+++++++++++++++++++++++++

~ This FAQ is covers:

  + All the recipes I've found...
    - Except those recipes which are NOT worth the time (and cost) to make.


  + For basic information about the Alchemy Pot and how to use it, see: 
    UNDERSTANDING DQ-8's ALCHEMY POT.

~ The Alchemy Pot is a magical 'cooking pot'.
  - You use RECIPES to make a particular item.

  + INGREDIENTS are the items in aby character's personal inventory or that are
    in the ITEM BAG.


~ When ingredients don't make a useful recipe, the Alchemy Pot:
    - Blows its lid.
    - Items are returned to inventory.
    - And you are told to try again.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

~ The charts used in this FAQ have certain characteristics:

  + All items in the game belong in a specific category.

  + In each of the following sections:
    - The list of all items in a particular category is given first.
    - Immediately following:
      * A list of recipes for those items in that category that CAN be made.

 ~=~=~=~=~~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~

~ Here is a typical set of headings for the first list:


    ITEM'S NAME          | EFFECT | SELL | BUY |MAKE| USE IN RECIPE?
  _______________________|________|______|_____|____|________________


  + Description:
    - 'Y' (for yes) in the 'MAKE' Column indicates the item can be made in the
       Alchemy Pot.

    - 'Y' (for yes) in the 'USE IN RECIPE?' column indicates the item can be used
       in one or more recipes.
       * If an item can be used in more than one recipe, the number of recipes is
         indicated, for example, "Y (3)" means three recipes.

  + In the charts, cost to buy or selling price is in Gold Coins.

    - Items with cost written as: --

      * Can only be made with the Alchemy Pot
     OR...
      * May be found in T.Chests , barrels, etc., on your journey.


  + Recipes not included:

      * Where the cost is too high.
     OR...
      * Where the item made is WORSE than the ingredients it is made from:
        > Shown by $$$ in the 'MAKE' or 'Use in Recipe?' column.

      * For example:
        > RUSTY OLD SWORD (Attk = 45) makes the LIQUID METAL SWORD (Attk = 118).
        > You could (but why would you want to?) use the LIQUID METAL SWORD to
          make a RUSTY OLD SWORD!
        > So that recipe isn't included.

   NOTE 1: Buy Magic Water in Tryan Gully (after the party can fly).

   NOTE 2: IS EXPENSIVE BUT ....
           - It restores full MP.
           - Useful in the final battle with the DARK LORD.

RECOMMEND:
           - Make two for Jessica to carry.

           - Make two for Hero to carry.

           - Make one for Angelo (he can use Seraph's arrow to steal MP).


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

++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+  1-2.B. SPECIAL ITEMS  +
++++++++++++++++++++++++++


~ Valuable special items:

  + The THIEF'S KEY.
    - This Key opens many (but not all) of the locked Treasure Chests.
    - You get the Alchemy Pot in Peregrin Quay.
    - You also get the ingredients for the Thief's Key.
    - This should be the FIRST item you make in the Alchemy Pot.
      * Time to make: It takes about half a dozen battles when walking across the
        Field.
      * There is supposed to be a chime when the Pot is done, but it isn't very
        obvious.
    - Later, when you have the MAGIC KEY, the THIEF'S KEY can be used to make a
      BANDIT'S AXE.


  + The SAGE'S STONE is a useful item in battle as it restores 100 Hp to all in
    the party.
    - However, you will be able ot find one in the Black Citadel.


  + When the TIMBREL OF TENSION is used as an item in battle, it raises the
    tension of all party members one level.
    - This strengthens their attack.
    - Put the TIMBREL OF TENSION in the inventory of the person who has the
      weakest attack.

____________________|____________________|______|______|__________|______________


  * Can buy ONE Seed of Skill, ONCE ONLY in Arcadia.
    - It IS worth it.


$$$ (1) HOLY WATER can be made but it is available in just about every town you go
        to, AND very cheaply, so it isn't worth the cost or the time to make.


$$$ (2) Magic water can only be made with a Magic Seed.
        - you don't find enough of the seeds to make it worth while.
        - Later in the game you can buy some, for only 300 G.

   * The recipe for SAGE'S STONE is included but as you get very few ORICHALCUM
     or GOLD NUGGETS, it is expensive to make.
     + You can sell it for 20,000 G., about 8,250 more than the ingredients could
       be sold for.

     + You WILL find one in the Black Citadel.
       - Only one is needed and you get that soon enough to make a difference.

     + MYSTIFYING MIXTURE causes confusion when used in battle.
       - Unless you're into throwing things, you may not want to make these.

~ Since they are very rare, you may have to make some choices.

    NOOK GRASS
    GOLD NUGGET
    ORICHALCUM
    SAINT'S ASHES

___________________________________________________________________________________

------------------------------
- FOUR BUNCHES OF NOOK GRASS -
------------------------------

~ You are given 4 bunches of NOOK GRASS by Marek at Marta's (inside the cave behind
  the cottage) AFTER you defeat SIR LEOPOLD.
  + I ended up with a total of seven, but I can't remember where I got the other
    three.
    - The following monster was NOT on my Defeated Monster List.

  + A monster named HELLSPAWN may drop one when defeated.
    - Rumour suggests that it might appear in the BLACK CITADEL.

 NAME OF ARMOUR      |WHO|SELL  |    INGREDIENTS
_____________________|___|______|_________________________________________________
CRIMSON ROBE         |J,A|11,250|  SAGE'S ROBE + MAGIC WATER + NOOK GRASS
SUPER SPICY CHEESE(1)|   |   600| SPICY CHEESE + NOOK GRASS
_____________________|___|______|_________________________________________________


  + CRIMSON ROBE:
    - Would have been very useful in the BLIZZARD PEAKS area as it reduces
      ice-based damage.

    UNFORTUNATELY...
    - You don't get NOOK GRASS until well after that.

    HOWEVER...
    - This robe has a DEF = 82, so would be good for Jessica & Angelo.
      * Go get the NOOK GRASS as soon as you defeat SIR LEOPOLD.
        > See Marek in his apartment in Orkutsk.
      * And make two of the robe straight away.


  + SUPER SPICY CHEESE:
    - Has another less expensive recipe (see below).
    - You can sell:
      * SPICY CHEESE for 250 G.
      * NOOK GRASS for 600 G.    


___________________________________________________________________________________

----------------------
- THREE GOLD NUGGETS -
----------------------

  + You find three in the game.
  + A monster named DEMOCROBOT may drop one when defeated.
    - But I never met one, so I don't know.
      * Rumour suggests that it might appear in the BLACK CITADEL.

    - The DEMOCROBOT is #221 in the monster list and is a combination of four
      creatures (#S 222 TO 225):


    MONSTER NAME   | HP   | EXP  |GOLD |  ITEMS DROPPED       |ITEMS DROPPED RARELY
___________________|______|______|_____|______________________|____________________
221. DEMOCROBOT ...| 1520 | 1830 | 380 | Seed of Magic        | Gold Nugget
222. HEAD OF STATE |  412 |  320 |  60 | Soft Cheese          | Thinking Cap
223. BODY POLITIC .|  564 |  310 |  30 | Hard Cheese          | Magic Armour
224. RIGHT WING ...|  508 |  290 |  20 | Chunky Cheese        | Bastard Sword
225. LEFT WING ....|  396 |  280 |  20 | Highly-Strung Cheese | Power Shield
___________________|______|______|_____|______________________|____________________


  + You'd have to let it combine, which makes for a pretty fearsome creature.
    - And then you couldn't guarantee that it would drop a GOLD NUGGET!

- RECIPES USING A GOLD NUGGET -

     NAME OF ITEM       |WHO| INGREDIENTS
    ____________________|___|________________________________________________
      GOLDEN AXE        |Y  |       IRON AXE + GOLD NUGGET

      SAGE'S STONE      |All|     ORICHALCUM + YGGDRASIL DEW + GOLD NUGGET 
    ____________________|___|________________________________________________


  + CHOICE FOR GOLDEN AXE, Attk = 27.
    - When you get the recipe, it is described as a "blunt weapon".
    HOWEVER...
    - You can use the GOLDEN AXE to make MOON AXE, Attk = 60.
    - Relative Values in Gold:
      * The GOLD NUGGET can be sold for 5,000 G.
      * The GOLDEN AXE can be sold for 5,000 G.
      * The MOON AXE can be sold for 11,000 G., when Yangus has the KING AXE.


  + CHOICE FOR GOLDEN TIARA, Def = 43.
    - Relative Values in Gold:
      * The GOLD NUGGET can be sold for 5,000 G.
      * The THINKING CAP can be sold for 6,500 G.
      * The SILVER TIARA can be sold for  125 G (yeah, not much, huh?)
      * The GOLDEN TIARA can be sold for 26,000 G., when Jessica gets SUN CROWN.


  + CHOICE FOR SAGE'S STONE:
    - You can sell it for 20,000 G., about 8,250 more than the ingredients could
      be sold for.

    - You WILL find a SAGE'S STONE in the Black Citadel.
      * Only one is needed and you get that soon enough to make a difference.

___________________________________________________________________________________

--------------------------
- UP TO SEVEN ORICHALCUM -
--------------------------

~ ORICHALCUM can be used in seven, that's right 7, recipes.
  + You get one from Princess Minnie when you have given her 83 medals.
  + You can find three, possibly four.
  + And two different monsters may drop one.
  + And one (a BOSS monster) gives one as a prize when you defeat it.


        MONSTER NAME      |   HP  | EXP    |GOLD |  ITEMS DROPPED   |DROPPED RARELY

    ______________________|_______|________|_____|__________________|______________


  + METAL KING SLIME:
    - EVERYONE has to fight this at the start of the fight, as it usually flees
      after the second round.
      * Hero, & Angelo should use:
        > METAL SLASH with the UBER FALCON BLADE (two hits).
      * Jessica can use SUDDEN DEATH (knife skill = 100) with the best sword she
        can equip (or the FALCON BLADE, while not strong, it does give two hits).
      * Yangus should use HATCHET MAN (Axe Skills= 18) or that skills replacement,
        EXECUTIONER (Axe Skills = 66).
        > Alternately, he can use GRIM REAPER (Scythe Skills = 50) or that skills
          replacement, GRIMMER REAPER (Scythe Skills = 90).
    - Find in many places, particularly after your party can fly.


  + PANDORA'S BOX:
    - Typical mimic but much stronger.
    - Found possibly in the Black Citadel.


  + RUIN.
    A BOSS in the Citadel.

     NAME OF ITEM       |WHO  | INGREDIENTS
    ____________________|_____|____________________________________________________
     LIQUID METAL SWORD |H,J,A|     RUSTY OLD SWORD + SLIME CROWN + ORICHALCUM
     MEGATON HAMMER     |Y    |     CONQUEROR'S AXE + UBER WAR HAMMER + ORICHALCUM

     GODDESS RING       |All  |       RECOVERY RING + ORICHALCUM
     METAL KING SHIELD  |All  |      RUINOUS SHIELD + ORICHALCUM + SAINT'S ASHES
    ____________________|_____|____________________________________________________

~ There are six recipes here (the seventh is the SAGE'S STONE).
  + With seven ORICHALCUM, you have to choose what you think are most worth while.


~ TO HELP YOU CHOOSE:

  + The LIQUID METAL SWORD is the ultimate sword for Hero, Jessica & Angelo.
    BUT...
    - Hero can make a METAL WING BOOMERANG if he finds a METAL KING SPEAR.
    - Jessica can get her ultimate whip, the GRINGHAM WHIP (200,000 BACCARAT
      TOKENS) which hits all monsters.
    - Angelo can use ODIN'S BOW which has a higher attack.


  + MEGATON HAMMER is Yangus's ultimate Club.
    BUT...
    - The CONQUEROR'S AXE is almost as strong and the Axe skills seem to be better
      than Club Skills.
    - He also gets FLAIL OF FURY from Red, which hits all enemies.

      * And, when you have 100 medals, Yangus will get FLAIL OF DESTRUCTION.
        > No skills come with flails, but this one is VERY strong (ATTK = 125).


  + METAL KING ARMOUR:
    - The ultimate armour in the game for all four characters.
    - It can ONLY be obtained through ALCHEMY.
      * To make one of this armour for each member of Hero's party, you'll need:
        > Four LIQUID METAL ARMOUR for 50,000 TOKENS each in Bacarrat Casino.
          = 200,000 tokens altogether.
        > Four ORICHALCUM.


  + METEORITE BRACER:
    - This Bracer increases agility.
    - It may pay to make one (or two), to make the UBER FALCON BLADE.
      * RECIPE = FALCON BLADE + METEORITE BRACER
    - You'll get a METEORITE BRACER from Princess Minnie at 60 medals.


  + GODDESS RING:
    - Restores MP as the person wearing it walks in the field.
      * But it seemed to be very, very, very slow in doing that.
    - It does provide good resistance to SNOOZE, FUDDLE, and PARALYSIS type
      attacks.
    - It sells for 25,500 G.


  + METAL KING SHIELD:
    - The ultimate shield in the game.

    - You only find one RUINOUS SHIELD.
      * You may be able to get more, if you defeat HELL'S GATEKEEPER
      AND...
        > you're lucky!
      * I haven't met any, so I'm not sure where you'll find them.
        > Possibly in the Black Citadel.

    - Because the RUINOUS SHIELD is cursed, you'll also have to use SAINT'S ASHES.

     ______________________|_____|_____|____|__________________|________________


RECOMMEND:
  + Make four METAL KING ARMOUR.

  + If you want the double-hitting power of a sword:
    - Make two METEORITE BRACERS and use them to make two UBERFALCON BLADEs.

  + For other items, your choice....


___________________________________________________________________________________

-------------------------------
- SAINT'S ASHES ARE PURIFYING -
-------------------------------

~ Being able to get SAINT'S ASHES is a little easier that the other rare items.

  + Rumour has it that you may be able to buy it somewhere, but I haven't found
    a store that sells it.

  + You can get it as a prize if you become champion of MONSTER ARENA RANK C.

  + You can exchange 5,000 TOKENS in Bacarrat for each one.

  + You find three or four.
   
  + Certain monsters may drop one.
    - You'll find them in Dark Empycchu or Black Citadel or ???.

    - The WIGHT KING is a little more likely to drop SAINT'S ASHES than the others.

~ Hero gets the first Cheeses (8 Plain Cheese) as a reward at the Waterfall Hut.
  + You may find a variety of cheeses in chests or pots or T.Chests (treasure
    chests)
  + You won't be able to buy them, so you'll have to make them.
    - Some varieties may not seem be worth the time; however, they can be sold for
      quite good amounts.
    - But it may be a while into the game before you find appropriate ingredients.
    - During the Bazaar at Argonia, you can buy some of the cheese ingredients.

  + You may find cheese on the journey, but you usually have to make it.
    - The more potent cheeses take more than a single process.
    - For example to get Scorching Cheese (read '-->' as "needed to make"):

      Plain Cheese --> Spicy Cheese --> Super Spicy Cheese --> Scorching Cheese
   

  + If Hero selects 'ITEMS' in battle and uses a particular type of cheese,
    Munchie will use HERO's turn to cause the following effects:

- MONSTERS WHO DROP ROCK SALT -
-------------------------------


~ Only three Monsters in the whole game may drop ROCK SALT.

___________________|____|____|____|______________|________________________________

   NOTE 1: BER is one part of the JABBERWOCKEE.
           - You'd have to make sure the four critters didn't combine.
           - Take out JAB, the head, first.

   NOTE 2: I found the Rockbomb was much more likely to drop ROCK SALT.

-  CHEESES THAT GIVE THE BEST PROFITS -
---------------------------------------

~ As you get further into the game, the need for money increases.

  + However, the cheeses that sell for the most money, need PREMIUM MOULD.
    - PREMIUM MOULD requires YGGDRASIL LEAF which costs 1,000 G.

    - Although they don't fetch as much money, the following cheeses are worth
      making and selling:

                           |SELLS FOR|COST TO MAKE                 | PROFIT
       ____________________|_________|_____________________________|__________
        SPICY CHEESE       |   250 G.|  70 G.                      |  180 G.
        CHILLY CHEESE      |   300 G.| 110 G.                      |  190 G.
        MILD CHEESE        |   400 G.|  40 G.                      |  360 G.

       ____________________|_________|_____________________________|__________


   NOTE: '!' Since Rock Salt can only be found (not bought) or obtained from
             monsters, the main cost is your time in fighting those monsters.

   +                           +
   +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+


~ There are five types of equipment that can be equipped on each ally.
     * Weapons     (attack)
     * Armour     )
     * Shields    ) Defensive equipment
     * Helmets    )
     * Accessories (generally increase attributes)


  + When you buy equipment, the screen will show if that item can be equipped
    on any person in the party.
    - For example:
      * 'Leather Armour' can be equipped by the Hero, but not by Yangus.
      * Yangus can equip a 'Leather Kilt', but Hero cannot.
      * 'Wayfarer's Clothes' can be equipped by both.


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

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+  2-1.A. EQUIPMENT & RECIPE LISTS  +
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

~ First, there is a list of all items for a particular tyoe of Equipment.

  + Following that, is the list of ingredients for each item that can be made.
    - Some ingredients can only rarely be found.
      * You have to choose which item you'll make when you have the right
        ingredients.

  + Which person's items should be made first?
    - Some items you don't need to choose as the recipes are unique.
      * But if you do:
        > Armour:  Since Jessica usually has less HP than the others, I gave her
                   upgraded Armour/Shields/Helmets first before anyone else.
        > Weapons: At the early stages of Alchemy, I usually chose Hero or Yangus.
                    Later, I chose whoever seemed to need the upgrade most.
        > Healing Items: At the beginning, you can make few items of equipment so
                    concentrate of getting the higher levels of healing items.


~ When $$$ appears either in the MAKE column or the CAN BE USED IN RECIPE column:
  + The item can be made, but either:
    - The COST IS NOT WORTH IT.
    OR...
    - THE EFFECTIVENESS IS REDUCED.

  + For example:
    - Rusty Old sword (ATTACK = 45) can be used as one ingredient to make the
      'Liquid Metal Sword' (ATTACK = 118).
    - You can also make the Rusty Old Sword from the Liquid Metal Sword, but why
      would you want to?
      * It has a lower attack and can't be sold.


~ Recipes for items marked with $$$ are NOT included in this FAQ.

REMINDER:
  + The RUSTY OLD SWORD makeS the LIQUID METAL SWORD.
    - The reason why $$$ is in the LIQUID METAL SWORD's 'use in Recipe' column is
      that you can use LIQUID METAL SWORD to make the RUSTY OLD SWORD
    - But why would you want to (compare attack powers)	?

  + You can use the UBER DOUBLE-EDGE SWORD to make the cursed DOUBLE-EDGED SWORD.
    - But, again, why would you want to?

  + NOTE: In some of the following charts.

    - Because of space needs, the WHO (can equip) column has only letters to show
      which member(s) of the party can equip the item.

      * H = Hero (the main character in the game).

      * Y = Yangus (the rough and tough guy who owes Hero his life).

      * J = Jessica (the sister of Alistair who was killed by Dhoulmagus).

      * A = Angelo (who is banished from the Abbey by his half-brother, Marcello).

          + To get the Gringham Whip:
            - Exchange for 200,000 tokens at Baccarat Casino.

            - NOT EASY, BUT IT CAN BE DONE!!!


  NOTE 2: Many staves can be used as items in battle (must be in the person's
          personal inventory).
          + In the list above:
            - (ZAP), for example, is a spell that comes when the staff is USED AS
              AN ITEM in battle.
            - Remember ZING (STAFF OF RESURRECTION) has a 50% chance of being
              effective.
              * That does NOT mean it will work every second time!

   +                             +
   +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+

~ Defensive equipment is defined as:

  + ARMOUR  = coverings for the body.

  + HELMETS = head coverings.

  + SHIELDS = additional defense.


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

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+  2-3.A. ARMOUR FOR ALL  +
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++

  + Each type of defensive equipment (Armour, Shields, Helmets) are listed
    separately.
    - Items are listed in order of increasing defense.
    - After the first list (of all armour), the Alchemy recipes are listed.

  + In the following charts, 'DEF' = Level of Defense.
    - The number given is the total DEF for that particular item.
      * If a defensive item with DEF = 20, is replaced by an item with DEF =30.
        > Only the difference (in this example, 10) is added to the person's
          defense.

___________________________________________________________________________________

-----------------------------------------
-  SOME ARMOUR IS TOO EXPENSIVE TO MAKE -
-----------------------------------------

~ EXAMPLES (YANGUS'S ARMOUR):

  + YOUR CHOICE:
    - The Bandit Mail (defense 80) costs 9,350 G. to make (if you have to buy
      HEAVY ARMOUR).
      * But it costs 13,000 G. to buy.
        = You may decide its worth it.
      HOWEVER...
      * You can make the DARK ROBE (defense 87) for no cost (the ingredients are
        found or gotten from monsters).
        = The Cloak of Evasion (you find two):
          > Costs 3,000 G. to buy at the Paddlers tent on the way to Argonia,
            and sells for 1,500 G.
      * And even if you have buy one to make a DARK ROBE:
        = The DARK ROBE sells for 10,500 G.

    - Chain Mail is also expensive to make.
      * It only costs 500 G so it is cheaper to buy (at Peregrin Quay).
      * a chain whip COSTS 2,200 G. to buy and sells for 1,100 G.


~ Items marked with $$$ are definitely too expensive to make, so their recipes
  are not included.


___________________________________________________________________________________

-----------------------
-  LIST OF ALL ARMOUR -
-----------------------

~ This is a long list so I have split it where the defensiveness increases above
  50 points.

  + The DRAGON ROBE is a prize for beating Rank S at the Monster Arena.

  + THe DANGEROUS BUSTIER is an ingredient for the MUCH stronger DIVINE BUSTIER.


   NOTE: Because this chart is a long one, it is split into four sections.
         - First section Defense is less than 25.
         - Second section Defense is between 25 & 50.
         - Third section between 50 and 100.
         - Last section above 100.

~ Finding Nook Grass:
  + Hero has to defeat Sir Leopold before yhe'll be able to get any.
    - Then go to Marta's house and talk to her son in the cave.
      * He gives you five and that's all you can get in the game.
      UNLESS...
      * The monster HELLSPAWN (#229 in the Empycchu Cave) happens to drop one.

+  2-3.B. SHIELDS  +
++++++++++++++++++++

~ At the beginning of the game, it is cheaper and saves time to buy shields.

  + After completing the RUINED ABBEY, you can make the WHITE SHIELD.

  + Later, you can make several more.

___________________________________________________________________________________

-------------------
-  CURSED SHIELDS -
-------------------

~ Two shields are cursed.

  + The only purpose for the RUINOUS SHIELD is to make the METAL KING SHIELD.

    - The RUINOUS SHIELD is cursed.
      * You can purify it in the ALCHEMY POT by adding SAINT'S ASHES.

    - If Hero, Yangus or Angelo is equipped with it:
      * It cannot be removed, so you'll have to go to a church for the wearer to
        be purified.
      * While equipped, the damage from FIZZ, SIZZ, CRACK, BANG, AND WHOOSH type
        spells is INCREASED!

  + The only use for the THANATOS SHIELD is to make the GODDESS SHIELD.

    - THANATOS SHIELD is also cursed.
      * It too can be purified with SAINT'S ASHES.

    - While equipped, the wearer cannot act in the first turn of a battle.
      * The ONLY way to remove it is to go to a church for the wearer to
        be purified.

    - If you are patient, you'll find one later in the game.
      * As soon as you get it, use it to make the Goddess Shield (for the recipe,
        press [Ctrl F] and look for "Goddess").

- LIST OF ALL SHIELDS -
-----------------------

  + NOTE: Although the Ogre Shield has a lower defense than the Dragon Shield,
          it has greater protection against Fire damage.
          - There appears to be only one in the game, so you may prefer to
            have Yangus equip this shield.

$$$ HERMES' HAT doesn't require magic to ZOOM.
    - But Mercury's Bandana requires an AGILITY RING.
      * Don't make more than one HERMES' HAT.

 ++ Golden Tiara costs 12,225 G to make but you can sell it for 26,000 G.
    - If you already have a SILVER TIARA, it isn't that expensive.
