fate Talisman
    • Flying Carpet
    • Goddess Statue
    • Harvest Glove
    • Secret Bag
    • Traveler Shoes

.

  • Made the best equipment for your characters (see below)
    • The only addition that is not listed below is at least 3 Speed Belts for whoever is in your party. You want these on Keina, Lias, and Meruru at game end.

.

SAVE BEFORE DOING ANY OF THIS AND DO NOT SAVE UNTIL YOU COMPLETE A WHOLE INGOT

To make the best weapons in the game you will need Regentium. Due to the extreme Cost Level needed for the traits in this game, we have to do a bit of a work around.

.

Firstly, create 2 TYPES of Regentium (Regentium #1 and Regentium #2)

.

Regentium #1

Make Regentium x2 w/ Rainbow Power and Diety Power

Item OutcomeIngredient 1Ingredient 2
Regentium w/ Rainbow Power and Diety PowerRainbow Fragment(Fuel) #1

Rainbow Fragments can be found in Modis Ruins by the Homs or at the final gathering point in the area (past the Dragon fight).

Item OutcomeIngredient 1Ingredient 2
Regentium w/ Master Skill & Skill BoostRainbow Fragment(Fuel) #3

(Fuel) #3

Make Pure Oil x2 w/ Maximize

Item OutcomeIngredient 1Ingredient 2
Pure Oil w/ Maximize(Fuel) #2Distill Stone

Make sure you register this so that we always have it for future use. It is a GREAT [Fuel] item.


(Fuel) #4

Make Pure Oil x3 w/ Master Skill

Item OutcomeIngredient 1Ingredient 2
Pure Oil w/ Master SkillSky Flame #1Distill Stone
Sky Flame #2Distill Stone
(Fuel) #3Distill Stone
  • Use the Cost Level from (Fuel) #3 to purchase Master Skill. You will not be able to purchase Maximize as well.

Sky Flame #1

Make Sky Flame x2 w/ Skill Boost and use an Expand Supplement for Cost Level

Item OutcomeIngredient 1Ingredient 2Ingredient 3Ingredient 4

Item OutcomeIngredient 1Ingredient 2Ingredient 3Ingredient 4
Sky Flame w/ Skill ChargeSpirit PyroxeneChain WebFuel DirtSupplement #6

Supplement #6

Make Supplement x5 w/ Skill Boost

Trait OutcomeTrait 1Trait 2
Skill ChargeSkill +15%Skill +10%

.

Take the 2 TYPES of Regentium to Hagel and make a Mereru's New World Staff weapon with one of each TYPE and select the 4 traits:

  • Rainbow Power
  • Diety Power
  • Master Skill
  • Skill Boost

Now, Disassemble the staff to get 1 Regentium with ALL these traits. Register this at Pamela's to buy and make everyone's weapons with.

You actually have room for a 5th trait, but what you choose is up to you.

With the Maximize Pure Oil as one [Fuel] and any other [Fuel] with the trait you want, you can create another Regentium with a 5th trait by using the same method as above (using 2 different Regentium and combining/disassembling them into one Regentium).

.

Ultimate Armor Crafting

To make the best armor in the game you will need Medical Thread and some decent Cost Level items.

The primary place where we get traits is in the [Liquid] spot. Because you may have different items with different traits, I am going to simply note what can be used as [Liquid] and what traits you need to get.

Here is the traits you want to go for:

  • Life Guard
    • HP Boost
    • HP Charge
  • Defender
    • Defense Boost
    • Defense Charge
  • HP Boost
  • Lightweight

.

The following are the 2 items that you want to try and get these traits on to make the Medical Linen with:

It is worth making a Magic Paint from a Rainbow Oil that uses the Pure Oil with Maximize that we made when we created weapons. This will be in your Medical Linen final synth for Cost Level.

The GREAT thing about Magic Paint is that it can be used as an ingredient for itself.

  • Liquid Solvent
    • Tar Liquid
    • Supplement

You can make as many of the individual [Liquid] items you need to get all the traits, but the more separate [Liquid] items, the more [Cloth] you will have to make. Remember that you can make 2 DIFFERENT types of [Cloth] and combine them the same way we did with weapons.

.

GENERAL TIPS

1) Shops and Requests are renewed on the 1st, 11st and 21st every month. Check back everytime one passed.

2) Friendship increases as you travel on the World Map, but caps at 60.

.

Rank I: Pluto



Arls Kingdom



You have the option to skip the opening. You won't miss anything except the Healing Salve if you do.

You should also unequip the Speed Belt from Meruru so that she always goes last and therefore you will rarely be losing time on the field for combat.

Once the intro is over head to the Tavern on Namiki Street and meet Filly Dee.

Talk to Rufus to set up the games objective and get the first development:

Moyori Forest I - Catering

  • Deliver a Homemade Pie to fill a stomach.
    • Requirement: 1
    • Points: 40 pts.
    • Bonus: Popularity Up

.

Head back to the atelier for a scene and your first recipe book.

NEW RECIPE NOTICE

.

You will now be able to make the Homemade Pie for the soldier.

Always make the maximum items you can in 1 day. This will save you time, as you will always need more items later. For example: You can make 2 Homemade Pie in 1 day. This is better than making 1 now and then another later when you need it and spend another day.

On a side note, unlike previous games in this series the LP, MP, and HP do not naturally restore as you travel. This means you will need to sleep on the couch more than you have in previous games.

  • You can examine the boxes under the tree on Namiki Street for a scene about Hanna.
  • You can examine the Throne Room door to see Meruru's reaction to facing her father after getting your first task from Rufus.

.



Moyori Forest



If you are wondering what a new area has in terms of enemies and materials, please click the name of the area listed above.

REMINDERS

Like Atelier Totori, everything you do on a field takes up time. This means gathering and fighting time should be considered when you are close to any timed events.

There are 10 small sections to the timer in the upper left of the screen. This is your time left in the day.

It takes 4 to gather a spot, but you can look and not gather and lose no time.
It takes 1 to fight a battle, if Meruru gets a turn (longer battles can take even more time).
It takes 1 if you run from a battle (only if Meruru had a turn).

What I mean when I say, if Meruru got a turn, is that turns are counted based on Meruru's actions. This means if she doesn't get an action 0 turns have passed and you will lose no time for the battle (completed or not). What does this mean? It means that you can run anytime Meruru doesn't start a battle. Why? Because there is a development for running from 20 battles. There is also a development for starting the battle via her swing, so you should either start a battle with a swing or run away (of course running can fail and sometimes completing the battle is just better).

When you leave the fields the day will automatically change no matter how much time is left on the red bar. This means you want to leave a field just before the indicator is empty so you use up the full day versus leaving when it's nearly full.

Talk to the soldier nearby and give him the Homemade Pie.

.

When you have control again, you can roam around the forest and clear out all the enemies (ignore the gathering points since they are horrible).

It is probably best to NOT have Meruru swing her staff and low level mobs so that you can take out all the enemies in one hit with Lias or Keina and save time by not having Meruru take a turn. The exception to this is when you need to use items for development points. In this case you will want to swing the staff to get her first to use the items before the enemies die.

As you leave another scene will trigger.

.



Arls Kingdom



Head to the Study and talk to Rufus to get the next development.

Moyori Forest II - Cutting the Grass

  • Help cut the grass in Moyori Forest.
    • Requirement: Gather Plain Grass
    • Points: 40 pts.
    • Bonus: Weeding Complete

.

After viewing the Building Facilities tutorial, choose to develop either building (although I suggest the Academy).

See Facilities Bonus to help determine what you'd like to build in what order. You CAN build more than 1 building at a time.

After the scenes, you will now have 3 years to gain 30,000 new townspeople. Our goal for year 1 is simply 5,000.

NEW RECIPE NOTICE

.

Keina's Events: Friendship 20+, at the Castle a scene with Keina cleaning will occur.

Now, head to the Tavern for a scene and gain access to Front Quests.

I won't always tell you when to accept quests, only suggest them sometimes. You should always check to see if there are easy items to turn in or monsters in the location you are planning to go gathering at soon. Basically, don't go out of your way to do a quest unless you have time or it is on your way.

Sometimes you may already have the items to fill a quest. In that case, select Report Now to turn it in straight away. These are always great because you won't have to waste any time. Note that sometimes you can buy the items from the merchants and turn then in for more money (such as Nuse).

Also note that an item with 1 charge is just as good as one with 2 or more. Why is this important? Well sometimes you can use an item down to the last charge, like Migraine Syrup or Nectar, before turning it in for the same value. This uses your items to their max potential.

.



Moyori Forest



Focus on clearing the development quest by gathering Plain Grass.

In New Game+ you will level up really fast if you clear out enemies without losing any time on the clock (using the strategy of not swinging and having no Speed Belt on Meruru). Although I don't say it, you should always clear out most of the enemies in an area before gathering, turning in development items, etc.

Turning in development items will usually respawn all enemies and allow you to get even more EXP.

When you clear enough gathering points, you will actually clear out the enemies on the map as well. Gather some new items (get Eiche x6 - the tree on the upper level and by the guard always gives 2-3) and then head back to Arls.

.
