How to Create the Best Weapon for Lila in Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout

The best weapon for Lila is the Oren Herald. You will be able to synthesize it by morphing the Wind Slicer with a Goldoterion.

These are the requirements you must clear before synthesizing the Oren Herald:

  1. Achieve Alchemy Level 99: At the maximum Alchemy Level, you will be able to optimize the Oren Herald.
  2. Complete all Pynnor Holy Tower treasure maps: The Goldoterion recipe is available as the reward from the last treasure map.

Gathering the Ingredients

In order to synthesize the Oren Herald, you will need these ingredients:

  • An Ingot with the Gear Synth: ATK +3 and DEF +2 effects.
  • A Bronze Eizen with the Gear Synth: ATK +4 and DEF +3 effects.
  • A Staltium with the Gear Synth: ATK +4 and DEF +3 effects.
  • A Criminea with the Gear Synth: ATK/SPD +3 and DEF +3 effects.
  • A Goldoterion with the Gear Synth: All +5 and ATK/SPD +5 effects.

After synthesizing them, use the Multiplicauldron and create the following number of copies:

  • Ingot: two units.
  • Bronze Eisen: three units.
  • Staltium: three units.
  • Criminea: three units.
  • Goldoterion: 26 units.

Remember to keep the original ingredients in your inventory.

Synthesizing the Oren Herald

In order to optimize a weapon, you will need to synthesize a new one from scratch. For the Oren Herald, this means starting from the Iron Claws and completing all the morphs.

Stats carry over from one morph to the next. Doing this, you will be able to stack stats for the Oren Herald.

Use the cauldron and select the Iron Claws recipe. Start by adding an Ingot to the first Quality loop.

You can also buff the Oren Herald using the Power Reactor. 

Select the “Weapon Buff” option and you will be able to add effects from other items to the weapon.

If you have all Power Reactors, then you will be able to add three effects to the Oren Herald. You can only buff a weapon once, so choose the adequate items before proceeding.

Once you are done buffing the Oren Herald, you will be able to forge it using the Power Reactor. There isn’t a limit to how many times you can forge the same weapon.

Forging allows you to increase the weapon’s stats while also adding traits. Forging costs up to 1 million Gems per item or ingredient.

The items and ingredients you use to buff or forge a weapon will disappear from the inventory. Make sure to create extra copies beforehand.
