In Atelier Sophie 2, Gathering items are one of the most important things that you can get, and most of them come along pretty early in your quest.
The reason that these items are so important is that Gathering is a huge part of this game, as you will not be able to proceed very far without many items. Quest items are very important, health items, weapons, and more are all created using materials found in the overworld, and using gathering items will help you harvest better, stronger materials to help you make better, stronger items.
However, once you create an item, unlike most traditional JRPG games, you’ll have to go into the menus and equip these items, before you can use them. Following this guide, we’ll teach you how to go about adding these items to your arsenal so you can take full advantage of their powers.
How to Equip Gear in Atelier Sophie 2
Many items that you need are found scattered around the vast lands of Erde Wiege, ranging from Princess Grass to harder-to-find items that can only be salvaged from monsters in the surrounding areas. However, there may be times that you come across large flowers, big boulders, and fishing holes that you are not able to get into. Even if you crafted the Grass Scythe, the Pickaxe, or the Fishing Rod, you may find yourself running up to one of these previously inaccessible locations to find yourself unable to harvest your spoils.
However, this is easily fixed by going into your pause menu. Once going into the pause menu, you’ll want to head down to Items, and select that. You’ll have two different categories, Gather and Adventure, which each houses 6 different slots to equip items. Gather items help you get materials that were previously impossible to get, and Adventure items will help you along your way, allowing you to equip items that will increase your speed in the overworld and other buffs that will affect you and your party. This is where you’ll also find items, such as the Tent that allows you to camp in the overworld near bonfires.
