Posted 04 June 2016 - 06:16 PM #1 A4 - Questions about crafting recipes...

According to Kimmer's recipe book, I need quality crystals for wands. I haven't found anything except the 3 regular crystals and focusing crystals. Where can I get the right crystals for the recipes? Does it mean "beautiful crystals"? I've had focusing crystals in my inventory, but I never have the correct components when I click on her. Thanks in advance. :)

It's been a while, and unfortunately Strategy Central doesn't seem to mention this one, but I think you're right and you need beautiful crystals.

Edit - It's been a while so I'm not sure if there are 4 or 5 types

There are 5 different types of crystal.  Flawed, lovely, beautiful, quality, and focusing crystals.  Focusing crystals are needed for some armor items. Quality crystals would show up in the mines south of where you start in storage and much later in the game.

No, there are 3 types of regular crystals:

Flawed
Lovely
Beautiful

There are also Focusing Crystals which are a completely different type of item, and much more limited in quantity.

"Quality Crystals" do not exist.

Thanks for replying. I've been all over the map, but I've never found any crystals labeled as "quality". I find plenty of the other 4 types, though. I'll try having a beautiful crystal in my inventory with the other items to see if that works.

Also, do I need to save emeralds and rubies later in the game for crafting? I normally sell those, but I'm about to leave the Tower Colony and head west on this save. Thanks!

2 emeralds are needed for a radiant shield.  Emeralds and rubies are used for some wands, but I'm not sure for this game.

Thanks! Like you, I forget what items I need to save for each game in this series.
