You will create the Pinnor Key with a Holy Drop, which requires three different recipe morphs:

  • Transform the Flour into a Poison Cube. 
  • Morph the Poison Cube into the Taboo Drop. 
  • Morph the Taboo Drop into the Holy Drop.

Here are all the requirements you need to clear before proceeding:

  1. Raise your Alchemy Level: The Pynnor Key requires Alchemy Level 39.
  2. Obtain a Beast Venom Pouch and an Underworld Rotwood: You can still obtain these two ingredients at the Boundary Cathedral.
  3. Collect a Holy Tree Leaf: This ingredient is available at the Pynnor Holy Tower.
  4. Synthesize one Poison Cube: You will need at least one additional Poison Cube to unlock the Holy Drop morph.

Gathering the Necessary Ingredients

This is an easy to follow list with all the necessary ingredients for the three morphs.

For the first recipe morph (Flour into Poison Cube): 

  • Wheat
  • Two Fuel-type ingredients
  • Scrap Paper 
  • Beast Venom Pouch.

For the second recipe morph (Poison Cube into Taboo Drop): 

  • Two Beast Venom Pouches
  • One Poison-type ingredient 
  • Underworld Rotwood.

For the third recipe morph (Taboo Drop into Holy Drop) 

  • Underworld Rotwood 
  • One Dragon-type ingredient
  • One Poison Cube
  • One Poison-type ingredient
  • Holy Tree Leaf

Obtaining the Beast Venom Pouch and the Underworld Rotwood

Both ingredients were previously available in the Underworld. However, you can still obtain both items even if you missed them on the first visit.

Fast travel to Hidden Cove – Boundary Cathedral.

Look for these scorpion-like Philuscha, the Stingers.

Getting the Holy Tree Leaf

You will find the Holy Tree Leaf in the Pynnor Holy Tower. 

Fast travel to Pynnor Tower – Spiral Hall. Investigate the rooms and look for these sacks.

Collect them to obtain the Holy Tree Leaf. You will only need one, as long as it has at least an Element Level of 4.

Synthesizing the Holy Drop and the Pynnor Key

After obtaining the ingredients, return to the Atelier and use the cauldron. You will need to complete the recipe morphs first.

Poison Cube

Start off by synthesizing one Poison Cube. You can obtain it as a Flour recipe morph by inserting a Beast Venom Pouch into the Recipe loop.
