Now Playing Tracks


I was bored so I decided to try my hand at one of those palette challenges that have been going around Tumblr lately. I asked some friends to choose a pallet and a character and linkapics chose pallet 93 and Juudai (From Yu-Gi-Oh! GX)

It’s the first time I’ve really gone out of my comfort zone and used different colours to the “norm”, so it was a very challenging and fun exercise!

Atelier Rorona Plus Discoveries

So, it’s entirely worth it to get strong enough to challenge the hard dungeon in the Overtime segment, since that seems to be the only place where you can actively get the absolute best traits.

So far, traits I’ve gotten from the place are:

Elemental Guard, which covers every elemental defense buff

Hard Coat, which increases power and reduces damage taken

Deity Power, which adds powerful Elemental Damage— basically the ultimate form of Rainbow Power (gotten from Spirit Power x Spirit Repel) (Spirit Power is gained from Red+Blue x Green+Gold)

Heroic Mind, which increases stats when fighting a boss or an enemy that’s stronger than you

Vitality Drain, which absorbs 25% of damage dealt with normal attacks (Absorb HP x Life Giver)

Soul Eater, which adds more HP absorption to attacks

Fatal Pain, which increases Critical Hit chance and skill critical hit damage

Godbreaker, which increases item effect by 125%

Not only that, but one of the bosses you encounter dropped two different seeds for me: A Mineral Seed, which came with the Deity Power and Vitality Drain and Heroic Mind, and the Plant Seed, which comes with other traits that increase skill power/reduce MP cost/increase defense. And both of these can probably be registered with Tiffani (I’m still in the dungeon, so I haven’t checked yet.)

But yeah, this stuff is great— I can’t wait until I can get them onto weapons. (also, yes, I did find the World Spirits now.)

I finished the main story of Atelier Rorona Plus yesterday, and got the True Ending, and by extension, the Good and Normal Endings. I also got Iksel, Tantris, Lionela and Esty’s ending(I think that one was technically her ending.) I also…

Oh hey, also as a discovery! You can manipulate what traits and quality results from the average mystery seeds! I put Rainbow Power and Hand-Crafted onto my normal seed synthesis (and S-rank is easily obtainable since you keep re-synthesizing your seeds, and it increases the quality each time), and as a result, everything that grows from those seeds has those two traits! You can get up to three traits carried over, it looks like!
