How to Create the Exploration Set in Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout

You will craft the Exploration Set by morphing the Knapsack recipe. For this, you will also need the Wind Shoes.

You must meet the following requirements to synthesize the Exploration Set:

  1. Synthesize the Wind Shoes: You will need Wind Shoes with Wind Element Level 4.
  2. Unlock the Knapsack recipe: The Knapsack is a morph, obtained by adding an Alchemy Paint to one of Beastial Air’s Recipe loops.
  3. Obtain a Gold Puniball: You will also need at least one Gold Puniball for the Exploration Set. This ingredient is a common drop from the Gold Puni, which you can find at Traveler’s Road – Limewick Hill.

Collecting the Ingredients

The Gold Puniball is the only specific ingredient you will need for this recipe. Make sure you also have the Knapsack recipe unlocked.

This Exploration Set won’t have all effects when synthesized this way. You can use the Item Rebuild option to add them later.

The Exploration Set has three effects:

  • Wind Rider
  • Basket Size XL

All three effects are on the left side of the recipe.

Exploration Set Uses

The Exploration Set combines the Knapsack and the Wind Shoes into one, giving you an increased bag size and also the benefits of the Wind Shoes depending on what traits are on it. Consolidating two gathering tools in one will allow you to bring another gathering tool instead.
