Know More Alchemy! - Synthesis can be enjoyed by simply inserting materials into slots. But if you think this is too simple, "attributes" add another layer to Synthesis in this game!
Know Alchemy! - When you come up with a recipe, the next step is to actually Synthesize it. Slotting materials on a board is the characteristic of Synthesis in this game. It's easy, yet profound.
Recipe Ideas - In this game, battles, gathering, events, and other things can be connected to recipe ideas. You will naturally come up with recipes as you continue your adventures. Check the reference book if there's a recipe you're curious about.
