Alchemy Stone

Alchemy stone is an item you can equip on the equipment slot. Once activated, the Alchemy Stone will give beneficial effect for a limited time period. You can only equip one Alchemy Stone at a time. But depending on the situation, you can always swap different Alchemy Stones. The three types of Alchemy Stones are ‘Destruction’, ‘Protection’ and ‘Life’. You’ll receive AP, DP and Life skill benefits when you activate the Alchemy Stone. The quality of the beneficial effect will vary depending on the Grade and Level of the Alchemy Stone. There are 4 Grades and 8 Levels available for Alchemy Stone.

 

Crafting Alchemy Stone would be considered the final stage of the Alchemy skill. Not only is it difficult to craft Alchemy Stone, it is also difficult to increase the Grade and Level of the Alchemy Stone.

However, the benefits of equipping a high Grade and Level Alchemy Stone is equivalent to enhancing an equipment to the next stage.

It is a good idea to learn the basics of Alchemy before you try crafting an Alchemy Stone.

Crafting Alchemy Stone

The option to craft Alchemy Stone is available for Adventurers that reached Alchemy Skilled 1 or higher. You’ll need to use the Alchemy Tool using the required materials to craft Alchemy Stone. Out of the materials needed to craft Alchemy Stone, the most important material is ‘Shining Powder’. You can obtain ‘Shining Powder’ with a low chance when you polish Elixir, Crystal, Oil, Blood or other items. In addition to ‘Shining Powder’, you also need Sinner’s Blood, Powder of Time, Pure Powder Reagent and Clear Liquid Reagent. You will randomly receive Destruction, Protection or Life Alchemy Stone from a successful Alchemy craft. There is also a probability that you’ll obtain a ‘Broken Alchemy Stone Shard’ from a successful Alchemy craft. Although you can’t use ‘Broken Alchemy Stone Shard’ for anything, you can sell the item for 5000 silver coins. As mentioned previously, any adventurer with Alchemy Skilled 1 will have the option to craft Alchemy Stone. However, your chances of successfully crafting an Alchemy Stone is correlated to your Alchemy level. This means the higher the Alchemy level, the higher your chances of successfully crafting an Alchemy Stone.

 

▲ Adventurers with Alchemy Skilled level 1 or higher can craft Alchemy Stone. But your chances of successfully crafting Alchemy Stone will increase at higher Alchemy level.

 

 

Alchemy Stone Grade and Level: Not all Alchemy Stones are equal.

The Grade of the Alchemy Stone is distinguished by the color of the text and the Level by the prefix. Similar to equipment grade, the Alchemy Stone in white name is the lowest grade. The Grade from the lowest to the highest is in the following order; green, blue, yellow. The stage of the Alchemy Stone is indicated by the prefix of the item name. The ‘Imperfect’ grade gives the lowest quality of beneficial effect. With a high chance you’ll obtain ‘Imperfect’ Alchemy Stone from crafting. The Level from the lowest to highest quality is in the following order; Rough, Polished, Sturdy, Sharp, Resplendent and Shiny. Don’t be disappointed if you have a low Grade and Level Alchemy Stone. For that, you can use the ‘Polishing’ and ‘Growth’ feature to increase the Grade and Level.

 

▲ Although difficult to craft, a high Grade and Level Alchemy Stone yields great benefits!.

 

 

Activating Alchemy Stone and Recharge

After you equip the Alchemy Stone to the equipment slot, press U to activate the Alchemy Stone and receive the beneficial effect. The durability of the Alchemy Stone will decrease by 1 every time it is activated. 

The duration of the beneficial effect from ‘Destruction’ and ‘Protection’ Alchemy Stone duration and 3 minute. The cooldown time is also 3 minute. Because of that, you can use the Alchemy Stone consecutively when the cooldown time resets.

Since Destruction and Protection Alchemy Stone share the same cooldown time, it is not possible to receive two types of beneficial effect at the same time.

The ‘Life’ Alchemy Stone beneficial effect duration as well as the cooldown time is 10 minutes. After you equip the Alchemy Stone, go to Inventory (press I) > Equipment page. When you’re on the Equipment page, check the small box next to the Alchemy Stone to enable auto mode. Once auto mode is enabled, Alchemy Stone is automatically activated once the cooldown time resets.

You can use the ‘Recharge’ feature to restore the lost durability using oil, blood and reagent. The amount of oil needed for Recharge will depend on the level of the Alchemy Stone. But since there is no limit in the type of Oil and Blood used, it is relatively easy to craft and obtain those materials.

The use of Alchemy Stone and Recharge feature is not limited by your Alchemy level. Unless your goal is to make an Alchemy Stone of the highest quality through Polishing and Growth, there is no demerit for leaving Alchemy Skilled level 1.

▲ Go to Inventory (press I) > Alchemy. The amount of materials required for Recharge will vary depending on the lost durability value.

 

 

Alchemy Stone Polishing and Growth Feature

When you upgrade the Alchemy Stone, it will increase the quality of the existing beneficial or it’ll increase the types of beneficial effects available. Before you can use the ‘Growth’ feature, you need to use the ‘Polishing’ feature to increase the Alchemy Stone EXP (80%~150%). The reason is, because the ‘Growth’ feature is can only be used once the Alchemy Stone EXP is 80% or higher. Also, when the Alchemy Stone EXP is higher, the success rate will increase as well.

The ‘Polishing’ feature provides EXP to Alchemy Stone. The polishing material will vary depending on the type of Alchemy Stone.

To polish Destruction Alchemy Stone, you need to use Pure Ores.

To polish Protection Alchemy Stone, you need to use Sturdy Plywood.

To polish Life Alchemy Stone, you need to use Special Crops.

 

▲ Use the ‘Polishing’ feature to increase Alchemy Stone’s EXP. Different Alchemy Stone requires different polishing materials.

 

After you increase the Alchemy Stone’s EXP to the 80%~150% range, you can use one Black Stone (Weapon) to perform Growth. When the Growth is successful, either the Grade(color) or Level(prefix) will increase. Sometimes with a low chance, there is a possibility that both the Grade and Level.

When the Alchemy Stone Grade increases, the types of beneficial effect available will increase. If the Level increases, the quality of the existing beneficial effect will increase. When you successfully increase the Grade or Level of the Alchemy Stone, the Alchemy Stone EXP will reset to 0%.

 

As the Alchemy Stone level increase, you’ll have to further raise the Alchemy Stone level.

Alchemy Stone level Alchemy Skill Level
Imperfect Alchemy Stone Apprentice level 1
Rough Alchemy Stone Apprentice level 1
Polished Alchemy Stone Skilled level 1
Sturdy Alchemy Stone Professional level 1
Sharp Alchemy Stone Artisan level 1
Resplendent Alchemy Stone Master level 1
Splendid Alchemy Stone Guru level 1

 

The grade (color) will not decrease for failed Growth. However, there is a chance that the level (prefix) will decrease for failed Growth attempt. When performing Growth on Resplendent and Splendid Alchemy Stone, the Alchemy Stone can be destroyed from failed Growth attempts. You also will lose Alchemy Stone’s EXP for failed Growth attempts. The amount of EXP lost is half of your existing EXP. For example, if you have 150%, you will lose half of the current EXP making it 75% EXP for a failed attempt. If you have 80% EXP, but fail, then you will have 40% EXP remaining.

 

▲ Not only is it costly to perform Growth, but there is a chance that the level will decrease for failed Growth attempts.
