In the Atelier series, resource gathering is extremely important. Finding the ingredient for your next creation can take you all across the map until you find the right location. However, in Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout, Gust brings the Gathering Fields closer to you with the ability to create your own!
To see what I mean, check out the video for Gathering Synthesis below:
By performing Gathering Synthesis, you can create your own Gathering Field. The ingredients you use to create the field dictates what items and monsters you will find in the field as well as the environment. For example, including a Plant Extract while creating a Soapwort Greenland turns it into a mysterious forest. But if you use a Polishing Agent instead, the area becomes a historic ruins field! Or, if you want to heat things up, using a Flam will turn the area into a volcano field!
Each field is created with a specific bottle. Once created, a four-character password is given to the player. What is it used for? Why, to share the field with other players! If other players have enough free bottles, they can use this password in the Gathering Synthesis menu to bring the created field to them! Sharing is as easy as posting on social media!
