The Ring of Might is probably among the best accessories in Star Ocean: The Second Story R. It grants you a potentially gigantic attack buff – and it’s not even that hard to create! Here’s how you can make the Ring of Might for yourself.
How to craft the Ring of Might in Star Ocean: The Second Story R
You can make the Ring of Might by using Rainbow Diamonds and the Craft Specialty. You also need to use a Fighter character like Claude to make it, so be sure he’s properly leveled in Crafting. The hardest part of making this ring is finding the Rainbow Diamond since this is a very rare material at the start of the game. Luckily, there are a handful of places to find one near the start. But once you do have it, you’ll have a ring that doubles your attack rating in Star Ocean: The Second Story R. And using it along with the Berserker Ring gives you an incredible damage boost.
The best chance to get your hands on a Rainbow Diamond early on is with the Challenge Missions. In the Specialist tab, there’s a mission for using Crafting 200 times. And as a reward, you’ll gain three Rainbow Diamonds, three Moonstones, and three Philosopher’s Stones. Crafting 200 items may sound like a lot, but it’s not in the grand scheme of the game. You can simply buy lots of Iron and craft a bunch of junk to get those numbers up.
Alternatively, you can use Pickpocketing to try and steal someone else’s Rainbow Diamond. The best person for this is Elmyra, The Newlywed Wife in Arlia. You can find her in the house just to the left of the town’s save point. The odds of taking the Rainbow Diamond are very low so be prepared to save scum quite a bit. It’s all worth it to get the Ring of Might in Star Ocean: The Second Story R.
I would also recommend getting Claude’s Crafting level to at least level seven to make using the Rainbow Diamond a 50% chance of success. I’d also strongly advise you to make the Soldering Iron with the Machining Specialty since it gives you a 30% chance of not using up the material during Crafting. Theoretically, you could make a nearly infinite number of rings but you’d need to be extremely lucky to do that. Or at the very least prepared to save and reload a lot of times. I can not confirm nor deny whether I did this to get four Rings of Might in Star Ocean: The Second Story R.
