Synthesizing the Divine Fishing Rod

You can create the Divine Fishing Rod by adding a Stahl Fiber to the Fishing Rod recipe. The Stahl Fiber is a recipe morph in the Alchemy Fibers’ tree.

Before synthesizing the Divine Fishing Rod, you must meet the following requirements:

  1. Advance the main story: You will only be able to create the Divine Fishing Rod once you gain access to the Ethereal Dragon’s Coffin in Underworld Gate Again, part 2.
  2. Obtain an Underworld Crystal: The Stahl Fiber recipe morph requires an Underworld Crystal.
  3. Unlock the Fishing Rod recipe: The Fishing Rod recipe node costs 400 SP in the Skill Tree. This node isn’t mandatory for the main story’s completion.
  4. Create a Heavenly String: You will also need a Heavenly String to max out the Divine Fishing Rod’s effects. The Heavenly String is another morph in the Alchemy Fibers’ recipe tree.

Obtaining the Underworld Crystal

You can gather Underworld Crystals from the Philuscha at Ethereal Dragon’s Coffin.

The Underworld Crystal is a common drop from all Philuscha monsters.

You can also get an Underworld Crystal using the Golden Axe, or a Woodcutter’s Axe with Gathering Rank 3. 

The Underworld Crystal can be obtained from these large purple crystals. You will find them at Ethereal Dragon’s Coffin – Den of the Wise in the Second Residential Area, west of the entrance.

Synthesizing the Divine Fishing Rod

Once you obtain the Underworld Crystal, return to the Atelier. Start by synthesizing the Stahl Fiber.

The Stahl Fiber is the second morph in the Alchemy Fibers’ tree:

  • Alchemy Fibers into Heavenly String (requires Angel Silk).
  • Heavenly String into Stahl Fiber (requires an Underworld Crystal).
