I. Introduction
==============================================================================
Hello! Welcome to my second FAQ that I made. This game titled Atelier Iris:
Eternal Mana, is released at the same time as the Atelier Iris: Eternal Mana 2.
Anyway, this guide is supposed to be the guide of the first game. Though I
haven't found all of the Items and Item Synthesis yet (because in some cases,
I'm too lazy to mix it up), this guide can be of a reference for playing.
Contact me for any questions at:

gismovaliant@yahoo.com

or

gismovaliant@netscape.net

I will mark the updated section by adding [UPDATE] icon accordingly.

==============================================================================
III. Item Synthesis
==============================================================================
--------------------------
A. What is Item Synthesis?
--------------------------
Other than Mana Synthesis (refer to my other FAQ), there is also Item
Synthesis. Item Synthesis is more like combining, constructing, building, or
mixing some items and ingredients to get a totally new item. This new item can
be used as healing items in battle or to accomplish some missions in this 
game. New synthesized items will be available throughout the game if you often
talk to the owner. Also, when a synthesized item is labelled as SOLD OUT, if
you synthesize it again, then there's a possibility that the corresponding
item will be available. New synthesized items available throughout the game
progress will be marked with (E).

---------------------------------
B. Ingredients for Item Synthesis
---------------------------------
Ingredients for the Item Synthesis can be found throughout the game progress.
Every item you picked up can be as an ingredient to a synthesized item. 
However, some synthesized items request one, two, three or all or their
ingredients in order to make it. For this circumstance, I have marked the
requested as [M].

Some items are very rare, so you have to buy it and you can only buy it once.
The ingredients also can be found in the stores, in the Regallzine (the
currency is Cole), World of Mana (the currency is Pendelook), and the Hidden
Village (the currency is Karikari Nuts). You can only have 9 as the maximum
number of an item held. Some items have the same species, so they go in order.
To see which item is better than the other in the Item Synthesis, just look at
the order of items when being asked for ingredients. USUALLY, the last item in
order are the item which gave the best review.

-----------------
C. Altering Items
-----------------
Altering Items (I name it myself) are using different ingredients to make a
different synthesized items but has the same type as the original one. To be
able to alter synthesized items, you must have a wide variety of ingredients.
When a new synthesized item is available for altered, the shop owner will tell
you that "We will get something unique or new" or something like that. For an
example, to make Tinglecannon, you'll need Tingleberry. But when you alter
Tingleberry to Garigari Nuts, it will turn up as Garigari Liquor. But, the
owner will not inform you that you will get Garigari Liquor if you have
altered it before. This sucks. To reduce this effect, in this FAQ I have
marked the crucial ingredients that makes a synthesized item altered with [!].
Also, there's four item as the maximum number of ingredients. Some synthesized
items though, can be altered by simply exchanging the order of ingredients.
For that reason, I have made corresponding numbers like this:

[1][2]
[3][4]

Then in the recipe I will write:
- (Recipe name)
  Ingredients:
  [1]
  [2]
  [3]
  [4]
  Description:
  (Item description)
  (Item effect)

Here's the example, when the recipe highlight the Tinglecannon drink:

------------
xxxxxxxxxxxx
------------    [Milk]            [Tingleberry]
Tinglecannon
------------    [Karikari Liquor] [Honey]
xxxxxxxxxxxx
------------

Then it will turn up in my FAQ as:
- Tinglecannon
  Ingredients:
  Milk
  Tingleberry [!]
  Karikari Liquor [M]
  Honey
  Description:
  Very strong cocktail flavored with Tingleberry.
  (Single Life and Mana heal)

It means that:
1) The Karikari Liquor is a must ingredient.
2) Altering Tingleberry may turn up in different result.
3) Tinglecannon is not an item available throughout an event, since there is
   no (E) icon.
4) You can alter Milk and Honey safely with the same result.
5) Tinglecannon can heal a single person's Life and Mana points.

------------------
D. Reviewing Items
------------------
Review means the quality of the items. There's more than 30 reviews as far as
I'm aware. There might be more than that. Every synthesized items can have up
to 5 reviews. The better the review, the better the item will work. Good or
bad an item's reviews can be seen by the review window which always comes up
after you synthesize an item in the quality bar (so far, I can only reach the
+97 level). The better the quality, the better the store review is. Store
review represents how many people coming to the shop, which item is the most
favourite, the item's quality ACCORDING TO THEM, and the reason why they
choose that item. The better the store review, then the better your relation
with the shop owner. The better your relation, more items will be able to be
synthesized. So far, I got the store review 100% quality for Farewell, Love
because of it's Soul Breaking review.

==============================================================================
V. FAQ (Frequently Asked Question)
==============================================================================
In this section, there will be some general questions that I think you might
ask me through email. So please DON'T EMAIL ME ANYTHING ANSWERED HERE!

------------------
Gameplay Questions
------------------
Q: Where can I find those ingredients?
A: Mostly rare ingredients come from enemies, as for other ingredients, you can
   obtain them at the field. Feel free to grab them.

Q: Some Items in your FAQ don't have the effects or the description explained,
   why?
A: Because it's either I'm too lazy to use it or the item is so rare that I
   don't want to use it. But I'll complete the effects before this FAQ goes to
   Final version. As for the description, I simply haven't synhtesize them yet.

Q: Some ingredients for the Items don't match the game, why?
A: Because in the game it's the first ingredients, while in my FAQ it's the
   latest and newest ingredients I use. But don't worry, it's just the name
   that differs, not the type of items.

Q: Where can I find Mana Spirits?
A: You can find them in mostly, dungeons. Seriously. You'll have your first
   Wood Mana and Fire Mana automatically, but for others, you'll have to find
   it by yourself. Just check weird looking blue statue in some dungeons.

Q: Where can I extract elements?
A: Anywhere, anyplace, but not anything. You have to knock your cane to some
   things sometimes, to make sure that thing can be extracted. Or, you can
   choose Element Extraction option in the Items menu. Every items you collect
   have elements in it (not all weapon type items do).

Q: Do some elements have their own level or rarity?
A: Yes, they do. The most common elements are Water, Fire, Stone and Wood.
   Then next, comes the common Air and Lighning. Next, there are Power, Life,
   Dark, Spirit, and Light in the rare level. Then comes the extra rare Holy
   and Evil elements and finally the extremely rare Time element (even I just
   got 25 of this element). 

Q: Does every Mana Spirits adds one Action Dial button?
A: No, not every Mana Spirit does. Silwest and Nymph have the same Action Dial
   button. But not all metamorphed Spirits have the same Action Dial button.
   Some though like Zeilia can be either in Destructive Blast or Barrier.
   (thanks to AVAVT for the info)

Q: How do I get Luplus?
A: Dunno, haven't got there yet.

Q: How do I get through the cell in Kavoc Sewers?
   How do I get treasure chest on top of the house?
A: You will get it, eventually, just play the game first.

Q: Does Mana Synthesis / Action Dial button affect the Mana status?
A: Yes and no. It does affect the Health bar, but not the Affection bar.

Q: What is a Growloon?
A: Growloon is a purple baloon-like creature that can summons monsters. You
   have to use either your cane or Fire Blast to destroy them. Destroying
   them adds the number of Growloons you have defeated and the townspeople
   will give you reward for eliminating them. Defeating Growloons have some
   effects to the dungeon you're in, one of them is that you will not
   encounter a group of the strongest enemies in the dungeon.

Q: Is there any best attack items you can use in this game?
A: According to me, yes. But the ingredients are hard to get. It's the Rocket
   Flame. It does Fire-type attack, and hit all of your enemies with a hell
   amount of damage.

--------------------
B. General Questions
--------------------
Q: Why does sometimes the voice don't match the text?
A: Don't ask me. I'm not the programmer.

Q: Why don't you make the walkthrough?
A: Well, simply, I don't want to. There's probably somebody out there more
   suitable to work on that kind of FAQ.

Q: Why is the game so short? / Does the game ends when we reach Avenberry?
A: Pft, you wish. Avenberry is just the first part.

Q: Where do I save the game?
A: What the....Just check the blue book in your headquarter or at the camp.
