Healing items can be created through the synthesis feature in Atelier Ryza 2. Players can unlock the recipe for Grass Beans through the Skill Tree for 100 SP almost immediately after she gets access to her new apartment. This item can provide necessary healing for later encounters. It is suggested that if you are new to Atelier Ryza 2, you try to collect the items to craft healing item as soon as you can, since combat encounters may become more challenging if you’re not accustomed to the game’s systems.
After unlocking the Grass Beans recipe through the Skill Tree for 100 SP, players can then create the healing item using the cauldron to synthesize the item. In order to make Grass Beans, you will need Flowers, Edibles, and Medicinal items as your core components. All of these items can be obtained within the first few minutes of exploration. So in the Medicinal category, you might want to grab crimson grasses, health flowers, or tauns. As for Flowers, health flowers, sunny honey flowers, and northern wind flowers can all work.
You only need to make the item once in order to use it, so there isn’t any need to create hundreds of Grass Beans. Instead, you’ll want to immediately begin looking for better quality materials to make a better quality version of this item.
However, in order to use healing items in combat, you will need to equip that item to a character. Additionally, players will not be allowed to use healing items (or any item for that matter) on a whim during combat in Atelier Ryza 2. Instead, you will need to build up your Core Charges before you can use your healing items. This can be done simply enough by attacking enemies. If you’re already familiar with the combat, then you already know the basics.
If you’re not so familiar or need a refresher, you can accumulate Core Charges by attacking an enemy using character skills. In order to use these skills, players will need to attack enemies using basic attacks to accumulate action points. You can chain together more than one basic attack by mashing the button during your animation, so don’t just tap the button once when your turn rolls around. After a few turns you’ll then be able to use a character ability. Using an ability then accumulates a Core Charge. Don’t forget that you can also perform a timed guard in combat, which can help mitigate some of the damage you’ll take during encounters.
Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends & the Secret Fairy is immediately available for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC.
