Synthesizing the Golden Axe

You will need a Goldoterion in order to make a Golden Axe. The Goldoterion is the third morph in the Ingot recipe tree.

These are the requirements you will need to meet before synthesizing the Golden Axe:

  1. Obtain a Goldinite: In order to obtain the Goldoterion, you need to add a Goldinite to the Criminea recipe.
  2. Raise your Staff’s Gathering Rank: Obtaining a Goldinite requires Gathering Rank 2.

Where to Find the Goldinite

The easiest area to obtain Goldinite is Sand Beast’s Den, an optional area to the west of Northern Lands – Red Cliff.

On Sand Beast’s Den, head to the central part of the map, and then continue west.

You will find multiple rainbow-colored crystals around. Use the Staff with Gathering Rank 2 or better on these crystals to obtain Goldinite.

Once you obtain the Goldinite, return to the Atelier and synthesize a Goldoterion.

Make sure you have already completed these two previous morphs:

  • Ingot into Startium (requires Arknite).
  • Startium into Criminea (requires Degenesis Stone).

Add the Goldinite to the Recipe loop in the Criminea recipe and you will obtain a Goldoterion.
