How to get Honey Tree Branch in Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout

There are three locations you can get Honey Tree Branch depending on your progress in the game:

  • By harvesting Trees with the Axe or Scythe Axe at Maple Delta – Sweet River
  • By harvesting Crates with the Staff at Maple Delta – Fragrant Forest
  • Via a Travel Bottle code

Locations for Harvesting Honey Tree Branch

Maple Delta – Sweet River

The earliest and fastest location to get Honey Tree Branch is found in Trees on the Maple Delta – Sweet River. Travel there using the World Map.

Once you arrive, follow the path down to the river, avoiding any enemy encounters along the way.

Once you get close to the river area, you will see two glowing trees indicating they are harvestable.

Head up to a Tree and swing the Axe or Scythe Axe on it to harvest it. This will yield anywhere from 1 to 4 Honey Tree Branch among other materials depending on your Gathering Tool’s bonus effects. Having a “Gathering Up S/M/L” on your gathering tool will yield more materials.

Make sure you have the Axe equipped. Hitting with a different tool will yield different materials. | Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout

A higher level of "Gathering Up" can yield up to 4-5 Honey Tree Branch per swing. | Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout
A higher level of “Gathering Up” can yield up to 4-5 Honey Tree Branch per swing.

Trees can be harvested multiple times before they are no longer harvestable. Every time you hit the tree, the orange gauge will deplete. Once it is empty, you will not be able to harvest any more material from it until you reload the map.

The tree can be hit around 5 times before it runs out of "HP". | Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout

Once you harvest both trees, quickly open the map, travel back to the Maple Delta – Sweet River and all the Trees will be harvestable again allowing you to quickly harvest large amounts of Honey Tree Branch in a short amount of time.

Maple Delta – Fragrant Forest

Another location you can harvest Honey Tree Branch is in Maple Delta – Fragrant Forest. Fast travel there and head immediately straight. You’ll see a crate by a small building. Use your Staff to break it and it may yield a Honey Tree Branch although it is not a guaranteed drop from crates.

Travel Bottle

Once you’ve reached a certain portion of the game, you will unlock the ability to use the Travel Bottle. Travel Bottles are mini-areas that will yield high amounts of specific materials if you know the correct code and contain enemies of a certain level depending on the Travel Bottle level. Harvesting in these areas will not require any tools. You only need to interact with the gathering node.

Learn more about Travel Bottles in our guide by following this link.

Each area will have a “Main” material and a “Secondary” material indicated by the order shown in the Travel Bottle menu, with the left being the “Main” and the right being the “Secondary”. Harvesting in bottle areas will yield slightly more of the “Main” item than the “Secondary” item.

More Travel Bottles and higher bottle levels are needed to visit higher level areas. | Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout
More Travel Bottles and higher bottle levels are needed to visit higher level areas.

The chart for the Travel Bottle codes with Honey Tree Branch will be found at the bottom of this guide.

Recommended Harvesting Location

The recommended harvesting location for Honey Tree Branch depends on whether or not you have access to the Travel Bottles as well as the minimum required bottle level for that material.

No Travel Bottle

The Maple Delta – Fragrant Forest is the recommended place to quickly farm for Honey Tree Branch since the two Trees are not only close together, each one can be harvested multiple times. It only takes about 10 seconds to get there from the arrival point and the enemies are weak and give up pursuit very quickly.

Access to Travel Bottle

The minimum required bottle level for Honey Tree Branch is 16.

Whenever a material has a Travel Bottle code, 99% of the time it will be the best location to harvest the material for the following reasons:

  • Fast access to material. The Travel Bottle areas are small so the harvest nodes are a few seconds from the entrance. You can gather every harvest node within 15 to 20 seconds of arriving. Some materials in the main world can take that long just to arrive at the harvesting point.
  • More harvest nodes. Many harvest nodes in the main world only have 1 to 3 harvestable nodes in a given area before you have to reload the area. You’ll always have 6 to 7 harvest nodes in a travel bottle.
  • Targeted farming. It is more than likely that you will need multiple materials for the recipe you need to synthesize and they are often very different types of materials that may require you to visit multiple locations. Using the chart below, you can efficiently farm two specific materials you need and greatly cut down on travel time.
  • Faster harvesting. Some of the harvest tools have a few seconds of animation, with the worst offender being the Bomb Rod. All harvest nodes in a Travel Bottle simply require you to Gather with the “A” button and require no harvest tools.

The only downside to using travel bottles is that restoring a bottle will cost you gems each time, and the higher level the area, the more expensive it will be to restore it.

Synthesis Uses for Honey Tree Branch

Although there is no recipe that specifically requires Honey Tree Branch, it can be used to fulfill the following material requirements for any other synthesis:

  • Material: (Spice), (Lumber)
  • Elemental: (Fire), (Wind)

Honey Tree Branch Travel Bottle Codes

The chart below contains Travel Bottle codes that will create areas that will yield Honey Tree Branch and one other material. 

If you receive the notice “Not enough gathering synthesis knowledge” when trying to enter or restore a bottle, it means your bottle level is too low. To increase it, follow our Travel Bottle Guide by clicking here to learn how to find more bottles and increase your bottle level.
