Synthesizing the Elixir Ring

You can create an Elixir Ring by adding a Rainbow Gemstone to the Arc en Ciel recipe. The Elixir Ring is the final morph in the Polishing Powder’s recipe tree.

Before making the item, you will need to meet these requirements:

  1. Create a Blue Bomb Rod: You will need a Bomb Rod with Gathering Rank 3 for the Rainbow Gemstone. Making the Blue Bomb Rod is the easiest method. Alternatively, you can use an Ice Essence to upgrade a regular Bomb Rod.
  2. Gather Dunkelheit: The Elixir recipe requires a Dunkelheit, an ingredient notoriously difficult to find. However, it does have one specific gathering spot that is easy to access. It requires Gathering Rank 3.
  3. Obtain a Gold Puniball: The Elixir Ring recipe also requires a Gold Puniball.
  4. Create multiple Grand Orgens with “Gear Synth +”: In the final step, you will be able to add Grand Orgen ingots to accumulate stat points.

Where to Find Dunkelheit

You will be able to obtain the Dunkelheit near Grass Flower Forest’s entrance.

Fast travel to Valley of Winds – Glass Flower Forest.

Walk a short distance north from the entrance, until you reach the first fork on the road. Take the path to the right.

You will then arrive at another fork. This time, take the path to the left.

Continue until the end of the path and you will reach a lake.

Swim towards the opposite shore and you will find a few aquatic plants. Collect these plants to obtain the Dunkelheit. 

This node requires you to unlock Gathering Rank 3 from the Skill Tree.

Obtaining the Remaining Ingredients

The Elixir Ring will also require a Gold Puniball and a Rainbow Gemstone.

For the Gold Puniball, fast travel to Northern Lands – Water Spirit’s Sanctuary. 

Continue north, towards the bottom of the stairway. You will reach an open space with Gold Punis hopping around.

You will obtain the Gold Puniball from them as a common drop.

Next, you will also need a Rainbow Gemstone.

Fast travel to Northern Lands – Sand Beast’s Den. Use the Blue Bomb Rod on the rainbow crystals to the west and you will get the Rainbow Gemstone.

Creating the Elixir Ring

Once you have all the ingredients, return to the Atelier.

Synthesize an Elixir to use in the Ring’s recipe. 

The Elixir is a recipe morph, which you can obtain by adding a Dunkelheit to the Nectar recipe. You will unlock the Nectar node in the Skill Tree as part of the main story progression.

In the Elixir Ring recipe, ignore the other loops and move straight to the Traits loop. You will find it on the left side of the recipe.

Use all the remaining ingredients available and add as many Grand Orgens as possible. You should be able to use around 20 ingots.

Doing this will allow you to stack up stat points.

Skip this step if you choose to focus on the effects. You can use a Fire Essence on the second Effect 1 loop to upgrade it into Family Secret. Using a Wind Essence on the second Effect 2 loop will upgrade it into Unbeatable Strategy.
