Weapon Synthing and stuff

Postby Prinny » Fri Feb 05, 2010 7:51 am

I'm now on the third layer, about to enter the third dungeon...and I have yet to really be able to synth much stuff for anyone. I've overkilled everything (99.9%) I've come across and gotten a ton of items, but none of them seem to be anywhere near what I need to synth even the second round of weapons...
Is there something I'm missing somewhere? lol I really don't get it. I've resorted to just stealing weapons from people who enter my party if they'll match whoever I'm using lol..

Sometimes, you need to synth things that you already have and then break them down to get a new ingredient, which may be required in a recipe for something new. Also, don't forget to spend your TP on recopies in May's shop.

Most of the recipes may require advancing or synthesizing old stuff. You might as well just use your TP to buy stuff from the Database since those are more useful than the ones in your synthesis list at the moment.

Yeah that's pretty much it. Level it to 5, break it down, rinse, repeat. For this reason, I tried to keep five of anything that I had enough ingredient access to mass produce, in case I needed to break it down later.

Also, you can see what items break down into by cycling through its stat screens. I don't have access to the game at the moment, but if you press a button (R1 maybe?) you will cycle through its stat screens. One of them is what that item will break down into.

I had a stack of sticky notes with what things break down into when i played this game. It helped reduce the research part of item grinding. You might find this in a gamefaqs posting as well.

Yeah I looked at gamefaqs and theres plenty to be had lol. I just figured it would be easier to ask people who know instead of reading a wall of text. (Read enough of those lately)

Maybe sticky notes or a notebook isn't a bad idea lol.
Time to go bust up some items!

If you press L2 you'll usually see what the item will become before you upgrade and convert it. It can be pretty handy to convert things like power rings so that you can get stat boost items as well if you're not already doing that.

I can't remember what its called, but using monster items to strengthen your current weapons is also pretty handy too.

Yeah I was curious about the whole "adding things" when you convert stuff.

And yeah I did start doing the rings and stuff... I'm just finding out that I'm going to be forced into using anyone I don't want to, so I'm like GAH!

You can use the Composite option to add composite items to your weapon, making them stronger. Each composite item takes up GP (grade points), but they add certain stats to your weapon. To obtain more composite items, you can Overkill enemies, find them in souls or treasure chests.

I was referring to that extra box that comes up when you go to convert a lv 5 item under the upgrade section :O

But good tips nonetheless lol

I wasn't really replying to that one, but I also noticed I posted in the wrong thread.

Each complex on GP register, but they add some start your weapons. The more you compound the problems that may be necessary. You can use the option to add products to your composite composite weapons, making them stronger.
