Awakening Effects: More Control Over Synthesis! Draw Out Materials’ Hidden Powers

– Atelier Lulua introduces a new synthesis element called “Awakening Effect”
– An Awakening Effect is the hidden effect originally possessed by a material
– By synthesizing with an item that possesses an Awakening Effect as an ingredient, you can create items with effects that do not appear in standard synthesis
– When synthesizing a Donor Stone, if you use an ingredient with an “Additional Fire Damage” Awakening Effect, the Donor Stone will have both its traditional “Thunder Damage” effect and the additional “Fire Damage” effect

Use Awakening Effects to Create Even Better Items

– There are various Awakening Effects
– Do not overlook those that can add new categories to synthesized items
– Ex: when you apply the “Awakening (Flavoring)” effect to the neutralizing agent, the neutralizing agent that would normally be a different category can be used for synthesizing ingredients from the Flavoring category
