  0.2 About this guide
  --------------------

This guide is written under the assumption that you have a basic understanding
of how Atelier Iris's Weapon Synthing system works. If you don't here are a
few pointers before you get started.

- Fusing two abilities of the same power will add their powers together, i.e.
  Fusing Life + Lv 3 and Life + Lv 2 will create Life + Lv 5. This is what's
  meant when you see "Stack Previous" in the Crystallization Table.

- An item has a total of 5 Effect slots, and has room for only 1 Crystal. A
  Crystal can only have a maximum of 3 effects on it. So, plan ahead what
  3 effects you want on that crystal and which item to attach it to.

- Generally crystals with the same consonants before the first vowel in their
  names can be stacked. Those that aren't take up 1 of the remaining effect
  slots on the crystal

- When you attach a Crystal, the effects already present on the item
  can fuse with the effects on the crystal and provide a different effect
  as if you fused the crystals with those effects together.

- Only a select few items can hold crystals. These items are generally one of
  a kind, and given Atelier Iris's nature you shouldn't throw anything away.

- It's strongly advised you have an Aroma Material around as most of the rarer
  crystallizations involve Grupt and Paltia. This is perfect because there are
  2 Aroma Materials to be found in the game.

- Unless you have completed the game and have access to Luplus along with a
  steady supply of Jade and Crimson Manas, you will be somewhat limited in
  your crystallizations. Weapon Synthing is not an integral part of the game
  as it can be completed without it. But once you have completed the game,
  Mana crystallization and fusing quickly becomes more versatile and useful.

Much of this guide is based on information already available, and obtained from
other FAQs. Much of the most important information was however split between
many guides. While Atelier Iris's Crystallization is mostly random and at times
confusing, there is a fine line that can be walked were virtually all the
randomness is eliminated and you can get precisely what you're looking for, and
that's the goal of the guide, to bring together all the most important
information together to get exactly what you want from Mana Crystallization and
Fusion

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

1 - Ideal Crystallization Table
===============================

Below is a table that lists all the possible effects you can get from Mana
Crystallization and Fusion. These effects are arranged by order of type and
then power for ease of use. Advanced effects are included as they relate to
the previous types they affect. Effects such as Very Heavy won't appear under
the Attack Stat type, because they also effect the Speed Stat, so they are
listed after both Attack and Speed groupings have been covered.

The "->" in the Method column indicates both Fusion and Crystallization. It
essentially means "Apply this to that, and vice versa."

A note about the effect [X] Magic Lv 4: Due to a translation error, this effect
will come up as [X] Res Lv 4. Don't Panic, it is still [X] Magic Lv 4, the game
hasn't screwed you over. Just add one more [X] Magic to get Lv 5, and you'll be
fine. It's not a "Res" effect unless there's a "+" there. If not "+" is there
it's a "Magic" effect.

* Warnings:
 1) Paltia may produce either Life + Lv2 or Psn Res + Lv 1
 2) Paltia may produce either Blessing Power or Accuracy + Lv1
 3) Paltia may produce either Battle Lord PWR or Avoid + Lv1
 4) Paltia may produce either Par Res + Lv 1 or D Magic Lv1
 5) Paltia may produce either Psn Res + Lv 1 or I Magic Lv1
 6) Paltia may produce either Slp Res + Lv 1 or F Magic Lv1
 7) Paltia may produce either Slp Res + Lv 1 or L Magic Lv1

- There is no way to get 100% crystallization for Accuracy +, Avoid +,
  [Status] Res +, or [X] Magic. Paltia is the best choice because she can
  guarantee you'll get something good even if you don't get what you want.

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

2 - Getting Mana Stones
=======================

Many Mana stones can be found lying on the ground throughout the course of the
game. Eventually you'll use them all up and will need to find more. You can
buy them from merchants, but they usually have a very limited supply and can
be quite expensive to buy. Some enemies do drop them, but they are still quite
rare. Late in the game there is a sidequest that opens up the Mana Forge in
Iris's Resting Place, where a fairy will give out one stone at random to you
over time. These methods on their own aren't very effective, but when working
together you can quickly rake in the Mana Stones that you need. The process is
by no means fast, it's just long and grinding.

  2.1 - From Enemies
  ------------------

    Dark, Black, Blue Mana Stones: Puni God
       Various Punis have these as rare drops. It may take a while, but you can
       go Puni hunting inside the Puni God. You'll probably get more Blue Manas
       here than you'll know what to do with, but they can also sell for a
       decent price once you have no more use for them.

    Red, Yellow, Green Mana Stones: Cleft of Nelvia/Poto's Forest
       If you go the Cleft of Nelvia you'll encounter scores of Pigs, Vultures,
       Vine Traps, and sometimes Wood Golems. The best place for getting
       Green Mana drops is from Poto's Forest, since Wood Golems are incredibly
       common enemies there.

    Glowing, Silver, Jade, Crimson Mana Stones: Mull's Dungeon (Bonus Dungeon)
       These rare Mana stones can all be gotten in the bonus dungeon after the
       game is completed. Flame Virums appear very rarely inside the final
       dungeon and have a Crimson Mana as a rare drop. Note that Jade and
       Crimson Manas cannot be bought.

    Gold Mana Stones:
       Gold Manas are very hard to obtain. No monster is known to drop them,
       and they cannot be bought. Which means the best chance of getting more
       is from the Mana Forge. So it's best not to use them, as you can get
       the same effects from more common Mana Stones - it'll just require
       more fusions. It bears repeating; don't use a Gold Mana unless you're
       absolutely certain you want to use it.

  2.1 - Purchasing
  ----------------

    Getting the money needed to buy Mana Stones requires some work. Probably
    the most ideal way is when Veola can make Rings of Love. These sell for
    4,500 Cole each, and they cost very little to actually make. Rings of Love
    require just 4 items. Comet Stones, Silver Legiens, Wax, and any other
    "Powder" to make. Comet Stones by themselves are hard to come by, but if
    you go to the Mines north of Arcose, there is 1 Comet Stone near the top
    of the pulley that has a good chance of appearing if you go in and out of
    the store there. You'll need the Fly ability to reach it though.
    Incidentally the store also sells Silver Legiens, which you'll need. On
    top of that, anywhere from 1-4 Mini Pendalooks can appear as well, you'll
    need these for having Veola make Pendalooks, which is the currency for
    the Land of Mana. Use the Comet Stones, and ideally Salt (as it's the
    cheapest) to create a Comet Gem. Then use the Comet Gem, Silver Legiens,
    and Wax to create a Ring of Love. 9 of these will sell for just over
    40,000 Cole. Also note that you usually can't buy 9 Silver Legiens in one
    passing at the Mines, you need to get into a battle before the store will
    restock them. This is a good opportunity to go to Poto's Forest, and the
    Resting Place of Iris to get a few more Mana Stones along the way.

    The Fairy at the way-point area sells Dark, Black, and Red Manas. However
    he doesn't have many in stock. Most times you can only buy 1-4 stones from
    him.

    The Exiled Fairy Pattote appears in certain locations once you have amassed
    at least 30,000 Cole. He sells Yellow, Blue, Green, Glowing, and Silver
    Manas. The best place to find him is right outside the Weapon Shop in
    Kavoc. It's a good idea to pay a visit to him once you've amassed around
    200,000 Cole since he always has lots of Mana Stones in stock.

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

3 - Advanced Effect Recipes
===========================

There are some effects that produce new effects, when combined with certain
crystals. These can be broken down into 2 groups; Simple and Advanced.

Simple ones generally require 2 simple crystallization procedures, and some
stacking of those crystals before you combine them. These are:

Pierce
Dirty Power
Animal Instinct
Heavy Blow
Fire Protect
Water Protect
Thunder Protect
Holy Protect (Long way around)
Masters Karma
Par Res (With Gold Mana)
Poison Res (With Gold Mana)
Sleep Res (With Gold Mana)
Puni Slayer
Dragon Slayer
Demon Slayer
Double Attack

These are simple recipes because you can look at the above table and know what
you need to do in one look. Example: Pierce requires you have at least
ATK COMP Lv 3 and Atk + Lv 2 before you fuse them. By looking at the above
table you can quickly determine what it is you need for both components.

Advanced ones require more than 2 crystallization procedures, and in some
cases requires you to use Simple Effect recipes as a component. These are:

Ancient Curse
Battle Protect
Magic Stone
Holy Sanctuary (Long Way Around)
Single Power (Long Way Around)
Par Res (Without Gold Mana)
Poison Res (Without Gold Mana)
Sleep Res (Without Gold Mana)
Beast Killer
Mana Slayer
Evil Slayer
Holy Weapon

With these effects, it becomes difficult to map out what you'll need, and keep
track of what you need to do with the stones. And it's here that this part of
the guide will lay it out, so that you don't have to go scrolling back and
forth over the table repeatedly and get confused. Of all of these, Holy Weapon
is in a league of it's own as currently being the most complicated one to get
as it needs 2 Advanced effect recipes.

Ancient Curse: (4 Stones Total)

  2) 2 Glowing
     Use Diemia to crystallize 2 Silver Manas and fuse them together
     Use Diemia to crystallize 2 Glowing Manas and fuse them together

     Once you have the Magic Stone, you can advance it one step further by

     crystallize a Crimson Mana and fuse them together.

Single Power (Long Way Around): (5 Stones Total)
     Once you have the Ancient Curse effect, you can advance it one step

Sub) Any 3 Glowing for any 3 Silver

       Black Manas, to get Atk + Lv3.
     Fuse the above products together to get Beast Killer.

Mana Slayer: (6-10 Stones Total)
     Once you have the Ancient Curse effect, you can advance it one step
     further by having Aion or Flay crystallize 2 Silver Manas, or Grupt
     crystallize 6 Black Manas to get Atk + Lv6 and fuse them all together.

Evil Slayer: (4-8 Stones Total + 7-11 more if you don't use Jade to get
              Holy Sanctuary)
  1) 1 Jade
  2) 2 Silver
Sub) 1 Silver for 3 Black
  3) 1 Jade
     Use Uru, Nymph, Diemia, Aion, or Grupt to crystallize 1 Jade Mana.

     Use Luplus to crystallize 1 Jade.
     Fuse the products together to get Evil Slayer.

     If you don't use Jade you will have to fuse the effects of Spirit Stone -
     gotten only from Crimson Mana, and Magic Stone together to get Holy
     Sanctuary.

Holy Weapon: (5-9 Stones total + 12-16 more if you don't use shortcuts)
     This one's a doozy. You need both Evil Slayer and Single Power in order
     to get it. Single Power can easily be gotten with 1 Stone, and can be
     fused with Evil Slayer to get Holy Weapon. If you're really sadistic you
     can take the really long path of doing Evil Slayer and Single Power the
     long way around, but it's not really recommended.
