In Atelier Lydie & Suelle: The Alchemists and the Mysterious Paintings players are able to synthesize items while in battle for immediate use through Battle Mix and Extra Mix, with each opening up a range of new strategic options. Battle Mix focuses on crafting special Battle Recipes that enhance weaponry or cause a drastic change to the battlefield conditions to give the players a tactical advantage.
Extra Mix utilizes pre-synthesized items and allows the player to add new characteristics in ways which were previously impossible. Extra Mix allows for the creation of the Enormous Bomb, which has a wider explosive radius and deals a much heavier blow then a normal bomb. Alchemy is your friend, so experimenting with various ingredients can lead to unique outcomes, with plenty of different items to match each player’s gameplay style.
