1.0: Introduction

Hello, this FAQ was created because I read on various forums that
people where having a hard time creating imbued equipment. 
In response, I have decided to make a FAQ to help those of you make the 
most powerful equipment in the game. This is my first FAQ ever, so I 
hope it helps you all to make this game even more enjoyable. 
Thanks and enjoy!

1.2: Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Does it matter if I use Alice or Therese when imbuing items?
A: Yes, the girls will only imbue items based on the phrases given.
For instance, the Airblade can only be crafted by Alice, if you give 
the same items to Therese, the effects of the Vitae will be added.

Q: Does it matter what order I use the Vitae based on the phrases
they give me?
A: No, as long as you have the right weapon and the 2 corresponding
Vitae to go along with it, you'll get the rare piece you're after.

Q: Where can I find the Sandals that are a component for various
accessories?
A: The only way that you can obtain the pair of Sandals is by 
creating a solid relationship (full heart w/ arrow through it) 
with Kai the Samurai.

Q: I don't have the Vitae that you listed below to make ________,
where can I get this Vitae?
A: The only way to obtain Vitae is by doing side-battles (area on
map where two swords are crossed, they are side-battles fought late
in the game) along the main story, or they can be obtained by 
characters whom you build a strong relationship with.


1.3: Purpose of this FAQ

This guide is to be used by players of Luminous Arc who want to
imbue/synthesis the most powerful weapons, armor, and accessories, in 
the game.  


1.4: How to use

The way to use this guide is by finding what location/town has
the particular piece of equipment you're looking for, along with
the necessary Vitae to complete the transformation. I have 
convinently placed the phrases at the top of each apprentice's 
FAQ for those of you who wish to solve the riddles on your own.
Below the phrases of each apprentice are the answers to the ones
I could figure out so far. *NOTE* THIS FAQ IS STILL IN THE WORKS,
PLEASE DO NOT EMAIL ME SOLUTIONS YOU HAVE FOUND, THEY WILL NOT BE 
ADDED! *END NOTE* There are some rather powerful items to be made 
in Luminous Arc, so good luck.
