I. Component boosters.
These are probably the most useful (and powerful) items in the game,
components themselves give very little bonuses but these can change all that.

How they work
Doubles the effect of all select components added to the item at the same time,
but it will not double the effect of already installed components!
Example

Green soul shard Adds 1-3 earth elemental damage, (not very good basically)
Add 1 silver ingot (to the existing NON-installed component)
Then click proceed
The item should now have 2-6 earth elemental damage.
Much better donít you think? But still low,
So lets take this a step further.

In a new item I use
3 Green soul shards
2 silver ingots
And Click proceed
And low and behold the item is a fine 9-36 earth elemental damage,
or something to that effect,
For advanced component building see the advanced component building section


I. Component booster items.

Quartz
Takes 2 slots

Mercury globe

Silver ingot

Sulphur
Takes 4 slots

Sliver kenjya stone
Takes 4 slots

Gold kenjya stone
Takes 4 slots
Affects Earth, fire, water, lightning, components

Sappier kenjya stone
Takes 4 slots
Affects Water, lightning, components

Steel kenjya stone
Takes 4 slots
Affects Fire, earth,lightning, components

Sulphur kenjya stone
Takes 4 slots

Cinnabar kenjya stone

I. advanced component building

Now that we have the basics letís look at the kenjya stones,
theses allow very powerful items at the lowest slot cost;
basically they allow multiple components to be boosted at the same time.
Example

1 Patience of Buddha
1 Soul of Buddha
1 Blood of Buddha
1 Tears of Buddha
1 Gold kenjya stone

Click proceed
Now you have a fine set of armour, 50% resist all,
it is as if you have used 2 sets Buddha drops,
But

1 Patience of Buddha
1 Soul of Buddha
1 Blood of Buddha
1 Tears of Buddha
2 Gold kenjya stone
Click proceed

If this was used it would produce a massive 75% resist all,
and would be far more space efficient,
and with rare items like the Buddha drops, this is a must.


I. Special component combinations:

Saitou Hajime has brought this to my attention from the gamefaq boards
Basically, certain groups of items create special affects,
you will know if you have one of these combinations because a small symbol will appear on each of the components

Pearl + kappa claw + Oni's fangs 		+1 to water skills
Spider Witch + Cho Gokin Ore + Tengu feathers 	+1 to lightning spells
Yammu Inu Blood + Coral + Kappa Blood 		+1 to fire skills

this will add 1+ to all water skills however the component effects are removed
Note: component boosters will not work with combinations,
If you know of any more feel free to contact me
