LoM: Altering/tempering - Mystic cards?

Post by Kimiko » Sun Sep 30, 2012 12:50 pm

Okay, so I'm playing Legend Of Mana again, and it is good :heart:

Making equipment is easy enough, just pick a material and a weapon/armor type, and you're done.

The fun/not-so-fun starts when you want to make your basic equipment more special. Adding elements with coins is easy enough, but what I'm looking for are these mystic cards that appear sometimes when you're hammering in random stuff. I've found lists describing what does what on GameFAQs and elsewhere, but they don't tell me the most basic thing of all: how to get a particular card to appear.

More specifically, what I'm after is the Wanderer card. The FAQs tell me it comes from the Wad of Wool additive, and that I need to have at least one level in Shade and Dryad for it. The elements are easy enough, just hammer in some Shade coins, and either Dryad coins or seeds. But then what do I need to do with this stupid wool to have it result in the Wanderer card? That's what I want to know. Whenever I try to hammer it in, nothing happens, not even after I hammer something else in afterwards to push the effect out.

Can someone help me please? :]

I think that sometimes tempering stuff in results in a card going in the next time you temper something. Have you tried like two wools in a row or something? Or try to temper in a wool, then an elemental, that way you get the elemental card to "push" the wool card in.

It's been a long time since I've touched LoM, but I seem to remember some "latency" on cards going in sometimes.

Only person I know who could really answer this would be Demiforce, but it looks like it's been 2 years since they visited.

Yes, I know about that invisible card slot and that you need to add something else after the card you want. I tried both adding two wads of wool and a wad of wool followed by an elemental coin. Neither worked :(

Well, eventually I succeeded in getting a Wanderer card on my robe, but it was a little messy. I ended up hammering in a bunch of random stuff and got two Pixie cards and some minuses in the stats. Meh -__-
