    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
    Effects water components
    
    Mercury globe
    Takes 2 slots
    Effects lightning components
    
    Silver ingot
    Takes 2 slots
    Affects earth components
    
    Sulphur
    Takes 4 slots
    Affects fire components
    
    Sliver kenjya stone
    Takes 4 slots
    Affects lightning, earth, components
    
    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
    Affects Fire, earth, components
    
    Cinnabar kenjya stone
    Takes 4 slots
    Affects Fire, water, components
    
    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
