Just about everything you need to make in Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends & the Secret Fairy will be made from something else. One of the most important items in the game is the humble Ingot. This will allow you to make all manner of items and tools as the game progresses.
To make Ingots, you will need to learn the recipe in your Skill Tree, and then use the required materials in the alchemy cauldron. Ingots need the following ingredients:
- Amatite Ore
Ore and stone are quite easy to come by in the early game, but Amatite Ore can be a little more awkward to find. A good source of Amatite Ore in the early game is the Mausoleum of Eternity, the very first set of ruins that you will need to explore. This place can feel a little dangerous when you first explore it, but it is quite friendly for beginner players.
Head into the ruins, which can be found in the Forest of Beginnings in the Capital Outskirts, and then make your way all the way to the end. Go to the very left and you will find some stones that you can interact with. These will yield Amatite Ore when you harvest them. You don’t need a certain level of staff to do it, as this is a simple pick-up resource.
Once you have the resource, you can use the World Map to fast travel back to your atelier in the Capital and start crafting your Ingots. As you get further into the game, you find Amatite Ore in Schirm Marsh, Windmuhle Valley, and the Maiden’s Catacombs, so be sure to keep an eye out for it on your travels.
