Reconstruction Level 3

Category Material Requirements Gold
Housing 5 Ponio Hoof Seal, 3 Royal Volff Hide, 3 Warning Lamp, 2 Retro Diode 120,000G
Commerce 5 Piranhax Fishmeal, 8 Silver Antol Fibre, 3 Sour Turnip, 2 Mossy Panel 100,000G
Nature 3 Caterpile Silk, 3 Hox Daylight Spur, 3 Oil Oyster, 3 White Plum 99,000G
Special 3 Flexible Selua, 3 Steel Selua, 2 Rainbow Slug, 2 Azure Hollycock 130,000G
  • Housing - Ponio Hoof Seals are a drop obtained from Ponios on the Fallen Arm. They are found in abundance around the Giant Mechon Debris landmark during the day. Caelum Volffs which drop Royal Volff Hides are found in around the same area, except they spawn at night instead. Both are relatively easy enemies to farm, however if you'd prefer to trade, then you can grab Ponio Hoof Seals from Eleqaand Royal Volff Hides from Xekit at 5✰ affinity. Warning Lamps are a collectable found across the Fallen Arm, but they can be traded with Karlos at 5✰ affinity as well. Retro Diodes are also a collectable, however they are found in the Mechonis Field.

  • Commerce - Piranhax Fishmeal is dropped by Fair Piranhax, which can be found on Radiocarpea Coast on the Fallen Arm. It is a relatively rare drop, and there's no available trade option, so you may have to farm for a while. Alternatively, if you are able to buy items from the Arch Nopon Sage, then you can buy Piranhax Fishmeal for 2,900 Noponstones. Silver Antol Fibres are a rare drop obtained from slaying Antols on the Fallen Arm. There are a fair few in the 5th Pulse Zone, however, you are able to trade for them with Shilx at 3✰ affinity, so it may be easier to just trade for this particular item, as you need 8 of them. Sour Turnips are a collectable and they are also found on the Fallen Arm. You may also trade for them with Eleqa at 3✰ affinity with Hidden Village. And finally, you will need 2 Mossy Panels, which are collectables found in the Mechonis Field.

  • Nature - If you would like to progress sooner rather than later with the reconstruction of Colony 6 then it is advised that you occasionally turn on Casual Mode, which makes combat far easier and allows you to fight enemies with far higher levels than yourself. For instance, you require 3 Hox Daylight Spurs and 3 Caterpile Silks, both of which are obtained from high level enemies on the Bionis' Leg. The Caterpile Silks are dropped by level 75 Royal Caterpile in the Windy Cave. The Hox Daylight Spurs are obtained from defeating level 75 Dark Hox and White Hox found near Raguel Bridge. If you feel vastly underlevelled you try using Casual Mode so that you can progress faster through the reconstruction. Alternatively, you can obtain Caterpile Silks through overtrading with Sylviane in Colony 9, and you can trade Hox Daylight Spurs from Bozatrox in Machina Refuge (Mechonis Field) at 4✰ affinity. Oil Oysters and White Plums are fairly common collectables across the Fallen Arm. However, you can also trade for the Oil Oysters with Shilx at 3✰ affinity. The White Plums can be traded for with Prox at 3✰ affinity too.

  • Special - Rainbow Slugs and Azure Hollycocks are both collectables. Rainbow Slugs can be found on the Fallen Arm, whilst Azure Hollycock are found in Mechonis Field. Flexible Selua and Steel Selua are materials obtained from Selua enemies only found in the Bionis' Interior. You may only access the specific area of the Bionis' Interior where these enemies are located after you have travelled there in the main story quest. This is a late game area and is accessible a little after the events at the Mechonis Core. The Steel Selua is dropped only by Wool Selua and the Unique enemy, Victorious Gross. They are exclusively found at the Pars Sympathica Tower landmark. It is a bit of a rarer drop, so you may have to fast travel to the landmark using the map repeatedly, so the enemies respawn. Flexible Selua are dropped by Largo Selua, which are found across the Bionis' Interior. They are most common south of the Interior Landing Site landmark, and west of the Spinal Nerve Tower landmark.

Completing all reconstruction categories up to level 4 will result in the residents gifting you a Debuff Resist V gem. You will also receive the bonus of Street Lights when completing all of the reconstruction categories up to level 4.

After you have upgraded all of the categories up to level 4, the town is really starting to take shape!
