How to increase gathering quality in Atelier Ryza 2
To get better materials in Atelier Ryza 2, you will have to upgrade your gathering tools and unlock and increase your gathering quality via the skill tree. Increasing the gathering quality skill can be done inside the skill tree by putting points into the respective node on the skill tree; the more points you put in the gathering skill, the higher quality materials you will gather from gathering points.
To upgrade tools, you will need to either unlock and make better ones or upgrade them via the synthesis crafting system. With synthesis, you can add traits such as chopping and all way up to masterful chopping to your tool, and doing so will increase the quality of materials you gather. That said, to upgrade a tool like this, you will need to add materials to it just like you would when making items through synthesis.
It also follows the same rule of thumb, the more and better materials you add, the quality of the item will increase. You can also use recipe morph to unlock new higher tier versions of items you have unlocked; we recommend using this to get better versions of your tools in the game.
