This Best Atelier Ryza 2 Items Guide will teach you the top 5 best core items in Atelier Ryza 2 so you can know which items are worth spending your time perfecting.
If you’re playing Atelier Ryza 2, you know there’s a big focus on consumable items and crafting the best possible Atelier Ryza 2 items you can. In fact, the main character’s best weapon is specifically geared to give bonuses to her Core Items, so you’re going to want to make sure you’re rolling with the best Core Items available.
As with most lists of this nature, it’s somewhat subjective. You may disagree with my rankings, but that’s ok. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. I’ve gotten my characters to level 100, crafted and used every item available, beaten the secret boss and done every quest in the game, so I feel qualified to give my opinion. Still, that doesn’t mean it’s perfect.
Without further ado, here are the Top 5 Best Atelier Ryza 2 Items.
5. Witch’s Potion – Atelier Ryza 2 Best Items
Witch’s Potion doesn’t deal any damage but it’s practically indispensable for the secret boss. It lowers all enemy stats and inflicts a significant amount of stun damage, all at the low, low price of 2 CC.
Essences are essential to crafting a Witch’s Potion. If you don’t make use of a Wind Essence to unlock the Black Dragon Effect, it’s almost completely useless as an item. The essence unlock for the additional CC reduction is incredibly important too.
Witch’s Potion may not inflict any damage, but it’s great for debuffing bosses and other large, difficult to defeat enemies. Well worth a spot among your Core Items.
4. Philosopher’s Book – Atelier Ryza 2 Best Items
Philosopher’s Book is one of the 3 big damage dealing items (the other two being the Lunar Lamp and the Genesis Hammer). Of them, it deals the most damage, it deals damage of every element, including non-elemental damage, and it also has the highest CC cost.
Philosopher’s Book is the ultimate spell in the game, and for good reason. When you use the Philosopher’s Book, it deals an absolutely devastating amount of damage. Despite its high CC cost, if you make good use of essences, you can get it down to 4 CC
As with all core items, essences are key to unlocking its full potential.
3. Genesis Hammer – Atelier Ryza 2 Best Items
Genesis Hammer is great and I rank it higher among the Atelier Ryza 2 items than the Philosopher’s Book for primarily two reasons: it can clear random encounters by hitting multiple enemies, and it deals a significant amount of stun damage.
With essences you can get the CC cost down to 3, which makes it usable after just one combo. Perfect for annihilating random encounters. Additionally, its stun damage makes it an excellent tool to use during boss fights.
Because it has more potential uses, I’d rank the Genesis Hammer slightly above the Philosopher’s Book.
2. Elixir – Atelier Ryza 2 Best Items
When it comes to Atelier Ryza 2 items, the Elixir is indispensable. You should absolutely craft the best possible Elixir you can as soon as it becomes available.
A fully maxed out Elixir, making use of essences, will revive all party members, heal everyone to full, give your whole team HP regeneration, and remove all status effects/debuffs all for a measly 2 CC.
The Elixir is so good that I’m honestly not sure why other healing items exist. If you’re going to craft only one item when it comes to Atelier Ryza 2 items, Elixir should be it.
1. Astronomical Clock – Atelier Ryza 2 Best Items
My pick for the best of all the Atelier Ryza 2 items has to be the Astronomical Clock. This thing is stupidly powerful. It basically gives you every buff you could ever want.
A maxed out Astronomical Clock, again making use of essences, will greatly increase all stats for all party members, max out everyone’s evasion, instantly set you to max Tactics level (increases by 3, but in practice it almost always maxes it out since you’re very rarely below 2 Tactics if you have the CC to use an item), and gives the caster an obscene speed increase for 4 CC.
This thing basically puts your whole party into beast mode. It’s fun, it’s super powerful, and it doesn’t take much to activate. Having this among your Core Items dramatically increases the combat effectiveness of your entire party.
That about covers it when it comes to the Top 5 Best Atelier Ryza 2 Items. Be sure to check the Main Page for more content and visit the Atelier Ryza 2 section for more guides related to Atelier Ryza 2.
