===============================================================================
			
			I. PURPOSE [prp]

===============================================================================

Welcome! This FAQ will help you perfectionists to obtain a "perfect" amount of
synthesis items for your inventory. It is recommended that you use this guide
in conjunction with Atomos199's Excalibur II Perfect Game Guide, which covers
all aspects of a perfect game. 

This is not a general synthesis FAQ. If you have any general questions about 
synthesis or need to look up synthesis combinations, refer to shotgunnova's
general FAQ. 

===============================================================================
		
		II. DEFINITION OF A PERFECT AMOUNT [prf]

===============================================================================

(These definitions are taken from the Perfect Game Guide.) 

To have a perfect amount of equipment, you must have one piece of equipment 
for each character and an additional copy for the inventory. For instance, 
Steiner and Freya can equip the Grand Helm, so you need three Grand Helms for
a perfect inventory. Every character can equip the Power Belt, so nine Power
Belts are required for a perfect inventory. 

You need 99 copies of all consumable items, including gems.

If an item is only available in limited quantities, then you must obtain the 
maximum amount of the item. 

===============================================================================
			
		III. MISSABLE SYNTHESIS MATERIALS [mis]

===============================================================================


*If you've followed the Excalibur II Perfect Game Guide, you can skip this 
section* 

You should wait until Disc 4 to start working on your perfect inventory. 
While all of the synthesis items are available on Disc 4, some of the synthesis
materials can only be procured during the first three discs. 

The first amount shows how many materials you'll need  for a perfect amount of
synthesis items, while the second amount shows the materials you'll need for
a perfect amount of synthesis items and materials. You can obtain a few items
on Disc 4, but these materials can only be bought in bulk during the first 
three discs.

		VII. OBTAINING THE ITEMS [get]

===============================================================================

===============================================================================
		1. OBTAINING GIL [grd]
===============================================================================

The most efficient way to obtain gil is to grind on Adamantoises or Yans. 
Adamantoises are always found on Uhai Island (the island where you can access
Chocobo's Paradise) outside of the forests. The turtles are weak and give
4433 gil a pop. 

Yans are found on Vile Island. The Yan is the hardest regular enemy in the 
game, but each Yan gives plenty of experience and 2218 gil. As you can face
one to three Yans per battle, you will obtain 4436 gil on average. 

If your party is weak, then you'll want to fight Adamantoises. Otherwise, it's
recommended that you fight the Yans due to the massive experience. The most 
efficient way to kill Yans is to use a level 99 Dagger's Odin with 99 Ores in
the inventory, as it has around a 99% chance to cause instant death. 

If you use Quina's Millionaire ability to double your gil, it will take 362 
battles against Adamantoises or Yans (on average) to get enough gil for a 
perfect amount of synthesis items and 415 battles for a perfect inventory. 


There are other ways to obtain gil, but they aren't as efficient. You probably
know about the "Cotton Robe trick": you get a 610 gil profit by synthesizing
and selling a Cotton Robe, so a batch of 99 Cotton Robes nets a 60,390 gil
profit. However, you'll have to travel all over the Mist Continent to synth
and sell the Cotton Robes on Disc 4. 

The Gimme Cat gives 5000 gil; however, you'll receive significantly less gil
on average due to other enemies, so you're better off with the Yans and 
Adamantoises. 

===============================================================================
		2. OBTAINING OTHER ITEMS [oth]
===============================================================================

You can obtain an infinite amount of Ores by using Eiko's Jewel, which gives
one Ore per use. 

Before you start buying synthesis materials, you'll want to dig up all of the
Chocographs so that you can max out your Dead Peppers at Chocobo's Paradise. 

===============================================================================
		3. BUYING PROCEDURE [buy]
=============================================================================== 

Start at Burmecia. Buy Needle Fork, Glass Armlet, Mythril Gloves, 
Steepled Hat, Magus Hat, Barbut, and Linen Cuirass. 

Next, go to Alexandria; the shopkeeper is by the hotel. Buy Mythril Dagger, 
Gladius, Stardust Rod, Lightning Staff, Bone Wrist, Mythril Armlet,
Magic Armlet, Lamia's Tiara, Twist Headband, Gold Helm, Magician 
Cloak, and Survival Vest.

Go to Chocobo Forest and buy 22 Gyshal Greens. 

Head for Dali. Buy Dagger, Mage Masher, Rod, Mage Staff, Wrist,  
Leather Wrist, Leather Hat, Feather Hat, Rubber Helm, Leather Shirt, 
and Silk Shirt.

Fly to Ipsen's Castle. Buy Multina Racket, Mythril Rod, N-Kai Armlet,  
Jade Armlet, Venetia Shield, Golden Hairpin, Cross Helm, and Gaia Gear. 

Go to Chocobo's Air Garden and max out your Dead Peppers. 

Go to Daguerreo. Buy Orichalcon, Fork, Holy Lance, Coronet, 
Dragon Wrist, Egoist's Armlet, and Minerva's Plate. Go to the item shop 
next and buy 65 Annoyntment, 65 Echo Screen, 65 Vaccine, 65 Remedy, 76 Potion, 
99 Soft, 22 Phoenix Down, 73 Antidote, and 65 Eye Drops. 

Now, it's time to start synthing items. Synth the proper amount of items for 
each item except the Magician Shoes, Feather Boots, and Battle Boots. You won't
be able to synthesize all of the jewels at once, so head outside and use Jewel
to get more. 

Go to Memoria and head for Hades's Synthesis Shop. Synthesize 22 Phoenix 
Pinions and the necessary amounts of the other items. While you're in Memoria, 
go to the Crystal World and steal Wing Edges from Crystal Tiamat until you have
 14. 

Go to Chocobo Forest once again and buy 99 Gyshal Greens. 

Run to Lindblum and buy Mythril Fork. Then, head for the synthesis shop 
nearby and synthesize more items. 

Go back to Daguerreo. Buy 99 Phoenix Down and synth the Feather Boots and 
Battle Boots. 

Black Mage Village should be your next stop. Synthesize the necessary items.

Finally, go back to Memoria and synthesize 99 Phoenix Pinions. You're done!
