How to Create the Mirage Loupe in Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout

You can synthesize the Mirage Loupe by adding a Saint’s Diamond to the Glass Flower’s recipe. This will require you to morph other two different recipes.

Here are the requirements you must meet in order to synthesize the Mirage Loupe:

  1. Synthesize the Saint’s Diamond: The Saint’s Diamond is a recipe morph, which starts with the Polish Powder.
  2. Unlock the Glass Flower recipe: the Mirage Loupe is also a recipe morph. You need to obtain the book Common Paper by completing the quest “Replacement Crystal”.

Collecting the Ingredients

You need to morph the Spirinite recipe into the Saint’s Diamond. This process starts with the Polish Powder recipe. The Saint’s Diamond morph requires a Holy Arbor Crystal.

You will also need to obtain the Mirage Loupe recipe, which is another recipe morph. This process starts with the Zettel recipe.

Gathering the Holy Arbor Crystal for the Saint’s Diamond

The Saint’s Diamond is the fourth recipe morph in the line, starting with the Polish Powder. You will automatically unlock the recipe during Taking the First Step – part 4.

These are all the morphs you need to complete:

  1. Polish Powder into Pearl Crystal (requires a Shell Pearl).
  2. Pearl Crystal into Amberlite (requires an Amber Crystal).
  3. Amberlite into Spirinite (requires Emerald Grass)
  4. Spirinite into Saint’s Diamond (requires a Holy Arbor Crystal)

In order to obtain the Holy Arbor Crystal, fast travel to Pynnor Tower – Sanctuary Garden.

Equip the Reaper’s Scythe and use it on the Holy Arbor logs you find outside.

Obtaining the Mirage Loupe’s Recipe

First, you will need to unlock the Zettel recipe, which requires the book Common Paper. 

The book is a reward for completing Pat’s first quest, “Replacement Crystal”. You will unlock it at Old Town – Near the Fountain.

After obtaining the recipe, complete the following morphs:

  1. Zettel into Traveller’s Water Orb (requires Foamy Water).
  2. Traveller’s Water Orb into Delphi Rose Incense (requires a Rosen Leaf).
  3. Delphi Rose Incense into Glass Flower (requires a Roteswasser Tonic).

You will find the Roteswasser Tonic at Maple Delta – Fragrant Forest. Head over to the water gathering point on the north of the map to obtain it.

Obtaining a Fairy Segment

If you want to unlock all of the Mirage Loupe’s effects, you will also need a Fairy Segment.

Fast travel to Pixie Forest – Arbor Ruins. Head over to the east side of the map.

Like all large monsters, the Elder Fairy will not attack you.

You can use the Item Rebuild function to add all effects. 

Alternatively, you can synthesize a new one from scratch with all effects. However, this option is much more difficult.
