Creating the Armanoir

Armanoir requires the following ingredients:

  • Two Grand Orgen ingots (Fire Element levels 5 and 6).
  • Five Jewel-category ingredients (Air Element levels 6, 8 and 9; Ice Element level 5).
  • Seven Metal-category ingredients (Air Element level 5; Bolt Element levels 3, 4 and 5; Fire Element levels 3, 4 and 8).
  • A Dark Glittering Oval (Bolt Element level 6).

You can use Philosopher’s Stones and Olden Philosopher’s Stones in the Jewel-category loops to quickly fill out the others. Dark Glittering Oval also has Effect Spread, making it easier to fill out the remaining loops.

Once fully rebuilt, Armanoir will have these effects:

  • Flawless: increases maximum HP and reduces damage taken when at full HP.
  • Invulnerable: disables stun damage and reduces physical damage taken.
  • Auto-recovery: recovers HP every turn.
  • Mythical Metal: reduces damage received and increases Stun Gauge damage dealt by skills.
