Wild Arms 4 Weapon and Armour Compounding Guide. v1.2 26/7/06

Also on the bottom Sheriff's Star Guide by Orin Oraska.

Nothing fancy, just what it says up the top there.

All total costs listed here is as if you had to purchase all the items first 
hand.  Some can be found in chests and you will likely already have some of the
armour and weapons from stores previously.  How you go about acquiring the
money and items is up to you.  This was created to provide a convenient list of
where the items are readilly available and how many of which ones are needed.

Two thank yous.

Split Infinity, made playing the game a whole lot easier for a neurotic.
The RPGDL guys over at http://www.rpgdl.com for giving me a place to ramble on
any topic you can think of.  Also there is the slight Duelling League bit.

More thank yous, Orin Orasaka for the Sheriff's Star info, sorry I took so long
getting my act together with it.  Also to Talaysen for some info on other spots
that the badges can be coughed up.


If you feel the need to contact me, feel free to try wa4compounding@hotmail.com
chances are you won't get a reply though, I am lazy.  Best chances are to try
the Wild Arms 4 forums here, I will be lurking every now and then or try the 
forums at the RPGDL since I frequent there.  If you want in game help though
there are a million better people to ask, this guide was all monkey work,

Oh and don't bother asking to host it anywhere else, I am just to damned lazy.
I couldn't care, find another sucker.  If anyone steals it, atleast have the 
decency to tidy it up.
