Synthesizing the Silent Sickle

In order to make a Silent Sickle, you will need a Taboo Drop. The Taboo Drop is the final morph in the Flour’s recipe tree.

Here are the requirements you need to clear in order to synthesize the Silent Sickle:

  1. Unlock the Honey and Flour recipes: Honey and Flour share the same node in the Skill Tree.
  2. Unlock the Polishing Powder recipe: The Silent Sickle recipe requires multiple Polishing Powder units.
  3. Raise your Gathering Rank up to 2: You will need Black Muck, which requires Gathering Rank 2.
  4. Make a Woodcutter’s Axe with Capable Cutting: You will also need to collect Black Water, which requires an Axe with Gathering Rank 2.
  5. Obtain the Poison Cube recipe: The Poison Cube is a recipe morph. You will obtain it by adding Black Muck to the Flour recipe.
  6. Create a Taboo Drop: The Taboo Drop is also a recipe morph, which you will obtain by adding Black Water to the Poison Cube recipe.

Unlocking the Recipes

In order to synthesize the Silent Sickle, you first have to unlock another two recipes.

The first one is the Flour recipe, which shares a node with Honey in the Skill Tree. You will find this node on the right side.

Unlocking the Honey Set node costs 250 SP.
