Processing Wonderfuls and Ores

If you take your unprocessed gems and ores to Mira's Accessory Shop in the Garmon Mines district, Mira will refine your items into beautiful gems and diamonds to make beautiful jewelery, and useful metal to take over to the Blacksmith's to upgrade your tools.

Please note that it costs 35 Gold to refine every item. Be sure you bring a lot of money to the Accessory Store if you have a lot of Ores and Wonderfuls!

Also note that in the chart below, the percentage of success will be listed for each ore and gem. The more of an item you bring to be refined, the higher chance of success you'll have to get the desired ore or gem.

For shipping all the processed and unprocessed Ores and Wonderfuls, Mira will award you with a trophy. To receive the award, simply ship all Ores and Wonderfuls (including all the refined items that come from the mined items) and open the door the next day (after you've made your shipment). It's a nice trophy that you can put anywhere in your house, assuming it has room!

Making Accessories with refined items

After refining Ores and Wonderfuls, the processed materials can make Accessories, items that can be used on the character to change their appearance. Benefits of such items can affect how some contests and relations turn out. For example, the Fashion Contest at the New Year's Festival allows players to compete against the computer rivals. Jewelry can boost the score total of the player. In another example, characters the player wants to pursue as a romantic interest can also receive accessories as gifts. This will boost their friendship level if the player gives the character the correct items.

The below chart shows accessories and their requirements. PLEASE NOTE: Every accessory listed in the chart can be one of the following:

  • Brooch
  • Ring
  • Pendant

Please also be aware that all materials used are refined items. The chart is presented in alphabetical order.
