                                 Introduction
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

This is an FAQ on item refining in the game Star Ocean: Till the End of Time,
in case you hadn't guessed by the title and the link you just clicked. It's
based on the European version of the game, which seems to be an exact replica
of the American version (spellings and all), which in turn is a replica of the
Japanese Director's Cut version. This guide may NOT be accurate if used with
the original, buggy, Japanese version of the game, so if you're playing that
then be aware that you might not get the correct information here. Anyhow, this
is about my second FAQ, and my first really specialised one: you don't want to
know about my first, and I've changed alias since then, so it's pretty doubtful
that you'll find it, and pretty doubtful that I want you to read it.
People have been asking a lot about how items refine, especially such famous
ones as Boots of Prowess, Orichalcum and Blazing Pendant. Tiring of explaining
the same items over and over, I decided to finally write this, so I have
somewhere to point people who subsequently ask. I've also found that it's
helped me realise a few diamonds in the rough, and making this FAQ may actually
change by equipment strategy, especially in subsequent playthroughs. Oh, and in
case you're wondering, I did this on Galaxy mode, but I don't imagine that
any other difficulty will have significant changes.
Well, now that introductions are over with...

-------------------------------
A quick explanation of refining
-------------------------------

In short, refining an item is changing its "factors". In long, refining is the
term used to describe going to your local workshop, hitting Invent, selecting
some inventors and a talent, and picking "Specify Plan" rather than "Original
Invention". Then you'll be asked which item you want to refine, be given a cost
to refine the item, and away you go. Refining USUALLY makes an item better,
however there are "good" factors which can get worse or disappear, and there
are "bad" factors which... well, get worse.

---------------------
What's a factor then?
---------------------

A factor is one of those little notes you see under "Factors" when viewing an
item's description. It's these, not the base attributes of an item, which can
be refined.

-----------------------------------------------------------
What's that number in brackets after the factor mean, then?
-----------------------------------------------------------

That's then number of things that that particular factor can do upon a
successful refine. For example, the factor "ATK +500 (1)" has one refining
outcome: in this case, to create a copy of itself. The factor "50% probability
of breaking (2)" can either change into, or add, the factor "10% probability of
breaking (2)". A factor that doesn't have any number after it cannot be
refined, however I've added "(0)" after such factors in the item lists for
clarity, and to make sure I've missed nothing.

--------------------------------------------------------------
So what are those comments in square brackets all about, then?
--------------------------------------------------------------

Where I've made a comment in double square brackets after an item, [[like
this]], it's simply a comment that I've added about the item, such as an extra
purpose that isn't listed in the item's factors.

------------------------------------------
Does this refining use anything but money?
------------------------------------------

Unfortunately, yes. To refine something using a particular talent, you need
that talent's unique materials. You'll need one for each refine process you go
through, not for each factor refined, so if you're lucky enough to get more
than one factor refined in one look at the inventing screen, you've still only
used one material. Conversely, if you're unlucky enough not to refine anything,
you've still used a material.
The materials are mainly called "Talent Materials", with the exceptions of
Cooking Ingredients and Compounding Elixirs. Please refer to an Item FAQ to
find out where to get them.

------------
A final note
------------

Although any factor will refine the same way on any item it starts on or can be
synthed onto, there are a few factors which are VERY similar but refine in
different ways: "+10% INT increase (1)" and "10% INT increase (1)" spring to
mind. Although the difference is only a plus sign, they are in fact both found
on the same item, and the second has to go through an extra refine to reach its
maximum potential. I've tried as best as I can to type exactly what the factors
are, including an entire search after I realised I'd been mis-spelling "gauge",
so please try to find the correct factor or you might be in for a surprise!

Thanks go to:
CJayC, for creating the best site out there for gamers in trouble
A l e x, without your Item Creation FAQ this would never have been written
randomstuff, without your handy IC JavaScript it would have taken a lot longer
             to make everything [[script is at http://www.crashedweb.com/so3/]]
Tri-Ace, for developing a game I can actually write an FAQ on
Square Enix, for distributing it
And Ubisoft, for publishing it in Europe
And last, but not least, thanks to everyone at the GameFAQs SO3 message board.
I'm still technically a newb there, but you've treated me great and this is
my gift back to you.

This FAQ is created by me, myself and I alone, except where credit is given to
other people. As such, I'd like to decide what happens to it, understandably.
I also want to save myself the hassle of a million sites emailing me asking for
permission to use my FAQ, and I've seen too many FAQs with banned site lists
that seem to overall include every site but GameFAQs. As such, I am ONLY
letting GameFAQs host this FAQ. I repeat, in capitals:

NO, YOU MAY NOT USE THIS FAQ ON YOUR SITE. I DON'T CARE IF YOU'RE MAKING PROFIT
OR NOT, I DON'T CARE IF I GET CREDIT OR NOT, YOU CANNOT USE IT. DO NOT BOTHER
ASKING FOR PERMISSION TO USE IT, I WILL IMMEDIATELY IGNORE AND DELETE ANY MAIL
ASKING FOR SUCH PERMISSION.

Oh yeah, and I claim copyright to this work. It's only for private use,
printing is acceptable if only for your own use, and please don't make profit
from this work or claim it as your own. You MAY send it to your friends, but
please leave it completely intact and unchanged, along with this entire section

  You have now reached the end of the FAQ. Please step outside the vehicle to
   your left, as quickly as possible. Thank you for reading Demonfayt's Item
     Refining FAQ, and please enjoy the rest of your day here at GameFAQs!
