Post Useful Lists/Tips/Whatnot
BEFORE YOU POST IN THIS THREAD, THINK TO YOURSELF WHETHER OR NOT I WILL JUST DELETE YOUR POST FOR CLUTTERING IT UP WITH POINTLESS DRIVEL OR STUPIDITY.

Feel free to move any of this information wherever.

Searchable material dict
http://kamidori.seiha.org/index.php?title=Materials
I don't mind if you copy that to a different wiki if you want. Got tired of it after doing the materials only. It doesn't include most 2.0 additions or what Yard items can give materials as a harvest.

---------------------------

Route split begins near the end of chapter 3 when the kid asks you to find the chisel. Once that quest is finished, the route is fixed. The priority goes Yuela > Serawi > Emelita. If you don't fulfill either the Yuela or Serawi requirements, you automatically default to Emelita.

Almost all character events are tied to either level or chapter. If you aren't getting their events, level them (or Wil) up more. Crayanne and Crayl also share events, so you need to level both to trigger them.

Yuela Route
View Yuela's measurement scene (Aht lv 6 or Sharty lv 12)
Uya joined (not just guest)
Melodiana guest (or joined)
View her event when given the option in chapter 2 or 3

Serawi Route
Aht joined
Suina joined
Crayl joined

Elemental modifier rates:
◎ = Absorb 100% damage inflicted as HP
× = 0% Damage
S+ = 25% Damage
S = 50% Damage
A+ = 75% Damage
A = 90% Damage
B = 100% Damage
C = 110% Damage
D = 120% Damage
E = 130% Damage
F = 140% Damage
F- = 150% Damage

('Physical' counts as an element, Omni is always 100%)
Equippables that modify resistance move the rates up or down along that list. IE, equipping a +Resist Dark accessory on a unit with × Dark resist raises them to absorb.

Post Re: Useful Lists and Things
Money tips
Remember to sell Treasure items (gems, bags of coins, rare drops)*
Don't waste money, especially on Enhancement, early in the game.
Enhance costumes intelligently. Cost is determined by how much of the grid you already have filled and the distance from the current spot, so if you go down a dead-end branch, be aware that it will cost at least 10-20k to leave that branch. Do not be afraid to hold off enhancing costumes for NG+, especially for non-route characters (only route character's costume scenes will be available beginning in ch5)
Prioritize Price in the store. By about chapter 6, goods will be flying off the shelf even without assigning a clerk. Everything WILL get sold, Price lets you maximize the amount it sells for.
And there's always the Deadbeat Dungeon. There's no actual penalty besides the shame of using it.

*One of Hannah's quests added by 2.0 is for a rather large array of gems, but 2.0 quests are not meant to be completed on first games anyway.

Generally Handling Money
The best way is to just flip through your alchemy lists for anything you can make that costs a decent amount that you have a billion materials for. Weapons are where you're usually going to find something, although some furniture too and in the early game, the general sales items aren't bad. If you need money quickly though...

Chapter 1-3:
100% Clear Conditions and Quest rewards should give you more than enough to get by. Your shop probably won't sell much. That's normal.
Bows and Crystals are mostly made from cheap materials and sell for a good amount.

Chapter 4-7:
The shop works decently at this point, but you'll want/need to put decent storekeepers in. You should have enough units to leave one or two behind usually.
If you need cash immediately/desperately, farm Treasure Puttetos at the Amurent Forest Free Map (reload map if one isn't present when map begins). Equip a Mill (first one is at Yuma Lake Free Map, Bronze Key needed) for double drops and get 4k-10k of treasure items in a couple rounds (Chests are a rare drop worth 10k each). Use weapons/characters with Pierce to give a chance to kill it in one hit.

Chapter 8+:
Fully upgrade Workshop and increase Tools to at least 66 with furniture. That lets you upgrade wood at 1:1. 1 Plywood + 1 Ivy (easy to grow in Yard) = Barrel Pile which sells for 1k (3k+ for upgraded Store specced for Price). ~7 Wood can be farmed from nearly any forest area in one quick trip, so a round trip with a yard full of Ivy furniture nets about 18k in sellable barrels.

NG+:
The goblins on the upper levels of the NG+ mine spawn up to ~6 a turn on certain maps. They have two rare drops worth a base value of 8k or 11k. Selling them at the store lets you at least triple that through furniture (Prices stat) up to around 25k-33k if not much higher. Ragsmuena or almost any NG+ character can easily farm them with +Drop accessories equpped to build up a quick stack of the items.

Money Requirements For Sidequests
Most (none?) need to be completed right away

Ch 3
Alcohol 1: 2,000
Alcohol 2: 5,000

Ch 5
Lake: 20,000 (Quest begins chapter 4 but can't be finished until 5)
Alcohol 3: 20,000
Book: 10,000

Ch 6
Merchant: 30,000 (5,000 option available, but dungeon in quest won't have treasure items worth 60k)

Ch7
Hannah: 80,000 (NG+ only, money needs to be spent buying items from the church)
Tian1*: 100,000
Tian2: 500,000
Tian3: 1,000,000
All Tian quests require finishing his materials quests in ch 7 first which like all 2.0 quests, are nigh impossible in first games.
*All three of Tian's money quests are VERY bugged. See the bug thread for details.

NG+ (Wil required to be Meister or Magnus rank)
Yard1: 500,000
Yard2: 800,000
Yard3: 1,000,000
Yard4: 1,500,000
Yard5: 2,000,000

Mutation list
No idea what the calculation is for something mutating into something else. Sorry. Just make ~10 at a time with a high level Workshop and usually you'll get 1 or 2 mutations.

EDIT:
This list is pre-Append 2.0 There were a couple more added there, most notably the mutations for Leguna and Golem's artifacts.

Ch 1+
Blue Dragon -> Sea Dragon
Gnome Necklace -> Mountain Necklace
Undine Necklace -> Blizzard Necklace*
Ifrit Necklace -> Inferno Necklace*
Sprite Necklace -> Typhoon Necklace
Angel Necklace -> Consecrated Necklace*
Demon Necklace -> Nightmare Necklace
Mining Bracelet** -> Master Key
Small Bookshelf -> Tiny Wardrobe
Large Bookshelf -> Large Wardrobe*
Gorgeous Bookshelf -> Luxurious Wardrobe
Broom -> Magic Broom

Ch 4+
Rapid Bow -> Morph Bow
Reinforced Bow -> Morph Bow
Swanwing Bow -> Morph Bow
Sacred Bow -> Morph Bow
Mare Bow -> Morph Bow

After Melo joins
Staff of Light -> Magi Staff

*Needed for a 2.0 Quest
**Available ONLY on Serawi's route

Yeah, that's all that can mutate. Another mechanic Eushully appears to have kind of forgotten about around 33% through the game.

Have a list of the minimum level characters need to be to hit every event by chapter.

That list's just transcribed from the Japanese wiki. It's when events can possibly expire, like Serawi's pollution search thing requires Wil level 11 (I think...) and obviously can't come up in ch 4+. Or something. *shrug* Whatever, yo.

Units immune to the barrier in the lvl 70 Misanshel escort mission are:

Spoiler:


All other units take 40 HP and 40 SP damage/turn (down to 1 HP/0 SP) when on the ruins squares, regardless of elemental strengths or weaknesses.

Edit:
Some 2.0 maps have similar effects for other elements too. Maybe I'll fill that in later.

Cards mechanics:
Unlike battle/level up results, cards are on a strictly RNG instead of a random seed. IE, they can be save scummed. However, the pool of available results per card depends on what 'chapter' the card belongs to.

See: http://www44.atwiki.jp/kamidori/pages/186.html
--TRANSLATE THAT LATER--

=======================================

Eu Cards have a slightly different mechanic.

There are 8 hardset for the feathers/wings for each mascot (2 each) and 7 that will give a random feather/wing.

Colored steels cannot be acquired until the character's second synthesis quest is completed (requires the char to be level 55, then visit Eushully's house to begin). They will not spawn at all until you have completed the quest (no idea how the random ones work though).

What determines experience awarded:
A.) Character level
B.) Monster's BASE level (as given on their dict entry)
C.) Monster's BASE experience (as given on their dict entry)

Here is a helpful table that parses it all out for defeating or simple combat.

AoE is half that.

I swear I had noted this somewhere, but apparently not.
The calculation for Projectile Defense's damage reduction is 20 +(x*10)% where x is the number of spaces away.
IE, a ranged attack from one square away (adjacent) will be reduced by 30%. A ranged attack from three squares away will be reduced by 50%.

Monster Traps:
There's a 2.0 quest requiring killing 100 Greyhounds and then synthing an item. You need materials from a level 90 dungeon for it, so don't bother grinding them unless you can handle it.
Finishing this quest unlocks recipes for other monster traps (not noted anywhere) when you have 30 kills of those monsters. The possible monsters are:
Worms
Gutehounds
Segpents
Hellhounds
Werewolves
Chamyl Dragons
Tainted Saerav
Trolls

If you're playing in the Japanese version (ie, some of the names are shared across multiple monsters), then only the lowest class/basic/initial kind of those monsters count. IE, the level 90 Gutehound type in the Phema Mountains do NOT count, nor does the young/puppy version despite them all sharing the same name.

kamiitemnames.rar
Here's the list of item names with Japanese equivilents to assist in searching on Japanese wikis. Bear in mind the translation issues making many of the item names not match up before you start getting uppity about seemingly mistranslated things. An easy example is the set of *姫の首飾り necklaces (2nd level elemental resist). Text box width is 18 characters and "Princess Necklace" takes up 17 characters (all 18 with the space), so there's no choice but to discard the original. "Reyshia Pearl" items suffered a similar fate due to length, but there are many more in there with reasons that I've long since forgotten.

Post Re: Useful Lists/Tips/Whatnot
Later in the game when you have high selling prices and you're able to buy the salves with price 300 from the church (Hit Salve, Evasion Salve and so on) there is a pretty easy way to make money:
Buy the salves in the church for 300 and sell them again in the workshop for more than that.
Warning: This does not work with low selling prices, if you're not sure just buy one and look at its selling price in the workshop.

With my shop stats: prices 316%, sales 300%, attract 300%, 80 stock.
With all salves fully stocked this yields for me:
About 130k per 10 days with 06 clerks.
About 415k per 10 days with 19 clerks.

The main time waster with this method is buying the salves and stocking them in the shop, since you can just use the forward button to make the time pass ;)
(As am I not aware of a method to buy or stock a big amount like 100 items at once with a few clicks instead of clicking a hundred times on the plus icon or holding the mouse button for quite a while)

This is not really a thread for asking questions, but since it's useful information to have here, and it's not here--

Saves are found at %LocalAppData%\Eushully\神採りアルケミーマイスター\SAVE

If you don't know how to find %LocalAppData%, just type it into the Run... dialog, which can be accessed by holding the Windows key and pressing R.

The saves aren't stored in the roaming profile, but in the local profile. Which is wrong btw, but Eushully did it like that, so... Also, %AppData% already points *inside* the Roaming folder.

It's actually in "%LocalAppData%\Eushully\神採りアルケミーマイスター\SAVE". %LocalAppData% is only defined on Windows Vista and newer though; if you're on Windows XP it should be somewhere like "%userprofile%\Local Settings\Application Data\Eushully\神採りアルケミーマイスター\SAVE". However, the "Local Settings" folder name is system language dependent; the translated name is not UI fluff like on Vista+, so you need to check for that too.

Some unlisted mutations for the mascot characters.

Orange Spira -> Purple Spira
Muddy Kettle -> Black Putettle
Charcoal Bucket -> Dark Gate Bucket
Cold Wing Fan -> Hot Air Fan

Also I think the eu card list is incomplete. At the end of my first NG+ I had 3 Purple Maid wings, 4 Pink Maid feathers and 5 of the other ones. And since I had already wasted 4 to make their main weapons that means that there are 21 eu cards total for feathers/wings instead of the 15 listed. I remember 2 being in Advent Bay, and one in another lvl 90 dungeon but I have no idea about the rest.

Post Re: Useful Lists/Tips/Whatnot
To continue off Aroduc's mention of maps with HP/SP/FP decrease for all units not of a certain element, the only other map besides the Misanshel escort mission that does this is, I believe, Mirage Forest. The only characters that are immune to the stat drains are:

Yuela (Beast Armor)
Emelita (Pumpkin Robe)
Aht
Crayanne
Stone Golem

The rest have their current (not total) HP decreased by 70 points (non-fatal) and current SP/FP decreased by 30 points every turn. Needless to say, it is a very difficult map with Sandstorm terrain eating up 4 FP with every tile. As far as I know, no item renders a character (who isn't already earth-aligned) immune to the HP/SP/FP draining. You may want to start stacking up on Breaths of Elyun. :V

Also, at some point (I'm not sure when, but it's very late in the game), two items become available for synthesis that seem to be intended to help you with some of the 2.0 dungeons, i.e.,

Valkyrie Falls (Every monster in the dungeon has a skill that causes instant death)
Phema Mountains (Every monster in the dungeon is capable of casting a wind spell that has a range of 5 squares and has an incredibly high chance of charming your characters as well as causing other status effects)

To counteract these circumstances, the 'Reaper Bane'' and Faithful Necklace' accessories render your characters immune to death and charm respectively.

Reaper Bane requires:
Mole Bracelet
Electric Rock
Ghost Essence

Faithful Necklace requires:
Fish Bracelet
Swan Grass
Ghost Essence

Apologies if this sounds like obvious shit, but I actually didn't notice those accessories until after I did those dungeons, at which point I was moderately seething with rage due to the ludicrous circumstances those dungeons had. Many Breaths of Elyun, Bloods of Revival, and Goddess Tears were wasted that day.... :<
